It's easy to look good against a team that can't match up athlete to athlete. I have bled solid orange for as long as I can remember but if we lose to scar this year I'm giving up my bragging rights. We can't dominate teams that are not up to par and then get smacked around by Florida state and South Carolina every year. I really thought this was our year. I mean convincing wins over LSU and UGA before those teams lost there mainstays on the starting charts. LSU lost what 6 or 8 defensive starters to the draft and UGA unfortunately is loosing its wheels with all these skill position injuries. Every time we face a team that is even close to having the same caliper players for each position we stumble around a little bit. I mean watch the Boston college game. Nc state. Heck Virginia caused us to have 5 unsuccessful drives in a row. I don't need to mention Florida state do I? They shut Boyd down and we for some reason never pulled him. Boyd only got one of those touchdowns. I hated swinney for that 5 out of 10 comment he made after the Florida state game however he is right. We are definitely a good enough team to beat them and its a shame we are in the same devision. A Florida state vs clemson acc championship rematch would be a good seller. But we can't control that. We can only control what's coming up next, which is plenty of prep time for the Thursday showdown with Georgia tech. If we don't concentrate and slow down a little bit on defense it can get away from us. Boston college and Florida state exposed how easy it is to take advantage of a defense that moves laterally a little too quickly for their own good. Lets drag them through the mud, move on to coaching citadel through a lose and then laying a gauntlet down on a few chicken heads. Lets go tigers!
