Dabo Swinney will be here shortly to preview this week's game against Wake Forest (9-1 overall, 6-0 ACC).

Tickets are still available. Wake Forest didn't buy their allotment so there are plenty of tickets that can be had

So Wake is 9-1 overall and 6- 0 in conference play...

and they can't sell-out their allotment of tickets for this game?

Why am I not surprised ?!?!?! They couldn't sell out their game last week against Nancy State either.

I'm sure Charlotte is just chomping at the bit to have Weak Florist play in the ACCCG.

yep that is sad. I admire Wake. It is disappointing they dont have more of a football following. I wish our folks had the perspective on how unique Clemson's passion is for football. We still sell more season tixs that many of the ACC schools have seats in their stadiums.

They have a bit over 5,000 undergrads - that is TINY. The coots have more "people" aka those type of folks that have to notify their neighbors when they move in... currently enrolled.

Thus said, Wake could almost have every one of their undergrads attend our game on the ticket allotment.

Wake folks do support their squad and they are my favorite folks to visit (it is my closest Clemson "home game". However, they are their own group. Their are behind on the fanbase side as App/ECU has the fanbase followed by NCSU, UNC, Duke. They are not big enough to really have that giant fanbase.

Coach Swinney sends condolences to Ben Skardon's family. He says his was a "life well lived."

Swinney said having a second noon game in a row should help his team, they will be in the routine of it. Last home game of the season. Celebrate and work all year for these moments. It's a special place and an unbelievable environment. He hopes the crowd will come out. "Come Friday if you can. Pitch a tent."

It's also Senior Day. Some guys that have had great careers who will be honored. This is always an emotional week. Always a little bit sad, too, because it's the last time those guys will be in that stadium. But also exciting because you know they are well prepared.

Swinney says Wake has had a magical year. A lot of veteran players who are well coached and they've stayed away from injuries. He has a friend in Coach Clawson at Wake, they've spent a lot of time together the last two years

A lot of freshmen and sophomores will start for Clemson on offense Saturday. A lot of new pieces. A game of strength on strength, great offense vs great defense, but Clemson's offense and Wake's defense have struggled at times.

Wake snaps the ball quick and they don't do a lot of motion. It's all driven by the OL and QB Sam Hartman. Swinney says these are the best receivers as a group the Tigers have played all season

Good report on Sergion Allen - was a ligament that comes up from the calf. Justyn Ross is out and will have surgery

Swinney is a little emotional telling the story of the day he had to help tell Justyn Ross he may never play football again. He says that was one of the worst days of his career, but seeing Ross play was one of the best days

Sage Ennis is limited so sounds like he can't go, but Skalski is good to go. Ship and Pace are back, as is Putnam. Sounds like Jake Briningstool is going to have to step up

We need Jaelyn Lay to step up this weekend.

I find it hard to believe with our limited WR lineup and now having Ennis out that we won't have to mix Lay into the rotation some more.

Taisun Phommachanh was sore last night and didn't practice. Swinney is hopeful they can ramp him up each day. Swinney hopes he can get better and maybe ready to practice by Wednesday

Dabo opening the door to the transfer portal, says every school will have to use the portal, including Clemson.

Swinney says Clemson has not had to use the portal, that they've been at their number every time. In the past, they knew guys were leaving (like Nyles and Jordan) and they addressed it in recruiting. But this one cycle that they can't do that.

Swinney says Wake's offense is unique in how they approach it, but it is basically the triple option

Swinney says Tigers not getting votes in polls because the narrative is "Clemson stinks" and not that they have played some good opponents.
