This is like saying a dentist can’t figure out how to treat a cavity. This is like saying a doctor doesn’t know whether a patient has a cold or a fever. This is like saying a judge doesn’t know what the actual law of his jurisdiction is. It’s shocking and wild, but it’s true: Alabama coach Nick Saban, regarded by many as the greatest college football head coach of all time and undeniably a brilliant architect of the modern Alabama football dynasty, couldn’t figure out how to solve a defense coached by Clay Helton’s former failed defensive coordinator at USC, Todd Orlando.
It’s a plain fact. Saban and Alabama offensive coordinator Tommy Rees went up against South Florida and its Orlando-led defense this past Saturday. Alabama won the game, but only because the Crimson Tide allowed only three points to the Bulls’ offense. The Alabama offense played terribly. Todd Orlando had a great day in Tampa, as USF bottled up Bama for 60 minutes.
USA TODAY Sports did not have good news for Alabama in its re-ranking of every FBS team.
We have facts, notes, and reactions from the public after a terrible (and hard to watch) but truly remarkable football game in which Clay Helton’s former assistant made Nick Saban look bad:
Let’s start with this point about Todd Orlando, Clay Helton’s former (and failed) defensive coordinator at USC: It’s not as though Orlando was tearing it up and thriving heading into this game against Alabama. South Florida allowed 41 points to Western Kentucky in Week 1, then 24 points to Florida A&M in Week 2.
Florida A&M scored more against South Florida and Todd Orlando than Alabama did! Can you believe it? That’s how bad things are for Nick Saban right now.
But there’s more to this. So much more….
