He equated the football to a green fruit eaten on 4th of July and not fumbling

We were not in punt safe for the fake. Saban said that's why he changed it to the fake because LSU was in normal D and that's how they practiced the play. LSU was out coached yet again!

We were in punt safe before and after timeout

It's like everyone knew it was coming too...that's the sad point of it...

Recruits must be wondering why does a coach bench you for the biggest game of the year after you fumble

What were we in then? Why were our linemen standing up?

I didn't listen to Saban talk about this, but if true, then our coaching staff needs to be called out on this point!! The fact that Saban called a TO on a 4th down, wasn't that a warning sign??

Changes the momentum in the bama game. With 33 why even give the no disciplined 44 the ball. At least they sat him down but too late. That was the game changer



1) Copeland has carried several times and the play call was right, he just made a mistake and the Bama guy made a play.

2) With Copeland in the game the first drive, we rushed for roughly 40 yds. After they sat him, we rushed for maybe 40 yds the rest of the game.

3) Sitting your best FB who is 270lbs and a beast in the Bama game because he fumbled is stupid. IF you want to punish him, then don't hand the ball to him anymore, but we needed his blocking ability.

Saban said that if LSU was in punt safe they were going to fake. LSU wasn't in punt safe so Bama burned the timeout (I think they burned it becasue their 11th man was late getting on the field, but whatever). After the timeout, LSU was in punt safe and Bama ran the fake.

In short:
Punt safe = fake
Normal D = Bama punting

I think everyone is overlooking that Copeland was devastated on the sideline after the fumble and knowing that he had a serious concussion from falling in the shower weeks before probably played into Miles decision. That white boy fullback wasn't exactly a big drop off from Copeland. Copeland has shown from his past that he can be a head case and I guess that was a factor in Miles mind. Whatever. It don't affect my pay any.

I watched neighbors and he appeared to hold his blocks longer than copeland. Bamas lbs are studs. Mosley stoned both of our fbs.

I blame the lack of running game on selection of backs more than who played FB. Give 33 the ball!

not only the momentum changes, but the sequential order or "scoring"..huge factor.
