I agree with this and thats why i said that it is only an oppurtunity. Not a certainty. I was at that Penn State loss as well. This one felt different. The Penn State game I believed we should have won and we almost got away with our ugly style of play that night.

The game last night we were exposed and dominated. It felt different. 

Last night's game felt more like Virginia Tech in '15. The team that would rise from the ashes from that loss was one that went on to be one of the tightest-knit groups we've had in decades. That team went on and dominated Michigan, Wisconsin, Alabama then Oregon.

This is a good post and topic.

While last night was excruciating to watch from my seat in C deck I almost felt relieved as the outcome became more certain.

Im tired of watching and rooting for a football team that plays afraid and not-to-lose football. 

Now. Maybe. Just maybe we can stop the timidness, indecision and loosen up and play some fun, action packed play-making football. 

As I walked out of the stadium last night I overheard several conversations and even spoke to a few other disheartened fans. I over-heard one fan say "hopefully the opportunity of this failure isn't wasted" and i thought about it the rest of the evening. This game, loss, momentary failure presents this team with some opportunity. It is a chance to reset, look back and in a way start over with some emotion, frustration and some adversity. Look out because that "angry" football team that we all love and admire may be nearer now than it has been in over a YEAR.

Saad was 74th in the league last year in points. Panarin was 11th. Lose a little bit of experience and defense, but a lot say Panarins best play hasn't even arrived yet. This is a win for the CBJ straight up. Kid is an offensive juggernaut.

I agree that with more 5 star commits and higher rated recruiting classes that there will be more early entrants to the NFL draft. But when almost everyone who is on the bubble declares rather than return it makes me wonder if they are leaving out of frustration. I.e. Zeke after the Michigan State game last year when he said "no way im coming back after that game". Hard to blame these players with some of the coaching of late. Id appreciate a culture that encourages kids to stay all 4 years and earn a degree regardless of draft stock. A degree will help a 1st rounder just as much as it will a 4th rounder.

Valid points. But consider if we had a returning class like they did i.e we lost Zeke and Bosa (fair as they were our best players) How much different would our team look if we returned Mike Thomas, Jalin Marshall, Vonn Bell, Eli Apple and even Cardale? Would we be in the same spot? 

I honestly can't say but its hard to imagine our offense would have been so inept with some experience at wide-out.

I just always thought one of the great things about college football is playing while earning a degree. If guys are already focused on the NFL - sort of difficult to imagine them truly caring about their current, college team or team-mates. Sort of the Roby Junior year-mentality but from day one.

I was honestly concerned for the safety of Clemsons D-Lineman. With JT throwing bullets into their facemasks concussion protocols really needed to be followed more.

Comment 01 Jan 2017
My frustration with the offensive coaching is honestly with all of them - Beck, Meyer, Smith, Warriner. Great coaches get the best out of their players. Our D coaches have excelled at this. Our offensive coaches have bottled up our play-makers talent and rarely seem to get anyone on the business-end of the ball to reach their fullest potential. The scariest thing to me is Urban over the last several weeks has seemed to accept this below average offensive strategy.

Amazing to rewatch the game and pay attention to how good their defensive front really is. They were immediately in the backfield.

If JTs protection could have held up for just a second or two it seemed several receivers were open and could have been targeted. 

I wonder if a lot of JTs hesitation is due to O Line's inability to slow/defend against simple shifts and blitz packages.
