Clemson ranked No. 1 preseason for first time in Coaches Poll

History continues to be made in the Dabo Swinney era and the next stop on that road is Thursday’s preseason No. 1 ranking by the USA TODAY Coaches Poll, a schoo Read Update »



This makes me smile, but...

my preference is to be the hunter rather than the hunted.

Of course, we ain't gonna sneak-up on anybody now anyways.

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


If we were number 2 nobody would notice us

The only bad thing about this, if you want to call it that, is that we will not be able to better our final ranking vs our pre-season ranking, which we have done for the past many years. How many is it now? A small item in the big picture but it was a nice streak to have. Can't finish any higher than #1.

We'll be unanimous #1 at the end of the year, so technically we'll be slightly improved.


Looks like we will have to settle for 8 in a row and

a push (when we win the National Championship this year), folks. This is what it takes the stop the streak of being ranked better by season's end than our preseason ranking.

Bama in the AP Poll. Lots of publications and media members have been pumping Bama as #1 again this year.

That is a good thing in my opinion. Lack of respect is like juicy steaks for hungry Tigers. Just being ranked #2, #3, or #4 entering the playoffs will be fine. We could care less if the Tide gets the mid season #1 ranking. We have no problem with Gamecocks fans boost them to pre-season #1 either.


Well ain't that nice....

the 2 “Celebrity Conferences” have over half the teams in the Top 25.

Top loading the preseason polls has always worked as a barrier to protect there superior status.


let the big and sec both get two teams in

bs start in week 2 of the season lol


We were screwed a couple of years ago....

...The defending National Champs should always start off as #1 until a game is lost. About time we got the respect we earned.

I hate polls but...Coaches Poll is likely most credible.***

Not to me. Coaches don't watch many games

and are mostly only worried about their own team.

59 to 6... THAT says a lot! In fact, I'm somewhat surprised.***

Bet the coots (currently #42) make it into the top 25 prior to the bama game if they win their first two games in an effort to give bama a top 25 win.

beating a 2-9 team and a 1-AA team won't move them 17 spots

besides they won't beat Carolina

Coot5 Check in @ # 42....lol Go Tigers!***

The coaches poll is right-on plus Vegas has the Tigers as the odds on favorite to win the 2020 National Championship. Tebow, who is going to win it all this year- don't say Alabama. Someone send me Tim's address and I will send him one of these shirts. I'm buying a hoodie when the weather changes.
For those interested these and others are at Amazon.com Put Clemson 2020 National Champions in the the search bar. See you at the game-
GO TIGERS!!

Before anybody starts popping the corks on champagne bottles...consider this....No team ranked #1 entering the playoffs has won it yet...not once! Clemson won it both times entering ranked #2, and Bama won it twice ranked #2 and #4. The #1 ranking attracts news clippings and magazine covers that motivate the #2 team, and risk complacency on the #1 team. I am not saying players will knowingly give less effort, but when you need players to play better than they ever thought they could, being told you could beat some NFL teams, does not push the players in practice. Seeing ESPN say you will likely get blown out, might prompt a few more reps in practice when you are exhausted. A few more pushups. A little more sweat. That is human nature...so please ESecPN, get back to giving Bama the mid-season praise, call them the likely best team all year. Please say they might can beat NFL teams. Say they are un-beatable and are #1, #2, #3, #4, and #5.Clemson just wants their spot on the ROY bus, with a chance.


If the historical streak continues, we'll end up ranked #0.***
