Ross is a great player

But the football writers don’t have a lot to write about right now. He is one of the top WRs in College Football. I can’t think of a top ten team that has higher rated recruits at the WR position that Joe N, Ladson, Amari, Powell and EJ. Ross will be missed, it it is not like we have not recruited the position at an elite level for years now. Throw in some TE and Rb passes and I think we will do all right. # 9 seemed to have the best receiving game in the Fiesta Bowl if I remember correctly.

Pundits have always put the loss of experience at a high premium , and they're not wrong for doing that .
In some positions and in most situations the loss of a highly skilled player hurts the team it's happened to .
You're right , we have a lot of highly skilled dudes returning who are capable of stepping up and filling the void , but aside from Amari ( returning starter ) they have all played sparingly or are just getting their feet wet .
We will see . I think Ngata and Ladson are plug-n-play stars in the making ...Powell is a guy that has shown flashes .

Clemson is in the position that only a few college teams ever reach.

They don't rebuild, they reload.

It won't last forever. Enjoy it while it does. FSU had the longest run of this than any team in the history of the NCAA. 13 seasons in a row with 10 wins. 13 seasons in a row finishing in top 4. Note: Finished 2000 ranked 3rd. Lost to Oklahoma. AP dropped us to 5th. Winning 10 games during that period was much tougher. 11 game season and a bowl game. But, far more difficult was finishing in the top 4.

Bama has won 10 games 12 years in a row. But 4 of those, including last year, they finished out of the top 4.

Ohio State has an 8 year streak of 10 wins. But, only 5 of those are top 4.

Clemson has a 9 year streak of 10 wins. And more important than that, the last 5 have been top 4 years. (Ohio State is currently on a 2 year streak. No other team is more than 1.)

Don't take what you have now for granted. (It was common talk among many Nole fans in the mid nineties that if we didn't win the national championship it was a bad season.)

Clemson fans are richly blessed. Enjoy it!

If a big game were coming next week and Ross was suddenly out, the line might change ONE POINT.

The oddsmakers would recognize that the loss of Ross would just mean that others from a very talented roster would step up.

Ross wasn't the only arrow in the loaded quiver.
