Saban was being destroyed this year by an immobile Zach Mettenburger. Then we decided to run the ball three times and lost.




This. We had them beat. Our inability to convert short yardage 3rd downs and the prevent defense at the end of the game killed us.

To me it takes an offense that can pass the ball to beat Saban. The mobile QB buys you more time. Our you can have multiple WR sets and get the ball out of the QB hands quickly.

Saban always stops the run first and makes you make plays from the QB position.

Saban recruits size, put the big defenders in space and they are more likely to fail. AKA aggies.

2010 JJ is bull shite.

pretty much this

ALABAMA 21, LSU 24
--------- 9 plays, 74 yards, TOP 2:10 ----------

Cade Foster kickoff 67 yards to the LS3, Pa. Peterson return 20 yards to the LS23
L 1-10 L23 LSU drive start at 03:17.
L 1-10 L23 Michael Ford rush for loss of 3 yards to the LS20.
L 2-13 L20 Jarrett Lee at QB for LSU.
L 2-13 L20 Stevan Ridley rush for no gain to the LS20.
L 3-13 L20 Timeout Alabama, clock 02:49.
L 3-13 L20 Jarrett Lee pass complete to Rueben Randle for 47 yards to the UA33.
L 1-10 A33 PENALTY LS personal foul (Josh Dworaczyk) 15 yards to the UA48.
L 1-10 A48 Stevan Ridley rush for no gain to the UA48.
L 2-10 A48 Timeout Alabama, clock 02:02.
L 2-10 A48 Jo. Jefferson at QB for LSU.
L 2-10 A48 Stevan Ridley rush for 3 yards to the UA45.
L 3-7 A45 Stevan Ridley rush for 4 yards to the UA41.
L 4-3 A41 PENALTY LS delay of game (Jo. Jefferson) 5 yards to the UA46.
L 4-8 A46 Josh Jasper punt 32 yards to the UA14, fair catch by Marquis Maze.
--------------- 6 plays, 31 yards, TOP 02:59 ---------------

A 1-10 A14 ALABAMA drive start at 00:18.

JJ is not going to complete a 3rd and 13 -- He threw for 2 whole yards in the last 4 series of the game.

If Lee doesnt get that 1st down, Bama gets the ball back with 2:30 on the clock. Bama had just scored on a 74 yard drive in in 2:10 (kinds sorta like they did to us this year).

It's a stretch to call JJ a mobile QB. Take out a long run from each season and his average is < 3 yards a carry.

3rd times a charm for Rob Bolden?

And all you armchair quarterbacks were freaking out when we tried to complete a pass to end the Clemson game.

2nd and 2 is exactly the same situation as 3rd and long
