I prefer the happy-medium approach where both teams have a pulse on both sides of the ball, but that's just me.
After the first game, I wrote that both offenses -- like the old Nebraska offenses under Tom Osborne -- were completely predicated on being physically superior to the other team's defense. Which they are, in almost all cases. But when they ran up against a team that could stand toe-to-toe, they had no answers, which is why the first game was so ugly. Last night was mostly more of the same, but given time to prepare, Alabama found enough answers to move the ball. LSU still had nothing.
