“It's not a joke to me. It’s something that I really feel strongly about,” Saban said. “If you want to play hurry-up offense, play it. I’ll play you, I don’t care. But it doesn’t mean that I cannot try to protect my players offensively and defensively. I have just as many offensive players as I have defensive players. That's the facts.”
Malzahn’s primary offense will be play-acton with two backs “that will run our offense at a two-minute pace the entire game. Our goal is to play faster than anybody in college football.”
But the Auburn coach still hasn’t settled on a quarterback to run that hurry-up offense.
“We don’t know who our quarterback is,” Malzahn said. “We have four guys. Going to give them an equal shot, figure out who gives us the best chance of winning.”
