Default David Pollack says Ohio State will beat Clemson and here is why

This from The College Football Podcast with Herbie & Pollack.

"One team has Chase Young and one team doesn’t. I mean, it is as simple as that to me," the ESPN analyst said.

"But the consistent pass rush and then secondary with Okudah, Arnette and Wade, like it is filthy in the backend," he continued. "Now, I have question marks about all teams and I could go into all of that, but in the grand scheme, Chase Young can get to quarterbacks. Chase Young just does not get there and get a piece of people. He is 6-5 with that athleticism and he gets quarterbacks to the ground.

"He does not allow plays to extend. He is just going to continue to get on them and make things happen. I favor Ohio State in that matchup."

I will combat that with depth and experience. We will rotate like we have all year and wear out OSU. This game goes right into the 4th quarter and Clemson wins by 2 scores.

One team has Brent Venables and one team doesn't. I mean, it's as simple as that to me.

Did Bama not have the greatest DT in the history of college football last year. How did that work out for them in that game.

“I think we’re going to have a shootout,” Pollack said. “A lot of fun and a lot of points. In the end, one team has 92 and one team doesn’t. I think Quinnen Williams on the inside can disrupt the game like no one’s business. He’ll be all over Trevor Lawrence and force him to make mistakes. I have Alabama.”

Clemson has the biggest wildcard in their favor... They have been there AND have won at that level. All the pressure is on OSU to show they belong.

Everyone has an opinion. From what I have seen, the experts are are right/wrong about the same amount as the general public who follow college football

Pollack loves him some DL. It is by far the most important position to him being a former DL. He is of course wrong, but he wouldn't be an ESPN analyst if the job performance was measured by accuracy.

Chase Young is twice the threat that Williams was.

This was discussed on the radio this morning.

Is this OSU defense better than the 2015 or 2016 Alabama defense?

Is this Clemson offense better than the 2015 or 2016 Clemson offense.

Because we put up 41 and 35 points on those two defenses.

Now ask yourself, do you think our defense will allow more than 35 points to OSU's offense.

Clemson win's this by 2 scores.

What idiot would pick any secondary against our wide receivers?? Ohio State does not have the secondary to stop our passing game. No one does. Bama has had a much better secondary every year we faced then than Ohio St does this year and we torched them.

Chase Young is great, but we had four studs last year that our OL practiced against every day. This DL isn’t Bamas from years gone by, they just have one great DE.
