Alabama Won The Popular Vote

playoff-championship-clemson-alabama-football


But Clemson won the championship.

Deshaun Watson never won the Heisman Trophy but consistently told everyone who would listen he believed he was the best player in college football.

After leading Clemson back from a two-touchdown deficit and taking down the kings of college football to deliver the Tigers their first national title since 1981, no one is going to argue with him. Clemson beat Alabama 35-31 on Monday night in a game for the ages, and it was Watson’s 420 passing yards, 43 rushing yards and four total touchdowns (three passing) that ensured the Tigers won the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship.

One year after putting up 478 yards on Alabama in a five-point loss, Watson calmly led the Tigers back and wore Alabama down with a performance that will cement his legacy as one of the greatest individual players in college football history. It was Deshaun and Dabo who handed Nick Saban his first loss in a national championship game and first loss in any type of title game (SEC, BCS or CFP) since the 2008 SEC Championship Game.


I’m not a fan of college football but that was a hell of a game. The “Crimson Tide” of Alabama were the reigning champs and were favored to win. Somebody forgot to tell the Clemson Tigers. The Tigers scored twice in the 4th quarter to take the lead, and then ‘Bama took the lead right back with just over two minutes to go. But with 1 second left on the clock Clemson scored again.

It was like November 8th all over again.

  1. Seriously, I’m not a fan of either team, but that was one of the best games I’ve ever watched.

    Women’s March on Washington Opens Contentious Dialogues About Race

    Many thousands of women are expected to converge on the nation’s capital for the Women’s March on Washington the day after Donald J. Trump’s inauguration. Jennifer Willis no longer plans to be one of them.

    Ms. Willis, a 50-year-old wedding minister from South Carolina, had looked forward to taking her daughters to the march. Then she read a post on the Facebook page for the march that made her feel unwelcome because she is white.

    The post, written by a black activist from Brooklyn who is a march volunteer, advised “white allies” to listen more and talk less. It also chided those who, it said, were only now waking up to racism because of the election.

    “You don’t just get to join because now you’re scared, too,” read the post. “I was born scared.”

    Stung by the tone, Ms. Willis canceled her trip.

    “This is a women’s march,” she said. “We’re supposed to be allies in equal pay, marriage, adoption. Why is it now about, ‘White women don’t understand black women’?”

    If all goes as planned, the Jan. 21 march will be a momentous display of unity in protest of a president whose treatment of women came to dominate the campaign’s final weeks. But long before the first buses roll to Washington and sister demonstrations take place in other cities, contentious conversations about race have erupted nearly every day among marchers, exhilarating some and alienating others.

    This is where I get to say, “I TOLD YOU SO!

    • elliesmom says:

      Until women who put their own issues first tell the women who put their race and sexual preference ahead of being a woman to get their own march, they deserve what they get. I remember someone dropping into Uppity’s place in 2008 after Hillary conceded to tell the women there Native American issues needed our attention more. My grandmother told me the “activist gene” skips a generation. One generation works hard for something. The next generation enjoys the benefits, often frittering some of them away. Then the next generation sees it’s losing ground and kicks back in, recovering what was lost and adding some ground. I’ve given up on my daughter’s generation just like Nana gave up on my mother’s. My money is now on Crash. I’m planting seeds. I may not be here to see them bear fruit, but there will be another spring.

    • DeniseVB says:

      This “march” certainly started out at the grassroots level and social media word of mouth by women upset that Trump said “pussy”. It was called The Million Woman March to show him “nobody grabs our pussy” or something like that. I’ve watched it evolve into the clown show it is now with the professional groups of women’s issues hijacking the event. Big names were recruited, which attracted more attention and involvement. It’s what the left does, waters down the message with all their grievances aired at once. Like OWS and BLM I guess we’ll have to “wait for it” again. 😉

      • lizzy says:

        The thing I find galling; Trump is a better women’s candidate than Hillary or any Democrat. He employs many women at good wages many in non traditional jobs. All Hillary offers is Sharia law from her Muslim hordes. I don’t care to go back to being a man’s property with no power over my life. If the dems hadn’t been totally corrupt we wouldn’t need Trump.

      • swanspirit says:

        I can’t help thinking of it as the Million Pussy March. It seemed ridiuculous from the beginning. All those women wearing pussycat hats. And now they are repeating what happened in 2008. Their so called womenfolk issues preempted, coopted, and shoved to back burner because other issues are more important. Just reminds me of Obarfs 2008 campaign, all over again.

      • Constance says:

        It is really embarrassing to be a woman sometimes. But this clusterfuck only indicates that Liberal women are too dumb to organize a one car parade let alone anything else and management of anything is beyond them. It says nothing about all other women and our abilities.

    Farewell to a Decade of Media Drooling Over Barack Obama

    Thousands Of US Troops Arrive In Europe In “One Of Largest Deployments Since The Cold War”

    “There is, starting from Washington DC, a major push to do everything possible in the next two weeks to create unending hostility between the West and Russia that can’t be undone by Donald Trump or anyone else. Even at the risk of open violence, rather than simply Cold War hostility. This is highly preferable to weapons profiteers as against actual peace breaking out, which is their greatest fear,” author and journalist David Swanson told RT on Monday.

      Just gonna put it out that this ain’t no big deal. I’m glad for Charlie Brotman he still thinks he’s competitive as a parade announcer. He’s older than me by about 3 years and I still do radio and TV voiceovers, so I understand. But I’m well-prepared to be replaced. And think of the cue cards he no longer has to keep track of. He should enjoy the emeritus-ness and just have fun with it.

  5. Somebody says:

    Yep I has the sads. It was a good game, but didn’t end the way I had hoped. Most everyone else is happy, because people love to hate on Bama.

    We tried, it was a good game but Clemson wanted it more I think. I’m happy for Bama alum coach Swinney, he’s worked hard, he’s a good coach. DeShaun Watson is a hell of a good quarterback, he has a bright future in the NFL. Clemson’s receivers aren’t chopped liver, they made some damn good catches.

    It’s hard to go back to back with championships, but I’m sure we’ll be in the hunt next year. It may take some time to rebuild Clemson’s team (they’re losing most of them), but Bama was playing the 116th youngest team out of 128, lots of true freshmen so we’ll be back!

    Co-Designer of Dolce & Gabbana Slams Instagram Followers After Criticism of Melania Trump

    • elliesmom says:

      The problem really is Melania Trump is going to point out what a joke it was to promote Michelle Obama as a fashion icon. Melania won’t have to say a word. Just show up impeccably dressed. She could shop at Target and look better than Michelle. A lot of the designers who dressed Michelle will fade quickly. As they say on Project Runway, “In the fashion world, one day you’re in, and the next day you’re out.”

    • Venus says:

      Dolce & Gabbanna don’t give a f**k.

      I ❤ them ever since they came out against SSM & in vitro babies ("synthetic" babies they call them) and did not give a shit that the LGBT community railed against them for that. D&G explained their position that yes, they were gay, but they were Catholic. LOL!!

      Seriously, I'm tired of people's sexual orientation being given so much importance. Yes, it is ONE PART of who you are, but it should not *dominate* all aspects of your life. . People are more than who they have sex with or there are pretty pathetic.

      • The post drew a high number of supportive comments, but a few of Gabbana’s followers said that they would never buy any of his products or wear his clothes.

        I don’t wear D&G but that’s because they don’t sell that shit in the places I can afford to shop. I once owned a Tommy Hilfiger shirt that a girlfriend bought for me. I hated it and quit wearing it after we broke up.

        The fanciest suit I ever owned cost $300 at Penneys.

    So the Dem strategy for 2020 is obstructionism ? So much fake news swirling around Sessions, looks like the Dems are biting. I had to unfollow Booker on FB because he went from cheerful Mr. Positive to Trump Sucks and spitting out unoriginal vile prog talking points. Meh.

    In case you’re interested. Dems are going to be annoying and fundraising off being badass against the Trump picks, I don’t think I can watch on the Cspan.

    • Lulu says:

      I plan to have it on while I’m doing other stuff. I have a suspicion that they are not going to be regular hearings. These guys have been Trump-a-sized and won’t be punished by Trump if they pop off at the Dems. The audience and approval for the nominees is that of Republican members of the Senate not Dem special interests or the media. There is going to be a lot of SJW blah blah and nitpicking on stuff no one cares about which is exactly why Hill lost. More dead horse beating. And Trump/McConnell is bum rushing the Dems who are lazy, freaked out, and disorganized and can’t get their shit together with out a six month committee and a two year plan cooked up by “experts”.

      • Lulu says:

        There are THREE hearings going on simultaneously. Sessions, Tillerson and Mattis. LOL. The media is going to have as much difficulty covering all that for propaganda as the Dems are going to have making it. Which one to cover live? Which “fake” story to lede. Ha! Cover one and the other two get away. Pick the wrong one and it is a nothing-burger. Trump the general with a three pronged pincer attack. Did Mattis help with this strategery? It is going to be a long day for the Dems.

    • lateblum says:

      Oddly enough there was an incident that occurred in a well known medical school in which I personally witnessed the head of the school behaving similarly with a temp worker who, from the back, resembled a fairly high level clinician/professor. The difference was that he kissed her on the back of her neck. The worker jumped up and screamed. She, or course, did not know of her strong resemblance to the faculty member. Within a year, the head of the school was replaced and removed from the university. The temp worker left the day of the incident since she felt completely unsafe. The faculty member who had no role and had not been present remains on staff.
      It was not the first time I’d witnessed this type of behavior between a male superior and a female “subordinate” in my work history. It was also not the first time I acted upon what I had witnessed.

    It is a cold, wet, very windy day. Due to the weather, bronco will not be helicoptering in, but driving. Thus, the lakeshore drive and other big and little streets will be shut down from rush hour onward. How very nice. It will be his parting gift to the city that propped him up and offered some “legitimacy”. Roads shut down in rush hour. . .
