We can’t tackle to save our life.  Hope they don’t go for 2 and make it if they score.

We totally just escaped.  UNC beat our butt today and we helped them.  Any win is a good win but jeez.  Maybe we need this going forward.

Well we tried to give that one away.  I’ll take the win any way we can get it.  Our coaches have some work to do.

That game had the same feel as the 2018 TA&M game.  Hopefully we use it as inspiration.

I wanted to go wire to wire #1 but after that, we might just drop.  Might also add to that motivation.  I’m ok with it.

I generally just watch the game, then comment. Congrats to Clemson for escaping with a win vs UNC. That sounds a lot like the 2015 ACCCG. Anyway, I was very doubtful UNC would have any chance, but the coaches put in a good game plan, and the players executed around 85% of it. UNC has come out of the toughest stretch of it’s schedule 2-3, and put a serious scare into the the #1 team in college football. I now look for them to win 7-8 games in MB’s first season. Right on track for the ACCCG in year 2-3, and the ACC Championship by year 4-5. Mark it down.

It would be nice to stay #1 as I feel we’ve been shorted in that category in the past but it really doesn’t matter besides the chance to say “weeks at #1”

Your guys did good and they are heading in the right direction.  It’s a shame you weren’t 3-1 or 4-0 going into the game.  I bet you have good odds at reaching the ACCCG next year.

UNC outplayed us. Thankfully we have some great players that were able to make a couple of plays to win it. We seem to have one of these every year. I hope this was the last one. Great game by UNC, they wanted it and played tough.

I was there and it was awesome. Not down at all…

My only response to the comments made here was that some of the earlier posts sound like Lil Carolina fans where it is all your fault and has nothing to do with the other team. Newsflash, the guys in Carolina Blue are on scholarship too and alot of whom were heavily recruited by Clemson. Clemson just had more of them today to outlast at the end.

Missed holding calls? There were some much more important missed Offensive and Defensive Pass Interference calls. If you are the defending national champs and you are whining about the refs…well…Ill just say holding had nothing to do with those plays.

I was unable to watch the game because I was camping in a place with no cell service..When I finally was able to see the score I had a WTF moment.

After watching the game I have nothing but respect for Mack Brown and the effort UNC put out.  Clemson played bad because UNC made them play bad.  UNC was hungry, the fans were in the game and they have enough talent to beat a lot of teams.

The good thing is UNC expose a lot of problems in the offense that I’m hoping will give our coaches the ability to correct.

One thing that I think is hurt Lawrence is his not getting enough reps.  He only threw 9 passes last week against Charlotte and was pulled at the first part of the 2nd qtr..Tua.

Good game.
