TUSCALOOSA, AL (WSFA) -It became clear mid-way through the third quarter Nick Saban would not earn his 7th title. The Crimson Tide simply got out-coached and out-played against Clemson.
“I was actually very surprised and very upset. I knew we had it in us but Clemson just out played us but I know we’ll get them next year. Roll Tide,” said one Bama freshman.
“I am surprised. We had a great year but you know no matter what, it’s still Roll Tide we’re proud of them. They put up a fight. We’ll get it going again," said another student.
“I also had faith in my team, the quarterback. Being a senior, I’ve been here all four years. It’s been a great season, great game,” said a bar patron.
“I’m not going to lie. I am little disappointed but I feel it’s.. we expect so much, so used to being on top, but we have next year,” according to a senior.
Clemson ends the season undefeated while Alabama suffered its only loss in the game that mattered. No celebration this time around in T-Town but training for the new season isn’t far away.
Had Alabama won, Nick Saban would have broken Bear Bryant’s overall record for national championship titles.
