    Defense wasn’t the problem though. They played well enough for us to win, not being able to block their DL derailed us

    Not trying to burst anybody's bubble. But they went into super conservative mode after they got up 2 scores. They could have maybe scored 2 more times, if needed. Just my opinion.

    No they didn't. Saban wasn't constantly cussing out his OC for going conservative. Announcers even kept pointing out Saban wanted another score so he could get his starters out

    This is the wrong interpretation of Saban's outburst. Announcers were dead wrong. Of the part I could read his lips he said "just run the damn ball!" He wasn't upset they weren't scoring, he was pissed they threw back to back incomplete passes rather than running the ball and running clock where there was only 8 minutes left in the game. They went conservative and stopped trying to score. They played us the way we played Auburn.

    This part really irked me too. I know there was about a 1% chance of coming back at that point but taking your time on a 6 minute drive when you need three scores was pretty disappointing. It was clear we just wanted one TD to make the final score look better.

    All jokes aside, I'm pretty sure this loss is on me, guys. I've been here since we migrated over from TMB, but I took the year off from posting since last year's natty due to getting my shit together in real life and my priorities straight. Apparently that was the good luck charm, and I fucked up posting for the first time since last year's natty right before the game started. :okay:

    It's on me. I got too excited too soon for winter Olympics.

    I keep hoping this Olympics will be the one they combine the shooting from biathlon with other sports, but they haven't yet.

    With @Jake Scott joining before the season, DVU has been a hell of a good luck charm. Was 2015 our first season here?

    Saw this posted on TI. Did not realize at the time how wide the fuck open Feaster would have been if he'd been given the ball around the end. Might have been a TD. Is this the point where Dabo was yelling at KB and Streeter?

    We haven't run a true read even going back to the Morris days. Tajh couldn't do it, Deshaun was average at best at it, and Bryant doesn't appear to get it either.

    I don't think we have any idea how to teach a read play.

    Need to call Rich Rod and get him to come in and do a little consulting. He invented that shit and can surely help teach our staff to teach it.

    Was Dan Le Batard discussed here? This irritates the fuck out of me. A coach gets emotional with his QB on the sideline, which happens in almost every single football game at every level, and he pulls all of THIS out of it? A "why didn't you throw the ball away instead of taking the sack?" turns into this bullshit?


    “I got mad at Dabo again. I get mad at Dabo quite a bit because you do a lot of the Bible thumping and ‘I’m here to teach the kids.’ What I saw happening in Alabama-Clemson very early on is like oh Alabama knows all the plays. You’ve got nothing. You’ve got NOTHING. Dabo, you have nothing. So what does he do? He yells at his quarterback and I’m like oh that’s weak.

    “You’re getting exposed and we’re all watching this, Dabo. Nick had a month to prepare for this and you have NOTHING on offense. There is nothing you can do. So what does he do? He gets frustrated and screams at his quarterback. The quarterback who got him to where he is this season.

    Le Batard added that Swinney, who has guided Clemson to the College Football Playoff three straight seasons, is largely having success more so because of the quarterbacks under center than for his coaching.

    “Nick Saban always has the best players. The only way to come close to beating him is to have the guy who was about to take over the NFL (Deshaun Watson) at quarterback. So he gets carried by his quarterbacks to where he is. Dabo is a lifetime interim guy who now all of a sudden is championship famous and thinks he’s responsible for it or God is responsible for it.

    Dude is probably still bitter about the back to back prison rapes Clemson has put on Miami.

    He’s a fan of Miami sports so yeah he’s never going to like clemson. Pretty sure he did the same thing after our punter decided to call a trick play and got his ass reamed when it failed.

    I listened to Lebatard once. He was sobbing on air about John Skipper resigning. Turned it off.

    Not sure his show or thoughts are at all about sports.

    Saban always has the best players. Dabo was only able to beat him because he had the best player and now he thinks he’s hot shit. The nerve.
