BUCKZILLA, AMEN. All these Monday morning second guessers. Do you think Bama and Oregon played perfect games? There is no such thing as a perfect game. Only the striving to be perfect. Anybody can pick a game apart from the safety of their couch. But the ones who have walked on the frontlines, the coaches, have to do it under fire. Make a decision, roll the dice, and hope for the best. Urban saw the Bama defense, not 8 but all 11 players within 3 yards of the line of scrimmage, daring the Buckeyes to pass. Now I can sit on my couch and second guess the pass choice yada yada yada.
I could go on and question going for it on fourth so much. Or why would you run a double reverse in the red zone and have a receiver, who had never thrown a pass, throw it on the run to a tightly covered receiver (it fooled no one). That pass could have been a pick six just as easily. And then no one would be talking about two minute clock management. But it wasn't a pick six, ergo a great call, not really, it was great execution!
Listen, we all like to coach from the couch. I know I certainly do. But as Gruden would say "C'mon man!" Be real.
