Kirk Herbstreit tells how Alabama should attack Clemson in Sugar Bowl

Kirk Herbstreit has seen Clemson play a number of times this season, including last weekend’s 38-3 demolition of Miami in the ACC Championship Game. As a result, he knows exactly how he would attack Clemson if he coached for Alabama. Photo by Jeremy Brevard / USATODAY Full Story »

If we take care of the football and don't give up big plays (easier said than done), we win. Bama's offense is not good at sustaining drives and Jalen Hurts has not yet won a game with his arm.

I agree. The trepidation is gone, and they are seen as just another good opponent that can be beaten. We have to play sound football, but we match up very nicely against them. I do think Kelley Bryant has to have a good day with his arm, but if he opens it up a little, we win this game in very workmanlike fashion. We do need to keep the offense opened up without getting so clock conscious and trying to run too much, but if we successfully mix it up and keep up the pace, they lose. Period, end of story!

And that's the big time Clemson friend using his loyalty trying to tell Bama how to scheme Clemson for a win against his friends of Clemson!!! Maybe that is why he said that Clemson needs to be very concerned about playing Bama. Maybe It's bc he has seen so many Clemson games this year, and he wants to shake and bake by giving Bama some tips on what he has seen all season with Clemson, and he wants to help :)!!!

Kirk has a tough job and has to find ways to look unbiased. There is nothing he said that means anything. If I had to bet, he is secretly hoping Clemson kicks the $#!@#$%^&* out of Bama. Heck he wore a Orange and Purple tie for one of our games last year. He is the only one on there that I listen to at ALL.


"Two seconds"??? Come on, Mr. Steele.

I mean, it was a great defensive strategy. They held us to just 35 points.

4 of our scores totaled about a 105 yards...I think they were 43,41,16 and 13 yards . Not of yards can be made on the ground when the drives are so short.


Maybe that was part of their diabolical plan to limit

They held us to 38 points...cmon man, it's hard enough for us to get fg' s without you taking em away.

And, yeah, I hear your sarcasm.... 4 out 5 scores were on the ground. They stopped the run in every situation except the ones that " counted".

I thought since Miami used that defensive strategy and it worked so well for them that surely Saban would follow suit.

As far as Herbie's dum-bass comments, there is no way to defeat Clemson's offense other than keeping it off the field and our defense has something to say about that.

I though it was amusing the the spread, FPI, SOR and all the other stats they push to prove Bama is the best that Herbie and the rest of ESPiN's talking heads are worried about how Alabama is going to beat us. That's rich.

Excellent point. Clemson ran very little against the Gentle Breezes and still won by 35! 'Bama beware. :)

I'm sure Herbe will provide a sequel, due to his sense od fairness, to advise Dabo how he would play the tide. Bet Dabo can't wait.??

I think its refreshing that somejuans trying to figure out how Bama can beat the Tigers
rather than the other way around.

and state how you think Clemson should attack Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.

It seems like all the pundits can’t wait to offer advice and point out our weaknesses to our opponents, but I never see articles to the contrary. Wonder why that is ...

Maybe they feel our team and coaches are so good that they don’t want to have to muddle through another boring broadcast with Clemson blowing out their opponent. :)


I think most everyone here is missing the point.

After pushing FPI, SOR and all ESPiN's other stats all year to prove that Alabama is #1 they are fretting over how Alabama can beat Clemson. That's bassackward to an entire season of their #1 Bama rhetoric.

It is his job. He is usually as fair as he can be. He even picked Clemson to possible blowout OSU last year.

This will open up big plays by providing one on one matchups on perimeter. KB will eat them alive with the short game and swing passes to backs. They will not be able to cover our wrs in space for those 5-10 yd passes (slants, back shoulder, hitch routes). Then you will see Cain or bama killer Renfro do a double move (ie the td cain had against the canes) and get huge plays.

He forgot to mention that Bama would have 100% chance of winning if they scored more points by the end of the game.

I like Kirk but this article is basically saying nothing. "Hurts is going to have to make plays with his arm and his legs"......yes, and the other 21 players on the field will have to do the same.

I agree. Not telling us anything we don't already know. Here's another twist. If Jeremy Pruitt is leaving, this may create a little bit of chaos/uncertainty on the defensive side for 'Bama. Last year the Lane Kiffin move certainly did not help, though I realize that was only a week before the game.

If I was game planning against Clemson...

Stopping the Clemson offense is about getting consistent pressure.
You can't sit back into coverage. You gotta take your chances with
one on 1 coverages and bring pressure on Kelly Bryant. I've noticed
when teams do that, our offense struggles alot. Bryant doesn't have
a quick release and needs ample time to throw. And now it seems his
running game has taken a hit as well.

against our defense, its about moving the chains and making quick throws.

Perhaps. But the Clemson offense is still racking up plenty of points and drives against pretty good defenses. The Tigers don't need to score 40 to win. The defense is awesome.

It’s interesting when Bama playing tempo is mentioned.......Big Nicky was one of the original tempo haters, railed against regularly....funny how things change.
