I can't tell y'all how much this win means to us. I moved to Clemson in 1999 to start Engineering School. I met my future wife my Junior year. We both graduated in 2004. I live about 45-50 minutes from Clemson near DT Greenville and still go to 3-4 games per year (went to 6 last year!) Somehow 6 of my close friends I met at Clemson all live within 20-30 minutes of each other and we still hang out and watch games together. We honestly have one of the best atmospheres in college football, SO HAPPY right now

Just so incredible. It looked terrible for us after that turnover and field goal early in the 3rd. Terrible start, great finish. C - L - E - M - S - O - N, T - I - G - E - RRRRRR - S, FIGHT TIGERS, FIGHT TIGERS, FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

Work is going to suck tomorrow...

Congratulations, but your touchdown music is still lousy.

Clemson definitely deserved it after fighting back from a 10 point deficit late in the 3rd.

I keep noticing the DOT puts up signs to honor my burnouts. That's nice of them.

We just had a snow storm roll through friday night/saturday morning that dumped a legitimate 4-5" of snow on us, and we're not used to that. Everything has been shut down. School has been closed the last 2 days. In addition to the Clemson win, I'm sure there was a lot of baby makin' going on this past weekend too! So there will likely be a spike in births in about 9 months from both events!

Being an Alabama fan for quite a number of years obviously would have loved to see them win (again). I told many of my friends that I thought Clemson had the best chance of any team to beat Bama and I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they did.

If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best.

Congratulations Clemson.

As much as it looked like Alabama dominated the first 3 quarters, kudos to the Clemson defense for keeping the game close enough. Can't believe they scored 21 in the 4th quarter against that Alabama defense. Unbelievable that they kept their cool and didn't totally fizz out like so many other teams would have done.

So glad I didn't give up on the game at the end of the 3rd quarter and go to bed.

PS...their instant replay rule is a bit crazy. Really slowed down the game and is a real momentum killer. They should have a coaches challenge like they do in the NFL and not a booth buzz in for all the close catches.

This is my second national Championship. I was there to see the 1981 team, only because I was running a semester behind because of major changes and such. It worked out great though I felt something special about Dabo when he got the job 8 years ago. Congrats Tigers

65 . . . we got a dusting of snow, gone by the afternoon Saturday. but the cold was here for sure. But back to 70s by Thursday

I saw that. I love that it can snow here and be gone in a couple days.

This is what we got (sorry for the C10 pic, the Mustangs were tucked in the garage). My yard still has +/-1-2" still hanging around. I checked a bunch of spots on the deck and around the yard and we got between 4-5". It had melted down to about 2-3" by that afternoon, but the cold has kept it from melting too much in the yard. I hope it's gone soon, I've had to take my wife to work the last two days because of the ice, but it looks like that should be totally gone by this afternoon, there was just a few small areas hanging around.

I was only 13 months old when we won the first one, so this one means a lot to me. I already bought a 3'x5' flag to fly on my porch pole for a few weeks, then I'll hang it up in the garage.

My brother in law is a huge Alabama fan. He came by the farm today and he is still simmering over last night. I just mentioned about the game and he started fuming and stuttering and spitting and whining that the ref's missed the illegal pick on the play...twice. Alabama fans are somewhat wacko in my Auburn University mind. Rabid! Sometimes, I feel like asking him if he was going to lose his house or something because they lost. When someone is that rabid, I want to ask them if they donate to the U? He didn't go to school there....just likes to ride the "Alabama Championship" train wreck. I do know how to push their buttons and get them to foaming at the mouth...lol Auburn people are devilish.

PS. I like how the crowd booed Spurrier when he went on the field...lol

My Bama Buddy said "I'm not ready to talk about it yet" haha. I've got property about 10 minutes from Clemson. I've got to get set up to spend the night there so I can go see some games next season.
