whupped thatass if we played a TOUGH schedule to get ready! Because, unlike Alabama, we would not have been tired out, because we play more players than anybody.

From the fan of a team that got blown-out by 6-7 Purdue...

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

So we have:
Wofford
Charlotte
TX A&M
South Carolina

The Buckeyes have:
Florida Atlantic
Miami (OH)
Cincinnati

Is anyone going to actually argue that our OOC schedule is easier than Ohio State's?

Seriously, Charlotte and Wofford ?????? 2 FCS schools in the same season.


And no one else in that thread caught the premise was 2 FCS schools,when they aren't 2 FCS schools on schedule.LOL


And one idiot kept complaining we had "2 FBS" teams

on the schedule. I guess he doesn't know the difference between FBS and FCS? Pitiful.

In that entire thread nobody ever mentioned the fact that Charlotte is actually an FBS school. Football knowledge is scarce on that board.

Cincinatti might legit be better than South Carolina

but no their OOC schedule is not good. Just playing one marquee OOC game each year is likely tougher on it's own than playing 3 MACish teams. The very best G5 teams might be a bit of a challenge, but there's really not much difference between playing a lower end G5 or an FCS team like Wofford.


Its understandable ... want to be well rested for the Natty.***

I'd post a reply on their board but I'm scared of committing a trademark infringement. It's tough to write without using the word "The".


We play a good schedule when you consider

What I can't grasp is who the good teams are in the B1G? Where's their tough schedule come from...the same 'source' as the SEC's?

Face it, what the majority of college programs want is a Tiger loss that will keep Clemson from the CFP. That's their route to a Natty...Clemson's absence.

Here's a tidbit for all other programs to focus on...quit trumpeting your conference and try to figure out how to be the 'best version of yourself'. One program has figured it out...marches to the beat of it's own drum and vision. Of course, there are a few other nuances in the mix that are unique to Clemson and that, frankly, is truly what makes the 'secret sauce of success'. ;)

I don't even get that. His entire argument is basing on the non-conference SOS. he's not mentioning the ACC scheduling in that...he's griping about Charlotte and Wofford being scheduled, but....

1) Charlotte is C-USA and is an FBS team, not FCS.
2) If he fact checked a bit, he'd see that the last time OH State had a stronger Non-Conference SOS than Clemson was the 2014-2015 season....and even then, Clemson's was top 10. But Clemson has been top 10 since 2013-2014 seasons, top 2 the last several years through this run:

App State won in the big house? I’m sure there were fans complaining about scheduling them .. before the game. Even more complained after the game!

I’m sure this is not the last you will hear of the Tigers schedule. It will certainly surface when the BCS committee starts making their own ranking.
Hopefully Dabo will use all of this as even more motivation for the team. Playing Wofford and UNCC really means you can not lose any game along the way. A one loss team who plays those two will likely not get respect over some others who play a more difficult schedule. AND... the Tigers are going to get everyone’s BEST shot. There is a lot to gain IF you can beat the best.


If you can't beat them...out message board them***

I think both of our schedules suck this year. Every team will have a weak one from time to time.
FWIW, doesn’t sound like many on that thread agreed or supported him. The first response says it all.
