    My high school lo those many years ago ran an offense they called the Notre Dame Box, but my father always said it was really just a Winged-T. AU's offense reminds me of that a great deal. I would argue that you almost need to abandon any keys or reads and simply hold your spot on the DL, regardless of what the OL does. AU is particularly good at disguising their plays by doing unorthodox things with their OL.

    Combine this with very little time to adjust and you get outflanked a lot if you are trying to do too much on D.

    My real concern about what is going on is really with the officials. If the stated purpose of an HUNH offense is to gas a defense full of 18-23 year old men in prime physical condition so that they start to ignore their fundamentals, get out of position, and make bad decisions, what in the world does it do to the officials? And if it cuts down on defensive adjustment time does it not also cut down on the time the officials have to do their checks for illegal formations, eligible receivers, false starts, and such? And I pity the poor umpire, who many times barely gets away from the LOS before the ball is snapped, and really has not a prayer of getting into position to call anything but the most blatant of holding penalties - assuming of course that there were holding penalties to call. There may be even more misdirection here than meets the eye.

    I hope that Alabama decides to include a no-huddle package (not necessarily hurry-up) in their offense next year designed to hamper defensive substitutions. I would love to see what our OL and RBs could do against a DL that was good and gassed about midway through the 3rd quarter.

And Auburn's version requires good one-on-one tackling skills by the defense. Getting penetration can be effective but not at the expense of losing gap responsibility. UGA did a very credible job against Auburn in the 2nd half of their game. If FSU can be that good for the entire game, they can win big over Auburn. But if FSU attempts to beat the offensive linemen by penetrating around the defenders and leaving gaps, or by over-pursuit then Auburn can run it up on FSU.

    Having a month to prepare is a big advantage to be effective against the Auburn winged-T versus Missouri or other SEC schools since they don't face another offense like Auburn's. LSU was fortunate to face Auburn early before they were effective in the offense. Auburn has been better each week in this offense & they have the personnel to run it effectively. Just remember that the foundation of the winged-T is to use miss-direction to gain advantage over stronger, faster defenders, so the Auburn offense can neutralize a superior FSU defense if FSU is not disciplined in their approach - something a month of seeing the winged-T in practice should provide. It should be a good game.

    The NFL Channel annouced that Saban is signing a 7 million a year contract extension with Bama. The question is; will Nick send UT a Thank You note?

    if thats the case then Jimmy Sexton played both sides like a concert pianist...


    did some checking around on the NFL Channel report...and that 7 million dollar extension was the one that Sexton had on his desk since it was reported last week...but apparently was never signed...Even Rich Eisen from the same NFL Channel just tweeted that the Saban to Texas story is gaining legs....

    all I know is there is a TON of misinformation out there from all the parties plus from many that have no interest at all..Its quite entertaining..bordering on maniacal

    It's freaking STUPID!

    Most folks are ready to pull their freakin HAIR OUT b/c we're all so sick of hearing about NICK SABAN TO TEXAS!

    He's NOT GOING! get over it. He'll Retire @ Bama.

    Yet even if he did leave, WHO CARES!?!?

    I'm ready to puke with all this incredible ridiculous drama over Brown and Saban.

    There's my take. I don't give a crap where they go or for how much.
    I just want to watch football. Whether or not Saban or Brown are head coaches are not,
    makes no difference to me.

    Most people that I know don't care either way. It's a business. I wouldn't be shocked if he left. I can see why.

    You don't really want it to be true. In any event, how is the duck season going?
