Alabama football getting its motivation for 2017 from graveyard site

Of course, this means war.

Hell hath no fury like an Alabama football team under head coach Nick Saban that did not capture a national championship. With six seconds left in regulation, Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson turned Crimson Tide fans away in sorrow – as Alabama fell 35-31 at Raymond James Stadium (Tampa, Fla.) back on Jan. 9.

While Watson, Mike Williams and others are preparing for the National Football League, members of the Tigers’ personnel aren’t done celebrating the feat. According to a tweet from Clemson beat reporter Zach Lentz, the Tigers have two new additions to its tombstone graveyeard.

One of the headstones commemorates its victory over top-ranked Alabama, and as for the other one, it pays homage to Clemson’s 31-0 win against No. 3-seed Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl.

A few Tide players have retweeted the photo, including sophomore linebacker Mack Wilson.

Spring practice for Alabama starts next Tuesday, and for this year’s group, it is all about finishing the job.
