Louisville Game Scares Me Not...Lamar Was a Flash In The Pan

Yes, he's dangerous but with much of his supporting cast gone, BV and crew will shut him down for the most part. Also Clemson will not turn the ball over 5 times.

FSU is about the only game that has me a bit uncomfortable.

I'm a touch concerned about auburn primarily bc it is so early

And I think stidham will be comfortable initially. However, I think the dline is about to break him into southern football or at least football where we actually play defense. I think if we win 2/3 of of the auburn Louisville and fsu game we may be back in the mix again.

They'll have a couple arrests between now and then.

We have seriously played down to them the last two years. The overall talent of the two programs are heading in different directions. I feel like our guys would have to seriously underperform to lose to them this year.

I do agree that our lads have kept them in the game almost every year. Additionally, now that most of those Charlie Strong Defensive players are gone, I expect to see those Petrino games of old, where game scores are 45-38.

Kinda hard to make a prediction on turnovers.***

Why we haven't wiped them out in all games. No comparison on talent and coaching. Jackson became less of a factor in games as the season progressed. He is a good player (CLEMSON recruited him) but I don't consider him a world beater! If we can keep possession of the ball our defensive guys should be able to limit Mr
Heisman to average figures! I am sure that coach Dabo will have the Tigers ready to play for sixty minutes.
He better! That's a long and expensive trip and I WILL be there.

Well 3 years ago when they came to clemson it was close bc DW broke his finger and had cole stoutd play so that's why that game was close. We should have handled them at LU the next year but they did have a very talented defense and DW had to find a new #1 bc mike was hurt I think that's that was close and this past year at clemson was close bc turnovers. This year they lost that defense and playmakers and we have blue print to stop Lemar now this year I think the talent gap shows finally!!

This is so true.

Precisely Yes, but to say we have less than 5 is pretty safe***

NC State

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

Better stick vippisu in there somewhere. The trip to Blacksburg will be no picnic in the park


VT lost a lot on both sides of the ball...

While VT can be a tough place to play, this is effectively a rebuilding year for them.

But their fans will be shaking keys. So there's that.

Same here!

I agree with that order as well.

VT is in a re-building year. However, Justin F. (HC) has been known to be a recruiter and a very good coach. He has brought VT back into the football scene in the coastal. However, with Clemson's D, and their starting QB along with major losses on offense, I think it's a Tiger win.

What about the chickens? We all know the at the end of 56-7 that we weren't that much better than them, "or better at all."


After Bama destroys fsu, they won't be the

Same all yr... Louisville repeat for fsu..

Tbh I'm more worried about Auburn and FSU mainly. Fsu is loaded this year but I think we can def win glad it's at death valley this year. LU game I'm on the fence they lost a lot of stars on defense and their oline is still weak. With the blueprint that was laid last year, I think people know how to handle Lamar now and he won't be a surprise like last year he won't be surprising anyone early this season! It's at LU and they always play us tough so it won't be easy but with our defense I'm more worried about FSU then Auburn!

Behind FSU, NCST scares me the most. They always play is incredibly tough in Raleigh, and now they have revenge on their mind. We may be more talented, but we almost slipped up and lost at home with probably a more talented team than what we'll have this year. They get their QB back, their D-Line is nasty, and belief is a powerful thing. They saw last year that they can beat us, now they want to prove to the world that they will. The crowd will be wild, and maybe worst of all, we get them the week before FSU, so you know no matter how much the coaches preach "this week is the most important week" there won't be a single player on that team that won't be at least thinking about Florida State, especially if both teams are undefeated at that point, or both highly ranked. The only sense of calm I feel is maybe the guys will be more locked in on NCST this year and not just "show up" like they did last year, because of how close the game was last year and will give the Pack our full attention

We actually dominated NCST last season but TOs deep in ours and their end keep it way too close .
The Pack will be better this season and it will be a tough game.
Heck we have beat them like 13 out of 15 but most of those game were nail biters

Nc st should an easy game for the coaches to get players attention. Easy to show they almost got beat by them.
