    The road to #18 continues, and I can't wait to see how Saban adjusts.

    One thing that really jumped out to me was the statement that Dabo has lost only three assistants during this 4-5 year run while we are a coaching merry-go-round right now. That kind of difference in continuity is stark and very notable. It may shed some light on to who we target for candidates and who is easier to coach for. I'd love to find a Mickey Andrews, Brent Venebles and to a lesser extent John Chavis who are content with a career of being the best DC they can be. We've increasingly become a stepping stone program with coaches, and we should look inside and see why that is the case. Of course, the success brings the suitors, but apparently Dabo can hang on a little better than us.

    Yep; it really looked like Bama was outcoached. But sum of it was Bama could move the ball but not make clutch play to punch it in. Bama could stop Clemson, but not the clutch 3rd down stop. Clemson made the most important plays, and Bama's O did get a little desperate;, But if they played again this year, I would bet on Bama. Just one of those nights.

    Remeber in 08 we lost to UF. In 09 everything was to beat them and we did. We will meet Clemson again and will be ready for revenge!

    Hats off to Dabo and Clemson. They deserved to win. I question our play selection and player selection. I love Damien Harris but I would've liked to see more of Josh Jacobs and Najee Harris, especially in the redzone. But, bottom line, we didn't get any pressure on Lawrence and they got after Tua most of the night. I'm really surprised how the were able to shut down our passing game.

    OTOH, we'll be back in the playoffs next year. Maybe we'll face Clemson again. But I wouldn't want to play us next year. Our offense will be amazing and our defense will be better.

    RTR!

    The only really disheartening thing about this to me is that our defense pretty obviously needs some re-working but there doesn't seem to be much out there that should really make us think a turnaround is incoming. LB is probably most concerning: I'd really like to think we have some sort of fledgling Reuben Foster waiting in the wings at LB, but it doesn't look like we do; not at all convinced by the guys coaching them, but they'll surely be back; etc. At least the young talent in the secondary looks pretty promising - maybe next year we can avoid having guys blow out their knees in pregame warmups!

We struggled in short yardage offense all season which is why we went to the Jacobs wildcat so much from around November onward. These things killed us tonight. Players gotta get better and make plays. Not much gameplanning can do about inability to cover guys in pass coverage and inability to get a hat on a hat in short yardage.
    They confused our OL about as badly as they confused ND and it appeared to me that we learned nothing from watching it...

    So, what do you guys think we will see in the off season as far as changes?

    They should bounce back though, this sort of things can light a fire under a team (last year's loss sure seemed to do that for Clemson).
    The same could be said of Clemson. You win some, you lose some. And some times you get your tail whipped.

    I wonít say Clemson wanted it more, because I think we played hard for 3.5 quarters. I just think they played better.

    Once the pick six was thrown, it just looked off from there. Havenít been this disappointed in a loss since the early 2000ís.

    The question is will the players shake it off and work their butts off to stay at a elite level or fold and live off what ifís?

    Been a fun season but we watched it all slip away tonight. Itís been real fellas, see yíall next year.

    One last note: we canít seem to beat Clemson unless itís indoors...strange, ainít it?


    Roll Tide Roll....18 on the way

    If he has even the tiniest itch to become a head coach we will find out this offseason. He just earned himself some pretty good offers.

    We had our chances, but Clemson outplayed us. Little things are big, like penalties and mental mistakes.
