    If we hired their OC I think they’d know how to prepare :p

    In spite of all the claims to the contrary, Johnson did NOT run a spread option. In fact, many wished he would go to a true spread option, thinking it would open up the passing game more, which it probably would have with a QB who could throw. And it the option didn't produce mediocre results, when we had the number one rushing team in the country. The mediocre results came from not being able to pass consistently when we needed to, and a poor (but improving IMO) defense, plus the early-in-the-season ST play.

    Well, okay then. Let's just call the clowns up and forfeit right now. Or make it a scrimmage. As long as they promise not to hurt our poor boys. Most everybody is aware of Clemson's strength, and there will be little dropoff next season. And we have a new coach and maybe a new offense. And probably, most probably, an entirely new coaching staff. (It is a hard bed coaches make.) But when that ball is teed up the score is zip. Let's play to see what the final will be. Whoever the coach, whatever the system, whoever the QB, my money is on them competing. If the players don't quit what right does a fan have to quit?

    We actually were moving the ball fairly well in 2017 until Kirvonte got hurt and it started pouring at death valley.

    Well that may be true, but he would also know what gives them trouble.

    So they only know half his offensive mindset?

    Started 2017 0-1 after the Kickoff game with Tennessee. Will start 2019 0-1 after the game with Clemson. New coach, new systems. Hope 2019 isn’t a repeat (or worse) of 2017...

    I would love to see the permanent cross rival thing go away......put them in the rotation like everybody else......make it far fairer across the board for everyone.

    Elliott would be a very strong hire for TStan to fill the head coaching vacancy

    I think 2019 could be a rebuilding season where they win 4-5 games

    Doubt Elliot has anything to do with it. This matchup for the opening game on ACCN has been rumored since well before CPJ announced his decision.

    You guys forget that Clemson was pretty much a guaranteed loss with Coach Johnson as well. They’ve been in the playoffs every year since 2015, why would we expect to beat them?

    Oh well thank god we were able to move the ball! That surely meant we would have won if not for injuries and rain. You know... the same things that impact all teams.

    Didn't say we would have won. I just said that we were actually moving the ball until ... At any rate, though rain impacts all teams, it sure seemed to impact us more last year than it ever has before. It looked like they were afraid of the rain.
