Vic Beasley’s Clemson Tigers beat Julio Jones’s Alabama Crimson Tide last night. After the game, Beasley says Jones wouldn’t answer the phone.
Last night’s national championship ran very late, to the chagrin of many college football fans, but it didn’t affect Beasley’s excitement. He told members of the press that the win almost sent him running around the neighborhood. He also tried to call his superstar Atlanta Falcons teammate Julio Jones to gloat a bit, and got the answering machine.
Jones has long been one of the NFL’s best wide receivers, since entering the league from Alabama. Beasley emerged this season as the team’s most explosive pass rusher in his second year out of Clemson, taking down opposing quarterbacks 15.5 times in the regular season.
Both will need to bring their ‘A’ game this weekend, with the Seattle Seahawks coming to town for the divisional round of the NFC playoffs.
