Prayers for MommaCoach.

The notes are great but I think we all share the same priorities.  Family first.

Thsnk you.  We brought her home yesterday after going in last Tuesday.

lstephens did you get my response to your question?
I did not but don't worry about it.  Take care of mom.

Basically, I think I said that it looks like they were getting ready to run the running back leading for the qb which put him in the shotgun.   They could have been running a qb read also.  I also think they probably take about 98% of their snaps from the gun.

Coach, thanks for all you do for us during football season. Everyone enjoys your game notes. With that said, your priority should be family first. I will keep your mom in my prayers.

Thank you

There will probably be no game notes this week as I am in Alabama because they put my mom in the hospital.

Thanks Coach. I couldn't agree more about everything you mentioned. I was telling my grandson that I couldn't understand the lack of a screen package. That would take some heat off of our O line, but to my recollection, not one screen pass has been thrown this season.

They tried to set one up one up last night to the TE, but it was covered and had to throw it away.  I would rather see it to the running back off of play action or just drop back.

Thank's for the write-up coach.  Yes, OL is a mess and after three games not getting any better.  (You could say after 3-years...)  What can the coaches do that they haven't already done?  Or is the problem the coaches as much as the players?

Best comment I've read after USF game is that Bama "has lost it's soul." Gonna be tough to get better from here.

I don't know about the coaching.  He came from Kentucky and seemed to do a good job there.  Maybe we are sacrificing. speed and agility for size.  I know their feet don't seem to be good enough for the smaller quicker DL/LB.  I know if I was Saban the OL coaches would have been in my office this morning discussing what needs to be done.

                                                    USF vs Bama

An ugly win is better than a pretty loss.  It was not a pretty game last night, but Bama came away with the victory.  Most of the ugliness, in my opinion was on the offensive side of the ball.  IF the OL doesnít improve drastically, I could see this team with multiple losses this season.

OFFFENSE:  The offense was hindered by an ineffective OL.  I know people are complaining about the play calling, but I donít know how good or bad the play calling is mainly because of the OL play.  By the way, the USF defense came into the game ranked 110th, I believe.  Bama also had great starting field position 4 times last night as they started on the 50 twice, the USF 49, and the USF 25 and only came away with a field goal.  Also, again with the inability to stretch the field in the passing game, it allows safeties to be more involved in the running game. Does Bama have a screen package that could maybe help slow down the pass rush?

Yards:  310 total, 107passing (87 came on 2 plays), and 203 rushing. Most of those rushing yards came in the 2nd half.

Negative plays:   3 tackles for losses and 5 sacks.

3 and outs:  Bama had 2 three and outs, 1 each half.

Plays for 10+ yards:  3 passing and 11 running.

Scoring:  Got into the red zone 3 times last night and came away with 1 field goal and 2 touchdowns.   

QB:  It is hard to evaluate the QB when they are running for their life. I will say Buchner was 5 for 14 and I am not sure one of his passes was on the money or hit the receiver in stride.  Simpson did better, he was 5 for 9 and actually threw a couple of good balls. I know that Buchner was hurt by what looked like a safety blitz at least twice, but I could be wrong and one of the times it was Simpson.

RB: The running backs ran hard, but again McClellan lack of blocking resulted in a sack.  Williams had a good night and had some big and tough runs.

REC: This is hard to evaluate also, as there were only 10 completions.  What is hard to see from the tv angles is the separation or lack thereof when running routes. I did see the Simpson scramble and keep looking down field, what I didnít see is a scramble drill from the receivers to come back or move to help.

OL:  They did nothing to improve my attitude about this being a major concern for the success of this team.  Back-to-back games with 5 sacks and as I stated, USF defense was ranked 110th in the nation.  I my stats are correct, I know the QB was pressured at least 5 times to go along with the 5 sacks.  The centerís snaps are inconsistent.  Too hard, too soft on the ground and every once in a while, just right.  Isnít this the same center coaches were praising last year?  Pretty sure, that 74, 71, and 65 each gave up sacks last night.  Footwork must improve as well as their setup getting ready to pass block.  I saw OL downfield but looking back.  Your job is to find someone to block until you hear the whistle, donít look back.   Saw this more than once last night.  Bama got lucky on the last touchdown as, I think it was the right tackle, should have been called for holding on the play.  They seem to catch blocks rather than deliver them.

DEF:  The defense, overall, played a decent game. Actually, looking at the stats, they gave up more rushing yards than I realized. That being said, and I grade harshly, I have Bama for at least 10 missed tackles, some of them from behind the LOS.

NEG:  5 tackles for losses, 5 sacks, forced 1 fumble and the recovery led to a field goal.

3-OUTS:  2

Plays 10+ yards:  2 passing plays and 6 running plays, at least 2 of those runs were because of loss of contain on passing plays as well as losing their rushing lane assignment.

Scoring:  they kicked one field goal from outside the red zone resulting from a loss fumble on the punt.

DL:  I just donít see the consistency of getting of blocks.  I donít think they use their hands very well and allow the OL to get into their body.  They have a problem every game with passing lane integrity as well as losing contain of the QB.

LB:  They played well, but I thought Lawson had a very good game.

DB:  They only gave up 87 yards passing.  The longest reception was 15 yards.  Wait for it, there were no PI calls.  McKinstry had and interception that was disallowed because of offsetting penalties.

Special Teams:  The biggest mistake or problem here was the fumble on the punt return.  I will say, he was trying to save yardage for the offense as the ball was rolling towards the Bama goal line. Twice Bama didnít have the proper personnel on the field for the punt.

Penalties:  Penalties cost Bama another touchdown with a holding call on the kickoff return.  Offside, by the D give USF a 4th and 1 instead of a 4th and 6.  False start puts Bama in a 3rd and 10 instead of 3rd and 5.  Personal foul, ended up being an offsetting penalty and Bama lost an interception.  Delay of game, because Bama didnít have the proper personnel on the field for the punt.  Holding negated a 16-yard touchdown run, however they overcame this one and still scored the TD.  Breakdown of penalties, 2 on special teams, 2 on the offense and 2 on the defense.

Finally, people are not going to like this, but if Bama is to be a contender, they have to clean up the OL.  We can blame the QB, but the main reason for the lack of consistency is the OL.

That Bama will start ND transfer, Tyler Buchner vs USF.

Wow! I figured if Saban put somebody else in, it would be Simpson.

I really thought Simpson would have won the spot outright in the spring.  I have a feeling he will be headed to the portal if he doesn't play this year.

So, basically, we are poorly coached and have zero motivation to improve as individual players and as a team. Gotcha!

Who said that?
Sorry, didn't mean to imply that you said it.  But for the record, I have heard that...

no problem, I just thought I missed something where someone said it.
