    Projecting, baseless accusations, obvious bitter envy, badly disguised as belligerent illiterate hostility with a little bigotry thrown in... Yeah, why would that be embarrassing? I must have been mistaken.

    I am curious about the "d mine." Is that a large tunnel into the ground where defensive players are found?

    I wouldn't call it baseless. Even during ACC Media days a reporter brought up to Dabo that he had lost 78% of the players that produced Clemson's offense in 2016.

    Dabo had the most baseless response in that exchange sayin that Deon Cain is one of the best WRS in college football and if you check his last season stats, I think he had less receiving yardage than a true Freshman that played for us named Bryan Edwards that he said should not be a WR during the recruiting process.

    What exactly do preseason rankings mean? Absolutely NOTHING.

    Louisville is favored against them, and the game is in Louisville.

    Maybe. But there's no arguing which conference sends more players on to the next level; that's a pretty important metric for "better" IMO.
    Perhaps, but so what? The argument that Clemson plays in a weak conference is still old and tired, no matter how many people Alabama, LSU and Auburn send to the NFL.

    Go pleasure yourself...Tater!

    That is a 4 win drop off. What do you consider big?

    Big AL, I can see you're intimidated by Clemson football, but don't give us credit for a great 2016 and 2017 season yet. 2017 season hasn't begun. God also doesn't appreciate you bearing false witness against your neighbor. I'm sure the church you refer to would frown on that also. Peace

    Chase Brice might be a player later in the season also but will be well behind the QBS already on campus. Unfortunately, Clemson has some tough early games this year so preparation time will be limited on a staff decision about who to go with for the Auburn, Louisville games.

    I'm talking regular season so compared to 11-1 that would be a drop off of 2. I would not consider that big

    Maybe Dabo started a water slide and a couple players got hurt:

    I agree, last years success was due to many players, however, missing these two is a huge reason they don't win more than 8 games this season.

    This recent discussion about Clemmy's WRs etc crystallizes why the tater faithful are going to have a sour time this fall - they believe they're reloading now as opposed to a year or two (potentially). They won't be able to handle the 3-4 regular season losses I see on their schedule. It's as though they've completely forgotten they were one NCSU-choking kicker on a gimme FG away from not even making a p/o appearance last season with the best team they've ever fielded.

    Wait and see.

    Maybe Louisville could possibly "upset" them (I don't care who's favored - that works in Clemson's favor every time), but I'd bet on Clemson! Fla. State's their competition this year & Clemson has them at home! Seems to work out for them! Last year at Fla. St. the Seminoles would've won had their defensive back not fallen down on a pass play late! LUCK is so important in these situations as the N. C. State punter missing the chip shot! Clemson has a LOAD of rabbits' feet in their chest - always have - and that's not criticism - just fact. Frank McGuire always said he'd rather be lucky than good and Clemson OWNS "lucky"!

    Sorry - I still think it's a much easier road in the ACC than the SEC. It'll take more than one year to change that. That's part of the selling point for Dabo & Jimbo (just ask Bobby Bowden)!

    I cant speak for other Clemson fans but im very content with the team and program. Things have happened over the past 6 years that I never thought I would see. I know that at some point will have a (hopefully brief) falloff so no reason to worry about it in my eyes. I was not a Dabo fan for the first few years but he has proven me wrong and I am now of the mindset that he and the coaching staff have a plan for the personnel losses and will do the best they can with what they have.

    I am thoroughly convinced that Clemson is cheating. It's in their DNA . Makes no sense that they could far out recruit everyone except Alabama in the country given the school, it's location, history, social problems and just being a little school in Pickens county with nothing much to really do. Do not get shocked if their success leads to their downfall.

    Clemson seems to land on the feet, tho! They do have Fla. St. at home this year! They're a pretty lucky institution!

    Might want to check those receiving yards of Cain and Edwards.

    Don't forget the phantom offside in ACCCG the year before last.
    The horseshoe up their ass is named Swofford. Granted, they took advantage of their opportunities. We didn't when we were on the cusp. Sucks.

    And it was true when Bowden said it...25 years ago when FSU became the 9th team in the ACC. Are you arguing that the SEC was a better football conference than the ACC in 2016?

    No - last year the ACC won over the SEC teams they played,. I still say the SEC is the stronger football league over the longer period - a year doesn't change that - and I think Bobby Bowden said that less than 25 years ago while explaining their decision to join the ACC - was still the case & still is IMO!

    YOU REALLY BELIEVE A CHURCH IS PASSING OUT MONEY TO DIFFERENT PLAYERS, IF THAT WAS THE CASE SOME PLAYERS WOULD BE ALREADY TALKING SAYING HE GOT MORE IN THE OFFERING THAN I DID, BETTER LOOK ELSEWHERE THAN A CHURCH

    It's ridiculous, but all fan bases do that.
