FSU/UCS losses cost us our respect earned from LSU/UGA wins

It's very clear in sports media, TV and radio, that we're back to our old spot of overrated Clemson.

This should surprise no one; we really needed to go at least 2-1 this year vs. UGA/FSU/UCS. We didn't get it done. What hurts even more is UGA's mediocre season.

So, we're right where we were a year ago. Once again our players read too many press clippings and got complacent.

We can get it all back with an Orange Bowl win and an opening win next year at UGA. Nut cuttin' time.

I've seen nothing on our 2 losses that would lead me to believe they were due to us being overconfident or anything even close.

FSU has beaten every opponent by double digits...

...and they can barely get any respect themselves. You can't pay attention to what the "media" thinks. Most of them are either extremely biased or just flat out have no idea what they're talking about.


Yep...

I think we could have survived the FSU loss (the score is what made it horrible) but we had to win the SCar game.

Based on the remainder of our work, I can't say that I blame them. Personally, I still think the UGA win was a good win, but we won't get credit for it.

If we lose the OSU game, our credibility will take another step backward.

Oregon and Louisville. I think people are respecting Clemson.

Had we won those games and facing Allburn they'd be saying we had no SOS.

We'd have to win half a dozen NC games in a row to satisfy how much respect most Clemson Fans think we deserve.

We lost to the coots and made a BCS game. We've a good shot at winning our last game and making this our second year in a row to win 11. I'm not happy about the losses but I'm not ashamed to be a Tiger.

we needed a narrow loss (or win obv) vs FSU and a win vs SCA

The FSU loss was most troubling. At home..to get best down like that...some of it was certainly misfortune but it's clear that there is still a huge talent gap...and j don't mean just the players...

I think our Rally Cats are as good as theirs any day! I am sure you aren't making a reference to our coaching staff.

We were the only team to play a healthy Georgia. Losing Gurley for those few games is a killer. SC barely beat Florida, and lost to unranked Tenn so everyone needs to relax! That being said we must beat Ohio St.


Indeed we did little to change perception, and in fact only

reinforced it. Gotta beat the Buckeyes, gotta quit getting blown out, and gotta quit getting beat by the coots.

Wasn't Ohio State ranked number one in some pre season polls? They were supposed to be good, and they are. I think it says a lot for Clemson to be selected to play them. We will be the underdog but should be able to play with them IF our up front guys have a solid game. They depend heavily upon their running QB. I hope we can force them to pass a lot. Those third down plays against scjr. killed us. More so than the turnovers I think. OSU really didn't throw the ball well against Mi State. Our receivers and DB's can really help get this win if everyone is ready to play. Support this team and staff and quit the d8&% bit&8in!
