    I agree with those who say that the 3-2-6 is designed for us.

    Dabo and Brent know they can beat everyone on their current schedule using that defense, which appears to be designed to shut down exactly the kind of offense we run.

    In essence, they’re installing their Bama defensive game plan over the course of a season rather than over a couple weeks.

    I’ve noticed that Lawrence gets a lot of the short passes over the middle batted down and it looks like it’s because he is literally throwing the ball down rather than up because of his height.

    Clemson runs 4-1-6 dime defense. 2 OLB are replaced by two extra CBs to counter 4 wide set.
    Next, they use 3-2-6 for third down alignment. They use Strong safety to bring down to the box to spy or blitz. They would use Mike and Jack LBs on line of scrimmage to confuse QBs and OL in calling wrong protection.

    How do we counter 4-1-6 and 3-2-6 defense?

    Easy. With eight defensive players lining up near the line of scrimmage and only three in the secondary, it leaves areas open for receivers to catch passes. Tua would have to make quick throws and get ball in the exploited area. Think Dan Marino's game against Bears in 1985 season. Find the hole in Clemson's 4-1-6 and 3-2-6 defense and get the ball in the spot quick. We've seen few wrinkles in the offense in last two weeks. I wouldn't be shocked if we expanded on that down the road. We can take advantage of their aggressive blitizes by running outside runs, quick screen passes, WR motion. We have to come up with something that forces Clemson to show their hand on defense.

    We have the personnel to expose their defense.
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    Not only that - we had them in the NC game. We once again under Loxley refused to abandon what had worked for something taking advantage of what they were giving us...

    that was one of the things that confounded me to no end throughout that game.

    Was ol' Joe Lee going, er, point-counterpoint vs. 'Bama going fast or to match up with Saban's scrapping of his own hosiery?

    First: This is an awesome thread. I am learning so much. Thank you guys for breaking this down and discussing it.

    Second: I have thought that Kellen Mond (Texas A&M) was not a very good QB and looked very substandard in the Clemson game. Was it this defense giving him a lot of trouble making him look like a poor QB?

    Mond is good one game, average the next. I am sure Clemson's D confused him, especially the game being a home game for Clemson.

    I hope Mond has a great game vs Auburn Saturday and has a bad game vs BAMA Oct 12. He is a run threat also, so I hope BAMA will be ready on defense for that game !

    Early on Clemson seemed intent on not letting Mond beat them, but after 2 drives it became quite obvious that Mond couldn't hit the ground if he tried which allowed Clemson to focus on stuffing the run. For Venables, Mond being off that game was like a kid in a candy store, that game was over.

    Or, as Kenny Stabler said about Andrew Zow after one particularly poor game: "He couldn't hit the lake from a boat today."

    No, no blue font. Look, I know this is a football discussion board and this has turned out to be a pretty good thread. But ever since last years loss it seems like there are many posters way too obsessed with Dabo and Clempson. We did not get “out schemed” in the Championship game. We got out played and out coached. Coach has said many times that any given team can get emotionally fired up for 3 to 4 games a year. That is perfect for the ACC schedule which is why Freeshoes had such a long run. Heck, even Georgia may fall in to that category. But we must get up for at least 5 usually 6 games a year in the SEC West. So, we could very well get out played if we make it that far without running out of gas. But the scheme…no, not worried about a scheme. Coaching and in game adjustments is a concern but not a scheme. And the teams playing in January will not be the same ones playing this weekend which is why my focus is on Southern Miss. Gotta get better one game at a time.

    I differ somewhat. I think we also got outschemed. I don't think their defensive method would work against the offense presently being run. This year, their offense doesn't appear to be on the same level...
