    Where is the leadership?
    To me, the lack of leadership on this team didn't really show itself until last night. When you are beating folks the way Bama did all year with superior talent, it's just not as important. I think Tua tries but he really gets down on himself at times and appears to withdraw. On defense, it's just not there at all. This was the most undisciplined defense I've seen take the field under Saban. I'm not going to bash a player here but we all know where the problems lie. Hopefully we can find it next year because we'll surely have the talent to get us back in this game again.

This was the worst beat down Bama has had in a long, long time. I honestly can't remember one off the top of my head since it's been about 2 decades. Heck, Shula never lost a game by 28.

    Some of the guys planning on leaving for the NFL as juniors looked like guys with no idea how to play.

    One bright spot on defense last night, the play of Josh Jobe. I really liked what I saw from him and I think he's gonna be a good one.

    I hope some of the Juniors decide to come back for their Senior year. BAMA losing so many players to NFL/injuries each year, and coaching turnover, has become an issue. Whoever Saban wants to hire, the University should pay them whatever it takes to keep them on staff at least 3-4 years. That is a major advantage for teams like Clemson.

    This team had glaring issues that were glossed over by TUA and the offense. When they stopped scoring points, it was over. Funny how teams are constructed. Can’t help but believe that the 2015, 2016 Bama teams would of beaten this Clemson team. Clemson couldn’t stop the run, those teams would of ran the ball and played sound defense. This team had weaknesses on all three levels of the defense. The dline had no depth, which was also a problem everywhere this year. The LB and DB development didn’t come along like in years past. I don’t know, they all played well at times this year. That’s what makes this game so befuddling. Even against OU they played pretty well. Stupid penalties kept 2 of their drives going, other wise the most prolific offense in football would of been held to 20 points. It was as if the secondary watched no film last week, rested on their laurels. Third and long, Lawrence threw for like 240 of his 3something yards. Obvious passing downs. Didn’t make sense. His completion percentage wasn’t that great, on third and long he killed it. I do think Christian Miler would of been huge in this game. And on offense, down by the goal line. Why didnt we go to a three wide look and run the ball like we have all year . Why pack in the middle and run against their strength , the dline. I guess that will be some of the changes, offensive goal line. My post started rambling

    I think Herbie said Clemson lost 3 coaches in The last 5 years. Huge!

    No changes is necessary on staff and players.

    Golding and Lupoi will spend rest of spring and summer fixing what was broken. I suspect Saban will bring extra coach in to help on defense side. I could tell that our defensive players did not take the preparation seriously. Mack did lot of talking on twitter this year that he couldn't back up on the field. Thompson, McKinney, Smith, Sustain looked lost last night. WE could not get off the field on 3rd downs.... The plays were there on both sides of the ball, we just did not execute well. I am okay with the loss, because this was something our players needed to learn from.
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    Just need to buckle down and be more disciplined...... and stay off Twitter
