    Nick Saban would have put J T Daniels in the game in the second half.

    Saban would have switched QBs as soon as his starter was failinng. He did it withh Hurts and Tua and beat the Dawgs both times. Kirby still has to learn that lesson. Maybe he will make the change and start JT for the playoffs. Let's hope so.

    Number 1 is right. Blitzed too much and left the slant option over the middle open. Left corners defending for themselves when hot target. Number 2 is wrong. Bennett was afraid of getting hit. He always looks to his left and if it is not their he usually either runs or throw into double coverage because he doesn’t want to get hit.

    Maybe JT Daniels will get some snaps in the Peach Bowl

    Our offensive line actually played really well except the last quarter where we basically had to throw every down to try and catchup

    Well, here it is again. I wish I could say all of it was a surprise, but it's pretty much as expected:

    • Bennett played 60 mins (as I anticipated) despite multiple interceptions and a couple more that could've been. I will keep saying it. Remember how Bama put it in a Freshman Tua in the 2nd half to beat us? What did we do to adapt? Nothing. We had lost the game by halftime.
    • Bennett is an excellent COLLEGE level QB, but Bama played at an NFL level today and we needed to be able to score 50+ and we can't do that with Bennett.
    • We haven't played a team (up until now) that hadn't totally fallen apart. The highest ranked team we beat this year is currently #22.

    The good news is that there should be no question that we're top 4. The Oklahoma State loss was a big help there and so the only other 1-loss team we'd be fighting against would be Notre Dame and they are no threat. The other good news is that we have time between now and our next game, so there's time to make changes.

    The bad news is that Smart doesn't like to "shake things up" and Bennett will likely be starting even if it's a rematch against Bama.

    The really, really BAD news is that this one of those came-down-to-a-single-play type of game. They dominated us. We couldn't throw. We couldn't catch and we couldn't stop Young. Young, someone who only runs as a last resort, had more rushing yards than our leading rusher. Bama out rushed us. They outpassed us. We were freaking 3-12 on 3rd downs (wasn't that one of JT's specialties?). Heck, Bama gave us 85 yards in penalties: almost more than we ran.

    I'm not sure that we'll have much of a chance in a rematch.

    Bennett doesn’t want to get hit? He completed a number excellent passes, keeping his focus down field while knowing he was going to get pounded after releasing the ball. Did we watch the same game? 🤔

  • Dogman912Dogman912 Posts: 760 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    Hey, remember when BA AND THE GANG, were team Bennet... what's sad is you didn't even see this coming did you....

    NO MATTER HOW GOOD OR GREAT THE DEFENSE IS YOU HAVE TO BE A THREAT TO THROW IT OVER THE TOP!!!

  • plrdawgplrdawg Posts: 137 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Auburn gave us a Blueprint on how to beat Alabama, But Kirby didn't use it. Why? Because he wants to use it when we see them again in the Play-offs?

    Auburn played man coverage 90% of the game, and sent EVERYBODY after the QB with no time to throw into the man coverage.. They sacked Young 6-7 times, and he had his lowest production of the year,,, one week after his best career day passing at Arkansas....

    Did Kirby sacrifice this game, like he did in the first game against Auburn in 2017, and beat them in the second (more important game)?

    KS' obsession with SB IV will cost us the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. HE HAS SAID ALL YEAR HE PLAYS THE BEST PLAYERS TO GIVE US THE BEST CHANCE TO WIN. HE HAS NOT PLAYED THE BEST, THE MOST IMPORTANT PLAYER ON THE TEAM.

  • plrdawgplrdawg Posts: 137 ✭✭✭ Junior

    We never really went after the Alabama QB until midway of 3rd quarter. We went man coverage, and rushed 6 players and stopped them several times. Until the pick-6

  • MontanaDawgMontanaDawg Posts: 1,073 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    @kirkhilles....gave us 85 yards in penalties (probably the only reason we scored on one drive was due to penalties) and was without their 2nd best receiver in Metchie for the 2nd half. It didn't matter.

    Young will win the Heisman unless he implodes at some point. Our Defense was atrocious. Stetson was average. Both those things together are not going to win you a Championship on any level.

    SB4 wasn't on the field when Bama scored 41 points. Our supposed 'elite' defense got exposed, especially in all the blown coverages in the secondary. Nothin SB4 (or JTD) could've done would've fixed that.

  • DeppDoggDeppDogg Posts: 296 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    Let's call it the Mater Dei statement game. Bryce Young > Heisman?

    Top Mater Dei QB of the last 20 years? Standing on the UGA sideline. JT Daniels.

    What a story-line. Kirby in love w/his "Rudy" movie fantasy.

    Not enough defense. Not enough offense. Can't win without them.
