LSU and Auburn have had recent success, i.e., NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS. Of course they can still recruit even against Alabama. What can we show recruits that we've done? Win 11 games and get really excited about it?

I dont know Dabo and his staff and motivation so this is wild speculation, but I think it takes more effort and drive now to sustain than to build.

But I also dont really see how this singular game has a huge impact on SC. Clemson has been nationally relevant for years and recruiting at a high level for longer. This isnt anything new.
I agree it will be a challenge. However, Dabo is young and they have some good recruits in the pipeline. I think he will like the challenge to try and get back to the CFP in 2018 or 2019. He can start immediately adding the NC to the Clemson brand RE recruiting.

Neither Kiffin nor Sark had a passing game. Clemson did the same thing they did against Ohio State which had no passing game. I love a power running game but you got to have balance.

Let's face it, Bama's offense wasn't great. With a low scoring first half, that was exactly what Bama needed to win this game. However, once Clemson's offense got going and it became a higher scoring game, this was in Clemson's favor. Bama was never going to outscore Clemson in a shootout. Bama was built on defense and once Clemson started shredding that defense, everything favored the Tigers. This was the type of game they needed to win.

I wish we ran some form of Clemson's offense. All the motion they run on offense is difficult to stop.

Its the type of players that made that offense difficult to stop. Watson is one of those special players like Tebow and Newton. I believe that Williams turned out to be a better WR than Hopkins and Watkins. The rest of the offense is just a group that was a perfect match at the perfect time. If you look at Clemson pre-Watson, they were good but never this good. Clemson has done an excellent job in recruiting skill players but the last two years is the first time this offense has proven to be un-matched.

Disagree if you Derrick Henry or Bo Scarborough playing all game you can be Bama and get it done.

I think Bo getting hurt last night really took away from Bama's running game. It was nearly non-existent other than Hurts long QB scramble to TD.

I think his injury and Bama not getting that TD on the Gallman fumble really played a factor in the game.

Nail on the head. You can't show up to the national championship game one-dimensional and expect to beat a team like Clemson put together this season. With all of the 5* talent on Alabama's team, this is the chink in their armor. The second stringers and below don't get any reps so when someone goes down they get exposed. As much as I hate it, Clemson had everyone ready.

The hero of the game was Renfrow...he made that shoestring tackle or Bama would have been 4 more ahead. They got a FG on that play due to that flase start

Was it the play where he ran and was tackled by the Clemson player, and the Clemson player wouldn't let go of his leg when he tried to get up? Should of been a personal foul on Clemson.

FIFY

Even though I didn't agree with the last 2 TD play calls for Clemson, it was one of the most exciting National Titles I've ever watched. It beats the ones from years past where teams have the game over by half time. FSU vs AU was a very exciting game as well, just as last years game. I hate the games where it's 41-14.
