Alabama was 2-for-15 on 3rd downs tonight. One of those misses was when they got 15 yards on 3rd and 16 late in the 4th quarter, which set them up for a very makeable 4th down and 1, so that is slightly deceptive. Still, even if you give them that one and call it 3-for-15, that is still awful for a 3rd down conversion ratio. It takes a lot to over come something like that and still win the game.

 

Also, Clemson had a huge time of possession advantage. Ask any college or pro football defense if time of possession matters when the 4th quarter comes around, and I'm sure that they would all attest that it does.

 

 

 

Clemson ran close to 100 plays on offense.  They wore Bama down.  And that defense has some studs.

I think the SEC is way overrated.  #1 and 2 SEC teams go down. In 2015 the SEC west was at it's best. They all got bombed in there bowls games.

You are wrong. One of the things that hurts sec teams in bowl games, they really play for NC and there is a let down. The sec has the best inter-conference record. They have the best players. There really are only a few teams that can play at their level.

Oklahoma scores 45 and 35 on Bama. Ohio state hangs 42 on them and then Clemson hangs another 44 on them.  Whenever they play someone who is good that's not in the SEC this is what happens. I was telling everybody that Texas would beat Georgia. Another SEC team that was way overrated. In fact in 2015 the SEC west got bombed in all there bowl games.

    • This is my position as well. It's not that I want to trade a player a like Mullins, but if Elias gets a trade offer with two or three really good prospects then you have to think about it. The goal is to be a winning franchise in a few years, and you can't allow any personal attachments to players in the organization to get in the way of winning. 
    • Again, your assumption is that if you trade away players x,y and z, that means we can’t contend.  That’s a poor assumption to make.
    • I don't want to trade them, or Mullins, or Fry, I just think that there is a very real possibility that doing so provides us with the fastest and most effective path to sustainable competitiveness.
    • Mullis is the best player on the team and right now he's one of the best players in the MLB. Since Mullins is under team control through 2025, he would be very expensive. The Orioles are going to need to complete the roster with some FA/Trade additions. Its nearly impossible to fill a competitive roster with draft picks, as you would have to hit at an incredibly high rate. Most Chris Davis's contract comes off the books after next year so if the Orioles truly want to be competitive, they'll need to work on signing the right guys in FA and making sure they lock up their home grown talent. 
    • That fans want to just trade away Mancini, Means and Santander is not the path to contention that I want to see.  Adding Adley, Grayson and DL next year is a big step forward.  Means , Grayson and DL plus two of the other 10 starters that will be in the organization to fill out the rotation spots is  a competitive move. Adley, Mancini, Mullins, Mountcastle, Hays, Santander add to a competitive team.   Vavra, Grenier, Dorrian are young players that may need to get a chance to improve the infield if they continue to impressive the rest of the season.   I think Elias' off season objective should be to field a winning and maybe a contending team in 2022.  He has enough improving players to build around.  Add the FAs needed to make this happen.  Mancini has shown that he is a important part of the offense and extending him a couple of years should make the O's into a winning team sooner. I do not like Hyde/Elias continuing to play Hays and Santander hurt.  I think they are good players when healthy.  They have Stewart, McKenna, Jones with  Diaz, Rizer, Turchin, all coming soon to bolster the outfield when injuries occur. As I have said the O's need to not waste the Adley, Grayson and DL years.  2022 can be a winning year if that is what Elias wants to do.  Its time to start winning.
    • Giving up high draft picks to bring Ubaldo Jimenez and Yovani Gallardo to the bandboxes of the AL East were 2 of DD's dumbest moves. I hated it then and was shouted down by people spamming "UBALDOMORE" over and over again like that somehow negated the fact that he had basically only had 1 good half season in the like 3 years prior to us sacrificing a pick to sign him. Ugh. Still mad about it lol.
