The toughest "easy" game on the schedule has to be @ NCSU

It seems like we never play well up there. It was a struggle 2 years ago when we were an out of bounds call from being in a real dogfight. The time prior to that, they smacked an unmotivated Tiger team. Of course I think we'll win, but that's one of those games that no one will really think much about that could be tough.


Any informed Clemson fan will tell you they know

this will be a tough game. I actually expect it to be a tougher test than Louisville.

I agree! Historically, FSU, GT & NcSt have been ths ones to cause problems in conference.

NC State game, especially on the road, is never really an easy one. Plus, I think they are getting better. They have gotten some good recruits lately. DLs & RBs. They got 3 great RBs in this class. Hines is a blazer. Kinda like Ray Ray. A little bigger, maybe even a little faster but not as shifty. Fraizer & Gallaspy are very good also.


Game is also on Halloween and...

Could quite possibly be a night game. ESPN will play up the Wolfpack for a Halloween night. Wolfpack has 4 cupcakes to start the season 4-0, then they get Louisville at home and Va Tech, Wake on the road. Probably a 5-2 and possibly a 6-1 team for our matchup.

Also if you look at the schedule for that weekend their aren't a lot of other big match ups to fill the ESPN night slots.

Tigers will be 7-0 or 6-1 at this point. At worst 5-2 but I really don't see that happening.

This could be a night game and the wolf pups fans will be pumped up.

No matter what ESPN pumps it as, their fans will be jacked for Clemson coming in. Could be a noon game, they would still pack the house for Clemson. And I think every game on Halloween gets pumped up as a Halloween game lol


NCSU at Carter-Finley is never easy.

And they will be an improved team this year. I think this will be our trap game. We'd better not sleep on them.

at Carter-Stinky in recent years. Much of that "NC State plays CU tough at home" talk is the stuff of urban legends going back to when #### Sheridan had the good run against Coach Ford.

2005
CU 31-10

2007
CU 42-20

2009
CU 43-23

2013
CU 26-14

And what of Miami ? That is a sure trap road game if you ask me . I know we are the better team , but on the road in a stadium none of our guys have ever even played in for Clemson ? Could be sketchy .

it's one of those screwy road environments with 15-20k fans in the stadium.

Toughest "easy" is scjr @ their house fighting for .500

Vs their arch nemesis/older brochella.

They'll be hyped not just to qualify for a bowl season game likely to be played in alaska, but it'll also be their past glimmering hope of not watching Clemson in the 4 team playoff from Mom's house this New Year's Eve.

playing on the road is never easy, but honestly

We are better than the Wolfies at every position. This should be a 14 point win.


It doesn't feel like it but we are 10 for the last 11

against NC State.

For some reason, I feel like we dropped 5 or so but I guess they have just been close games.
