    It's really that simple and any other hand wringing about who "got the easy draw" is nothing but whining.

    The right four teams made the playoffs, and the team that won the national title went 15-0 and had only one close game. Like it or not, there is a strong argument for Clemson's 2018 team as the best CFB team of all-time.
    Ahh yes... explaining why the Alabama players were probably more tired than Clemson players is whining.

    This is why some of us can’t discuss a loss. Others decide whatever is mentioned is “whining” or “excuse making.”

    No I complained before and after the Oklahoma game was played.

    And if you want to crown Clemson best of all time, you go right ahead. But you don't believe it anymore than I do.

    I remember that '95 Nebraska team and what they did to a very good Florida team who I just KNEW was going to win that game. I made the mistake of not paying attention to what they had been doing all year. And after looking at what Clemson has done this year, it is similar but really not comparable as far as the overall talent on that Cornhusker team. They scored over 70 twice and the closest game they had was a 14 point win. Sure there were other great teams, and some of them Alabama ones under Bear Bryant, who I would say were maybe even as good as this Clemson team, overall. The problem now is in the style of play, with much of the offensive play-calling and "schemes" done with a lot of smoke and mirrors and out-smarting the Defensive coordinator's strategies. Almost like running trick plays which nowadays are accepted as the norm, even in college ball. Probably started with the wide open Big 12 style and has carried over even to the SEC.

    they only beat a and m by 2 points. and had to have a lot of help from the refs to get that win.
