So many negative Nancy’s. I feel like I’m playing with house money. We’re Clemson. Not Ohio State, Alabama, or Notre Dame. I lived through the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and early 200’0’s as a Tiger fan. Third place isn’t bad at all. It’s much better than struggling to win 8 games while losing to Wake or Georgia Tech. I’m dang proud to be in our sixth consecutive playoff. I KNOW we will be back as long as Dabo is our coach. We have won 2 of the last five National Championships and WE are the standard everyone is chasing! You forget the horrible offensive lines we had before Caldwell was here?! No 5 star lineman whatsoever. We can play with anyone and will continue to be a fixture in the CFP if this staff stays intact. Be careful what you wish for. Shane Beamer could be our online coach! We rarely lose. This line did under perform. But, your assessment of Caldwell is unfair.
Dabo Swinney on Skalski targeting: "it wasn't anything intentional...The letter of the rule or technicalities of the rule, they're going to apply it. But he certainly didn't ?? he was just trying to make a football play, and it's unfortunate."
Dabo Swinney: "We got beat, and we'll grow from it. We'll get better. We start school on Wednesday. Our guys ?? we'll have to give them a little time off here. Like I said, they've been going for a while."
