Is TLAW already the new G.O.A.T.??


Posted: Jan 16, 2019 3:25 PM
 

I think it’s safe to say that we started to mold the crown for DW4 after the 5th TD pass against NC in his first start and we handed it to him after the loss to Bama.
What more do you need to see to give it to TLAW?
No losses to sc? Heisman? One more Natty?
Thinking it’s time we start the conversation? What say u gents??

What happened to the KB2 argument? Can't believe that really happened

He needs to win a Heisman. Vegas already has him as this year's leader at 3:1 odds, with Etienne at 12:1 and Higgins at 25:1. I can't believe Ross isn't in the mix:

Let his career play out.

Way too early. Check back after his last game in January of 2022.


Trevor is the best QB I'v ever seen play college ball.

I started leaning in that direction last Spring and nothing he's done has changed the direction or acceleration of the thought. I'm not going to argue this with anyone because it's my opinion, I'm entitled to it just like everyone else. My apologies to Deshaun and our other great quarterbacks for surely I mean no insult to any of them.

While i'd love to agree, i gotta see how he responds to all

this praise and spotlight. If he can handle all that and still out-perform the competition then i'm on board with making a case. I think he's as close to a no-doubter as there is but I gotta see it first. He was the underdog against Tua and thats alot less pressure than being the top dog and having to fend off the underdog who's also great. He's also gotta stay healthy as well as stay grounded. And when you say GOAT are you saying for Clemson or for College Football? Serious question...

That Is a serious question..
I was thinking our GOAT which basically compares him to DW4

But I do think he will someday be in the former conversation as well, barring injury.

Trevor has received this kind of praise since his freshman year of high school. He was national freshman of the year per Max Preps his freshmen year of high school. He received many state and national awards in high school. Obviously it didn’t stop him from working hard and being great this year. He doesn’t care about accolades. He was being genuine when he said football doesn’t define him - Christ does. He’s extremely unique. I know all that praise would go right to my head!

In my mind, TLaw will not be considered the GOAT...DW4 will. No matter what TLaw does, he will not, and can not be the first one in 35 years to do it. Do not get me wrong, TLaw is great, but the 2 trips DW4 made to the NC were more special because they were less expected. It is also why Dabo should never even consider going back to Bama, he would be seen as continuing the legacy that Saban built. TLaw is likewise going to be seen as continuing the legacy that DW4 started.

The year we won, we were expected to make it and compete. Tbh the year we lost, I expected to get there. I figured we’d roll into the playoffs at 12-1. I’ll take 13-0 every time tho

DW was a great player and broke a
30 + year title drought, but TLaw is only the second ever true freshman to win a title and led the first ever 15-0 in modern day history. No, he didn’t do it alone and he wasn’t the starter in all of these games, but you have to consider that no other true freshman QB has accomplished any of this.

All I know is TLAW has cost me a lot of money over the past week; you know, having to buy all that national championship gear and such.

Time will tell. Last year Tua was all the rage. Let's see how it plays out. Should be fun to go along for the ride.

I don't know. But I do know he had the GOAT

game against the presupposed GOAT team in one of our three most important games in Clemson history.


According to a fair number of T-netters, KB2 should

have started all this year. Yes, this group of "T-nutters" demonstrated a remarkable inability to understand the game of football. And thank goodness Dabo and wiser minds prevailed.

But to your point, TL16 is GOAT II. DW4 is GOAT I, there is only one GOAT I, and the talented TL16 does not attend Clemson without GOAT I.
