a bit of a snoozer as far as the home slate of games is concerned considering the drop-off that is likely with Loserville and NC State. However, I can't remember a schedule that set up so well for the team.

Hopefully the bye week will result in a beatdown of NC State similar to 2014. The Textile Bowl has been way too close for my liking the last 3 years

Enjoy it, they will be every other week the season after this coming season. And probably they will throw in a Monday or Wednesday night game in there also....

I wouldn't care if they scheduled Bama for us before the USUC game, the thumb will still be up after that game. Then we move on to working on the double thumbs at once. That's right, 10 straight wins against the coots. And hopefully after that, they will end that so called rivalry, and end it with them hurting our strength of scheduling every year!!!

Back to back to back. Thanks. Even w/o Lamar, I’m sure they’ll be a handful.

Seriously? This schedule is fantastic. And NCSU will be a cakewalk this year.

As long as it's not a terrible Syracuse team! Just sayin... This is college football and there are no gimmes.

A lot of people counting their Chickens.

I learned long ago not to put an X in the win column until the final whistle blows. In the past two years we had an X in the win column that we had to erase and it was to teams we should have defeated.

@Wake Forest. Last game before OPEN date, just like

Syracuse last year.


Re: @Wake Forest. Last game before OPEN date, just like

And wake is going to be pretty good. Plus they will be playing Rice the week before. So no doubt they'll be studying Clemson earlier than the week of the game. Could be a trap. Don't think so, but who knows?

November 10th up at BC.. They will be a tough out next season I believe.

I think the schedule is awful. No challenge to it. People will compare our schedule to Alabama's last year. Will we have to squeak in like they did or will we be like the other 12-0 team this year that didn't get invited?


Alabama's results with that schedule would be fine with me.***

Uhmmm, don't get all torqued up. We can't help who we play this season. The non-conference teams we play are booked long before the season and we have to play the Coots at the end. The ACC schedule is set and our non-division teams come on a rotating basis. Throw the Notre Dame tie to the ACC games in there, and we really don't have a choice. The only opponents that Clemson has any control over are our main non-conference/non-little USC game and the creampuff game that we always play against, usually, one of the in-state schools, Furman, Wofford, or the Citadel. We need to keep playing that creampuff game because those teams deserve the big $ game and the exposure. It's only the timing of the schedule which we find out about preseason.

As for this year, we play the toughest teams in the ACC except for Miami (that would be NC State, Louisville, BC, and FSU - I don't care who is the coach, they are going to be a tough out). Also, Wake at home is not necessarily a cakewalk. When we booked Texas A&M, remember they had Johnny the Mouth Manzell (or maybe before) so the future was bright. Also, you gotta remember that the Coots won their bowl game and should have been in, and won, the Natty!!

Seriously, this is the best schedule we have had in many, many years. The lack of Thursday night and Friday night games is HUGE in my opinion.

Also, I did not realize that of 24 starters (I'm including the punter and the real kicker in that), we are returning 17 players. That is absolutely amazing. If we are not preseason #1 or #2, then something is wrong. Of course, I am sure that Ohio State and Mr. Khaki Pants will be in there somewhere. Preseason should be Clemson/Alabama at #1/#2, Georgia at #3, and I really think Miami should make a top 10 preseason appearance.

@BC might be the only real "trap" game in there based on where it is in schedule.


Wake could be possible trap


Posted: Jan 17, 2018, 2:12 PM
 

They finished strong and could be decent next year. Plus it's the game before the bye week...


Re: New Story: 2018 Clemson football schedule released


Posted: Jan 17, 2018, 2:50 PM
 

BC will be the possible “trap” game. Wake, UL and NCST lost quite a few graduates or NFL entries. FSU away won’t be easy either.

Good schedule overall.

Go Tigers!


Re: New Story: 2018 Clemson football schedule released


Posted: Jan 17, 2018, 3:32 PM
 

I don't really believe in such things as a trap game, but sense you're talking it, just maybe Furman, the 1st game of the season could be a trap game bc we're looking ahead to @ Texas A&M;)

2021 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg


IMHO, the most interesting games are A&M and BC


Posted: Jan 17, 2018, 2:07 PM
 

A&M because JF is there and it will be interesting to see how fast he can make them good ...

BC because I think is a diamond in the rough, always play a great D and their offense was starting to show real life.

2021 orange level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

Nov 10 at BC..........


Posted: Jan 17, 2018, 2:11 PM
 

That is the one concern I have marked......November in Boston....could be BUTT Cold then and it will be their red bandanna game. Plus, BC gets their stuff together as the season wears on. Just sayin'

If we overhaul our offense and let them play up to their potential and talent we will take care of business. If not, it is a guessing game.


Dang, Swoffie loves us now that we are money

I like the schedule. Only concern is Boston College. BTW, We just can't get away from Jimbo Fisher. Maybe, he wanted to go there just so he could stay in touch ! LOL. GO TIGERS!!!

The only real flaws are NCST, FSU and Louisville back to back back. Could be tough. And it stinks the Louisville game is during fall break for the students, won't be as big of a crowd

Also, Georgia Southern and Georgia Tech back to back won't be fun---2 option teams in consecutive weeks. Protect your knees!

That’s about as balanced a schedule as you’ll ever see. If we don't go undefeated against this schedule next year, something is very wrong.

Open up the offense and we will take care of business. Stay predictable and we will be ho hum.


At Texas AM, maybe they will have fixed

Great schedule for a great year. Could hardly be better. Let's root for 12-0 to the Acc-C and then the CFP.
