→ Clemson’s Watson, Gallman and others ‘planning on moving on’ to NFL in 2017

Make this season count, then.

→ Missed FG helps No. 3 Clemson survive scare from NC State

I still can’t believe this game ended like it did. At least Clemson came out with the W.

→ Clemson’s Hunter Renfrow Out with Broken Hand

Huge bummer. I hope he’s back for FSU.

Κ

→ Clemson QB Deshaun Watson takes out $5 million insurance policy

As he should.

Κ

→ Clemson picked to repeat as ACC champions

No pressure or anything.

Κ

→ Clemson won’t charge for student tickets in 2016

I think this was the right move. Good job, Clemson.

Κ

→ Clemson could charge for some student football tickets

Part of me likes the idea that you can get students who really want to go to football games to pay a little extra for better seats, but I feel like IPTAY already allowed that. Ultimately, not charging students to go to the games was a nice touch and I hope it stays that way.

→ Clemson claims consecutive top-25 wins for first time in 27 years

This doesn’t take away the sting of the national title game loss, but it’s nice the basketball team isn’t going to be dead last in the conference.

→ Clemson advances to the national title game, dominates Oklahoma in second half

The second was pretty fun to watch.

→ Dabo Swinney lived with his mom in college at Alabama and it made them closer

In case you need one more reason to root for Dabo.

Κ

→ Clemson faked a punt in the playoff vs Oklahoma and it blew college football’s mind

As this play was developing I screamed “I can’t believe this is happening again.” After the pass was completed, however, the whole feeling of the game changed.

Κ

→ Sooners talked early, but Clemson delivered final word in Orange Bowl

Oklahoma talked a lot before this game, so I quite enjoyed watching Clemson thump them. That said, I don’t think there is going to be a lot of talk from Alabama before the title game.

Κ

→ A quick look ahead to the Clemson-Alabama national championship

Clemson’s main goal is going to be stopping Henry, which is what Michigan State tried to do, but in doing so, it’s also going to have to put pressure on Coker. The Tigers actually executed this feat well against the Oklahoma offensive line. Clemson got a ton of pressure on Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield and sacked him five times. Mayfield, who has been an additional rushing threat for the Sooners at times this season, finished with 10 carries for minus-15 yards.

The previews of the game are already starting, and this one sounds about right.

Κ

→ 3 Clemson Players Suspended for Orange Bowl

Huge bummer. It looks like things are coming off the rails before they have even started.

Κ

→ Dabo Swinney rents out a Frankie’s Fun Park for the Team

As I’ve said before, I can see why people have a lot of fun playing for Dabo.

Κ

→ Clemson WR Artavis Scott had meniscus surgery after ACC title game

So he was only 80%, but he’ll probably be fine by the bowl game? I’ve got my fingers crossed that’s true. They need Scott to win.

Κ

→ Dabo Swinney wins Home Depot Coach of the Year

I’m not sure Clemson is good enough to win the national title, but I’m happy it’s getting all this attention. In the long term, this can’t do anything but help future recruiting.

Κ

→ Dabo Swinney’s quotebox: To be ‘All In,’ ‘don’t buy the lie’ and B.Y.O.G.

Dabo’s the best. I hope he’s having good luck getting the Tigers ready for December 31.

Κ

→ Watson Wins Davey O’Brien Awards

Not a real surprise, since Watson was the only QB in the Heisman finals. That said, it is well deserved.

Κ

→ Derrick Henry, Deshaun Watson and Christian McCaffrey are Heisman finalists

Good to see Deshaun on the list. I think people have already decided that Henry is going to get the award, but I’m glad to see that Deshaun (at least) gets to attend.
