It took the disaster on defense in 2008 to convince Les that he needed a legit defensive coordinator and went out and got the best one out there in Chavis.
Same thing has now happened on offense. We now have a legit offensive coordinator. It's unfortunate that it's come this late as it probably cost us back to back national championships.
If this combination can stick around for the next 5 years or so, we should see multiple national championships. And there is no reason why one of those can't happen this season.
A&M's defense is just not very good. Manziel is a ticking time bomb that I still believe will be removed from the team at some point during the season with more indiscretions to come.
Bama's offense looked dreadful, so we will see what happens there.
The Georgia game will tell us everything we need to know. A win there and I think we are on our way.
@islstl I was going to ask if anyone saw the bama game and get a feel for how they looked.
As for the rest, I couldn't agree more. The only thing that crept into my head as I was watching the game was, crap, how long can we hang onto Cam? I hope he is done with all that head coaching nonsense and just settles in and enjoy's the ride in Baton Rouge for a while. The thing is, you know the courters will be a comin.
Bama's O-line was a complete disaster.
The offense actually scored only 14 points. The rest was special teams and defense scoring 3 TDs. Great teams won't let them score those 21 points that easily.
Watch the play on Blue's fumble.
I think that play breaks for a huge gain. It was like the parting of the red sea up the middle. The free safety came up to help and there was no longer anyone deeper than 2 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Damn.
shane I watched the Bama game. McCarron showed that given pressure he can't throw worth a damn (but we knew that from last year). Their O-line may have gotten spooked by the refs calling a penalty they've never heard of, something called Holding. It's foreign there in Bama.
But no, in all seriousness, with decent corners for VT, and a little bit of pressure Bama couldn't do shit. NOW, take this with a grain of salt, but they didn't use Yeldon all that much. It was like Saban was trying to find his number 2 since he kept switching the other two backs. Yeldon makes a HUGE difference, much like Hill does.
Watch them at A&M and the next two weeks and get a better feel for it. I wouldn't count them out, but their offense will definitely not be as good as last years.
