Title Drive: Tigers win when Watson says, "Let's go be legendary"

It’s been five weeks since Clemson knocked off Alabama to win the College Football Playoff National Championship, and as I was going through the assembled notes and quotes I had after the game, I noticed I had a story in mind about the game-winning drive that I’ve never run. Full Story »

Agreed. Leggett's fingers seemingly stretched out 10" longer than normal to snag that pass. It reminded me of how a chameleon's tongue stretches out to zap a fly. It was a thing of beauty.

National Champs! Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

Agreed. How his body was contorted and stretched, yet still made the catch. It's what champions are made of. On his game-winnng catch at FSU, I asked him how he maintained his balance with one arm while twirling in the air..."I don't know," he laughed, "but it hurt." ??

Did anyone else set the DVR to record 60 minutes


Feb 14, 2017, 8:44 AM

after the game was supposed to end and have it cut off on the 3rd play of the final drive?

I was so bitter rewatching the entire game the other day only to have it cut off at the most intense part.

I did.

But, the game is on the YouTubes and you can rip it from there to save yourself a copy.

This user also has each megacast version uploaded as well.

I did worse than that. I forgot to set it at all, and so did my wife. The great part, though, was my son and I were at the game and got to bask in it live. One of the greatest moments in our lives, for sure.

It happens whether I am reliving it through words, video or just in my mind. Reliving that night in the stands with my family brings strands of confetti every single time. Please stop, David. Oh wait, never mind. Keep it coming. Again and again and again and again.Keep it coming all the way up until kickoff of the Kent State game.

Better story than Rudy ever would be. They both had pretty much the same beginning but Hunter became a hero and Rudy jumped offside. Go Tigers.

You are so right because Gallman was stopped. they had him hemmed in and I still don't know how he got the yards. Anyone in the NFL want to know what Gallman is made of, they need to watch that run... it was all on him.

Good thing Fuller got tackled or else 'Bama would have gotten almost two minutes to work with. The best tackle vs Clemson in history. :)

I think that 2 minutes was way more time than we needed bc a lot of time was wasted with time just clicking of the clock. I say we could have scored in a minute, and I'm glad that it turned out the way it did bc Bama didn't have another chance to get their hands on the ball. 2016 National Champions, Clemson University!!!

I haven't heard a lot about CJ Fuller's 22-yard return that set up the drive. To me, it was huge...heck he came within a toenail of breaking off a bigger return. Great job TIGERS!

You are probably right. But I was thinking about 'Bama getting the ball with almost two minutes left. Both defenses looked tired. I'm just happy Clemson scored with one tick to go.

At the celebration after the parade, Dabo said he told his players (I'm paraphrasing), "If every man just gives a little bit more, together we can do great things." When I went back and watched the game, there were so many instances of our guys giving just a little bit more, but especially on that last drive. I am so proud of these players and coaches. Every year, I think that the group of seniors walking out the door are my favorites and that I will miss them, but, boy, will I miss Watson, Gallman, Leggett, Boulware, Guillermo, Watkins, Williams, Scott, et al. Great Tigers and great men! Legendary indeed!!!
