daily reminder Syracuse would have beaten this absolute juggernaut of a Clemson team if not for refball

Losing or almost losing a game they shouldn't is the greatest tradition in Clemson football. Their last title team lost to Pitt after all.

Ok so now Bama is just getting straight up boatraced. What the hell is going on here? 

 

Don't worry, Bama & Clem will play for the NC next year and the year after that and the year after that and so on and so forth.

I finally understand why SEC schools keep firing coaches that can't beat Saban. What a pack of losers those guys must be.

 

Has anybody actually fired a coach for not beating Saban?

Les Miles is probably the closest to actually being fired for basically that reason. But it comes down to failing to meet expectations and everybody in the SEC thinks they should be able to compete for the SEC title, and if you don't beat Saban, you're not winning that title. It's mostly a narrative that gets spread a bunch and I decided to make a very hilarious, incredibly genius joke referencing that.

You could say that Tennessee has fired three: Fulmer, Dooley, and Jones.

 

While at Alabama, Saban has not lost to Tennessee.  His last loss to them was in 2001 regular season at LSU and got revenge in that season's SEC Championship.

I feel like the only way we avoid this is Saban or Swinney take their talents to somewhere else. But at least we knew it was the two best teams playing tonight. I don't think any other team could whoop Alabama like that and I'm certain if they played 9 more times it might be 50-50.

I mean... Dooley won 15 games in three years, so it wasn't just Saban. 😄

I could see Dabo replacing Saban at Bama if or when he retires.

Pretty sure that was the loss that knocked the Vols out of the title game vs Miami. Granted, they would’ve been slaughtered even worse than Nebraska was in the championship game, but still...
