I have to agree with @50+yeartidefan here, jd. The scoreboard definitely showed a dominating win, the game within itself didn't. We witnessed a clavacade of unfortunate circumstances. Still a loss though, right?
What strikes me about this notion of Clemson now being the overall top program is what has happened since that date in January. But, I won't start there.
There's no doubt Clemson is getting the best out of their players/recruits. However, there's also no doubt that Bama has been getting higher quality players, and has more depth, than Clemson.
Now, we're a few months away from that January evening and what's happened since then? Is Dabo a better coach than Saban now? No one is going to stand behind that statement sans a few uninformed fans. Does Clemson now have more talent than Bama?
Goodman shows how misinformed he is with his piece here. (That shouldn't come as a shock considering his resume that includes articles suggesting Bama fans would rather have Dabo than Saban, the Sexton year at Bama was bad for basketball in Tuscaloosa as was Colin's contributions, and now this.)
How is he misinformed? I'l cite one example supporting the earlier statements on depth.
Let's not forget this past February when Bama signed the #1 class (247 rankings) that included
3 Five Stars
23 4 Stars
1 three Star.
At the same time we have Clemson signing ...
1 Five Star
12 Four Stars
15 Three Stars.
**Now I'm seeing people freak out about the current class Clemson has committed...with signing day seven months away.
