    Clemson would have beaten us regardless.

    they were simply better all-around..coaching, playing, mentally...everything.

    people can say the rivalry is 2-2 in the playoffs, but with the way they destroyed us Monday night I'd say they are clearly the top dog after 4 games.

    right now Clemson has every right to claim they are the best team in the nation...with the best coaching staff.

    hard to say that, but it's true.

    doesn't mean we can't reclaim the throne, but our window of opportunity seems to be much smaller than theirs considering the relative age of our head coaches.

    Clemson got #1 seeds advantages in the CFP no question plus got to play Pitt or somebody in the ACCCG.

    Let's see we played with a less than 100% or out Lewis, Allen, Brown, Diggs, Buggs, William's, Miller, and Tua. 6 starters on defense out or less than 100%. 2 starters in offense out or less than 100% with one critical to our red zone running game.

    Too much deficiency when meeting a team that can almost you blow for not to mention all the other breakdowns in coaching and special teams.

    IIRC, since Alabama was the #1 seed we requested the Miami over Dallas because Dallas would have been similar to a home game for OU. In hindsight I think we should've taken the dome and let OU have more fans there to preserve our conditioning for the final..

    I agree, IMO they should reset them:

    Dallas/Phoenix
    ATL/NOLA
    Miami/Pasadena


    That way when the games are in Miami and Pasadena, all 4 have to detail with the outside elements.

    So the fact you played outside 9 days earlier is a reason you lost?
