Malzahn hits F4, Moseley and Carr deliver

In the late 80s, my grandfather had this ancient Compaq portable computer and every time we came down to Auburn we’d rush back to his office and pop a disk into one of the two floppy drives and C: prompt this simple football game that showed a grid as the field and that had, like, five plays you could run. F1-“Run.” F2-“Pass.” F3-“QB Sneak.” F4-“Long Bomb.” F5-“Punt.” Whether you won or loss was, for the most part, pure chance. The success / failure rate of the plays was totally random. There was no real strategy beyond listening to your nine-year-old intuition.

Which is why I won a lot.

Because I swear, if you pushed F4 hard enough and at just the right time and with just the right amount of desire, it would happen—boom, 50 yards, the ultimate offensive itch of backyard coordinators: scratched.

Having Moseley connect with Carr like that, after all these curious few weeks of something called “offensive struggles,” well it was just really nice… really nice to see F4 work—that’s exactly they way it looked in my mind—even if we did have to F5 just three plays later.
