Yes! That is my point why the system will not be changed due to this win. It strengthens the argument that someone other than Alabama can win, though Clemson won a couple years ago. I guess one could argue it is always 'Bama vs Clemson, but the ACC needed this win to keep it real. Would I like to see another conference in the CFP championship next year? Absolutely, and I think the NCAA would agree.

Alabama will certainly make that phone call and no one can predict the future. But I see very little upside to being the guy that follows Saban...

This is true. Dabo Sweeney is absolutely untouchable at Clemson, having long surpassed Ford in the imagination of their fans. Meanwhile, anyone who takes the job at Alabama will be judged by the mouth breathers against the greatest football coach in history.

True, but it will be very interesting seeing how it all plays out, especially if Dabo wins another national title in the next 2 years with Lawrence. Salary-wise, I think they are already some of the highest paid coaches with Saban having a base salary of $7.5 million and Dabo having a base salary of $6 million.

Let's just say, I wouldn't be surprised or shocked if Dabo took the Alabama job when Saban retired. I think he would like the challenge to see if he can win national titles there as well, and throw in he's from the state and graduated from Alabama, it makes it intriguing, at least to me.

Clemson's offense was really nothing special.

Quote:
The Clemson offense put up 35 points against what was supposed to be a solid Alabama defense on Monday night, but at least one Crimson Tide player was not impressed by what he saw on the other side of the field.

Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams said after his team’s 44-16 loss in the National Championship Game that the Clemson offense was “very easy” to defend. He said the Tide faced far better offenses before the title game.

“They weren’t hard at all,” Williams said in a postgame interview showed on ESPN. “They were very easy. They capitalized on a lot of mental errors. We made a lot of mental errors. They didn’t come out and do nothing special. We played greater offense than that – Oklahoma offense or Georgia offense. We just made a lot of mental errors and they capitalized. That’s what good teams do – they capitalize on mental errors.”

In hindsight, Clemson should have rammed the ball down their throats on that last drive to make it a 50 burger.

Let's just say, wait and watch it happen. Barring any unforeseen craziness that would prevent it from happening, Dabo will be going home when momma calls.

This is about as delusional as that Quinnen Williams quote I posted above.

Yeah ok, it will be a few years but write it down and wait for it to happen.

Wait for it the same way we were waiting for that Clemson butt whipping to happen? Okay. You guys are great at predictions.

Dabo going to Alabama would be like Kobe demanding to be traded to the Chicago Bulls in 1999.
