Re: SEC Football Discussion Thread
I enjoyed the game. How many hard hits were there last night? 150? Loved that aggressive style.
As a former HS coach, those defenses, particularly 'Bama's, were exactly what you can do when you have limited offensive talent. (It galled me to type that, knowing full well Richardson is the best RB in CFB. But the fact is, Bama has one receiver who can catch, run a route, and beat defenders, plus Richardson. Everything else is well below average, as to a BCS team.)
Defense wins championships.
The two best teams in college football were on that field last night. During March Madness, no one rails against a final game that pits Duke against North Carolina. No one would bat an eye. (Aside from Kentucky fans, perhaps.) Why is it different here?
