The latest Coaches Poll is out on Sunday afternoon and Clemson fell 16 spots to No. 25 after the 27-21 double-overtime road loss to North Carolina State on Saturday. The Wolfpack enters the Top 25 poll at No. 23. In-state Coastal Carolina is the highest-ranked team in the state at No. 16. Full AP Po Read Update »
I have to agree. I look at the teams ahead of us and I dont see anyone that I would have us favored over on a nuetral field. Until we can average 28 to 30 points a game this will not change. The game has changed folks and I'm afraid Dabo believes that a down year from the offense would be ok. He has a top 5 defense so no big deal. He lied to us all summer about our oline, receivers, and QB. Time to earn that money coach!!
Correction, not this team, it's our offense that has caused the team as a whole to tumble from the rankings. We wouldn't have been ranked after the GT game if it hadn't been for the play of our defense.
Everybody crying about TE'S play calling, and scheming now, and it's bc he don't have two NFL type QB's covering for Tony's terrible play calling, but it was getting me TDed when I would say anything about Tony's play calling before this season, and that Jeff Scott should have been our OC before he left. And everybody had forgotten that it was the play called by Jeff Scott that got us the win over Bama in 2016!!!! The wrong OC left Clemson, and now I can't wait to see how Dabo handles this one, hopefully like he did with Kevin Steele, and Steele is more of a DC than Tony ever has been a OC. I just hope that we can hold onto the players and commits that we have, and hopefully Dabo can find Clemson a successful OC that can be as good as BV has been for defense!!!!!
Vastly overrated by us and the media. This team is just very weak right now and the lack of O is wearing down the defense. Not jumping on the guys I think they are trying but we are weak in so many respects. This team wont have an easy win the rest of the way.
Man, the school is spending close to $20M for this season football coaching staff and investing in a football roster with over sixty 4-Star football players; and, only to have a 25th ranking in the college football polls, now. Maybe this low marks will shame the coaching staff enough and light a fire underneath their butts to coach the players up to their full potential and get a top 10 ranking again before this season is over. Anything less is a waste of the school’s resources!
