Breaking news...Saban retires.
That’s Urban’s MO
And Alabama had a returner back before the extra dlineman ran in. He's going to directional kick it to avoid the return, because you have your punter as a gunner? The whole reason a quick kick works is that you have no returner back. You guys are nuts. The whole point is any one of those outcomes indicates a pretty bold call.
Well, in a word - experience. The offense is coming out in a hurry up. Their offensive hits an intermediate play over the middle and then rushes to the line in a formation you've seen them run before but with personnel in different spots. You realize that it has created a terrible mismatch and the game can turn on this play. If you've got a time out, you can stop it and ruin that wrinkle. With no timeout you maybe watch that top WR lined up where you've seen them put the TE on film split your safeties and put them up by 4 with 39 seconds left for you with no timeouts; because you decided to go for the ruse to win the game rather than going the conventional route and holding on to your best means of stopping their hurry up if it they hit a couple of quick plays on you.
Good lord, just stop digging. It was just a good play but it wasn't a gamble. They could have taken a timeout. They could have simply taken the penalty and backed up 5 yards. They could have shifted position and punted. They could have quick kicked. You make it sound like if the formation didn't work they've just given some big advantage to Bama. They didn't draw the play up in the dirt while the shot clock was running, it was something they had dialed up and they executed it. Jesus tapdancing Christ......
No, they couldn't have shifted position. You have long snappers for a reason. It is a different skill and you aren't just going to have your center wing it. They could have quick kicked - to a returner with your punter at gunner? Let's go full retard. The call was to trick them, or use a timeout or take a yardage penalty and put them potentially closer to the tying field goal. And if you did that, with the season you've had as a coach and it backfires, you're probably out of a job. There's no digging - the above was a true story - I lived it with the play sheet in my hand. Wished I had the timeout to call because I saw what was about to happen. In my case it was lining up the guys up in a field goal formation that I knew was a bit outside my kids range and trying to slip the WR to wide side having him pretend to run off. It didn't fool them. I took the timeout to save the yardage to go for a more conventional call on 4th and 8 in a tie game. We didn't connect. They caught one over the middle and did exactly what I described above.
Ho Lee Phuck, I saw Harvey Updike there...at the 9 second mark of the video!
There's gonna be a lot of girls stranded in stalls all over Auburn today. BTW, I hope it rained last night.
Explaining Malzahn’s deviously simple trick that ruined Saban’s day
I'm in Madison, not a peep from anyone.
Man that punt fake thingamajig was the gutsiest damn thing I've ever seen. And I've lived through some crazy stuff.
You mean they aren't celebrating a 2 loss season and finishing 2rd in the division? won't like this.
@Zambo is correct. They were already shifting the two - Nix was headed to be the gunner while the punter went to the back. Nix started pointing out 12 men as he was running to gunner.
Yeah Bama with all those top recruits and lose 2 games. Also blown out in the NC game last year. Has Saban lost his touch?
LOL. Okay dude. So instead of a punter as a gunner, your QB who does tackling drills all the time.
The stings hurt worse when they are rare. The vistas look better on the climb than the tumble down. The he-coon walks just before dawn.
I'm willing to bet he's got as many reps or more doing quick kicks as the team has practiced this 'fuk w bama' lineup arrangement.
