The only reason we weren’t losing by this much under CPJ was because he would bleed the clock. I guarantee you the last 4 years they could have named the score.
And we would actually drive the ball and score points.

Some of you guys are such pussbags. Did any of you truly think we would compete in this game? Clemson is a giant. At least half of their starters are NFL-caliber. Meanwhile, we're in year 2 of a complete rebuild. Our starting QB and RB are true freshmen. Yes, this loss is very ugly. Yes, it would've been nice to score more than 7 points. However, this isn't a program-ending loss like some of you are saying. Sack up and be patient. Are you truly ready to give up on a coach after 1.5 seasons?
By 'coach' do you mean Patenaude?

Clemson is a national championship team. They would beat Georgia or Bama by 3 or more touchdowns too. Don’t kid yourself. Collins just hast to get his own players in here. There is just way too much talent discrepancy between us and Clemson right now. And that’s not Collins fault. But he’s going to get his players in here and there are going to be better days.
I’d take both ugag and Bama +21. Clemson is good and minus the interception played a really good game. No hope of a pass rush, poor line play, and poor coaching ruined this game for GT.

None. I'm not going to say it was a program ender or anything but there was not a single positive to come out of that game for us, unless you want to count something like "no injuries".
Actually, there are some players who will grade out well. Jordan Williams and Ryan Johnson played pretty well. Domeneck played well.

It is one result out of five so far. We played an absolutely horrible game against a great team. We have two good wins over teams that may be at the bottom of our conference. But, still, we won. We have a horrific loss to Syracuse - the least talented team in our conference. That game is a worse result than today. At 3-2 I would feel like we were getting better, no matter the final score today. And we were pretty bad against UCF. My grades for the first five games - B, D, F, A, F. Game six is huge. With a W we can claim some progress with a 3-3 mid season record. With a loss and ND coming up, a second three win season may occur. Hard to imagine a path to a winning season if we lose next week. That’s a 1.6 GPA so far. Getting ATL of 2.0 needs a good performance next week.
This is a good take.

Yes

I figured we’d get hammered
This was embarrassing
He may be able to recruit - but other than that, I think he’s a f’in clueless clown
Yeah, I’ve had way too much to drink today
But there may not be enough alcohol to burn out of my memory bank the absolute utter crap fest I saw today

Some of em would if they thought Monken would be the coach lol
I can't believe I wanted to continue the TO. I would have been happy with it at the time.

The game sucked, but too many positives with Collins. The media is behind the rebuild and believe his recruiting obviously. Every announcer has talked about the rebuild. I think we'll be fine. Im just happy we have football this year.

This was certainly a setback, but there are some players that are progressing.
I hate seeing Jack Coco on the field, but damn that dude plays hard as hell. So respek on his name.


We can't have JC34 types on the field on offense if we want to compete with who we should be competing with.

As @OptionsJacket posted, this is a good take. A good summary of the season thus far. Let's see if the players (and staff) can make some adjustments and play much better next weekend.

I'm hoping to see more positives on the coaching side. Seeing a good effort next weekend after this debacle will speak well of the staff and players. Watching Gibbs is fun and I think that Sims has a lot of potential. No shortcuts (unfortunately) with upgrading the o-line. Hoping that the O coordinator can help scheme around that a bit. Then again, GT certainly won't see a team this good until next season.

We really can't afford to beat ourselves, more than other teams
