We're behind the 8-ball this year for one reason: schedule. We picked the absolute worst year to have a front-loaded schedule.

We lost our starting QB, a guy who's taken almost every meaningful snap for the last three years. We lost our starting RB, and our two starting WR's - including a guy who was a once-in-25-years-type talent in Sammy Watkins. And perhaps the most meaningfully, we lost our starting left tackle.

Yes, yes, great teams don't rebuild, they reload...and Clemson has the talent on hand to do that. The problem is, you don't just seamlessly replace all that and hit the ground running without a stumble...and unfortunately, you do not want to be on the road at Athens and Tallahassee when you're working out kinks, and you don't want to host programs like UNC and Louisville early - who are, aside from the Seminoles, the only meaningful ACC opposition we're likely to face this year. That means it's conceivable - not likely, but conceivable - Clemson could be 1-4 to start the season, 2-3 is entirely possible, and 3-2 would be doing well. If Clemson goes 4-1 in that stretch...well, it's probably time to e-mail the Playoff Selection Committee, because Clemson will have a case, especially when we see the likes of GT, Wake, and Syracuse down the stretch.

Front-loaded schedules can be killers, and ours is as front-loaded as it gets. Wrong year for that; Clemson's coaches are going to have to coach their fannies off it to get through it with the ACC title and playoffs still within reach.
