I watched Clemson in a couple of games this past year. I am certainly no expert on college football being a Miami fan, and having learned to live with disappointment. But I think I know quality when I see it. In the playoff game Clemson looked very tough against Notre Dame, and I concluded that Alabama, as good as they are and there is no denying it, would have their hands full with this opponent. Alabama is not used to being pushed around. Usually they do the pushing. But this time, against Clemson, they looked pretty bad. It was like Alabama was up against the perfect college football team. Clemson could do no wrong, and it is awesome to witness perfection. If QB Lawrence is this good at age nineteen, what is he going to look like in the NFL in six or seven years, once he is a veteran professional quarterback - Peyton Manning? Dan Marino? Aaron Rodgers? Tom Brady? No telling, but it looks like the sky is the limit. Good luck to this awesome young man. It'll be great fun to watch him grow.
