    Gutsy? Or stupid? Picking on Milliner

    Why in the world did notre dumb continue to try to isolate and pick on Milliner? Did they see something on tape that my crimson glasses haven't seen?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm glad they did, but I sure didnt understand it

    I think they knew milliner was going to be left on an island most of the night and they wanted to try to get the one n one matchup. I think they really went after Belue in the second half more and had a bit more success with it. After the tipped pass pick, I don't think they went back against Dee. I would've attacked Belue because he's had issues with taller WR's.

    I'm guessing but I think it was a case of an inexperienced QB throwing to a chosen receiver, and not analyzing his matchups before the play.

    They tried to establish something that wasn't there. They went after Belue but the game was in hand by that time. Even though they went after him it was mixed results. It was nothing they could do.

    I think they came out cocky and wanted to show him up. It didn't quite work out for them.

    Re: Gutsy? Or stupid? Picking on Milliner

    When they did it while throwing to #80, it made sense. He has such a huge height advantage that it overcame Milliner's ability. But when they did it deep down the field, it was sheer stupidity.

    While this win was all Alabama, Kelly didn't even give his team a chance when he decided early on in the game to go away from their offensive strength - their running game. Once they made that move, the game was over. They had no chance of tiring Alabama's defense and getting back into the game late. Kelly let the score change his play calling, and that should never happen early in the 2nd quarter.

    Yeah, so was I. But actually he played a pretty good game. He'll only get better.

    they would have done better putting their TE in the slot and matching him up on Sunseri when he was in the game. i thought it was gutsy going after Dee. i wanted to see a pick six so bad...

    It was dumb. For some reason teams have done it all year. They must see something I don't.

    Trying to take a page out of our book from last year? Where we kept throwing at the honey badger. Only exception is Milliner is a much better player than him.
