Beware of a Clemson like end vs FSU...says, Danny Sheridan...

on Saturday, June 10, 2017

Crimson Tide Football:

Alabama's season-opening game with Florida State could end the same way as the Tide's loss to Clemson, according to Danny Sheridan.

The odds-maker also believes Auburn coach Gus Malzahn should be gone if he doesn't beat Nick Saban's Crimson Tide this upcoming season.

Sheridan covered those topics and more during an appearance on The Paul Finebaum Show on Thursday.

The Tide, which is coming off a College Football Playoff National Championship loss to Clemson, faces Florida State in a potential top-5 matchup to kick off the season.

"I think I said in February, Alabama would be about a 4-point favorite," Sheridan explained. I still see that.

"My thought is there is no question Alabama is well coached and has great athletes. They can do whatever they want, but, as a handicapper, if they rush four men like they did against Clemson, they are going to have the same result against Florida State." ...

"When Alabama plays a dual-threat quarterback, Deondre Francois, a guy like that, I always pick the underdog. The reason is you can't rush four."

Sheridan picked Clemson against Alabama in the past two national title games, he said, because "you can't have any dual-threat quarterback have all day."

With that said, Sheridan said he has Alabama and Ohio State as the favorites to win the national championship, saying they have "good schedules to win 11 or 12 games."

"After that, you have a little bit of a drop off," he explained.

He said he has Florida State winning 10 to 11 games, and Southern Cal and Michigan looking at 9 or 10 games."
