It doesn’t take a week to prepare for a Kelly coached game plan. Dabo already knew that.
got absolutely destroyed and humiliated by an ACC team.
Cubelic played for Auburn, then went straight to the SEC Network.
on a team that you don't even know you'll be playing? Prepping for Bama for a month not only assumes that you will beat ND, but that Bama will beat OK
I doubt Dabo got to where he is by looking past teams and only focusing their prep on big games.
I’d say that’s a pretty good source.
He said nice things about ND after the fact. During the game he could have had his team hang 60 on us.
And Clemson stayed aggressive as hell on offense until the last 7-8 minutes. Your claim is just crap.
They just dominated them by playing the way they had all season. Their QB is transcendent and their WRs are awesome. They abused Bama’s young, inexperienced secondary. Clemson’s offensive line was superior to Alabama’s DL...
Their DL, among the best in the history of college football (that’s not hyperbole) was able to defeat Bama’s very good, but not exceptional, offensive line. Tua did not have time to pass and made some poor decisions when he did.
was to spend all of their time preparing for them and not Notre Dame?
Surprising that this was the conclusion of an expert from the SEC. I bet he consulted with Finebaum (who was visibly shaken in the aftermath of the Bama tragedy).
but I don't think Joel ever made any claims that he knew it to be true. I'm guessing the "rumor" grew from there.
And Cublic should have known better than to post it. The notion that a major college football coaching staff would ever do that is comical on its face. That would have been an easy recipe for an ND win. In fact Clemson’s coaching staff was concerned about numerous aspects of the matchup with ND’s defense, even more so than Alabama’s.
As has Clelin Ferrell.
"I spoke to Clemson Coaches, this is completely false. “Quite the opposite” I was told. Spent bowl season preparing for Notre Dame. Only spent a week on Alabama..."
Regardless, we have a long way to go.
