Here We Go!!!!!!

[3]
Sep 5, 2017, 12:43 PM

I'm pumped!!!! Looking forward to it! I think me and my friends are going to aim to be there before noon.

I know I've asked before, but give me a couple of recommendations for Lunch on or around campus!
I'll try and find the last thread where I asked this, but since you know I'll be looking for Gameday Lunch .... give me your recs! I don't mind waiting a little while, we'll have 6-7 hours to kill.


After seeing both teams play meaningless games Sat, I think this game could go either way. Only a blow out either way would surprise me. I see where early money is on Auburn from the original 7 point spread ... down to 5.5 now. I think it will end around 4 - 4.5. I feel like it won't be more than a 10 point victory for one of the Tigers.

Spoke to one of our Insiders on Friday night. He said get ready to be "Frustrated" tomorrow. When asked why he said ... "You'll think Gus is calling the plays ... they're saving 95% of their offense for next week". Went on to say that even the OL pass pros were from last year.

Stidham is known for his accuracy and his long ball. We only threw 2 long balls. One was a TD and the other was dropped in perfectly to Slayton, but the DB grabbed one of his hands (no call) and missed it after attempting a one handed grab near the chest.


Bryant surprised me with his accuracy (although some of the WRs were not touched)
Our D surprised me (although we were playing GA SO)
Same for y'alls D .... Neither Kent State nor GA SO could throw the ball.

We gave up a sack fumble. What happened? Stidham checked from a Run to a pass .... Johnson didn't get the memo (as he looks confused as to why he didn't get the ball) Gus said on the checked play, Johnson should've blocked off the Left Tackle (which is where the unblocked player came from).


Stidham threw a pick? Great throw ... but check the ego ... He threw it perfectly to Hastings, but the DB had great coverage ... leaped in front/making an incredible play ... but maybe don't try to thread it when someone has excellent coverage.

Johnson's Hammy? I don't think he plays. They're so tight lipped ... but no way they risk losing him for Conf play. Should be back by week 4 imo.


Seems like we have lots of Strength vs strength matchups. Ya'lls receivers vs our CBs and S
our OL & Pettway vs ya'lls awesome DL and vise versa.

I honestly think both teams Ds are very good. Both offenses will be tested by actually resistance in the passing game and great DL that make it hard to run the ball.
I think we'll "Slow Down" each others run game and It will come down to the QBs ... turnovers ... least mistakes ... and kickers/STs.

We have the best Kicker in the country (two time runner up for Groza award) But he shanked two!
Made a 50 ydr that would've been good from 61 maybe 62 (was above the vertical poles as it crossed)
Then he missed a 53 ydr by a foot .... then shanked a 46 (missed by 5 feet). So it was uncharacteristic for him. Hopefully that doesn't stick with him.

I think we have the better kicker

sticking with Special Teams - Our punter will not allow a return (think we only had 1 return last year for like 10 yds) ... he kicks it high and about 35-40 to not allow a return. We never kick low boomers of 45+

I would say that we have the better QB.

So for my predication, IN MY OPINION I think we're better in the deciding factors. The other tangibles ... Turnovers and Home Field Advantage .... Obviously crowds can affect games but Turnovers definitely affect games. I'm going to go out on a limb and say if one team loses the turnover battle, they lose the game.


One thing that makes me nervous is our 3rd string (2nd for this game) RB Kam Martin. He turns the ball over. I'm sure y'alls coaches will be on the D that when they see Martin in ... go for the ball.
This worries me. I told the guy sitting next to me at Saturday's game .... This is the one that fumbles more times than you'd like. He fumbled a few series later.

Impact players not named Stidham Pettway?
#3 Nate Craig Myers WR ... he wasn't targeted once Saturday. That will change.
#11/#86 (Changed numbers last year) Kyle Davis WR best on the team.
I bet we throw the ball at least 30 times this game ... and run about 40 times.
Those 2 will be targeted quite a bit. Next in line is 81 Slaton & 33 Hastings (our little white dude)

I think we have success through the air which will open up things for Pettway.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say we do not lose the turnover battle (here's to you Martin!)
and have a better showing than even most Auburn fans expect.

I've changed my prediction from last week a little due to the dominance of each Defense.

Auburn 27
Clemson 21

Come at me bro


I'll do my best to check back throughout the day

All of our DL are 4 and 5 stars, lol.

Actually, our defense is made up of pretty much all 4 and 5 stars. Our d-line is just as good, if not better than last year. Our linebackers are more athletic, and our DBs are still just as good as well.

Not a lot of drop off from last year.

I'm going off recruiting numbers. One of you guys on here had the actual numbers.
Auburn has more 5 and 4 stars than Clemson .... Although not by much.

The unit rankings I was deferring to Phil Steele .... best in the business.

He had Clemson ranked #1 for DL beating Auburn who was around 7 or 8 in the country.
Our LB and DB units ranked higher than Clemson and were in the Top 10 as well.

You can't use what happened last year to guage what will happen this year even if the exact same players played the game. Your logic is flawed but I'm guessing you're young. I'm not bashing you or anything like that because I used to think the same way. 31 years of watching college football has taught me better. Enjoy your time in Clemson bro. Win or loose this should be one of the best games of the year. Go Clemson

Re: You keep doing the same thing.


Sep 5, 2017, 5:25 PM

Ok. Then why do you keep bringing up stuff like "y'all only scored 19 last year." In that statement you suggest your D was better than Bama's last year correct? Or do you realize that early season games can be sluggish especially for the offense. Why do you assume our defense will be worse? I admit you have good reason to believe your O will be better but I can promise you last year's scores by either team will have absolutely no bearing on Saturday's outcome. All this to say we both know we have really talented teams and this will be a great game but you have some early season assumptions with almost nothing to base it off of. You're not alone in this. You look at the polls of the experts right now and look at them at the end of the year. The polls will be upside down. Again not trying bash you here as I have done what you're doing in the past but I will refrain from making bold and seemingly baseless assumptions. Again you're a good sport. Enjoy your time in Clemson.

Sep 5, 2017, 7:46 PM

Holy #### ... when did I ever say we had a better D than Bama????
No one has a better D than Bama ..... and only teams with ELITE QB usually have a chance (Newton, Watson, Manziel)



I realize last year doesn't guarantee scores .... but it's worth pointing out facts with talent from last year compared to this year. Look if y'all beat this Auburn team, make it to the playoffs again .... without a guy like Watson ....
you'll enter into Bama hype with the "Re Load Every year" tag.

Hold on with the "We've already made it back to back" posts. Do it without the best player in school history and you earn the "bamafit of the doubt"

And there we go again...."without Watson". You are not going to admit you were playing a sleepwalking Watson and Clemson O, are you? You have yourself convinced that you played the same version of him Alabama played...so that is where you are saying you think your D was beter than theirs....you "held" him to 17 points, Bama 35....so is that not what that is saying???

Since we're pointing out facts with talent, did you happen to notice Clemson did all that with that "best generational talent" (not arguing that he wasn't for Clemson)...and that exact "next generational talent" had a glaring flaw that did change some games, whether it be on him or partly receivers?

Clemson in the 2016 season sat at #109 of 128 in passes intercepted per game,
and 88 out of 128 in 2015??

Thanks Tigerman1978. He keeps bringing up "we held you to 19 points" to back his opinions. In essence he is saying their D was better than Bama's since we scored 35 on Bama and 19 on Auburn. I guess NC St had a better D too if I use that flawed logic.

Re: Here We Go!!!!!!


Sep 6, 2017, 11:17 AM

How do you know its a better D last year? Big Dex having another year under his belt and playing next to Wilkins is a plus already, we already have a better cover corner than last year in T. Mullen. You still have a Big 12 QB, and we know what happens to them when they play a real defense.....ask Mayfield. It'll take some unrealistic and abnormal things happen for AU to score more than 21, maybe a ST's score or Defensive score, calls go their way, etc.....basically something the Coots would have to have to win a game like last week.

Anyhow, nothing wrong with your prediction since you have to predict AU to win. I see it more 27-17 Clemson

Well you sure laid out a lot of facts but you conveniently left one out. Clemson is a far superior team in talent, has a far better record than Auburn in the last 4-5 years, your QB will spend the nite on his backside as he has never played against a quality defense. The Big 12 just might be the worst defensive league in the country.Furthermore, you DC can't coach against an option like QB and that is exactly what we have. Result is the Clemson Tigers will take the pretenders out behind the barn and end up beating them 35-10. Now, I've been patient waiting to hear if you care to put some your money up or are you a little timid when it comes to those matters?

https://www.si.com/college-football/2016/12/20/clemson-tigers-college-football-playoff

"What’s better than a team with a playoff pedigree, a deep and disruptive defensive front, a savvy two-time Heisman Trophy finalist at quarterback and abundant skill-position threats? That same package of talent and experience when it's motivated and ticked off. This is Clemson in 2016, a club that sometimes drifted in the early part of the season and squeezed out five one-score victories before its high-wire act caught up with it. When Pittsburgh upset the Tigers 43–42 on Nov. 12—in Death Valley, of all places—the defeat didn't put their title hopes to bed as much as it awakened them. "Prosperity is a terrible teacher," coach Dabo Swinney said a couple of days afterward. His team seemingly learned something anyway, following the defeat with two straight wins by more than 20 points before building a three-touchdown lead against Virginia Tech and holding on to win the ACC championship game 42–35. Beware, College Football Playoff participants. Clemson sleepwalks no more."

It wasn't that our O was all over the place. We didn't have our O in tact.
With White (who played well enough to beat you in spite of playing 1/3 of the snaps) and Pettway out
(See UGA Game) .... we were a different ball club.

Re: we've lost 2 games in 2 years by 6 pounts total


Sep 5, 2017, 6:45 PM

same thing..QB roundyround...all over the place. Is having issues figuring out what QB to play not being all over the place?? Again, I challenge you to try being blunt....try saying you faced the same focused Clemson offense Alabama did. I'll wait on the response, or lack thereof.

Let's lay it out a bit better. Auburn faced Alabama, only 2 games before we did. They scored 12 points total on Bama's defense not playing QB roundyround...13 on Clemson's while doing it. BUT, Clemson scored 35 on that same Bama a month and a few weeks later...14 by qtr 3 end, 21 in one quarter alone. Auburn's D held Bama to 30 points, Clemson's held them to 31...so that's a complete wash.

See the glaring difference that wasn't there in the Clemson/AU game, where Clemson only scored 17? You are kidding yourself if you think you weren't playing a sleepwalking Clemson offense last year. The proof is there.

or are you trying to say that with Pettaway and White in, you'd have been able to do what Bama couldn't if you get them, and we play you in our season end form when the sleepwalk stopped?? I mean, why do you only get to change something in your scenario. Please, I really want to post this on a Bama site and watch you get laughed off it.

Re: What makes you so sure that playing White every snap

And before he tries saying "Pettway wasn't in the game", he better check that depth chart...he wasn't NOT available...Hind sight is 20/20, he could have played, thus was available on the sidelines as a player of the game.

Not Clemson's fault they didn't play him, and there wasn't an injury that kept him missing. So they could have went with Pettway, could have went with White only...but they didn't.

Gameday lunch I'd suggest Esso for the "classic Clemson" atmosphere. It's probably the most famous restaurant in the area. I was told that War Eagle Supper Club is Auburn's version of the Esso Club essentially, in terms of food and what not but I didn't get to try that place when I was in Auburn last year so I can't attest.

Definitely try Smokin' Pig in Pendleton on your way in or out of town if you're staying a while (They're open Thurs-Sat) but I wouldn't even bother trying to eat there on a game day.

Underrated food all throughout downtown CLemson. I think Loose Change has the best bar food in the downtown area and Wingin' It is never a bad place to eat because they have TVs everywhere so you can see College Gameday/noon kickoff games with ease if you aren't doing any serious tailgating.

The food and drinks are cheap no matter where you go so you won't have any complaints wherever you end up.

Lemme guess...


Sep 5, 2017, 1:20 PM

You also had Auburn beating Clemson, A&M, Georgia, Alabama and Oklahoma last year too, right?

I agree with you on 1 thing... I'm sure Auburn didn't open the playbook up at all, nor did we. You best believe that you saw nothing from Tony Elliot and Jeff Scott and arsenal or WR's and RB's. I am not here to say that Clemson is going to dominate or that they are far superior team. In terms of recruiting, y'all hold a slight edge. However, in terms of developing talent and getting the most out of them, Clemson certainly holds the edge and we are literally 2 or 3 deep at every position but DE.. which, is surprising for us. Auburn is no doubt a talented and viable opponent and I think Auburn will have a very successful season. But if you think Stidham is not going to be running for his life and be pressured all night you are mistaken. We are better on the front four than we were last year because we returned all 4 starters and they have a whole year more of game experience now. We pretty much lived in your backfield last year and that will be the case at home with the crowd behind them. Stidham is good, as is Pettway, but when you don't have time and or the running lanes are clogged, it's tough. Best of luck to you after this game, but the home Tigers take care of business win by 10+ and the away Tigers are held to less than 20 points.

Hopefully you come back to the boards on Sunday....

But yes, I did have us beating aTm .... and the UGA game was the worst loss in 10 years.
We were a 14 point fav and we trotted out a QB with a bum shoulder. He threw a pic six because
he couldn't throw the ball more than 15 yds ... that was the only TD UGA had.
We would've beat them by 3 TDs with a healthy White.

I'll be nice because I like when people visit Clemson and rave about how friendly the fans are throughout the day and how they can't wait to make another trip. It's a special place, and I definitely enjoy sharing it!

Where to eat might depend on where you're coming in from. The traffic won't be terrible prior to noon because the game is at 7...it won't get all that heavy until about 4 hours prior to kickoff and even then it's not as bad as for an early game. Long day of tailgating = long day of people getting there, but don't expect to go anywhere fast after the game is over. Or anywhere slow for that matter. It will take forever to get out!

If you're coming in from the Anderson/Greenville direction, you can never go wrong with Smokin' Pig right on 76 (Clemson Blvd) in between Anderson and Clemson. It's delicious, and they have expanded the restaurant drastically from its original shack. I will warn you, I've never gone anywhere near it on a gameday and cannot even begin to tell you what to anticipate as far as crowd. They open at 11.

Another option that isn't far from Campus is Sardi's on Old Greenville Highway across from the Bi-Lo. Again, never been on a gameday, but people rave about that place. They open at 11:30.

If you want to get in on the craziness of gameday, head to a restaurant downtown or hit up the Esso. You can't miss the Esso, as it's right in the middle of all the action. If you go downtown, there's a bunch of options. I will warn you, anything that looks like a bar is going to have very typical bar food. It'll fill your stomach and give you an experience, but it's not going to make you want to make a special trip back to Clemson to eat there again.

After you get a bite, make sure you walk around and enjoy the campus. It should be a beautiful day and if you appear friendly enough, you're likely to get invited to join in on festivities going on at a tailgate or two.

I'm not going to comment on the game because I like the players to do the talking on the field. I hope you enjoy your day, but leave disappointed in the final score :)

Ask any expert from last year. Bama had the best Dline and Oline in college football. We handled them. Your Oline would have to be better than Bama's was last years because we have the same dline only better. Your Dline would have to be better than Bama's last year because we have the same Oline as last year only improved. We will win in the trenches. You are too hung up on the QB. He did not catch 1 ball or make 1 tackle all season that I can remember. You couldn't handle Lawrence and Wilkins last year and that was Dex's first college game. Clelland blossomed late. OSU had no answer for him. He missed at least a 1/4 of the NC game and we didn't miss a beat. Stidham sees his first real defense. Love your optimism.

Fellows, I'm absolutely scared to death. The Auburn coach, himself, has come on this board to tell us how good they are and are going to beat the snot out of my Tigers. They ran only four plays against Georgia Southern. I don't know if that was intentional or if that's the limit of plays their team can absorb. Heck, we have only four plays and we ran them all against Kent State. I hope they were not looking at our game on TV because if they did, now, there are no secrets. We don't have the talent to compete against the Plainsmen, War Eagles, Tigers, Toomers Tree Huggers or whatever they will call themselves this week. We had to play 91 guys against Kent State just to find out if we can find 11 offensive and 11 defensive men to put in the field come Saturday night. We have only two 4**** and one 5***** QB's. After that, we may have to flip a coin who plays at QB because Israel is recovering from an illness. We just don't have the transfers or the Junior College guys on our roster to compete at the SEC level. We have to resort to recruiting high school seniors and hope we can recruit them up to the level so they do not trip and fall down running on and off the field. We also have some players who place too much emphasis on academics and graduate in three years. How thoughtless of these guys for not devoting more time to the football team and letting the academics slide. Some of our guys are taking this STUDENT/ATHLETE thing to the extreme and I'm worried the NCAA will come breathing down our necks because almost all of our players graduate.

The only redeeming thing is the fact I have learned to worry successfully.

Hope you have a wonderful experience in Clemson. We certainly did in Auburn last year.

My recommendations: don't be driving around on game day. Get to your parking spot early and wander from there. Downtown is a quick walk and will give you a nice view of the campus.

Esso is closest, especially if you are parking West or North of stadium. Good bar, OK food, fun atmosphere, rich tradition.

Downtown starts at Northeast corner of campus, near Tillman Hall, which will probably look kinda familiar to you. There are lots of options along College Ave (Main St) for food and drinks.

Again, have fun and safe travels.

He's now having to try again at SF, and we hope he makes the grade in the end...but he does have to improve in pass coverage to step his game up to the next level.

So yes, there is definitely room that the next guys could be better.

OK, so how does Auburn do in Road Games???


Sep 6, 2017, 11:49 AM

Let's go back to the 2016 season and see how Auburn faired in road games. After all, this week's game is in Clemson, so how does Auburn perform on the road?

Last year, Auburn played its FIRST road game on Oct 8 against an awful Miss State team (yes, the same one that lost to South Alabama last year). After 5 straight Auburn home games to open the season, and plenty of evaluation time, Auburn was able to get the win. No surprise there.

After a bye week, and yet another home game (6 already), they went to Ole Miss to play the 3-4 Rebels. Again, Auburn won. No surprise, especially since they faced two horrible teams.

However, the next 3 opportunities at road games (Georgia, Alabama, and Oklahoma ... nuetral site), Auburn lost all 3, and averaged only 13 points per game. Georgia was not a very good team, but has a great stadium and crowd. Bama is Bama. Oklahoma was a legit Top 25, but not elite.

My point is this .... over the past year, Auburn has not performed well in away games against an opponent with a pulse. And now they will play at one of the most difficult stadiums to play in, especially at night, and against an elite team with a Top 5 defense. Good luck, but I agree with Vegas. Clemson by at least a touchdown.
