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.
    Agree. Basically said that "what we do isn't good enough. Let's get cute."

    Exactly, but I thought I remembered that we basically tried to take VS out of coverage situations about mid-season?

I would've attacked Belue because he's had issues with taller WR's.
    Right on the mark.

    Its only a 'Gutsy' move if it works... Milliner owned them.

    Well....imagine we're in a coaches meeting and I say.."I think we should pick out their absolute best corner and throw at him all night"..

    Am I dumb or gutsy?

    I'm not even sure we had a weak side last night. Belue had some great breakups and Golson had nowhere to go. I suspect Milliner got a lot of work because you end up throwing at your last checkdown because that's where you are looking when you've run out of options.

    It may of started off as gutsy but ended up being stupid.

    To be fair, a lot of the first half throws were to Eifert when Dee was covering him. I think their gameplan was "get the ball to our best offensive weapon at any cost." They really found success in the second half going to their WRs because we weren't giving them Eifert. They should've adjusted earlier; we were clearly trying to take the run and Eifert out of the game and taking chances on their WRs.

    Only thing I can think of is they thought they could just throw jump balls all night and Eifert would come down with them. Honestly, I haven't watched more than about a quarter's worth of domer football all year because I just can't stand the overhype when they play, but I suspect that has been their MO all year. Just throw it up and let a better athlete catch it. Only problem is, they weren't the better athletes last night.

    Anywhoo, brilliance on Kelly's part that I'll gladly accept.

    I would say it's gutsy the first few times you try it but, down right stupid when you do it all night long with little to no success. I loved every second of the call though, thumbs up to Brian Kelly!
