Alabama vs Clemson

Recommended Posts

I'll take Bama. I am not a fan of them but I cant see anyone beating them. They don't even need much Offense, they score with their Defense. Clemson lost to them last season as well, I don't see it changing.

I thought Alabama would win it before the playoffs started, so I will stick with them.  However, their offense has to play a lot better than it did against Washington for Alabama to win, IMO.

Washington did have a pretty good defense, but I agree. I doubt they'll play like that 2 games in a row.

Just read that Kiffin will not be coaching in the National championship game.  I wonder if that very conservative game plan he had against Washington has anything to do with this?

I'm taking Clemson to win by a TD. I think Clemson's OL can sustain against Alabama's defensive front and allow Watson to take advantage of Alabama's secondary. I also believe Bama is going to struggle to score. Clemson has the secondary to match up with Bama's wide receivers and allow their defensive front to focus on the running game and Jalen. Clemson 24-17.

Man,  I hate Alabama

Clemson was talking all of this smack on how they were going to get revenge and they absolutely have stunk up the joint. Bama dominates the game without even having a QB that can pass haha. Only team I have ever seen like them are the Nebraska teams of 94 and 95 but even Tommie Frazier could pass.

How did Clemson shutout Ohio State...??

Ohio St has a QB just as bad but they don't have the O.Line and run game Bama has. Bama can run it like the old Nebraska teams.

These two teams are much better than OSU.  They lost a bunch of players before this season.    They really over achieved getting as far as they did

I was hoping for a much better game tonight.  Still hoping Clemson turns it around.

I wouldn't say overrated.  Just not as good as the last couple of years.   They will be back.   Lots of under classmen played for them this year

I wonder how many students wear Alabama stuff on campus or is it mandatory to wear that stuff everywhere in Alabama?!!

OSU played about as badly offensively as they possibly could with a good portion of that being on the play-caller's whom got released or resigned after the Clemson game. OSU overachieved on a lot this season, but as Jvan pointed out, they were one of the youngest teams in CFB. With the class that's coming in and the guys that are returning, they'll be a top team again next year.

Game over. It was over after Clemson went down 14-0. 

 

You don't beat Alabama when you constantly mess around and turn the ball over. 

 

 

Hang your head in shame Clemson. Just like that Giants...One whole week of running their mouths and all this big talk only to screw it all up.

Clemson isn't out of it.  Down by ten, plenty of game left.

68 Yard TD by Bama, game over.

Theres still plenty of time left, but Clemson has to get a TD here. Field goals aren't going to beat Alabama.

We will see. You have more faith in them than me. Bama never blows leads of 10 or more in the 4th Qtr. Clemson is getting ready to score but they need 7 I agree.

    •   Not at all I just hope they do a much better job with the defense , the Polian Dungy era was exciting & a decade of excellence of course we would love to see a return to our winning ways .
    • With the suspension being in hind sight I agree.
    • He's about the only good player they have so they need to keep him.   And I think this offseason is going to highlight just how bare our cupboard has been at #2 WR since Reggie got hurt.  Before we had players who were bad but had potential.  We're not even going to have the "potential" part this spring.     Unless we use a 2nd or 3rd rounder ....again.
    •   I do live in Indy & yes since Peyton Manning was drafted many jumped on the Bandwagon as the Colts did better & better most  IMO did jump ship & took up the Broncos as there team & many were not fans of Luck because he replaced the old dog I always felt good riddance my allegiance is too the team & the City I work in .     It all started for me in 84 we had many tough seasons & heartbreak in Pittsburgh in 95 just 1 catch away from our first SB I'm sure the bandwagoneers missed that one , I'm an Indianapolis Colts fan while I was a huge 18 fan only as a Colt not as a Bronco  . Another poster pointed out that maybe the injury news for 12 was unclear not because someone is fudging the truth but maybe to keep other teams guessing as to the Colts 3 pick ?     Medical issues are beyond Jim Irsay's expertise he can only relate what he was told & sometimes things are just worse than previously thought I can't blame that on the owner . I honestly believe Jim Irsay is the biggest Colts Homer in Indy & sometimes his hopes & wishs may shade the truth a lil as a business man I don't believe for a second he would purposely mislead the fans it would IMO make him like Robert Irsay  someone old Colts fans will all tell you was & is despised .   Jim Irsay is not his father he is no more perfect than any of us , but he is IMO just a die hard fan just like me & he has my respect & support .      
    • I agree with that.  Semantics maybe.  I'd put Brissett's ability to run for a first down similar to Case Keenum's.  He can do it better than the statuesque QBs, but I wouldn't put it in a written list of his qualities.  Keeping the requisite comparison to other black QBs, he's more Jameis Winston/Doug Williams/Warren Moon than Russell Wilson when it comes to making plays with his feet.
