I thought there would be one or two tweets.  So pleasant to just see the compliments going on and on.  Like everyone else, I want nothing but good outcomes for that guy.  I hope someone from his family gets to read threads like this from time to time.

You saw 88's first two touchdowns of the season last night.  I thought Clemson outplayed Bama, but Bama clearly outcoached Clemson.  They saw a few weaknesses and called special plays that exploited those weaknesses in very critical moments.  Four of those plays directly led to touchdowns.

Percentages literally correct for sample size.  If you have a 90% winning percentage then you're expected to win 90 out of 100 games, regardless of how many games that % calculation is based upon.  The removal of ties in the "modern era" does somewhat spoil the comparison though.  This senior class has been to OT a number of times, all of which would drop the winning % of teams in the non-OT era.

+1.  I don't have the explicit data, but if you look at the "last 3 years" records of Power 5 coaches, I would bet Strong is on a path that very few survive.  And Herman most certainly wants the Texas job and is using that trajectory to plan his own future.  To argue otherwise is simply ignoring reality.

I personally believe that the winner of the B1G, ACC, and B12 are all locks.  If UNC wins, we'll have the same record.  Our SOS is not that much better than theirs and they will have just knocked off the #1 team in the nation, hard not to agree with that as an automatic playoff qualifier.  If OSU were 12-1 and had just beat an undefeated #1 ranked team in the B1G championship game, we'd all be livid to be left out.

If Florida wins, we may sneak in.  If Florida wins and Stanford loses, we're a lock.

Yeah, I texted my father, "the only way we get into the redzone is if we make it to OT."  There was no way we were driving more than 30 yards on that team yesterday.  Sadly, we're just not very good on offense.  Our defense just looked ok, but only 8 power five defenses gave up fewer points yesterday.

+1.

We've been playing scared all year.  The only exceptions being JT in the red zone against PSU and the Rutgers game.  Hopefully this lose is the end of that and we come out hungry and aggressive from here on out.

Comment 22 Nov 2015

Agreed. I'm not so sure that it's about getting a chance to show that we're a great team as it is about realizing that we simply aren't one of the four best teams this year.  This is a good team and it's been a fun run, but this simply is not the year.  We can't pass the ball.  Time to go beat Michigan and get to a good bowl game.

Doesn't the big10 also try to ensure that the top teams play in November?
