Now this is the Clemson I remember FSU winning against. Too bad Florida State’s offense is literally HIV Positive for the third year in a row. Not going to gonna lie, If FSU went 1-11 this year I would not be surprised.


nosignal2020-

The ACC just won't let the game continue.

For once I can be glad I picked my user name


OhioLion

Is the the .500 Clemson our parents told us about


[deleted]

And Clemson shows just how spectacular it is NOT.


tigerllort

I just don’t understand the shit talk from a team like SCAR. What have you EVER done? lol


[deleted]

Play a far more difficult schedule, that’s what.


tigerllort

You are part of our schedule lol


[deleted]

Yours is ranked among the easiest in the country. And we’re likely one of the most difficult teams on it despite our badness. The ACC is trash. The fact that clemson can’t do shit without Lawrence and Etienne is on full display. They leave, and you collapse.


tigerllort

Ok? Our best two players ever leave, it’s not that surprising that there was a huge drop off.


[deleted]

Dabo’s a muppet.


tigerllort

A title winning muppet.


[deleted]

A now-unranked muppet. Join the club!


tigerllort

We already got the prize, it’s really not that upsetting *shrug*


CrownTownLibrarian

A middle of the road ACC team tbh.


lyin_reaf

It is kinda nice seeing Dabo's fake condescending preachiness take a hit


CrownTownLibrarian

Wasnt he supposed to be gone anyway?


GoblinTradingGuide

I mean, he said he would quit if they pay the players.


Clemson_19

On the upside. Tickets might be a little cheaper. We'll get rid of some bandwagon fans. Campus might be infested with fewer New Jersey kids. We'll save a lot of money on travel. SILVER LININGS ALL AROUND! GO TIGERS!


AncientCityGator

I got lucky when I met my wife in 2016. She comes from a Clemson family (her dad and all her aunts and uncles went there). The first time she laid her head on my shoulder was watching the national championship game for the 2016 season. I got lucky that I started to be a Clemson fan during the 16-20 seasons. I’m not gonna bail on the Tigers now.


Clemson_19

Good on ya mate! Congrats on the happiness :)


ghostdancesc

Lmao fewer new jersey kids. South Carolina’s campus is filled with the same kids and losing doesn’t make it any better.


Clemson_19

I hate to hear that


Testingdoubletest

UofSC student here. We are also infested with new jersey kids, so it definitelt isnt football bringing them down here


Clemson_19

I had a girl at my bar say if we lost today that she was going to transfer. I told her to go ahead and transfer, and don't call yourself a Clemson fan if you're not going to cheer for a 2-2 team as hard as you cheer for the 4-0 team. We still have a lot to play for! I've been needing a good excuse to go back to where Orlando to ride some new rides! And I've also been needing an excuse to visit a lot of friends in Nashville! There's more to football than the playoffs.


JimBeam823

I went to Clemson during the Tommy West era. When a 2-8 Clemson beat a 1-10 South Carolina, we tore down the goal post and threw it into the library reflection pond. More recently, we started 2014 at 1-2. Finished 10-3. We’ve still got a lot to play for.


veringer

1998 was my freshman year. I helped carry one of the uprights down to TTT, and eventually the reflection pool. I even brought a sharpie (because I had made a sign) and it came in handy as half the damn hill wrote some graffiti on the goal posts. I am also originally from New Jersey, and I feel like the hate is probably deserved (generally), but I would caution against over-generalizing.


ghostdancesc

Lmao this is what football is all about. SC vs Clemson


itsmeduhdoi

…that’s a long walk carrying goalposts


veringer

The goalposts went downtown first. College Ave was effectively blocked and the cops were getting chippy, so that's when the hive mind determined the reflection pool was a better destination. IIRC, the PKAs fished out a main post and cross-bar and installed it in their front yard on 93. It stayed there for at least a few days.


nope96

A long walk up a steep hill


JimBeam823

We tried to take it downtown first, but the cops told us to keep it on campus.


nope96

The one to downtown’s not much better lol, not as steep but it’s longer


Clemson_19

I was just a wee lad but I remember how exciting it was to go to a place like Boise Idaho for a bowl game. Blue field? Snow man Howard's Rock?! I was thrilled. That's the kind of things that make college football special. Not the ESPN playoff in some generic NFL stadium in a place I don't care about. Plenty left to care about and accomplish this season.


JimBeam823

I don’t think we’re going to be the only “powerhouse” watching the playoff on TV this year.


JimBeam823

Woodrow Dantzler’s last game.


duvie773

Clemson needs a new QB. This 30 year old dude ain’t cutting it


JimBeam823

Clemson needs a new offense. It’s not just the QB.


NullARC

Stop making sense and spitting facts and making me upvote a Carolina fan. I wanna be mad!


duvie773

I know how you feel. My girlfriend’s a Tiger and she’s furious right now

Clemson fans hate this guy

This week on SEC Shorts


mghollan

Underrated comment lol


SirloinPro

All the people surprised by this didn’t watch the GT game


SolidLikeIraq

We’re a bad football team.


JimBeam823

Defense is solid, but every part of the offense is broken.


jaycrushyou

We have a bad offense... you can’t group our defense with them


SolidLikeIraq

Well, we’ve got a lot of folks injured on Defense as well, so collectively. But agreed - full strength we’re a top 10 Defense (When the offense has more than 7 yards over 7 series in the first half.)


ninetimesoutaten

yea what happened, seemed like every play someone went down


Benner16

I say if fans get in the face of players it’s free game.


RealD79

Spitting is still wrong tho


HAHAHABirdman

Great flair combo my guy


Benner16

I didn’t see spit. Looked like yelling to me, but I couldn’t for sure tell to be honest. Obviously spitting isn’t good.


pardonmyignerance

I don't think you're the one who gets to decide this, though.


Benner16

No shit. There is a reason rushing the field isn’t technically allowed and schools get fined for it. Fans shouldn’t be able to surround the other team. Fans don’t get protection because they aren’t elite athletes. If they want to be about it, be about it.


pardonmyignerance

Surrounded by hundred of fans versus a few "elite" athletes, I like the fans' odds.


Benner16

Kind of my point. The players deserve as much protection as the fans. But this thread clearly shows the mob gets more protection than the few athletes.


yanquicheto

To spit at them?? Williams straight up spat in the face of a female student.


PowerHour1990

Dabo "I get to enter first" Swinney is learning what Rocky learned in the third movie about believing your own legend.

I think Georgia traded their bad luck with Clemson.

Not wrong. I think we’d smack this Clemson team though.

I’d be a lot happier if I knew we’d beat Akron.


Svennerson

The WFU/NCSt/BC dogfight for the Atlantic has begun.


chrisncsu

We've survived Clemson. Now DJU has no pressure and nothing to lose. Goodluck Atlantic Bros!


CugMuzzler

Everyone knows that it's Syracuse's division to lose.


CG-11

Technically true


jaybigs

I just moved from North Carolina. I wish I was still there to party with my Wolfpack friends back there tonight. Hopefully they drink well tonight.

chrisncsu

We shot ourselves in the foot, over, and over, and over. I don't even know what to do with my hands.


lastjedi23

You know what? You know what.


Chucktown_Tiger

Helps you had 5 extra players


chrisncsu

To be fair our best defensive player, and preseason All-ACC LB and a favorite for ACC DPOY, was out, mixed with a starting safety and starting NT, so 3 starting defensive players out for this game. But sure, spin it how you'd like.


MojoToTheDojo

LOL


pardonmyignerance

Lol, the class we expect from y'all.


SenorOogaBooga

LETS GOOO FOR NOW GAMECOCKS HAVE BETTER RECORD


FastRiddickGroot

Lol let’s revisit that in a few hours. Might, might not.


SenorOogaBooga

That's why I said for now lol. I fully expect us to lose to Kentucky


__Nightwing__

I love you NC State


robotstookourwomen

RG3 actually did a really good job. Oh yeah and eat shit Dabo.


nighttown

Yeah, I am going to have to pass on the this Ludachris & Johnny Cochran duo. They might do well with separate co host but together they were unbearable.


majoravatar

Are you kidding? I was laughing about his constant mistakes throughout the whole game. He called James Skalski "Jamie" like 9 times, and thought we had a 3 and out 2 minutes in right after we had a first. I know he's new to this, but it was monumentally bad. On the other hand, he's a natural speaker. He just doesn't know what to say.


CUsurfer

I thought he was great. I thought he brought a nice light heartedness to the commentary and some fun energy. Nothing crazy insightful x and o wise but refreshing compared to a C-list Raycom crew or something


robotstookourwomen

I mean he's still new cut the guy a break. Thought he had some insightful analysis combined with a natural speaking ability. All the press conferences as a QB probably helps. Reminded me a bit of Romo with his personality and cracking jokes.


cornstraws

I didn't even realize it was him for awhile, but I thought whoever it was was doing a good job. Honestly one of the better ESPN broadcasts I've seen in awhile


Status-Duck

Dabo to USC to avoid this team.


WhatSort

Kelly Bryant wins this game.


TigerTerrier

Cole stoudt wins that game


chrisncsu

Stephen Haushka wins the game too, haha.


JimBeam823

Kelly Bryant got a bunch of shit for not being Tajh, DW, or Trevor, but he was a pretty damn good college QB. Only one loss when healthy, and that was to one of Saban’s best defenses.


WhatSort

Absolutely. It wasn’t meant as a jab at KB. I told a coworker today that we’ve been drinking champagne for the past 5 years and now we’re back to PBR.


JimBeam823

I also think only KB wins that 2018 Texas A&M game. KB made Trevor earn it, which made him a better QB. People forget that even Trevor and DW had a learning curve. We’ve lost a lot more on offense than people realize. I’m not willing to write off DJU just yet, but that whole side of the ball has a lot of work to do.


jaycrushyou

Yeah... at this point it’s time to sit DJ down and give Pom a chance. Maybe the completion will make DJ a bit more urgent with his poor development


wolowizard9

Who was the color commentator in this one?


NullARC

RGIII


[deleted]

[удалено]


NullARC

Best part of the game honestly. He had no problems calling out or offensive coordinator on his terrible play calling. His enthusiasm was great as well.


wolowizard9

Agreed. Same thing with officiating. Called out the big misses, but acknowledged that that just happens sometimes.


georgiaboy_11

RGIII


paxrom2

Robert Griffin III


wolowizard9

Thanks. I hated facing him. But really enjoyed his commentary. Didn’t pull any punches and he was actually paying attention to the game.


CugMuzzler

pappapirate

all the clemson flairs are GONE and i dont blame them


FastRiddickGroot

Lol probably getting drunk to erase that monstrosity instead of on reddit


OldBirchTree1957

I'm still here.


majoravatar

Really?


jdk2087

Good game NC State. Well deserved! On another note. I feel like the DJ we saw last year is gone. Those two games must have just been outliers because I haven’t seen a single glimpse of that DJ this year. I think Cade is probably going to come in and take the starting position. I just don’t see DJ improving like he should be.


JimBeam823

The O-Line we saw last year is gone. The WRs we saw last year are gone. Travis Etienne is gone. Teams are dropping 8 and daring us to run and we can’t.


Astolfo_is_Best

He just hasn't grown at all as a player. It feels like he might have taken his position for granted and got complacent.


jdk2087

He hasn’t. At all. And as someone looking from the outside in, it’s heart breaking. Everyone’s seen him have glimpses of greatness. I *know* he can be a top caliber player. But, I think coming behind Lawrence he just is lost. Lost. That is the best way I can describe his playing right now. He just looks lost.


elgenie

QBs need playmakers, or at least a threatening running game

I remember doing that after we beat Oregon a couple years ago Fun times. Head groundskeeper got super pissed off though because we completely fucked up the grass

Oregon and UW I'll cherish those field rushes forever


crazydoc2008

We're not a top 10 team. Great game NC State, congrats Wolfpack. Good luck to y'all.


OldBirchTree1957

Well there ya go. Time to focus on winning the Atlantic. No more gimme games. BC comes to Death Valley undefeated. GG NCSU.


custombimmer

Time to watch UFC


espressojunkie

Great job NC State.


FarsightsBlade

Clemson isnt a quality win anymore.


MojoToTheDojo

Usually what happens when NC State beats a ranked team


crazydoc2008

We now have 2 quality losses, so that's gotta count for something, right? Right??


Youre_A_Dummy

Lol, no


OldBirchTree1957

Nope. Just an average ACC team.


[deleted]

What a game. Can't even call this an upset. NC State balled out


nighttown

We had no business being in this ball game. NC State sucked, we just sucked harder and the there were three huge calls at the end of the fourth quarter that went against us, one no call on the face mask and one not even a second glance or reply to see if there was holding on the d on the last play. Like I said, Clemson did not deserve to win but Jesus NC State made every effort to give us a shot at it.


SaltyTurdLicker

I’m glad the wide left kicks ultimately didn’t cause NC State to lose


t_effin_d

Yo, did that Clemson receiver spit on a fan? Kinda looked like it from the camera angle


Mediocre-Leek-9292

She probably deserved it


Supremebeing51

Saw that too. I hope not. Hope it was just a yell. If he did spit, I want him off the team. No place for that disgusting behavior


Mediocre-Leek-9292

Ej Williams, no dude we need him to probably jump in the slot.


Chuck_Foolery

If he did, dude should sit the rest of the year.


t_effin_d

Lol yeah, in jail that is


Chuck_Foolery

Dont disagree and if Dabo is who he claims to be, he'll boot the guy from the team.


CugMuzzler

that's assault brotha

All those players sacrificed and they couldn’t get the win. Ouch.

This was made better by RG3

Straight back to California.

Lol at the Clemson player trying to fight everyone in that mob


im-not-here3

Is DJ getting benched? Seems like the O don’t believe in him.


DigitalMonocle

Blows my mind that he is struggling with that many blue chip players. It's not like he has d2 players


cabbagehead112

Clemson better not be ranked


packeddit

YES!!! NO NC STATE SHIT!!! We win!!! GO PACK!!!


CG-11

Well…there was NC State shit, we just overcame it!


OnwardSoldierx

The ACC has been eliminated from the playoffs


TigerTerrier

For sure. So now it's probably pac12, and either big 12 and big10 or 2 sec teams


cornstraws

A 2 loss team has never made the CFP. Why the hell are they already talking about the playoff


Tlomz27

Gotta put someone in over Cincy if they finish undefeated


cornstraws

Haha well I don't think buckeyes are going to make it either this year so there should be room for 2 new teams at least


Tlomz27

I mean if you y'all finish undefeated... I'd bet a large sum of money they'd get in.
