    Sounds like we put the squeeze on him and he’s likely dropping soon. With Bryn Tucker committing Thursday this is a nice OL class we’re putting together. :gfa:

    Their message board people say so :meh:

    I’m skeptical but who knows. Strelow says his floor is a guy that started like 40 games for us, so I’ll take him.

    For a Clemson OL class, yes, it’s pretty good. It’s enough to dominate the ACC. Mayes looks solid but Tucker...mehhhh. I would be furious with that class.

    I get that it’s a shtick but the whole ‘good enough in the ACC but not the SEC’ take should have died this offseason

    Why? Clemson is a great team in a dogshit conference. They have the easiest road to the Playoffs of anyone. They have to get by the mighty Eagles of BC and vicious Wolfpack of NC State.

    Our OL certainly wouldn’t hold up vs a solid, SEC DL. They certainly couldn’t push one around for almost 11 minutes and make them quit in the 4th quarter of a National Championship game.

    It’s amazing. When they win, it’s because the brutal SEC schedule made them battle tested. When they lose, it’s because the brutal SEC schedule wore them out.

    The SEC does just mean more...excuses.

    We beat Bama by 4 TDs because Bama was fatigued from the gauntlet of the SEC schedule. Definitely not because we were a better team or anything.

    It wasn't really the SEC, it was more of an existential fatigue brought on by a decade of dominance and wondering what does it all really mean. We lost to try to see if we could feel again.

    I want to stay out of this, but the rumors were that Clemson was able to devote time to practice and prepare for Bama every week through the season. If that is true, and Bama were not able to spend a similar amount of time due to tougher matchups, it would give credibility to the argument.

    However who knows if its true. All I know is Clemson beat Bama, something very few teams in the SEC have done recently.

    Again, I am not saying it happened. I am saying it was the story going around after the game, and I am saying IF it happened, than you can give SOME credibility that Clemson's weaker schedule gave them an advantage to preparing early on.

    Again, this takes nothing away from Clemson. They won, plain and simple.

    Bama won by an avg margin greater than Clemson weekly in conference. I guess it was because they were fully focused on that gauntlet of a schedule.
