Yahoo ranking says trajectory 'down' for Clemson athletics

Following an over 20-spot drop in the Directors' Cup rankings, Yahoo Sports designated Clemson's athletics' momentum as "down" in its yearly Power 5 all-sports program rankings.

Clemson slipped from 50th to 53rd out of 65 teams in the rankings.

"They might as well hang a sign in the athletic department that says: 'Football School. Everything Else is Background Noise,'" Yahoo's Pat Forde writes. "The Tigers won another national championship in the chinstrap sport but plummeted 21 spots from 2018 to ’19, down to 73rd. That might be the school’s worst finish in the 26-year history of the Learfield Cup (results from earlier than 2004 are not readily available)."

The Yahoo ranking actually bumps Clemson up a few spots from their place among Power 5 programs in the Directors' Cup, which was 60th.

The Tigers are one of six ACC programs in the bottom 15 programs of Yahoo's Power 5 ranking, joining Miami (51), Wake Forest (56), Boston College (60), Georgia Tech (62) and Pittsburgh (65).

Notable other rankings include North Carolina (8), Florida State and Virginia (10), Georgia (13), Alabama (27) and South Carolina (28).
