    Well...it's halftime.

    I would love to see Clemson take Alabama down off of their "high perch", but I don't know if Clemson has enough for them. If they do, they've got 30 minutes to show it.

    BTW, this is coming from a life-long Florida Gator fan.

    No dog in this fight. But Alabama's offense has been terrible tonight. Their defense though...wow. Very tough.

    Clemson "Wins" with one second left on the clock!!! One of the best game's I've ever watched. A super come from behind win for Clemson. Bama was King in the first half, but Clemson was King in the half that count's!!!

    Bama did have a late drive for a touchdown to take the lead back, but they left Clemson with just a little to much time on the clock, and Clemson made them pay. First time Clemson has beat Bama since 1903? I think they said. Over a Century anyway. Wow what else can you say. break em all Jeff

    Alabama demonstrated that you don't need a quarterback to win in the SEC.

    Was on ESPN like a whole lot of other games these days, I was not able to watch it.
    I was pulling for the tide due to them being an SEC team.
    Hats off to Clemson for beating them.

    Once Bama lost their big premier back Scarbrough(who scored twice), Bama's offense was in deep do-do.

    The stands were packed - and I heard a sports news caster say that seats were $3,000 dollars each. Wondering if that's true.

    What a game!

    This was, by far, the best game, pro or college, that I've seen this season.

    Had a few buddies who flew down to Tampa on a last minute whim for the game. Took pockets full of cash hoping to buy tickets from scalpers. Couldn't find any available tickets. Tailgated at the stadium and then wound up watching the game at an Applebee's.

    He was being shutdown long before he got hurt, never seen a player stay in the "tent" as long as he did. Quarterback proved he belonged on the field, freshmen or not, last lead by Bama showed what he is made of.

    Bama defense, just got worn out by the start of the forth quarter(Clemson's game plan). Big mistake leaving 2 minutes for Clemson to respond AS they have been showing Bama's coaching staff the whole second half.

    No skin in this game, I was cheering for the Husky's but they failed to execute.

    Now, what will happen next year????? It will depend who's stay's outta jail more or less and who doesn't jump to the National Felon's League!! IMHO

    Don't watch much football but definitely enjoyed this one. Would hate to be the guy who took the unsportsman like conduct penalty.
