1) Clemson wins despite being -2 in turnovers and having a seriously inferior punting game - thus losing the field position battle in a major way for most of the game. Even those things up and Clemson might have won by 3 touchdowns.
2) It took an incredible (2nd half) performance by a very very good team to beat an Alabama team that fought with one arm tied behind its back. Damn they're good.
Will be interesting to see how Alabama's loss of its aura of invincibility plays out during the final 3 weeks of 2017 recruiting. (No, I don't expect commits to defect, but just maybe it influences a certain 5-star DL's assessment of the schools he is considering).
Surprised no one has posted any of these. A few very interesting quotables from Hackett:
Jim Hackett says Michigan is "working on a schedule change for football" that he thinks fans will really like.— Alejandro Zúñiga (@ByAZuniga) February 3, 2016
I asked if the football schedule change involved renewing a rivalry, and Jim Hackett smiled and said he couldn't comment any further.— Alejandro Zúñiga (@ByAZuniga) February 4, 2016
Lastly, I have to imagine this is a shot at Clemson. Perhaps Ole Miss as well. Can't say it would be entirely out of character for either...
Hackett said he thinks Rashan Gary was offered "incentives" during his recruitment & is pleased he chose the right path–a Michigan education— Alejandro Zúñiga (@ByAZuniga) February 4, 2016
Title says it all...
First Zeke Pike and now Kelly, seems that a lot of the QBs from the 2012 class that we were recruiting have struggled to adjust to college thus far.
Tajh Boyd vs Braxton Miller. Lots of offense expected.
Let's hope Clemson's offense shows up for their bowl game this year.
Line: OSU -2.5
2014 Orange Bowl final score
Big night for Clemson offense
Sammy Watkins. 16 receptions for 227 yards (an Orange Bowl and Clemson record) and two touchdowns. What a beast!
Tajh Boyd also set an Orange Bowl record with 486 total yards.
I heard this was the first time Ohio lost when they score 35+ points. (insert sad panda here)
Michigan has made the top 3 for Kendall Fuller. Most consider it to be a two way race between Va Tech and Clemson, with Michigan in 3rd. Most analysts are betting that he goes to Va Tech, and I'm inclined to agree. But if we get him on campus again, who knows what could happen?
Anyways, the information is publicly available in the title of the article on the Michigan Rivals' site. Just click on the link: http://michigan.rivals.com/
