When you snooze you lose. Alabama was snoozing after the LSU game which was the 7th game before the end of the season last year. Did Clemson deserve to win ? You bet they did. I mean it was 44-16.
Oklahoma could not beat Alabama 2018 just like it couldn’t beat Georgia 2017.
And Georgia could not beat Alabama either year.
So for that Clemson is the national champion 2018.
But Alabama did NOT play well down the stretch starting after the LSU game which was the 7th game before the season was over for Alabama.
That is a LONG STRETCH of badly played games by Alabama.
Kirby should have beat them too.
