How else to explain overcoming a massive talent gap with CLEM and being the next most competitive team we have faced other than ALA.  I know the rest of the last 2 seasons may not reflect those 2 “outperforms” but is still a remarkable footnote if my recollection of the 2017 game is correct.

The problem with the USC job is that one of our players gave a recruiting shoutout to the west coast that will undoubtably have a resounding impact.

Just one of our dudes shouting out after game:  “Yo, west coast, if you want to see some real football...come to Clems(I)n...”

You wouldn’t have noticed if weren’t drinking in every single moment of the post champ, you prolly missed it...

Don’t think we moved many USC recruits, but ???

Joke, and I know you have a sense of humor, so there’s the explication of the joke, which is a riot...

Thanks...I could tell somebody said something, but it was not clear from your original post...it almost sounded like a Clemson player said something positive about USC...and I knew that didn't sound right.

Steve Sarkisian turns down Cardinals to rejoin Alabama:

If so it's official, Nicky has become unhinged.

I read the ESPN article this morning and at first I found it to be further proof that the world has indeed gone crazy.

Thought Saban fired Sark...but after researching more it was supposedly Sark that left Saban. So this actually does make more sense:

#1) Saban's ego may not allow him to have been the one that was jilted, and/or

#2) Saban may be willing to try Kiffin 2.0 since he had the greatest success with Kiffin at the offensive helm, frankly. Question is will he actually change his dominating style with Sark - my guess is he is already steeling himself to try just that...but it probably won't work in the long term. Probably Saban just wants another year or two and then will retire. If the two of them can hold their collective s*** together for two years, there's a pretty good chance Sarkisian winds up as Head Coach of Alabama, IMO

It ain't over till the fat lady sings.

And here's the part that I've always said was arbitrary and gives the Committee an out on any final decision made. "The current selection committee protocol, which is used to determine the top four teams, requires that when "teams are comparable" the committee must consider championships won, strength of schedule, head-to-head competition and comparative outcomes of common opponents. None of that criteria is weighted."

An out for what?

So what?
The decision this year was the fourth spot. Oklahoma was a champion Georgia was not, both teams are power five teams who did not play each other. A no brainer.
