                                               MTSU vs Bama

Congrats to the Bama players and coaches for the win.  I donít think the question was who was going to win, but how much would the margin of victory be.   Also, I think fans were wanting to see the changes the new coaches may have brought to the table.

OFFFENSE:  The offense really had little problem with the MTSU defense.  I do think there are still some questions because of the quality of the competition.
Yards:  431 total, 226 passing and 205 rushing. 

Negative plays:   2 tackles for losses, 2 sack (both had running backs involved and no turnovers

3 and outs:  Bama had one 3 and out.

Plays for 10+ yards:  5 passing and 7 running

Scoring:  4 for 4 inside the red zone, 4 from outside the red zone

QB:  Milroe did a good job for the pressure that was on him.  He was 13 for 18 for 194 yards.  Early on, 11 of the passes were of 10 yards of less.  I am still worried about his mechanics as it looked on a couple of the deep balls, the feet were not where they needed to be.  I think that is why they were underthrown. That being said he did make a few good deep throws. He did throw one ball into coverage to Brooks, fortunately it was incomplete and not picked off.  He is very capable of making plays with his legs.  The other question I have is can he progress to the 2nd or 3rd receiver if the first option is covered?  Many times, in this game, it looks like the 1st read was open.   There really wasnít a lot of opportunities for the backups to get a clear picture on.  They both did some good things.  I really thought Simpson would have won the starting job, but I guess I was wrong.

RB: The running backs ran well and are pretty interchangeable, it seems.  As I stated above RBís were involved in the sacks.

Rec:  This seems to be an area where there is plenty of depth.  Seven different recei.er had catches.  This is without Brooks who it looks like he may have been held out of the first half for disciplinary reasons.

OL:  I think this could be a good group.  They have the size, and it looks like athletic ability.  There were a few snaps that were low which can lead to problems in a more competitive game.  There did seem to be a communication problem on one running play that led to a tackle for loss.

Def: The defense looked to play pretty well especially for a couple of reasons.  First, they cut down the penalties and I think they tackled better.  The question is can they continue this when playing better competition.

Negative plays:  I have Bama for 4 tackles for losses, 3 sacks, 1 fumble recovery, and an interception.
3 and outs:  Bama had 6 three and outs, one that was because of the fumble recovery.

Scoring:  MTSU got into the red zone and had one missed field goal and a touchdown.

10+ plays:  4 passing plays and 2 running plays.  One of the running plays was when they ran a QB draw and the DL got out of their rushing lane.
They had a pass play for 21 yards where the RB was lost in coverage and a running play for 30 yards that was on the QB draw from an empty set.

DL:  They played well, especially Young.  He is becoming a force partly because of all the attention Anderson is getting.  Young was credited for being in on 11 tackles and 2 of those were sacks.  I think he also batted a pass down.  Early on, it didnít seem that they were getting off blocks and this is when they seem to be playing hesitant.  Maybe OM showed some new looks.  Bama looks to have a lot of speed again from their edge rushers.

LB:  I thought they played well, and they look athletic. 

DB: Again, I thought this group played well.  But I also take in account the competition.  I thought the corners were less handsy and stayed in phase better.  They did get tested on many deep balls as MTSU seemed to be getting the ball out quickly.

Special teams: Special teams played well.  Too me one of the biggest pluses was the yard McKinstry saved the offense by fielding the bouncing punts.

Penalties: I canít remember the last time Bama had so few penalties.  They had 3 but one was disallowed because of offsetting penalties.  So, officially they had 2, one on the defense and one on special teams.

Finally, Bama seems to have the good foundation for being a very good team.  Too me the DL seems to be slimmer and maybe quicker.  The offense seem to be back to using motion more than last year.

Feel free to comment.

Great job hscoach. My one question was I saw Dalcourt standing up a lot when it seemed the others were still blocking. All 3 QB's especially Jalen impressed me but again it is the competition. We find out next Saturday. RTR!

Thanks Coach. It's always great to see your analysis. It pretty much confirms what I saw as well. Really good foundation to become a good, maybe great team. Milroe's athleticism can carry the team a long way, especially if he keeps improving as a passer. The discipline on D was a very pleasant surprise. Already seeing a big difference between Steele and Golding.

I watched some of the Texas game and wasn't greatly impressed. Having said that, they played a pretty vanilla game and didn't show a lot. But they will come in hungry next Saturday and we need to be ready for them.

You got this right. Quin Ewers thinks he owes us one. I forgot to ask hscvoach if he knew about injuries. RTR!

Glad to see you back HSC. A good game summary as usual. I expected Milroe to start but I expected Simpson first on the bench. The coaches must think Milroe is the guy, or we would have seen more of the backups.

I was disappointed with the OL. Protection was not good and open running lanes were hard to find. Texas will be much better up front than MTSU. MTSU was bringing 6 rushers often daring Milroe to beat them with his arm.

I am glad football season is back!

Really glad to see you back coach!  Great job!

Not for a minute suggesting that Middle is a juggernaut but they are usually a pretty good team.  I had a lot of questions going into the season but feel better after this game.  IF we get by Texas this team just might be special!

ROLL TIDE!!!

My BIL, who use to coach, said he felt the RBs were making the run blocking look look worse than it was.  He wasn't happy with their instinct and cutting to hit holes.

I sure hope this is the case. This can be fixed but they better get it right this Saturday. RTR!
