Wow this is fun

So following up on last night's post on how extraordinary 2018 was. Its hard to understate just how special the run we have been on the past 4 years


Since 2015 Clemson is 54-4 overall, but hidden in there is that we're 18-2 vs ranked opponents. And 9-2 vs top 10 opponents. Of those 20 games only 5 were played at home. 15 were either away or neutral field. The average ranking of those 20 opponents was 9.05 in other words top ten. Our average margin of victory was 13.35 nearly 2 touchdowns. We've averaged 5 ranked opponents a year in that time and at least 2 top 10 each year.

When you listen to the list of schools Clemson has beaten in the last 4 years it reads like a directory of the football elite. It's best to read this out loud Virginia Tech twice, Miami twice, Auburn twice, Texas A&M, Florida State 4 times, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Notre Dame twice and Alabama TWICE!

To put that into perspective I'll compare that to the school that complains the loudest that we don't play anybody. South Carolina on the other hand is 1-15 in games vs ranked opponents. We've won more games against ranked competition than they have even played. Their average was 10.8 and if you take us out its 13.5 . In other words we help their schedule, they hurt ours. Their average margin of defeat was 15.56. We beat ranked teams big they lose to ranked teams big. Oh and do remind them that we have a 9-2 (81.8%) record in the SEC in the last 4 years with the only losses coming from Alabama. How have they done? (this one works for Georgia too)

Clemson has more wins over Alabama in the last three years than any other team in the SEC.

I will say that even though we only played 5 of those games at home we were lucky as heck that 2016 Louisville game was a home game. I don’t know if we would of won if that one was away. Our crowd played a HUGE factor in winning that game. Lamar and co had numerous offsides/false start calls in the first quarter (some of them back to back) due to the crowd noise. It took them a while to get the offense going and you could tell the Louisville players were intimidated early on. Even Kirk said something along the lines of “Ive been to Death Valley many times but I don’t know if I’ve ever heard it this loud”.

That's the luck of the draw. They had their chance the next year, and blew it then too.

Despite all the nonsense on T-net, every now and again you get a post like this from this guy, that has the kind of info you would NEVER get from the football media. This is great stuff.

Nice work Orange-White.

Those stats remind me a thought I had the other day when RJ Mickens had us in his top schools. I am sure our coaches have made him aware that we have beaten all of the other schools that are recruiting him since 2012 except for losing to Alabama twice in the playoffs.
