Who cares about the offensive ranking? Last year's offense was effective and efficient. We didn't achieve our goals last year due to defensive breakdowns and Mett having a bad half against Ole Miss.
I will take the 2013 offense any day of the week. The 2015 offense could be as potent, except ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Which QB Was Better? - Mike Linebacker on 11/18/14 at 5:52 pm|
I think the comparison to 2004 is fair and instructive. I think the fans thought Russell should have played more in 2004. Here, we have a similar situation except the incumbent is worse and the young phenom is getting less experience. Moreover, at least Randall was an upperclassman who had signif...

[quote]And yet Nick still would not play Russell over him.[/quote]
Russell played in 11 games. He went 73-144 (50.7%) for 1,053 yards, 9 TDs and 4 INTs.
In contrast, Harris has "appeared" in 8 games, going 25-45 (55.6%), for 452 yards, 6 TDs and 2 INTs.
From the above, you can credibly arg...

Jefferson, 112 carries for 171 yards (1.5 YPC) and 1 TD
Jennings, 86 carries for 165 yards (1.9 YPC) and no TDs

I think you are wrong. The higher you go, the more teams are invested in you. The more opportunity you get to prove yourself. Look at Brandon Graham of the Eagles. First round pick, wasn't doing well for two years and is finally showing out in year three. If he were a fourth round pick, he would...

It is very hard to beat a disciplined team like Alabama, that rarely commits penalties. Remember back in 2009 when they won their first national title, Bama went eight consecutive games without a holding penalty.
