Hats Off To Clemson

Tuesday, January 8, 2019

Not only did Clemson come to play, they made it look easy against a great team. 

The best part of the championship game in my eyes was the fact Dabo Swinney, his team and fan base did it with class before, during and after the game. 

Hopefully other coaches and programs took some notes. 

Once again, congrats to the Clemson Tigers and their fans on a 15-0 season and a nearly flawless title game.
