Bama defense completely collapsed. 21 points allowed in the 4th

Texted my buddy when Clemson had 14 late in the third that they'd get over 30. Glad I didn't look stupid but good game. Bamas lack of offense finally bit them.

Watson put up 75 points on Alabama in 2 games. I'll bet no SEC QB, even those who may have faced them 3 times, has done that in the Saban era.

 

EDIT: I'll take that back....Chad Kelly put up 86 on them in 2 games.

I watched some tape on Kelly. His WRs bailed him out a ton in that 2015 game. I don't know how Bama gave up so many points because they batted down about a dozen of his passes at the line. More of a team effort than Kelly. He's a fun QB to watch though. Throws a ridiculous fastball that probably breaks fingers. (Also Jim Kelly's nephew for those that didn't know).

 

But Watson did it all tonight. Through the air, on the ground. Superb.

A lot. Mostly veterans related. But several food drives and other work. But I hate talking about it or pounding my chest about it. 

 

That used to be the American Ethic:  don't blow your own horn about doing good things.

 

But that was back when America concentrated on actually being great... sadly, that got replaced by people being greedy and yelling "USA... USA... USA" at the top of their lungs...

Watson threw a lot of exactly-right passes... and deserves all the hype he's gonna get... but you're right, Bama giving up 21 in the 4th is really the big story...

This year's Clemson team beat schools that were the last 7 (!!) National Champions...

Off the top of my head...

 

2009 Alabama

2010 Auburn

2011 Alabama

2012 Alabama

2013 FSU

2014 OSU

2015 Alabama

 

Cool stat. You'd have to look hard to find someone that has done that before in CFB.

2017, here we go!

 

ESPN: Alabama, Florida State lead way-too-early 2017 Top 25

 

EDIT: Terps fans might not want to look at that. They play 5 teams total in these rankings, and 4 of them in the Top 12.

I wish Dabo would just shut up about how it was God that did it...

That is way too early. They don't have Notre Dame in there yet. It's not the official rankings until the overrated Irish are listed in the top 15. It's tradition.

Don't they all say that? After all, God is pretty damn awesome....I don't think He's ever backed the losing team.

What a great football game. Good to see even Alabama's defense choke in the 4th just as the Ravens did.

Big fan of Dabo.  Happy to see him get one at Clemson, I'm thinking that was probably his best shot for a while.

 

Still think the way Saban left the Dolphins was lousy, but he seems to have been a pretty standup guy at Alabama.  I believe I saw that they're already the odds-on favorites for next as well.  Pretty amazing what he's done there.

Clemson and Bama have put on 2 terrific Championship games.

Clemson wore down the Alabama defense and their stars came through late
