Clemson Wins - National Championship Recap

January 12, 2017

Clemson wins the 2017 National Championship in dramatic fashion.  Was it a great game or just an ok game with a great finish?  We'll pose that question to Brad Senkiw who covers the Tigers for the Independent Mail.  Plus...

  • What was his mindset when Alabama went up 14-0?
  • The most telling stat from the game
  • Was this a true upset?
  • and can Clemson reload after losing a bunch of stars and make it back to the playoffs next year?

We'll also discuss the Chargers move to LA (and new boring logo), and why the NFL might have a popularity issue in the coming years.

And of course we'll hand out "Who Needs a Drink and Who's Buying".  Hint: it was an easy one this week.
