Default Alabama vs. Clemson Prediction Thread

I'm assuming we are all College Football fans and not just ND fans so I am also going to assume most of us are going to watch the 2015 National College Football Championship with great interest.

I'll start by saying that I want Clemson to WIN! I really like Dabo Swinney and I have hope that they would beat Bama and kind of validate OUR team as one of the best in the Country but with the way OSU beat us, I really do believe OSU and Alabama are a notch above anyone else. I really think Bama is going to spank Clemson.

Alabama 44

Clemson 28

Clemson 30 Bama 21. Clemson's defense is stout and I don't see Bama controlling the game like they usually do.

I think Dabo is in over his head against Saban with this much time to prep. Also, the speed of Alabama's LB's are going to neutralize Watson in a way slower LBs (cough cough Schmidt cough cough) couldn't. Henry takes over in the 2nd half and it gets ugly

Alabama - 38
Clemson - 17

New found Dabo sentiment says Clemson 31-28. Cold reality says Bama 45-24. Just hoping for a game which isn't decided until late in the 4th. Tired of the damn blow outs! GO IRISH!

If Lawson is healthy, I actually like Clemson. 31-20 Tigers.

I am pulling for Clemson, but I will be shocked if Bama doesn't win by at least 17.

Saban's a god...but if he loses two National Championship games in a row, those idiot Alabama fans will question his employment. That will **** him off, and then he leaves for...

...dare I say it?

Bama 34-21 but not as close as the score indicates. I just think their defense is too good.

I will really be pulling for Clemson. Their best chance is to hit a couple of big plays early and get an early lead. Force Bama to be more pass-oriented.

He's already came out and said this. Almost exact word for word. To old and doesn't want to start over. Also, likes fishing, his house that was bought by Alabama and he money that is given to him. He's staying.


Heart says Clemson, mind says Bama.

Clemson -34
Bama -32

Well it looks like myself and atleastmysiswasirish win. Although he did correctly predict Bama's correct score but I was closer by the scores totals. Many of us knew Bama was going to score in the high 30's and 40's but NO ONE predicted Clemson would score so much. As "predictions" go though, atleastmysiswasirish predicted one of the correct scores so he ultimately wins. Here's your prize
