    I credit Clemson's defense. Bama was moving on them effectively in the first half, but the Tigers made some effective halftime adjustments and all but forced Bama into being one-dimensional in the second half, resulting in multiple three-and-outs. Doesn't matter how good Bama's defense is - if you keep them on the field too long, they get worn down and vulnerable.

    Back at the last Clemson championship, it was played over the holiday break and nobody had to miss school the next day. I remember being allowed to stay up and watch that whole game with my dad.

    I'd like to offer my house as a "safe house" for the Bama coeds.

    I was 10 at the time. I actually wanted Clemson to win that game and defeat the evil Nebraskans; wasn't yet to the point where my disdain for Tater-hood overrode my pride in my state.

    I learned quickly over the next year just how much of a PITA those folks could be

    I didn't see the first one but the last td was an illegal pick. Ref should have had the balls to call that. That was way too easy. Oh well I won't lose any sleep

    don't watch much CFB but that was a hell of a game, thought there were a bit too many "pick" plays that weren't called but certainly an entertaining ballgame

    Great game, I really thought Clemson had Clempson the 1st half and most likely the game away. Bama couldn't get anything going on offense and their 3rd down conversion killed any chance. Both teams fought hard in the trenches and both teams looked like NC winners. Clemson has better depth and it showed in the 4th quarter.

    It's not an illegal pick if the refs don't call it. Did the refs call several holding penalties during the entire game? Damn there were several PI's that should have been called, but apparently the refs didn't think they were penalties. The game is over and we can't go back and dissect every play, to see if it was a possible penalty,
