Dabo loves this kind of stuff.  It is just the type of spark Clemson uses every year to stick to the non-conference P5 teams we play.  Clemson plays well with that chip on their shoulder when they feel disrespected.

A lot of people ate crow last year for underestimating Clemson and that won’t change this year unless the ACC has some more stallions come out. 

I hope we beat Texas A&M worse than we did Alabama to set up the rest of the season.

Dabo always has a response ready.

The ACC always has a lot of pretty good teams. With FSU and Louisville being down recently, it has hurt the imagine because we haven’t had another top team. There are a lot of teams that could potentially get to that level.

I give the SEC West credit for being a tough division. The East hasn’t been so strong in recent years.

We beat not one but two undefeated teams to end the season, which may be a first.  ND a team that plays teams all over the country and Bama fresh off a record setting path of destruction through the mighty SEC.  Yea both of them were demolished by Clemson.  Do they want us to add some pro teams to the schedule?

Clemson ended last year with an SOS of #2.

They do have a weak schedule. The ACC stinks right now. The 1/3 of the schedule that they control, however, is of good quality. Clemson shouldn’t apologize for anything.

I used this analogy. The best pizza place in the world could be located in, say, Omaha. Just because there are more good pizza places in New York and Chicago and Rome, it doesn’t mean the No. 1 pizza place has to come from one of those places.

I get what you are saying,and that best pizza in Omaha probably would have to defend how good it is just because it’s in that location and have to constantly hear NY and Chicago homers heal all of the time how better they are….until a side-by-side taste test throwdown occurs.

Those are some good points. I like the analogy.
