Somebody tell me, when was the last time that Alabama was held scoreless in a Second Half of a game..?

Alabama's last points in this game were @ 14:18 in the 2cnd quarter, a field goal on Clemson's 7 yard line.

Clemson just absolutely shut Bama down in the red zone, Between the 5 & goal. Simply Amazing.

When Alabama's running backs cannot push forward for 1 yard around the goal line, you know there is some strength in the middle of your line.

Dabo beat Saban all over the turf tonight.

Clemson scored combined 74-19 against #1 and # 3. You won't here that from Finebaum.

Two great quarterbacks, receivers that are among the best out there...and Clemson's D line is terrific.


Nothing was learned from this game. Everyone's analysis is correct. This game was a product of an extended journey to see the Wizzard. They didn't play for a month, then played a game a week and half ago and then on a Monday night, starting at 5:00 PM on the West Coast where the nearest school was 2500 miles away and it was 8:00 PM on a work night they played a game where the VAST majority of the country has forgotten college football. Those that did watch had to listen to ESPN announcers prattle more than I do about nothing of which I am the resident authority.

Put this game on New Year's Day and the whole country would be there. They were giving away tickets tonight. Mr. Billybud may think this was a well-played game and was great, whatever he said, but it wasn't.

Mean Gene Okerman and Super Dave Osbourne dying this past week was bigger news than tonight's game. May all three RIP.

Winning the last 2 games vs undefeated teams, to become the first team since the early 1900's to win 15 games in a single season.

Has anyone else watched the post game press conferences?

Alabama players & Saban prattled on about not playing smart, shooting themselves in the foot and Clemson taking advantage of Alabama's mistakes.

Tua actually said, "They weren't really doing anything to beat us. We were just killing ourselves, shooting ourselves in the foot."

It all feels a bit too political. They are playing up to the cameras for recruitment purposes.

Clemson beat them ... Not accidentally ... Out Right.

Clemson was absolutely the better team. Alabama is making excuses.

Excuses won't change the score board. Bama got embarrassed, and aren't giving Clemson the credit for winning.

Classless.

Who did steal the trophy? Dr. Pepper was always my idol. Appointments only at 10, 2, and 4. The remedy. Prune Juice.

Saban did not appear to be a great coach when things were not going his way. Not too good when the script was not followed.

Les Miles was the culprit.

As you passively aggressively chant SEC, we will recognize that the ACC is their only worthy opponent and give you full accolades that your representative is all you want it to be.

In a National Poll, I personally conducted, .07% of the people care. I am one of the .07%.

On a more enlightening subject, the PAC 12. .0022% care. Talk about a conference in disarray. Another survey, which I assure you I did NOT take, of all PAC 12 Presidents & Athletic Directors there are a total of three testicles.

And that's my report.

The B10 has Delaney and which means no testicles.

donovan....you are so completely eaten up by anti SEC feelings that you can't recognize irony...

the irony that two storied SEC coaches are just parodies in ads....(Les Miles and the Old Ball Coach, Spurrier)..My SEC chant is always tongue in cheek.

Passive aggressive? Maybe. But not a bat crap crazy dog charging to the end of the chain at any imagined sound.
