    This is why OU got rid of Venables, he doesnt know how to defend the spread.

    I'm a Lsu fan and I am addressing this comment to other Lsu fans in here leaving negative comments . We got to remember that we haven't won a natty in 14 years. So that doesn't give us any room to down play Clemson because they are a very good team with class. I am so proud to say that I was excited to be able to say we played against a magnificent team... GREAT JOB to Clemson...Hopefully we will meet again next year....Geaux Tigers

    Alabama would have given a far better game than Oklahoma, and probably Clemson. They lost by 5 points to LSU in their league, and three to Auburn dropping from 3 to ((13))?, while Georgia is blown out by LSU "and" losses to...South Carolina only goes from 4 to 6 place? Good work committee,... good work.

    Dabo knows they will be back next year so he’s not that upset. He’ll, they will be back the next 5 years. LSU?? One and done for a long time. Alabama will beat LSU next year and beat them badly, too.

    Love the attempt to rephrase words in French. LSU and Louisiana is about as French as McDonald’s fries. Guess they need some redeeming quality down there in the swamps.

    Rumors were all over NOLA the morning of the game that Trevor was seen exiting a well-known French Quarter gay bar in full leather with a collar and chain at 3 AM that morning. That's not how you should prepare for a game of this magnitude.

    Neutral fans only respond to this comment. No tigers lol. I believe LSU won only becuz they were at home. Clemsiinn is the better football team to me. Better in everything except deep balls. I believe LSU defense played above their heads becuz of the state of Louisiana. Now let me hear opinions. One more thing it was a 3 point game when the MLB got disqualified..............17 pt win was misleading

    He's a class act because they lost, if they would've won he would be cocky and bragging like last year. He didn't make excuses that's a good thing

    Boo hoo, Dancing coach: YOU DID NOT DESERVE TO BE IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE FIRST PLACE!!! A weak ACC schedule plus the weak non-conference schedule, plus the refs in the semifinals equals a weak endgame.

    I'm an avid LSU Tigers fan. I've not watched a lot of Clemson and have not been very familiar with their coach or Trevor Lawrence. What a class act their team seems to be! Great culture. Their coach, Swinney, is a super class act and you can tell that he loves the Lord and brings that to the culture. He obviously attracts young men of the same mind and soul. Trevor Lawrence is also a wonderful role model and a classy young man. He owned his shortcomings and speaks with great professionalism and leadership. Hats off to them. Can't think of a better competitor to have played in the big game. Newfound respect for the other Tigers, Clemson. Finally, congrats to my LSU Tigers... Geaux Tigers!

    Yeah - “I’m incredibly thankful for the fact that we play in such a weak, pathetic conference that we NEVER have to worry about injuries EVER - thank God that Ohio State utterly blew the chance to put us away by halftime, just like Alabama did a couple of years ago in the semis - fortunately, we play in the pansy-a** ACC, where a good high school team would be competitive - we’ll see you back here next year, after we cruise, unbeaten and uninjured, to this point, and only have to win two tough games all year long, with our healthy, full starting lineup from Game 1, in order to be called “National Champs” - PLEASE don’t put us in the SEC - PLEASE..............”

    As a Bama fan and a huge Dabo fan since his days at Bama that’s about as classy a post game interview from a losing team ive ever seen. Nice job to coach O as I really like him too.

    OSU beat Clemson, and then pathetic officiating awarded them the game. Ohio state would've given LSU a better opponent. that's why poor officiating ruined this final game.

    Nice seeing the whiner Dabo lose. Always complaining about he and his team don’t get enough attention. His QB even disrespected Joe Burrow when the game was over. Lawrence knows Burrow’s game translates to the NFL and his doesn’t.

    No drugs to help y'all win. Juiced Tigers. you only beat Bama with drugs. and 2016 you only beat them on a missed call. so, fuck Juiced Tigers. (Also) y'all didn't play any team this season only team that almost give y'all a lost was North Carolina. Fuck the Juiced Tigers.

    Ohio State would have given LSU a much better game. They matched up better. Not saying they would have won but they were better than Clemson.

    Clemson doesn't even need to play their joke 2020 schedule. Let's just pencil them into the playoffs rested and healthy again. It's the one thing you will NEVER hear a Clemson coach or player say, 'we really needed the break to get rested'. When your hardest November game is Mayberry State, you don't need rest. I will say Dabo is a class guy and seems to run a clean, class program. I'm not a hater, but I am a college football fan.

    • littlegmod
      littlegmod 12 days ago

      Ok. So out of curiosity, what do suggest that they do? Granted, the ACC is a weak conference right now. Should Clemson come over to the SEC? How about sending some SEC teams to the ACC. What do you think should be done to remedy this problem?

      LSU definitely showed Lawrence’s weakness for sure he has no pressure stamina to be stable enough to control his situational awareness and pass control to target under extreme constant attack .... NFL will be a wake up call for him one day.... if he doesn’t learn now... LSU was just an eye opener.... wakey wakey....
