Skip Bayless

The Clemson Tigers’ come-from-behind 35-31 win in the college football national championship game Monday surprised many, considering how dominant Alabama was early on. It made a lot of the tweets from when the Crimson Tide were up 14-0 appear rather frozen in hindsight. However, one man’s red-hot takes on Clemson throughout the night stood out. That would be Fox Sports’ Skip Bayless, who recently insisted “I have consistently been correct with all these outrageous takes.” Let’s see how correct Bayless was this time around, starting with an early take on the Tigers’ mistakes:

He then went after Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson:

(Watson finished with 420 passing yards and four touchdowns accounted for in what some have called the best championship performance since Vince Young in 2006.)

And congrats to you, Skip, for once again consistently being correct with all your outrageous takes.
