Has Clemson closed the gap against FSU?

Reality check for both teams in Tallahassee.

After 2 uninspiring wins, IMO the Noles will peak for this game.

People keep forgetting we fumbled on the first play. Without that play the game would have been much much closer. Sure the score looked bad but if you think FSU is on a completely different level than Clemson you are mistaken. I hope the FSU players feel the same way and Clemson comes to play.

year.

Y'all had one of your best games of the year against us. We had one of our worst. I will say, there is still a gap but it is not a canyon.

My one other observation about last year. Clemson was not ready for the hype. I think they said up to 50 to 75 interviews were conducted before the game. There was a lot of build up. We did not handle that very well. So, it was a lesson for those still on the team.

I look forward to a competitive game.

GO TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

up our avg. arrests per semester and meet a higher quota of investigations by the D.A.

Once we do that, we should be close.

I guess the better question is, has FSU closed the gap? ;)

"I've played multiple sports and would bet any amount that I'm still more athletic than you at this present time...."


Good Point

and the answer is FSU closed the gap created from '03-'09 when Clemson was 5-2, by going 3-1 since '10.

There's an obvious gap since Dabo became your coach. Daba is 2-4 vs FSU with a 2 game losing streak. Fisher is 3-1 vs Dabo.


I don't think there was an obvious gap in '12

The only times you guys clearly looked better than us was '10 and '13. And wouldn't you agree that while your team last year was better than Clemson, you probably weren't 37 points better? I think that blowout and the championship has kind of skewed FSU fans' and the media's perspective of the series, whereas from some Clemson fans' perspective it was a fluke.

The reality:

NO team....home or away, recovers from two or three very early turnovers!!

FSU took advantage! The crowd had the wind taken from them, thus the team lost the will to fight!

This year, I hope we return the favor in kind!

Go Tigers!!!!

We can win with our 2nd best QB***

Yes and here is the strategy

I think the entire side line of Clemson should hold crab legs in there hands with lots of butter and lemon and start boiling right there ..

"Clemson Is Coming" says Stephone Anthony (Class 2011)"
"Why NOT Clemson"
"Why Not Dabo"


We will have to play A++ to win down there.

I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility to win this game, but I also don't think the FSU we have seen the past two weeks is indicative of how loaded this team is.

We are going in as dogs for a reason...hopefully we can prove them wrong.

Also, make no mistake about it. This is the ACCCG.


the gap of the last 2 years or the gap created when danny

showed danny the door, because the last 11 or 12 years there is no gap.

You hope so. If you only scrape by you fall out of #1.***

and suddenly FSU is head and shoulders above Clemson's program? I certainly don't see it that way. Over the past 10 years this has been a close rivalry. We have recruited competitively with FSU over that same time span. Because of your dominance in the 90's FSU fans tend to have an inflated self worth, but let's not kid ourselves, in the 2000's your program was mediocre at best. Clemson is not immune to this inflated ego syndrome either. Our success in the 80's caused our head size to far out weigh our performance on the field during the 90's and early 2000's. Sometimes it is hard to admit that your favorite team just isn't all that great, but that is exactly what both teams were during the 2000's. So far this decade both programs have been on the rise. Last year, the pieces came together perfectly for FSU and you were able to reach the top of the mountain. You should be commended for that. But make no mistake, both programs can see the pinacle from where they have positioned themselves this decade. There is no gap, in talent, in coaching, or in facilities. Now it's just about who's willing to scratch and claw to reach the top.
