Alamaba WR targets

This sucks

There's not much analysis anyone could glean from a beat down of that proportion.  I wonder if Nutt will trumpet the worst home loss in 60 years the way he did back to back Cotton bowls for the first time in 50  years.

There was a definite shift in our targets though.   Despite Moncrief and Logan getting the starts, they only got 4 targets between them (Logan - 3, Moncrief - 1) and 3 of those didn't happen until late in the 3rd quarter when the game was well out of hand.  Moncrief's one target was a jump ball in the end zone after a Brassell catch set up 1st and goal.

The obviously beneficiary of this was Nick Brassell.  He had 6 targets and cashed them in for 4 catches for 101 yards and got us inside the 2 yard line twice.  Incredible game by Brassell, especially considering that he played 25 snaps on defense.  My only criticism of him (hardly a criticism because he's the only guy that had a nice game) is that I think he could be even more of a weapon once he learns how to get interference calls when he has his man beat and out of position.  Outside of Brassell's catches, we had 40 yards of offense - let that sink in.  That's less than Alabama's 3rd leading rusher.  Hell, our whole team only out rushed their 4th leading rusher by 6 yards.

We also tried to get Mosley involved.  The first pass of the game was a great call for a TE delay to Mosley and he got two other targets throughout the game, but couldn't haul in another pass.  Jeff Scott got 4 targets, but could only get 3 yards out of 3 catches.  Neat had two targets and Melvin Harris had 1.

Here are the raw numbers for the season.  Brassell is getting his catch rate up and really becoming a weapon.  Still no incompletion thrown towards Ferbia Allen, but he hasn't been thrown a ball since Vanderbilt.

Just a note about our offense in general - 6 of our 11 drives had negative yards.  Only 2 out of 11 went for more than 14 yards.
