Default I know Clemson's schedule is talked about a lot...but

When looking at Clemson's schedule in anticipation of this week's game...I was in shock. They've beaten:

3-8 Auburn
Furman
Ball State 8-3(Arguably their best win)
5-6 Virginia Tech
2-9 Boston College(gave up 31)
5-6 Wake Forest
6-5 Duke
4-7 Maryland
6-5 NC State
6-5 Georgia Tech


OH MY GOODNESS!!! I have NEVER seen a weaker line of wins in my life from a team. Boise State got hell for their schedule, but this makes their schedule look strong. We really don't know what to expect from this team, they did score 37 vs Florida State, but still lost by double digits. I just cannot believe how freaking easy that schedule is...their best win is who, NC State? The same State that got demolished by a winless SEC team? Or is it BALL STATE? Wow.

Unfair isn't it? I'm not trying to be salty, and I give props where they are due so if they beat us Saturday, i'll be the first to congratulate Clemson, but that schedule.....yikes

They've beaten ONE team with more than 6 wins...

Wow. I don't know what to say. Exhibit A of how easy their schedule is and how much ACC football sucks.

Vandy-7 wins=1; ECU-6 wins=2; Georgia-11 wins=3; and Wofford-8 wins=4.....


So we have won 4 games against 6+ win opponents...3 bowl eligible....1 on the cusp of bowl eligibility and 1 FCS participant...always a firm believer that you only get better by playing QUALITY opponents.....now all the team has to do is go out and play like they are capable of...

Nobody wants to admit it, but clemson is still a very good team. No, they won't score 60 like they do against ACC teams, but don't be surprised if they put 30 on the board. I don't think our offense can score more than 30.

I think Clemson is a good team and I agree that they will put points on the board, but I am not following you on SC not being able score more than 30.

We scored 38 and 38 in our last two games against teams that were similar to Clemson and those games were only two weeks ago.

You have to also take into account that Clemson actually "helps" teams score more points by how quickly they run their offense. Clemson is either going to score, punt, or turn it over very quickly. That leads to more scoring opportunities for the other team.

This I have never understood, our schedule is a joke but what do y'all want us to do about it. We can't control how weak the rest of our conference is, we outplay them like we are supposed to do. If you want us to play a tougher schedule then get us an SEC invite, because that is the only way we will get a tougher SOS unless the rest of the conference starts stepping it up.

Oh I don't disagree, that is what I am really looking forward to come this Saturday. To see how well our O really is against one of the top D's in College Football right now.

What makes you think you will have more success against us than last year? I am just curious. I have asked this to several Tigger friends and they haven't answered the question other than to say they are better this year. I need a little more than that.

No way Clemson scores 30 on us. No way in hell. We beat them by 17-21 points, they score maybe 21

We haven't really beat a whole lot of great teams either. Vandy and UGA are quality wins, other than that.... We also haven't played worth a damn on the road all season.
