National Championship Game Chat


We'll be chatting about Alabama-Clemson here all night.

Feel free to post your predictions, comments and questions here.

I've got Clemson 37, Alabama 31.

Who you got?
Alabama 27, Clemson 14.
28-24 bama
Alabama 31 Clemson 17

I just think Alabama's defense is too good, but we'll see if Watson and his WRs can make the plays to win it.
Maybe they should be intimidated, but after being so close last year, I feel like Clemson will actually believe they are going to win. I think that will help them.
Bama 31-24

They're defense is in beast mode.

The offense is the question mark. Can they start fast?

Can they get any semblance of a passing game going?

Venables will load the box to stop the run, so passing success for Bama is going to be critical.
31-21 Unfortunately Bama....
I think Clemson has a real shot because their defense has really played well lately. I'm still a bit concerned about their O, but this is where DeShaun seems to really shine in these big games.

IF the Clemson D can slow down their run game a bit, they have a real shot.

Clemson 31 Bama 24
Bama starts slow but ends up wining by 10ish

28-17

Rooting for Clemson
You guys see this article?

Pretty candid

"Clemson's right tackle is atrocious RT"

"Hurts can't throw"

"Any Clemson gameplan will revolve around forcing freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts to beat the Tigers with his arm."


That's what I said above. Bama has to pass somewhat effectively to win this game.
Love the National Anthem!!!
Good start for the Tigers.
Daron Payne, just a 5 star DT that no one talks about, with the sack.

These D-lines are both loaded.
Anyone know where refs are from
Ruben Foster is a piece of garbage.
I counted 3 late hits on Bama so far
Smart for Clemson to go for this on 4th down.

Have to maximize every drive against a D like this.
Ref from Big 12
Shocked that Clemson didn't go QB run there. Horrendous attempt at a block by Leggett as well. Fine if they go for it, but need a better call than that on 4th and less than a yard
I HATE toss sweep, especially in short yardage
I love the "sec graduate" patches. It's special that they call this out specifically.

Would you have preferred a slow developing run play?
What a block on the edge by OJ Howard. Big time play. TD doesn't happen without that block
That was not the way I wanted this game to start.

If Clemson can't stop the run, they're done.

Mike
Um where is the flag for holding? 88 just tackled the Clemson DB!
Bo Scarborough looks like Jaylon Smith on steroids running the ball. Why didn't we think of that?

Well they pretty much did the same thing against Pitt...twice and didn't execute.
Herby called it a great block but I say it was a great tackle...Holy crap how do you not call that at the point of attack

You're just not used to seeing that from a tight end the last few years. That's what they call a pancake. Hands inside, great block. Hopefully see a few of those from Brock Wright

You mean tackle.....hands were outside and should have been called
Little chippy!

Just re-watched it. It was legal
Both these teams look like men out there. Hope Balis can work some magic.
