Let's don't be THAT fanbase

Posted: Oct 19, 2016 5:12 PM

One would think that our current coaching staff has built up enough equity to not be called out for a turnover filled game and the perceived excuse making that some say is going on. Really people. As if we need a reminder here is a short list:
1. Coming within an eyelash of a natty while putting up 500 plus yards on Bama's D
2. A 20 Game home winning streak.
3. 27-1 in the last 28 games when DW4 has started and finished as QB
4. What will be 3 first round draft picks in the last 4 years at WR
5. Back to Back first round draft picks at DE
6. Putting a plethora of 2 and 3 stars into the league (Grady Jarrett, Kevin Dodd, Jaron Brown, TJ Green, Adam Humphries to name some
7. Putting programs like FSU, Oklahoma, Oregon, Florida, Georgia, Auburn, Ohio State in our rear view mirror as far as overall quality of program

I will agree that I'm not keen on excuse making either but this is not the Tommy Bowden excuse making staff of the last decade. Our coaches and players have earned the right to be trusted. A great deal of coaching is managing personalities and egos. Some kids need to be called out and others need to be coddled. Surely our coaches, who spend the most time with the players should know how to best manage them. Correct?
I understand that the window for a natty closes after this year (At least until 2018). Did I mention we do a fair job of recruiting as well. Let's give our staff the equity they have earned.

everything in life. Sadly every fan base have those and Clemson is no exception. Why would they be satisfied with 21-1 unless we won those games by 3 TDs or more? Go Tigers!!!


I gave you a point but I'm wondering why you think...

I'm wondering the same thing. Last I checked not every national championship team has a stud QB, but we will just happen to have a stable of them next year. Don't write off next year's season before it plays out brotha!! We too deep for that!!!

I may be totally wrong but I know there will be a learning curve for the new QB whoever that turns out to be, while breaking in a new center, TE, replacing Williams, Ben, Tank, and finding a bell cow at RB. Once again I see next year as an 11-2 type team. With that being said I believe in 18 we will be right back in the playoffs. Watson and Jameis are/were generational type talents whereas history says that there will most likely be a stumble in at least one road game for a first year QB. The bottom line is that the program is as strong and deep as it has ever been.

Good call - hard to argue.***
