Clemson is celebrating their National Title victory. Clemson's defense got behind late in the game just like they enjoy doing. Then Deshaun Watson hit Hunter Renfrow 4-fingers deep in the end zone with mere seconds left for the win. Several players sustained groin injuries in the postgame shower room celebration.

I was pleasantly surprised when I heard the score on NPR this morning. Seems 'bama got a little over confident. II figured they were off to another title. I am happy to be wrong!

After the first quarter I saw no need to continue to watch the game.

If 'Bama's main ground threat, Scarborough, had not been
injured, it might have been a very different outcome.
And if Hurt can't learn to pass downfield with any accuracy
or judgement, Saban's going to have to look for another
'Gratz to Clem's Son…heck of a football game…

Basically, the NFL's top AAA farm teams had a championship game.
Now, thank goodness, these student athletes can catch up on their classes.
Boy, that's an awful lot of essays on Roger Bacon and Organic Chemistry lab reports past due!

If you're gonna go "iffing," then the big if that stood out to me is the "if Bama defender #94 could have kept his self-control and not handed Clemson 15 free yards and the entry into the Red Zone." And for that lack of onfield discipline, I blame both the player and the head coach, who also displayed serious lack of self-control from the sidelines. Discipline comes from the top.
But dumb discipline mistakes aside, it was a great game, and Clemson is a deserving champion.

I exercised discipline and let a game between two semi-pro teams pass me by. My son's friend is a Clemson grad, so I was glad for him. And as an MSU alum, anytime Saban falls on his face is good. So I guess that makes it Double Plus Good.

Didn't get to watch it on TV,but did listen to it on the radio. Sounded just as exciting.
