This kinda stuff from ESPN is starting to gripe my butt.

The Clemson vs. VT game summary on ESPN website states this, "A difficult early-season schedule doesn't get any easier for No. 2 Clemson on Saturday when it visits No. 12 Virginia Tech."

No respect ever.

Could have been stated, "A walk in the park early-season schedule gets exponentially more difficult for the yet to be tested No. 12 Virginia Tech on Saturday when it hosts No. 2 Clemson."

Please Mr. Corso, don the Hokie Head.

and maybe I'm slow...

but maybe Corso intentionally picks the loser just to give them one thing to feel good about? Like, maybe he's not just really really bad at reading football teams but maybe he's just trying to give them one pick-me-up to counter-act the coming beat-down? I dunno.

An easy way to look into this would be to check the accuracy of his other picks.

I don't have the actual data but it seems like he's always

That's pretty impressive over the time span.

I love the part about him picking UGA 4 times, and they've lost all 4 of those games.

Corso has picked VT four out of the five times Gameday has been at VT. The one time he picked against us was the BCA Classic against GT in 2000. Right as the team took the field, the heavens opened up and a massive thunderstorm ended up cancelling the game altogether. When Corso got back to his rental car, it had been hit by lightning and was dead as a doornail.

True story.


Not quite true. Corso also picked Miami to beat us in 05

That very much came true.


His rental car absolutely got struck....***

Yes, the lightning story is true

However, it isn't the only time Corso ever picked against VT with the headgear. In 2005, he picked Miami (who was the underdog) and the Canes managed to completely dismantle us in Lane. The final was 27-7... and the game was worse than the score indicates.

Is this a serious complaint? Smh



It's definitely a road test man. Doesn't matter we're the #2 team, it's gonna be tough test. Coaches will the say same.



You know complaints like these are starting to get old.

Wish things such as that was the only thing that I had to complain about. If ESPN completely ignored the Tigers it would be a different matter but Clemson will be mentioned dozens of times on tv today .
The Tigers are at the very top in college football... enjoy it.

Almost as old as your constant ##### about stuff on the board.

@ClemAlum07 I recommend you find somebody else to stalk and troll. I hear that's what you do best on here is argue with people and make their Tigernet experience helI.


misread that as grope

That's probably going to come back and bite us with the CFP committee.

I hope this was an attempt at sarcasm. If so, it wasn't very good

If not, well you're just an idiot

HTH

You don't have to worry about Corso......he want let us down.......Go Tigers!!!!!


Remember AUB & LOU were world beaters before Clemson games


Posted: Sep 28, 2017 6:56 PM
 

Then they were grossly overrated. Think VA T is about to be considered overrated?

Corso has stated before that he won't pick CLEMSON because we will boo him. So - we're good. :)

Don't let us down Corso - pick the turkeys.


Anyone with half a brain knows that we'll win that game.

You have to remember ABC-ESPiN is an entertainment business. They need to build drama to ensure eyes on the screens during the broadcast. As the days close in on the game the talking heads will pick Clemson as the favorite but just by a hair.
