I watched Bama and Clemson play a few times this year. Coming into the game last night, I really thought Bama was the better team. They certainly looked the part throughout the season. But I agree with Walden...Clemson was prepared and played as if they were in a National Championship Game, Alabama did not. Of course, some of those crazy sideline catches helped, too.
Congrats to Clemson. Hard fought and well earned.
I reject your reality and replace it with my own.
