The national championship game....


challenged a lot of previously held beliefs. #92 for Bama was a horse but, Clemson had four, or more, of those on their DL. The rest of Bama's front four did not appear to possess the same level of speed/quickness/explosiveness that former Bama D lines had. As you stated, Clemson's D line manhandled the Bama Oline. A film review will be fun for Clemson, not so much for Bama, as there were multiple instances where Clemson linemen threw Bama linemen aside or on their keisters like rag dolls. To me that was the story of the game and college football in general. For the longest time the SEC has been defined by the jumbo, fast athletes in the trenches on both sides of the ball. That is generally not found with anywhere near the same level of frequency in other P5 conferences but, Clemson had those dudes all over the place on both sides of the ball.
