Median point spread 2016 vs 2017

The 2016 Clemson’s median point spread through 10 games was 6 points while the 2017 median point spread through 10 games is 14 points. A winning comfort margin better than double last year’s at this time. So far this year none of the wins required a miracle. Not so gut wrenching this year.

By reading a great many of the posts on this board, one would think just the opposite was true. It's almost as if the coaches know more about winning football games than the collective wisdom of this board. Good post.

If you have confidence in the coaching staff and team the gut wrenching is minimal during even the closest games. On the other hand, if you're standing in a strain because you think an 80 million dollar coach is playing the wrong guy at quarterback you're suffering gut wrenching when your team is three scores ahead.

hmmm - I think the coaches are great. I'm gut-wrenched because a bunch of guys who are just old enough to drive are playing with weird ball that's pointed at both ends and bounces funny. Besides, where's the fun of watching football if you're not completely invested and emotionally overwrought?

??? I prefer all the easy wins we have had this year. The main reason for that has been KB’s legs with the legs of the RB’ and Ray, Ray’s special teams leg work. Without that, this would have been a rebuild year. The one game that we didnt have KB’s legs and the first game without our starting place kicker leg was a loss. Running offense lead by KB complemented by a great D puts us at #2. I played football. Running great usually beats passing great. Two of the three things that can happen on a pass are bad. Running keeps the defense fresh

Gut wrenching is when you up only by 3 points and fsu is driving to score and have a miracle intercept. Gut wrenching is when you run KB up the middle 3 times in a row and give NC State enough time to try to win the game.

Or stopping a hail mary at Auburn.

Or eeking by Troy on your home field by 6? Or knocking Louisville out 1 yard short of a 1st down that might have won them the game. Or watching NC St miss a short game winning FG and then winning on an INT in OT? Or bowing up against FSU in your own territory hanging onto a 3pt lead.

Yep but to only lose 1 game a year you are going to have to find ways to win those games. The last 3 years we have. It has carried over to this year with new leaders on the team.

Last year we had about 4 regular season games like the NC St game this year. So far that has been the only one.
