The conventional argument of "you lose x starters" does not apply to Clemson.

If I'm reading the depth chart right, we have one senior on offense and 2-3 on D. And we'll probably lose a couple Juniors. So we're not facing a terrible amount regardless. But with the way we develop players, I'm not sure that rule applies. I think you have to look at how many snaps your line-up has taken. We almost never see a "new" face starting a season...they've almost always played significant snaps the season before.

What a program.

Dabo further addresses this issue by playing almost all of his players, so even though we may score a few less points or give up a shutout, injuries or graduations don't hurt very much. Dabo is in for the long game, not just the next game.


Bama, AU, OSU, LSU and many other teams lose...

players to the NFL and exhaustion to NCAA limits every year. The last five or six years when the sports media has brought up the subject of team losses Clemson seems to be the only team discussed.

Sir, I stopped grieving over players leaving five years ago. I watch our backups carefully and know we're going to be OK no matter who moves on.

Yep. Wilkins is special and our biggest loss next year but Huggins has looked very good.
