  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.

Exactly Triv and SeyeckuB.  I won't dog on Lawrence too much either, but he does have the benefit of playing against the weak-ass ACC.  He did play well against Bama a couple times, but I'm not so convinced Bama has been "Bama" for a few years now.  

He's a great kid and clearly has a great competitor's heart, but I'm not at all ready to say he's this elite QB.  Joe Burrow showed he was in a different echelon than TL in his closing season.

Also, this new 11W article seems to confirm "before his senior season," AKA summer.

I hear you and that is possible, but I see a one loss Clemson who's won 12 straight, including a conference championship, having zero chance of getting left out.  The narrative won't be how bad their loss was, the narrative will be how they've really come together as a team blah blah blah.  They've lost to Syracuse more mid-season and still gotten in the playoffs.

Don't get me wrong, this is good.  But this really doesn't change Clemson's path to the playoff at all.  They can drop this game very early, win out, and will still be in.  Georgia on the other hand, either has to win this game, or essentially be flawless through an SEC schedule that at a minimum has Florida (likely good) and SEC West champ in the SEC championship game.

I'm only counting 5 bowl wins since 1995...Hawaii, Miami, Rutgers, LSU, LSU.  They did beat TAMU in 1994.

But I'm totally relying on this source:
