Listen: Clemson, Alabama And Jalen Wattle discussed on Gary Jeff Walker
"The ESPN app. Twelve seventeen to go in this national championship game. Sean McDonough Todd Blackledge at the booth Holly role the Fitzsimmons on the sideline Alabama three times in the second half in good position to score. And they still have not scored since the break. It's forty four to sixteen in favor of Clemson the Clemson defense held on fourth and goal from the two. And who are we taught to question perhaps the greatest coach of all time. But I'd have to question the coaching took a long time to get those plays in that was the strange play. Call design run outside by two tunnel by lower. And and it was almost like they felt like they needed to try to trick. The Clemson be on that downplay. I agree on both counts. They took too much time. They weren't able to get the ball in the end zone. Then they went to a trick play on fourth down still down by twenty eight now. Is trying to run as much clock as a canon. I nine it is Adam choice. You slip is except the handoff dropper one yard loss. Back at the eight yard line. They had gone Ford Alabama on Ford now nine times say they don't get the four down to go forward very often and win every game. They were four out of nine coming in the gone Ford. Six times on fourth down tonight failed on the last three. I just think they're in such uncharted waters. This is a team that's been ranked number one all the way through the season. They had their way with their entire schedule. They only trailed significantly at all one time that was in the SEC championship. Second in eleven more using all the time. They snap it with to Obama bulletin back throw and it's too far down the far sideline for sprinting. The Andrei Overton look like he had a little bit of room near the thirty. But the ball out in front of him. Excuse me was Jerry on Kendrick the intended receiver lawyers third down at eleven. Clemson started one for three on third down seven out of eight cents. Another other reason why they in this commanding position with eleven twenty eight to go. Alabama's desperately in need of the fraying out on defense. Four receivers for Clemson, the Whiteside left. The running back is choice for the right up. More standing on the three wedding. First shotgun snap yet. That's quickly throw back shoulder. Incomplete off the hands of Justin loss with Josh job in coverage very close to the first down the near side of the nineteen yard line. You're shocked that Ross does it come up with the catches. He's made in these two playoff games. This was a really nice play by Josh Jobe. Just kind of fought to the end of the play was able to knock the ball out. Ross frustrated with himself and little pop up and down that he didn't catch the ball after it hit the ground. So we'll fires will result endzone for Clemson. Jalen wattle is back at the fifty yard line. Now, he's creeping up towards the line of strategies only about thirty yards off the field rugby. Punt by Spiers runs. The right hits a low duct to the left. Wattle started running over the field. And it takes a nice bounce the plunge and he did want to pick it up. It was too dangerous by the time. He got to the ball when it rolled all the way to the forty eight yard line of Clemson, rebel Obama. Pardon me. Excellent by spires, forty four yards eleven twelve left fourth quarter. It is Clemson forty."
