For Clemson, I want see how we handle this success.  An 18 Year old Clemson fan probably doesn’t remember how bad things can get.  I hope we can handle a time when we get beat and deal with it.  FSU folks didn’t handle it well and I don’t want that to occur in Tiger Town.

When I read the Clemson fans post, I definitely am see less humility than before. We are a very fortunate fan base to have a clean program they is currently one of the envies of the nation.

Because I like to think, I like to read. I’m into freedom of speech, the freedom of choice. I’m the kind of guy who likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder - “Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of BBQ ribs with the side order of gravy fries?” I want high cholesterol.

We have the talent to be a playoff team again and should be. I think you may be right about seeing how they handle success. Not only did we lose some great players, but we lost a lot of leadership. I hope people step up and keep them focused.

Hard for me to imagine losing more than 2 games .ext year. 

I think clemson and bama play for the hardware again.  tOSU and maybe OU compete.  Not sure on uga but they were way overrated last year.

I saw that Shaq Smith entered the transfer portal. He was supposed to contribute this year. I’m sorry to see that happen.

Losing 2 regular season would be disappointing.  Losing 1 would but we have to be at least a little realistic.  Syracuse fans are hyped up, even though I think their team takes a step back.  If they don’t knock out our QB for the 3rd straight year we should handle it fine.  Even with a 7:30pm kick.  What really scares me is an unfamiliar GT team, early, on a Thursday.  We’ve counted on easily bottling up the option for years now, can’t rely on that now.  At least its at home.  Everyone else on the schedule is kind of meh apart from maybe A&M.

If you’re happy with good enough, then good enough is what you’ll be. Greatness requires the expectation of excellence.
