You must not keep up with what's going on then. Florida's top four receivers are out and three defensive starters are out.

You Clemson fans should of all fan bases should know what happens when your best players cant play.

CAN'T play? WON'T play I think is a bit more accurate.

You must be mistaking. In the SEC, "It just means more."

when credit is due. RWT is absolutely correct. At least the amazing SEC talent that is the FL Gators - and the seven players that opted out - left no doubt that they truly didn’t want to be here....

Whatever choice(s) you make makes you. Choose wisely.

The NFL should opt-out of drafting players that quit on their team.

Getting beat? Sure...see clemson vs notre dame in early november with the Clemson injuries. Getting dominated by big 12 team with zero defense? Cant explain that one. Obviously UF knew it was going to be an easy win so they sent there players on Christmas vacation knowing that when they would come back and they would only have 3 practices before the game. While Clemson has been in the playoffs, they have practices all over social media on Christmas day through the last few years. Maybe Dan Mullen should stop beine a cheerleader and actually practice some football. Embarrassing loss for UF and SEC LOL

I tell you one thing that doesn’t happen....

Getting beat 48-13 with 10 minutes to go.
It took a playoff team 2 OT on their home field to beat a Clemson team missing their starting QB and several players.
But if you think about it, we’ve been missing 3 starting receivers, and a couple of defensive starters (Justin Foster....then multiple games without Skalski, Xavier Thomas, Tyler Davis, etc....) practically the whole season.
Yeah...when our best players can’t play, the other guys step up instead of folding like Florida.

Exactly right...

great teams have great depth. Florida does not, nor committed team culture for that matter. Bowman should fit right in.

You mean lose to a Top 4 team in double OT


Posted: Dec 30, 2020, 11:15 PM
 

on the road without the best player in colllege football. Is that what happens? Is that what is happening tonight?

Imagine how many games Clemson would lose if our best returning receiver missed the entire season and 2 other top returning receivers missed most of it.

link

Sounds like a great team UF has...

I understand the argument, but that was a shellacking. We lost in OT arguably missing a more important part of our team. Florida still got to put 11 people on the field each play and the ones that showed up I assume wanted to play at least in the first half. Enjoy the Sorry Excuse Conference.

Clemson’s top 3 receivers have been out ALL year...and multiple defensive starters most of the year including the two returning starting DE’s...on top of that Clemson was without 6 starters on defense and went to ND and lost in double overtime...without their starting QB also...

No excuse to look that bad against a decent opponent and then quit during the game...yes the entire team, coaching staff, trainers quit during the first half! Pathetic!!!

They let OU set a record for rushing yards!!! The Big 12 hasn’t rushed for that many yards as a conference in a single year since they discovered the forward pass!!! Again...pathetic!!!

The transitive property doesn’t work in football

Actually the transitive property is a large part of how of the ranking is done in all sports. You just can't go using it selectively. People use games that should be considered outliers and come up with screwed up results. I don't care if it is a research paper or one of Bill Connelly's ranking systems, when you cherry pick data, you can't rely on the results.

I suggest you stop thinking

Alabama is going to plaster ND. Their receivers will make minced meat out of ND's secondary and eventually Najee Harris will pound their front 7 into submission. They will get tired of tackling him.

On the other side, ND's receivers just aren't all that good at getting open. It's a problem they've had for years.

ND's only hope is being able to run the ball consistently. That must avoid 3-and-outs, get first downs, run time off the clock to keep their own defense fresh and tire out Alabama's defense (at least a little).

I doubt very much that happens but it's their only shot. If ND punts 2-3 times in the 1st quarter, forget it.

I thought that before watching the Cotton Bowl.

Florida is consistently one of the most massively over rated teams in college football, heavily benefitting from the "SEC Effect" media boost. They were a decent, but not great team this year, and they gave Bama absolutely all they could handle. I still think Bama wins, but would not be one bit surprised if ND pulls the "upset".
