    The CFP champions tri-pod will assuredly win again. No need to play the season.

    indeed. Clemson are Champs, the rest of em arent. Congrats Clemson.

    But really. Id be shocked if the top 10 isnt made up entirely of teams with a top 15 "football budget" with really only Michigan, USC, Penn State, Nebraska & FSU missing from the big budget schools (well maybe 1 or 2 more, but yall get the point)

    Wrong. Kevin Sumlin is still collecting a paycheck from A&M but he is not actively coaching our team.

    2nd game of the year, still playing 2 QBs and your QB/receivers made so many catches that were very close to being in defenders’ hands it was crazy. Jimbo was a good matchup for Clemson too from his FSU years.

    Also, call not blown... the receiver did fumble the ball in and out of the end zone.

    If we would’ve played later in the season, even in college station at night again, a blowout like everyone else.

    I don’t know what they’re losing but I can see A&M being a top 10 team.

    Sets up nicely for the weak OOC leading in to the “they’re beating each other up!!!” narrative.

    It was our 2nd game of the year as well.

    We improved tremendously over the course of the year which we ended by beating the 2nd best team in your conference by 39 points at a neutral site.

    One led you to the CFB playoff the year before and the other won you a natty this year.

    Sorry we are talented?

    Dabo coaches in those games as well.

    No he didn’t.

    No you wouldn’t.

    You bet your ass we will.

    It was our second game and first real game trying to figure out the QB situation. You had a returning starter.

    Jimbo on A&M was an unknown. Dabo and the coordinators that have been around for years not as much.

    The call was made and replay backed it up. We’ll stick with that for now and not your take.

    Lol... what makes you think Clemson wouldn’t blow A&M out on a neutral field after they just blew out 2 playoff teams, including Bama, who blew A&M out?

    Lol, you actually think NC State was the 2nd best team in the ACC when they finished 3rd in the division and you played them in the tax slayer bowl.

    I’m done with you. Control your homer takes after winning a meaningless bowl and having a season that was just ok.

    We are currently ranked 9th for 2019.
    Nobody played Clemson closer this year.
    We have one of only 3 active head coaches that have won a natty.

    We are VERY relevant.

    True, but the preseason poll is still a thing, right? I'm suspicious that the actual preseason poll will look eerily similar to this.

    All signs point to not really.

    Your happiness over these moral victories like playing Clemson close before Lawrence was ready to play or the tax slayer bowl just makes that point.

    Plenty of meaningful actual victories this year.

    Beat a top 10-15 Kentucky team.
    Beat #7 LSU
    Beat the second place ACC team by 39

    And we did all this in jimbo’s first year with all Sumlin’s players.

    Neither Mack or Les has actively coached a practice, scrimmage or game with their current team. This they are not an active coach.

    If we played Clemson to within 2 points in Jimbo’s first year with all sumlin’s Recruits just think how it’s going to be once we start stacking top 3 classes.

    Try to win your division first.

    Or maybe just make it to a decent bowl and win that. Whichever comes first.
