    I feel like we panicked a little given the fact that our defense was making mistakes and not stopping them.

    If we just stuck to our knitting, we would of been fine! As someone said, their defense was on the ropes, the plays run differential was taking a toll. Down 14-13 with the ball first and goal at the 2 and kicking a field goal, next series throwing the long interception really changed the game. Otherwise it would have been like all most of the other Bama / Clemson games 44- 41 or or 37-34. Something like that.
    to 16 and beyond........

    I still think we might of had a Jalen type problem with our coordinators/coaching staff. Good enough, with the talent around them, to get us there but just not good enough to finish.

    Believe the bigger issue was the distraction of jobs. It's just too difficult for a coach to do both well.

    Yeah, except for the pick six, they simply weren't stopping us.

    Next time will be completely different!

    I'd almost rather coaches who were on their way out just go ahead and leave after the SECCG. That way the remaining staff has a month of dedicated focus to prepare for the game..

    It wouldn't surprise me to start seeing this. Certainly Coach Saban has seen enough of this and will stop giving these guys the benefit of the doubt with their level of commitment to the team after they except other jobs.

    The play calling had me heading for the 'oxygen', or something to that effect, by mid 3rd quarter as well.
