Also wouldn't compare 18 and 19 year old college athletes going out the night before a national title to professional athletes going out either. But that's just my thinking.

I always read your posts. Respect your opinion. I do firmly believe we have the top two teams squaring off. This is one I truly wish I had good seats to see in person. Actually thought about doing exactly that. My wife's sister lives in Tampa and if hotels are booked could have stayed with her. But as luck would have it I've been body slammed by the flu.

Appreciate the kind words my friend. You're very respected, and one of the best (if not the best) cappers knowing the SEC.

You just had an unreal Bowls season. Hope you will continue your success for years.....

They are not the same teams as last year...defense for Alabama yes indeed but...Alabama QB is nowhere near the offensive passer as last years QB. Washington is not the total team Clemson is, and without a defensive turn over or TD by the defense, this tips the scales towards Clemson as compared to last year in your opening yearly comparison. Just my thoughts.

Thanks for your inputs. BOL with your picks.

Here are some facts: Alabama offense is better than LY, 39.4 ppg vs 35.1 ppg/461 Total ypg vs 427 ypg

As far as QBs comparison, Jalen Hurts is a much better overall QB than Jake Coker was. 

J Hurts = QBR 144/189 ypg/22 TDs 9 INT plus 64 rush ypg and 12 TDs

Jake Coker = QBR 147/207 ypg/21 TDs 8 INT plus 5 rush ypg and 2 TDs

Jalen Hurts gives Alabama offense a new and dangerous twist with his running ability.

I like it, Neil. Thanks for posting your thoughts. I have a friend that's VERY close to the program. Defense has been in a bad mood all week. They want Watson. Different plan of attack this year with the new D.C., Jeremy Pruitt. Kirby Smart was good, but way distracted last year going back and forth to Athens. That's another reason Kiffin was sent to Florida, by the way. Bama had their best practice of the year Tuesday. Again, defense is biting nails and ready to go. Offensively, Hurts is ready. The older guys "have his back" and will step it up to protect him and allow him to be successful. People complain about his passing, but don't forget he is a dangerous runner. I think Bama holds Clemson below 25. Bama will rush for over 250 and control the tempo, pull away late, in my opinion. Scarborough wins MVP. Roll Tide.

Thanks for your inputs. BOL

Yes the Tide defense was kind of (little) ill-prepared LY, though gave Tigers' offense credit. They did play a great game (grade A in my judgment) I am sure Kirby was not 100% on the game with all the meetings and recruits.

It was the same problem with Kiffen in last game vs Washington. Had Kiffen stayed with the Tide, I would go big on this game.

Quasimodo
They are the best team outside the SEC

Agree 100%. They are definitely the two best teams going against each other for all the marbles. BOL

I agree....This game there is no more trying to "develope" hurts......This game will bring out his instincts to win.  And sometimes thas a good thing.

Thanks faultless

I hope J Hurts will give the Tigers their own medicine trying to contain a great dual-threat QB

BOL

ive been in Tampa around the Bama hotel all week. Half the players come back at curfew at 12 then leave after they've checked in. Bama doesn't seem focused to me. big red flag for me. 

Thanks for the infos. I trust coach Saban to keep his players in-check. BOL
