Clemson shut out Ohio State, came from behind to beat Alabama in the 2016 Playoff, and is one surprise season away from a potential three-match with Bama. The Tigers are not a historical blue blood on par with Bama and Ohio State, but they are in this conversation in no small part because of one player: Deshaun Watson.
Just as the 73-win Warriors in 2016 found themselves helpless against LeBron James, Alabama had no answers for Watson. In two games, Watson put up 825 yards passing with seven touchdowns and only one pick. He added in 116 yards rushing.
Alabama and Ohio State cannot monopolize talent, so one transcendent player can beat the best. Put a player like Watson in the right scheme and with good teammates, and even Saban will be reduced to surprise onside kicks.
As his workouts began to show results, Roberts sent letters to the Hawks, Spurs, and Clippers all teams he once had cups of coffee with nearly four decades ago, pitching a Summer League roster spot. He also contacted Los Angeles Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson. Why? Because he played Packers Cheap Jerseys against Johnson in 1978, back when Johnson was a teenage star at Michigan State.
Roberts said he knows teams have received his letters because people have signed for them, and he was hoping for Johnson’s “support” after fondly recalling their their showdown 39 years prior.
But the teams themselves tell a different tale. Despite his Vintage MLB Jerseys Cheap hard work and ample usage of the postage system, Roberts never heard back from anyone.
