Alabama Faces Clemson in National Title Rematch

CFSLogoGame-Day.jpg

Alabama Goes For Record 5th National Title in 8 Years

Alabama hopes to set a new standard for FBS schools tonight by winning an unprecedented fifth national championship in eight seasons. The College Football Playoff National Championship is set for Tampa Florida at 8 p.m. et on ESPN).

None of the legendary football programs, including Notre Dame under coach Frank Leahy who won four in seven seasons in 1943, '46, '47 and '49, Miami who won four titles in nine seasons under three different coaches (1983-91), Oklahoma in the '50s, under Bud Wilkinson who led the Sooners on a still unmatched 47-game unbeaten streak, Florida State despite finishing in the top five in 14 consecutive years (1987-2000), Nebraska who finished #1 three times in a four-year span (1994, '95, '97), USC in the 2000s, when it came within a last-minute TD vs Texas of winning three consecutive national championships and not even Alabama under legendary coach Bear Bryant who won three national championships in the '60s and again in the '70s.

They all come up short compared to the current Alabama run under HC Nick Saban. Saban hopes to match Bryant with a 6th national title in the poll era. Alabama will have to beat a motivated Clemson club that wants revenge in this title match from last season. Clemson actually held the lead in the early 4th quarter before losing in a thrilling championship matchup 45-40.

The Tide wins the old fashion way – very tough defense and a ground attack that pounds the rock. Under Saban’s coaching reign, their stable of big backs has no end and they rely on sophomore Bo Scarbrough to move the chains and wear down a defensive front with deceptive speed to break big plays. Freshman QB Jalen Hurts has directed his attack well, showing fine ball management with excellent running skills and consistent accuracy in the shorter zones. The Bama defense is one of their most dominating units in history with new records for defensive TDs in consecutive games. Their front has controlled the line of scrimmage consistently on both sides of the ball to make this incredible run of national titles. The defense features five future #1 picks, plus a few other highly regarded prospects that are part of this record setting unit.

Tonight they hope to set a new standard for college football champions.

Senior Bowl Names Bear & Brown Coaching Staffs

FoxBears.jpg

Senior Bowl Features Bears & Browns Coaching Staffs for 2017 Game

The Cleveland Browns and Chicago Bears have been selected to coach the 2017 Reese’s Senior Bowl later this month in Mobile, Ala. Players will arrive by Jan. 23 for the weigh-in and will begin practices the next day and the 68th Reese’s Senior Bowl is scheduled for January 28, at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile.

"The Cleveland Browns and Chicago Bears represent two of the NFL's flagship franchises when it comes to tradition and history," said Reese’s Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage. "We are proud to have them lead this year's North and South teams."

The Browns, led by their first-year head coach Hue Jackson, will guide the South team, while John Fox, in his second year as head coach of the Bears, will guide the North.

“Armed with a number of extra draft picks, I know the Browns are looking forward to working with and evaluating the South squad, while the Bears and their staff will embrace their opportunity to coach and scout the North roster.” Savage said.

Cleveland, which has coached in the Senior Bowl 10 other times, finished the 2016 season with a record of 1-15 and owns the top pick in this year’s NFL Draft.

“I’m excited about coaching the Senior Bowl,” Jackson said. “They really do an outstanding job of getting great players to participate in the game. Obviously, this can be really beneficial to our organization by spending a week coaching some of the best players in college football while we are preparing for the draft. I always say coaching is all about teaching and putting players in the best environment to succeed. I really look at this as an opportunity to help these young men be at their best during a week in which they get to showcase their talents to the entire National Football League.”

“Jackson has a sterling reputation as an innovative offensive mind and is motivated to turn the Browns around,“ Savage said. “So, this is an ideal situation for Cleveland to get a head start on the 2017 NFL Draft. He and his staff will do a great job with these all-star prospects. “

The last time the Browns coached the Reese’s Senior Bowl in 1993, Bill Belichick was the head coach and they had a young defensive assistant named Phil Savage, who is now the Executive Director of the Reese’s Senior Bowl.

Forrest Gregg led the Browns staff in 1977 and legendary coach Paul Brown was a fixture in Mobile in the 50s, coaching in the game eight straight years (1952-1959). The Browns have a 7-3 record when coaching in the Senior Bowl.

Chicago was 3-13 this season and will pick third in the draft. The Bears have coached in the Reese’s Senior Bowl three times, going 2-1 in those games.

“We’re excited for this opportunity to get a hands-on look at some of the top draft-eligible players in the nation,” said Bears head coach John Fox, who in 28 years of coaching in the NFL has never coached in the Senior Bowl. “The Senior Bowl experience will provide our coaches and personnel staff an extended chance to evaluate these players in a one-on-one setting which could prove to be very valuable as we approach the NFL Draft. It’s a great opportunity to spend some extra time with these guys and see how they respond to our staff.”

Chicago last coached in the Senior Bowl in 1996 under head coach Dave Wannstedt, and also coached in 1992 (Mike Ditka) and 1976 (Jack Pardee).

“Fox is a veteran coach that understands the importance of the Reese's Senior Bowl and its impact on a team's draft preparations,” Savage said. “He and his coaches will maximize this week of exposure to some of the nation's top collegiate talent."

Players will arrive by Jan. 23 to begin practices the next day and the 68th Reese’s Senior Bowl is scheduled for January 28, at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile. Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. CT.

Both the NFL Network and ESPN will televise the practices during the week and NFL Network will carry the game live on Saturday.
