"Clemson has had 11 wins or more in a season just five times in the school’s history – the 1948 team under Frank Howard went 11-0 and won the Gator Bowl by beating Missouri; Charley Pell (10) and Danny Ford (1) combined to win 11 games in 1978 as Clemson defeated Ohio St. in the Gator Bowl; Ford’s 1981 team went 12-0 and won the national championship"

In the very next paragraph:
"Clemson didn’t register its first 10-win season until 1987 when Ford’s squad went 10-2, setting off a string of four consecutive 10-2 seasons."

So before we had our first 10 win season, we had two 11 win seasons and a 12 win season? Unless Mr. Hood is counting seasons with exactly 10 wins... but does that really matter if we had had three seasons prior that had already surpassed exactly 10 wins?

That's right up there with those "first time playing in the Orange Bowl since 2012" stats. What's the point?
