Alabama has fallen prey to the Peyton Manning syndrome.  You have an uber-talented QB and stray from the type of offense the rest of the team is built for, and it does come with some expense.  Your defense is no longer lights out, because - among other reasons - it doesn't have to be.  

The good news for Saban is that he can easily pull a 98 Vols and resort back to his style of team as soon as Tua leaves after this season, grind out 31 point blowouts instead of 55 point blowouts, and get back to that big bully, nasty Bama we've come to know.




As for LSU and this idea - I think they've had a black hole at QB and have just been waiting for one.  Also, and more to-the-point, they have a next-level OC now, and he's running circles against college DCs.

The scheme and the passing game coordinator are nice, but I think too much is getting made of that and not enough attention is paid to the kids running it.  We're definitely not the only team to run a pro-style spread.  Joe Brady learned much of what we're running from Moorhead.  I'm not sure how the narrative became Brady was bringing the Saints' offense to LSU.  I mean, yeah, he spent a year or two with the Saints, but let's be real, LSU is not running the Saints offense, other than borrowing a few formations I recognize and a couple plays here and there that aren't all that particular.  

LSU looks good so far because Burrow is a really good QB and the WRs are catching everything, unlike last year.  I'm not dogging the scheme at all, but if we try to run the same thing next year with Myles Brennan in the shotgun, the new narrative will be "SEC defenses have figured out LSU."

I see you feigning praise for your enemies.  I'm on to you.

Shouldn't Tennessee get two spots for "with Maurer" and "without?"  Before he left the game, they looked....dare I say it....competent?

He's from Ocala, FL.  Why is it that every good player on teams across the country are from FL?

btw, Bama without Tua is still the 2nd-most talented roster in college football.

Interesting that the top teams seem to have elite QBs.  Or not.
