Life, like football, is filled with peaks and valleys. Perhaps that's one reason we love the game so much: Football imitates the highs and lows of life compressed into a 60 minute microcosm of the human experience.
So what did the warriors in the Clemson/Alabama game remind us of?
No matter how overwhelming the current situation looks, never ever give up. As quarterback DeShawn Watson said in the huddle at the beginning of Clemson's final drive, "Don't panic." Because anything can happen. And with one second left on the clock, it did.
As Dabo Sweeney said, "It was our night. It was our time." And for the Alabama fans? There's always next year.
