I'm not an optimist; I generally sit somewhere in between realist and cynical a$shole. With that said, I see this as a very high ceiling year for Clemson; there's also a chance for this to be a much less successful year than the last two.

The reason for our high ceiling is simple: our defense has a chance to be great and our offense is led by arguably the best o coordinator in the country. And Alabama proved over a four year stretch that you don't even need a great offense to be world beaters. Great coaching and consistent winning is a novel concept for Clemson fans 40 years and younger, but this is Clemson Football 2014. We're a fan-base that's just as jaded by Clemson football as some of the ESPN guys.

The guys at STS would call me a sunshine pumper, and I appreciate (some of) their work, but this is a special time for Clemson and the future is very bright. I'm not surprised this guy has backed us; I have high hopes for the year and no one in our fan base should be surprised by or expect anything but greatness.

Obviously, if there are some hiccups and we regress, don't be the guy that wants Dabo fired; he's a huge part of the reason we have such lofty expectations in the first place.
