1981 National Champion LB Otis Lindsey

Bumped into Lindsey at Lowes in Irmo and he commented on this years Tigers. He, like all of us is expecting Clemson to win the Natty of his year. His comment: we have a QB that can chunk it this year! I couldn't agree more! Go Tigers!

I think we have a great chance if we beat ND. I say if only because this years team hasn’t been battle tested like teams past. BC and Duke helped us a bunch and I’m hoping the coots did too in the fact we can’t take one play off.

On the flip side, ND hasn’t either. Hate to admit it but unfortunately the schedule was what it was. Years past we had fla st, Lewisville, and va tech that gave us adversity and games in the 4th q. This isn’t a negative comment or thinking... but I’d feel more comfortable if we’d have played that caliber team.


Go Tigers!!!

But we have lots of seniors on this team that has been more than battle tested, and they know how to pull the younger guys together!!!

are probably more battle tested than any team in history in The Playoffs.

Most Alabama players leave after 3 seasons and Saban doesn't play backups nearly as much as Dabo.

The only player that starts would be TL. The most important player, but also the only player.

Go Tigers!

Oh, no doubt about it. We got players and play makers to do it. My only concern is the backend of out D. ND has a good oline and book is a good qb. As I was trying to say in the last post is we really don’t know how good ND is either. Nothing you can really look at and say, here’s their weakness.

Kelly is trying to talk his team up because he sees ND's weakness in their eyes....They haven't been here before and it will show. We have, therefore 'WE' are their weakness. Our 'WILL', is their weakness. I think some folks on here need to grow a pair and enjoy and believe in this ride we on cause it will not last forever. I revel in the talk of being one of two or three powerhouse programs and I can hardly wait until our Tigers force our WILL on the fighting Irish and crush their spirit.

The only thing I will disagree about with is Kelly does NOT see his team weaknesses. He sees a very good Tiger team but he is clueless about his golden domers. If anything he is arrogant

I've actually found Kelly

To be pretty realistic in his comments so far. In 2015, my sense is he felt his Irish squad was truly the better team and expected to win. This time around, he knows Clemson can out-talent his squad, but the Irish are solid enough to win if enough breaks fall their way. Let's face it, this Irish team is better than the Pitt and 'Cuse squads the Tigers stubbed their toes against. That said, this Tiger squad is definitely more talented than the one on the field that 'lost' Friday night in Syracuse last year.

Their biggest weakness is lack of overall team speed. They are big and strong, built to go toe-to-toe in a heavyweight title fight. We can play that game on D, but that's not our game on O. Speed kills and we have it in abundance. They don't.

Thanks David78, that’s the kind of analysis I was looking for. I caught some of their game against cuse and some of the game against the real usc but other than that, I haven’t seen them play.
