Kirby Smart, in discussing up-tempo offense, sounds like he’s channeling his inner Miss Manners.
“You create sloppy play when you go (up) tempo. That’s no offense to Ole Miss and that’s no offense to Alabama. I see it with us. Somebody goes tempo, it gets really sloppy. At times, offensively, we’ve gone tempo, and it gets really sloppy. I think you just have to be aware that that can happen.” [Emphasis added.]
A quote like that really makes you understand why they wouldn’t let Fromm run more up-tempo stuff last year, even though he was clearly more comfortable doing so. Such is life with a neat freak.
