Definitely a memorable post-game moment.... Christian Wilkins gives Dabo Swinney a wet willie on national TV.....

Now Nick Saban's perpetual expression, that of a joyless man who just swallowed owl shit, actually holds water.

Crimson Died.

Tprice, I still think TL will become even better than DW, and he's well on his way.

No way they would have won tonight if KB was still quarterback.

My son has been telling me this all along, even had a Clemson coach I know tell me TL is as special IF NOT MORE than DW (which is was hard for me to imagine ). Personally I just feel we are very lucky to have 2 QB’s of the talent level of DW and TL in such a short period of time

LOVE KB but I agree with you, I always thought KB would move to WR or even SS at Clemson but he stuck with QB. Wish him nothing but the best and completely understand his decision

Wish KB all the best as well, never held his decision to leave against him. For his own good, I wish he would consider moving to another position as I've heard he has NFL aspirations but there is NO way he will make it to the next level as a QB.

I am a little confused over all the “doom and gloom” for Bama from some folks right now. I mean HELL they only lost ONE FREAKING GAME and it was the NC game

Damn they will be right back in it next year and the next year

Same here, just do not see him being a NFL QB. Could be wrong but to me he should move to WR

Same media bs you read every day. They just want to create a place that will sell ads

I recorded the game and rewatched it. Bamas lack of defensive depth in the line and linebackers really showed. Clemson’s receivers played a hell of a game.
Some of the catches they made were really well covered by Bama DBs, and some of the balls by Lawrence were off target, yet those guys still made the catch.
I think Mike Locksley had mentally checked out to Maryland. I really can’t explain his play calls. Especially in the second half.
The mistakes Tua made, were partially great scheme from Venables(great job there), partly on Tua also.
But Locksley really putting the offense in questionable calls was a lot of that.
Box score yardage and such pretty even. As Saban said, third down was an issue(Mike Locksley VS Brett Venables).
Clemsons secondary played really well. D line got pushed around pretty much all night save for a few passing plays, Clemson’s linebackers did well on cleanup.

If if the two teams played again tomorrow, The outcome could just easily be reversed.

But no second chances! Hope we meet again next year!

I honestly do as well. LOVE playing Bama (win some lose some but time for a best 3 out 5 ��)

Also I for one really respect Saban and the job he has done there, I PITY the poor soul that has balls to follow him at Bama . Gonna be worse the following Bear

Cool post I saw from one of my friends about Trevor Lawrence. He hit a target at a mile this week at The Clinton House Plantation. Pretty cool place if you ever get the chance to go. Roughly 3,000 acres right off of I26 in Clinton SC, near the junction of I26 and I385. This is my home town. They have numerous ranges, sporting clays, various wing shooting, and a lot of hunting opportunities. Ranges include a 6 lane 1,000 yard range, and a 1 mile lane. I grew up with the general manager Mike Johnson, and also attended Clemson with him. And just for fun, a stab at USuC.

Make of that what you will.

Yep, FIRST QB in over 40 yrs to beat TWO TOP 5 teams in one seasons by more than 21pts each and this was done by a True Freshman
