Clemson fans and players are understandably upset about last year’s National Championship Game. The Tigers had a strong chance to win the game going into the fourth quarter. That was, until Nick Saban went completely out of character and called for an onside kick.
The Crimson Tide recovered the ball and went 51 yards for a score two plays later. The rest of that game was never quite the same as the Tigers couldn’t recover from the trickery and lost 45-40 in a tightly contested game.
There’s at least one person other than a fan who’s still angry with the call and it’s none other than Clemson coach Dabo Swinney himself:
Hopefully he can use that anger and channel it into some masterful play-calling of his own. Maybe he’ll get the last laugh out of it all and win the game on a trick play of his own at a crucial time.
