Because our schedule has been pretty weak we have not had to deal with injuries that the SEC schools have had. We have a pretty good warm up against a very inconsistent NC State team the week before the SC game. So the basic answer is I have no idea. I think being in the Valley during a nationally televised game night is going to be a massive advantage for the Tigers and we do play really well at home.
It will be the third most intimidating environment this year for the Gamecocks. Thus, I don't think it will be a big factor to the Gamecocks.

Arkansas is probably much better than everyone in the ACC except Clemp and FSU. They would probably give both of those acc teams a run for their money.

No smack but SC has a great win over UGA and then it drops off a lot after that. Tenn is probably better than VT though. Vandy is probably average/good ACC quality.
Thanks. Our body of work is clearly more impressive. However, you've dispatched the weak teams the way a good team should dispatch weak teams. Clearly, if all things stay the same, this year's tilt will be very tough for Vegas to handicap.

Except we lost the other two. Hope we can play well on the road at least once. Seems like this game is usually not as much of a home field advantage for some reason.

I was comparing your defense to the UT defense. We were arguing about whether your D is a lot better, or just marginally better than the Vols. No question you D was better last year. Sensebaugh was a very good cover corner. You don't have anyone nearly as good this year.
Clemsons Defense is about as bad as it gets

No matter how you slice it, Clemson's signature win is still Ball State.

It took a 4th quarter comeback for CU to beat an All-barn team that currently sits at 2-7.
Not trying to make excuses but more so, state a fact. That Auburn team got a lot worse as the season has progressed.

has anyone else noticed that clemson's "improvement" on defense has hinged in large part on sending extra people (linebackers and db's) on blitzes. it has worked for them but is dangerous and they aren't disguising those blitzes very well. definitely something we can exploit if we pay attention.

I am about 99.9% sure that the team will hear the "rant" over and over that week.

It's not out of the question that Duke turns out to be the only Clemson win over a bowl bound team. Ball State may not get a bid.

Clemson may not have a signature win, but all we can do is play who is on the schedule. Not really our fault Auburn sucks, VT is down, GT is down, and we gave FSU a good shot but they were the better team that night. Still have you guys on the table though so there is hope.
