John Parker Wilson Looks Back at Alabama’s Loss to Clemson [Audio]
Nearly a week removed from narrowly missing their second straight national championship, opinions still came in on Alabama’s 35-31 loss in Tampa.
A former Alabama quarterback looked back on the Crimson Tide’s near miss against the Clemson Tigers during his Friday morning appearance on The Gary Harris Show.
John Parker Wilson offered his assessment on Alabama’s 2016 season including the performance of true freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts.
Looking back at the game, Wilson highlighted Clemson’s ability as a team including quarterback Deshaun Watson as areas that concerned him going into the national championship game.
The former Alabama quarterback examined various factors that affected the outcome of the game including the amount of time Alabama’s offense spent on the field, Deshaun Watson’s effectiveness for Clemson and Alabama’s inability to produce first downs in the second half.
Wilson also dissected the performance of Jalen Hurts against Clemson and his opinion of Hurts’ future as Alabama’s starting quarterback.
Alabama’s starting quarterback from 2006-2008 later analyzed how Clemson learned from last year’s loss to the Crimson Tide and how they used that game to prepare themselves for the 2016 season.
