    Alabama's playing in it's 4th CFP National Championship game in a row. And Clemson in its 3rd in 4 years. That means this is the 3rd time we get Alabama v Clemson in the finals, in the last 4 years.

    Think the college football playoff system is still that superior to the BCS system? I still do for sure. But these results make it pretty clear a few programs in the country are just that much better than everyone else.

    Time will change that, I suppose. The Tide can't roll forever..

    Alabama won it in 2015 over Clemson 45-40. Then Clemson won 35-31 in 2016. (Skip 2017 where Alabama beat Georgia in OT 26-23). Now for 2018.. how's the tiebreaker going to play out?

    I'm real curious to see if Clemson can keep up with Tua. He played basically a perfect game in the Orange Bowl. Only missed 3 passes. Threw 4 tds. They put up 45, right around their season average. Clemson only put up 30 and 3 TDs over Notre Dame.

    If I had to call it, I say Alabama wins this, by a touchdown or two. High scoring game though, no doubt.

    Crazy it just took 1 year for Clemson to make it back after losing Deshaun Watson. I thought that was what made them elite. Apparently its way beyond that. Can't help but root for Tua in this one though. Saban may be annoying, but Tua is really fun to watch.

    Straight up coin flip game for me. I've thought all year long Clemson is easily the #1 team in the country. Alabama plays best in big games.. Has the makings of another classic; can't imagine a blow out from either team.

    35 points in the first 18 or so minutes... Damn. Didn't expect that. Good one so far. Clemson's up 21-16 atm.

    I wasn't expecting such a one-sided game. With a final of 44-16, Clemson absolutely crushed Alabama.... No two ways about it. What a night for Trevor Lawrence. Freshman QB throwing for 347 yards and 3 TDs is super impressive.
