    To answer the question about what we lose:

    O: our center and AA LT Jonah, possibly Irv Smith at TE.

    D: Buggs and Miller, with probably one of Davis and Jennings leaving early (though they shouldn't).

    We bring back a few starters that got hurt throughout the season such as Diggs at CB (was our one true shutdown guy before injury), and Terrell Lewis (probably would have been our best pass rusher this year). Based on his tweet, looks like Thompson is likely coming back.

    So something like 16-17 returning starters on O/D, with Diggs and Lewis considered.

    Bama Ball-busting done, got it out last night. That said, I know how good Clemson’s DL is, but I was expecting much more from Bama’s OL, namely Jonah Williams. Damn, son.

    Bama was running for 7 yards a pop and dominating TOP. I thought our defense would wear down in the 2nd half but Trevor is Trevor and our defense locked in. Was definitely K’Von Wallace’s best game.

    Game changed at the end of the 1st quarter with the false start on the 1. Your DL was getting tired, we were gashing you on the ground, and had a chance to go up a TD with 1st and goal from the 1. I think we had 10 min TOP in the 1st quarter. Kicking a FG there changed the entire game, then the next kickoff goes out of bounds, PI, and yall's first play the next drive is from the 50. Then it snowballed.

    With the way the rest of the game went, I think yall probably would have won with how bad you torched our D, but it would have at least been a ballgame instead of a blowout.

    Defense gave up 9.5 pts per game and 0 second half points for the playoff.

    My memory is not good, but I do remember Dabo being a laughingstock when he got hired and people saying how deep he was over his head, etc.

    Dabo is just the absolute best. The next Saban, but not a huge cunt.

    Yes the broad consensus, especially in the fan base, was that it was a lazy bad hire.

    Basically the groups that were convinced he was the best guy was the AD and everyone within the program, so much so they took a huge risk in promoting him from WR straight to HC.

    Dabo playing the long game by rotating so many players this season paid off. Pretty big having guys fresh and healthy for the playoff.

    Last night notwithstanding, one of the biggest complaints about Saban is he plays our starters super late into games in blowouts.

    We'll be beating UL Lafayette 49-0 in the 4th and the 1st team D is on the field.

    He's certainly a cheesedick, but he's unquestionably a really, really good human being. I was always a detractor, and still enjoy the occasional laugh at his expense, but what he did for Nolan Turner cemented my favorable opinion of him. Guys that good deserve good things.

    I think one reason bama’s coaching looked so bad is because Clemson was the first team they faced that didn’t just allow them to do whatever they wanted.

    It was pretty well discussed Tua was a “one read” QB. Clemson more or less baited him in to making the throws he was making all season long on both picks.

    Offensively, it was just a matter of our OL keeping the pressure off and our WR and RB making plays.

    Saban resorted to trickery in both championship games when Clemson had the lead. Clemson was ready for it this time when the fake fg was called.
