    I think Clemson could have won by 70-80 last year if they had wanted. This year I think they could win by 50-60. But, truth is they play two teams who can beat them their first 13 games this year. And those two teams are A/M and Syracuse. They play those two games right after GT. All of their game-planning will go into those two games. TL might only play a half vs. GT. I expect GT to be trying to score until the last second. So, I took GT +34 last week in Vegas. $5000 wager. Hope I'm right.

    Interesting info re CPJ and Dabo. If those guys want to punish us for daring to compete for recruits......grrrrr. I hope your take on the outcome is correct.

    I'm going out on a limb with the following:

    We pick off three passes;
    CGC goes for broke on offense and we get some lucky breaks.

    So I expect a 39-24 type thing.

    First game of the year so Clemson's offense starts off slowly. Coupled with breaking in an entirely new defensive line and not having a lot of tape of what we will want to do offensively & defensively, we will keep it closer than 5 TD's, I think.

    I think we cover and surprise some folks doing it. I see the 3-4 scores down an appropriate ending to the game

    I'm thinking 49-17 bad guys, so I would GT +34. I agree with others who think Clemson will ease up once the outcome is secure.

    Opening games tend to be closer than expected. Rust is the great equalizer. Line is a bit high.

    A leveraged bet. Not too shabby. TL might get a high ankle sprain in warm-ups, or have the flu. A lot can happen.

    Vegas understands rust, but they aren't picking a winner, they are choosing a line that divides the betting evenly. They understand and care about the idiosyncrasies of the betting public much more keenly than they care about rust.

    I don’t necessarily believe it but I like the way you’re thinking.

    If they try to win by 34, their QB will miss the next two games at the least. I would expect them to win by 24-27 with a lot of subs playing early.

    On our side, I see us running very few plays in the second half, but repping the crap out of the basics.

    It is a practice game for us, pure and simple.

    First games are always interesting. I’ve seen a lot of weird things happen in first games. I’m not expecting the game to be close but no way it will be 34 points. Clemson won’t be firing in mid season form and if they get up early they won’t be leaving the studs in. Our guys will be fighting for playing time even if we’re down 28 so I can see us scoring some meaningless TD’s late. I just don’t think we’ll get whipped as bad as most think we will.

    When is the last time GT was a 34 point underdog? In the early 1990's against FSU?

    It’s been a while. I’ll guess 14,000 days. Amirite?

    We’re winning this game and y’all are gonna lose your minds. Half of you will book your trips to New Orleans.
