Dan Scott Prediction: Clemson-Wake Forest

Dan nailed the Duke game last week. But what about better competition this time around? Full Story »

I'm usually in agreement with most of what Dan predicts

(minus the Md game) however, saying it's even regarding WF having the ball seems way offbase.

The Tigers have the country's #5 ranked defense.

Regardless of what WF has done to Clemson in the past, those games are just that, in the past.

UMd used to be a tough opponent for us.

Not this year. Our D will dominate.

Clemson 42-13

Clemson football isn't fancy. Clemson football is having a good kicking game, winning with the kicking game, hit you on defense, don't turn the ball over and be able to control the ball.

I think we could blowout too, but I understand the "show me"

attitude regarding us and Wake. I personally worry that Wake will score some non-offensive TDs this weekend.

I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message.

Dan also said in his earlier blog that if we lose to Wake...

the BC game means nothing. I absolutely disagree with that assessment. The game would certainly lose some of its luster should Clemson lose to Wake, but a win over BC would certainly elevate Clemson in the Bowl pecking order and be a nice confidence booster headed into the South Carolina game.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

While I agree with that, for the most part,

I do feel the rest of the season is very much devalued if we lose to Wake. Yes, it would be nice to have a great bowl at the end of the year, but that's something we can have along with a conference crown.

To me, the conference title is what we're reaching for year after year right now, the bowl game is always there. We need to keep reaching higher and not be satisfied (though we can certainly be happy and proud of our team), or we're destined for mediocrity.

Yeah Muffler bowl over Music bowl. Wow. Who cares.***

if Clemson loses to Wake and then beats BC, we'll go to either the Peach or the Gator worst case scenario.

It will mean nothing, if we lose to WF we are out of

contention for the ACC. It isn't an opinion, its math.

We would not be mathematically out of it.

PLEASE tell me you're joking......

Boston College 4-1
Clemson 4-2
Wake Forest 4-2
Florida State 3-3
NC State 2-3
Maryland 1-4

We beat Wake, we're 5-2. We beat BC, we're tied for first. We win tie-breaker because we beat BC. Got it?


Here's how, I knew someone would ask

Posted: Nov 9, 2007 10:57 PM

Wake over Clemson
BC over Maryland

Clemson over BC
NCSU over Wake

Miami over BC

In this scenario, Clemson, BC, and Wake would all be 5-3 in the ACC. BC beat Wake, Wake beat Clemson, and Clemson beat BC. The next tie breaker would be our record within the division. Under this scenario, Clemson would be 4-1, while Wake and BC would be 3-2 so we would win the division.

FSU could still also finish 5-3 mathematically, so it is mathematically possible for 4 teams to finish 5-3. FSU needs to win out for this. I have not figured out the 4-team tie-breaker, and it is too early to worry about that anyway! I gotta go to bed. Leaving Greenville area to head to Death Valley in 9 hours!

If we lose to Wake, Bowden won't make it out of the stadium***

Sure he will....

Posted: Nov 9, 2007 10:56 PM

just not standing upright lol. He'll have to walk out hunkered down behing several CUPD officers. Hate I'll miss the game. GOD I hate my job.


Re: Dan Scott Prediction: Clemson-Wake Forest

I'm seeing a game like 38-17. WE WILL WIN THE ACC

Tend to agree with margin, but not with total points.

Posted: Nov 9, 2007 12:58 PM

I think it will be less. More along the lines of 24-17.

Riley Skinner doesn't turn it over?

Posted: Nov 9, 2007 1:10 PM

doesn't he have more ints than tds this year?


35 - 17!!! NOT EVEN CLOSE!!!! GO TIGERS***

If the Clemson players can't get pumped up for this game then they don't need to be playing football. A win today would setup the biggest game in Death Valley in recent memory, and the atmosphere should be phenomenal. Hope we can beat out Ohio St. for gameday.

The only team that can beat Clemson in Death Valley today is Clemson. Mistake free ball, we win big. 38-17. Wake is not good enough to beat us. We can only defeat ourselves. I don't see it happening. GO TIGERS!!
