My sizzling hot take for last night's football game:

Hey, Notre Dame gave up only 30 points to Clemson. I mean, if we're going to talk about who deserves to be in the playoffs...

Ha, that's funny NoMich. I was thinking the same thing. I was among the many who believed that Clemson's semifinal dismantling of Notre Dame was conclusive evidence that the Golden Domers were a fraud and had no business being there. I'm willing to admit that I might have been a bit hasty in that conclusion. Maybe Clemson is just that damn good?

They are, indeed, that damn good. Dabo has the ability to get top rated kids in Tennessee, Georgia, *and* Alabama.

I'm not looking forward to another year of Clemson v Alabama, but it seems kinda unavoidable right now.

Alabama needs to land around 6 studs on the defensive side to be competitive with Clemson. They need 2 or 3 guys who can pressure the QB and a couple of CBs and a Safety who can come out on top of a play or 2.

Better coaching wouldn't hurt either .. that fake FG and a few of the 3rd and 4th down gamble play calls looked like half the team didn't know what play was being run.
