We need some perspective on last night. Flashback to Nov

2013: Tajh Boyd and the Tigers turn the ball over 5 times in Columbia and let the Gamecocks win their unprecedented 5th game in a row in the series. They were in our heads, Spurrier owned us, people wanted Dabo fired.

Here's what we've done since that night in 2013:

- 21-point-5th-straight win over the Gamecocks. That's our longest winning streak in the series since 1940.
- 2nd undefeated regular season in 4 years. That's only the 7th in Clemson history and 3rd since 1950.
- 3 ACC Championships in a row, playing for a 4th next week. No team in ACC history has won 4 outright in a row.
- 3 CFB playoff appearances in a row, playing for a 4th next week.
- 2 National Championship appearances.
- 1 National Championship.

If someone told you in November 2013 what had just happened last night and said you'd be upset about it, you'd have punched them in the face.

I was annoyed at the Defense myself last night but the attitude I've seen from some fans and a large contingent of the Clemson media has been laughable.

Did the D play up to its own standard last night? #### no. Does it mean we're going to get blown out by Bama? Venables is a pretty decent coach. There's a good chance he's going to get it fixed in the 6 weeks between now and the CFB Playoff.

Let's let the man do his job and sit back and enjoy how far this program has come at this moment.

GO TIGERS!!

I agree but would add 2 things. First, I think it is more of a concern than annoyance with the secondary. It's a race to fix the problem before others can exploit it. Second, I think that a lot of people are like me and don't even like giving USuC a moral victory, and I think that they got that last night. Just because we are not satisfied, don't take that as a sign that we are unhappy.


They've been taking moral victories out of our wins for 100

years, last night was never going to be any different, regardless of the score.

Considering how well the secondary has played the rest of the year after TAMU, I'm leaning more towards that being an aberration than a pattern. They held up well against Finley and Jones who are better QBs than Bentley IMO.

Granted, the Gamecock's offensive plan was to get the ball out fast, but the D-line wasn't helping the secondary by getting pressure much of the night either. There was blame to go around everywhere. I'm comfortable we've got time to get it fixed.

I look at last night as proving that we can win in any type of game. Shootout, defensive struggle, smash mouth, air attack, ground and pound... you name it we are equipped to go toe-to-toe with anyone.


I'm thinking you forgot about Heisman's undefeated season

since 1950 though so the point stands.

I'll take a 21 point win any day. I Don't really care what it looks like.

And for the well this and well that crowd, I'd rather have a few defensive weakness exposed in a W than an L in the playoffs. Please remember our coaches are spending just as much if not more time watching that film as opposing staffs are. They'll adress those issues. Remeber the shuttle pass in 2016? Yeah me too, thanks Pitt.


Other side of coin

Who would have guessed Coots would be 32-31 since that game, had Spur quit on ‘em in mid-season, then hired Muschamp, and have done nothing meaningful ever since?

With a loss to the Citadel!***
