    The question is will the design of them change at all.
    Yes, he likes RPOs, but he also loves screen passes and the power run game.

    Here is a video that he produced. I have not watched it, but my BiL says that it is essentially the Sark/Kiffin offense broken down.

    I think screens must have caused Locks physical pain, but he sure didnít like to call them. I sat there watching teams bringing the house and teeing off on Tua, yelling for him to call a screen to slow down the rush.

    And with Tua's amazing accuracy and quick release, just imagine how much fun it'll be to call those kind of plays.

    Pete was in the Press Box. He had to see the personnel on the field and then make a call to the sideline. The sideline then had to relay the call. Even if Tosh relays it as quickly as humanly possible, it takes 3 or 4 seconds to hear it and relay it. Then, based on any O shift, either Tosh was making the checks or, he had to wait for Pete and that delays getting the check to Mack by 3-4 seconds. In the end that could explain why the D looked like they were lost/confused at times.

    In a way one could say if Pete put together the OU came plan and was calling the D, he showed to be a good coordinator based on Q1. The D game out and ate OU up in the first Q. Once OU made adjustments, the delay in getting checks to Mack created issues. (Again assuming Pete was calling the D from the box)
    Hmmm. I wonder why Golding was in the Pressbox in the first place. Why couldn't they have swapped spots? So many questions...

    Check out the old article on how they manage the Game week: https://www.sbnation.com/a/college-f...ches-work-week
    I'm not trying to say Golding is not capable or that sort of thing, but... I'm just not sure how we got to the point that a lot of people are like yeah, just completely hand the defense over to Golding, but please keep Kelly away from the DC job. If Saban wanted to do that the entire time, he never had to promote Tosh. Golding went from facing C-USA teams, to facing championship caliber teams, that's a big step up.

    I also think that's where people, for what ever reason, are selling Kelly short.

    FSU faced Clemson and Watson in 2015. They held Clemson to 23 points, their second lowest total of the season. Clemson scored 40 on Alabama that year.
    In 2016, FSU gave up 37 to Clemson. Clemson scored 35 against Alabama.
    In 2017, FSU gave up 31 to Clemson, while in the process of having a really bad season. Alabama held them to 6 (clearly he's not Pruitt).

    Thing is, once you total that up, and he gave up 91 to Clemson those 3 years, and then Alabama gave up 81. Now that's not great, that's not ok let's do what ever the genius says. But it does show that he's capable of going toe to toe with the big boys on defense. So, he brings an element of been there done that, that Golding doesn't really have.

    In four meetings with Clemson, the most Kelly gave up was 37 (they gave up 17 in 2014). Alabama gave up more than that to Clemson twice in the past four meetings.
    Apologies if I said anything that could be construed as a personal insult.

    Don't know how true that could be, but it would explain a lot of the problems getting folks shifted and defensive audibles called.
