Because once we were down 14 points, we likely had to abandon any semblance of an effective offensive plan. Whatever it was, it didn't work.
But that's not really my point. Bama could have beaten LSU by more points too in the NCG in 2011.
I understood this thread to be about Alabama's advantages in college football. Having the best coach in the game is one of those advantages, IMHO.
And not only is that guy the best coach but he knows how to implement processes within his program to increase his advantage over the competition. That's all I was trying to point out, which is to say nothing about Notre Dame or its gameplan.
