Default Clemson fans over-confident.....

Just reading through many Clemson fans fb posts and other related material this morning.....

Gotta admit, most seem strangley over confident versus SC next week.

They just played an unranked NCSU team at home who scored 45 on them.

Personally, I don't get it. If they can't look at their past 11 games and our past 11 games and understand that #1 - You're about to face the best defense you've seen all year, and #2 - We don't allow any school to put up the kind of points you do. #3 - The majority of Boyd's success this year is because of all the time he's had in the backfield. Do you honestly think Clowney, Taylor, Quarels and Jerrideau will allow you that amount of time? LOL!

Anyone else with thoughts and comments on this?

I see it and I just sit back and listen. It's been this way coming into this game 3 years running. Their schedule sets them up as a top 10 offense and they come in confident that our defense is no better than Duke's.

Saturday comes, we win by 20 and all is good. I then go on to give them all hell about it.

The taters over confidence is matched by the insecurities of many Cockytalk posters ... some of these Carolina fans act like we have already lost this game.

Let me also add that datboy's little rant last year will add another layer of intrigue to this year's game.

Clemson fans are extremely overconfident. However, I think all the pressure is on them. They are at home, will be favored, every bowl projection has them winning and going to the bcs, and they've lost 3 in a row. If we beat them in their house for 4 in a row(which could easily become 5 in '13) they wouldn't be able to stand it. I believe all the pressure is on them to beat us and they will come out over-emotional and tight and we hit them in the mouth. Carolina wins 35-21

Default Re: Clemson fans over-confident.....

I think part of their confidence comes from the fact that SC hasn't exactly played stellar as the season has progressed. Let's face it, we are pretty banged up and it has had an impact.

We struggled with a Tenn team that absolutely got taken to the woodshed by Vanderbilt. They also had to go into overtime to beat Troy.

We took care of business against Arkansas, but then Arkansas got absolutely destroyed by Miss State yesterday.

We struggled against Wofford. Not as big of a deal that they got their yards. We all knew that was going to happen. But their defense doesn't play the triple option and we only scored 17 offensive points. Lets be honest, no one on this board expected us to only score 17 offensive points against Wofford.

If I was a Clemson fan, I would be pretty confident as well. I love our team and I know the players bust their ass. But we are not playing right now like we were earlier in the season.

Tenn & Arkansas are good teams that quit at points during the season.

I haven't seen anyone post the fact that if USC wins, Spurrier will have the all-time wins mark here. He wants this win more than anyone. I bet my bottom dollar he is busting his butt looking at game film and will have a game plan that will solid. Let's be honest, we played with a very limited playbook yesterday. We'll see everything plus the kitchen sink thrown at Clemson on Saturday.

Clemson Is gonna boat race us. Ill eat crow otherwise. But they will. We have a quarterback that can't pull the trigger. We will be one dimensional. And our D will get tired.

I thought that last year as well. I am worried about the game. We have too many key pieces that are injured. I think this game is all about our D-line against their O-line. If we play off and don't pressure we will be in big trouble.

I think it's far more important that the oline decides to actually perform. I defended them earlier in the season but they have been regressing over the past two weeks and that needs to stop.

Here is the thing about this year compared to last year. I am just like you in that I was worried last year and everything turn out ok. But I honestly feel like we are about the same as we were last year. I don't see any real improvements.
1. We are again without Marcus and we don't have Brandon.
2. We don't have Alshon.
3. Clowney is a year better, but we don't have Melvin Ingram.
4. Shaw has a year more experience, but to me, he is about the same as he was last year, which is a good QB. I don't have a problem with Connor overall. I am just saying that I don't think he is vastly improved from last year.

So overall, I feel like we have about the same team we had last year except without Alshon.

On the other hand, I think Clemson has improved. I know is the ACC. Yes, I get that. But they played in the ACC last year and played a few closer games and even got beat by NC State the week before our game.

I am not saying they are world beaters, but it does look to me that they have improved and I think we are about the same.
