First it was 2nd and Kirby, then the fake field goal and then Fields walking away...……………...3 blunders in a row......…….Fromm is a gutsy guy, but he is not the type QB you need in this new age of college football. Bet Smart is kicking himself for letting Fields transfer to tOSU in favor of Fromm.
And you need pass rush specialists and turn them loose.Coach Smart’s system is same as Saban before Hurts and Kiffen. It’s to play not to lose and count on defense. Saban learned we have to play to win and take advantage of the offensive rules. Until Smart can open it up, he will be Richt 2.0. He will be 10-2 every year. I think he realizes that and maybe next year he will start to adapt. College Football has changed so much the past 5 years. I think Bama will start making some changes to defense next year and maybe sprinkle in more zone coverage. It’s so difficult now because the RPO/Zone read offenses have great athletes now. These offenses are no longer for football programs who had inferior talent. It is so difficult to cover superior athletes man on man in these wide open offenses. Almost have to play bend but don’t break and then go man coverage in the red zone when the shortening of the field helps.
