The other side: What Bama said about USC, Hilinski

The other side: What Bama said about USC, Hilinski

Sept. 15, 2019

The numbers aren’t typical from what the Alabama defense is used to displaying, but according to coach Nick Saban and a couple of the Crimson Tide defenders, it had more to do with the game plan South Carolina employed during the 47-23 loss Saturday afternoon than anything else. The Gamecocks ran 86 offensive plays and finished with 459 yards. (VIEW ARTICLE)

We limited Bama to 76 yards on 25 carries on the ground, but gave up 444 yards in the air.  That and lack of red zone execution cost us the game.

Pop Warner kids know what a hold is, but apparently we don't.  That hold on the fake kick was just damned stupid.

Nick Muse looked like a guy we pulled out of the bleachers.  That and the lack of a challenge by Muschamp.

Running bleachers for your mistakes on the next Monday for mistakes after they are debriefed in the film room usually narrows players' focus, but all we do is practice on Sundays in the little PC world Carolina lives in now.

Saban and Dabo get in their players' faces during the game when they screw up, but we don't do that.  They win, Muschamp doesn't.

It was a team loss, but not the end of the world, though.

I though the refs cost us 2 or 3 scores. On the fake field goal, the holding call was iffy at best. Their were a lot more obvious holding calls that were not made.  On the long touchdown pass to Harris, Juedy made a nice block, but it was before the pass was thrown; hence it should have been offensive interference. On the near td by Dowdle the play should have been reviewed. Instead we made a "hurry up" play that wasted a down and failed to score.

These are my opinions, I could be rather biased in my views..  But, Bama still would have won the game.

Pretty much agree. The game would have been much closer had the refs called it right. But we still would have lost.

The CBS Announcers had some "heart burn" with a couple of calls that went against USC on Saturday.  I think the refs did kill our chance of keeping the game within a score or two with the "iffy calls", but Bama would steal beat us this year 10 out of 10 times.  The refs had pretty much a "blind eye" towards Bama players for the vast majority of game and the hit on Trevian Feaster was a classic example as he was a "defenseless player" and that's pretty much what the new rule was written about - protecting defenseless players.

Nick Saban is one of the most level headed coaches I have ever seen across any sport. I don't dislike any of what he said, maybe they didn't get the yards on the ground because they didn't run it enough. But, would have, should have, could have, you still only had 77 yards on the ground against the Gamecocks. Maybe that Gamecock Defense against the run ain't so bad Nick... just sayin
