Clemson beats Alabama for the National Championship

Clemson beat Alabama 35-31 last night to win the College Football Playoff National Championship.

I didn’t watch the game. College football isn’t really my thing. Plus, I just figured Alabama was going to win because that’s what they do. I checked the score at some point last night and it was 14-0 in Alabama’s favor. I then woke up this morning and checked ESPN and immediately saw a photo of overjoyed players in Clemson creamsicle orange.

I wasn’t expecting that.

I went on to read that Clemson won that game in the last seconds. That made me think that perhaps Clemson got lucky. I then looked at the stats of the game. Clemson didn’t get lucky. Clemson kicked Alabama’s ass.

What’s strange is that Alabama rushed for 221 yards, yet controlled the ball almost ten minutes less than Clemson. I now wish I’d watched the game.

  1. You are such an idiot if you don’t think Clemson’s entire season was lucky. They wouldn’t have made the playoffs without it.
