    It just eliminates the chess match between coaches, personnel wise. Like I posted before the UGA game, our best beats their best every time.

    Why is it that Bama is always the victim of these?

    Garcia, Mettenberger, and now Manziel.

    Because Bama is who we care about. It happens to everyone.

    It isn't that you are always victim to these, it is that it requires this sort of performance to derail Alabama right now. Other teams falter/fall to lesser teams because they are not focused or simply not as good/deep as advertised. Alabama seems to be prepared every week, has great depth and is motivated - so it takes this sort of performance. Frankly, you remember them because they are the only "blips" in the last 2 seasons, in which you are completely destroying every team that doesn't get this sort of performance from their QB. The lone exception - the regular season game against LSU last year - a game lost as a result of 5 missed FGs.

    What does that tell us? That Alabama can lose, but it will take one of those type of games for it to happen.

    Re: Will ND go the hurry up offense route?

    Realized that I didn't address the question posed in the thread title - I think that ND will try, but it will hurt their game plan if they do it too much. They cannot outscore Alabama in an offensive slug-fest, so if they try an up tempo game, they damage their chances of winning. Their best hope is to keep Alabama close and hope that Alabama makes a mistake.

    The more chances they take with their offense, the worse their chances are of winning that type of game - same goes for Alabama, IMO. That is why I expect this to be a game that both teams put on their running games, not their QBs.

    My guess would be Kelly will only run a hurry up package when he sees the personnel packages he likes on the field. I'm sure both coaches will put in plays/schemes especially for the game but I can't see either coach deviating too much from what got them there.

    In a Al.com article, Coach Kelley said they would use the hurry up offense but at selected times.

    Yes, I did. He was a below average QB throughout his college career except for that one game. In that game, he played like Joe Montana. What in my post makes you think that I did not see that game?

    Re: Will ND go the hurry up offense route?

    I think what also hurt us with the hurry up was that we didn't have the opportunity to get the right personnel on the field. Sounds like this may no longer be a problem as our young players have come along.

    Yeah, I was really talking about the last 2 seasons. The USCe games was in 2010, when Alabama played way below its potential. Still boggles my mind to think that what might have been Alabama's most talented team under Saban lost 3 games that season.
