TigerNet Talk: The Flop....All Paint

by -

After going "All In" with a pair of tens, the flop comes up all paint. It looks
like there might still be an inside straight draw on the table. Clemson enjoys
a week off, and some much needed recuperation time, in preparation for their
toughest stretch of the season. Coach Dabo Swinney has made an early impression
on many of the Tiger faithful, and has re-energized this team for the final
games. If Clemson expects to keep it's hopes of reaching a bowl game alive, a
win at Boston College is necessary.

I expect most fans to stick by this team for the remainder of the year, but a
loss next week would leave Clemson with it's longest losing streak since the
1970 football season. That's not exactly what Tiger fans expected to be
discussing in late October.

This week, I weigh in on the head coaching position, and the benefits of the
recent change. It appears Tiger fans are more than willing to go "All In", but
bigger things are expected soon. Only time will tell if the turn card will
leave Clemson and Coach Dabo Swinney playing "On Tilt".

If Dabo turns out the be the answer, I wouldn't be upset. I just believe that
Clemson needs to make a statement nationally, and I am not 100% sold on THAT
statement being Coach Swinney. Have I been wrong before? Absolutely. I guess
will find out if Clemson takes a bad beat on the river, but based on the
effort and enthusiasm against Georgia Tech, I bet there are side pots all over
TigerNet Nation.
