There is no reason to hope for a win.  The only thing I can hold out hope for is I remember a time in football when Clemson had a 27-0 win streak against UVA.  They finally broke that streak so it can happen.

A win over UNC at Chapel Hill buys Brownell 5 more years…LOL

When I left the house it was 30 to like 10.  Looks like Clemson closed the gap some.

Couldn’t close out the deal I see, color me surprised.  0-59 now?  This is the one thing in Clemson sports that makes me feel like a coot.  It’s just a giant steaming pile of losing.  It’s the closest I can relate to USCjr and the coots.

It’s a long season. Clemson should be fine. UNC should be ok, too. 59-0 is a cool streak, and I’m glad it’s still going. Nothing against Clemson.. it could be vs. anyone, but the number is astounding.

Bump, let the downfall start.  So predictable.

Dude, you are playing UVA. There is a reason they are #2. Y’all are like the most fair weather fans ever for basketball.

Fair weather would indicate I was a fan to begin with at some point…

Clemson is in big trouble without Grantham. We don’t have enough depth to sustain a loss like that. That could make for a disappointing second half of the season.

I am not ready to throw in the towel.  Clemson played great in the first half and just flat got cold in the second half.  UVa only scored 61 points and much of hat was due to poor shooting.

I wasn’t expecting a win and UVa nor am I against UNC or Duke…The rest of the season is very manageable.

I think 24-6 is very possible and this will allow the team to adjust to the personnel change.

This is Brownell’s defining moment IMO.

I didn’t expect at win against UVA either and agree on the others. I hope you’re right on the rest of the season, but I worry with Grantham out.

And stormed the court! Lol. Tar Heels are reeling right now. The fact they took it to the wire without Pinson and Felton and May with an off night means they can turn it around.

Clemson was missing Grantham.  Felton is a bench player that isn’t much of a contributor.

Meh, at Clemson though.  Was a bit to far rushing the court, this one wasn’t a streak breaker or a huge win or anything IMO.
