That's a dumb fucking take.
Maybe I'm biased but I take issue with the "we got dominated" narrative everyone is running with about that game. If we punch it in on that late meaningless drive and it's 24-13 is it a close game?
They outgained us by 73 yards for crying out loud. Don't get me wrong, the better team won, but they didn't "dominate" us. They got some great breaks on tipped ints that made that win a lot more comfortable.
Yea, I know it is always "one break here, one break there, then this" but if you remove the pick 6 and take even a FG on that final drive then the score is 17-9. Not exactly what I would consider domination.
Don't get me wrong, I think the better team won and I don't think we played well at all, but to jump off the ledge and say we were garbage and not a top team/program because of losing to Bama in their backyard is a bit disingenuous.
Let them talk. It’s what this team needs. Just over a week ago, the same guys were saying the bama dynasty is over and clemson’s Beginning.
We need a chip on the shoulder this spring.
Listening to podcasts where sports writers have more relaxed, candid conversations really reveals just how little they know about football.
In general, these folks aren't experts, they're primarily story tellers who happen to have chosen football to write about.
ACC Champ is a damn fine accomplishment no doubt. If that is our ceiling without the world's greatest college dual theat QB then that is who we are as well.
Yes. I hope they scream that shit everywhere.
Maisel is sharp as fuck, y’all. Guy really knows his shit.
How do you do about having your safety looked off in cover tow for the winning touchdown?
#1 in the country and in the playoff but fuck that right?
With Bryant at qb and after losing some of the best players we’ve had in a long time on offense. I guess that’s ok
The more shit they talk the better we play.
Let Bama and Tua get an offseason off rat poison and not us.
Calling this season unacceptable is some Walmart fan level logic
He's right. Clemson just can't make the playoff without deshaun Watson at QB.
We weren't on Alabama's level, but we won the ACC and made the playoff. It's a stupid comment. Nobody is saying Ohio State has no future after we stomped them much worse than Alabama did us.
Have to throw Oklahoma in there as well.
Honestly it's like Dabo planted that quote, love it.
We should also note that Clemson was very lucky to sign the top QB. That will probably never happen again.
On that note, I guess Hunter Johnson was rated higher last year than Tua?
Johnson was 30th
Tua was 32nd
Yeah, Johnson was the #1 guy last year. Above Tua, above Jake Fromm.
That is not what I said, so calm down. I said that being the ACC Champ is a great accomplishment and if that is our ceiling without having the worlds greatest dual threat QB then that is who we are.
Being the ACC Champ will put us in the playoff almost every time. With damn few exceptions.
Still will never understand all the resistance to wanting to improve upon our areas of weakness. Why all of the push back against that? It is no damn crime to admit we are not currently absolutely perfect in every aspect of every positional group in football.
Those are two separate arguments. Right now the argument is showing what a dumbfuck Ivan Maisel is. Clemson can and will improve at the QB position. Maisel can and will continue to be uninformed.
I was more talking about improving the offensive line, but you are correct. I do expect Kelly Bryant will improve in the off season with another year of coaching. All of the QBs will improve.
OL should improve also with the addition of Carman and with Hyatt staying for another year.
What is Mainsel’s argument that we are not going to be the next Bama and win 5 times in a decade?
There will probably never be another team like Bama.
That we are going to fall off a cliff like FSU?
Because we have already accomplished more without Watson than FSU has by just getting to the playoffs.
That we can never win it again?
It is going to be tough in Saban’s prime, but all this team was missing was a better QB and to think we have no chance at duplicating that seems like a bad argument especially since we just landed Lawrence.
It's funny to me that Bama's sustained success has led a national sports writer to imply that making the CFP three years in a row is somehow substandard.
Two of the three years we were #1 overall too. Goddamn Dabo sucks.
But then again he mixes pappy's with Pepsi, so maybe he is onto something
Anyone got the Hickey DB recruiting update?? Thanks in advance...
The 3-star Under Armour All-American cornerback informed me this morning that he's not visiting Clemson this weekend.
He clarified that he won't be visiting Clemson at all. He told me his spot had been filled.
In checking up on this with a source, Clemson's first priority right now is a safety.
Can we get a name with that update?
Horrible rapper name
Is any of this significant? I'm stupid.
