When I entered Alabama's locker room after the Tide's difficult, last-second loss to Clemson, it was one of the most heartbreaking scenes I have witnessed in my career.
Frankly, while I'm happy for Clemson players and fans, it wasn't easy to see kids I have covered so closely all season in so much pain.
Some of those kids were seeing failure for the first time, and while that might be something of a luxury, it can also be dangerous. When you miss a goal on a stage so large, in a manner so agonizing, it can cause the bigger picture to become a little ... less clear.
As someone whose job is to look at the big picture, I wanted to remind fans and players of what was accomplished this season. This video was all I could think to make to do that, and I hope it resonates..
