Clemson - built like an SEC team

David Greene said Clemson was the top non SEC school in the nation. We are loaded and have the right mindset, they know we are ready. This has to be our year.

clemson is built like Alabama with Oregon's offense if the defense plays like they did in that bowl game

[2]
Aug 16, 2013, 1:31 AM

and that is not built like most of the SEC to be honest the SEC outside Alabama Florida LSU Texas A&M Georgia and to my regrets defensively like South Carolina past couple of years (Idk about this year) has pretty much been it. no team in the SEC have you been then close to as the deadly as Clemson will be this season. The only question in my mind is can the defense play like they did in the bowl game on a consistent basis and even better. I mean I went back to watch the Wake Forest game and it was a lot of games last year who is Clemson still look flat and played terrible and still won by 40 points. I just wish they would walk in the season and crush everyone and take pride in just the demoralizing other teams. because let's be honest Clemson will not be respected until they give Bobby Bowden treatment to teams for couple years. and that means obviously blowing them out of the water. but to make my point clear there is no team in the SEC besides maybe Georgia and Texas A&M that can't even lay claim to be in the same build as clemson offensively and that is a real hard stretch

flag link

ehh not quite......


Aug 16, 2013, 8:25 AM

the defense made improvements toward the end of the year........however a BIG reason we looked "LOCK DOWN" vs LSU was b/c LSU wasn't very good on offense.

kinda like 2 years ago when our defense seemed to "show up" when we played VT...........that's b/c VT was inept on offense.

again don't get me wrong we improved on defense........and i think we'll be better defensively this year, but don't expect the defense like we saw vs LSU or VT every week.

Aug 16, 2013, 9:16 AM

lost to GA. Those are the only good teams they played the entire season. I stand by what I said. Everybody seems to think they're SO MUCH better than the rest and it's just not true. You'll see the same crap from the media this year. Their only real comp this year is TAMU and LSU again and they have an open date before both. Whomever wins the SEC East will probably be their toughest matchup. Their schedule according to opponents' last year record is the #104 "toughest" in the country. As usual, they play a couple of tough games and then the SECCG. Where is the BCS strength of schedule other than the SEC hype? Like I said before, "Bama ain't all that."

The SEC upper-ranked teams are riding the laurels of their Ds for the most part. Bama barely escaped in the SECCG and UF and LSU didn't in the bowls. The whole year was skewed in the polls based on a myth. It's easy to have a 'great' D when you don't face but a few good quality Os per year. Bama loses to TAMU and then in the off-season AuBurn hires Malzahn. So what are Satan's first comments? Blah, blah,....HUNHs. Waa, waa,... HUNHs. He sees it coming. Apparently, so does the SEC in their blatant wimp schedule for their run at a 3-peat.

The offense is not going to be as dominating in every game as most of this board thinks. Some people here think that the Tiger offense is surpassed only by the Patriots! We lost Nuk, AE, Ford, Freeman, they are irreplaceable. We'll have some sub par offensive games, I guarantee it. The question is which games? If it's BC, WF, SCS, Citadel, MD, VA etc., that will work-the others, not so sure, because the defense will have to play lights out! We do have trouble with the 4-2-5 speed defense, as witnessed with SC the past four years. I do agree that the defense is the x factor to this season. They have to play with a reasonable consistency for the team to have a very successful season.

Dr. Doormats, You certainly do have the ##### on your mind, at all times. It must be nice to live in either a fantasy world, or a drug-induced state, where you believe that Clemson actually scores 50-70 points a game. Unfortunately, I stand by my statement, and if the offense has one of those sub par games on August 31, Georgia will beat us by 3 TD's! I apologize for not fitting into your little girl world, where reality doesn't exist, so when things go South for the Tigers, you blame external conditions or have a volume of ridiculous excuses to make you feel superior, when deep inside you know the truth. As for anomalies, I'm just hoping that the LSU win was not one, but we'll all know in about two weeks, won't we?

Clemson is Clemson. Why it has to be "like" an SEC team to get "love" from a pile of dawg crap to be elite is beyond me.....and this coming from an Auburn grad. The SEC is on a roll but it's coming to an end. I think this is the year for it. I'm not a conference guy. I can't stand the way the ACC has treated Clemson over the years (esp. in basketball) and I can't stand the way Auburn has been treated by the SEC.

Brother, Clemson runs an offensive system which is 'State of the Art.' The SEC for the most part runs a system which was made famous by The Bear and some of the other classic coaches of the past century. Don't get me wrong. I love four yards in a cloud of dust but those day are soon to be gone by the wayside.

Think engineers using sliderules. (SEC)

Or, think ballet dancers v. boxers in a ring? That "State of the Art" offensive system usually lacks a very distinct form of physicality (excepting CFA/LSU), and unless we pick up on that, the SEC will continue to roll right along. Not saying we change the system, just become a more physical team. I suspect we'll all know the answer, one way or the other, after August 31.
