I have had several people say to me this week..

That it doesn’t look like it’s going to be Clemson’s year or that they are worried about Clemson! What’s with this?
I’ve watched the games as closely as ever and I can’t find anything unusual that concerns me. Maybe we need to score a hundred Saturday to show the college football world that this is the same Clemson that they have followed for years now.


to me it’s the same as the last 3 years. We looked sluggish first few games

When we won nc. Defense will keep score low and our offense will keep getting better. Hopefully we won’t have the random game where someone out gameplans us and scores 40.

Etienne needs to touch the ball 20 times a game. Problem solved.

Clemson needs to continue building depth at all positions. Problems solved .... for years to come. Great job Dabo.


I feel like this is probably ridiculous, but here it goes:

We score 48 on GSU. That's a big number. I know there are 4q, and as long as we get the points it shouldn't matter. But we played 1/3 of the game against GSU before we scored.
How different would it feel if we scored 21 in the 1q? I think people would say we looked great and took our foot off the gas. Something about those 21 points not coming until under 10 mins in the second, leaving the whole first quarter scoreless, leaves folks feeling like this team is still trying to put it together. Then out of the half, where you expect a renewed vigor for the quarter, we scored 3.
Not complaining, its just what I think is happening. The stretch of not scoring in the first and only 3 points in the third against GSU leaves you waiting to see this offense consistently impose it's will.

Very nice summation. Just an odd week with the weather and time etc. and I’m glad it happened last week.

The only thing I’d add is the expectations on this team all spring and summer were not realistic. IMO, Clemson is the only one that’s stopped Clemson.

Turnovers were the only downside of the GSU game

We had not been committing turnovers and suddenly we did.

It kept us out of the end zone when we were totally dominating on the field.


After we lost to Bama in '15...Dabo said they planned out

the entire season for '16..............and I am just guessing that one of the things they planned was keeping our starters healthy and FRESH for the course of the season...I want to see Etienne get a thousand plus.....but if he gets a hundred against the coots, a hnudred the next week, and a hundred each in the last two....I can live with it.......

Well there was a reason for that. Remember Clemson played 9 consecutive weeks that year. That'll wear down any team. Fortunately the bye week has been closer to the middle of the year since 2016.

AND, Tigers won the National Championship! These fair weather fans were ready to jump back on the c0ck$ bandwagon after that game! Let's just let'em b!tch and moan and we'll find out who the real Tiger fans are. Win ugly, and I'm still here!

Go Tigers AND Tiger Nation!

FWIW: It sounds like those people that are concerned do not understand the game of football. Plain and simple.


I remember people saying that to me

during the 2016 season.

That one turned out okay (as I thought it would).

I think it’s all about being

In sync and being on the same page. I think the o-line still has some work to do. On a side note it seems like the group that would put up the most points would be Tee, Amari, Justyn, Hunter, ETN, and Trevor at QB. You couldn’t double anyone and couldn’t stack the box because of the deep threats. Just my 2 cents.
