Dabo has beaten top teams(look at his record)clemson outplayed bama and had the lead,last year bama was a 7 point favored and escaped by 5 45-40!
LOL at "and had the lead" and " was a 7 point favorite and only won by 5"

It was a national title game not a powerhouse vs a cup cake. At no point is having a lead or covering the spread worth of mentioning in this context.

Clemson is a power house team and they are good as bama,by the way bama's weakness mobile qb!!!
Bama's weakness isnt mobile Qbs

Bama's loses that everyone attributes to mobile Qbs were all Heismen winners for gods sake. Thats not a weakness to running QB's its a weakness to great Qbs, the same as any team.

Quote:
Watson put big numbers on bama, this year he is EVEN better,and bama's offense sucks this year.
Bama's offense last year was ranked 45th averaging 427 yards a game. This year it is 31st averaging 460 a game.

Yeah, I remember when Alabama got roasted by a decent QB once.

Usually I cheer for anyone but Bama. But this guy and his threads have got me sitting on the Bama bandwagon tonight. Hate homers.

The ACC had about the best bowl run you can possibly have, and then topped it off with a Clemson championship win over Bama. They are definitely at the top of college football world now as an overall conference. Will be interesting to see how their teams carry the momentum into next year.

This year was the ACC's year. They went 9-3 in their bowl games including Florida State beating Michigan and Clemson beating Ohio State and Alabama to win the National Title. Apart fro Louisville losing to LSU, the other 2 ACC teams to lose their bowl games played well and their games were very close.

We'll have to see what they do next season.

Ohio State was the only team to be completely shut out during the 2016-17 bowl season. Iowa came close but managed to kick a FG.

The Big 10 has more than its fair share of championships and football tradition. I saw the late Bo Schembechler coach when I was at a Notre Dame game back in the 80s. I revere the memory.

In modern times, Ohio State has definitely shown the ability to keep up with the best of the SEC. But as happens in the SEC, once a team gets to that level it's hard to stay there. That's why most SEC teams do not go undefeated per season - even Alabama.

So it feels like the Big 10 has only 1 or 2 great teams the past couple of seasons. But the disparity does occur in the other conferences. The SEC East has lost the prominence it once had ten years ago. But that goes in cycles.

This article was written before the Alabama-Clemson game. The results of that game compound the conclusion of the author FOR 2016-2017.

But it honestly wouldn't surprise me if the Big 10 has another NCAA champ the next few years. These things run in cycles.
