to happen. They can go 11-1 as long as the loss is at Clemson. Their schedule is super soft, so it's not entirely out of the question either.

OTOH, it's very difficult to pull for State or Doeren.

Hard for me to argue with that ranking for us

Just win, baby!

Our offense has a lot to prove before we are a top 10 team.

Gives us some motivation during the off-season and improves our strength of schedule.

I like it.

After the way the team played last year, particularly offensively, Clemson is not deserving of a top 10 ranking at this point IMO.

No problem with this. Having Nancy St and ND ranked ahead of us is good. We control our destiny and what we need to do is very clear-cut. Beat those 2 teams (and win the rest of them) and our stock rises significantly. Going into it with eyes wide open. I’m pretty excited about the possibilities.

Unlike the SEC though where you play a team that is ranked 3rd or 4th in the begging of the year, then Ends up unranked that won’t happen to Clemson. Clemson could throttle NC Dtate and ND and ESPN will talk about how those two teams were over rated. Ohio State can beat a terribly over rated PSU and Ohio state will get credit for beating a great PSU team in the road. We know how it works

Man our fans have a short memory. We had a Championship Caliber defense last season and a bottom 10 offense. What did that get us? A final ranking outside the top 10, as it should have been. Why would anybody other than an insufferable homer who was in a coma for all of last season expect us to be ranked higher this season when we have done nothing, yet, to deserve it? We should still have a Championship level defense this season, although losing college footballs best defensive coordinator will hurt. Offensively we are returning the same group who stunk it up last season, although without their coordinator who led us to two championships, although I do realize some may not consider him as much of a loss. Until our offense proves it can consistently score on D1 defenses then you better get used to the "disrespect".

Also could be the fact we're a basketball school now. We're taking all our resources now and putting it towards bball.

So does this mean that ESECPN actually has us in their bottom top 25 with all SEC schools, with OSU, and Oklahomo ahead of us also, but right behind the SEC!!!;)

A few offensive differences since last year:
1). We had no capable backup at QB. That won’t be the case in 22.
2). A healthier OLine that also added a few more 4-stars.
3). Healthier WR corp/ plus flexibility at slot.
4). Great RBs that now have another year of experience.

Based on last year and the uncertainty on the offensive line, wide receiver and linebacker positions, less than Top 10 is not surprising.

Clemson has had a pretty good track record in recent history when being the underdog. To be honest I like it when they are, they usually seem to play harder when they feel disrespected. Bring on more outside the top 10 rankings. Let them settle it on the field.

Yes, no reason to put us in the top 10 - we have to earn it. NCSU at 7 - seriously? They only beat us because of what WE did not because they were great and then of course the other losses. Why would it be any different this year - always oversold and underachieved for them. I agree I wish someone would go 11-1 only losing to us! Look at the bowl record the ACC is not scaring anyone no matter what the spring rankings suggest - and to cross-ref to the NIL article it sure is not helping!

You can always count on the “experts” to have Notre Dame, Tennessee, and USC in the preseason rankings.

ESPN left out one key word in their naming this article. Should be" Way To Early". We had multiple players out with injuries or recovering from surgery. Alot can or could happen during summer work outs. When pre season practice starts, we should have a better idea of where the Tigers stand offensively. Hopefully, everyone will be healthy and ready to go! IF this offense shows up for a repeat from last year at all positions, including QB, we are in serious trouble. I hope there is no hesitation if this happens for the Coaching Staff to make wholesale changes and get the best players on the field ASAP.
