After thinking about that game for a couple of weeks I drew this conclusion.
What plagued Alabama that day was the same thing that caught Kansas State and Oregon.
It wasn't about winning each and every play. It was about what was on the scoreboard at the end of the fourth quarter.
I'm sure it's easy to look at the rankings and think, "all we have to do is win out and we're in." The problem lies is forgetting you have to win the battle in front of you and forget about the war.

I agree with jd that some of our passes seemed pulled out of an unrelated offensive scheme and unrelated identity, and as he put it 'unnecessary'.
We all know you can't JUST run the ball, but which is your identity, having a qb shootout or giving the other team the demoralizing job of stopping a brutal....brutal running game?
I can tell you which offense UGA will like to see of ours Saturday...the passing one.
Run baby run, run the ball, run the clock, run that scheme, run that screen, run that blitz package over and over, run all the way to Miami, then run slap over some golden domes, baby!!

Having had conversations with jd for years now I certainly don't see him as a buzz kill. I've seen him put on Crimson colored glasses and I've seen him put them in the other room.

It was said in jest. The post was still a buzz kill, though!
