Mett did throw about 3-4 passes that easily could have been picked off, but he played with heart all night despite an OL that couldn't do shite. I too was befuddled by the play calling last night. We had little success, especially in the second half running the ball, yet we ran it more than we threw it
Because Bama was covering with 6 and rushing 5. The correct play was to run.
Bama forced the RB to try to sweep to the ends or bounce out. Our RB should have slammed into the holes and try to bust out from there.
Even with Bama covering with 6, a couple of those covering were in zone reads....so, it allowed these players to keep the ends sealed when LSU tried to sweep or the RB tried to bounce out.
