DABO'S OLD TIME RELIGION A CONCERN
RACE BUBBA BANNON
There are a few things that you need to watch out for. A crazy man in a bar fight. A crazy woman in a one night stand. And in football, beware the true believer. And Dabo has all of his players and his fan base in true belief that this is the year of the Tiger, Clemson variety.
Dabo keeps preaching that old time religion and his Tigers keep winning every game in front of them. Oklahoma was no match for Clemson and only some creative choking left the game as close as it was. Oklahoma led at the half and had no shot at winning the game. They still haven't stopped Clemson who just scored again as we went to press.
Obviously Ohio State should have been in the 4th seed. If we want the 4 best teams then forget about meaningless conference championships and pick the 4 best teams. Ohio State beats Oklahoma by 4 touchdowns. The Big 12 is a horrible football league these days, nosing out the Pac12 for worst league this year.
Clemson is fast and bigger than you might think. Their defense was all over OU and the Tiger offense is led by the Magic Man, Deshawn Watson who may not throw a pretty ball but who runs smart and just makes plays and wins games. Lots of games.
Alabama destroyed Michigan State and the feckless Connor Cook rather easily as predicted. Old time power football is great but you line up and play it against Bama and you are getting your ass kicked. The B1G was clearly top heavy as in Ohio State and nobody else. Bowl results were a black eye for the conference. The Spartans earned their ass kicking and you had to have them in the playoffs. They were just no match for Bama.
Jacob Coker was the star of the game as alert observers predicted before the game. MSU stacked up to stop Henry and got worked over the top by Coker. The 38-0 ass kicking was about as thorough as you get.
But before you hand Alabama their 14th title and Nick Saban his 5th, you need to realize that Clemson plays the kind of game that can cause Bama problems, including losing. Now it is true that the Tide have made great gains over the long title draught in facing these fancy offenses with Afro American quarterbacks, but Watson's ability to extend plays gives Clemson a chance to score points. The Clemson defense is fast enough to get after Coker.
Nobody believes in Clemson, everyone is against them, they get no respect, they believe it is their time, Dabo is preaching the good news but sometimes belief runs into reality and reality wins. Henry will run for 150 yards in the second half as Bama climbs out of an early hole and brings home the title.
Bama 41, Clemson 28
Iowa sucks...we are calling for an immediate and permanent Rose Bowl ban for the Hawkeyes...Oregon jumped out to a 31-0 lead over TCU and was making reservations for next year's playoffs when a funny thing happened...Vernon Adams got smashed up...I laughed...TCU came back to win in overtime causing great joy in Mudville...The Huskies still suck but the doogs now have hope that Oregon will finally come back to earth someday...but then again, the Huskies still suck so who cares...FINISH tee shirts are now on sale in Eugene...Country Legend Clay Helton went 5-4 after replacing Sark...Hey, Petersen has gone 4-5 twice since replacing Sark...bidding war for the now rehabbed best play caller in America...Chip Kelly spotted in Eugene, Los Angeles, Iowa, and East Lansing...Washington turns its attention to the off season natty and planning a victory parade for having really cool analytics for a second division doormat. Thanks for reading. Or not.
