Clemson wrap-up: How Bama recovers – or doesn’t – will determine much of program’s...

Whether you're an optimist (“We still have Nick Saban!”) or a pessimist (“This was the beginning of the end!”) about Alabama football probably hinges on how many total points you thought swung about on two poor decisions and throws from QB Tua Tagovailoa, and Alabama's response to it.

Clemson preview: Is this Tiger team more Clemson ’16 or Clemson ’17?

This year, Alabama gets a Clemson team that is somewhere in between the last two versions. The question is how much like Clemson '17 can Alabama make Clemson '18 look.

Oklahoma wrap-up: Bama put this one away ‘Sooner’ than expected

Statistically, a person who didn’t watch this game would look at the numbers and suggest Alabama and Oklahoma were evenly matched teams, which is understandable. Anyone who watched the game and still asserted such, however, are the same people who are likely to believe salmon ice cream with Brussels sprout gravy makes a good dessert.

Oklahoma preview: Sooner or later, it all comes down to defense

Whether it's fair to either player or not, Alabama's playoff semifinal against Oklahoma is going to serve a second purpose: It will be a referendum on whether Heisman Trophy voters got it right when they picked Oklahoma's Kyler Murray over Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa.

Georgia wrap-up: A story too preposterous for Hollywood, but still so very real

From now until the day that football ceases to be played, is Jalen Hurts' legacy, and someone should carve it into the precast concrete of Mercedes-Benz Stadium for good measure: Here played a true teammate, unselfish and honorable, a good man and leader of men, a champion. Here was where Jalen Hurts was finally appreciated for the winner he always was.

Georgia preview: A rematch in name only, as so much has changed

The last time we saw the Georgia Bulldogs, they – like everyone else in the college football world – were staring, dumbfounded, at an Atlanta scoreboard trying to make sense of what they had just witnessed.
