I know the thing w/ Gus Malzahn's offense is that is plays fast and has a quick tempo. We all know that but when they needed it most, the Tigers put out some impressive drives that killed the clock.
I am watching the Iron Bowl right now and that last drive Auburn took nearly 4 minutes off the clock and Bama got the ball back at their end with under a two minutes left. They couldn't do anything.
Remember the drive against Oregon where they had it at their 1 or 2 yard line and got it to midfield to flip field position. A lot time came off.
There were a few others through the season (one against Kentucky) that was similar.
The offense did a great job this year w/ their tempo of when to get things moving quickly and when to slow things down.
That is a versatile offense Auburn has.
CGM is a genius. I have seen very few coaches in my lifetime with such a feel for the game. He knows when to slow it down to help the D and he knows when to turn it up to not help the opponent's D!

Dyin' ain't much of a living, boy - you know who
That's what makes this offense work, you can adjust to personnel and game situations. I'm willing to bet we lead the SEC in total offense in '11.
