Personally, I want them to keep the playbook as closed as it was last week.
And, from what I hear, that's what they plan on doing...only changes we'll see are a few more players seeing some action than we saw last week on more than one unit.
When do we open it up then, buddy?
We can't play conservative for ever. Wouldn't it be nice to throw a monkey wrench in what Tulane thinks we will do and do something totally different?
I know it's a long season and the conferences games are coming up, but it wouldn't hurt to reveal something new every week.
IMO, it makes game planning against us that much tougher.
When? When we need to open it up more. There's no reason to delve deeper in what we have when we don't need to do so.
You mention we can't play conservative for ever. But, if you look at Saban's offenses over the years they can easily be described as conservative. Sure, we'll have more emphasis on "explosive plays" in future games when we need
them but we should need to implement those until week 5.
Here's where you have lost me.
You mention you think we should "reveal something new every week" and by doing that it "makes game planning that much harder."
If they have never seen it before, they don't know about it, therefore they can't plan for it.
Why throw a wrench into the Tulane game, or the Western Kentucky game, when we don't need to do so? Fact is, we may not need to against Arkansas.
To take that even a step further, if no one can stop us running between the tackles why stop? Why do more?
I'm reminded of a game when Wake played Ole Miss in 2006. Wake ran close to 60 offensive plays in the game, maybe more, but only threw the ball 6 times. When asked why, Grobe said, "they couldn't stop the run so why do anything else?"
