The biggest difference to me is how each team handled "losing".
Clemson owned their loss and didn't make any excuses.
Following this year's game, Bama has made a bunch of very public excuses.
In 2018 our Offense (the OL especially) played their worse game of the season vs. Bama. Our coaches/players never made excuses. Neither did the make idiotic statements like "We Beat Ourselves", "It Really Wasn't Anything They Did", etc....
In this year's NC 'Bama got exposed.
Excuses like the ones they're making make me think it'll happen to them again, sooner rather than later.

They didn't have a problem with that the previous years. The last 8 or 9 years ESPN proclaimed Bama as the greatest team of all time. The hype was there when Deshaun beat them in 2016. Everyone proclaimed that Bama was the greatest team and would be the first one to go 15-0. Well Deshaun and Hunter ended that hype. This year it was 2 true freshman. Next year it will be 2 true sophomores. ESPN has to keep up the hype because if they don't then how else can they explain how Bama blows through the SECheat as easily as they have. Seeing as the SECheat is the great conference to ever filed a team. Oh the SECheat ended up going 6-6 in bowl games/NC and the lowly ACC finished 6-5 with the BC game getting cancelled.
