    Tebow and Burrow both had one quality that counts more than anything, "Character"!

      Kellerman v. Tebow is like a one-armed blind man v. Mohammed Ali. He brings a knife to a gun fight.

          Wrong again. He looked pitiful. But hey burrow dissected clemson

            clown....Burrow was the best all year, but he wouldn't be in the national title game? This guy was also wrong about the Patriots last season as well

              I like how he mentioned Lamar Jackson. I'm sure LSU fans remember how he did against LSU in a bowl game. Let's not forget how Mahomes faired also.
              Looking back now Lawrence was demonstrably the worst player on the field that night.

                          Lawrence was 18/37 for 234 yards. Burrow was 31/49 for 463 yards. This is why y'all still making the big bucks, right?

                                    How could anyone go against Burrow in this game this season? All I heard was what Lawrence did last season.. Okay? What did that matter in this game? It never mattered what he did last season. This was clearly Burrow's and LSU's year and nobody was stopping them. What more did Burrow need to show or prove for everyone to on board? He had the greatest season in the entire history of college football.. and yet people still were picking Clemson and Lawrence? I was nervous about potentially playing Clemson until I saw them play Ohio St. They were never going to be good enough to beat LSU after that. Great team, but LSU was on another level.

                                        2) taxes
                                        3) Joe Burrow will obliterate your defense

                                                    LSU was battle tested Clemson had by far the easiest schedule out of the playoff teams.

                                                      GavinGavynLyric I agree. I don’t understand how these “experts” call Clemsons D the best.... I will pick the battle tested team every time!
