re: I know it's delusional - Ash'sProstheticHand
Well done. I figured it would be about 50-10. I was spot on with the offense until our garbage time score, but damn the defense really came to play. After watching Arkansas' RBs run over us all game I expected more of the same from Alabama. Other than a few big runs that was not the case at all. ...

Offense was about what I expected (a lot of nothing with a few big plays thrown in), but the defense played far better than I thought they would. ...

[quote]2 more years. He will get it and damnit he should. I don't want someone else coming in taking credit for what he's built. If he can't get it done in 2 more, he's done. But let him see this through.[/quote] Good lord. A coach doesn't need two presidential terms to demonstrate that he's dece...

re: I know it's delusional - Ash'sProstheticHand
[quote]You watch. May be closer![/quote] I'd love for you to be right, but I'd be absolutely shocked if you were. Alabama beat their last 2 opponents by roughly one hundred thousand to three. Meanwhile, we needed a 4th quarter comeback at home to take the lead against South Carolina. Just not see...

re: We're 4-1, about to be 4-2. How do we finish? - Ash'sProstheticHand
I'd put worst case at 5-7. All of our next 4 are easily losable games, and Ole Miss and LSU are both road games. We'll very likely win 1-2 of those, but losing the lot isn't inconceivable, especially with a true fish qb. ...

re: I know it's delusional - Ash'sProstheticHand
Not trying to be the perpetual pessimist, but Saban feasts on this type of opponent. His defense has enough experience to grasp his technical scheme and plays, so they aren't just getting by on athleticism (which they also possess in spades). They will be fast and confusing. They will disguise th...

re: I know it's delusional - Ash'sProstheticHand
You can prevent unforced turnovers, which we obviously need to do, but you can't expect a true fish qb who's facing new, devious blitzes and relentless pressure behind a shaky OL to avoid all of them. He's probably going to throw 2-3 picks. That's just what happens in this situation. ...

Georgia and Auburn are better than good. They look like top 5-10 teams. We now know State isn't great, but they can still be pretty good. ...

re: We're 4-1, about to be 4-2. How do we finish? - Ash'sProstheticHand
It's too early to say that State has fallen apart. Georgia and Auburn are really freaking good. It's totally possible that State is a good but not great team that simply ran into a buzz saw with back to back top 5-10 matchups. They ran for almost 400 yards against us last year, and most of those ...

re: I know it's delusional - Ash'sProstheticHand
There's a decent chance that the Alabama defense outscores our offense. Meh pass protection, true fish qb, young receivers, Noel fricking Mazzone... Yea we're gonna get trashed. ...

[quote]Ceiling is 10-2. The only truly unwinnable game is Bama.[/quote] Have you seen Auburn's defense? It's top 5 in the country and is going to absolutely destroy Mond. Yes, there's always the puncher's chance for us to complete a few huge, game-changing plays (happens in a few games every year...

re: Sumlin Will be our Coach Next Year - Ash'sProstheticHand
That said, it doesn't much matter. Arky and South Carolina aren't very good, and we struggled with both of them. So Auburn and Alabama are almost certainly losses, and I bet we'll lose at least 2 of @Ole Miss, @Florida, @LSU, and Miss State....

[quote]With all the young talent on the team being developed, [b]I wouldn't be that upset about it either[/b][/quote] UCLA was arguably the biggest choke in CFB history, and it couldn't have happened without commensurately horrific coaching coming from Sumlin and Co.

re: Our Offense - Ash'sProstheticHand
Exactly. It's not like we'd solve all our problems if we started using the Patriots' playbook. I don't know how good our scheme is, but I imagine it's fine. Our problems stem from poor fundamentals and play calling ...

re: The Last Serise Alone Is A Fireable Offense. - Ash'sProstheticHand
[quote]I will say we did better in the 4th killing clock. We almost exclusively ran it and only passed when we needed a first down. All plays were snapped under 10 seconds remaining on the play clock. But I feel like this should be a given and not praised for getting it right.[/quote] Yea, runnin...

re: Kevin Sumlin = Kirk Ferentz - Ash'sProstheticHand
Oh come on I said he has a chance to field the best team in our history. And it's not overly critical to say that a team with an all-SEC post (Davis) and a front court player who's a top 5-10 draft pick (Williams) shouldn't miss the NIT. :lol:...

[quote]I hope Kennedy has the season you are projecting this year. It would be a welcome respite from the shitshow we're currently in.[/quote] It took some really poor coaching to miss the NIT last year with the front court we had, but this team is going to be fricking sick. We are adding an embar...

re: Per Passwaters at AggieYell, BOR and AD are on the same page - Ash'sProstheticHand
Even though you're trolling with your wing T bs, I see the spread criticism enough that I'm going to answer you seriously. The problems with our offense under Sumlin have been play calling and poor coaching. There's nothing fundamentally wrong with spread formations. Our spread sucked in 14&15 b...
