Dont let the ESPN propaganda media pump you up over a freshmen qb whose toughest road game to date was against the Pitt Panthers in a half empty Steelers stadium.
JCH, I know you aren't going to agree with this and I don't blame you being a Clemson fan. And I know it is going to sound like I just don't want to give Clemson credit for a big win. That is fine.
But I just don't put a lot of stock into Clemson's win over UGA. I have never thought that big time programs should play each other in the first game of the season. Every other sport in the country has pre-season games. And yes, I would say the same thing if we had beaten a good team in the first game of the season.
Now having said that, I have watched FSU play and I think they are a really good football team. So if Clemson does beat FSU this weekend, then I will give them all of the respect in the world.
