This will be the first time is a while that we no longer have to worry about cut blocking everydown.  I’m glad to see GT move back to more traditional offenses.

Clemson is a 35 point favorite against GT.  I’m confident we will win, but I would be surprised if Dabo run up the score unless this occurs in a first half route.  I just hope everyone on both teams stays healthy and our backups get a lot of playing time.

I’m just hoping to be able to access the game on my television. Not looking great right now.

Here’s a like to streaming services that’s going to offer it.  You could sign up for the free trial and cancel it after the game:

GT will be a “wreck” for a couple of years until they get some players. The only good thing going for them in the 1st game is there is no tape to watch and prepare for the things they do on offense. Clemson will still beat them badly.

It’s gonna be ugly.  Our backups will play a lot.  Our backups will likely outscore GT.  I’m glad that GT made a change though because I thought they were underachieving.

GT has had some highly rated players transfer into them this offseason including recently a ND guy. Maybe the defense can hold their ground for a little while.

They were 43 yards allowed last year so they needed a little boost.  For some reason I thought they were much lower than that.

Really? You are posting and writing on the internet but you don’t have access to Direct TV, Hulu, or a PlayStation? Spectrum just announced it is carrying it this week so most of the Carolinas are good for those who still have cable. (Why they have that I don’t understand) I suspect more will follow in the next few days. Disney tends to win these type negotiations. Especially when the ACC network is packaged with ESPN and ABC.

A lot of the cable companies didn’t sign up for the SeC network until the day it launched but I get the typical need to claim how it isn’t going well for the ACC…so I’d say the ACC is actually ahead of them however with still a week to go.
