Those were some pretty obvious pick plays. It seems like every big game the refs are too scared to flag anything and whoever takes the most advantage wins.

Good game. Pretty obvious pick, but they're never called. Lotta credit to Clemson for hanging in there and outlasting Alabama.

I think if Clemson doesn't run the pick play, Bama just tackles the receiver to get DPI, and they keep doing it until the clock reaches zero and Clemson has to choose between going for broke with no time left or taking the chip shot FG and going to OT.

I know the refs can award the TD there if they think it's blatant, but we know that's never happening.

I thought for sure that's what they were going to do after the first PI. Might as well force Clemson to make that choice, although I suspect they would have gone for it.

It looked to me like the Bama CB at least tried doing it on the guy setting the pick, but he missed.

I didn't buy the notion that nobody could play with Alabama. I was right.

I also didn't buy the notion that Clemson was the real deal. I was wrong.

Great game. Congrats to Clemson.
