I don't who will win or if we want to talk about it, but I figured the opportunity should be here.

Then Bama gets speed matched up against that Safety and takes them deep to tie it 7-7.

5 minutes into the game and it is crazy. If Clemson makes Bama look foolish, I won't feel so bad about the loss.

Shootout brewing. Lawrence splits the middle with a deep ball and then Clemson scores on outside zone to make it 14-7 tigers

Bama runs the ball with authority to set up a TD. Note: MISSED PAT 14-13 Clemson. It has looked easier for Bama as expected but Clemson has the big play ability to make this a close game.

Hilarious that Bama can't kick a field goal from the 5 because their kicker might miss.

Hey look, something that we are better than Bama at!!!

Judging by the expected ratings of the game, I'm not alone in not giving a crap about who wins.

Clemson scores on Bama on 6 plays as a long screen pass against man-to-man coverage sets up a Tigers score. 21-16 Clemson

Saban feeling compelled to go for 4th and short at the -35 lacking faith in his defense. Tua throws an arm punt for his second int and its returned to midfield.

No one is close to these two programs and Itís not good for the sport. The depth they have is stupid, Clemson would run the table in the ACC with their second string.

The sport is becoming to regional, and the only two teams I see with a shot next season are OSU and UGA.

The two best teams at cheating are playing one another. The only other time a team competes it's when Auburn or OSU decide to spend a couple 100k buying players.

Yeah, itís pretty scary to think this Clemson QB is a true freshman.

Kid makes ALL the right decisions. Itís unreal.

No doubt we played better on defense. Difference seems to be big play speed regardless of size.

I agree and with the playoff every year it's even more likely to be the same 2-4 teams. Expand the playoff and ot will make it even less likely for other teams to win

IT APPEARS...Our problem was not a defensive failure...our defense played as well or better then bamas defense is against this Clemson offense.....without the wierd injury to love we clearly were doing ok on defense ..


OUR SHORTFALL was offense.....dexter is a good enough running back so the real failings were OFFENSIVE LINE AND QB which were NOT good enough...and a lack of breakaway speed at WR.....


These teams have good defenses but not good enough to handle each other....we needed MORE offensive punch to stay with either of these teams....QB ...OL and outside speed all falling way short of this level of play.


aloha
