I didn't know they had a football program. I don't see how this would help our team or look good for us in any way possible.


Good gracious, I hope not***

Did people complain about Ball State this much?

We don't have to play a team like them to make a foot print there. There really isn't much, if anything to gain for Clemson by playing that type program. I'm sure there are many programs we could play that would help our program and our image more than this, and the Tahj Boyds of the world know about Clemson, already.

odu will be an fbs[7/1/14] program when we play.


Posted: Jun 1, 2013 10:16 AM
 

tidewater is on the edge of clemson's priority recruiting area, the 6ish hour rule; most programs use it.

it's filthy with talent, has 40% of south carolina's population in a much smaller area, is mostly untapped by cu and if it replaces an fcs opponent, it's a big up.

would i rather play an oklahoma? sure, but not sure they're available.

will be interesting how the upcoming playoff impacts some things.

I get it, but I'm thinking more about respect, strength of schedule and post season ramifications. Agreed, it is a great area with lots of talent that we need more focus in, though.

go into tally, take down the noles in doak, beat uofl, uscjr and the rest, we'll get our due.

Posted: Jun 1, 2013 3:11 PM
 

I agree, but teams like that do not help us very much, other than by getting some non-starters some PT, which is worthwhile. Still, it really doesn't add much to our credentials, and we do have to constantly defend ourselves and the conference in which we have to play.

Honestly, I don't think we need to play Old Dominion in order to get a better grip on recruiting the area haha. I think playing VTech and UVA will do plenty.


we've been playing the gooblers & the hoos for 50 years.


Posted: Jun 2, 2013 1:43 AM
 

how many kids from tidewater have come to play football at clemson?

it's a benefit, haha of an fbs game, haha.

true

However if we're going to go with the "let's help recruiting" route, let's play Southern Cal or Texas A&M.


We should play Indiana, Iowa State or some such instead.***

Few teams I would like to see on future schedules

Posted: May 31, 2013 8:43 PM
 

course it starts with Ga, but others would be...

Oklahoma St
Wva ;)
Oklahoma
More TCU

NO FCS TEAMS


Posted: May 31, 2013 4:40 PM
 

We don't need to ANY FCS teams. And IF we are going to play an FCS team we should keep it in state imo. If you want to go for an easy win how about start with some lower level SEC and BIG teams.


ODU is Division I as of this year***

At least they'll be an FBS team in name that year. It definitely won't help strength of schedule if/when that is part of the formula for the playoff.


We already have a full schedule for 2014


Posted: May 31, 2013 4:48 PM
 

Coastal, UGA, Scar, and Central Mich + 8 ACC Games

Lifelong Tiger but went to ODU

Posted: May 31, 2013 5:37 PM
 

So First I am still cheering for the Tigers, the only reason I didn't go to CU is b/c I could afford out of state tuition.

That being said ODU will be a full member of Conference USA and if they keep their current coaching staff, this will not be the cupcake game you are expecting. Its 2 years from now, and who knows what can happen but put this in the FAU, Central Florida type of colleges that make a jump to the Big Leagues and are competitive relatively quickly.

Still Clemson should kill them


sad....... truly sad!***

totally agree.

Does this help or hurt our strength of schedule?


Posted: May 31, 2013 5:48 PM
 

Might help after playing a Maryland or a Wake.


On scheduling an easy game we should always...


Posted: May 31, 2013 6:01 PM
 

Schedule a school from SC.

badge-donor-05yr.jpg

or Georgia Southern, UAB, Troy, Memphis, Tulane any


Posted: May 31, 2013 11:49 PM
 

southern states around us where we recruit heavily.


Re:I think I have rather play Wofford. Maybe.***


Posted: May 31, 2013 6:44 PM
 




No, because of OD (FCS) in 2014 until FBS in 2015


Posted: May 31, 2013 8:32 PM
 

Coastal Carolina and Old Dominion are FCS in 2014


Old Dominion and Coastal Carolina are FCS team in 2014***


Posted: May 31, 2013 8:39 PM
 




We should play Idaho, New Mexico State or Wyoming instead***


Posted: May 31, 2013 8:41 PM
 




Ga Southern.***

Love this a D1 school in a talent loaded area. We should make this a reg thing. Maybe even do a 3 for 1 and go to ODU. I hate playing D2 schools from SC. Does nothing to help our program. Wish we would put ODU and ECU on as full time.

Come on Radakovich. This is a no win for Clemson. If we blow them out, it's no help because it's expected. If we win, but not a blowout, it hurts our image as a program. It certainly hurts our strength of schedule when bowl consideration and national rankings go. There is nothing to gain here. Please don't make a GT out of us. Same goes for the Furmans, the Citadels, the PC's, and the SC States of the world, et.al. Lets play big boy FB and get a little respect.

Clemson isn't going to schedule 4 top teams for OOC games every year. I know everyone would love to play an ACC schedule plus Georgia, South Carolina, Oklahoma State, and West Virginia every year but it doesn't happen like that. Games against ODU, Presbyterian, Coastal, etc. almost act like bye weeks. The starters can play a half, pad their stats a little, and then watch as the 2nd team finishes them off. If we played 12 games without a single "cupcake" OOC game those players would be so banged up by season's end. Schedule Old Dominion would be more exciting than seeing SC State or Furman for the 150th time.
