For the first time in 19 games, Alabama suffered a loss on the road to Texas A&M in a historic game for all the wrong reasons for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide.
Throughout the 41-38 upset, many Alabama fans displayed their frustration online with much of it pointed at Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien.
O’Brien’s play-calling was widely criticized especially during a red-zone possession where Alabama threw three straight passes inside the Aggies’ 10-yard line and ended up settling for a field goal try.
Below are a few of the top reactions from the game:
Bill O’Brien making huge mistakes on offense? That never happens… #GoTexans

Bill O’Brien needs his bags packed tonight, honestly, leave him on the airstrip…absolute bum play caller, no wonder he failed as a NFL HC https://t.co/g171t5Uw13

Bill needs his play calling duties taken away. Offense has looked out of sync most of the year.

Bill O’Brien got handed the keys to a Lambo and is turning it into a Datsun.

This game is on Bill O’brien, WR drops, and no first half awareness

Y’all wonder why Bill O’Brien got fired from the NFL.

Get rid of Bill O'Brien tonight. No excuse to not run the ball once starting on the 3 yard line. pic.twitter.com/X9D7zfPWNl
