Wanna be in the 4-team playoff? Beat the 'Noles on the field and in recruiting

Yes, Clemson fans want to beat South Carolina and end the streak, but Clemson's national hopes begin in beating Florida St. and winning another ACC crown. Where does that start? With recruiting. Full Story »

Beat the Noles and we beat USuC. Talent development is another key. We also have been out recruited in the trenches by both the Noles and USuC. That has to stop. No matter how fancy the game of football becomes games will still be won and lost in the trenches.

I agree. We've done well with that on D and now you're starting to see it on O. Watson is our "winston" and they're building toward him taking us to the promise land. Still...don't ya wanna beat them coots along the way? Yessir!

Yep, but we will always have to beat the Nole's first and worry about USC later


Correct

We have not emphasized the OL in recruiting and I am hopeful (but dubious) that this years outstanding OL class is the start of many more.

Most of the pieces are in place if we can shore up our OL recruiting. FSU will always be a tough out given their natural advantages in recruiting but it can be done.


Think they would have figured this out already in the 1990's

when we needed facility upgrades, they fired their national championship winning coach, and FSU was beating us every other year like we were Furman.

In regards to recruiting, I think that Clemson is closing the gap with FSU. The team taking the field this year should be strong and more balanced along with better depth at most positions. The key factor for Clemson is at QB and finding a punishing RB to re- establish the running game that we have not had in last few years. Dabo and the rest of the Coaching Staff have done an outstanding job so far on the 2015 class and have gotten some of the best out there. Key issue is this season. The Tigers have a lot of talent that enrolled in January and more coming in this summer. Returning starters and back ups from last year, along with the freshman should be a good foundation to build on. Work them hard, get everyone on the same page and win one game at a time. USC is at end the season, so worry about that game when it gets here. Primary focus right now is UGA, then SCST then FSU with no over looking someone to the game after!

Also, our offensive line still has something to prove.


Let me get this whine out of the way...

One would expect to have to beat the best team in the country (currently FSU) to win the national title. But if we don't beat them, we can't even win the conference title or even our division! OK, I said it and I won't bring this up again in 2014. Beat the Noles!


if we were in sec, we could lose to fsu and still win it all

that's called the saban plan

Good point. I'm not sure if that makes me feel better or worse.

well guess what. We aren't in the SEC; weren't invited to join the sec, and won't be anytime soon, so might as well give that a rest.


... as in BURY IT. No desire to see Clemson in the SEC. Not

now or ever... It's getting ready to be a special situation at Clemson. You'll see soon.


We proved last year that we could be 1 of 4 in a playoff


Posted: May 21, 2014 12:11 PM
 

with a loss to the real FSU, but not the coots or the coots, too.

As you pointed out we have also proven to beat FSU's "superior" recruiting classes 6-12 over the past 12 years.

And yes, Clemson has arrived in not only player depth, but also system/player development.


Good to get FSU early methinks, they will be tough later in

the season once they've settled in. Stoudt will show what he's made of in Tallahassee. I'm glad a senior will be calling the shots there. UGA will be good exposure preparation for the environment.


Wanna be in 4-team playoff? Beat FSU & SC and other games

Win them all - that will be only way for an ACC team to enter 4-team playoff.


You do realize had we beat USuCk last year we would have

either been #2 or #3 heading into the playoff selection, right?

And that's after laying a huge egg in The Valley against FSU.

There are rarely more than one team that finishes the season undefeated. If any team deserves the a bid with one loss, it would be a 1 loss team that loses on the road to the #1 team in the nation. Provided its not a blowout.


u can do it!

I believe SCar's lil run is over. I also feel beating fsu wont be as much of a long shot as outsiders will think. I get that fsu actually put it together for the entire season last year after what feels like 2 decades of the media and fsu fans saying otherwise. Look at West Virginia. They went from running there big dip filled mouths.to sitting at home during the bowl games . I
