    So youve never seen a team come back from 10 down with 11 minutes to play?

    Clemson gave up over 650 yards of total offense, over 450 in the air, while gaining almost 400 yards themselves. Burrow outplayed Lawrence, a couple of Clemson’s DB’s didn’t play that well, and their LB was ejected in the 3Q for targeting. I believe the better team won and don’t see why Clemson should have won this game if not for officiating.

    I'd be curious how the ad revenue for that time slot would compare to Saturday at 7 pm. As it stands I go to bed at halftime, and I bet a lot of people on the east coast do as well.

    LSU played a great game. But, every call went against Clemson. The offensive interference call took 7 off the board. Reviewing and reversing close calls with replay that took away Clemson first downs and failing to review the hand that touched down. LSU was a deserving champion, but the charitable decision to include the PAC 12 in the championship with that sorry crew was a bad one.

    Yep...I went to bed at halftime as well. That is just too late on a Monday to start this game. I've always been a proponent of making the day after the Super Bowl a holiday (combine it with presidents day) but at least the NFL usually starts their game at 6 PM. An 8 PM start with that many commercials is just ridiculous.

    That was one of the worst refereed games I've seen in a while. LSU played the better game, for sure, but that really sucked to watch as a Clemson fan. Lots of close calls (holding by LSU line, PI on LSU DBs) went uncalled. I don't remember seeing a single close call go Clemson's way. And that's not even counting the obvious mistakes by the refs. LSU RB clearly touched the ground out of bounds with no review. No excuse for that, especially when only a few minutes later they controversially overturned a Higgins catch. I was mad when the LSU WR (Chase) clearly pushed off to catch his first TD, but whatever - they're letting them play. Then they take Clemson's last effort at a comeback off the board with an OPI call that was controversial, at best. Looked like DPI to me. Targeting on Skalski was clearly the right call, but it was yet another huge blow in a game that felt like Clemson not only had to play against the best team in the country - they also had to beat the refs and the LSU home crowd.

    Yep, and I don't understand it at all. There were 4 or 5 plays that looked like he was just a hair from breaking a TD, but they barely gave him the ball. Clemson wasn't going to win a passing shootout against arguably the best passing offense of all time., so why try?

    The role of QB has changed so much in CFB. Seems hard to compare Graham Harrell to Steve Spurrier, or compare Johnny Unitas to Danny Wuerffel. Who do you think is the greatest college QB of all time?

    Was there an extended halftime too? I tried to make it to the 3rd quarter but gave up 5 minutes in. Turning a 60 minute game into a 4.x hour show is an abomination.

    I can't agree with that. With the exception of one play (when the LSU player's hand and foot were out of bounds, but he kept running), I can't think of a significant play they got wrong – and several times proved my own 'live action' view to be wrong. Both the two big Clemson non-catches were clearly non-catches. The pass interference call in the endzone was definitely offensive not defensive (though I agree PI is way too discretionary and called way too inconsistently in general in CFB today). The targeting call was textbook (though I understand people who don't like the rule).

    Additional note: Herbstreit really is the best TV guy out there right now, and it's not even close. He's going to be this generation's Keith Jackson or something.

    At what point, does Odell Beckham Jr. hanging and partying with the team in the locker room not resemble this though?

    Can’t purchase tobacco now until you’re 21. There’s some underage tobaccoing going on in that locker room.

    They took a long Clemson TD off the board for a PI call that was absolutely no worse than the one that resulted in a long LSU TD. Both were controversial and probably OPI. The problem is that both calls went LSU's way and resulted in a 14-point swing. The first one occurred at a time when Clemson appeared to be poised to take over the game. The second one prevented Clemson from having a chance to get back in the game.

    I hate when people "blame" the refs for a loss, and I hate it even more when people claim the refs intentionally threw the game. I'm not saying either. I'm just saying it was frustrating to see just about every controversial call go the same way. The best team won, but the refereeing kept it from being closer than it should have been.
