Will they have mass departures like LSU a few years ago or will the big lure of NIL money bring some of them back for another year. Remember the rumor that Herschel Walker took a pay cut when he left Georgia to go to the pros! Either way old Kirby will continue to recruit other teams and established players to fill his holes. I definitely can't knock him for that because experience is hard to come by. At least he doesn't give the old we got what we got speech and how to walk ons are hard workers. Just curious to see what you guys think.
They are recruiting at such a high level that it will be nothing like LSU. It will be Bama, Georgia, Ohio State, and hopefully we get back into the mix and recruit well again starting next year. Georgia isn't going anywhere though.
You better add Texas to this list the will have the money just like A@M. If they do not change the NIL then lets face it we may have only a couple more years before we fall out of contention. I just hope we are able to compete in the ACC for championships but the Florida schools will be the next schools to find big money to pay players. Unc if Jordan decides he wants to see them win a Natty in football could have a big impact. Welcome to the end of college football as we saw it in the past.
it's odd that nobody seems to see that bigger picture.......

I think Clemson's window of playoff/national title is only open the next 1, maybe 2 years........and by open I mean cracked.
The NIL as it stands right now has spread like wildfire (much faster than many expected). Soon there will be 10ish programs at the top of college football and Clemson WILL NOT and CANNOT afford to be one of them.
