Ok, so that sucked. But that’s literally a nightmare scheduling scenario for Collins in game 1, and not something he can control. Clemson, to a man, is bigger and faster and stronger and has been since 2014 – or even before that. In 2008, CPJ threw together a best-case-scenario season, obviously highlighted by the UGA win but including some other big ones as well. But guess what? Even that team got steamrolled by LSU in the bowl game. We just couldn’t hang. That’s the same thing that happened here, but this Clemson team is much better than that LSU team, and we unfortunately had to play them first. There’s hope, even for this year. Can’t let it set the tone.
