With all due respect Pauly, I don't agree at all with this claim of an "SEC myth" or "SEC garbage". The truth is that teams have figured out a way to put up a lot of points on any defense - tempo. Also, everyone has known all year that there is one way to put up points on Bama (in addition to tempo) and that's with multiple talented/big/fast WRs and a QB that can improvise and also fit the ball into tight windows. Clemson is a great great offense with tons of match up advantages against Bama and Bama still held them to 5.16 yards per play and I'm sure that was considerably lower before the 4th Q. I can't imagine any other defense in the country playing as well against Clemson in a title game, except maybe LSU, who is also in the SEC. Nobody has ever claimed that the SEC is the most dominate conference because of offense, and that's what let Bama down, their offense. In short, just because Clemson's offense has tons of matchup advantages over Bama (we could talk endlessly about how Saban's schemes match up against Clemson's offense) and Bama's offense is not great, doesn't mean that their defense and overall team isn't great.
