Low Tide for Justin Thomas as Alabama gets crushed by Clemson

Low Tide for Justin Thomas as Alabama gets crushed by Clemson

On Monday, the Tigers became the first college football team to win 15 games in a season since the 19th century. That's what some American sports fans seem to think after Clemson defeated the no.1 ranked Crimson Tide for the title.

Clemson's 28-point margin was the largest against a Nick Saban-coached Alabama team. First 15-0 team - to beat Notre Dame and to beat Alabama to do it.

Alabama couldn't do anything after halftime as the Tigers went on to score 13 more unanswered points in the third quarter. "But I'm just telling you if I can do it, and those Clemson Tigers can do it, anybody can do it if you just have a belief in yourself and what you are doing and you surround yourself with great young people that are passionate about winning". That's because the rapper - much like his favorite team - got absolutely pummeled by Twitter for seemingly playing a role in the Crimson Tide getting destroyed by Clemson for the national title. "We didn't do the things we needed to do to execute and be successful in this game, and that's all it is".

Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa, the hero of last year's national championship game, threw two interceptions in the first half and was unable to lead his team to pay-dirt over the final 44 minutes of the game.

Clemson's domination was such that it turned away Alabama three times on fourth down in the second half, including on a fake field goal and after the Tide had second-and-goal at the 1-yard line early in the fourth quarter. Overall, the sophomore went 22 for 34 for 295 yards and two touchdowns in the game. We shot ourselves in the foot by me throwing that interception for a touchdown, and then not finishing drives the way we wanted to.

"Good is not good enough, " Tagovailoa said.

Clemson hit Alabama with a 31-point first half, capitalizing on the Tide's mistakes and unleashing Lawrence's rocket arm. That led to Travis Etienne's third touchdown of the half, a 5-yard shovel pass from Lawrence.
