    ND practicing uptempo in Miami

    I won't link it but AL.com has a video of, I believe, ND's Thursday practice where they're practicing uptempo. Maybe they intend using it more than just occasionally. They looked good doing it, running to the new line of scrimmage and getting a play off.

    ND practicing uptempo in Miami

    That's Brian Kelly. He wants to go fast. He just hasn't quite gotten the personnel to do it yet. It can back fire on you though. It makes a really quick three and out and that talented but not very deep defense could tire out. If they are smart they will play us the way they played Stanford and slow the game down, not speed it up.

    Sometimes uptempo can work against the team who uses it too

    My thought in watching the video was making uptempo work is more than running to the line of scrimmage and having a play ready when you don't have a defense in front of you.

    Does anyone think Bama's offense will also try some uptempo during the game?

    Re: ND practicing uptempo in Miami

    don't understand why poor offensive teams go up-tempo. i know from reading another site that ND thinks going up-tempo with 2 tight ends will give them some match-up advantages like A&M had vs us but if your offense is a weak link why make it run more plays, faster? seems strange

    eifert will get his catches (9 or 10x caught 4+ this year) but there's not a LB crew on their schedule like the Tide have

    We've done it a little, but I don't think we'll really do it unless they present us with a personnel grouping we want to exploit just so they can't sub guys in.

    I think that is the reason they'll try uptempo. They want to create a mismatch and since they have a RB and TE that can also flex out, they'll look to spread us out after they show a more base offense.

    This would be my concern if I was a ND fan. Kelly might be trying to install too much for this game and change their approach too drastically. If their offense sputters with an uptempo, they really don't have depth at all on defense; I'd expect to see their D mirror the LSU defense if their offense stalls.

    maybe they should try the (triple) option. goergia southern showed that we were vulnerable last year. maybe they could get a street magician to play qb for them since johnny futbol was so successful against us.

    it sort of reminds me of this scene from OBWAT

    The LSU complex. "Go uptempo that'll beat 'em."

    Look Coach knows this, we know how to adjust. We have had in game practice on this throughout the season.

    Yes, if AJ sees something he thinks we can exploit...
