Alabama hasn't been able to properly game plan for Deshaun Watson

Alabama has a reputation for not defending dual-threat quarterbacks well under Nick Saban. Part of that problem is that it's nearly impossible to simulate it in practice. Defensive coordinator (for now) Kirby Smart isn't trying to knock on his own QB, but pretty said he'd like to have a QB of his own like that.

Did Smart just tip his hand a little too much? Or is he trying to play some cat and mouse with the media and Clemson? I guess we will see come Monday when the two teams meet in the National Championship Game for an 8:30 p.m. kickoff.
