As much as I hate Clemson, they have recruited well enough to remain a top team in the ACC due to their schedule. Their cupboard isn't bare or at least not as bare as the majority of the ACC.

I will disagree from the standpoint of actual production. In that sense, their cupboard is bare. They have highly rated players, but they are losing a LOT in this cycle without really having anyone behind them that has produced:

QB - Boyd
RB - McDowell
2 WR's - Watkins and Bryant
DE - Beasley

Throw on top of that the coaching carousel has just started and they may yet lose a coordinator.

The cupboard will be bare as far as experience goes. Talent-wise, they should be close to on par w/ what they're losing.

Now if Morris bolts for a HC job that's a different story.

Those are some elite players...that will be a huge loss. I do not see them having a team like 2013 for a while. Watkins is special.

That's true. Outside of the UGA game, they get 6 weeks to get used to the system before having to play a legitimate team. Then they get another 6 weeks of prep before playing Carolina. The biggest concern for Clemson is losing Morris and having an on staff coach try to run his offense but without the play calling skill.

So long as he isn't playing Carolina. I think he will be underwhelming in the NFL. That's not because he is a Clemson player but because I think his character and motivation is questionable and once he gets the money will he still play well. Also I don't think he is a great pure WR and his route running will need work. It really depends on what system he is out into.

Breeland is going pro, plus there's the possibility of Crawford and Anthony leaving as well. Shuey is gone, and I think two or three OL are gone as well. They're really starting to lose a lot.

Where did you get this information? I'm not saying you're wrong, just trying to find out which players are definitely leaving.

Alright I guess being one of only 3 true freshmen to ever make the AP first team all america teams means nothing. The others are Herschel and Peterson. He had one incident other than that he did nothing else to get into trouble. He is hands down going to be the first wr taken and Rece Davis even said Watkins is arguably the top prospect in the draft skill wise. They said with his Orange Bowl performance he may have solidified himself as a top 5 pick. Over 200 yds receiving and 2 tds in the OB is crazy. He'll be fine. Had he went to SC im sure yall would be singing his praises as he would have been the #1 receiver the day he stepped on campus there. Just give credit where it is due no matter who he plays for. I have no problem saying Clowney is one of the best DE's to come out probably since Peppers. Dont let the rivalry cloud your judgement like that.

(lets not even talk motivation. What about Clowney skipping summer practices and the Kentucky game because he was "injured"? All Spurrier had to say was maybe he couldnt play in the opener if he kept missing practice and abra kadabra he was healed and ready to go)

Bye bye tater offense. On defense, Anthony's strongly considering bolting too along with Crawford.
