Hard Pills to Swallow...

There is a level of complacency that has crept into the program. It shows in the overall coaching and planning for big games against quality opponents. We've gotten blown out the last 3 years in these games. And if it wasn't for TL's scrambling ability we would have lost to OSU before getting worked by LSU.


The ACC's overall decline has masked our own recent decline We play a lot of cupcakes every year and traditional ACC powers (FSU, Miami and VaTech) have all been down too. It's allowed us to win 6 straight ACC titles, but also has set us up to get pushed around in the playoffs.

The best is NOT the standard here at Clemson. Between the coaches kids on the teams and the coddling of clearly overmatched and outdated coaches, the "best" has been achieved largely on the backs of a few truly awesome athletes and QB's in particular.

Alabama has clearly put distance between themselves and us over the last few years. How many coordinators coaches have come and gone at Alabama in the last 3 years, yet they are still winning and producing Heisman winners? For that one night in Santa Clara back in 2019 we were CLEARLY the better team. And while we went on from there to sign coaches to extensions, Alabama took some to the woodshed and reminded them that WINNING big games is what matters most to them. T
Dabo can be both the best coach in the country while simultaneously being the program's biggest liability Between his clearly outdated stance on the transfer portal and his loyalty to ineffective coaches he has put the program on a lower trajectory that is could be. Don't get me wrong, he is still a net positive to Clemson on many levels, but what he once brought in terms of fresh ideas, new coaches and innovation years ago has started to turn into classic "coach speak", same-old, same-old and excuses.

IN Summation; we've become somewhat stale, lazy and complacent. It's on Dabo and the coaching staff to get us back on the right track in a college football world that is changing rapidly. As of now, it is unclear if they can pull it off.

Lost once in Double OT and won once. Lost by ONE defensive TD last night. How is that getting blown out?

With all that

All you got out of it was "getting blown out"?

Your critique may have merit and may be a jaundiced opinion. After the SC Sr. game, Dabo and staff get GT; NCSU; Pitt & BC in a row. Two are on the road and will reveal whether or not Dabo and the staff are earning their pay. The defensive staff earned their pay last night. With 2 starters sitting out, the 'D' played well enough to win.
The options for this '21 season are in front of this team and the offense best get in gear now. I saw too many WR blunders-route running-last night to really be excited about the passing game right now and the OL was a liability against the best defensive front we will play all year.

You didn't mention the inept QB play. That is what hurt us the most in my opinion. We only needed one or two plays from DJ and we would have one. He looks soft to me for a guy that's 6 feet 5 inches and 148 pounds. He acts like he doesn't want to get hurt. He doesn't use his size to his advantage.
I thought he was going to be a duel threat QB. He's not. Teams with very good to great D-lines will have a field day on a QB that never leaves the pocket. Unless the O-line is the Patriots he will not have enough time often enough.

We just need a nasty offensive line. More physicality overall on offense. I don't know who needs to come onboard to make that happen but the status quo won't win you another national title. Dabo needs to make some management decisions at seasons end if winning it all is the target.

I don’t disagree with any of this.***

Did Dabo rank Georgia #11?***

Looks like Saban fixed it after the loss to Clemson and not making the CFP the next season.

I believe that applies to the fan base as well. Instead of being a factor, we’ve gotten complacent and wait for the team to do something.

We are not supportive and are quick to criticize.
