    Clemson: Kelly Bryant. Bryant is going to have to hit a couple deep balls to keep the Bama defense honest. Bryant is still a big question mark for me.

    Alabama: Bo Scarbrough. He's the best running back on the team and his physicality will be needed. I don't think Jalen Hurts can win this game on his own.

    Oklahoma: Rodney Anderson. I'm not taking into account the allegations that came out a week ago, because I haven't heard anything else since. But if he plays and OU can establish a running game its game over for Georgia.

    Georgia: Deandre Swift. This one is a little off the wall because he 3rd on the depth chart, but DeAndre Swift might be the best back on Georgias team. It's not any secret that Georgia is going to try to run it down OU's throat. But if Swift can spell Chubb and Michel and break off a huge run or two like he didn't in the SEC Championship I think this is Georgias best case scenario.

    I think we know what we are going to get from 3 of those guys. I have a pretty good idea of how Mayfield, Hurts, and Fromm are going to play. It will take more than those guys playing well to win for each team.

    Couldn't disagree with you more about Scarborough. Harris runs the ball much better. And if Saban and Dabol don't commit the giving him the ball at least 15 times we won't win. Truth be told Bo might be the 3rd best running back on this team. Josh Jacobs is also more efficient.

    I know he hasn't been the same guy this year that he was at the end of last year, but I like how he played in big games last year and I think if he can bust through with a couple huge runs like the playoffs last year it puts Bama in a good spot.

    He did do a good job for us last year. He can be really good for us still. I just think we are gonna have a hard time blocking that front four of Clemson...they are nasty up front.

    Which is why I think a more physical back like Scarbrough is necessary in this game.
