#NeverForget

Last year the media said we couldn't win the playoffs because Clemson wasn't battle tested. Clemson didn't play anyone all year. Oddly enough, it wasn't right after the national championship game, but it was during the summer when that narrative changed to how Clemson had an advantage against Bama because we didn't play anyone all season.

Now, about 4 months later, the narrative has shifted back to "Clemson isn't battle tested."

Patterns repeat, after we obliterate the fighting nut necklaces, we will meet LSU from the mighty SEC. After we absolutely abuse their soft defense, what do you think the narrative will be? My guess is "Look, LSU had to play Bama, Auburn, Georgia and Oklahoma before getting to Clemson. Meanwhile the only team Clemson played all year that was ranked at the end of the season, prior to playing LSU, was Ohio State in the semi-final. Clemson benefited from playing in a weak ACC all year, which gave them fresh legs in December and January."

Oh, and spoiler alert - a year from now, when Clemson is 13-0 headed to the playoffs again, we will hear the "Clemson hasn't played anybody" narrative some more.

Yes, it's a bunch of bullshyatt. No, it won't change until the ACC gets it's collective $#!t together. But yes, we're about to dominate two playoff games, so eff em all anyway.

Don't forget that they'll say the Buckeyes were slightly overrated ( ala Notre Dame 2018 ) and that Georgia probably should've gotten that spot ( ala 2018 ) .
Then they'll act like everything they've said all season was accurate and meant that what just happened was in their line of sight all along .

from the humiliation of being so ridiculously stupid in the past. They've made fools of themselves more than once. Is Steven A the only one who realizes his foolishness and has learned from it? Maybe Colin Cowherd?

I'm beginning to think every member of the media is simply a fan. Not of Clemson. And their fanhood prevents them from being impartial/realistic. There does seem to be a legitimate anti-Clemson bias. It must be jealousy fueled by thinly-veiled fanhood.

he/she didn't watch a single Stanford game the year McCaffrey finished 2nd in the Heisman voting. Do you really think all of these media members watch Clemson games during the regular season? Do you think they watch Dabo put every player into the game against UNCC? Do you think they watch us hold Wake, a team that had the 13th best offense in the country at the time, to ~100 yards of offense? Do you think they know that when people thought Trevor was "struggling with INTs" early in the season that one of those INTs occurred while he attempted to throw a hail mary at the end of the half while scrambling towards the sideline? Or that two INTs against Louisville came from his receivers running their routes incorrectly?

No, the narratives build, gain steam and all of a sudden dominate the landscape. We narrowly won at UNC against a HOF football coach. A coach that made it clear his first day on the job that they could beat Clemson. The Clemson game was literally the only game Mack Brown talked about when he was hired and they had a pretty brilliant plan in place for that game.

But to tell you the truth, I love it. Dabo used it, his players feed off of it. All they do is win. The look on Trevor's face after the ACCCG as he was being interviewed said it all. To me, it said that our Tigers are here to shut everyone up again and if you doubt Clemson, they're gonna let you know. Again.

get cutigerbob® to be the objective 3rd party decider here. It's a lot of responsibility for him, and he has to promise not to post until December 10, 2020.

I find it a bit humorous that we all say that these talking heads are so full of crap and yet we continue to get upset by what they say.

This why they PLAY THE GAMES !!


thanks for writing what apparently only we know... TU
