  • If Saban wins his 6th title he might retire because Ohio State has a very young coach Oklahoma has a 37 year old coach and Florida and Texas AM so these teams are back and I mean back on top. Bama Clemson are through after this year for awhile. But when you become a dynasty and have won as many titles as these schools have everything else is just icing on a big cake.

  • Mac Jones has had a great year but he isn't a great qb

    • @Austin your very right. I do think he's a good qb but I tend to not be to high or low until at least 2 years in the league

    • @Keyon Williamson you’re right, time will tell. But I believe a lot of parts of his game set him up to be successful. He’s outstanding at identifying coverages and letting plays develop

    • @Austin stats are not everything. Plenty of great statistical qbs who washed out

    • You realize he had the highest QBR ever recorded since the metric was invented correct?

  • Pollack is spot on. OSU definitely needs at least 40 to have a chance to win because that secondary for OSU is going to get killed

  • 42-35

  • So Ohio state has to score over 40 but yet Bama only scored 31 on Notre dame.

    • Did you watch the game? Alabama coasted after ND decided to punt when the score was 21-7. Let’s not pretend as if ND slowed Bama down at all.

  • Ohio State will have to put up at least 40 to win, but so will Alabama. Both offenses are really good and both defenses are not so good

  • its not about beating their offense with your defense, its about keeping up with their offense

  • Can't wait for the Natty !! ROLL TIDE ROLL !! 🐘🐘🐘

  • O H!

  • This is sounding more and more like 2014/15, same Alabama is unbeatable hype. Same OSU is outclassed hype How did that turn out? How does that old saying go? Pride goeth before a fall?

    • Welcome to the year 2021.

    • Dude. Blake Sims was Bamas QB that year and they lost to ole miss. You are absolutely insane if you think the 2014 Bama team is even comparable to this 2020 team. That 2014 team was probably in the top 5 worst Saban teams.

    • The problem is, you’re not catching nick off guard twice! Just like Clemson thought they can walk all over Ohio state this year

  • Alabama only scored 31 against Notre Dame Notre Dame sucks

  • GO BAMA

  • Roll tide we back too claim what's ours 💪💪💪

  • 40 🤔no my friend bama puts 40 up for breakfast try 60

  • I like how all they talk about is Ohio State, Bama is the one playing with the “us against the world” mentality bcuz in reality it is and always has been for the past 10+ years. I’ve never seen a Bama team with so much focus in a season. Saban built this program on another level.

    • How can Bama have the "us vs the world" mentality when everyone is talking about them, ranked #1 by all, even given the Heisman TROPHY and other Trophies. So, Bama can't play that card. The Bucks situation in the past 5 months is a whole new mentality. They've been called all kind of names from Lazy to Slow or Slow starter, to can't play Juggernaut and everytime they reply to that, the bar goes higher. For the Buckeyes, after every win, the bar is reset. Everytime and all the way here. You can start from the Indiana's game. They won't even give OSU the due credit agaist Bama even after some Clemsoning. Well, at least the hype has been true so far.

    • All they talk about is OSU? pff. Give me a break.

  • Why do all these guys constantly suck on the SEC sack. WE beat Bama last time and ironically they had the exact same spread as this year...............

    • Bit different outcome 😬

  • I got Bama 28-24

    • @Street speed facts

    • 28-24? Lol that’s how much Alabama will score combine!

  • Y’all do realize that Ohio State’s offense has been just about as prolific and unstoppable as Alabama’s, right? And that’s with two games where they lost huge chunks of their offensive starters. I agree, stopping Bama’s offense is a daunting task - but so is stopping Ohio State.

    • Ohio State has played half the amount of games as everyone else

  • Roll tide

  • *Garrett Wilson is gonna have himself a day against that Bama secondary. Surtain will be too busy going at it with Olave.*

    • @ryanrobin12 That’s what I’m thinking too. The Secondary is definitely OSUs weakest unit which will be playing against Alabama’s strongest unit. That’s without Waddle. With Waddle I can only imagine how bad it’s gonna get.

    • Smith is bad enough but if Jaylen Waddle is in, OSU might not even look like they even have a secondary

    • That may very well be true, but I’d rather be Alabama’s Defensive coordinator than Ohio States right.

  • I think they will but I don't believe that they will have to.

  • I hope Bama wins but we'll see.

  • David Pollack is HOT!! Keep up the workouts David!

  • Alabama 49 Ohio state 28

  • Go buckeyes 🔥🔥🔥🔥

  • Pollack is exactly right about Buckeyes needing at least 40 and I think there is a very strong chance they will score at least that amount. Buckeyes offense may be the most explosive in the history of the program. They're absolutely loaded in every offensive phase and if Field's injury heals enough to where he's comfortable tucking it and running then this is yet another factor for Bama's D to contend with.

  • I dont see scoring 40 as a problem. Lowly overrated weak florida with 4 losses put up 42 against bama. Yeah we good.

    • You sure y’all are good?

    • Looks like I was right

    • 😂😂 Florida played Bama 3x better than Ohio State did, what a joke

    • OSU fans are gonna be pretty disappointed...

    • @Devonta Servance Ohio State only scored 22 against NW.

  • Ok well they scored 49 against a better defense, so...

    • Dude what are you talking about clemson defense was trash this season. ND put 47 points on them this season. ND don't have no offense. Bama defense is way better than clemson. ND only put up 14 points when they face us in rose bowl. And btw one of those touchdowns really didn't count because they scored in garbage time. OSU is facing a way better defense.

  • Jones over fields? What is this guy smoking

    • He is smoking some crack or something.........anybody with a real football eye knows that Justin had more fire power than Mac. Mac is a great qb .......but he isn't in Justins class...word

    • From a buckeye fan. Jones is just more consistent. But fields is playing great. It’s honestly a toss up

    • Justin is awesome however he still occasionally makes boneheaded decisions by forcing passes.

  • Didn't David Polluck say, "Bama wasn't winning the National Championship".

    • Sometimes people do smoke or drink while making these picks

  • It is 2014 all over again, huge underdogs in both playoff games.

    • 7 points makes you a huge underdog? Tf are you on?

    • @Jimmy C ROLL TIDE🐘

    • Nope it's 2021 and the Tide is gonna roll to #18.

    • its just a touchdown guy calm down

  • They need to have the same fire they had when they played clemson ..ohio state definitely has the talent and fields is a nightmare for bama ...but alabama's def is better than clemson and you are not gonna cover smith and get past that oline very easily

  • Funny thing is Ohio State has 50 in them! Bamas QB is suspect

    • @Austin you right Ohio State SUCKED!

    • They didn’t even have half of 50 in them 😂

    • @Keegan nichols who named you? The milk man

    • Classic entitled generation comment! You are probably a bully to I bet you mama is proud of you

    • 😂

  • Please ESPCNN continue hyping Alabama so the tears will roll harder come Monday night. Roll Tears Roll!!!

    • 🤧

    • Roll tears indeed, tears of joy for Bama and tears for yourself for watching Bama win another natty.

    • Stupid lol

  • Fields just has a hip pointer. They usually heal in a week

    • @Nithin Naikar 👍

    • @Jimmy C No excuses. Good luck!

    • Good, so no excuses?

    • I had 1 in high-school, wrestling... lasted a month... they hurt more than people realize...

  • Same could be said for Alabama

  • In before OSU hangs 50 on Bama. 56-42 OSU.

    • Well how do you feel

    • @kxnkygbproof lmao how does what he said make him a coward? He asked what u were smoking a day before the game even started too so 🤷‍♀️

    • @It’s me you waited till bama was up 4 scores to talk shirt. You’re a coward.

    • Like I said tf are you smoking so I know what to avoid?

    • Man you couldn’t have been more wrong

  • Teams Need To score 40 JUST TO BEAT OSU Lol

  • Didn't this guy, and everyone else say Clemson would be too much for Ohio State to handle?

    • They forgot to mention the motivation the players had, Ohio state wanted revenge

  • I hope this game reaches 100+ points because that would be very fun to watch.

  • People hate the playoff but the Natty games have been lit in them. Hope we get goody🔥

  • I called and told em 50!!! Go Bucks

    • How did you enjoy your trip back from the fantasy world to the real world? Was it fun?

    • Hahahahaha

    • You have a few more days to enjoy the fantasy world you're living in lol

  • 1:20 😂😂😂😂

  • OSU scored 49 even thou they kinda took there foot off the gas in the 2nd half in the last game

    • Alabama had 52 points with 13 minutes to go in the 4th.

    • No they did not take their foot of the gas, they wanted revenge, only difference is that Justin fields was hurt, that is why it seemed that way, but no, Ohio state wanted Clemson gone, never took their foot off the gas

  • I have a hard time believing Ohio State is the underdog - in any game.

    • @QUIENSOY yea osu hasn't had enough games to get fleshed out, as an Osu fan I just hope Mondays game is a good one.

    • @Danny DNA Bruh idk where you got that info, but its wrong. Under Urban it happened 3 times; VT, Iowa, & Purdue. 2011 doesn't really count to us Buckeyes. Urban took basically that same team and went 12-0 with them the next year. All of the other losses OSU has had in the past decade have been from teams that finished in the AP top 10. OSU also has maintained the highest win percentage of any program over that time period. 😤

    • I'll post on this one too. Well, its because in the last 10 years, Ohio state has lost to an unranked opponent 6 of those 10 years.

    • There is reason young fan, Alabama is the most consistent team, Ohio state has been Weird, no one truly knows

    • Let em talk. It's better this way 🙂.

  • They can do it, Alabama's defense has appeared ordinary, both this year and last.

    • Happy natty day to yall tho, just hope it’s a close game. If could go either way

    • @ryanrobin12 I also still love u bro, but just use more facts next time

    • @College Football Frenzy but I still love you, brother 🤛🏻

    • @ryanrobin12 lmao what? I’m crazy for going to the exact same website you told me to go to, and then telling you that Clemson was ahead of bama and defense. All I see is an ignorant bama fan. I’m not crazy for stating facts

    • @College Football Frenzy you are truly a crazy person. Legitimately crazy.

  • I agree 1st team to 40 Wins.

  • It wasn't an "amazing hit" It was one of the dirtiest spears I've ever seen.

    • @It’s me I think right about the time people started paralyzing themselves from the neck down.

    • When did everyone get so soft?

    • You can't make a tackle by using your helmet as a weapon. It is a rule not to just protect the person being hit but the person doing the hitting that is how too many neck injuries have happened. Nick Bonaconti son playing college ball hit nearly exactly like that was paralyzed instantly from the neck down.

    • @Vincent Yerardi Just like how Lawrence ducked his head into Shaun Wade

    • @Danny DNA You can't lead with your shoulder and not with your head? Have you ever actually played football. This statement seems to indicate that you have not. In which case, why are you making statements about a topic you don't understand? When you break down to make a tackle, you keep your eyes up, and you let your eyes drive through the tackle. If you do that, it is impossible to lead with the crown of your helmet as Skalski did and you claim is unavoidable.

  • O-H !!!!!!!!!!

  • Hard to do without Lane Kiffin. Hotty Toddy

    • @Colin Clifton but I hope we beat LSU and auburn and Texas a and m next season too I believe Lane Kiffin is taking ole miss in the right direction

    • @Ty Scott I with you on upset, but natty is still a couple out. I think if Otis Reece had played versus Bama, it would have been much closer. I can't believe Greg Stanky didn't let him play till the season was over. He's such a db.

    • @Frederick Graves well Alabama is my team rival so yes I’m going to thank about beating them

    • @Ty Scott is that all yall think about is Bama Lol

    • Yet Bamas averaging an all time high in points at 49 with Sark.

  • Notre dame didn't have to score over 40 to win

    • @Avi bama defense constricted OSU pal

    • @Frederick Graves and you have no idea how advanced stats work. Saban didn't take his foot off the gas the entire game did he? Believe what you want, though.

    • @Avi look dude obviously you never watched Bama football or Payed attention to how Nick Saban operates. Its simple once the machine (Alabama) see's that its opponent is inferior then they basically take their foot off the gas and put back ups in. No need to run up the score when your opponent is inferior. Basically a lion playing with a mouse

    • @Beau Cutright ND had an 8 minute TD in the first quarter, ffs. I'm 100% sure this was Saban's plan. Planned it all along to let ND control the ball for 8 minutes and score at the end of it! Bama didn't hold ND to a 3 and out even ONE time. Seriously? This is the defense OSU is supposed to be afraid of?

    • @Beau Cutright because saban is that type of coach, save the best for last

  • I AGRE OHIO STATE 49-42

    • 45- 28 Bama

    • @Keegan nichols YOU TALKING ABOUT ME

    • @QUIENSOY YES WE SHOULD

    • Possibly, but not possibly, we shall see

  • Go Buckeyes

  • Alabama hasn’t even played their A game yet. Ohio state just did and beat Clemson. Their A game cannot beat bama A game. Ohio state was satisfied beating Clemson finally! Ohio state will get a wake up call big time. Enjoy your Clemson victory.

    • @Ga boy scratch off 1234 😂😂😂 Bama just embarrassed OSU, Florida played Bama 3x better than OSU could imagine.

    • @Zach DaCosta They had all their players besides trask out you mean lol

    • @Ga boy scratch off 1234 hmm, u were motivated indeed, Alabama has not shown its cards, underestimating u shall not do, Alabama is not something u can underestimate

    • @bald So In the building o you definitely going to see me.

    • @Zach DaCosta I saw a depleted Clemson team in the 4th quarter. I stated clearly,this was a game Ohio state had a chip on their shoulders. 0-4 against Clemson. They had enough. They were pumped. They played their A game and it showed. They won’t against bama and bama will show up with their A game. Maybe,a few 3 and outs,a few turnovers and some things bounce their way and Ohio state will make the most of it. I love the coach. He’s one of my favorite. He’s a true professional and will always have Ohio state in the hunt. I just don’t see them matching up well against bama. 44-21

  • Anybody know why the end screen is the CFP all though the Semifinals are over?!

  • Did they not do thst against Clemson? Yes Alabama is good, but they’re not unbeatable

    • @Avi how are those stats working out for you buddy.

    • Nobody seems to remember what happened last time Bama was declared National Champs before they played the game **cough** 44-16

    • @Avi for one comparing two different teams based on how they played another team is not a good measurement ..and two alabama let the foot off the pedal before the half even ended so

    • @Avi saban made sure to win, not to dominate, saban needs to make sure everything is ready, anything can go, it is like indiana, Ohio state won 42-35 or something, but ole miss also won, about the same score, see? Just games dude, plus unlike Clemson, Alabama never gave them the lead

    • Funny thing, when you compare the advanced box score of Bama vs ND and Clemson vs ND.... Clemson actually outperformed Bama in over 90% of the advanced metrics... on both offense and defense. Fact is, although the media are making out Bama to be unstoppable... they seem to be not much better than Clemson, if at all.

  • Let's go Ohio State

    • @Andrew Smith noooooo, dude ur running back is not najee Harris, use confusing plays and choose the best option, like saban does

    • @Andrew Smith L

    • Run the ball the entire game, Go Buckeyes!

    • OSK

  • 3rd

  • I like Michigan So let’s go bama

    • michigan sucks

    • I’m an Appalachian State fan which would of beat you or your bowl opponent last year. It would of been the second time beating your team. The powers that be didn’t want Alabama embarrassed as you Michigan fans still are at the greatest upset of all time. Ohio State is the better team plus they’re firing on all cylinders. I bet the Buckeyes are happy your coach is getting a five year contract extension. Go Blue 😂🤣😂

  • First
