Re: I want Bama. Good test of our progress since '08 spanking.***
Posted: Dec 4, 2013 12:56 AM
 

In this calendar year Clemson has beaten LSU and Georgia, teams consistently better in the SEC than South Carolina. In fact, this season clemson beat Georgia, and Georgia beat Carolina. Carolina also lost to Tennessee, a team that Clemson would most likely spank. Very few teams win them all, but Clemson has won most of their games(10) and definitely can play with anyone out there. Also, FSU and Clemson are about even against each other over the last 5-10 years in wins/losses vs each other...

In Clemsons two losses this year, they had horrendous turnovers, and thats the story period. On top of that, Carolina has just had their number as of late. Also FSU is pretty dang good this year...if a team like Carolina turned the ball over against FSU the way Clemson did, they would get spanked as well.

Clemson has proven itself to be a top 20 type program over the last 5-8 years, and has been a top 10-15 team the last few years. It would be nice to see how far Clemson has come by seeing how they do against Bama...But remember, Bama has also gotten alot better since Clemson got spanked by them in 2008. Bama is a back to back national champion, and is the clear cut top program out there over the last three years. The team Clemson played back then was a top ten team for sure, but it was only Nick Sabans second year there. Now all the players are Saban dream team recruits.

Back then Clemson was a fringe top 20 team and Bama was a top ten group due to Sabans quick turn around. Nowadays Clemson is a fringe top ten team, and Bama is the king of college football, a team that most people still regard as being #1 even after a miracle loss vs Auburn.

Can Clemson play with the better teams in the country? Wins against LSU, Auburn, Georgia, and FSU over the last few years proves that they can. If Clemson is lucky enough to get a shot at Bama, all I can say is...Down with the King:P
