No Jovon Robinson???

By on November 30th, 2015 in Member Post 4 Comments »

           Once again we had good production out of Jovon Robinson in the first half only to see him touch the ball twice in the second half. Which leads me to this question. WHO IS ACTUALLY CALLLING THE PLAYS AT AUBURN???


  1. Kirby Smart brought an extra guy up and loaded the box in the second half forcing Auburn to pass, which for the most part, they couldn’t do. Had JJ and the WR’s connected more, it would have opened up the run game again.

    Yeah… that’s what Malzahn said in his press conference. I am sure it is true. I would have done the same thing.

    Changes nothing really. I think Malzahn is OCD and talks himself into a corner that he can’t get out of. Lashley isn’t the guy that can stand up to him and help him out.

    Like someone said on here already in another thread… if we had a QB that was accurate and able to read defenses… we would have won the game. That and if our receivers actually caught the football.

    Pretty simple really.

    With Malzahn’s version of the spread… you need a run option quarterback who can execute the zone read. JJ was the anti-QB for this offense. Namely because he hates to get hit and runs very little.

    Our offensive line had a hard time opening run lanes. When bama stacked the box… just weren’t enough guys to make a hole. He had to throw it… and he couldn’t really do that either. Got to give it to him though… he didn’t throw a pick.

    Nick Saban didn’t get to be Nick Saban by letting teams beat him with the obvious. We were beating Bama at their own game in the 1st half….running it right at their front seven. If we had the ability or the will to attack them down the field with the passing game, we would have had a comfortable margin at halftime. Saban realized this and made Gus beat them with JJ and unfortunately JJ was not up to the task. Yes, Jovan should have seen the ball more but without the threat of the pass, I don’t think you would have seen the same kind of success.
