Kingsbury’s Message To SEC Coaches Worried About Pace Of Game: “Stop Recruiting These Beasts Up Front”

gfx - they said itAlabama coach Nick Saban has weighed in with his concerns over up-tempo offenses in college football.  So too has Arkansas coach Bret Bielema.  Now Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury is giving his thoughts and as you might expect, the former offensive coordinator at Texas A&M has a decidely different take.  

Saban and Bielema have voiced concerns over injuries because of the pace of play and the lack of ability to substitute players.  Kingsbury isn’t buying it.

 

“I would have to see some scientific or statistical information showing an increase in injuries, because to me right now it’s just talk. You want me to play slower, well, OK, you need to get smaller, less strong defensive linemen. To me, it’s asking to do that.

“Stop recruiting these beasts up front and we won’t run as many plays.”

 

Kingsbury suggested that SEC defensive numbers wouldn’t be as good if teams had to consistently face the up-tempo style prevalent in the Big 12.

 

“There are some really good players in the Big 12 on defenses, but yards per game is through the roof. That’s just the nature of the game. If Alabama or LSU or those guys faced these offenses all the time, each and every week, it would be different. That’s just a fact.”

 

Both Saban and Bielema employ slower, more deliberate offenses.  Alabama ranked 114th in the country last year in plays per game.  Bielema’s 2012 Wisconsin team ranked 99th.

Ironically, he's asking for statistical evidence to back up the claim for increased injuries but he's framing his purely speculative opinion of SEC defenses vs. B12 offenses as "just a fact".

well he has a point.  wasn't A&M's offense supposed to be demolished by SEC defenses?  how'd that work out?

@alamoaggie08Seemed to work out fine for LSU and Florida. Had A&M remained in the BIG12, they most likely would have been in in the NC game. Instead, A&M faced an SEC schedule, had two losses and finished third in their division.

When you have the Heisman trophy winner and most electric player in football, it tends to skew the data.  We'll have a better idea of A&M's scheme next year.
