All the constant denial from that clique of Miles Apologists, Pumpers, Cheerleaders, Buttock Smoochers and Worshippers has proven to be just exactly what most of us always knew. We were running an outdated 1970's Big10 style conservative offense with plays being scripted by Bo Schembechler himself.
In walks Camerban and the offense is like night and day immediately.
I hate to break it to you and your ilk, but your desperation to validate your idiotic criticism of Miles the past 5 seasons just proves how wrong you've been.
The "outdated 1970's Big 10 style conservative offense" you try to pin on Miles is the EXACT same offense Cam Cameron has made his living on.
You see, what clowns like you will never admit is it's not that Cameron walked in and totally threw out the offense like it was "night and day", but it is that we finally have the personnel to run the same offense in right way, namely a true SEC quarterback.
The offense we saw Saturday night was the EXACT same offense we ran to perfection to dissect Saban and Bama last November, as well as MSU and OM. The only thing different between Saturday and last year was that we now have a monstrous offensive line, the same thing that has made Alabama so difficult to stop the past 5 years, and the added weapons at receiver allowed Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham to play and thrive in their natural positions.
I started a thread about this inevitable improvement on December 7th of last year, "infamously"
, before Cameron was even fired from Baltimore. I doubt you'll care to read it, but just in case I'm wrong about you, HERE IT IS
Of course, Mett also looked like a seasoned veteran instead of the still learning first year starter as well, and that is where Cam's presence will be felt most. While Mett would have improved this year anyway, Cam is a phenomenal teacher of the quarterback position, and Mett's progress is that much more under Cam instead of a good QB mind in his own right in Krag, but nowhere near Cam's ability to mentor a QB. Cam's influence is already being felt, and will only be felt more as Jennings, Rettig, and Harris move through the program with under his tutoring.
Haters like you will refuse to see that the reason Cameron was such a fantastic hire is BECAUSE HE AND MILES' PHILOSOPHIES MESH SO PERFECTLY TOGETHER.
Your claim of "night and day" difference in the offense refers to PRODUCTION, not philosophy, and the production at the end of the year in 2012 was virtually the same as last night without Cam.
Like I said, Cameron was a HUGE signing, but not because he is cleaning house. It's because he's a great teacher and football mind, and his pedigree of success in the NFL is unmatched by every single coach in college football, including Nick Saban. Yes, he will provide an improvement in play calling, but Miles hasn't called the plays through your blue period of criticism anyway.
Face it, you've been wrong about Miles all along. Crowton destroyed Jarrett Lee in 08, and JJ in 09, and the only thing that kept the program afloat was Miles recognizing that the only strength that this team had was hunkering down and running the ball.
That self aware philosophy got us 11 wins in 2010 and an undefeated SEC Championship in 2011 with two QBs that had been stripped away of any potential they had to be great in the SEC. That was not due to Miles' pro style philosophy, but Gary Crowton's stupendous schemes once he moved away from the pro style foundation laid by Jimbo, which was also a perfect fit with Miles.
Cameron and Miles are cut from the exact same cloth, and only your pathetic resentment, bitterness and refusal to admit that you were wrong about our coach for 5 years will keep you from admitting that simple fact.
