I love “what-if” strategy questions like this:
Love to hear somebody ask him about that at his next presser.
Although Dabo Swinney said Alabama sort of tried that.
Swinney said Tuesday that there was defensive pass interference on Clemson receiver Artavis Scott, who made contact with Alabama cornerback Marlon Humphrey and created some traffic that another Alabama defensive back got caught in on Hunter Renfrow‘s 2-yard TD catch with a second left Monday night…
“Yes, it’s a rub play, it’s a pick play,” Swinney said Tuesday. “Artavis was actually trying to go pick the guy, but he couldn’t get there because he got tackled. I mean, literally, the guy tackles him.”
Boy, it must suck when you’re trying to run an illegal play and the other team commits a penalty to thwart that. At least they got the winning touchdown out of it.
