Unbelievable. I can’t remember the last time I looked at something so elite like Alabama and thought “They are getting their asses kicked on the biggest stage”. Last nights National Championship game didn’t disappoint, unless you wanted to see Saban beat Bear for his 7th national championship. Clemson was dominant, and Trevor Lawrence proved that benching Kelly Bryant was the smartest move in football this year.
For my fellow NFL Draft enthusiasts, these two teams will define football for years to come. Christian Wilkins and Dexter Lawrence are men. Trevor Lawrence has two more full years at Clemson before going first overall in the draft, and Justyn Ross made two of the most insane catches a true freshmen has ever made.
Trevor Lawrence is a true freshmen, meaning last year he was a senior in high school. To walk out here this season and dominate college football the way he did was just unheard of, even for Clemson. Dabo Swinney has created a chance for another college football program to be a dynasty and there’s no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
On the Alabama side of the ball, Saban looked defeated. Especially when the Crimson Tide ran a fake field goal that was shut down by the Clemson D almost instantly. Tua looked shut down even with the occasional flash of greatness. Tua will have a wonderful career, but last night he threw two interceptions in the first quarter, one coming back for a Pick Six.
These guys ( Quinnen Williams, Dexter Lawrence, Clelin Ferrell, Christian Wilkins, Jonah Williams, Damien Harris, Raekwon Davis, Trayvon Mullen, so many more) are going to be around in the NFL for a long time, proving that these two dynasty colleges are legit. You always get the occasional run from a college great, such as Florida State with Winston, Oregon with Mariota, and of course Louisville with Jackson. But to sustain excellence is the greatest and toughest accomplishment in sports.
Clemson is your 2018-2019 National CFB Champion, defeating the Crimson Tide 44-16 in dominating fashion. Now, let’s get ready for the draft.
