Some of you people are just plain crazy...

I see all this "Oh man, trust me, we don't want any part of 'Bama" nonsense all over the place on these boards, and not just from coots.

Couple that with all this whining about how we don't deserve a BCS game because we are not that good and have no signature wins.

I have one question.

WHAT THE H3LL IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?

Look where this program is now compared to 5-6 years ago. Well, I'll tell you where we are. NATIONAL RELEVANCE. We've literally reached a point at which we can have a 10-2 season and still be considered a top power in college football with a chance to get BCS bids without even winning our conference. And some people on here act like this is the worst thing that's ever happened to Clemson Football. Do you know how we've come to this place?

WE BEAT GOOD, RANKED TEAMS REGULARLY.

WE STAY RANKED IN THE TOP-15 CONSISTENTLY.

WE RECRUIT AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN PROGRAM HISTORY.

WE DON'T LOSE TO WAKE FOREST AND THE LIKE.

Seriously, I can't understand all this doom and gloom. We finally get to where about 90 other programs nationally would like to be, and it's like the world is coming to an end.

Well, I do want 'Bama. And I do want the Orange Bowl. If some of you don't give us a chance and would rather slink off and play in some mediocre, mid-level bowl, then find another team to cheer for.

GO TIGERS.

I DON'T THINK YOU CAN BEAT 'BAMA, I KNOW YOU CAN.

Geez. Sorry for the rant. But holy crap. Enough is enough.

ALL IN. Unlike some of these fools.

There's also an opportunity to win a game here.

Somehow that is lost in all this woe is me we only won 10 games and we might lose sometimes garbage.

With that said, none of us are playing so lets hope for the best.

Me personally i would rather play Ohio State which would mean they would have lost today thus maybe not too excited to play for the orange instead of the crystal ball

Anywhere they are not almost guaranteed a win. We have to win against a top tier team to keep this program moving up. There is always the possibility we will lose or play poorly but I relish this teams opportunity to prove something.

That is why you play it!!! No one is perfect. Bama knows, so do we. We have two losses, they have one.

I am totally sane,and
NOTHING IS WRONG WITH ME.SO
WHICH GOOD RANKED TEAMS HAVE WE BEATEN REGULARLY?
Georgia ,imo,was not as good as advertised.
We have lost the last two games to FSU,and the last five by double digits to the coots.Our only BCS Bowl game I think even you wouldn't care to relive.
TOP 15 WON'T GET YOU BCS BOWL BIDS (unless it's an odd scenario like this season).
FSU,UGA,and SOUTH CAROLINA ALL RECRUIT AT HIGH LEVELS.
Ask yourself why we didn't land Winston,or Gurley
and Marshall, or Clowney ,or even James Davis little brother Mike.ALL HAVE BEEN INSTRUMENTIAL IN BEATING CLEMSON.
MAYBE WE DON'T LOSE TO WAKE,AND THE LIKE,BUT RIGHT NOW NEITHER IS FSU,BUT THEY ARE DOMINATING THOSE TEAMS IN A FASHION THAT IS TO BE ENVIED.
There is no doom ,and gloom with me.
I just don't think we are as good as you think.
South Carolina is definitly better than us.
And as far as the 90 programs that would like to be like us,how many programs are there currently that Clemson is trying to be like? Maybe not 90,but the ones who are there are consistent.We are not consistent.
Now as far as Bama,let the chips fall where they may.
If we go to the Orange,and win ,then fine.
BUT IF WE LOSE,THEN REMEMBER,TOMMY BOWDEN'S LAST SEASON BEGAN WITH A LOSS TO WHOM?
YOU GOT IT,THAT WOULD BE ALABAMA.

Yea,but who were those ten wins against?
I don't recall a win against the coots,and only one against FSU.Oh,and UGA allthough their season didn't quite pan out to where our win was really all that outstanding.
Sometimes,it's not the number of wins,but the level of competition.

"WE BEAT GOOD, RANKED TEAMS REGULARLY."
Actually, we are 5-10 against teams that finish in the top 25 (the only poll that matters). Probably go to 6-13 or 7-12 after this year.


"WE RECRUIT AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN PROGRAM HISTORY."
Based on what? Star rankings? Why is it we have severe gaps in DB, LB, DL, OL, and RB? Sure, we have some stellar athletes in Boyd and Watkins. Bryant is very good as well. After that.... what? It takes more than a few big names to make an entire football team, and we lack depth in most positions.
