On Monday, January 7th, the Clemson Tigers soundly defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide for college football’s national championship. After the game, Clemson head coach, Dabo Swinney, was interviewed just moments after the game ended. During the interview, Coach Swinney made a couple of statements that left no doubt as to who he thought ultimately deserved the credit for the win. In his words, “All the credit goes to the good Lord, #1!” Later in the interview he added, “Only God can orchestrate this!”
