PAC 12 symbol

By Fred Delkin

Best Duck team ever? Alabama coach Nick Saban must think so…his silly criticism of the spreading use of no-huddle, spread offenses, a Duck trademark, certifies that Saban feels threatened. He coaches a “huddle up and overpower ‘em” attack, the antithesis of Chip Kelly’s emphasis on speed. Halfway through this season,
