    Early action is all on Clemson...I opened at 7 and I am not moving...hate getting middled on these type of games so my action may be a little high on the dog but I have 52-22 on Clemson so far. Over/Under is pretty split with 26 Overs 18 Unders and $$$ dead even.
    As an Alabama fan personally I am scared of Clemson. I am really worried. Will keep you posted.

    I agree. Our Offense is missing sync......it will take a tremendous effort by our Defense which can be done. But our coaches have got to call a great game on Offense and special teams, to be honest I love the Clemson domination rolling into the game. It will be another one for the ages. Great coaching staffs, great players. Best two teams. Advantage Clemson this year. I've wondered several times this year what our team would have been like with Blake coming in on some passing situations. He would have gotten some decent playing time by now. He really disrespected the team by leaving mid year. And I hope the NCAA slams whatever loophole he found shut.

    Agree completely we have to keep the ball away from Watson by usin Bo a lot and running straight down their throats. Clemson defense is their weakness. If Alabama goes back to Saban ball they will win. My fear is Lane will cost them.

    I love how dominate Clemson looks going into this game as well. I believe our defense still has a bad taste in their mouth from a year ago with their performance in the title game. Saban is a perfectionist and demands it especially from the defense. That's had to of eaten at him since that game. I also am kind of glad our offense looked so out of any on national tv. I would hate to be an offensive player this week at practice for Bama. I believe we run the hell out of the ball move the pocket for Hurts to throw and if it's not there tuck and run. I could see Hurts having a huge game rushing on pass plays that are covered well. We got the recipe to beat Clemson last year. The difference to me in this years team and last years. This years defense has the speed to stop Watson more so than last year. Also Watson hasn't been the running QB he was last year. He's stayed in the pocket and looks to pass first a lot more than last year. In an effort to make his draft stock go up. But when he runs I believe there will be a LB spying him the entire game and in his face a good bit. Sorry for that long rant but that's my opinion. Honestly Clemson being praised by the media and is kinda being pushed to the side for a really sloppy performance plays in our favor. We played one of our worst games this season in the semifinal of the playoff and Still won by 3 possessions. The Clemson praise about how amazing they're offense looks reminds me of 2014 Oregon after they destroyed FSU in the first round. The media praised them for a week and lost by 20 in the title game. Not saying it'll be that easy for us but I love how easily we've been discarded by the media already. As Ryan Anderson said post game "we're tired of being disrespected" Roll Tide

    If this badass game doesn't go down to a field goal with 5 seconds on the clock, I want my money back.

    Offense looked so terrible. Kiffin got fancy with the play calling for whatever the fuck reason I don't know. But this is his finale and i wouldn't be surprised if Saban will have or already has had a nice come to Jesus meeting with Kiffin behind closed doors. Anytime we've looked off and the play calling was too fancy one week. The next week we got back to the things that worked I look for the same here. Hurts and Scarborough both over 100 yards rushing.

    Love it, hope they keep the Clemson cool aid flowing. Would love to see a 6.5. Next time Kiffin "misses" the bus he should straight for FAU.

    Don't discount Alabama's Defense it is the 1st time since '92 I could say I've seen a Defense deeper and more talented. That is saying a lot. Clemson is NOT all that on Defense despite the shutout.

    Here's another stat. Alabama is outside of the Top 50 in only two categories, Passing Offense and Kickoff Returns. Clemson is outside the Top 50 in Rushing Offense, Turnovers, Punting, Punt Returns, Kickoff Returns, Penalties in two categories, Red Zone Offense, and Time of Possession.

    I remember so many tournament finals in various sports where the dog came with a great performance in the semis and was considered as a dark horse but is simply annihilated by the better opponent... Personally, Watson is probably the one I am looking forward to seeing in the NFL but Clemson is NOT facing Ohio State in the final and we all know Alabama is a different beast altogether... No matter how much I like Deshaun & Co., The Crimson Tide rolls this Sunday....

    Clemson is scary as shit, gonna take a monumental effort for Bama to win this game. Our passing game is atrocious against decent defenses. I'm not confident even with the dominant d we have that we can stop all the weapons Clemson have and Watson able to take off when pressured. I don't wear homer blinders....Clemson impresses the shit outta me

    Kiffin Out. Sarkisian in effective immediately. This is good for Bama's gameplan.

    Agree I am surprised they let Kiffin call the Washington game... hindsight is 20-20 but I sure did not like the play calls, even middle of 1st half I was wondering WTF the calls were. They could run the ball but instead Hurt stood there for 4-5 seconds then went sideways back and forth then either got hammered or threw a weak pass off balance.
    RUN the ball to establish the pass! (they shoulda)

    Bama's Defense is the best in the land, but a mobile QB who can throw can hurt them...Bama's offense is average at best, with a true freshman QB that has not been in a close game in the 4th qtr and doesn't look comfortable when forced to throw...instant classic, clemson wins late

    He's been around all season as an Offensive Analyst. I'm sure he's given quite a bit of advice to Hurts and Company. No biggie here IMO. It could be highly beneficial. Guess we will see...
