Ohio State wrap-up: Tide bloodied the Buckeyes, but it won against an even greater...

As football is often compared to wartime conflicts, and coaching strategy to military maneuvers, there needs to be some kind of martial terminology fit to describe what Alabama football did to the rest of the sport's landscape in 2020. Because when the fog of war finally cleared from its Miami battlefield, it only revealed the same blitzed terrain that had been present in Alabama's twelve other skirmishes. The Crimson Tide had buried Ohio State 52-24 much the same way tanks bury any detritus that is unlucky enough to find itself caught under their treads.

Over the same time frame in which Nick Saban has dominated Southeastern Conference football – and if not for Clemson, dominated the entirety of Southern football altogether – only two teams from other conferences have been able to keep pace.

Notre Dame wrap-up: Bama D took advantage of Irish’s speed limits

Everyone has heard by now how Notre Dame struggles in postseason games, those games that come when the Fighting Irish can't either pick their own schedules, or hide within a one-other-team ACC. Had Trevor Lawrence not been sidelined with Covid-19 issues the first time Notre Dame and Clemson faced off in the middle of the regular season, Alabama would have been playing Texas A&M in a rematch today, or maybe Cincinnati if the media pressure to include non-Power 5 teams had finally reached the point it could sway the College Football Playoff committee.

Notre Dame preview: On paper, a balanced – but mostly untested – Irish team

efore we get into a review of Notre Dame's season-as-whole, we'll address the obvious, meaning the two games against Clemson that Notre Dame split: Yes, Notre Dame played the hands-down No. 2 team in the country and beat them once. But if the rest of the season is any indication, no one really knows if the Fighting Irish are really good or not.

Florida preview: SEC Championship Game could be a high-flying affair

Florida's Kyle Trask and Alabama's Mac Jones share a commonality that goes beyond just the position they play: Neither were ever expected to be playing the position this well, at this level, for these kind of stakes. If Jones' ascension to the position of starting quarterback for Alabama is odd to you, go read up on Trask's path to the job in Florida. Now, these two Clark Kents will be battling to see who comes out looking like ol' Clark's alter ego.

SEC Preview and Predictions: Week 13

Of all the games we had to work with for Week 12, the only game less likely to have been an upset than LSU beating Florida was Alabama somehow losing to Arkansas. But like a fast-starting racehorse in the Belmont, the Gators threw a shoe down the stretch and couldn't close the deal.
