    Clemson had to be the most improved team since mid-season. They utterly flattened Notre Dame last week, but that wasn't *only* because Notre Dame didn't belong in the playoffs. It was also because Clemson is really, really good.

    That QB is going to be an NFL superstar.

    Anyway, looks like Alabama quit on this one. Down 21 right now but could lose by 40 if not careful.

    I'm even more impressed by Justyn Ross, the freshman wide receiver.

    I think the refs should call TKO. Alabama is barely defending itself now. It's been a while since I've seen Alabama on the business end of an ass whoopin like this.

    I was grinning from ear to ear watching that smug, arrogant Nick Satan (no typo) squirm the whole game. Barring the unforeseen, if that Clemson freshman QB isn't gone after his sophomore year I'll be surprised.

    Based on the current rules, he cannot leave until after his Junior season.

    Looks like in 2 years he'll be the best college FB QB prospect since Andrew Luck.

    I saw an article somewhere on the Web, Bleacher Report maybe, that's already calling him the best Pro QB prospect ever. (That was before the NC game.) No such thing as getting ahead of things, I guess.

    He'd need to put some weight before he gets to the NFL, they'll break him like a twig at the next level.

    I suspect that this will happen naturally, as he just turned 19.

    Anyway, he's lanky but IMO already has an NFL body. He looks smaller because of his height. But he's 6-6 and 215. For comparison, Matt Ryan is 6-4 and 215. Eli Manning is 6-5 and 218.

    Considering his age, I'm sure that Trevor Lawrence will be at least 10 lbs. heavier when he's drafted. I don't think anybody would consider him undersized at 6-6 225, if that's what he ends up being.

    He looks damn good, another season or two of improvement and there will be a tanking epidemic.

    I hope the Giants still suck. Management has given me no reason to expect that they won't, so fingers crossed.

    I would add that Tom Terrific was tall and lanky and very unathletic.

    I thought of that kid from Dazed and Confused as well but couldn't remember the character name. Spicoli is also a good call.
