    Clemson played 1 team in the top 30 all year.

    Of the top 25 ranked teams Clemson had the least difficult schedule except for Memphis.

    Clemson had the 66th most difficult schedule.

    Kings of the mighty acc and state champs but they get no respect from me.

    Just look at their record vs SEC last 9 years and in the playoffs last few years. Much respect.

    That is a game I want to see.
    Clemson, representing the best S.C. can muster vs.
    the hellish spawn of African, French lineage out of Louisiana.
    Could be an all time classic.

    I don’t know what country Oregeon immigrated here from but to see him succeed despite not knowing the language makes me proud to be an American.

    Not really Cool Cock. He could have pointed out that easy schedules translate to blowout wins. This, in turn, leads to less injuries, more rest for starters and more playing time for backups. This creates quality depth when it is needed against a tough team. There is no question that not having to go through a meat grinder schedule like those teams of the SEC is a huge advantage for them. Unfortunately, it is a perfect storm for Clempson!

    Then you are living in a dream world.

    Chances are if Clemson was in the SEC East, they would be playing LSU for the SEC championship.

    @mauze1 is right... LSU and OSU are both hoping like hell to get the #1 seed to avoid Clemson in the 1st round.

    Clemson may lose in the first round, who knows? But no respect? YGTBSM.

    Regardless of who they play they're the kings of college football right now. They've whooped all the big boys time and again on the big stage. We shouldn't waste our time worrying about them. We have Muschamp, Tanner and a 4 win team that averaged 17 ppg.

    It’s partially because I’m a Virginia fan, and I’m hoping for the upset, and maybe they don’t go full throttle and get caught up looking beyond this weekend because obviously none of this is new to them. But assuming they make the playoffs (a 99% chance) they will be sharp focused and all gas no breaks, think Ferrari version, not the Moose Yugo GT version where they will beat the holy hell out of LSU, OSU, or Utah. It’s doesn’t matter who it is. If I jinx them, and they lose, I’ll eat 3 plates of crow, and I won’t be sad.

    Good time to quit watching college football and just tell your Clemson buddies. I don't care anymore because our BOT doesn't either.

    What's wrong with acknowledging that Clemson has the easiest path to the playoffs? It doesn't change the fact that they're in, but they did it without beating a single ranked opponent.

    EXACTLY,. also allows you to be able to try out different schemes defensively and offensively when you are up 40 on UNNCC, Syracuse and Wofford..

    So what? They whipped us silly for the 6th straight year.

    We are 0-4 against the mighty ACC in our last 4 contests.

    Funny that the same posters on here claim that Dabo is both a totally inept clown and also overseeing a highly sophisticated doping program.

    In reality they are less of a candidate because they lost to allbarn.

    When you get a have a full scrimmage every sat , to prepare for the playoffs you get really good , and yes they score a lot of points . Be interesting how they fare when they get punched or face a real physical team if there is one

    Dumbest post of the day. Clemson is the reigning National Champion that blew out Alabama and returned all of the offensive playmakers and the defense is better than last year. What difference does it make what the strength of schedule is? Clemson’s elite no matter who they play. At the beginning of the season some said that USC had the hardest schedule. Did that make them a good team?

    2nd dumbest post.... last year doesnt matter.. If Strength of schedule doesnt matter then why isnt Memphis, Boise st and App state in top ten?? How do YOU know that their defense is better?? Based on That schedule?? Your SOS absolutely should be factored in, that is a ridiculous claim...

    You are who you are, not who you play.

    So had App State beaten Ga Southern (Or whomever they lst too) they should be in Playoffs?? What if Boise State had beaten BYU, should they be in playoffs?? That makes 4... Then what about if Memphis had beaten Temple?? All three were undefeated?? Why would Climpsun get in ahead of them?? Why would LSU get in ahead of them??
