In the end, LSU was simply too good.
Ed Orgeron's squad rolled over Clemson in Monday night's National Championship game by a final score of 42-25. Perhaps the most stunning development was how erratic Trevor Lawrence was all night. He was sailing passes and looked alarmingly unsure of himself in the pocket.
Therefore, it was no surprise that Clemson's signal caller felt the wrath on Twitter from an assortment of individuals. LSU alum Leonard Fournette joined the party with a brilliant screenshot of Bill Withers' iconic tune "Ain't No Sunshine."
Of course, Lawrence's silky blonde hair has seen him assume the nickname, "Sunshine."
Fournette's tweet was comprehensively accurate, too. There was absolutely no sunshine to be found at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome from a Clemson perspective after they jumped out to a 17-7 lead. LSU went on to outscore Lawrence and Co. 35-8 the rest of the way.
Lawerence finished completing 18-of-37 pass attempts for 234 yards and no touchdowns. He added 49 yards and a score with his legs.
It was a far cry from the performance that most pundits and fans predicted from the Clemson star in the weeks leading up to the game, and we don't doubt that this letdown will stick with him for some time. The social media jabs surely will.
