Clemson vs. Wake Forest Prediction

Saturday is one last chance to see the nation’s top-ranked team at home. It’s the chance to send the senior out in style, and it’s a chance to honor Clemson’s military heritage. It’s the last home game of the season, and the fans who will be in attendance will be treated to true football weather, with a high near 60 on a sun-splashed November afternoon. Miss out, and it’s another 293 days until Clemson takes the field at home again. Full Story »

Mackey is as good at predicting Clemson games as he is at writing blogs....

Sounds familiar, wasn't that the score of Clemson kicking the Coots ### a while back. Memory has gone bad, can't imagine letting them score 17 back then. Clemson 49 Wake 17. GO TIGERS!

Maybe he got a another job, this time working for Nick Saban trying to convince the reporters to not take the week off. Because Alabama is playing the mighty Charleston Southern football team this week.

"And now *you* understand. Anything goes wrong, anything at all... your fault, my fault, nobody's fault... it won't matter - Clemson's going to win. No matter what else happens, no matter how many points Wake may or may not score, Clemson's going to take this victory."

Name: Daniel Augustus Joseph Sullivan, ENS, U.S. Navy
Ship: USS Cristabel
The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in
presenting the Medal of Honor to Ensign Daniel Augustus Joseph Sullivan, United States
Navy (Reserve Force), for extraordinary heroism as an officer of the U.S.S. Cristabel in
conflict with an enemy submarine on 21 May 1918. As a result of the explosion of a
depth bomb dropped near the submarine, the Cristabel was so badly shaken that a number
of depth charges which had been set for firing were thrown about the deck and there was
imminent danger that they would explode. Ensign Sullivan immediately fell on the depth
charges and succeeded in securing them, thus saving the ship from disaster, which would
inevitably have caused great loss of life.

Name: Gary Evans Foster, SGT, U.S. Army
Unit: Company F, 118th Infantry Regiment, 30th Division, American Expeditionary
Forces
The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in
presenting the Medal of Honor to Sergeant Gary Evans Foster (ASN: 1311059), United
States Army, for extraordinary heroism on 8 October 1918, while serving with Company
F, 118th Infantry, 30th Division, in action at Montbrehain, France. When his company
was held up by violent machinegun fire from a sunken road, Sergeant Foster with an
officer went forward to attack the hostile machinegun nests. The officer was wounded,
but Sergeant Foster continued on alone in the face of the heavy fire and by effective use
of hand grenades and his pistol killed several of the enemy and captured eighteen.

Name: James Davison Heriot, CPL, U.S. Army
Unit: 118th Infantry Regiment, 30th Division, American Expeditionary Forces
The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pride in
presenting the Medal of Honor (Posthumously) to Corporal James Davidson Heriot
(ASN: 1311750), United States Army, for extraordinary heroism on 12 October 1918,
while serving with Company I, 118th Infantry, 30th Division, in action at Vaux-Andigny,
France. Corporal Heriot, with four other soldiers, organized a combat group and attacked
an enemy machine-gun nest which had been inflicting heavy casualties on his company.
In the advance two of his men were killed, and because of the heavy fire from all sides
the remaining two sought shelter. Unmindful of the hazard attached to his mission,
Corporal Heriot, with fixed bayonet, alone charged the machinegun, making his way
through the fire for a distance of 30 yards and forcing the enemy to surrender. During this
exploit he received several wounds in the arm, and later in the same day, while charging
another nest, he was killed.

I had never heard about Heriot until this week when I saw his name in an alumni association e-mail. For more on Clemson men in WWI see here: Brock M. Lusk, "Tigers in the Trenches: A Study of Clemson in the Great War," 2015.

I hope we don't kill the QBs

"The Deacs are 122nd nationally (out of 126 teams) in sacks allowed, giving up a whopping 34 over 10 games"

Oh god, please don't kill anyone, Shaq. This could get hard to watch. I may be in the minority, but I really found that Miami game to be hard to watch when we started pummeling Kayaa. Glad to see us playing so well, but the guy was lucky to get away with just a concussion.
