Bama ran the ball 36 times and a lot of Mac Jones’ completions were screen passes to WR’s or swing passes to RB’s which are basically perimeter run plays. Very few vertical routes thrown by Bama tonight. Pretty conservative game plan by Bama. They slowly grinded out that win and when you can consistently execute you can put 50+ points on the board methodically moving the ball down the field without a whole lot of explosive plays.
Ohio State loves to throw the ball around a lot too and they got their asses kicked so it goes both ways. Style of play doesn’t matter as much as being physical and executing whatever is called. Bama is the bigger more physical team on both sides of the ball and they executed better than Ohio State even with their top two WR’s being injured. Jimmy is building UW in the same mold as Bama. He wants UW to be big and physical like that while still have WR’s who make explosive plays. I’m all for it. You should wait to see how it comes to together in year two and three before talking shit. Year one was already promising.
