Beck + Warinner = Fickle + Withers

MSU exposed both combinations as being faulty.

Ash pretty much always runs his base defense.  That is what he does.  The biggest issue was the offsides penalties that kept on coming at crucial moments that made 3rd and 4th and longs into 3rd and 4th and shorts, which were then converted.  When they ran the ball rarely were they getting stopped for a loss or for no gain.  It was almost always for 3 or so yards.

I agree, someone commented (yesterday?) saying similar things.  Herman changed the offense in the final 3 games to better suit Cardale's skill set.  The reality is that they both can make plays that the other can't.  It is time that they simplified the game plan and got built up the confidence of Cardale and the passing game.

Not going to happen.  If Withers was still our DC then yes.  Chris Ash and Fickell are all about keeping it simple and letting the players play.  Ash has run his base defense against every team we have played with the lone exception of Navy, due to their option attack.  Every where he has been he has run his base defense.  

Saying this, I do think that on 3rd down situations we could see some really exotic blitz packages out of a 3-3-5 or something like that.  That would not surprise me, but to say that we will come out in a 3-4, not going to happen.

I was talking with a long time bama fan and asked him about why they didn't use Henry more vs us and Oklahoma. He told me it is bc Henry is soft (and those were his exact words) he said he tends to avoid contact and goes out of bounds too easily and that he frequently gets tired and has to come out of the game.

I listened to him a lot in high school and one summer when I wasnt working. Say what you will about his takes, the one thing I enjoyed was that he would routinely admit that his show was about increasing listeners bc radio is an entertainment business.

Those were Allen Edmonds?  No wonder they looked so nice.  I'd heard that Josh was very fashionable, but the monk strap on the shoes confirmed it for me.
