    Fact is we didn't score in the red zone. Fact is we are averaging about 20 points this third year with WM offense and we've played 2 not so great defenses. In WM third year we have a awesome D, it was awesome his second year, but this O remains predominatly a run offense. An offense that's fairly predictable.

    We have quality recruits on offense, 4 and 5 star players. So what gives?

    The best part of this thread is we all know that the thread started would be talking about an uptempo spread offense if A & M was up in this game

    Do you really want the answer or do you want to vent? Because when people give you the answer you just say something like the above

    Truthfully still venting. It happens when we lose to a rival. RAZ, I know we disagree, simply put, just my take, I would like to see more balance in our offense. I would like to be less predictable. I just don't think we have the personnel to jam it down teams throats when we get to the red zone.

    I know we could have won had we just kicked fgs, but we will face much better teams and I'm not confident our current style of O will win the games of need vs uga, usce and sow.

    I don't mean to be contrary, it's jmo. And I do respect differing views.

    I dont disagree with anything you just said. Also we didnt try to jam it down Miami's throat in the redzone. We dont have the personnel anybody wants including the coaching staff. That is why they are out recruiting hard

    Did you see what A&M was running? They were in zero coverage with nine guys in the box at times. They were taking away both the run game and really anything between the tackle box over the middle of the field. Bama was struggling offensively at times in the first quarter.

    Back to my self-imposed exile until after the next win.

    This. I looked to me like Teas A&M's strategy was to force Bama to throw the ball and push the tempo. Apparently becuase they liked their chances of winning a shootout more than a ball control / field position game. And they were almost right.

    And give McCarron credit, he checked to a lot of those throws and then made them stick.

    As soon as we get the right players for our system our offense will explode! Too bad those players have already committed or are playing for other schools because nothing attracts them to our Offense. Theres probably a couple of "Sammy Watkinses" who we may miss out on. How do we fix that without paying these kids?

    fla's offense is nothing like alabama---they throw deep on early downs, use the naked boot with a throw to the tight end, throw corner routes & slants and their running game is much quicker to the hole

    Yep we suck and bandwagon fans should find another team to follow that meets THEIR expectations,,,,gez. Ive been a fan saince 1962 and Im fine with our staff and what Boom is doing.

    Bama...in case some of you folks dont know...doesnt have near the defense that the 2011 team did and the 2012 version was even just slightly better than the 2013 edition. Ive been preaching this for some time. Bama, LSU, A&M. UGA are all not typical SEC defenses...UGA is 14th in the SEC in defense as example.

    I am (have been) predicting USC or UF in Atlanta and the Bama will go down.
