    I especially liked the Outback Bowl win over Michigan State. That was a football clinic and finally the offense played up to its potential.

    I'm with OP on this, 2008 Clemson. When I saw our guys come out and saw how different they looked, then played, I knew we were going on to something big. Saw Julio and Mark play for the first time that day, too.

    I was at that game and it was a great one. But I gotta say the blackout.

    There are so many to choose from. But I'm going to pick this year's SEC title game against Georgia. Under Coach Saban, Alabama's MO has been to start fast, overwhelm the opponent and get up by 2 or 3 scores. From there, it's like a python squeezing the life out of its victim. But the SEC CG against Georgia was different. Georgia was playing their best football game in maybe 9 or 10 years. They had an NC in their sights, and we were struggling and in trouble. Suddenly, it looked like the tables had been turned on Alabama and we were the victim of the hungry python. Then, we changed up the offensive gameplan, began to run the ball down their throats, and overcame their best effort in a decade.

    That was a team overcoming great adversity.

    Re: Aside from the Title games, what's your favorite game of the CNS era?

    I have to go with the 2008 Clemson game as well. The process had started to take hold. We played like it was the 10th game of the season not the first. Crisp, no stupid penalties, a team that was hitting on all cylinders. Quite the comparison to the early season games under Shula, where we would had 12 men on the field, delay of game because we couldn't get the play from the side line in time. You could tell that Saban had the team and staff ready to play on day one.

    Re: Aside from the Title games, what's your favorite game of the CNS era?

    Clemson and Georgia and Tennessee and LSU and Auburn in 2008.
    Virginia Tech and LSU and Florida in 2009.
    Michigan St in 2010.
    Arkansas and Florida in 2011.
    Michigan and LSU and Auburn and Georgia in 2012.

    There are just so many...Clemson really sticks out. We were so dominant and it had been so long since we looked that good as a team. Watching Julio and Ingram break out as freshman...Awesome. Sure has been a fun run.

    I actually liked the 09 SEC champ game better than the 09 national championship game. It was so great dethroning them.

    Re: Aside from the Title games, what's your favorite game of the CNS era?

    My choice is 2007 Arkansas. Not our best team and not the best season, but it showed me that Saban would make the tough calls when games were tight. Most in the stadium felt that kicking a FG that late was a bad move, but coach had confidence in the D and believed in the players to make plays. It was the first time I felt like we were coached like an NFL team. I know the 08 Clemson game was the real coming out party, but that game was a turning point in my feeling about where our program was headed.

    Not counting any title (BCS or SEC) games, it's easily the 2008 Blackout game. Just being in the stadium and seeing how the team dominated from the word go was awesome.

    That one was awesome, but also made me sad at the same time because you saw what the team could be. Btw it was the Capitol One Bowl.
