    I don't know what the line will be by game time, but I think the final score will be a less than 20 point loss. Both teams will play almost every player in uniform.

    Nobody knows how Patenaude will call this game, so at least there will be a little uncertainty as far as Clemson's preparation goes. I hate for us to get embarrassed in a prime time national game, but at least nobody will have any expectations for Tech, and the announcers will likely be charitable with their comments. I just plan to enjoy seeing what the new offense looks like and move on to week 2.

    Our defense is gonna shut them down. Then all their opponents will have the blueprint. They don’t win a game all year.

    The odds are set to get the money even. I could see the public seeing us as 5 TD underdogs. We barely made a bowl and they have played for the natl championship 3 years in a row.

    Still, we get to play them and we will have the same number of guys on the field as they do so let's go!

    not to wish my life away but the next 2 months aren't going to be anything but hot and a pain in the ass at work anyway so...

    32 pts though? Have we ever lost by 32 pts to clemson? I'd be willing to put my money where my mouth is if I had a short-term investment broker available.

    In years past it seems he's been pretty gracious about this against us. Probably something to do with him and CPJ being friends.

    If he has an insurmountable lead, he won't get Trevor hurt running up the score. He gets dinged up and the aTm game is a loss

    I recall a time back in FSU's heyday, they were scheduled to play Clemson in Death Valley...and were favored by 35 points. Clemson, fans and players alike, were outraged at the line, calling it ridiculous, crazy and unrealistic.
    FSU beat them by 50.

    Not saying that's what will happen here, but let's try to be realistic.

    I have attended every game @ Clemson for years. My friends seats are on the visitors side, 30 yard line, sixth row. Over the past 4-5 games there the talent disparity -size and speed in particular, has been obvious from the first series.

    All that being said, we've yet to be drilled by 35 points. Three of these games were played in the rain, two of which were torrential downpours.

    October 23, 2010 Clemson, SC Clemson 27–13
    October 6, 2012 Clemson, SC #15 Clemson 47–31
    November 14, 2013 Clemson, SC #8 Clemson 55–31
    October 10, 2015 Clemson, SC #6 Clemson 43–24
    October 28, 2017 Clemson, SC #7 Clemson 24–10

    I had a parlay crushed by Bobby, when he kicked a 40+ field goal in the waning seconds of a game they were up 4 tds. That guy knew what the spread was and made every effort to beat it.

    I don't think Dabo is the same way.

    Unlike previous years, both teams will be running high tempo offenses. That alone will result in more scoring. Clemson should easily score in the 40s given our lack of a defensive line and an untested secondary running new defenses against a probable Heisman trophy winner. Remember South Florida last year when our defense under a new coordinator let them go through us like a hot knife through butter? 50s wouldn't be out of the question. The only question is how much we will score and how soon Clemson calls off the dogs. I believe if I were betting, my money would go on Clemson.

    We honestly should have won that 2012 game. We were up in the 4th quarter and had the ball on the one and got stuffed then fumbled in the endzone. We torched them all game and just gave away the game at the end.

    Well we had that one coming. When your freshman quaterback says "we're not going to lose again", the opposition is not going to take that lightly.

    It's two field goals to end both halves, not a missed PAT. Way more likely than you're thinking.
