Three games beyond the loss to Pittsburgh and Clemson captures its second ACC Championship in a row. It has been 28 years since that last occurred! It was a hard-fought contest against a very good Virginia Tech team with the Clemson prevailing by a score of 42-35. There was a bit of the “Cardiac Cats” in the game, but it was really just a great game played by two very good football teams.
So now we’re in the playoffs, in rarified air for the second year in a row. For all who have lived through down years in their football programs, take heart. This kind of success is worth the wait. Football, in some ways, is a reflection of life. And as in life, the highs are much better than the lows. The motto…..”Don’t give up! Keep trying!”
The four teams in the playoffs are #1 Alabama, #2 Clemson, #3 Ohio State and #4 Washington. Under the playoff system, #1 plays #4 and #2 plays #3 in the semi-finals. So Clemson will play Ohio State and Alabama will play Washington. Both games will be played on December 31st and the winners will for the national championship on January 9th.
Make no mistake. None of these teams got here by accident or fluke. The playoff system is proving to do as intended. That is, to have the best four teams in college football meet to decide the champion. It’s great sport in a fair system.
Whatever happens, Tiger fans can be very proud of the university, the football program, the coaches, the players and the fans for sure!
