NCAA Football: Sugar Bowl-Alabama vs Clemson
Guess what? Clemson is not a dark horse.
Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Wes and Brad are honored to welcome the man, the myth, and the legend, Phil Steele on to the show to discuss all aspects of Alabama in 2018. We also dive into the challenge that Auburn and Mississippi State may present Alabama in the West, the players the top teams in the SEC cannot afford to lose, the surprise teams to make the playoffs, and coaches that are not coaching in D-1 that may soon be a D-1 head coach again.

We cannot thank Phil enough for such a great interview with the guys and we cannot thank those of you who suggested questions for this interview.
