Two Coaches Did Not Vote Alabama In As No. 1 in Final Pool

If you have watched any college football at all this season, or know of the legacy of Nick Saban, you probably would have guessed Alabama to be the shoo-in for No. 1 in the final Coaches Pool. However, two coaches cast their vote for another 13-0 team to claim that spot. Those votes went to Clemson.  Who picked the Tigers over the Crimson Tide? Well, head coach of Pittsburgh, Pat Narduzzi, who just lost to Dabo Swinney 42-10 in the ACC Championship Game, and, Nick Saban himself. Regardless of the reason, the two votes weren’t nearly enough to overthrow the resounding 62 first-place votes Saban’s Alabama team received.  Why do you think Saban voted for Clemson? Was it a nod to another great year by Swinney’s team? Or, is Saban down about the fashion in which his team won over Georgia on Saturday?
