            Going into this game, I heard a lot about if it came down to picking one quarterback to be rattled, it would be Burrow because Lawrence had already been there. I guess we know that answer.

                What went wrong? Clemson's soft schedule which occurs again next year. They are overrated.

                  He was rushed he was harassed and he was hit all game long . He could never get comfortable. He never had time to sit in the pocket and look around. If he did sit in the pocket and look around he got hit . He just ran into a buzz saw like everyone did that played LSU this year .LSU defense was better then the media said they were . When rankings committee took the number 1 ranking from LSU and the news media said it was because of the defense. All the news outlets said it too. They could not win it all because LSU defense was not championship material and to weak and gave up to many points. Because the media fell in love with Ohio st defense and made them #1 and forgot about ever one else, That pissed them off. That made them mad and after that LSU defense played likes out and with a attitude all the way till the end. They got disrespected and proved every body wrong.

                            Remember what happened to Bama last year. Clemson eating humble pie like Bama did last year LSU had better team like Clemson did last year

                              He's over rated af. This is what happens when you have the easiest schedule In the country playing unranked teams Clemson is done they won't make it back into another championship

                                    What went wrong was that Clemson played cupcake teams all season so they weren't used to playing someone good.

                                          Hopefully you'll play other than D-2 teams....You really don't know how good you are you are until you are tested.

                                              Ah... I'll tell ya what went wrong... Clemson played a superior team that beat them. Clemson's only challenge this year was Ohio state. LSU played 5 to 6 top tier teams prior to this game.. They played at this level all season long... and had to to make it to the championship... This win over Clemson was the exclamation point.. to their spectacular season.

                                                    If Trevor was on point they would have beat LSU was not LSU defense.

                                                      They just played a better team. Plus Clemson wasn't as good like in the previous year. They were still good, but LSU just had a supreme season.

                                                        The key was they shut down Clemson wide receivers just like Ohio State did

                                                              That's why LSU was in the Natty and destroyed Clemson. Of course Clemson will be back because they don't play anybody. Their toughest regular season game will be Notre Dame and everyone knows how overrated they are.

That’s one and done season for LSU for a long time. Clemson will be there for the next 5 years at least. Recruiting is what matters and culture is what Clemson offers that is valued the most by recruiting prospects and their families.

Auburn could have to if they had a decent qb. We shut bama down, lsu won in a shootout, love to see joe blow play that team from last year. Nasty!

                                                                            • Dennis D Diamond

Maybe if the Clemson receivers got open for those plays the went bad, TL would have not had to somehow get the ball through the defenders hands first. The LSU defenders were grabbing Clemson defenders the entire game and no PI was called except for some blatant ones. This didn’t happen in the 2018 game. He did overthrow some passes but Clemson receivers should have caught some of the ones that hit their hands too......also didn’t happen last year. I think they were still a little beat up from the Ohio State game and then had to face an even tougher LSU defense on the road. No excuses. They lost that game and they could have one it. Play calling was weak at key points so the blame is both on the field and the sidelines. AJ Terrell got burned the entire evening on defense...geez.

                                                                              • Marty Brown

                                                                                • Hayden

As a result Clemson won, and was sent to play LSU and lost as everyone knew they would, since the only team that could beat LSU was prevented from doing so.
