Clemson ranked No. 1 in preseason ESPN FPI

One indicator in just how good the news has been for Clemson this offseason is demonstrated in ESPN’s preseason Football Power Index. After several draft-eligib Read Update »

They've said that Clemson is an $ec type school so many times they forget we actually aren't.

The bias will come out next year to start the season. Remember how, despite winning the Natty, Bama was ranked number 1 to start the season. With that ranking, it carried them into the playoff because they "spent SO many weeks at number one"

The knock on us was losing so many starters, and production. Well, the table has turned.

Anyone with an open brain can see that we return the most talent & depth in the nation.

Having those multiple weeks at number 1 carries weight at the end of the year. There's no doubt we'll be in the playoff once again. It will be a matter of seeding after the season plays out. Nobody should leapfrog us if we stay undefeated.

Can't wait.


I lololed at ND being in the top five.

But I did wonder why USCw isn't in there after being just as over rated as ND for the last decade.

Does TigerNet like ESPN's FPI now?

Clearly our score would be over 30 if it weren't for ESPN's SEC bias.

ESPN must be televising Clemson at Texas A&M.

Nobody that I've read translates these advanced metrics into real performance. What they do is set expectations before the season starts and during the season. Whether these expectations are met is up to the team's play. Hope they're right!

That trend of, "no team in the #1 preseason spot or the #1 college football playoff spot has went on to win the national championship", needs to be broken this coming year. This team definitely has the "stuff" to do it.

They saw how well an angry Bama did taking out Clemson.

They just want them angry again.

Photobucket is holding my sig pic hostage. Screw them.


The FPI means absolutely nothing

Of course I agree with the reasoning behind why Clemson is #1, but it's beyond insignificant. The so-called metrics they used to determine the best teams (Strength of record, Strength of schedule) are inherently biased and really shouldn't be used - but then it agin, it is ESPN we're talking about here. Besides, speculation this far out doesn't deserve any merit, even if it favors Clemson. Just my .02

I've waited years to see Clemson play right here in my backyard. I've spent a small fortune going to all the championship games, playoff games, and have season tickets. So hoping they make the Natty this year and only have a one-hour drive....!!!

San Francisco didn't pony up the incentives to build the new stadium for the 49ers.

True....they voted the stadium down a couple of times. Didn't want to pay the taxes for the stadium. Big loss on both sides.

This offense is going to be our ticket. The defense is stacked and they will take us to the playoffs. Our offense is the key to winning. If KB can mature as a throwing QB we are set, if not than we have a couple of huge arms to back him up.
