I doubt that Joe saw a single Clemson game this past season.

Being a Notre Dame guy I’d say that he watched the Tigers play. Perhaps that conference championship game didn’t impress Joe very much.

I think there is a far more sinister agenda here than merely seeking ratings. There is a large contingent of the sports media who want to see Clemson fail. They are smart enough to realize that one way to help accomplish that is to make the team look less desirable for top recruits. One way to do so is to prevent Clemson from ever having a player picked number 1 in the draft. They think trotting out former QBs with high name recognition to bad-mouth Trevor is a good way to do so. I'm sure they could find a couple hundred former players who would unequivocally say they would pick Trevor number one, but we will never see those articles because they don't further the agenda. Hopefully our prospective recruits are smart enough to see thru this. Go Tigers!!

That's exactly what I was thinking. A sinister agenda to bring down Clemson football. An agenda being fed by a small yet powerful contingent of sports media, who have enlisted the aid of high profile former QBs. It's crazy enough....it just might work.

He was on the call at the ACC Championship game as the Notre Dame color announcer. His slight of TL is nothing more than a salty ND alum who hates that Clemson is light years better than his team. They squeaked out an double OT victory against Clemson 1-B and thought they were legit. Turns out Clemson at full strength and anyone else with a pulse still owns them. Nice try, Joe! No ones buying what you’re selling. Case in point: Tampa Bay. Cellar dwellers. Terrible. Add Brady and they are in the Super Bowl. A generational QB is a game changer. He should be even more of a TL believer after getting thrashed by him!!

So Trevor gets credit for the talent on this team despite missing 3 out of his 5 best targets this year. He get's compared to Mack Jones who had a Heisman winning WR, a Heisman contending RB, and other 1st round WR's. And the competition Zach plays against isn't mentioned?


Joe are you mad about the whole ACC Championship beatdown??

Zach Wilson is an excellent prospect

He will likely be the 2nd qb chosen.

Correct.

Here’s my Joe Theismann story

Half a lifetime ago my wife was a flight attendant. I’ll add here, so the story makes sense, my wife is one of the least interested in sports people that you would ever meet. She doesn’t watch sports and absolutely cares nothing about sports. I’m pretty sure this occurred in ‘93. So.........she’s working 1st Class on a flight and a man gets on wearing a full length fur coat. Boarding has just started but all of 1st Class is on and Coach pax are beginning to board. Well the guy in the fur coat is blocking the aisle and boarding comes to screeching halt. My wife gives him a bit of of time to get situated, but it becomes apparent that he is either oblivious or he just doesn’t care that he’s jamming up the works. So she approaches him and says, “excuse me sir, can you please take your seat, we’re trying to board and you’re blocking the aisle”. The man turns looks her up and down and says, “I’m Joe Theismann”. My wife says, “I guess that means I’m supposed to know who you are?” “Take your seat Joe, you’re blocking the aisle”.

She asked me when she came home if I knew who Joe Theismann was.

I laugh about that every time I see his smug face on TV.

Last I heard, Theismann is not an NFL GM. All the top 5 picks and going to have more money than they ever dreamed about.

This insight is what makes Theismann such a great GM

People did not know that much about Mahomes but he is doing all right. So, perhaps there is a small chance that Joe may be right and Wilson may do better than Trevor in the NFL. Regardless, Trevor will have an outstanding NFL career if he stays healthy; wish him all the best.

It was once believe that Joe “went both ways” too but it was never proven. I read once where he was paying one of his ex wives 3.5 million a month. Is that even possible?

On the one hand, you have the opinion of the VAST majority of experts on a particular subject. On the other hand, you have some guy on YouTube who has secret info or has found or recognized something different unknown to those experts. I think Joe is one of those YouTube experts. Don't listen to YouTube experts. Not bad life advice.

Our responses are what really bugs.

Read what Theisman said & it sincerely sounds respectful if not outright insightful.

But while Dabo insists we should respect Charlotte, we can't collectively listen & respect guys like Favre & Theisman? Really? What's happened to our culture at CU is something I'm still struggling to accept, but I absolutely believe Dabo's lessons are good ones if we're only willing to follow them. I still have hope, but this stuff keeps happening & I'm not sure what else to do. It is NOT us against the world & it never will be, nor will Dabo ever teach that. I just wish we'd listen to him more is all. Go Tigers.

Let's think about this....a below average career NFL quarterback (56% pass completion , 200 TDs & 185 int's)...trying to tell us TL16 is not the best QB in the upcoming draft. Yeah Right!!! He needs to go back to the campus of Notre Dame if he is that hard up for attention. His statement reminds me of what one of my college professors told me..." It is better to let people think your're a fool, then to open your mouth and remove all doubt they may have ".
