I don't think a new OC will level the field as much as some think. We'll still be using the 'Bama playbook and terminology with the OC being able to add some here or there and make adjustments, but the guys who have been around for a while (Milroe and Simpson) will still be ahead in 'knowing' the system. I think Milroe will get a shot, but based on what we've seen, the new OC would have to be the best ever QB whisperer ever to get milroe truly ready by season start. He's got a lot of tools - they just need a lot of polish.
So, I found that part interesting. Let me ask you something: What was the difference between BOB's and Daboll, Locksley , Kiffin play callings? The usage of the TE. BOB didn't' utilize that until Auburn game.
Rees' hiring will shift the focus back to the running the ball physically and the usage of TE, and ability to throw the ball down the field... so to me, that is a game changer for offense and to me, Rees will level the field as much he can because he is that good.
On Milroe- I don't like to bash players, I don't like to talk about them in a negative way because they're still a young kid in college trying to earn education, and I have huge huge respect for him as a man on and off the field. So with that being said... From what I've heard... For him to have a shot, He has to improve significantly this spring, summer and fall to show he can throw the ball. Bama is already looking for a transfer QB, and likely will get one after spring. With that being said, there is good chance Milroe will transfer after spring. I just don't see him as a starter for Alabama. Milroe will be a starter, but I don't think it'll be at Alabama.
Milroe, Simpson and Holstein and Dylan are likely to compete for job, and it'll be narrowed down to two for summer and fall. if they don't impress this spring/summer... We'll see a transfer qb starting for Alabama this fall.
