OK, some people might have screwed up the Clemson-Oklahoma prediction, but any doubts we may have had about the Tigers’ chances tonight in the BCS Championship game were erased once we saw the Tigers were getting seven points against Alabama. Seven points! Vegas may as well have said something about Dabo Swinney’s mama or brought up Clemsoning.
Oklahoma, if you’ll recall, was favored by 3.5 going into the Orange Bowl, and Swinney made sure his players didn’t forget it before the game and reminded rest of the country about it after with this totally Dabo post game interview.
“I told them, we ain’t favored to win the damn game but we ain’t no underdog! Nobody believes in this team except these guys,” he huffed before then proclaiming that God wanted Clemson to win. The ACC still sucks, but nobody puts Dabo in a touchdown-underdog corner. Poor Nick Saban.
