    Me thinks the Clemson writer exaggerates using words like "tirade" and "diatribe."

    Corey Miller is entitled to his opinion. IMO, the better team that night won. I am not about making excuses and finger pointing after a loss. CPB paraphrased, win with class, lose with class, CNS paraphrased, if you are not prepared to play you will probably lose. I'm through with the NC game.

    What he hinted at but did not say is that his son could have helped and Saban chose not to play him. Not sure how I feel about that.

    It's okay for Corey Miller to support and believe in his son having the ability to "make a difference" in a football game. As far as Saban "choosing" not to play him I'll never believe that. Ever. CNS relies on his team doctors and trainers to advise him of a players physical readiness to perform. If they're not ready he won't risk their health for a football game. This loss ain't on Nick Saban's roster management skills.

    Yeah, that was the only part that I didn't care for. Saban uses the Catapult system to tell if a player is ready, even if the doctors have given him a medical clearance (and he was cleared). If Miller was not able to explode off of the LOS, he would have been completely ineffective. If he didn't have full strength back in that leg, he would not have been able to hold the edge on run plays. He didn't play because it was better for him and the team that he not play. But Miller and his father probably feel like he could have made a difference, even in a limited role.

    Didn't realize CNS did this but I agree with the decision to not play him based on the performance issue. Either way I ain't gonna second guess or question his roster management and player health risk decisions especially in a high stakes game.

    Nothing wrong with pointing out that the SEC is a much tougher league than the ACC.

    Everything that he states is valid, including repeatedly crediting Clemson for being ready to play and winning. The facts that he is relating are important to framing the perception of the loss. He is perceiving the loss with a mind set that I hope that every Alabama player and coach has: that the circumstances of the loss were unstable, internal, and specific, rather than stable, external, and global. In other words, Alabama had a bad game under circumstances that Alabama can control and improve upon, which motivates coaches and players to work to analyze, improve and succeed, rather than surrendering to helplessness.

    And that's another reason it's best to just keep some of your thoughts and opinions to yourself. Without the content the writer would have very, very little to exaggerate about. But Miller's dad gave him plenty.

    but it's really not debatable that the ACC is a pathetically weak conference...that's just the truth.

    there were 2 teams in the ACC that finished with 10 wins, the SEC had 5.

    we played the #4 team in our championship game and they played a team that ended up 7-7.

    sorry, but the ACC is a joke.
    But that joke of an ACC team sure beat the stuffings out of your team.

    He was criticizing the conference, not Clemson. No one here has anything but respect for Clemson. You might want to tone down the rhetoric, though.

    He was talking about teams that only put up 3 points in a bowl game

    Some people just "skim" when they read.
