Clemson looking at all options for football schedule in 2016 and beyond

Associate Athletic Director Kyle Young is hard at work trying to fill in the blanks in Clemson's football schedule for 2016 and beyond. What out of conference teams are the most attractive? What neutral site games are under consideration? Full Story »

How about another series with Georgia...

Would LOVE a home and home with Penn St. And I want us to play Bama again!!

Penn St and NC State had a pretty good little series going years ago. I doubt we'd ever do that though. Getting SEC teams and maybe a Big 12 (to prepare us for our move there ) would be nice. ;)


football?.......manchester united ....of course!......lol.***

Fact is an sec opponent will help playoff vote, and most of


Posted: May 29, 2014 10:19 PM
 

the matchups are going to be good games with geographic rivals. I'd love to embarrass a b1g team, but there's no guarantee that they'll be having a decent year. We have to worry about impressing voters.

It'd be cool if uf would venture out of state, but their scheduling rule is as many games in the state of FL as possible preferably against bad teams.


It will help the playoff vote if we WIN them. What if we

don't but win the ACC championship game and beat SCAR at the end of year and have won all the others including FSU. I think CU would still get in. Why risk another tough game?


Lets play Tennessee in ATL in 2016!***

Neutral site game against a high profile Big XII or B1G team

would be nice maybe Michigan at Nashville or Oklahoma at Dallas


Oklahoma in Dallas won't be neutral.***

Tennessee, A&M, Florida, Missouri, Penn State, WVU, Ohio St, Bama, Ole Miss, Texas, Oklahoma, Texas Tech or SMU would all be fun. Playing in Texas or Oklahoma would help with establishing our brand to recruits in the Big XII pipeline states


A home & home series with LSU or Florida would be great!***


Posted: May 29, 2014 10:33 PM
 




LSU - definitely

Death vs Deaf Valley.

would be more beneficial for Clemson for recruiting purposes.


Oklahoma or Bama in ATL


Posted: May 29, 2014 11:16 PM
 

Both would make great story headlines.


Home and Home with Ohio State would be Awesome!!!***


Posted: May 29, 2014 11:20 PM
 




UGA, TENN or FLA--no roadtrips to Big 12 and no more FCS!!!

Posted: May 29, 2014 11:28 PM
 

I hate paying CLEMSON $$$$ to the Podunk Possums to roll over & play dead for us to practice against. NCAA or whoever is in charge soon needs to cut this practice off if they want to have a TRUE champion with a playoff system.


Re: UGA, TENN or FLA--no roadtrips to Big 12 and no more FCS!!!


Posted: May 30, 2014 4:49 AM
 

I can't recall Clemson playing 1.Tennessee or 2.Florida, and those matchups would be pretty sweet. I think Tennessee has gotta be on the rise soon. You also gotta love the Georgia/Auburn matchups, they have been very competitive ballgames, and both are natural rivalries and storied programs...especially with Georgia being so close. It would be awesome to play Georgia/Auburn on a fairly consistent basis. Itd also be nice to pay Bama back for taking our lunch... The Tigers have become a better program since then.


Tennessee or Alabama please!


Posted: May 29, 2014 11:29 PM
 

We've already spanked Auburn and Georgia... Tennessee and Alabama seem like the logical next step.


Also, a home and home with Florida would be nice...


Posted: May 29, 2014 11:30 PM
 

But they too skeered to leave their state for OOC games.


UF can't even beat Georgia Southern right now


Posted: May 30, 2014 1:55 PM
 

They are not going to schedule us. Bama would be up for it.


Arizona or Arizona State, please, please, please!***

Re: Arizona or Arizona State, please, please, please!***


Posted: May 30, 2014 9:55 AM
 

Play against Rich Rodriguez would be a nice story line.


A game with Nebraska in St. Louis!!!


Posted: May 29, 2014 11:42 PM
 

Or Kansas City to open the season. Have all the former players from Orange Bowl from both teams at the game. That would be a great setting for a rematch St. Louis the gateway city or Kansas City BBQ....


Bama

Posted: May 29, 2014 11:44 PM
 

Just read that they're looking for someone to play in 2015. Honestly think we should drop wofford or app state and add bama and then play them again in 2016. Lets play someone worth mentioning and find out if we are as good as we think we are.


Re: Bama


Posted: May 30, 2014 12:53 AM
 

Lol, yeah. Let's be like all those other teams and start playing 2 OOC games against top 10-20 SEC teams every year.

Wait, we're already one of the only teams to do that. And the top programs like Bama and FSU have those games on their schedules, too.

I am disappoint.


If we approached Bama


Posted: May 30, 2014 7:40 AM
 

If they were seriously approached, you'd probably find that Bama is actually looking for a team like App St. or Wofford to fill the hole ... not Clemson.


yeah I agree

I don't think nick satan wants to play our fast paced offense. We all know how he feels about that


Idaho or New Mexico State, please!***

Clemson actually had a home and away series scheduled with


Posted: May 30, 2014 8:18 AM
 

Vandy and Ole Miss until the league office started its rediculous nine game conference schedule discussions.

It is my understanding the Athletic Department was attempting to reschedule those games.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.


Really stupid in a way. Lets make the schedule so hard we


Posted: May 30, 2014 12:33 AM
 

never are one of the ONLY FOUR chosen ones with a couple or three losses each year. We have no idea how tough some of the ACC teams will become (Miami,VT, Pitt in coming years) and Syracuse which has the capability to get good again and whip us like they have before in bowls and Louisville in our division now will be no pushover. I'd rather us concentrate on beating FSU and SCAR before we go taking on Alabama again. I know as fans it's exciting but realistic it's going to be more important to be champions of a big five conference and as close to undefeated as possible to play for a national championship.


How about UGA, UGA, UGA, UGA, UGA, UGA, UGA, & maybe UGA?***

In order to be the best you have to beat the best:


Posted: May 30, 2014 7:15 AM
 

NCST will schedule its game as an "OOC" game vs Duke. An extra win that will help them get into the Bell helicopter bowl. We need prime time exposure against UGA, etc. on prime time TV to get the next Sammy Watkins. The bigger game the better.


We have a big OOC game we haven't won in some time:


Posted: May 30, 2014 8:26 AM
 

SCAR. Winning that might help.


Tennessee please!


Posted: May 30, 2014 7:40 AM
 

Purely from a selfish standpoint, I would love to see a home and home series against Tennessee. Having lived in the state for over 20 years now, I would love to have a couple more wins over the Vols on our record. Even though my wife got a graduate degree at UT, I have never been to a football game in Neyland stadium. Going to my first game there wearing the right orange and watching my Tigers beat the Vols at home would be the best first UT game that I can think of!


Re: Tennessee please!


Posted: May 30, 2014 2:31 PM
 

Let's hop in the "Way Back Machine" and dial it back to 1976...
Tennessee wide receiver lines up outside of the official and sprints down the sideline undefended and unseen by the Clemson defense until he's caught the game winning touchdown pass.
Clemson staff protests. Losses protest.
Clemson AD protests and losses.
It's rumored that a high ranking Clemson person uttered the phrase...."Clemson will never play Tennessee at Tennessee again".
I don't think the Peach Bowl (or any bowl for that matter would count in that threat/promise).

Just my two cents of a history lesson.... Carry on.


UGA, or maybe UGA. Other than that I would only want


Posted: May 30, 2014 7:50 AM
 

UGA.


I don't want to play AU or GA again


Posted: May 30, 2014 7:50 AM
 

Just bc we played auburn 3x and Georgia 2x. I would like to see us play someone different from the SEC. Bama and Tenn would be ok but I would rather is play someone like FL or LSU. That would be awesome imo


Bring on Florida or Tennessee***

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.


Gimme some Ole Miss - we owe them an #### whooping***


Posted: May 30, 2014 9:18 AM
 




What about a PAC12 opponent at Cowboys stadium


Posted: May 30, 2014 8:56 AM
 

that would be cool.


There are quite a few SEC teams we can take the series lead


Posted: May 30, 2014 9:09 AM
 

or tie the series lead with just a few wins - Kentucky, LSU, Miss St, Ole Miss, aTm, and Vandy. This is who we need scheduled. Clemson needs to improve its record against the SEC and the best way to do that is play all the teams...Not just Bama, UGA, and Auburn.


Here's a link to our records vs the SEC

Re: Here's a link to our records vs the SEC


Posted: Jun 6, 2014 8:14 AM
 

Dang except for SC/Missou/MissSt - we have a losing record to every SEC team even Kentucky and Vandy. Lets settle the score with some of these teams.


Re: New Story: Clemson looking at all options for football schedule in 2016 and beyond


Posted: May 30, 2014 12:02 PM
 

Schedule one in Nashville. That would be an awesome road trip.


Re: New Story: Clemson looking at all options for football schedule in 2016 and beyond


Posted: May 30, 2014 12:07 PM
 

Clemson has played enough FBCS schools(cash games). GA is going to be looking for out of conference just like Clemson. Schedule home and home for 16 17 18 19. Pick up Chic-Filet every other year and maybe a good travel game. Got to be mindful of the amount of money it takes to travel our staff and players along with the band. Make sure that any travel to Midwest out of conference games is at least break even in cost. I travel extensively for my employer and La, Tx, Oh and Northeast are high dollar travel destinations.


CAL or Stanford Please!!!


Posted: May 30, 2014 12:48 PM
 

Haha I would love to see the Tigers out west!

Go Tigers!


HOW BOUT LOCK IN GEORGIA FOR YEARS TO COME!***


Posted: May 30, 2014 3:44 PM
 




Penn State and Georgia


Posted: May 31, 2014 10:47 AM
 

Perhaps Navy, Texas, BYU, Michigan State as alts for PSU?
