Clemson: I feel like the easy, cliche way to go about this would be to say that Clemson is out looking for revenge. That the Tigers are looking to avenge their loss to Alabama last year, and right a wrong. That’s not how I see it, though.
To me, this isn’t about revenge for Clemson, it’s about Clemson staking its claim to greatness.
Nobody can question that Dabo Swinney has taken over this Clemson program and turned it into one of the nation’s best, but no matter how good Clemson gets, nor how many ACC titles or playoff berths it manages to acquire, it’s never going to be considered to be truly great without winning a national title.
So when I see Clemson getting ready to take on Alabama for national title once again, I don’t see it as revenge. I see it as Clemson getting one more shot to get past the greatest obstacle that stands between it and greatness.
Clemson played a fantastic game against Alabama last season, but it wasn’t enough. So now it knows what it takes to beat the crimson juggernaut, but can it pull it off? That’s what we’re going to find out.
Alabama: This isn’t about legacy. It’s not about proving anybody wrong. It’s not about showing the world that your great. Nothing that happens in this game will affect Alabama’s legacy as a college football program. It’s already the most dominant program of our time, and it may even be the greatest in college football history.
Nobody doubts it, and everybody understands how good it is.
No, this game is about nothing more than continued dominance.
Alabama is inevitable. Alabama is unyielding. Alabama is looking to win its fifth national title in nine years. There’s nothing more you need to say about it than that.
