So Clemson should have won by six but lost by six ... I wonder why that could have been ... [exaggeratedly points directly at Points Per Opportunity] ... nope ... no idea whatsoever.
I'll say this for FSU: the 'Noles slammed the door like a champion. They should have lost ... they should have been down double digits in the fourth quarter ... but they weren't. And while it took them more than 60 minutes to find an opportunity to put the game away, when they got it, they did it. Eddie Goldman was amazing, Rashad Greene was Rashad Greene, and that was somehow enough.
