I meant to do some indepth research last night, but just didn’t. But I was talking to Granite yesterday and the subject was Clemson.
Yes, Tajh Boyd is good.
Yes, it is a night game in a hostile environment.
Yes, the Tigers went 11-2 and tore throught their ACC schedule like a hot kinfe through butter.
Yes, the Dawgs have shown a propensity to wet the bed in big games.
But there is a big difference between 11-2 and 10-3. Clemson is getting a lot of attention becuase they beat a LSU team. Well, I had a little bit of, um, interest in that game, and I watched it from start to finish. LSU and Les Miles gave that game to Clemson. Now, it is not taking anything away from the Country Gentlemen because they still managed to win. But LSU lost the Peach Bowl as much as Clemson won it.
And don’t forget on the last game of the regular season, Clemson was edged out by a South Carolina team that was down their starting running back and quarterback.
I will dig into my Phil Steele to get a closer look at Clemson, but I am starting to wonder. Should I be worried about the Clemson game?
Now, I don’t need to do any research to tell you the South Carolina scares the bejesus out of me.
