    Great game

    Very surprised to see Bama lose, but Clemson almost got them last year too.

    He was picked by his own player...who tackled the other receiver...Clemson deserved it.

    LOL, no credibility whatsoever. This thread really proved it unequivocally. No snarky comments about him being an RB now. Two consecutive 400 yard games against the greatest college defense ever.

    Great win by Clemson. I think when Scarborough got hurt, that was a turning point in the game...Alabama didn't look comfortable on offense since then, aside from their final drive.

    If you have a dynamic, mobile QB that can throw the ball down the field, then you can score on Alabama. That has consistently been the weakness of Saban's defenses over the years.

    Well of course you don't have any credibility whatsoever, but you managed to be right for the first time, keep that up and who knows? One day you might be taken just a little bit seriously. You still have a long way to go, but maybe you can turn it all around!

    With all due respect to the thunder and power of Derrick Henry and the athleticism and quickness of Christian McCaffrey, it was a complete joke Deshaun Watson was 3rd in the Heisman last year. He carried that team on his back and was clearly the best college player in America.

    This year, he slipped a bit but got the ultimate prize in the end. He owned Alabama's D two years in a row.

    Ragnar Lothbrock (Boulware) with the awesome speech and well-deserved DPOG.

    Are you blind? It was a clear pick play. Number 3 clearly contacted the Bama DB first. Hell, even Deshaun said it was a pick play they practiced for. And that wasn't even their first TD off a pick play in the game...they had two.

    Again, pick plays are trash IMO. It's ingenius because it's a loophole in the way the refs have to call it; I'd just rather see skill win out on those battles. Basically how the Cheatriots' receivers get open all the time.

    Can you just shut up for once and not be toxic to a great thread?
