After 3 years in a row of playing Bama


Posted: Nov 16, 2018 6:04 PM
 

Do you think last year was more , Nick figuring out our game plan. I mean basically the first 2 years we moved the ball at will. The 3rd year with a different QB but running the same plays we always do. They shut us down , I know KB ain’t DW.
I was hoping last season with a month to prepare we kinda run some new wrinkles . Do you think we would have to totally change gears this year or TL would be enough to run the O like DW did , to beat Bama ?

Our game plan with KB was easy to figure out. Major limitations in the passing game made it impossible to adjust.

He figured out our game plan when we had Dw4. He just couldn't stop it from being executed.

KB couldn’t throw the ball. Was too easy to gameplan against him.

TL can throw the ball so they can’t just load the box every play. We are a totally different team this year

No our offense struggled all year last year and he dared KB to throw and for our receivers to win 1 on 1 battles and we couldn't. This year I believe we have more success running because of the threat over the top with Trevor behind center.

Our receivers made multiple mistakes in the passing game, the backs couldn't block, and the play calling was vanilla. Against Saban, it was too much to overcome.

Our defense gave up 17 points and the other 2nd half score was set up by the nose tackle's interception, return and personal foul that set Bammer up inside our 20, I think the Tide had a little over 300 yards of total offense, in other words the D played well enough for a win. Saban exploited Kelly's limitations and our OLine didn't come to play - will not happen again.

Correction. The Tiger D really only gave up 10 points to 'Bama last year. One td came after the interception return + penalty put the ball at around the 20. And the other was a pick six.

I think last year was more of a match up issue. That being said, I would rather play Bama (Saban) giving them only 1 week to prepare than 1 month to prepare.

As others have said our receivers and OL played terribly as well.

KB2 lacked the skill sets on his best day to beat Bama

IMHO any Clemson fans with knowledge of team dynamics that did not bet Bama last year missed an opportunity for free cash, even if like me, you were all-in pulling for Tigers.

This year Bama is still the favorite as long as Tua is healthy and Nick Saban is above ground. Saban beat Tigers in 2015 with his on-side kick call and his regular season practice of that same play. This being the case, this year's epic Clemson Defense, with an unrattled TL16 and at least five superstar skill players, give Clemson a very real chance of defeating the Tide straight up.

Down here in Savannah town, I have a dozen or so debates with UGA fans about Clemson's chances to win it all vs. Bama. They give us no chance. But I like our chances to win - and I like our chances to win much more if we get Bama in natl championship instead of semifinals. The less time Saban has to prep for Tigers the better our chances. Go Tigers!

I work not too far from Savannah with a bunch of SEC fanboys and none of them give us a chance to beat Bama. I just laugh at em and keep right on going.
