Clemson ranked in ESPN writer's Way-Too-Early Top 25

Read Update »



What a joke! UNC is #16, and we're #22!


Posted: May 5, 2014 3:56 PM
 

Going to surprise some people this year!


Seems like UNC has been ranked pre-season a few years now


Posted: May 5, 2014 4:27 PM
 

How's that worked out for them so far?

True. Underrated > Overrated


Underrated > overrated


Posted: May 5, 2014 9:06 PM
 

Completely agree. Much rather start off in the bottom of top 25. Thing is though if we were to beat THUGA and FSU in the first 3 games we would sky rocket up to top 5.

Then we still have 2 tough games in UNC and Louisville. But at least both of them are in DV.

We have the talent to do it, just not getting the respect for multiple years of great recruiting. Go Tigers!

thUGA and FSU have had better recruiting.... if we lose both we would be out of top 25... lose one then preseason rank would be close... win both top 5 ..... I think winnign both is the right plan... :)


Well this should go over well here.***

idiot, he needs Clemson higher to pad his ugay loss***

Got to 12 before I saw a team I'd be worried about

playing.

That's a pretty awful poll. UGAy in the top 10 is a joke.


A Joke?


Posted: May 5, 2014 5:54 PM
 

Should Clemson be above UGA?
Lol

End of season rankings

#7 Clemson

#13 LSU

Not ranked Georgia

Seems like a big jump to me

Clemson has mudholed Uga and LSU in successive seasons. That preseason polls are meaningless is quite evident in this fishwrapper. Clemson still getting no love , and no respect. Could be a very great motivator for our guys

CU returns: Who? some 5 star LB
UGA returns: The Best RB in the nation, Leading SEC tackler, The best LB corps in the SEC.

Didnt you know that Cole Stoudt has been better than Tajh all along and that Clemson will have a top ten defense next year? You don't read this board?!

This conversation is about teams with trophy cases. You can scurry on back to your chicken coop.

They had a top 25 defense last year. Why is it a stretch to think that it will be top 10 with all that's returning?

Oh that's right. You're stupid.


Re: A Joke?

Posted: May 5, 2014 6:46 PM
 

CU returns just about its entire defense , and our Dline is far superior to yours , Xbox. The fact that Gurley and Marshallare your focus will make it easy to gameplan for ya. Our DCo has seen your offense once , and what I know about him is he is great at learning from his mistakes. I just dont think your offense will be ready for our defense , and I know our offense will execute ...because that is what Chad do.
Tigers should be favored on the road , in all actuality.

So basically a less talented version of the team that couldn't beat Nebraska and took GT to 2OT. I'm shaking.


^^^ THIS ^^^

Posted: May 5, 2014 8:04 PM
 

Uga is not our concern, FSU is. Then we have the chickens at home! :)

Go ahead fellas, misunderestimate the Tigers. We love proving y'all wrong time and time again.


Re: A Joke?


Posted: May 5, 2014 8:53 PM
 

Didn't you hear? we had injuries...
Plus we played in Bobby Dodd

The Nebraska game is something else...

So when was the last time you won in Willy Brice?


Re: A Joke?

[2]
Posted: May 5, 2014 9:02 PM
 

Probably about the same year you last did. Irrelevant.


Re: A Joke?

Posted: May 6, 2014 12:21 AM
 

Last time UGA won in Willy-B: 2008
Last time Clemson won in the Cockroach: 2007

What's your point?

Best running back???! Lol...If he can stay off the excersise bike, his toughness has much to desired!!!


Re: A Joke?


Posted: May 5, 2014 9:43 PM
 

I'd be very interested in what RB you'd rank above Gurley?


Gurley's as good as it gets... when healthy

[1]
Posted: May 5, 2014 9:58 PM
 

I'd put Duke Johnson and Melvin Gordon up there with him, though.


Re: A Joke?

[1]
Posted: May 6, 2014 12:22 AM
 

Honestly, the one you've got is pretty close. Mike Davis is a stud. Very few people around here will admit that though.


Clearly health is a factor...***

Cole @ Beach Cole w/ Clemson Hat


Clemson returns pretty much its entire 2- deep on the DL

[1]
Posted: May 5, 2014 9:50 PM
 

That includes one of the leading pass- rushers in the country in Vic Beasley and a bunch of guys who made up probably the top pass- rushing DL in the country last year (Corey Crawford had 10.5 TFL, led the team in QB pressures with 16, and added 3 sacks; returning linemen combined for 122 TFL and 26 sacks; 4 returners on the DL had over 10 TFL last year).

We return Stephone Anthony (5- star) at MLB, who led the team in tackles with 131 (13.5 TFL and 4 sacks, also).

Tony Steward is taking over at WILL and is a former 5- star LB who's been waiting his turn after returning from injury.

The other LB position isn't on the field as much as the other two, but I haven't sensed much worry there. TJ Burrell was #2 on the depth chart last year, and a number of other talented guys are competing with him.

We think the secondary will be improved, as we return both safeties and our corners will have a combo of talent and experience.



I'm not saying they'll be the #1 defense- or even in the top 10- but I do think they'll be better than Georgia.


Re: A Joke?

[1]
Posted: May 5, 2014 10:39 PM
 

And those guys will be littering the field with "injuries" again by the second quarter.


Re: A Joke?

[2]
Posted: May 6, 2014 12:20 AM
 

Vic Beasley, arguably a top 3 DE in the nation in 2014. Grady Jarrett, a defensive tackle considered by some to be a future 1st rounder. Stephone Anthony, a 1st-2nd rounder in his own right. Corey Crawford who got a 2nd round grade after last season, I would hope he will improve on that. Tony Steward, former 5-star and #1 linebacker in the country. Mackensie Alexander, a top 3 corner coming out of high school and 5-star player. As well as returning Josh Watson (starter), Jayron Kearse (starter), Martin Jenkins (starter), and Travis Blanks (starter.) I think the defense will be fine, dawg.


And Mark Richt

No coach has ever been so good at underachieving.


Sure, but obviously affected by injuries

[1]
Posted: May 5, 2014 9:31 PM
 

They were a better team than their final record showed.


Um.....Yes?


Posted: May 5, 2014 8:13 PM
 

Doesn't matter how overrated you are to start the season, you'll be 0-2 after week 2 anyways.


There's certainly a good argument to be made


Posted: May 5, 2014 9:30 PM
 

I don't know what you saw from your team last year to make you think you deserve to be in the top 10 this year after losing Murray, but Clemson returns a defense with a pretty strong front 7 along with a lot of young talent on offense.

I would think you offense will take a step back next year while your defense will be about the same. There's no proof that Pruitt can sustain the success he had last year with a team that doesn't already have a history of defensive success and that doesn't have 5- star players at every position like FSU.

He should have had CLEMSON ranked ABOVE UGA. He only looks (MORE) stupid when CLEMSON beats the leghumpers in their house. Noobie I guess. He sho be stupid.

That said - CLEMSON is going to be be the most-underrated programs in the country this year. Niiiiiiicccccceeeee.


Re: FB Update: Clemson ranked in ESPN writer's Way-Too-Early Top 25


Posted: May 5, 2014 4:50 PM
 

It seems folks are taking Cole lightly. After about the 3d or 4th game, they will be saying that Cole came out of no where. Wrong, he has been at Clemson the last four years backing up a very tough and rugged Tajh Boyd. Surprise, surprise, not really!!! I'm feeling that Cole will play as a seasoned QB from game one.

I don't think that there is any way you could convince me we should be ranked below LSU.


He got 1 and 2 right, that's about it***


Posted: May 5, 2014 5:25 PM
 




Schlabach is a UGA homer, I wouldn't take this to heart.


Posted: May 5, 2014 5:29 PM
 

Plus what's with Iowa? Does he honestly believe that they are better than us?


Re: FB Update: Clemson ranked in ESPN writer's Way-Too-Early Top 25


Posted: May 5, 2014 5:32 PM
 

Haha, ok Schlabach


Can't see Clemson's offense being that bad***

Cole Stoudt will win the Heisman!


Re: FB Update: Clemson ranked in ESPN writer's Way-Too-Early Top 25


Posted: May 5, 2014 6:40 PM
 

How about the Copts at 10 ? Is thos comedy hour ? Their defense will be flaccid and I expect that they will have problems in the passing game , makes their running game suspect thru it being the obvious strength of their team.
I bet they lose 5 this year.

Oh how quickly people forget how much that team sucked before the D they had the past couple years. They are going to be a dumpster fire on D this year.


Who gives a rat's ### what Schlabach has to say? Truth be


Posted: May 5, 2014 6:57 PM
 

told he wishes we'd pull a SCU and go 0-12 for the season.

What a d-bag.


Schlabach is a bigger joke than Korncoot when it comes to


Posted: May 5, 2014 9:04 PM
 

Clemson. The only reason he even has us in there at all is because Georgia opens with us.


Re: FB Update: Clemson ranked in ESPN writer's Way-Too-Early Top 25


Posted: May 5, 2014 9:49 PM
 

These polls mean absolutely nothing! They are based on an opinion from a suit in a studio who is a paid monkey! Seriously Trojans, Notre Dame, UGA and UNC ahead of Clemson!

Not really surprised where Schlabaugh has Clemson ranked. First off, the Tigers do have some questions to be answered on offense. Secondly, Mark Schlabaugh ALWAYS has been skeptical of Clemson and ranks them low.


Re: FB Update: Clemson ranked in ESPN writer's Way-Too-Early Top 25


Posted: May 6, 2014 5:38 AM
 

Don't get it. 'bama is a defensive juggernaut. Every year ranked #1 and they never get billed as in a rebuilding process. I'm not directly comparing us to bama because I understand their level of talent is greater at the moment,but with all we have coming back on defense, plus the additions of last years redshirt class of DBs along with chad Morris whose proven to have success with every first year starting quarterback he's had I feel like their aren't many questions to answer than at tackle.


Re: FB Update: Clemson ranked in ESPN writer's Way-Too-Early Top 25

*other than at tackle


One of my favorite quotes from this....

Posted: May 6, 2014 2:58 PM
 

"Iowa: Hawkeyes should be 6-1 -- at worst -- on Nov. 1. The problem is the schedule is backloaded with Northwestern, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Nebraska in the final month"

LOL....."Backloaded" with Northwestern and Minnesota......real scary

This guy is an idiot
