"Leave no doubt"

Posted: Sep 25, 2017 10:42 AM

I am loving the chatter from the Hokies and the talking heads prior to this game...

Leave no doubt was the message that Dabo delivered to the team prior to the Louisville game...
Lot's of talk about how the Cardinals coulda, shoulda, woulda, beat the Tigers last year..
Similar talk leading up to the VT game about how we scraped by last year..

I expect to see a more focused team..more like what we saw against Louisville..
VT is not a great team...maybe not even a good team...they are well coached..but really haven't played anyone (outside of a similarly overrated WVU squad)...

It's a credit to Dabo and our staff that they manage to get the #2 ranked, defending National champs to continue to play with a chip on their shoulder....make no mistake the Tigers will show up angry with something to prove in Blacksburg...

Clemson 38 VT 17

We didn't "scrape by" last year, we let them back in the game. There was one point in the 3rd quarter, they were down by 3 TD's...

If we didn't lose O'Daniel to targeting last year that game wouldn't have been close. They exposed Jalen Williams that entire game

He didn't say we "scraped by," he said THEY said we

He didn't say he said we "scraped by" either***

^ Bingo.

Was just commenting about what the Hokies are seeming to think. They seem to forget they were down by 2 TD's twice in that game and 3 TD's once, never tied the game a single time.

I know what happened in the game last year...

I'm not saying we scraped by last year...

That is what the talking heads and the Hokies are saying...

And that is exactly my point...this kind of talk will perfectly feed into having an angry Clemson team arrive in Blacksburg

so what's your drink of course when they roll out the field goal unit Saturday nite ?

Probably a Coke Zero...

This ain't Tommy Bowden's Clemson Tigers..if it were I'd be petrified of this game and not just field goal kicking...The Tommy Bowden era...a team like VT would punch us in the mouth and we'd fold..
Now...punch us in the mouth..and we're going to get angry...

Our offense was off against BC...but to hold a D-1 team to 7 points...that is no joke...this is not a football team anyone should want to make angry

I don't believe the game will be close enough to worry about FG's

don't disagree with anything you saying - BC was about what I expected too.

I am just worried about our FG kicking.

we wll need a few clutch FG's later in the season - and VT is no joke about special teams.

probably a few "Dark & Stormies" here to have with the game


VT is #12 in the country...

So I would at least rate them "good."
