Two Seasons
Clemson baseball enters tonight's game against Georgia with a 16-15 overall record and a 7-8 mark in the ACC. The Tigers haven't played up to expectations so far this season, but maybe the series win over North Carolina this past weekend will propel the Tigers.

Clemson has 25 games remaining in the season, but you can actually look at it as two different remaining seasons. In the next 11 games Clemson has a chance to continue some momentum. However, the final 14 games of the regular season might be a different story.

In the next 11 games, Clemson plays seven opponents who have combined for a 93-90 overall record.

In the final 14 games, the Tigers' opponents are 123-64.

Clemson's next 11 games are against schools that are not ranked in the top 60 in the RPI.

In the final 14 games, four of the six opponents are currently in the top 35 in the RPI.

Clemson's next 11 games are against Georgia (18-15, 94 RPI), Charleston Southern (12-17, 242 RPI), a three-game series at Boston College (13-16, 61 RPI), Western Carolina (14-14, 156 RPI), Gardner Webb (17-15, 162 RPI), three games against Duke (17-15, 78 RPI) and at Georgia (18-15, 94 RPI).

The final 14 regular season games will bring a different challenge. The stretch begins with a three game series at Georgia Tech (21-11, 13 RPI). Then the Tigers host Louisville (24-7, 14 RPI), College of Charleston (21-7, 34 RPI), a three game series with Georgia Southern (19-14, 95 RPI), at Furman (13-17, 235 RPI) and a three game set at Florida State (25-8, 3 RPI).

The hope is the Tigers play well enough in the next 11 games to build some confidence. If that happens it would make it easier to facing the daunting task of the final 14 games.

Baseball is a game of confidence and momentum. Can the Tigers build enough confidence and momentum in the next 11 games to carry them into the final 14 games?
