I just discovered that the Druid City brewery in Tuscaloosa is famous for their chalk drawings and they all have to do with Bama.  Some are pretty good but this one caught my attention as it proves even Bama fans think Finebaum is Saban's bitch:

A good defense lets you do that.  Once they get a lead Venables does his thing and they chalk up another W.

Clemson fans like to bash KB's ability to throw the ball but look at these stats in the First half of games (I put it on Hale's tweet so you may have seen it already)

KB's first year as starter
271 183 67.5 1952 10 3 138.01
Tajh Boyd's First Year as Starter
271 157 57.9 1778 14 5 126.40
Add in that KB had 469 yards and another 7 TDs to Tajh's 147 and 2, KB had 2421 total yards and 17 TDs to Tajh's 1925 and 16 TDs. Everyone wants to compare him to DW4 but that is unfair.

Clemson jumped on teams early and then coasted. KB only threw for 895 yards in the 2nd half because he didnt need to throw much

Time for my annual rant about defense.   Why do so many schools ignore it.  Clemson, as mentioned above, are champions now because of their defense.  Bama has remained consistently on top with mediocre qbs but amazing defenses.  UGA had a great rushing game for sure last season but that defense took them to the top game.  To me it just seems so obvious that to be a major player you need a top defense but schools in the Pac 12 and Big 12 just seem to miss that point.

defense is more about talent instead of x's and o's.  There is no spread or air raid to help a less talented team field a lethal defense.  Sure, coaching matters, but it can only do so much.

Tennessee for example doesn't have the talent right now,  Pruitt will scheme and coach as much as possible, but the Vols won't be able to shut many teams down like Bama does.

For sure.  My hope is Pruitt is able over the next few years to get the players he needs to make his defense work.

Jimmys and Joes make the Xs and Os a lot easier

Still have to have a scheme and recruit players to execute it. Wish I could find the old Gary Patterson article where he talks about each position on his defense has a check list he uses in recruiting. He knows exactly the body type, athleticism, speed etc he needs to maximize his defense. It was an interesting article

It's really 4 teams at the top, a lot of teams hovering at .500, and a few teams at the bottom.  

Also, UT and Vandy have the same record.  That's insane.

Bad times to be a Tennessee fan.   I did talk last night for most of the night with my friend who is the CFO of the athletic department.  The take home I got was Pruitt is no nonsense and pushing the kids hard this summer.   He does not care if they quit he just wants the kids who are willing to put in the time.  A good start I think.  We may not have the most talent but we should be scrappy and well conditioned.

I didn't intend to be a dick for pointing that out.  It was more of a WTF?  Everyone in that athletic department should be fired.  It takes effort for a school like Tennessee to have the same record as a school like Vandy.

Also he is a solid coach so he will get as much as possible out of the players on the defensive side.
