Which one coached better in that game? Who outcoached whom?
No one is saying Chryst was Nick Saban. Kelly choosing to execute a poor gameplan means he was "outcoached" by the guy on the other sideline who chose to execute an average or slightly above average gameplan.
You say "just some crappy decisions by Kelly" as if it was just a thing that happened and has no bearing on who was the better coach in the game.
Kelly's coaching decisions had a bearing on the outcome. As did Rees playing like garbage. As did not picking up a fumble. As did Tuitt getting ejected.
Kelly choosing to throw the ball too much in the 2nd half doesn't make me sit back and say - Man, that Chryst really out-coached Kelly.
Pitt and that is my definition of outcoaching the other.
Kelly doesn't play to his team strengths, he plays to the Super Nintendo 64 Tecmo Bowl game he used to play in the fraternity...and if he didn't get the Raiders with Bo Jackson, his face turned a nasty purple.
If so, why in the hell wouldn't you say he outcoached him? No one's claiming he was a chess grandmaster, flustering Kelly at every turn. Just that Chryst had his team prepared with a good gameplan and Kelly did not. That's simple enough. Chryst got a B, or whatever, and Kelly got a D. If it were a math test, who outperformed whom?
