Who we are is what We do with what We have!
- Jan 7, 2007
I agree, but Clemson does not make it to the CFP playing a SEC Schedule but once in a blue moon.I mean, sure but Clemson essentially had 12 scrimmages and two NFL franchise caliber QBs.
I'll never underestimate this coaching staff, and I think we're about to be routinely landing elite QB's... but yeah, Clemson is kind of an outlier. I don't think the expanded playoffs are going to be like march madness where there are cindarella stories. I think there will be a lot of one sided games and generally speaking, the teams with the highest rated recruiting classes will have a direct correlation to who ultimately wins it all.
Fortunately for us, we're about to start recruiting at an elite level as well.
By virtue of winning the ACC they are for most cases vaulted into the CFP. Even this year, if they had won against USCe they would have been in the discussion and consideration.
So Clemson can accomplish more with lower recruiting rankings than a majority of SEC Schools.
For us the same because of fit and coaching and we can win the SEC. We are now building depth which is critical to our success.
