In case you missed it: Clemson beat Alabama for the national title this past season.

The Tigers won because the Crimson Tide couldn’t stop Deshaun Watson (again).

It may be three months too late, but it looks like the Tide finally figured out how to. Kind of.

Watson was apparently made to feel very unwelcome on Friday at a bar near Bryant-Denny Stadium, leaving after several patrons, including former Crimson Tide linebacker Ryan Anderson and defensive end Wallace Gilberry, appeared to tell the Heisman runner-up to leave. One woman is overheard being apologetic as Watson makes his way out.



Nothing like a little southern hospitality for a guy expected to be drafted in the first round later this month.

For its part, the bar, InnisFree Irish Pub, apologized, saying it had nothing to do with Watson’s ejection:

And another Tuscaloosa establishment, Druid City Brewing, made sure to reach out to Watson and make him feel welcome.
