Regardless of some of his rants in recent years about Clemson, the guy does make me have a good genuine laugh sometimes.

None of them are our friends or our enemies based on where they want to rank us. They are only enemies if they do what Finebaum did and try to create moral controversy where there is none. Or like Kornblutt and attempt to distort facts in order to help a certain coot program.

This debate over the top 4 is so unimportant. We will be 2 or 3 if we win out at worst. Relax.

I agree. Rooting for Minnesota and for a big win by either 'Bammer or LSPU.

I try to do my best to not go against the grain where another Tiger is concern bc I love Clemson FB and Clemson as a school for a higher education, and I feel that all Tiger fans feel about the same way, and Solid Orange I can not agree with your opinion that what has happen with Our Tigers being left out of the top 4 as unimportant, not even for a second bc our coaches and player have worked their butts off bc it is important to them, and it's important to me that they have done what they do for themselves and for Tiger Nation. And I'm proud to say that I am a die hard Clemson Tiger fan, and I love my team, and any Tiger fan that has made those long trips to DV for years to see our Tigers play proves that Tiger Nation loves their FB team, and everything good or bad that happens concerning our team is very important to me/us, and we have been disrespected!!!

We may not play in the strongest conference, and we may play down to some of our weaker opponents, but our Tiger FB team are the defending NC, and we haven't lost a game since going 15-0, we are actually right now a 23-0 defending NC, and for the committee to leave us out of their first ranking of the top 4 is a direct disrespect to Clemson, our couches, and to the young men that make up our FB team, and it is important, and it pissses me off at the highest level that them sumbitches had the gall to disrespect Clemson and everything that connect Clemson to the men, women, and the young men that make up the Clemson Tiger FB team. If I had a way to speak to those that make up that committee, I wouldn't have the slightest problem of letting them know exactly the way I feel about the way they deliberately disrespected the Clemson FB program with all the hard work those guys/ladies have put into staying at the top of college FB!!!

Lighten up Francis. That attitude is what feeds that
media monster. Relax. Those guys are going to cannibalize each other. This is all for tv ratings. One could say that they did us a favor. Light a fire under our team's ####, and pay the price. The committee knew that's not how it's shaking out. But whatever. It's all tv and advertising dollars at this point.

You are 100% correct. The disrespect hits the fan hard but those that sacrifice day and night to preform at a top level it hits very deep. Our team coaches staff put their heart and soul into being the best which is the standard. And it shows on the field, classroom and their daily lives. For some committee to take an undefeated power 5 conference team that is the defending champion and not find a way to place them in the top 4 is absolutely ridiculous

This group of men lead by an unbelievable coach will not loose. They showed that at UNC this year and have shown US that for the last 4 years. Whenever the lights get bright we play top notch football.

The entire country has no idea what this team can do if we have to play 4 quarters. Minus the UNC game.

We still got the ball back after UNC scored. If we needed to, we probably could have scored again. We didn’t need to, so we didn’t. Things will work out. Trust the system. They are looking for dollars now!

Whenever I think about how tough that UNC game was for our team, the first thing that comes to mind is that our coaches were matching their FB experience up with a very savvy older coach that has been around for a long time and has probably seen more FB than most that are still coaching in this day and time as in Mack Brown. Also Mack Brown has won a lot of FB games by dissecting and matching wits with other top coaches, and he has won his share of the games.

I would say that Mack Brown had our game against his guys circled from the minute he saw Clemson on their schedule, and they put in a lot of time practicing for what we do that he had seen on tape from more than just this season of games, and it showed bc his team was well prepared for what we do on the field. I believe that our talent level was the biggest difference in our game against UNC.

UNC has lost 4 games this season against a whole lot less talented teams than ours this season, and I believe that's mostly bc those teams didn't have a thick red circle around their names the same as Mack had circled around our team!!! If that is to hard for "THE Committee" to understand or take into consideration, then maybe there should be smarter FB minds on their committee!!!

Why use a comma when there are no periods to catch your breath with? Clemson Graduate or just a fan?

You don’t have to take a breath when “our couches” are fairly comfortable.

My only issue is that PSU struggled to win over Pitt. I watched the game. They were #### lucky and lost the stat battle. To say that Clemson is the only team of the 5 to have a game like the UNC game is simply not accurate.

What's going to be funny is when UNC beats Pitt next weekend. I just don't see Pitt being that good. their biggest win margin was 10 points over GT and Ohio. Heck they only beat Delaware by 3 points. But yet still had a chance to beat Penn State.

The whole B1G is no different from any other season....totally overrated. Clemson would demolish OSU by 20+...AGAIN. PSU, even worse. Let the committee do what they’re doing now and just create media drama & ratings. Clemson is the best team in the country & it’ll all play out when Dabo raises the golden scepter again in January.


Re: TNET: Stephen A. Smith on Clemson's ranking: "It's a travesty"

Understand completely, and as Dabo has just said, he prepares his team for November, and in August September, and October he uses for building depth and experience... Just like the way he destroyed ND and Bama last season in our 15-0 season, it was all bc of more depth with some experience. I pity who ever we're matched up with if they allow Clemson to show the country just what the team they have been disrespecting is really about.

I'm as bias as any Clemson fan in the country, but with the Dabo coached Clemson teams, our biases has actually been proven to be a matter of fact IMO, especially when it comes down to win and losses!!!

I previously didn’t care for him but Coach has gotten in to his camp. Not a bad thing at all.

Smith is the biggest blow hard out there. Agree, disagree with the committee ranking but a travesty? I think not.

Not knowing Steven A's way of describing his thoughts, I'm thinking that his use of travesty is just a figure of speech for him. It's maybe not the proper use use of the word "travesty", but I have heard him use the word often in his descriptions in the past....
