    Best offense in the history of Alabama football. We played one bad game at a really unfortunate time...I for one do NOT believe that a train wreck was inevitable. RTR!!!

    I thought we looked absolutely unbeatable—until the LSU game. The cracks began to show after that. I’ll always think that injuries and poor linebacker play were the main reasons we did not win it all in 2018.

    I think there's too much being made of this loss and too much being made of the win. There was so much national angst and fatigue built up against Alabama that the result of the game has created this enormous sigh of relief. As if it were like the ending to a movie and the credits rolled and it was over. Everyone can now go home, please put your empty popcorn boxes and soft drink cups in the garbage on your way out. However, the reality of it is, Alabama is returning what should be a better team in 2019. Herbstreit even mentioned several times toward the end of the title game. I would venture to say even Dabo knows what Bama's returning. He admitted to telling CNS after the game "See you next year". Trust me, he knows what Bama has recruited and what Bama has coming back. He also knows what he's losing.

    And I hope that if Bama faces him again, they crush him

    That comment makes some good bulletin board material for Clemson's ACC opponents as it appears that Dabo thinks he can once again breeze through the ACC schedule next season unscathed. That could very well happen but it might make it a little harder when Dabo gives his own players a little bit of "Rat Poison". I don't think Coach Saban would ever make such a comment.

    And the bad thing is, he's more than likely dead on right. I watched several of Clemson's conference games (including their conference championship) last season and I promise you, outside of maybe one game. They could have put their entire second and third string on both sides of the ball and won.

    Our season has basically been boiled down to a few games every year. This upcoming season it will be aTm, LSU and AU. I don't expect any other team on our schedule to keep it close. Whether that should be considered a weak schedule or not I don't know. Really hard to compare schedules and opponents until scheduling is standardized which will probably never happen..

    I agree—and with our current schedule configuration we won’t know how good we really are until Thanksgiving weekend. THIS is why I wish they would change up our schedule and move some of the more difficult games to October or even September.

    That's rather presumptuous to say "see you next year." How does he know he's ​going to be there next year?

    I he said it to Saban, it was almost surely a sign of respect. He expects Alabama to be there next year. You can argue that he is also presuming that Clemson is going to be there, but I doubt that this was intent. I don't care for Dabo for a lot of reasons, but he does not strike me as that kind of guy.

    Well, with that schedule, something would really have to go off the rails for him not to be. He probably feels the same way.

    Re: Well, Has CNS Started on the Clemson Game Plan Yet ??

    Had a dream last night. Well, more of a nightmare.

    We were playing in the natty again. Facing UGA and Oklahoma. Thats right three teams in one game. First half was kinda close. We struggled, but stayed within striking distance. Then in the second half, the wheels came off, with Georgia and Oklahoma rattling off scores, and OU getting the best of everyone. OU had 62, UGA 50, and Bama a woeful 5 (but with a safety apparently!).

    This is the world I live in, albeit with bigger priorities, or so I think. I was very relieved to wake up in a cold sweat (it was 2 degrees outside, having warmed up substantially), and remember that It was time for work.

    Bonus fact: no Clemson!

    For the record, deep down ive been thinking its OU UGA and Bama who will challenge next year. Maybe someone like OSU slithering in. Kind of explains the structure and contents of the aforementioned nightmare, I suppose.
