Yeah, and? We weren't a contender any longer either. Believe you basically summed it all up.

Mugg said all your losses were to NC contenders and/or Heisman QBs

Not true, apparently

I'm not saying it will ever be easy to beat a Saban Alabama team, but at least there is somewhat of a blueprint now

I don't really understand what all the fuss is about.  HUNH fans say it's bull Posted Image to change the rule but it won't really affect the pace that you run.  You're bitching b/c you won't be able to handcuff the defense the way that you have.

May the bridges I burn light the way.

Saban is really reaching here. Everybody knows his "player safety" spiel is complete and utter BS.

Are AU and A&M jimmies a tad rustled? Yea. Why? Because y'alls jimmies were rustled first and your coach went crying to mama about how the fast kids on the block can run faster than him.

This is classic and only an Alabama fan could spin this the way some of you have. There's a reason 90% of non bama (and arkansas) fans agree that this proposed rule is laughable, unnecessary and a clear example of cowardice.

Give. Me. A. Break.

Its been proven that the rule had been proposed with saban having absokutely nothing to do with it......he was asked to appear to the committee and elaborate on what he said about the issue during the season

Its a friggin opinion girls, you know, kinda like yours?

And when you have leverage, by god, not only earn your keep but throw that weight around

Was it cowardly of them to change the rule in 2008 so the HUNH offenses could have all the cards stacked in their favor?

ok, im done with this one until its proven it increases injuries. im not on sabans or bielimas butt about it cause like haymaker said its just an opinion right now. I also remember saban incorporating it when he got 5 yards on first down several times. changing the rules should never be a knee jerk reaction and should be more carefully and more thought about than the targeting rule was.

Saban

July 18, 2013 - SEC Media Days
"I don't know that there will ever be any rule changes that affect the up‑tempo teams.
"There's only two questions that I've ever had. You've heard me talk about this before, I'm not going to speak on it now. I don't have the answer to these questions. Should we allow football to be a continuous game? Is that the way the game was designed to play?

"And the second part of it is, and I don't have the answer to this, is an increased number of plays that players play in the game, is there any safety issues in that? They play like 64 plays a game in the NFL. We play over 80 in college. The up‑tempo teams play even more than that. The cumulative effect of that is a player is playing 25, 30 more plays a game. Is there any safety issues in that?

"I don't know the answers. I think these are the questions that need to be asked to know whether there needs to be any rules that affect the tempo of the game."



Ole Miss was the leader in average plays per game this last season in the SEC. They averaged 78 plays a game.
Ark. and Kent. averaged the least in the SEC at 65 plays a game.
That would be a difference of only 13 plays a game.

2012 season A&M was the SEC  leader in offensive plays at 78 a game.

Paragraph two of his statement was not even close to being correct.

Frankly, I'd be happy with a rule that states that the officials must be in position and set for a couple of seconds before the ball is marked ready for play. That would address my main issue, that officials are missing procedure penalties because they're running to get into position when the ball is snapped.

Do you really need a rule change for that or just train the refs different?

Given the officials ' limited capacity for judgement, I'd rather it be a rule change.

I agree but I guess my real question was, is there an actual rule that gives criteria for setting the ball and resuming play?

"praire doggin'"gotta go
"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

-- Derrick Thomas
