Who would have ever expected Clemson to have the top ranked O line in the country 4 years ago.

And who would have thought 8 years ago

that our WR coach would be promoted to run the program and turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to Clemson? These are amazing times we are living in!

Go Tigers!!!

Well, I didn't see those references, so I'm glad, extremely happy to see tnet post this story!!

Some frickin' people insist on being negative. They just never get over being that "smart a$$" that they've always been! Jeeez!

He wasn't being negative just pointing out that we have read this article days ago!

My point is that the smart a$$ comment didn't NEED to be said. As most Momma's always said, if you can't say something nice or positive, just keep your mouth shut!

I interpreted it as negative with a smiley face and not really necessary!

We don't need whiny posts when somebody is extremely thin skinned either.

Now if that fact doesn't tell you how far we've come, nothing will. It has been a long drought on the OL but sure am glad to see that ranking. We have to keep DW healthy! Go Tigers!


#1 OL, #1 QB, WRU, and RBs not too shabby either

I can't wait for football season to get here. Well, almost. I'm a teacher, so I have mixed feelings about wishing the summer away.

take one for the team bro.


Certainly nice to see a better OL. IMO it has been our weakest link for the last decade or more. They've often been undersized but not any more. We've been recruiting bigger and our S&C program seems to be doing amazing work in the weight rooms.

Know I'm risking redundancy, but wow! As one who has watched line play over the years, this is magnificent! So "Clemson Now"! Congratulations to O-Line student athletes and coaches!

For quite a few years we had better than average "skill position" players. We have always done a pretty good job recruiting them. To me, our losing streak to USC (and others) was ALL about the lines of scrimmage!

Dabo realized this fairly early on and was determined to change this. We usually had one or two "better than average" offensive lineman. But, Dabo realized that wasn't going to cut it. It took him a couple of years to get our starting line to the quality it needed to be. He also started recruiting lineman with an attitude. On game day, they have a mean streak and it shows. But, in today's game, you have to have great back-ups too. Now, it is to the point where if we have to rest a player or, God forbid, we have an injury, there is a quality back-up that can step right in!

Success brings recruits. We have started putting lineman in the league. Before, we mostly got 2 and 3 star lineman. Now we can go after 4 and 5 star recruits.......and GET them! Hyatt is a beast, one of the best in the country. Our offensive lines now remind me of the past Stanford lines. They not only have great size, but they can move too. And, most importantly, they gotta be smart. We have the trifecta.

BTW, replace the word "defensive" for "offensive" in the above rant and that is true too. The upgrade to both lines has made all the difference in the world. Thanks Dabo and Coach Caldwell for coaching 'em up! GO TIGERS!!

Great news we usually read how thin they are.

It seems like for years we've been struggling for consistency on the O-line. It is fantastic to get back to this point. Coach Caldwell doesn't get a lot of the headlines, but he has been a fantastic hire for the team.

Does ESPN categorize us as an SEC team now???

Which of starting 5 will be drafted and what rounds??


Hoorah!!!

This is what I have been lusting after in my heart for a long, long time. So happy to see this as a strength rather than the weak link that has held us back for so long. Hold on folks. This is going to be a fun ride!

for the past 30+ years may actually have to find something new to yell other than "come on line - block some body".

Our offensive line certainly made some great progression last year, but #1 in the nation? Unfortunately that's just wrong. We're probably a Top 10 line, but let's get real folks, we couldn't get an inch against Bama on run plays. Same with BC and Florida State (though we started getting good yardage in the second half).

We've got a long way to go in order to be the best offensive line in the nation. Keep ####### working.


GET F$&KING SOME!!!!!

Coach Caldwell's first stamp of approval was for center Jay Guillermo!


Maybe a mention of Coach Caldwell would be apropos...***
