Default Clemson Fans Lobbying For Orange Bowl

Clemson may be closing in on Alabama with the most delusional fan base.

It's all over twitter, their fans are lobbying the Orange Bowl people to invite them because they would be "Orange Loud and Orange Proud" to come to the Orange Bowl.

Why would you ask for another Bama beat down? After losing like they did Saban and Co. will be ready to pound any team they face during Bowl Season.

I don't want to lump all Clemson fans into one category, but on Facebook the Clemson fans that were commenting on the Post and Courier story were all a bit crazy.

They didn't travel all that well down there the last time they went and that was coming off of an ACC Championship game victory. Don't think they will take as many this year as they did last year.

Clemson going to the Orange Bowl would just further solidify how much of a farce the BCS is. They are garbage.

The Clemson AD just basically tweeted what I said. The concern that the Orange Bowl has with Clemson is ticket sales.

The BCS was set up to make sure #1 & #2 play. After that it's BS. That being said, I agree that there is no way Clemson should get a BCS bowl when there are much better teams to choose from.

Just saw on Sportcenter the BCS Top 10. If you matched those 10 teams up it would be amazing and phenomenal and all the ratings. Instead, you're getting Clemson, who lost to two teams ahead of them, NIU and UCF who will get destroyed by whoever they play, etc.

The playoff should be an "Elite 8". The problem w/ limiting it to 4 is that you're going to have a logjam of 1-2 loss teams between 3-9 and all could potentially be deserving.

yep. But I disagree about UCF. They may get beat but I don't know if they would get destroyed. Northern Ill., yeah we saw what they were last year. And Clemson shouldn't even be in the conversation at 13 or whatever they are.

Completely agree about UCF.

I mean, they had Louisville as being the giant slayer this season, and UCF beat them. They have 1 loss and that's to the current #8 team in the nation. So how do you justify Louisville as a great team, but not UCF?

The part I don't get is, why are there such things as "BCS Conferences" and "Non-BCS Conferences" if it's possible for a team that's in a "Non-BCS Conference" to still be ranked in the BCS poll? If you're not in that conference then it's with the understanding that your conference isn't that tough. Therefore, DON'T EVEN RANK THEM!!!!!!!!!! Boise State should have never been in any BCS Bowl game ... whether they won or were a great team or whatever. They play(ed) in a NON-BCS CONFERENCE against NON-BCS TEAMS. Northern Illionis might be a good team, but they shouldn't be in the same talks, because they're not a BCS Conference team.

Clemson is not a BCS team, even though they will get a bowl they don't deserve. Their only statement win is against an 8-4 UGA squad and they face planted in their last two games against ranked opponents. Their record looks pretty, but when you look at who they beat....well, you get the picture.

I hope they get a BCS bid against Alabama. They'll get rocked. That LSU team they played last year doesn't compare to an 11-1 Bama coming off a loss with a month to prepare.

After that last Clemson Orange Bowl I would think the Orange Bowl Committee would lobby Clemson to change to all purple.

No but seriously. I have a coworker who is Clemson season ticket holder and she's gotten 4 emails just today begging for them to tweet in or email the Orange Bowl using the hashtag #ClemsonOrange

She's getting annoyed at the desperation because she doesn't want a Bama matchup, haha.
