Well we are approx. 5 hrs. away from the start of the BCS and the oxygen bottles are full.
"Tide" to clean your clothes and "The Tide" to clean your clock. ;-)
Lol! Have fun Rocky. I will be watching, but not CHEERing;)
I'd just like to see a good game. I fully expect Alabama to make Clemson look like the girl scouts.
I am all in with both feet and have been waiting for this game since last year. I just can't get enough of this incredible machine from Alabama. I also like their state flag the "Terminator". ;-)
Is there another college game on, didn’t know that...Lol
Rock - You are gonna need all that oxygen to eat all that crow if they loose...8^)))
I will be shocked if this game doesn't go down to the wire. Clemson along with Georgia are the only teams that have talent considerable to Alabama. Georgia seems to always find a way to lose and Clemson on the other hand seems to always find a way to win. Bottom line....this will be fun.
I will be switching back and forth between "the game" and Wonder Woman just to check and see if Clemson is still standing. ;-)
I've got a $20 bet with a buddy, I've got Clemson and 7-1/2 points...8^)
Wonder Woman? Sabin starring in a movie the same time as the game?
Just kidding Rock!
You can kiss that double sawbuck away. ;-)
I'm cheering on Clemson. The SEC fan club might withdraw from participation here for a bit, if their beloved 'Bama losses. :^)
Rock, did you fill your O2 bottles up today? I can hear the hyperventilation coming from Philly as I type this.
Goliath hit with the first stone!
I bet Rock passed clean out on that one and missed Alabama's response. ^)
Hopefully he came to in time to see that!
5 min in and 3 touchdowns? wow.
Maybe the shocking part is two of em are Clemson.....
This is like the Chiefs and Rams!
End of Q1, Clemson.
Where is Rock?
Best enjoy this, I think the Tide is coming.
Tigers came with their pockets full a rocks!
That Pepsi commercial icing the kicker is funny after yesterday.
Clemson is holding on to their lead, its a football game worth watching!
That kid Laurence(?) looks like a pro QB...... freshman? wow. He's got an arm.... all the throws.
Alabama is on the verge of getting blown out.
Bama has started slow several times late in the year, citadel comes to mind. But David ain't no citadel!
31-16 at half. wow again....
Bama can come back in a flash. But not gonna be easy.
he...he...he... Oh boy. You guys just don't know Alabama. Watch the entire game and then come back and apologize.
Loving this halftime score. Points and momentum to Clemson with Tua rattled... but 'bama doesn't quit on any game.
Sabin will definitely adjust at half. Good game.
WV, has got to be happy no matter what. They finally have a coach that knows how to win. :-)
Sucks for Troy, though.
SEC fanboy! All the time. :-)
I'm bettin theres some ears ringin in that bama locker room.
Dabo Swinney 86 and 1 when leading by 15 or more.
Bama looks lost! Halftime adjustments not working so far. But a lot of football to be played. Roll Tigers!-)
Ouch that Clemson TD is going to leave a mark.
"WV, has got to be happy no matter what. They finally have a coach that knows how to win. :-) Sucks for Troy, though.

Couldn't have said it any better Joey!
Rock, you had better turn those O2 bottles on.
37-16 halfway through 3rd....
If they score on this drive I think it's over.
Did Alabama trade jerseys during the half? No, that's right Rock and Bowfreak, they've been getting their butts handed to them all game.
Its over fellas unless Clemson wants to score more.
Rock, Ole Rock, where art thee? Rocky, Rocky, Breath! Breath MAN!!!!!!
Up by 28 going into the 4th quarter. Bama has there work cut out for them now.
Never thought the game would be like this.
44-16 if Dandy Don was still alive......
Lest not forget about Joey Ward either. SEC RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :^)
I LOVE it.
Thee Ohio State University would have played a better game;-)
The only adjustment Saban made at halftime was to his underwear.
Yes, I'm blowing up this thread for my buddies that way over extended the 'Tide on this one. That is how happy I am.
The goal line stand just sealed the deal. Start celebrating Clemson fans.
As Dirk said early on...... Pocket full of rocks..........
I'll be quite for a bit. I apologize for my behavior.
I just hate that Auburn spent so much money on Malzahn that they couldn’t afford Lawrence.
He picked the right Tigers to play for. :-)
He’s played a heck of a game. And kudos to the Tiger D.
Man, Syracuse would have been a better choice than ‘Bama. Better change the motto to “Roll over Tide”!
No, I am good, but not that good;-)
Rock, we still love ya man!
Talk about a BEATDOWN!!!
That should shut their mouths about SEC superiority.... Hey, they brought it on their selves, time to eat crow... And a 28 point BEAT DOWN by a freshman QB to boot... Wow!!!
I am Rocky's brother and there has been an emergency. We just found Rocky on the floor unconscious and a spilled open bottle of vitamin B-12 caplets on the floor. I will report back and update his condition ASAP but as of this writing you can pass the salt and pepper so when he revives the shoe won't taste as bad. Poor guy.
So how much $ did that cost Saban Rocky?
"Roll Tears" - That's a good one...8^)))
Lol...Rock, you had a hell of a ride! It was that last roll that got you! ;-)
Wow !!!!!!! Congrats Clemson !! Now get that kid a haircut !!! Ha !!!!
Ha! It’s all in good fun. Great stuff Rocky.
This is what happens when an SEC team finally meets a quality opponent.
Any NCAA basketball predictions you want to put out there;)
At least you got to the big dance, most never do.
One thing is for sure, if last night was a measurement of quality, Alabama might make a mid grade MAC quality team. :^)
They self destructed on offense and was physically dominated by the Tiger’s defense. I don’t know where their heads were at but, their butts got handed to them. They executed horribly and even though winning the time of possession handily, couldn’t put 2 and 2 together.
This is all on the players. It’s been nice to see them play to potential because this was a one sided game.
I knew when Oklahoma gave Alabama all they wanted that they were in trouble.
Well I just returned from a very difficult experience. I appreciate all the kinds words but a man must be big enough to take what is coming to him. Excuse me as I am a little out of breath from climbing this friggin 40 ft. ladder to get to my keyboard. Well how about that beat down huh? Uh...I must leave now the Zoloft is wearing off and I need another dose. Damn.......I still love this team despite this embarrassment and the many thrilling rides they took me on and will do so again, so get ready.
"and will do so again, so get ready"
Oh my, that ain't humble pie.... That's as bad as that mouth of the south paul finBOMB, some just never learn...8^)
Would be shocked if it’s not the same two teams again next year
Please. Have mercy and let this beat down take time to wear off, I would say till about Sept. 8th of 2019, and then, maybe. ;-)
Clemson seems to have Alabama's number when it comes to National Championships.
Where I come from you go home with the girl that you brought to the dance no matter that the homecoming queen may be eyeballing you. ;-)
Ill just say the same thing I did on the other thread about college ball... I'm astonished. I'd have figured it was going to be a rock fight to the finish... Instead it was an evisceration. Wow!
Would be shocked if it’s not the same two teams again next year
That game deserved a bid "WHOOOA NELLIE!!!"
Pocket full of rocks.... for the Rock. :^)
As I wrote on the NCAA Football thread
SEC 16, NOT the SEC 44!
Notre Dame, as in much derided Notre Dame, lost to Clemson by 27.
Alabama lost to Clemson by 28.
Would be idiotic to dispute those figures. Clemson has dethroned the King. I am not one to be defensive when the facts, not opinion, bear out the facts. Alabama was crushed. Plain and simple. This will not be my last wrong prediction, although admittedly this one really hurt . ;-)
At least it wasn't a 'double doink' game ender like da Bears!
Great college season...
...yes it was and the double doinker had me jumpin. They NFL ruled that a blocked kick as an Eagles finger tip barely touched the ball.
Had nothing to do with finger tips, kicker Parkey just plain SUX, he's been with 5 teams in 4 years and cost the Browns games too when they had him... He's terrible and can't believe he still in the NFL... As bad as kickers are now days, in both NFL and college, a good one comes at a premium... Kickers overall are bad at both levels now and I think its a lost art now days and has to root back to college where they learn... Time for teams to get them off soccer fields rather than football fields like they did back in the day...
The NFL believes otherwise when the Eagles player ran to the sideline and said he clipped the ball and New York reviewed the tape from 8 different angles, forward and backwards in super slo mo zoom and the tape revealed the player's finger did in fact contact the ball as the finger is seen to move backwards as the ball goes past. Officially the players is credited in the books with a blocked kick. You're right about Cody though because we had him and dumped him.
Kevin Paul's Link
Yeah I seen the video and aware of NFL credit change, but he still wouldn't have missed it... He sux...
To bring up Trevor Lawrence again...every time I look at him I can't help but think of this...
Nah, Trevor has a bigger nose...8^)))
Trevor "Goldilocks" Lawrence deserves the accolades but let's not forget the other freshman, Ross. Played above the rim all night and made some great catches to further his QB's reputation. That kid is special, too.
Zbone, I don't think that fingernail clip, and that is what the player said it tipped the very tip of his fingernail impacted that ball what so ever. That close just 43 yds. is a chip shot for these kickers. Even if he pulled it slightly left or right a clip is not going to send it into the uprights The ball never change direction, velocity or rotation from the film inspection but they claim it was a block. I guess the NFL did not need a suicide on their hands. ;-)
"To bring up Trevor Lawrence again...every time I look at him I can't help but think of this..."
That's funny Kevin, I thought the same thing.
Dirk Diggler's Link
I think Justyn Ross deserves more of the credit too. Lawrence was just slinging it at times, and a play was made on the other end. That boy came to play in this game.
This ones a little closer Kevin paul.
Idon't care who ya are..... that right there was funny..... LOL!
DD, that look was on Saban's face the majority of the game! Too funny!
