Listen: Clemson, Dabo Sweeney And Lawrence discussed on Gary Jeff Walker
"To the near side the right for more than the completion of TJ chase. Josh job the tackle in space near the. Nearside numbers. But the clock is the issue now five twenty three and running fourth quarter and leading forty four to sixteen. Here's the thing. I really liked it. Trevor is doing right now they're believing clock, but they're not bleeding it standing in the line of scrimmage. He's keeping them in a modified huddle to the very last minute. So when they break the huddle, they go to the line of scrimmage able to snap and run the play in rhythm, really smart by quarterback to do that rather than wait at the line of scrimmage. Fleet. Well, this is a staff that recruits as well as anybody, but they can really coach the football part of it as well. Third down and six it's a shotgun. Run for Lawrence. Any powers for the first down. They had them wrapped up about two yard shar shy of the line. He just kept turned his legs forward and took Shaheem Carter the safety for a ride and a first down at the thirty one yard line of Alabama with four thirty five to go. We talk about the many connections between these two programs the top three winningest head coaches in Clemson football history or all Alabama grab Frank Howard. The legend one sixty five year, the great connection a bear Bryant Davos about to win is one hundred and sixteenth. Daddy, Ford number three. At a national championship winning coach that once in the first back in nineteen Eighty-one Adam choice runs off the left side for two four minutes to go until they'll celebrate another national championship in the upstate of South Carolina. Right now JC chalk on the field. The. Nephew grandson, a gene stallings, and we'll wait a minute backup wide receiver in the holder on their PAT's field goals. He's in a wide receiver. Lawrence skin bleeding, the play clock. It's down to five three and a half left of the game design quarterback run to the wet takes off runs over his lead. Blocker to get a first down wall might be out at the end. There's a big pile or maybe just Lawrence continue to go. I'm going to question that play call. You've won the national championship. This game is over this guy is the franchise quarterback were that I tore fed your title next year. I don't think I'd get a him. Seriously hurt the situation. Some of the starting off of Lyman coming off the field now to hubs on the near sideline. How good is that? That's like bringing guys out of a basketball game to the ground could cheer for your office of line who has really played. Well, if protecting your quarterback, they get a standing ovation coming off the field. Mitch Hyatt playing his last game fifty seventh career scar tonight. All american. That's more starts than any position the constant history. Justin, false finale, the centers come out. The celebration continues timeout called. Tony Elliott offensive coordinator told us before the Cotton Bowl in Dallas in the semifinal. When Clemson really took the step to being a team could challenge to win the national championship every year. It was when their offensive line now moved to that caliber for a long time to bet. A lot of talent defense a lot of skill players on offense, but the offensive line was dominant. Now, it can be why really felt again this is the fourth year in a row clemson's been in the playoffs. And as I watched them this year. This is the best offensive line. They had her by knew about their defensive line, and maybe working against that defensive line day in and day out does that offense of live. But it's the most physical grew up front that they've had in the playoff era. Let's check in with Holly. Rowe during this time out forty five to go and Clemson leading forty four to sixty and Holly. Well, guys when you talk to Dabo Sweeney. He told us for a long time that this was the best team he's ever had. But it also had the best leadership twenty six seniors every single one of those seniors got to vote for captain before the season started. This has been great leadership in moments where they felt the season could slip away after the transfer of Kelly. Bryant was the senior leadership that stepped up and kept this team on course. And now to see those senior celebrating down here in this moment. All twenty-six guys had such an impact on this. Clemson team, Dabo Sweeney said it best we just love each other. He had a team meeting yesterday with all these seniors because he just wanted to love up on him. One more time before they went out in this game. With this win. The Clemson senior class will have fifty five wins that will match this Alabama senior class, and they will tie for the most wins by a class in division one football history with fifty five apiece and two national championships. The piece we talk about has Clemson closed the gap."
