    If Champ had followed Saban's thought process we go for one instead of two and we kick the field goal on fourth. What in the world was the reason for going for two?

    I think it was a "read" play based on how the defense responded to the Gators lining-up like they did and it was just blown -- either from a bad read or inadequate coaching (or maybe just bad luck).

    I think the 2-pt conversion play was one of those options he left to the players if they saw something about the defense that made them think they could get it. Someone made a bad decision.

    Me personally, I wouldn't even leave that kind of stuff up to the players.

    The way it struck me was that the read was correct but they didn't hike the ball soon enough so the D adjusted.

    jesus we lost the game, calling for a hs qb to start, firing of coaches and sayin they're zook 2.0 is a little bit over the top.

    get a grip people

    That was a weird call, but I also thought the changes he made on DEF after the 1st qtr was real good.

    It was a stupid play because teams like Oregon have a luxury of doing it cause they're gonna put up many more points. We very likely could have needed that one point with our offense.

    Driskel would probably play better in Oregon's system to be fair.

    Those two plays were mega dumb, even if they had worked.

    Oh, I don't know unlike this guy, at least Zook beat UGA tow out of three times (and his loss was only by 7 points). What is this current coach's record against UGA?
