If the D improves some, it will won't hurt, because the O may be less flashy (but hopefully more consistent).

Come on man, there is no way you think Clemson's offense will be anywhere near where they are this year? They are getting douched at all the skill positions which are so important to Clemson. Clemson might lose 4 games next year.

He needs to talk to Tajh about what coming back can do to you. Clemson fans and Dabo did $omething to get him to come back.

I will guess 3 losses, with the wins being closer. Louisville game will be interesting. Morris (if he stays) will have his recruits on O, so we will see if he is worth the $. But receivers like Hopkins last year and Watkins this year don't happen every year.

The receiver to watch out for this coming year is Charone Peake. #1 receiver in the country out of hs according to ESPN. Tore his acl earlier this year so he didnt play much. He should be the featured receiver. 6'3 and 4.4 speed. He is a junior with the medical redshirt he got I believe

That is some refreshing honesty from a Clemson fan.

What...AN...IDIOT!!!

He had the chance to cash in and make a nice payday, get a three year contract, and then earn him an even nicer payday.

What does Vic Beasley gain by coming back to Clemson? Nothing.

He may be a clemson player, but he is also a young man that had the chance to make life-changing money...and that snake-oil salesman Dabo may have just cost him millions.

I truly hope Vic Beasley stays healthy next season...because if he gets hurt and drops in the draft (or goes undrafted, or God forbid can never play again) it is on Dabo.

Dabo is all about Dabo.
I truly think he doesn't care if these kids lose out on money...as long as he keeps raking in his millions off their backs.

Spurrier has the right mindset...if you can cash in, go do it, and come back and finish your degree later.

I do okay $ wise (not a millionaire) and I would give anything to have one more year of undergrad back.. nothing like it!

When you are in college you are too broke to do anything and when you are out of college and have money, you have no time to do anything. Something isn't cool about that.

A buddy from college has a roommate that works in the Athletic Dept at Clemson and apparently Beasley is a different kind of guy as I have already mentioned. He isn't about making a big splash or basking in the lime light and he either just enjoys college or the coeds or both. He works out at a crappy Golds Gym over a multimillion dollar athletic facility when he can for crying out loud.

Yes.
College was nice..next to no responsibility and lots of down time. Those nights were you could go out Wednesday and your only worry was the test you forgot to study for the next day. Plus, all the beautiful women.
NO one is denying that.

I actually wanted Vic to leave so he could cash in and make a good life for him and his family...this was his year to cash in...

The thing everyone on this site is wondering is why come back? Because he likes college? i'm sorry, that is a bull sh it excuse for Dabo guilt tripped him. Pure and simple.

Beasley gains nothing by coming back and is only risking injury.
He is always going to be undersized for a DE, his future is at LB, but he won't play LB at clemson...next year will be a year where he could've been learning how to play LB in the NFL...instead, he will be padding his stats against subpar ACC teams like he did this year.

I hope he stays healthy and doesn't fall next year, I truly do.
But to me, it is just too big a risk.

You guys crack me up. I bet a few weeks ago you same people were clowning on the kid about being delusional for thinking he could get drafted.

Every decision ever made by any one in any way associated with Clemson was the worst decision ever made, yeah?

Lol at you for thinking it was a good decision on him to potentially pass up 1st round money. There is no way he has as good of a season as he did this past season, but hey it's not my money.
