Default National writer on why Clemson, Alabama should be scared

From ESPN Radio College Sports Sunday. Barrett Sallee

"That is why they are scared. Because the Ohio State Buckeyes are coming to town. They kick their season off on Saturday. The return of the Big Ten. So while Clemson and Alabama have had all of their fun over the last month, month and a half. Now things are getting real because Ohio State might just prove that they are the best team in the country over the next two months."

Someone needs to tell him that Clemson not Bama are afraid of the best team money can buy. They better worry about staying covid free for the next 2 months. One little slip, and it's over for them

Why should Clemson be afraid of a team they have never lost to?

Okay! I don't know why they should be afraid.

Sports media are like traditional news media. They can say stupid things or tell a bold-faced lie and they are seldom called on it.

I heard that. And I heard the cohost Andy Staples quickly dismiss it. I'm not sure if Sallee was being tongue-in-cheek or if he was serious.
Sallee was all over Ohio State yesterday: Big10 is starting, teams should be scared... Justin Fields should be in the Heisman conversation...

I don't think that quote will age well. Wouldn't mind playing them in the first round, but after that comment, would love to see them have to go through Bama and then play us if they somehow beat Bama.

I do think OSU will be a playoff team, maybe the 2nd best in the country behind us. With Bama's problems on D and OSU's promising offensive firepower, I think they would beat Bama. I might change my mind in a few weeks after seeing them, but on paper, they're probably the best team that matches up with us. I'd love to see a Clemson v OSU championship in Miami. We'll be 5-0 after that meeting, though... we ain't scared of nobody.

Not worried about Ohio St. Their defense will take a step back and the RB left. It wont be some crazy drop-off, but we're not losing to Ohio St.

I think Ohio St will make the playoff, but Clemson isn't losing to anyone this year unless we have a significant injury.

That's pretty funny. It's a joke, right?
