OT: Clemson vs Alabama, who you got?

107 posts in this topic

The dreaded last game of the 2016-2017 CFB season is here. Who wins between Clemson and Bama? I think Clemson CAN win, but I think Bama creates a special teams or defensive touchdown that is the difference:

Alabama: 24

Clemson: 17

I'd like to see Clemson win but I don't think they will.

Side note: I have a FB friend who is both a Patriots and Alabama fan (she actually went to school there and grew up in Tuscaloosa) and she is pretty unbearable this time of year.

I picked Clemson in my Bowl Mania, but only because I'm up by 1 and the guy in 2nd is going with Clemson so I'm hedging my pick on that

My head says Bama...that D is too tough. My heart says Clemson, I want to see Saban the 'Genius' lose to Dabo and the Gropers.

 

Hey that's a good indy band name....Dabo and the Gropers

Alabama wins going away.  This Clemson team just isn't as good as last year, and I think Saban unleashed a beast last weekend with Scarbrough.

I would rather Clemson win, but Tide rolls.   S-E-C chants will be had, everyone will say they didn't watch, others will say they are done watching CFB until Saban leaves, and Oklahoma and Michigan will still think they should have been in the playoffs.

I personally don't give a crap and won't be watching..........but might as well wish Clemson good luck because 

1) I used to live on Clemson Lane in Reno (just west of Wooster HS)

2) I really don't care for either the SEC or ACC but I see Alabama as the greater evil thus Clemson

Clemson by 10.

Clemson D is very good and under-rated - almost as good as bama's.  They will shut down the run (19th in the country) and make Hurts throw the ball to win.  The only run defense bama has played that is statistically better than Clemson's was LSU (14th in country - 3.40 ypc) and bama rushed for 4.2 ypc and only scored 10 pts.  

I see a couple of Hurts picks resulting in points deciding this game.

Clemson O is balanced enough to move the ball on the bama D.  Bama won't be able to send just four to pressure Watson as his OL allowed the fourth lowest sack percentage in the country this past year (sacked on just 2.6% of pass attempts).  Plus with his scrambling ability if they bring 5-6 then he'll tear them up on the ground (given man coverage) or find an open guy one on one.

On an earlier thread I picked Clemson in an upset win because I root for the underdog (or undercat in this case). I'm sticking with the Tigers. :rock:

I'm going with Clemson in this one. They have a very good defense, that didn't always how how good they were during the season. 

I really think that Watson is going to be the difference maker in this game, and they'll pull out a hard fought win.

I also think that Satan's ego, in the form of dismissing Kiffin, is going to come back and bite him in the ass.

Nope, not a typo at all. I can't stand the +++++er. He +++++ed my Dolphins over so badly, and he's a lying, unethical, manipulative piece of shit that takes advantage of whomever he can.

I want the changing offensive coordinators to be a distraction for Bama.  Bama got beaten up by the defensive line of Clemson last year as well.

I hope Clemson wins 35-31.

I think Bama will win by a similar score.

Just realized that I couldn't care less. I guess I'll probably have it on while I get some work done though. 

Probably 'Bama.

ESPN goes with the 47 year old Gimme Shelter as the opener. Strong choice.
