I have to say, I don't feel great about the matchup this year. Just glad that we have them at home. We have a good enough offense to win in a shootout, but shootouts have been Clemson's specialty as of late. Unless we become a better 4th quarter team, we're not going to be a lock to beat anyone.

And I've always said when they join the SEC/Big 12/PAC 12/or Big 10 they would lose more games. When you go against high school teams week in and week out except 3 times a year (UGA/FSU/USC) then you will look a lot better than you really are. Remember the Stats Boise St was putting up when KM was the QB?

Beasly has MOST of those. He's leading the nation in Sacks right now. He won't have as much success against us. He's a 100% speed rusher.

It'll be a good game, but I still think we're a hair better and it's at home.

SC is really going up a Murderer's Row this year. Clemson will face 1, maybe two more ranked teams before SC. SC will face 1, maybe 0 more ranked teams before CU.

this thread is giving CU credit. Don't be a dick. Regardless of their NUMBER ranking... You still gotta take it at face value. They haven't faced an above average offense that they have been able to contain.

We play at Mizzou who just cracked the top 25, Florida, and Clemson, all of whom are CURRENTLY ranked many things can change from now til then..Mizzou has to be the surprise of the conference though (5-0) im anticipating to see what they do on the road against a banged up Georgia team this weekend

My post wasn't in response to yours so I dunno why you're even responding to me.

And your point is true, but only because of the schedule. Look at the top 25 offenses statistically right now. None of them have been limited by a good defense. You know why? Because if they had been contained, even in just one game, then they wouldn't be a top 25 offense statistically after 5 games. Therefore, at this point of the season, it is nearly impossible for a team to stop a top-25 offense. Obviously, this will change as the season progresses, but he point remains right now.

Regardless, neither SC or CU have played a top-50 offense other than UGA. The difference is that Clemson's defense is shutting down average and below-average offenses.

However, with regard to the UGA/CU game. While CU gave up alot of yards to Gurley, and a garbage TD at the end of the game to make it look closer than it actually was, Murray was harassed all game long and sacked multiple times. Clemson's D-line is legit and is one of the best in the nation (with zero seniors).

That's the problem with College It's tough to calibur how tough teams are until the last week of the season. The country views the ACC as a weak conference, and they view the SEC as the toughest conference. So Even with 1 less top 25 team USC is facing more higher ranked teams Averaged than Clemson. The only way to solve the problem of who you think will win is to just play the game.

Look up NCAA strength of schedule before you come on a this message board stirring up trouble and saying your schedule is harder.

SOS is only based off of who you have played thusfar. Clemson has the tougher remaining schedule, which I believe is what my post said. That is inarguable.

And regardless, this thread is about opponent offense vs your team's defense. Therefore you only should look at those comparisons. (e.g. UF is a top-20 team, but one of the worst offensive teams in the nation. Therefore you cannot say that stopping their offense is like stopping a top-20 team.)

Why do you keep responding to my responses to other people? My point was that SOS with regards to this thread should only be about other team's offenses. Not their overall SOS. Because how good a team is overall has very little effect on how your defense performs against them. And like I said before, you cannot really just ignore Clemson's defensive numbers because they have played very similar level of offenses to SC but have performed much better.

And like I said earlier, no one has limited a top 25 offense this year, because if they had, that offense wouldn't be in the top 25. A bit of a catch-22.

You and I both know that SOS is a fluid statistic. Therefore, I don't think that subjective rankings made 6 weeks before the season started is a very accurate representation of current (and future) SOS rankings.
