2019-20 College Football Playoff National Championship Thread.

The College Football Playoff National Championship game between #1 LSU and #3 Clemson, January 13th, 2020 at the Superdome in New Orleans, 8:00 pm on ESPN. It seems like forever since the semifinal games were played. I'm glad tomorrow is the big game, but it seems like Saturday would have been a better day to play the game instead of a Monday night.

I think LSU is probably better, but +5.5 or +6 with Dabo/Lawrence/Clemson and their experience is way too hard to pass up.

O/U at the point I fall asleep for this likely 4 hour game on a work-night? Mid-way through the 3rd quarter. Hate the Monday night final. If they waited this long to play it, might as well have just pushed it back 5 more days to Saturday night.

Wow, unless LSU can punch back, Clemson is about to take over this game.

The LSU defense has been getting better and better all season. They have been doing a great job keeping Lawrence and co in check.

Bengals fans should be happy. You are about to get your first superstar QB since Boomer.

SEC-SEC-SEC. Finished 7-2 in BGs. They're not overrated this year.

It's junk like this is why I am glad Clemson lost. They have walked around with their noses in the air the past couple of years. The team and it's arrogant fanbase needed to be brought down to earth.

As I anticipated, a ridiculously long game. I zonked out after 35-25, so I think I barely made my Over.

Congrats to LSU - a very well-earned title. Perhaps the most impressive individual season ever for a player.

For the part I saw - Trevor didn't play well. Too many overthrows. And not enough running by Clemson. Not just to mix things up but to give their defense a break. Sounds like it was more of that after 35-25.

Very strange game. 67 points scored yet there were 16 punts.

Still seems super weird to have this game on so long after the semifinals. I completely forgot about it, and the only reason I knew it was on was because of this board.

Burrow is totally legit. That guy will be a star at the next level. All he wants to do is win and destroy teams.

Lawrence I'm not so convinced about. I see bust written all over him.

I'm just glad Lawrence isn't eligible so they're not conflicted. Now watch them take a lineman or something.

On a side note, Coach O dodged a bullet by not being rehired by USC. From all accounts that also gave him the self reflection he needed to do what he did with LSU.

Coach O's turning point was hiring Brady and admitting 4 yards and a cloud of dust does not win college championships. A modern offense did wonders for this team.

I enjoyed watching Trevor Lawrence be Dazed and Confused most of the game.

Nice job LSU. Left no doubt who was #1 this year.

Who is going to win it next year?

Unfortunately, Clemson is the heavy favorite to win it all next season.

In large part because once again they will have far and away the easiest path (schedule) to the playoff.

There is almost zero chance that Clemson will not once again make it into the playoffs for next year. But it was evident last Monday that they could not stand up to a more battle tested LSU despite an overall roster that has better recruits, so the cream puff schedule didn't do them any favors there.
