Threw for more yards than McCarren yet tons of interceptions. He encountered a great defense. He will mature from this.
Running Backs: F
They couldn’t do a thing, they were nonexistent. What was their strength all year long became their weakness in the BCS game.
Wide Receivers: B+
The shining spot of a luster game. DaVaris Daniels had a great game and will be a great tandem with Golson next year. TJ Jones played great as well. Solid building blocks for 2013.
Tight Ends: B
The most consistent thing other than the sun rising is Tyler Eifert being double teamed and beating his defenders. He had a hell of a game.
Offensive Line: D
‘Bama is physical and quick. Only so much you can do in the film room and on the field to stop them.
Defensive Line: D
Can’t play 2/3 of the game and expect to be fresh especially against Alabama. They got tired and lost their quick steps.
What was the defense bread and butter became their poisoned pills. They missed tackle after tackle. Sad way for this group to go out.
Defensive Backs: C
No turnovers but played leaps and bounds better than the rest of the defense.
Special Teams: C+
I should just call this Punting and returning kickoffs grade.
Coach Kelly’s luck ran out. Nick Saban is GOOD and smart too.
