Stop me if you’ve heard this story before, Clemson and Alabama are playing in the College Football Playoff. I don’t care how many times I’ve seen this I get just as hyped every time! Saban vs Dabo, Tide vs Tigers! can you feel it!? Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide are dealing with a lot of injuries at the moment and hopefully will be a lot closer to full strength by the time kickoff rolls around. The Tigers, on the other hand, are healthy and ready to battle again!
Clemson absolutely manhandled Maimi in the ACC Championship game, and if anyone was doubting how good this year’s Tigers were they got their answer very quickly. Clemson is led by QB Kelly Bryant who is cut from the same mold as former Clemson QB and now stud in the NFL Deshaun Watson. Byrant can beat you with his arm and his legs and it makes defenders go crazy trying to keep him under wraps. Clemson finished the year as the #1 team in the nation and have one of the top defensive units once again. They will have their handful with all the playmakers on Alabama’s offense.
The Crimson Tide have a lot of talent but not a lot of healthy starters. Their entire linebacking core has been dealing with injuries all season, and if you know anything about a Nick Saban team the Linebackers are the most important. This version of the tide is different, They have an offense that can score on anyone. With Jalen Hurts who is also an extremely talented dual threat QB, all those running backs including Damian Harris who averaged almost 9 yards a carry, and arguably the top WR in the country in Calvin Ridley. If the Tide want to win this game they’re going to have to do it with their offense and not their defense for once. They need to control the ball, keep Clemson’s offense off the field, and capitalize on scoring chances aka touchdowns instead of field goals.
