Neutral college football observers have joined Alabama fans in blaming Drake for the Tide's 44-16 loss to Clemson on Monday night in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

In the days leading into Monday's CFP national title game, rapper Drake was spotted wearing an Alabama hoody. The final game of the college football season didn't live up to the hype of it being close, but it surely made a nationwide statement.

Given Saban's four national titles this decade, it's hard to argue with Swinney. Ivy League rivals Yale (1894) and Penn (1897) were the last teams to win 15 games in a season.

"Proud. Proud not just of what you do. but who you are".

While the main takeaway from this game for fans of Texas football, or just college football fans in general, is the domination that Clemson displayed against the juggernaut that was Alabama, that wasn't the only thing to notice.
