    Don't know why some football fans can't appreciate the systems approach in executing winning football as exhibited by a number of SEC teams, Alabama and coach Nick Saban in particular. to appreciate the effort both athletically and mentally to execute at such a high level takes experience and learning on the fans part. The National Championship Game last night was made possible by SEC exceptionalism, a good defense can make an offense look bad, both teams had good defenses, this makes the kicking game very crucial. Whenever two teams with such great defenses meet, it is a work of art in execution that is rare and intriguing, or at least it should be to all knowledgeable football fans.
