Clemson in the playoffs


Posted: Oct 24, 2014 4:38 PM
 

I know its very unlikely, but what would need to happen for Clemson to get back into the picture?


Several teams

great defense

offense is starting to click

good losses so far

with an upset or two, we're knocking on the door

A lot of losses but weirder things have happened. LSU won a natty as a two loss team and without nearly as much SEC bias.

Find time machine. Step 2: Go back to August 30, 2014. Step 3: Beat UGAy. Step 4: Keep winning.

Sadly, I think we're going to be sitting this year out of the Final Four with 2 Ls.

This is my take on what would have to happen:
1) We win out
2) FSU loses 2 conferenced games, putting us in the ACCCG .... which we must win. This is highly unlikely, but not impossible. They have road games at Louisville & BC, and home games against UVa and an improving Miami team. Long shot for sure, but not out of the question.
3) All but 1 of the one-loss teams in the current Top 10 would have to lose a second game.
4) Still not sure the Committee would smile on us, but they would have to think long and hard about it.

Close - but not that difficult -

FSU looses 2 - we win out + ACC champ and we are right there. Riding a 10 game win streak with a top 3 defense - and DWatson (the Juan) back, breaking single game records - #7 with 1300 yards and 14 TD's - media darlings - having beat SC 63-17.

FSU looses to Louisville and VA - calling it. Winston cries on ESPN. Then rapes a frat pledge in a bizarre incident involving crabs.

Most realistic reply

And highly unlikely. But for a play or two in Tally and we would be right in the conversation now.

Playoffs are just a glorified version of the BCS National Championship

Same thing remains true in order to get in. A: Be undefeated or B: Be a one loss sec team...nothing will change about that

Not happening .Get the D right and win out next year .Hopefully Chad reinvents his old self with new wrinkles and we have a chance in 2015.


Lots and lots of chaos. Esp FSU losing a bunch

Then have Uga win out, while the SEC West each have at least two losses.

We would just have to luck out from the mix of a bunch of 11-2 teams.

An 11-2 Clemson Team will be ...

An 11-2 Clemson team will be hard to keep out of the playoffs. Such a record could be seen as 11-1-1 and would help in a decision between Clemson and some other team.

Obviously Florida State would need to find two losses for Clemson to achieve the 11-2 record. It's possible for the Seminoles to lose two ... as stated by others above.
