I wouldn't be surprised to see SMU use Kayce Medlock like Clemson uses Artavis Scott-that's actually how he was used in high school too. Both wear No. 3

Clemson turns the ball over but manages not to have the play itself turn into a TD - that's the key. Non-offensive TD's is how 'Bama has steamrolled teams this year. Give their solid D a chance to stop the still-freshmen QB without Lane's play calling and the Tigers have a chance.

Notice how Clemson has been running plays with the RB Wayne Gallman as a split receiver and then bringing him back across the field on a jet sweep or use him as a outlet receiver, I'd like to use Braeden West in that role. There are still formations/plays to this Offense that SMU hasn't fully installed-I notice every time Clemson plays-and I noticed SMU adding new formations/plays late into the season. In 2015 it was really vanilla in comparison to what you can do with the right pieces

Navasota made a living with that play...it is dependent on having a tackle that can hold the edge. Interesting to see if Alabama adjusts if it gets more traction.

BUS needs to find us more Big Uglies.

Clemson feels like they are playing to keep it close instead of winning.

I agree gostangs. Clemson is playing not to lose. They need to play with more confidence. Especially Desuan Watson. He is playing not to make a mistake. They need him to be the man, they don't have enough to beat Alabama straight up.

So I was right after all. I can't remember who owes me an apology.

That was a pretty huge drop.
