Default I believe that we will beat Clemson.

Hard work and discipline always pays off. I believe that the kids will give their best effort and win the turnover battle and win the game.

Well, Georgia’s coach, Smart, was quoted as saying he thinks we’ll win out!!
It is possible, albeit not probably!!
But if they play like they are capable of playing they can do it!!! Being at home will definitely help!!!
It would be REAL nice to ruin their chance of a playoff spot!!!!!!!!!!

We will do a better job of competing this year and will continue our streak of holding our opponent to under 30 points. Yes I know we have one more game before the Clemtech game.

Smart probably though he would win out as well.

It is possible to win, we will need better QB play than we had against UF. We will have to find a way to run the ball consistently. We will need our injured DB's back.

Jake won't be sick. Clemson is vulnerable to the deep pass.
But, yes, we MUST be able to make short down and distances via rushing the ball and extend drives into deeper territory, ensuring either touchdowns, short, successfully made fgs, and, at worst, leave them with the ball deep in their territory, and, above all, consume clock.

We can do it.

Default Re: I believe that we will beat Clemson.

I think we'll see Jake keep the ball on some of those options, especially in the second half and our running game will set up the pass enough to keep the tater offense off the field. I've been telling my friends at work that if we can avoid any major injuries the rest of the year we have a good chance to beat them. And our guys have the extra motivation from the beat down last year. But I was hoping Deebo would be back for the game.
They are definitely beatable. I can imagine them watching the uga/Auburn game and thinking "Damn, I'm glad we caught Auburn early in the year."

Default Re: I believe that we will beat Clemson.

My feelings wouldn't be too hurt if FSU beat Clemson last saturday, but to be honest with you i want us to be the ones to do it.


To ****ing ruin and end their season.

To make Dabo whine and look depressed in his post-game interview

To take a top 25 ranking

To show all those in state recruits who's really on the rise

To beat a playoff team

To bring our program on the rise




God i can already taste it. We can do it. WE CAN DO IT!!!!!

After the game last year the players said we will NOT be outworked we will NOT be out hustled . I believe and have since summer this game this year will be a real hit um in the mouth game from us. Orange will feel the wrath of the trash talking that was going on last year. Our guys have done a lot of growing up.

Default Re: I believe that we will beat Clemson.

The games where we really beat the Taters down under SOS we had a hard running game that ground them down (we had a QB that could run it) and we had brutal defenses that punished the Taters on every play. We had aggressive DB’s who made them pay. The last two years their WR’s made our DB’s Pay.

Who will pay this year?

Defense will be good enough if they contain Bryant, but Roper has to call a perfect game and we have to execute. Bentley has to complete passes early. Win the turnover battle and good special teams play. Parker has to make his field goals.

Default Re: I believe that we will beat Clemson.

The stars are aligning. Clemson seems to be struggling a bit more towards the end of the season. USC is finding a running game. No injuries this weekend hopefully and we have a pretty healthy team heading into the game. Night game. ESPN. Muschamp knows he can make a national statement on the program and his career. Dabo and co. realize they have zero room for error to make the playoffs. And even if they do win, they still have got to know that Miami is waiting for them. Muschamp and T Rob have seen the Clemson offense and gotten a game under their belt. There's nothing new there. I like our secondary with King, Fenton, Lammons, and Williams on the field. Skai needs an int or two.

I'm convinced.

Default Re: I believe that we will beat Clemson.

Not saying any of this has anything to do with our chances at success vs. the taters, but it is interesting to note the correlation between our number of wins in a season and success against them. I saw somebody bring it up a while back and then again someone brought it up recently. So just out of curiosity, I ran the numbers while I was bored at work. (Unfortunately I left the data on my work computer. I'll post it once I get back in the office.)

Going back to the 50's, each season with 6+ wins saw us winning just a little over 50% of the time. At 7+, it jumps to around 75%. I think 8+ wins was over 80% in our favor. (I can't quite remember that one for some reason.) And we have a 100% win percentage when we hit 9+ wins on the season.

Now as we all know, correlation does not equal causation, so take those numbers with a grain of slat. (hehe) It is funny to look at though, especially when those history buffs come out to play.
