"The Lions find left tackle Taylor Decker, who by the way is having year has a bad shoulder, did not practice on Friday. That's usually not a good indication he is listed as questionable for his tilt with the Colts linebacker Jalen Reeves. Maybin also didn't practice Friday. He is questionable as well. Meanwhile, cornerback Darrelle Roberts limited practice on Friday as he battles that growing hip deal. He is questionable cornerback Desmond Trufant, who has missed his share of action of late with that hammy, limited practice on Friday. I think the general thought Is Desmond True Fund will be able to go next week. We'll let you know, but I do have this for you. Alliance activated cornerback Justin Coleman off injured reserve yesterday. Coleman has not played since week one because of that hamstring injury, but is expected to return to the starting line up at slot corner. The Lions also signed tight and Isaac Nauta from the practice squad yesterday, and they wave running back both Scarborough and signed defensive tackle Albert Huggins to the practice squad. Plenty to discuss with our good friend Torrey Petrie. Detroit lions dot com Tori How are you? I'm good. How are you guys? It's good to chat with you on a Sunday morning, the day after Halloween. And judging by what you've been posting lately, you take this holiday. Very seriously. Guys. Listen, 20 twenties been a rough year. Something had to be fun about it. I decided it was gonna be Halloween. And just one costume wasn't enough. So I went for two. One day this week on our show on Fox words to try was Moira Rose from Shits Creek. And then this Saturday, I was Taylor Swift from her newest album, Folklore. I was going to say, Not only do you follow Tory for the great Lion info, but I'll tell you what. That that gave me a good chuckle on Halloween. Well done, Torrey. Glad. I'm glad I have fun with it. And I'm glad everyone else enjoyed it as well. We all need a little bit of cheeriness in our lives. Amen. You better believe it. Now The lion's looking for win number three in a row. Torrey and It's going to come against this cold team who has a pretty formidable defense. No question about it. Top five and points allowed rushing passing. You certainly get the impression that the Lions are gonna have to find the end zone early and often. Matt Prater field goals. I don't think going to get it done today. Yeah, I would agree with that. The Lions definitely have a huge challenge. In this Colts defense. However, the strength of their game has been their offense, and that does work out well. When you're playing a team that has a really good defense, so hopefully their offense is able to come through. Today they could get that run game going and they can find the end zone, not just settle for those field goals because that is In fact, what what it's going to take against a really, really good Colts defense. Notorious, It's amazing. The more things change, the more they stay the same. You have Philip Rivers, who's had a really good career. Leaving l A after being in San Diego on and coming to Indy, and you know what? It's the same Philip Rivers. It's almost like you don't know what you're going to get week. Two week one week he might look like the best quarterback in the league Another week you're going. Wow. How is this guy lasted so long, but with that being said This is a guy that can light it up with the best of them. Yeah, we had T J laying on our X factor segment this week, and he usually picks a guy that needs to play well for the lions and a guy that the Lions need to stop on the opponent in order to win the game, and his thing this week for Philip Rivers was When you get pressure on him. That's when you see him struggle, and he gave two different examples from film of Hey, This is the X factor for the Colts. This is who you got to stop, and it comes with getting pressure on the quarterback. They were able to do that better last week against Matt Ryan. It's still isn't quite showing up. In the stat sheet because it's a lot of pressures and not as many sacks, But we did see that key sack fumble last week between Romeo Okwara and Trey Flowers. We need to see more of that this week, especially against Philip Rivers, because that's how you throw this coltsoffense off. Centauri and closing, speaking of getting pressure on the quarterback during his stay with the Minnesota Vikings lasting some 10 years, ever since Griffin was just poisoned against the Detroit Lions, 16 sacks in 19 games played. He is now a member of the Honda, Little blue and silver. He'll make his debut because of covert protocol next week. I love this signing. Yeah, I absolutely agree. And I think Everson Griffin loves it a lot as well. Oh, yeah. Social Media Post this week. That's been pretty fun to see. It's always exciting toe to see a guy pretty hyped up to join this team, and I love that move. This team needed more from their pass rush. They went out and found it. You know, Ever since Griffin has absolutely terrified Matthew Stafford over the years when he was playing for the Vikings, like You said those 16 sex lines. Fans know him because he found his way into the backfield so many times when he was playing for the Viking. So I think that these efforts pretty relieved to have him on his team now, and that is a great addition. To this lines pass rush, and I'm looking forward to seeing what he's able to do. It's too bad that he wasn't able to join this week. But give him some time. And when he is out there, I think I'll make an impact. Alright, Taylor Swift, always a pleasure having things guys good to chat with you Take care. Take care that is a Tory Petrie with this here Detroit lions dot com Muchmore to share with you as we count you down Lions Colts. This is Lyons Radio. Heading out on.

"One thing that keeps sticking out to me is how these teams over the recent years Ohio State in the secondary Clemson upfront Bama front some of these teams that just have super loaded where they're gonna lose seventy guys to the draft invariably. It seems like a guy further down the roster turns into a really good player. You know, whether it's an atom Humphries just that type. And I'm wondering having watched Clemson and Bama who stood out that is gonna get drafted probably not in the first round is still going to be a really good player that may just some of these guys that get further down these rousers that we're not talking about. I wouldn't be shocked if Albert Huggins wound up making an impact I mean, he's impressive from Clemson. You got four guys that are going to be drafted three potentially in the first round with Christian Wilkins Cleveland Foral index or Lawrence then yet Austin Bryant the other starting defensive end who's probably gonna be amid round pick and then Albert Huggins. When Dexter lords is out because spend in the two playoff games comes in. And does a really good job. He's been a great backup the last couple of years for Clemson. And I think he's a day three pick and a player that nobody really knows outside of you know, huggy bear is the nickname. But as a guy who's never really started at Clemson. I think he's gonna wind up getting drafted and could wind up, you know, making a roster and contributed in the NFL couple of guys real quick Mitch Hyatt the left tackle for Clemson four year starter Todd does he end up at guard. Right tackle, obviously, it left tackle the athletic quick is. But you give them trouble. But it is an inside guy can be a factor there and rent. Throw the third down star made a lot of big catches threat is career Humphries making it with Tampa Bay certainly hunter Renfro could. And for Alabama is say a is this the guy to have when your football team was banged up late in the year. But I think he showed this year that you could get it done at a fairly high level nine sacks. Yeah. It was all said and done. Yeah. You Costa ten sacks gesture that he was very much under the radar. You know, guys, I'll give you an example of how this played out this last year. But the Sean hand who is this kind of, you know, obviously, a big time recruited Alabama. But kind of just one of the rotational player did he run hot and cold? There's questions there. But you know, it's funny dish on hand was like a breakthrough player for the Detroit Lions this season. Arguably maybe the best player on that defense for stretches of the season became on hand came on the Dr show last year prior to the guy going he came on eight early April, and he had a chip he felt like, hey, it's a scheme. We'll talk about my numbers. He was highly motivated to prove the doubters and the skeptics wrong that hey United put me in the first and second round, I should be. He just had an attitude about him. And it was it was not just being cocky and arrogant was really real that. You could sense it. Hey, hand was highly motivated to really come in and make a splash. And that was that turned out to be one wheel of a pick. Yeah. It's just amazing. Some of these these teams, I mean, if you think about it if you couldn't necessarily break the rotation at Clemson, it's not a big shot you on the defensive line. I mean, you could have been on another team in just absolutely broken through. And then from the scouting standpoint. There's maybe a few a few less miles on that. Oh, dominator anyway, bro. Alabama had twenty two players drafted the last two years. Eight of them in the first round. I've got twelve more guys this year. Now, I've got to go back and look because a couple of gray. Davis has already said he's going back to school. But when the official list comes out, but before the national championship game in terms of eligible process. Spects? I had another twelve guys with draftable grades on it. I mean, it's just amazing.

Holly, Romany and Fitzsimmons. Clemson after its best drive of the night six place. Sixty five yards has taken the lead back twenty one to sixteen quickly. Holly Rowe on the Clemson sideline. Pulling the college football semifinal last year against Alabama. Clemson running back. Travis E T N was largely ineffective in their exit meeting. In January is offense coordinator said, hey, man. You faded on me the season he has gone back stronger. He's worked out more in the weight room. And you could see if he moved out pile of about six Alabama Ben down the field. He is definitely in great shape. Using that leg. Drive to score there at the single season rushing record for Clemson this year now over sixteen hundred yards for the season one of the free finalists Philadelphia. Walker award is the best running back in the country and what the job and Taylor. Wisconsin. Here's the kickoff from left to right, BT Potter bombs. Another one. Grabbed the back of the end zone landed about eight yards deep over the head of Josh Jacobs. So here comes Alabama back on offense. And what a start for to Tonga Loa. He threw. Early in the game for the first touchdown of this game by either team the for the game. Now, he's twelve out of fourteen for one fifty three two touchdowns and the interception and this Clemson pass rush. But it's been so outstanding this year. Fifty two sacks not able to get close to him right now. He's throwing on rhythm and starts out of the shotgun. With Josh Jacobs on his right? A hand off to take up the nice putt at the twenty seven yard line. A tackle made by Albert Huggins Nolan Turner the safety side of the former Alabama player, Kevin Turner. He made the tackle though. I'd rather whiffed on the tackle Huggins made it. I think right now the Alabama offensive line is controlling this front. Seven of Clemson as good as they are so far in the ball game. Second down and three Alabama. Moving from right to left ball near hash. Mark tongo. Buy low empty backfield. Five receivers free to the right now. Motioning do the right? Josh Jagan stack into the backfield. He takes a hand off on the right hip condo by Loa and runs left to yard short of the first down Nolan Turner up there again from his safety spot. Leland Furlan Christian Wilkins, there looks like they've gone to charter instead of us after myu got beaten the coverage against Judy on the big play in the first quarter for Alabama quick snap on third down in one hand off the Josh Jacobs here. It doesn't look like he got it needed. The thirty five yard line in the official headlines linesman trips Sutter from the near sideline Margate about a length of a football short. What will dick Sabin do on four inches Xavier? Thomas made the tackle the true freshman only tried to snap it quickly. But they they didn't rule Clemson Xavier Thomas is extremely explosive off the line of scrimmage relating the offense on the field. Both teams are substituting. Ten minutes to go the first half plus twenty one Alabama sixteen the tide lining up. Zip to go for it on fourth and inches. Direct staff to shake wind up on the wildcat. Again. He has the first down running up right guard. Got it to yards despair out to the thirty seven yard line where JD Davis linebacker tackle Bork wants them. Nice job running low underneath his pads ran right underneath the blitzing linebacker JD. Davis. It pulled the left guard Lester cotton ran behind the right guard. Got a good block. I intend Alabama nine thirty five to go. First half back in the shotgun. Three receivers. Too wide to the right? The running back Jacobs behind him to the right? Takes a handoff straight ahead and other good whole expenses off a couple of it. Lunges forward to the forty five yard line for gay debate. Sean I thought last week the absence of Dexter Lawrence would be a bigger issue against Notre Dame. It was not I think it is tonight. I think Alabama running the football with some pretty good success eighty seven yards now in the first half. This is a Clemson defense coming into the game only allowing ninety yards per game. A lot of runs up the middle. Notre Dame got dominated the semifinal by this Clemson defensive line, Alabama winning the battle of the line of scrimmage right now to the pistol hands off with Jenkins. Nice running right back toward the middle of the field and slips down at the forty four yard line of Clemson. But if Iran and another first down for Alabama six plays on the drive all of runs by Jacobs said that one eleven yards. He's been the go-to guy. The last two games the SEC championship game. And the Orange Bowl. He's been there leading rusher. MVP the SEC championship win over Georgia is forty two yards rushing. Eight carries Alabama on the move again trailing twenty one to sixteen. I the Clemson forty four. Out of the gun. Here comes up next to a straight back. And it is too. By Trayvon bringing it back up the near sideline across the party still going across the forty five. Front of his own sideline. The celebrating Tigers are actually gonna Markham at the forty seven of Alabama. There was a deep throw along the near numbers, and he just overthrew his intended receiver. Jerry, Judy and overthrow him by about four or five yard well and in both interceptions. It was the corners who had is on the quarterback who peeled off of coverage and made the play both times the corners reading the quarterback and pick them up. Thirty five yard return. Trayvon mullen. So each corner is had an interception Tongo by Loa through four all year Easter on to the first half tonight. Clemson back on offense. They marketed the Alabama forty seven right hash, Mark. Here has Mark. Let's see if they don't try to go down the field Jeep right here out of the gun Lawrence. Close to the line for Alabama. It's a hand off state ahead AT, and that's back left. And does inside the forty five of the forty four other tackle for the great winning Williams middle of that front three paraly-. Bama redshirt sophomore from Birmingham, unanimous, all American and the trophy winners the best interior linemen the country nearly midway through the second quarter. Now, Sean McDonough Todd Blackledge but Holly rolling and Fitzsimmons on the sideline. Twenty one sixty months. It has the lead a back and forth fight. This has been out of the gun. Lawrence time is he has a short set the low flow in the left what for hunter Renfro made the bed. Grasp Raper rolled by Lord sees about two yards. Short of the first down just inside forty and Clemson lines up quickly with third down at a short three up. Honey. Replay. Did look like Renfro just did get his hands onto the ball. Third down the short three along to seven minutes to go and a half left hash. Mark Lawrence in the gun. Three receivers the short side weapon wide to the right? Straight snap the war to grow has it. First down just inside the far sideline. He caught it about the line to make in one ahead for a couple of after the catch the thirty four yard line of Alabama. Tackled by Patrick's tan. He is at his best third down. In manageable finds those little pieces in the defense and uses his quickness to get open for quarterback. Or is he part of one of the biggest players in college football history. The game winning touchdown to the title game two years ago against Alabama with one second ago from the thirty four I down. Here comes up west Lawrence. Got it. Clan. It's incomplete look like it hit Justin loss there. My hands running a slant from the left with Patrick ser, tan, fellow freshman and coverage but the ball was dropped. They brought Shaheen Carter a safety man on a blitz from the right side. Patrick mistakes are tan was in coverage on that. I thought it was a good drove I thinks her Tam Monday got a hand on the football as well. John Simpson had his helmet taken. All he had to come out for this place on new left guard in there on this. Easter is the running back, Matt balk burst into left Gardez experience. They shipped taster TD left side of Lawrence slightly. Here's another Alabama. Plus, he wants to three pack padded up in the air. Still by Easter for about a two yard gain on the far sideline. Pretty Jennings is coming on a blitz deflected. The pass shorten to the left. They're very lucky that was the completion. He patted it straight up in the air piece Takata behind the line of spinach near a far sideline and actually made a short gate of it to the thirty one yard line. They picked up three here's third down and seven they need a twenty four by fifty two dollar half. Twenty one sixteen lady out of the gun war. They show Ben. They rush more straight back steps into the pocket. Tamari Rogers wide open fighting inside the tannin swung down farside live by Savion. Smith. Twenty five yard gain on third down and seven first and goal. I catch for Rogers in the game so much attention paid two hundred zero on third down. He was the clear out receiver on that particular play. And Rogers gets the catch for the first down Lawrence up to one forty eight passing. Alabama's one fifty three months leading by five China, add at first engulfing just outside the five left pass. Mark the far has Mark as we look at Donald a pistol ET on the running back takes straight ahead hand off and goes nowhere ran into Deontay. Thompson the safety who is up there around the line of scrimmage. Lawrence after a shaky start as found a nice rhythm. Both teams with a nice balance of running past tonight. Five minutes to go the clock. Running in half. Second goal Clemson from just inside the five yard line. DTM the running back. These on the web hit the warrants out of the gun. Rogers went emotionally to the left and comes back to the rain on the line. It's a shovel pass. Touchdown. It was going to be an option run to the right after warrants took the shotgun snap. He took a couple of steps. Stop shuttled it too. Anthony Jennings whiffed on the tackle and Travis E TM a touchdown machine has his third of the night. Well executed they pull John Simpson. The guard Jennings was unblocked could make the tackle. And big John Simpson came there and cleared the area out for ATM Trayvon Baldwin's interception. Got started. Drive a five yard touchdown pass officially through rushing scores and our receiving touchdown. Greg Hugo's extra point is good.

Second down jerick wills the soft more, right? Tackle out of Lexington. Kentucky. Big penalty. Now, it's harder for them to just try to Janet in behind this mammoth offensive line. Ball back just beyond the six yard line. The tie breaks the huddle tongue below looks like he's going to go under center. At least for the moment has Damian Harris behind him.

"For the second game due to his suspension. Right. These kids all came back this year three of them decided not to go and test their waters in the NFL draft to come back and play together. They said that they made that decision individually and yet that unit and that brotherhood Clemson coach, Dabo Swinney. Says it best they love each other. They play with a joy and an abandoned that I just haven't seen a defensive line play within college football. The more importantly they are productive. So even without Dexter Lawrence. They have forty five tackles for loss in twenty five sacks this season. These guys get after the quarterback. They can put pressure on the quarterback with just four and the guys who are backing up and replacing texture Lawrence Albert Huggins. He's got three point five tackles for last two and a half sacks Niles pink. And he's got tackles for loss enjoyed the Williams. They kind of rotate three guys into that position now projects, and they were all very productive and not a lot of drop there. But really look for the love and the joy that east is play with their part of that twenty six person senior class, and I think it's going to be special to watch them play together. One last time excuse me as senior class in Venables gets it all done for them. Holly. And I'll I'll speak about bread Venables with Trevor just a bit. But one final thought from you just injury update we talked with the Fitzsimmons about five ten minutes ago. Obviously, they have a big injury other defensive side. What are you hearing complaints in pretty good shape to injuries that happened late in the Cotton Bowl to their top receivers? So t Higgins has been a little bit hobbled with an ankle. She looked good at practice two days ago. But I did see him tweet get on a catch in the end zone at the end of practice. So that's just something to keep your eye on if he was able to turn that early that could be an issue and then Justin Ross who set a Cotton Bowl record with one hundred twenty receiving yards in the first half in that game. He missed most of the fourth quarter with a knee and ankle issue. He told me that he is fine. He looked good at practice. But those are the two speed burners for Clemson and the and the wide receivers. And so they have got to hold up and not tweak those injuries as the game progresses, and oh, yeah.

"Our next guest producing this fine Showtime to better that will come in and put on NBC for me because eagles a neat bears are about to get underway. Forgot james. We got back on the air that from my bad. Sorry about that time again make a deal with electric second football game of the day coming up bears and eagles in Chicago. There's a big football game to be played tomorrow. We're going to talk about it with our next guest couple of accounts. Whipple notes. I want to get into with him joining us from CBS sports dot com. CBS sports network abound with us on CBS, sports radio Barton Simmons college football analyst and insider part Jody Mackey. How are you today? What's going on? I'm doing well doing appreciate your coming on. Why are they playing this game in the bay area tomorrow? I don't know. I mean, that's that's that's not my area of expertise is how they get these things scheduled and all the the business Macintoshes behind them. You know, I think we've probably could've guessed three years ago. The two teams with the in it. But it is what it is. And I think we got the two best teams in college football. We just happened to be playing a long way away home store, they're on their world, tour, Clemson and Alabama. They they play in enough different towns. They might as well, take it out to the left coast. And I understand the weather hasn't been great. And might not be great tomorrow either. Right. They put it out there were at least in part. I think they put out there. So they can say college football, national wide bub-bubba all the other reasons at least in part, Dan to think what we're gonna be guaranteed. Good weather because it's out there on the west goes, perfectly fine, rainy and chilly the last couple of days and supposed to be tomorrow as well. Yeah. And ironically, it's pretty nice and in south east right now. Twenty spot where you could find good weather right now. I'm actually in San Antonio right now. I just got done with the all American bowl. And I met the coaches convention and beautiful in San Antonio is about seventy degrees today. So on. You know, it is a little bit unfortunate that they're speaking out there and get some less than perfect weather, Mr. scouting head who's going to be the number one draft pick in the two thousand and twenty two draft seeing as you probably saw him today in the all American ball. Well, you know, what we're gonna go quarterback the guy that was that balled out in that game. Is heading to a program. That is doing a pretty good job producing quarterbacks. Spencer rattler is heading Oklahoma. Who is very similar and skill set to Baker Mayfield. And Lincoln Riley is getting just a crazy embarrassment of riches at the skill position. Once again, so it's it's interesting. You know, we're talking about this sport being dominated by two teams and in Alabama and Clemson. You know, I still believe even despite the deficiencies on defense, if you wanna bet on a team kind of be in that that next up, you know, other than maybe Georgia. I think Oklahoma's your best bet particularly with that Alex Grinch offensive coordinator, higher really believe Oklahoma's gonna continue to be not just a contender. But I I think they'll win a national titles in the next four years. Interesting answer. I didn't know I was gonna ask the question. 'cause you told me I didn't know you were at the all star game down there in San Antonio. But it plays into tomorrow's game. Kazaa? I'll tell you. I think that to attack by law will be the number one pick in the draft next year, and Mr. Lawrence may be the number one pick in the draft the year after and you gave me a quarterback guy for the air to that. You just saw finish up his high school career today before going to Oklahoma. It's not going to be a quarterback that's taken number one in this draft. Some people speculating that Haskins school be the top quarterback drafted this year. Herbert decided to go back to Oregon for the season. Yes, needs also play a big part in where someone is taking the teams that are willing to trade up and or make moves to get aggressive to go get guy if you're just talking about evaluating them in their overall skill set and putting a ranking on players position be darned, where do you think Haskins ranks in all the players who are seriously considering becoming eligible and the seniors where would you rank him overall in football player ability going into the draft. Well, I think he throws is pretty a ball. In college football. I mean, he's just a pure thrower. He always has been, you know, one year starting that didn't that didn't scare people off for Mr. Bisky, it it certainly had a productive year record breaking year. There's. There's a little bit missing there. In terms of of what I'd like to questions. I'd like answered I think, you're you. Don't get a sure thing you don't get a complete picture because of some of the the thrill is used asked to make an in a lot of it was mess. Ralph stuff throughout the season. He can make all the throws. Don't get me wrong. But but operating within a, you know. Appro style. NFL often Ryan day really helped him in that regard picky helps his case. I think he's probably the best quarterback in this draft. I think he's probably more the middle of the first round in terms of talent. But because quarterbacks premier position I think you could see him drafted extremely high. It's not one of the first couple of weeks. So you think he would come in rank somewhere between thirteen and twenty on the list of just ranking them in order and not worrying about filling any kind of positional need you somewhere between the thirteen to twenty Twenty-eight best player in this year's draft. I think that's a fair range for him right now. You know, I I went to to watch the Penn State Ohio State game and Happy Valley this year. There in person. Look that was a game. He had a pretty nice game from a number standpoint. But there are some moments that game where the stage was was really big that was a fantastic environment. And and and there are some moments in that game where he didn't look like the best quarterback in the country. And and there's been some moments. You know, even in that baron game, though, he put up career number seventy two times or whatever it was. He didn't look like he's not a perfect prospect. And but I do think the upside is there, and when you think about the fact he's only started once season when you think about the growth that's in front of them. They can absolutely make a case to muddle the first one level talent and again because quarterback is such a valuable position if he's the best one, then there's no telling how high who's got the better upside of the two quarterbacks will play tomorrow in the championship game for you. Well, upside of gosh, I mean, that's that's a tricky question. I really believe in. And and Trevor Lawrence this guy that since high school he's a four year starter as in highschool eastern for three thousand yards every year. There's never been a moment too. Big for him. And we saw that in the Cotton Bowl. His arm talent is special. I just think that too. And again, we're we're splitting hairs here to phenomenal talents. Got some real intangibles not only in terms of the you know, the magnetism that he has as a personality. But also a guy who is just so comfortable in the brightest under the brightest lights such a no flinch mentality. And I think his passing instincts. Just to the little things in terms of. Elasticity trajectory, timing anticipation, that those are sort of things that I think has just can't teach these small or not necessarily a ideal size. You know, he was down there in this game. But I was at this past week when he was in high school we measured him. He had some of the biggest hands at the event. So he's gonna he's got kind of physical traits despite not perfect height. Kid with huge hands who can absolutely sling it. And it goes great arm talent. I'd have a hard time picking anybody over him. Understood Lawrence makes it a conversation 'cause he's talented as well. But like I said, I think they're going to be back to back number one overall picks. But that's just me with you. We're talking to Barton seven CBS sports college football insider, he with us on CBS sports radio. Both of these teams have outstanding defense. We're talking a lot about the quarterback. But they both have their work cut out for them. Because there's a reason they were the number one and two team all year long. And a big part of that was defense what he thinks got to tougher task will you? Thanks got the better D, Clemson are Alabama. Another question. And I think it's a complicated answer because I do the Clintons been a better defense this year. But I think there's been very few teams that have the offensive line that can hold up long enough to really challenge the secondary. I I think there's one area we're a little bit deficient. It's at the safety position. In pass coverage. Alabama is not their best Alabama. We've seen not even necessarily. I think just generally an Alabama level defense. It's very good. It's one of the best countries were used to different level under Nick Sabin defense. I'm not sure this. You just got it. But there's no real deficiencies across the board every level. They're they're very solid and they got playmakers everywhere. I think there's a there's a there's a minor deficiency. In the Clemson defensive secondaries wiser safety position covering receivers and Alabama has offensive line that they can hold up. Enough to maybe challenge that deficiency. So so my answer is I think Alabama's got a slight advantage of this game giving what they can do offensively. But you know, it it's hard to argue what that Clemson defenders done all year, and I do think Dexter Lawrence being out. Three hundred fifty six four six five three hundred and forty pounds of athletic. Big potty beef missing even with Albert Huggins being a worthy replacement. You still losing something there. And I think that that stings a little bit. So that's a long answer. With me saying I think Alabama has a slight edge here. We're talking about comparing enough. This is Clemson Alabama part four fourth straight year. They will have met in the college playoff twice in a championship game once in the semi finals. Of course was last year Alabama has taken to add a three is there, a psychological edge to be had here knowing there only a handful of players that have played in all three bunch of played to some only played in last year's match up. The coaching staff have been around intact for all four games. Is there a psychological advantage in this game because Alabama's one of the first three meanings over the last three years? I'm not sure I'd go there because when you look at this constant team and all the decisions that were made to return whether it was not no Dexter horses implant, but whether it's structural warranty. Chris Wilkins are or Mitch Hyatt or any number of these guys who could have played in the NFL from quenching that they all came back for this purpose. This is a team that's all been here with the exception through freshman starting quarterback seen father lost national champion. They they've all been there. I think they all hungry at anything. There's sort this motivation factor that look that we all want we we gotta get back in and and redeem ourselves from last year, and and and I think that there's two teams here that are very experienced that aren't new to this spotlight. And and we gotta Quincy coaching staff. Like, you mentioned it's almost completely intact. I mean, Alabama's at least had some turnover. The coaching staff. I don't give Alabama edge in terms of of the mental side of things because I just think Clemson so motivated dabble Sweeney soaks cues to being here. I think he's going to have his guys ready. And and I think they're going to be if anything have little chip on their shoulder. You mentioned a couple of stalwarts on that Clemson defensive wine and Lawrence isn't gonna play because of the positive drug test, which did those two D lineman. He thinks could be an NFL better NFL player. You know, I think Dexter Lawrence may actually be a little bit. More of a unique player, Christy Wilkins is a fascinating guy because of what he can do athletic. He is the personality he brings to the table the energy to a roster. But I I think Dexter warrants turns to his size his ability to to both the athletic along the line of scrimmage, but also clog up running lanes. I think he's a little bit more valuable in NFL circles. But I tell you I mean, the guy that really emerged this year that's gonna top and both probably in the NFL draft is a kid on the other side.

"Me from the Marty Smith podcast on sportscenter with Kibo Keith Olbermann last night talking about how Clemson to just without one of their star defensive lineman going into the biggest game of the season. Next to Lawrence is absence from clemson's defensive lineup in the national championship is substantial from a depth and talent perspective. This guy's a consensus. First team all American three hundred forty pounds extremely agile a disruptive force for that great Clemson line. But this is not a surprise clemson's prepared as if they wouldn't have Lawrence for the better part of two weeks. Now, his backup Albert Huggins. Whom they call a co starter proved to be a worthy backup in the Cotton Bowl without Lawrence Clinton's defense, held Notre Dame's great running back. Dexter Williams to have his average output both in yards per carry. And in total rushing yards. Dexter Lawrence being out is still a huge blow. This is a guy that when you talk about continuity and depth, which are other worldly important in any sport. But especially in college football, we see depth and quality depth will out time and time again when you get to this portion of the season because you are at the end of a year full of attrition. You are at the end of a year that is an absolute grind of a season. And then you get that forty day or so layoff before the semi final order to try and retool that in the best teams are the ones like Alabama and Clemson that have demonstrated extrordinary depth throughout this. Now, it is a match up where it's the fourth time in the college football playoff. We've seen these teams matchup, obviously, the trio of national championship meet ups the one semifinal match up from a year ago. It's something that we become all all too accustomed to. But it got I think the ultimate facelift in this year, which is at the quarterback spot. Right. Like, you can you could keep cycling Alabama running backs through different guys in that stable all these freak test tube baby running back that looked like they were constructed in the same lab. You can throw as many hunter Renfro on the other side for Clemson. Why all the jokes the other day from our own. Randy Scott here on ESPN about just how long hunter end froze managed to stay in a Clemson uniform. He's gonna find a way back next year. We already know it's you can book that one. But with this team, you got a facelift at quarterback for both of these teams and for Alabama. We know it has been centered around to a ton of I lo and ever since that midseason change for Clemson. This is the season long version from Daboh Swinney of what we saw from Nick Sabin and the national title game last year the gumption to make a switch of the most important position on the field. When everything is. Is going well in this case for Daboh at least in the national championship. Jalen hurts had been struggling in the first half. There was a lack of production. And there had been this growing surge to try and get to on the field for them for so long Kelly. Bryant was playing well, but when given the opportunity Trevor Lawrence played better, and they said are ceiling is trying to beat Alabama. And that to a guy that they have over there running that offense in a way, we've never seen from that team before and Trevor Lawrence has responded, and for a lot of people the biggest response came in the biggest stage so far his performance against Notre Dame in the way, they took advantage of certain things with stellar. And they believe he's enough. Now, the other major factor, and that is the last time we saw someone give Alabama a truly good game. Was that SEC title game? We're two was banged up. So for more on that ankle to a tongue of I lo- that surgically repaired high ankle sprain. Allison Williams are ESPN reporter join Keith Olbermann on sportscenter last night putting Alabama's head athletic trainer. Jeff Allen are two hundred and eleven hours from the end of the semi-final game to the. Part of the national championship. He wants his quarterback to a ton of Isla receiving therapy in two hundred and one of those hours on his surgically repaired ankle that includes stem therapy for pain management, cold, compression, to help prevent swelling and inflammation to actually sleeps in this device.

"They say absence makes the heart grow fonder distance makes the heart grow fonder. I never really know which one of those applies, but regardless. I got really accustomed to a standard of living during bowl season during our time off in December where I was given the gift of football damn near every day throughout the course of that time period and the last few days since January I I've had to live in a world where that's not the case anymore, and it's been a hard adjust.

But when you've got these teams, especially as close as a lot of the Rottweiler car races were towards the end of this year and the way it worked out there some per tick. Regularly juicy matchups across the board that we're going to get to in about fifteen minutes here, but we also have college football's national championship getting ready to go on Monday. And we got an update on what had been one of the bigger stories and one of the more shocking stories going into the semi final weekend. Dexter Lawrence, Clemson, defensive tackle all American. Who because of a failed drug tests was suspended for the college football playoff semifinal. Now finds out that he was also that he will also be suspended for the college football playoff national championship. Along with Brendan Galloway. Their tight end Zach yellow their offense is an offensive lineman for Clemson the three players tested positive for a banned substance per their request Clemson submitted an appeal and the b sample for that drug test also showed trace amounts of that substance.

This is a guy that when you talk about continuity in depth, which are other worldly important in any sport. But especially in college football, we see depth and quality depth will out time and time again when you get to this portion of the season because you are at the end of a year full of attrition. You are at the end of the year that is an absolute grind of a season. And then you get that forty day or so layoff before the semifinal in order to try and retool that in the best teams are the ones like Alabama. And Clemson that have demonstrated extraordinary depth throughout this. Now, it is a match up where it's the fourth time in the college football playoff. We've seen these teams match up obviously, the trio of national championship meet ups the one semifinal match up from a year ago. It's something will we become all all too accustomed to. But it got I think the ultimate facelift in this year, which is at the quarterback spot. Right. Like, you can you could keep cycling Alabama running backs through different guys in that stable all these freak test tube baby running backs that looked like they were constructed in the same lab. You can throw as many hunter Renfro is on the other side for Clemson. Why saw all the jokes the other day from our own. Randy Scott here on ESPN about just how long hunter froze managed to stay in a Clemson uniform. He's gonna find a way back next year. We already know it's you can book that one. But with this team, you got a facelift a quarterback for both of these teams and for Alabama. We know it has been centered around to a tongue of I lo and ever since that midseason change for Clemson. This is the season long version from Dabo Swinney of what we saw from Nick Sabin in the national title game last year, the gumption to make a switch of the most important position on the field. When everything is. Is going well in this case for at least in the national championship. Jalen hurts had been struggling in the first half. There was a lack of production. And there had been this growing surge to try and get to on the field for them for so long. Kelly. Bryant was playing well. But when given the opportunity Trevor Lawrence played better, and they said are ceiling is trying to beat Alabama. And that to a guy that they have over there running that offense in a way, we've never seen from that team before and Trevor Lawrence has responded, and for a lot of people the biggest response came in the biggest stage so far his performance against Notre Dame in the way, they took advantage of certain things with stellar. And they believe he's enough. Now, the other major factor, and that is the last time we saw someone gave Alabama a truly good game. Was that SEC title game? We're too or was banged up. So for more on that ankle of Tunga by lower that surgically repaired hiatus sprain. Allison Williams are ESPN reporter joint Olbermann on sportscenter last night. According to Alabama's head athletic trainer. Jeff allen. There are two hundred and eleven hours from the end of the semi-final game to the start of the national championship. He wants his quarterback to a tongue of law receiving therapy in two hundred and one of those hours on his surgically repaired ankle that includes stem therapy for pain management, called compression to help prevent swelling and inflammation to actually sleeps in this device. In addition to aquatic therapy and the pool the message to their quarterback every second counts first and last year on ESPN radio. It's amazing how when you're in that world how normal that. All sounds like you're used to living in the training room and getting all that and being on a treatment plan. You're used to seeing guys go to bed with these strange machines wrapped around their knees and ankles and all these weird body parts, you normalize that part of your life so much. But then you remember the thing we always talk about the other half of these kids lives at they're supposed to live where their students, and they're supposed to be kids and all that stuff. Like, no that's a job for those two hundred one hours out. Of the two hundred and eleven hours. You got a job to do leading up to that championship game. And his ankle is going to be the entire difference. Because if it's the tour that we saw in the semifinal game where despite what he said after the game about that ankle, it looked like there was damn near nothing wrong with that. If that guy shows up Alabama could win this game by ten eleven points. They could be a double digit win. And if that ankle falters at all we gotta show because that kid on the other side that eighteen year old true. Freshman Trevor Lawrence who has to be in college for two more years showed us the bright lights are not too bright for that guy. Coming up next. If you had no rooting interest in the colts Texans this weekend. Deandre Hopkins may have given us all one that's next here. And I last on ESPN radio. Back.

"albert huggins" Discussed on The College Draft with Ross Tucker

"All right. Monday night. Eight pm eastern time, the college football playoff national championship friend. It is our Bama, it is Clemson should be absolutely epic. Let's start with the Clemson D line against the Alabama. Oh line. Yeah. We talked about that that match up in the ours. Ball last week that Oklahoma all line against Clemson analysis, flip it look at the Alabama line against Clemson v line. We'll see if Dexter Lawrence who was suspended for the cotton ball. You know, if he's going to play in this game Albert Huggins, the senior as far as we could tell seems to be played and he played pretty well. So next Christian Wilkins Cleveland Farrell Austin, Brian, obviously, a very talented group going up against an Alabama offensive line left tackle, Joe Williams, the center Ross Pierce Bach or another senior there unless they're cotton as well at right guard a very good group. Are they going to be able to protect to attack? Oh Bilo against that. Clemson defense. The front. He's banged up. Obviously with that ankle are they going to be able to get after him an impact to enough. So that you know, kind of throws them off rhythm and keeps him from being a complete impact player member. We've seen that over. The course of the you know, the latter stages the regular season the Georgia game the Auburn game. They show that if you can get him if you can pressure him get him off rhythm keep him from being comfortable. Now, you can you can kind of make some hey there. So it's going to be interesting to see if this Clemson defensive line can kinda wreck the game here for the Tigers. How about shutting down the run and all these Alabama running backs? Yeah, we talked about the Harrison Jacobs and both Harissa guy. I think you look at this Clemson defensive front KENDALL Joseph obviously at line backer. I senior a lot of people are high on trade trae Lamar who was a finalist for the two buckets award. It's going to be big for them to stop the run. You know, it prevent you wanna prevent from getting into a rhythm. But stopping them from running the football. We'll be big. And then honestly on the opposite side of the football. It's just as important for Alabama. You know, we talked about ATN and how special talent he is MAC Wilson Dylan, Moses the talented inside linebacker to four Alabama. Both those guys that appears we'll be back for tied next year. So a good opportunity for both of them to go out on a high note on this season as they get ready for twenty nineteen but that would be a big key to the game there for Alabama making sure they locked down Travis CTN. And then, you know, really, honestly Ross the. Big thing is how's it? How's clemson? Good matchup with Alabama. You know, we talked about all those receivers Judy and rugs and Waddell and devante Smith, and you know, Irv Smith, how are they gonna match-up Trayvon Molin? This the junior corner. A lot of people are high on six one hundred ninety pounds AJ Terrell a really interesting player as well. Thirteen mile conference. This year marks fields inside player was a senior, you know. And then Isaiah Simmons the linebacker safety hybrid matching up against our Smith. How are they going to match up? That's going to be one of the big things that I'll be watching from the Clemson defense out in space and then on the other side of the ball. If you're Clemson. He's got all this young talent. You know, the Justin Ross T Higgins, obviously hunter Renfro. You always seem to have a big game against Alabama. Will he find a way to get it done? Big spotlight moment here for Trevor Lawrence Jake from even in a losing effort last year. Really did a nice job in that game against Alabama will will Lawrence be able to kind of shadow that and make those kind of same plays. Look Alabama showed that. They're obviously very young at corner..
