New Story: A Look Back: Tigers were destined to win the National Championship

A Look Back: Tigers were destined to win the National Championship

Four months have passed since Hunter Renfrow carefully cradled the pass from Deshaun Watson and propelled himself into Clemson history. In many ways, it seems like it was yesterday. In other ways, it seems longer. Full Story »



Except for that last TD reception, we forget the other plays

made by Hunter. He also caught another TD pass, he tackled the Bama much larger defensive player on the way to the goal, which looked like it turned the game around. On that last drive, he caught another (or two?) clutch passes. Now, I hear nothing about him being a star next year????

Hunter will be overlooked again next year.... unless we meet Alabama again.... they know his name... and number...

They knew Williams and DW's name and number. It didn't matter. Hope we meet next year. Means were like in the playoff.


YeP...

You're right on all accounts..from destiny, luck & more luck combined with the team's vision & desire to get back to Natty (hopefully vs Tide) and win it..

And it being fresh but seemingly a year ago but ready to Roar again!

To All CLEMSON TiGERS..Sending you Bright Light from the Carolina Coast and hoping you get to witness a huge Orange sunset tonight. Go Tigers!

As always, good article. I guess it's necessary to make your points with a few examples and Tiger fans can always offer other, perhaps better examples (ha ha). But I think you remiss in pointing out the tremendous defensive effort (how many 3 & outs?). And who could argue with Renfrow's touchdown saving tackle of a fumble. Thwared a big momentum swing. The memories will forevert be sweet.

Ask the players if the stars had anything to do with the wins. They did not. A team or a person is not able to perform miracles. Only God can do that. Like Coach Swinney said in the post game interview at Tampa, "Only God can do this". Ask the players if the hard work they put in, along with some answered prayers along the way had anything to do with it.


If Williams doesn't get hurt, we probably win in 16

For as much whining as I've heard about Scarborough's injury affecting the 17 game, folks tend to forget that we played 16 without 2 future 1st rounders and a 2nd.
Williams (#7 NFL pick 2017),
Shaq Lawson (#19 pick 2016)
McKenzie Alexander (#54 pick 2016)


We were also missing Cain in that game

So that was our two best deep ball WRs, a hobbled 1st round DE and completely lost our 2nd round, which was an injustice all its own, CB.


Good points by both of you. I wanted that 2015 championship bad!***

Clemson and Alabama deserve one title each.

In 2016, I felt we were the better team, but the game went Bama's way.

In 2017, I felt we were the underdogs, but the game went our way.

If MW (and Mack and Shaq) hadn't gotten hurt, everybody gets their ring a year earlier.

Tigers were underdogs both years. Tigers outplayed them both years statistically. They were fortunate we didn't come away with two national championships. They beat us with special team play (onside kick and k/o return).


Don't know whether or not it was destiny? Think about this..

Right after our loss to Pitt it seemed like we would need a miracle to make the playoff again. Then wouldn't you know the stars aligned and both Michigan and Washington also lost that night which kept us in the running.

Yes! We often forget about how three of the four top teams lost the same day, which helped keep the rankings exactly the same.

That is the 1st thing to come to my mind about this past season. If either Michigan or Washington had won that weekend, Clemson would not have made the playoff. That speaks more of destiny to me than anything else!


I am already calling CU vs Bammer in Round 1 of Playoff


Posted: May 15, 2017 10:47 AM
 

I have called, weeks ago, CU vs Bammer in Round 1 of the playoff. Probably in Sugar Bowl. Final to be vs either the hairless nuts from Columbus or the real USC (possibly Warshington). Mark the tape.


Who's our QB?***

The exclamation point was the Gallman TD.....where Hearn broke the Bama dlinemen....he might as well have curled up in the fetal position at that point.

FSU game was 2 weeks later, not 1...


Posted: May 15, 2017 12:19 PM
 

Both Clemson and FSU had a bye week before that game. Good read though.


Best current position...... We know. Others don't.

Most of the outside world think we had a good run with a great QB (ala oregon - mariota). Had friends from all over the country kinda wink and say good run.
My reply "You have no idea what's coming"...............


Not to mention.... quite a few highly ranked teams


Posted: May 16, 2017 12:18 PM
 

lost in the closing weeks letting us stay in the playoff hunt...
