    Clemson is overrated. Barely beat an average Texas A&M last week. Plus, the GSU Eagles have @OldDevilDAWG on their side!

    If they are 1 loss ACC conference champions again this year, are they a "unquestioned" shoe in for the playoffs like last year ???

    OSU got hosed last year getting left out of the playoffs.

    They should have gotten Clem's spot.

    Clemson probably is due to their reputation. Rest of the ACC probably no. Terrible this year.

    Just keeping with the theme of the year that Bama has to look head and shoulders above everyone else after last year, so there's no confusion about who the best team is..........

    Because the NCAA and the media haven't figured out that the college football world should not be focused around the state of Alabama and its population of 4,863,300 people. They bet on the wrong f***ing horse.

    Were they not held scoreless in the 1st?

    Was the score not only 14-0 against Georgia southern with a minute left in the 1st half

    How is this team ranked #2 when they haven’t looked it at all this season?

    Wanna seem how a team performs when they are true top 5?

    Look at Georgia’s game

    I’m sick of these entitled fan bases thinking they are above reproach.

    2 turnovers and missed FG in first quarter will do that

    Losing to Syracuse should have Dq'ed them or at the very least gave people a reason to doubt their validity a bit.

    But no, they were etched in stone by simply winning the ACC and being a 1 loss like the others.

    But ignore OSU being blown out by an average team.


    Cool. Got it. Haven’t see this argument before

    I was joking about OSU but I was serious about no one questioning the 1 loss Clemson Tigers.

    Clemson should have been in last year. I do think their seed (#1) wasn't correct based on what they did on the field. I thought going in it should have been.

    1. OU
    2. UGA
    3. Clemson
    4. Bama

    UGA and Bama lost to a better team (one clemson did beat). But UGA beat Auburn at a neutral site while Clemson beat them in Clemson by a closer margin without Auburn's best player being on the field. While the Iowa State loss wasn't GREAT for OU... it was only by a TD.

    But that was last season. Matters little now.

    How dare Clemson only win by 31. They should just stop football altogether.

    We dont all have the luxury of a BIG schedule...

    Playing 2 and 3 deep players from the start.
    Playing a true freshman qb half the drives.
    Real game exp for guys so we dont fall off the map next year. It's how Dabo has kept reloading.

    Worse case, we are overrated and get to blast our whipping boy from the BIG before bowing out to Bama.

    Funny story...

    In 2011, eventual National Champion Alabama beat then FCS GSU 45-21, lead by 10 at the half, 24-14. Alabama didn’t belong in the title game. Alabama’s soft serve defense allowed over 300 yards rushing. Clemson held GSU to 140 TOTAL yards. Bama gained just north of 400 yards in that game, Clemson gained nearly 600.

    In 2015, 10-3 UGA beat GSU 23-17 in OT.

    In 2014, GSU lost to GT and NC State by a combined 5 points.

    My point is two fold. 1) GSU would likely curb stomp Ohio State by 31. 2) Alabama fans talking about performances against GSU should stfu and look at their own history vs GSU before spouting off. Really? 21 points to a then FCS team during a Championship year? I would embarrassed to hang the banner.

    We can all sit here and talk about the past yet we cannot change it and we can all sit here and speculate the future but can't be certain of it . The only thing I can be certain of is at this present moment in time , Clemson Tigers are 3-0 ....fact

    Sounds harsh, but that guy had it coming.

    Have you looked at the Pac OOC Cupcake Schedule today? Not one, not two, not three but FOUR Undefeated (2-0) Pac Teams play FCS Opponents today. That would be Stanford (2-0) vs. UC-Davis (FCS), Cal (2-0) vs. Idaho State (FCS), Colorado (2-0) vs. New Hampshire (FCS) and Wash. State (2-0) vs. Eastern Washington (FCS). At least USC is playing a real team @ Texas today.
