Will impressive victories over Tech and SC be rewarded by

the committee? Wishful thinking, but if Watson returns to form for Tech and SC, we should win big in both games. With all of the emphasis by the selection committee on taking a completely new look at the teams every week, will that help us or is it too late?

How much do you think a win over a 5-6 team should count?

GT, maybe.

If we roll those teams like we did NC State or UNC they possibly, but I think the playoffs are out of the question. Best we can hope for is to be in one of the big 6 bowls this year.


I would look at it from the stand point of how good of a

team is Clemson with one of the best defenses in the nation and an explosive offense that can throw the ball all over the field to a variety of weapons(wr and te are Clemson strengths) and with a serviceable running game and a quarterback that can make plays with his feet when the play breaks down. A team returning several key injured players and much improved over their early season losses on the road to a Top 2 team and a Todd Gurley led Georgia team behind a different quarterback.

It's simply a question of whether or not you are one of the best teams in the land at the end of the season or not. Yes, SC sucks, though Georgia Tech is good, but there is a point at which an ### whipping of those two teams would be considered proof of how good you are.

Clemson, with a win over FSU, would be in about the same

spot as Michigan St. or Kansas St. right now. They had a shot...missed it. Maybe next year.


An SEC 5-6 team is like a 10-2 team in any other conference***

I'm not so sure even with a win over fsu they'd put us in.

God knows they're going to try to force bama in they were talking about how if fsu lost to notre dame, the 5th ranked team in the country, they would be albeit eliminated and moved out of the top 4. Yet ole miss barely wins games against teams that aren't very good and gets beaten by a pretty down lsu team that was 24th in the country when they beat them yet ole miss doesn't budge. That's horse shite. Miss at will drop one but you can bet they'll drop no farther than 3.

Well we haven't covered a spread since NC ST. It will take 3 convincing wins to finish in the top 15. Hopefully GT wins this weekend so it'll at least be a top 25 matchup for us, we're not getting any love barely hanging to wins against teams we should handle....even with the back up QB. Dabo needs to start finishing games with style points too, that's why I didn't mind that late pass up 14 in the closing mins last night.


win out and we're in***

Impressive victories over #24 GT and unranked SC?

We ain't jumping over 17 teams (including 4 from the SEC) with those 2 victories. Nor should we.

rewarded for the team we would be at the end of the season with a considerable move up in the polls and not be stuck around 21 like we have been after unimpressive wins, but wins none the less.

Possibly get into the top 10 and get a good bowl matchup.

Gotcha. Win out and we'll be around 10 or 11...***

The scheduled burned Clemson this year. The teams were awful on the schedule other than FSU, UGA, and GT if they finish strong.

Who would have thought the other instate school would pull the strength of schedule down so low.

Clemson 11-2 vs great FSU, UGA, good USC, GT, Louisville, and a big bowl against a national power would have ended in another top 10 season.

The issue if GT loses to Clemson and falls out of top 25, Clemson could end the year without a win over a ranked opponent.

Who would have thought that at the beginning of the season?

Not a good year for USC to be bad, it hurts credibility

I could see us creeping into the top 10. I just doubt eSECpn would ever let us in. Dag gone!
