Maybe he should've thought about that when no one on the Oklahoma team could stop their RB Henry and then he inexplicably stopped using him until it was too late.

If Auburn did not pull the upset on Bama I think they would have beaten FSU for the title. Playing FSU for the title and playing OU in a meaningless game for Bama are two different worlds when it comes to motivation, energy, and focus. I think they were a better team than Auburn all around. Auburn didn't have the defense to truly hold FSU whereas I think Bama could have.

If Bama would have stayed with the run, they would have beat Oklahoma.

Did he hang one on his own office door? How about hand the ball the to Henry more next year. There is something different you might want to start doing.

Bama wasn't confused about what they were playing for versus OU. They just got blasted like every other time Bama has played an OU led Bob Stoops team.

No team in the country would have beat Oklahoma that night. They were the best football team, in that game, that I have watched all season long.

Alabama quite possibly would have if they would've continued running Henry.

If you watched the game the reason Bama lost was clear. Cyrus Kuandijo needed help in pass protection against Striker and never got it and instead of sticking with the run when Henry was looking like Herschel out there, they tried to force McCarron to have a "swan song" game by having him drop back and throw the ball way too much when didn't have time to throw. Saban and those boys got flat out-coached.

if the implication of the poster is that the team was doing the same thing to prepare that they have always done (which it seems to be saying) and that doing that nets you the same results then shouldn't they have won the national championship for the 3rd straight time by that line of reasoning? i mean really the probably got more away from what got them on top which is being hungry. they have talent no question and will win most games on that alone but to beat elite teams you need to be hungry too. they got complacent plain and simple. easy to do when you win as much as they do.

I say BS to that. I say it was mostly a coaching let down. What did SABAN do differently to prepare for those games? He's the one that failed to make adjustments. They dropped back and tried to pass the ball WAY more than I ever seen them do. They did not establish the run, they DID not play the kind of football Alabama is known for playing. And it being McCarron's last game imo has a lot to do with that. They tried to have AJ do way too much.

This is how Saban coaches. He lifts you up when you win a title, then tears you down with humility if you lose games you know you should have won. I don't know if it is the proper way to coach a team after back to back losses, but he has proven in the past he can turn things around very quickly. As much as I cannot stand Nick Saban, he is one hell of a coach.

Also, on another note, that entire team looked like they didn't care in that bowl game. Maybe when they aren't playing for a title, they don't care. That is after all how Nick Saban recruits, and his message he uses to recruits is, "Come to Alabama, where you will win a National Title every year."
