    Well I'm glad Clemson won because this proofs that SEC teams in the top 5 can be beat. I've known that for years. Once you get a football playoff system vs BCS favoritism; this proves that teams even like Crimson Tide can lose. LSU win vs UCF was an impressive game even though UCF lost 40-32. This now proves that teams like them, Clemson, Texas, and Georgia shouldn't be look over for teams like Alabama or Ohio State.

  9. Ray 7337 says

    Hahaha Bama took a BEATING

  10. J K says

    It took an Alabama man to take Alabama down.

  11. Micael Williams says

    Clemson was the better team plain and simple it happens but that is the beauty of college football it's chess, not checkers

  12. Alive & Focused says

    I think for the Alabama fan base, this was very eye-opening! It showed us that Clemson is indeed building their program to compete with us year after year. We're gonna have to work twice as hard now to plant that flag atop of the hill.

  13. Kenneth Hoffman says

    Bama was BURNED OUT by the time they reached this game. Nick ensured that.

  14. Enigmatized says

    I wanted football highlights not these over fucking paid people that ramble on…..

  15. Ezra Williams says

  16. Jesse Mcgee says

    My dream came true I was waiting for a team to blow out Alabama thank you Clemson👍

  17. Nathan H. says

    We need a 6 team college playoff, with the top two teams getting a bye.


    CL …………EM…………son but no TIGER ………….

  19. Adolf Hitler says

    Homeboy on the left was with the Tide and Tua, then as soon as Clemson wins he hopped on Lawrence’s dick.

  20. Teezy T says

    Good ole Palmetto State ass whooping

  21. juanmaale says

    Cavs would’ve saved the NBA if the league didn’t steal it on behalf of GS in 2018 Finals Game One, before LeBron broke his hand out of frustration

  22. Premium Quality says

    Max is a lier!!!!! Loser

  23. Terry Larsen says

    Haskins is the best QB. You’ll see in the NFL. This left handed Don Ho will be at best be a Matt Leinart or Mark Sanchez. 2 heralded college to pro flops….. and they stayed healthy at least in college.

  24. will stone says

    The only "ass beating" this game was the score board. the stats were close. Clemson made the big plays that gave them the win. Enjoy it this year clemson fans.. because next year.. its coming

  25. Joe Parker says

    Young man looks like the next coming Peyton Manning.

  26. Rich Castle says

    Hope Clemson hangs the banner soon so they will have time to enjoy it before they vacate the title for all the doping. It's going to happen that locker room is tainted boys.

  27. truth hurts says

    Hey guess what Bama it's 2019 every one is a champion does that help

  28. Justice Johnson says

    He will win the Heisman

  29. Vishious V says

    Clemson won Cuz, Sunshine had transferred "TITANS" to be "TIGER"!

  30. David Tosh says


  31. Manfred Buchholz says

    you are so dumb !! until the ncaa changes the tier system and invokes proper scheduling this game is dead !!

  32. W K says

    I don't see how the outcome changes anything. We are still in an endless cycle of Alabama-Clemson for the foreseeable future (with the occasional one-off interrupting the pattern). That's where we've been for 4 years now.

  33. 83Henno says

    “Dick Saban”

  34. Darren Holmes says

    Too say that no one has ever heard of TL since Monday, is either a fucking moron or doesn’t know shit about college football. Saying that TL was a nobody at the beginning of the year, YOU’RE FUCKING DUMB! High recruited QB. Was recruited by just about every school in the country. Started over a whack QB who can’t throw a football downfield and runs it? KB wasn’t going to win Clemson a National Championship. When Trevor got the nod, Clemson had the best person in that seat to win. Saying Clemson needs to let other teams win! Lol. You’re kidding right? Those powerhouse schools Like Michigan, Florida, FSU, OSU, Texas, USC, Alabama, Notre Dame and Oklahoma have way more National Titles than Clemson does, which is 3. If that to much for you pansies?? Grow up! Salty that the better team won. Take the beating like a man and move the fuck on

  35. D. W. says

    Come on! Most of America was ready to see the Tide get beat. Thanks Clemson!

  36. SMP Account says

    Maxx is full of crap

  37. Darren Holmes says

    Buuuuuuut…….he is better! He beat Alabama
