Syracuse 2nd best in ACC


Posted: Sep 23, 2018 12:20 AM
 

Dungey can ball, and they've been fairly impressive from what I've seen.

May even be ranked next week.

However, the fact that they beat us last year has me feeling confident.

BV and the defense will play with an edge, and TL and the RBs should gash them all day. This isn't last year's offenses with TL at the helm.

I'm going to say 45-21 the final. What say you?


Should read: Syracuse 2nd best in ACC?

What say you?

My ranking goes something like...

1. Clemson
2. Miami
3. Syracuse/Duke


Miami second? I know the ACC is down right now, but...

Have you watched Miami play this year?

They might struggle against UNC on Thursday. And that team is pure garbage.

Miami on a good day... maybe 4th best? I think 5th best seems about right. Don’t get me wrong. Richt has done a FINE job so far (compared to Golden). They can at least score against us now which is the first step in Tha U’s return to glory.

I agree the ACC is garbage but why should I care?

At Clemson and Alabama we care about National championships at Georgia and South Carolina you care about Alabama National Championships.

Remind me...

Does Whorsia play anybody worth a #### before Bama in the SEC championship? I don’t follow them, or post on their message boards.

We'll play multiple ranked teams......Cu may not play another in the regular season.


After Alabama Georgia Auburn and A&M the SEC is

hot garbage. Anyway who cares, I pull for Clemson and not some conference homer like all you SEC fans. Alabama fan base extends to every other SEC team fan base, it’s pretty sad and actually pathetic. Keep kidding yourself into thinking your pups belong with the elite, haven’t done anything yet but choke a national championship away.

The funny part of this is you think your the SEC's equal!


Nope, Clemson is superior in ever way to any SEC college

Football team has better character players, play every single player in uniform when possible, care nothing for personal accomplishments by playing as many players as possible.

Did you know, I’m sure you don’t so check stats :

Clemson played entire 2nd team D, EARLY in the 2nd quarter. First team played well under half the snaps. FACTS

All 72 dressed players played in the game. You know what that means, it means Dabo and Clemson cares about the players. It’s not about the individual, it’s about Clemson. I know Kirby Smart cares little for that style, play em in the ground and done with them. To each their own, but Clemson does it the right way and is simply better from top to bottom.

It means a lot to you I can tell, but Clemson simply plays in the ACC. I pull for Clemson, you keep that SEC banner flying high Mr Dawg since you can always lean on others that way.

I don’t think we are the SEC’s “equal”, we are better than all schools not named Bama or UGA. We are 8-2 in our last 10 SEC matchups, the 2 losses to Bama in the Playoffs. It has been 49 months since an SEC team not named Alabama has beaten us.

Dungey goes all out and Dino is fired up but they do not have the wins that Duke has. How is that Army win looking today? At NW and at Baylor right after that. Much tougher than basically beating a crapy FSU team at home.

I agree with you. The entire football team will be motivated to exact a bit of revenge on the Orange. Dungey is a gamer no doubt. I anticipate a special plan for them. Their tempo(ironically) was giving us fits last year.
But, what really cost us that game was we kept putting the defense out there. Syracuse never felt the pressure of having to "climb a mountain"! They came out hot and stayed that way and we couldn't consistently move it; the end.
This is the type game if we cross the 50 and have a 4th and 2 or less you go for it. B/C Cuse has the ability to score in a hurry.
Agreed. Cuse is the 2nd best team in the ACC right now!
What will be different this year - "our depth at DE has to show up and be in Dungey's face some"! L.Y. they snapped it; and the ball was out. I would guess more jamming on the LOS. The secondary must hold up long enough for the DE's to impact the game. Our advantage in the trenches must "show itself"!
Should be entertaining!
Go Tigers!

Defense was half the problem last year. We had busts in the secondary, lined up offside a few times, extended drives with personal fouls and when the game was on the line at the end Syracuse ran off the last 6 minutes of clock because the D couldn’t get off the field. They are a very dangerous offensive team that doesn’t need any help from penalties on the D.


Re: Syracuse 2nd best in ACC

Calhoun2® Yep! Those "m.e.'s" were due to the Syracuse tempo. The lining up off sides especially. They knew they couldn't block us up front so basically they didn't. The QB got it and faded to where they had an advantage at(WR). I thought for sure after that game our offensive coaches would "remember the power of tempo" and start going super fast again. But, no we are more methodical than up tempo.

We have to be successful on 1st down defense. When we get them in 3rd and long; we simply must get off the field. Any lead against them early and it will be interesting to see how they react to it.

Glad to see somebody else saw the same game I watched. Only question is can their O travel? They took it up to Western Michigan for their opener but that was a little different animal.


Last year was a freak anomaly:

Posted: Sep 23, 2018 12:44 AM
 

1) KB was hurt
2) Huegel was hurt (we missed 3 FGs)
3) We faced a spread hurry-up with less than 3 days to prep since we had to fly all the way to NY.

We won't lose again to them. But I do hope they tear through the ACC. They haven't lost a non-conference game yet, and we need someone on the schedule to step up. Duke is 4-0, too. It'd suit me if their only losses of the year were to us seeing as how nobody else in the ACC can do anything.

NC State is CLEARLY the 2nd best team in the ACC. Their QB will likely be a 1st round NFL draft pick.

Re: Syracuse 2nd best in ACC

As of right now, my top 5:

1. Clemson
2. NC State
3. Miami
4. Duke
5. Syracuse


Re: Syracuse 2nd best in ACC

80sBabyGotBack No way NC State and "Doreen" are # 2. Cuse is easily #2. State has a really good QB and that's about it. State lost a ton of starters from last year! That's why they were so highly regarded last year! Have not been close to being tested "this year"!

I think Miami is better than their showing vs. LSU.

Duke is good. You have to have better players; b/c Cutcliff will have them executing well.


V. Tech must have been sleep walking - they are talented when motivated. Playing in a High School stadium probably had them wanting to get the win and get back home. And, it cost them! To ODU credit.

Your list is good but needs to include BC! Hey, Purdue has just had some tough losses. BC ran into a buzzsaw yesterday; but will be dangerous! Remember; we did not open up the score at home vs. them l.y. until the 4th qtr.

NC State lost a ton on defense but their entire (almost) offense is back. We don’t need a lack luster game against them and expect to win.

Va Tech was physically beaten by a bigger, stronger team from what I saw yesterday. It was an alley fight and they came out with teeth missing.

But their 6-5 boundary receiver is pretty darn good. Could give us fits if we give them time to throw. Max pressure.
