Dabo knows he needs to finish the reg season No 1

and thats why we are scoring 70 plus on teams.

we want Bama vs OSU in semis and play the winner. we should avoid playing them both in playoffs. previous years, we usually had to beat 2 good teams to win NC when Bama usually played Iowa in semis.

I think we have the strength of wins ( Miami and ND) to finish no 1 if we just win from now on out.

is a better QB than their 1st string defense is a defense.


Not sure. Here’s my take.

1. #1 has never won championship in playoff format.
2. Clemson won in even numbered years from the 2nd seed.
3. Just make the playoffs and spot the d@mn ball!

LSU was CFP #1 last year.

And had by far the easier semi-final.

It would be nice to be #1.
So long as the committee doesn’t do the same crap they did to us in 2015 when they jumped Mich St over Oklahoma so #2 Bama would have the much, MUCH, easier game while we had to face Oklahoma with Mayfield, Perine, and Mixon.

LSU had the better team in 2019, and when we played them for the NC, they beat a reloading team without much depth on the defense after our championship winning season of 2018. With a reloading team in 2019, we lost ONE game, and that was to a junior/senior laden team LSU. How many games has LSU won in their reloading year. LSU just got very lucky that we were reloading, and we would squash them this season with still a young team without the experience they had last season when they beat us!!!!

Don't stop the man when he is rolling. We can tell him later.

Dabo’s team is scoring 70 points because they are executing plays at every opportunity and that results in a score. It really is simple. It’s not dabo saying “let’s run up the score” it’s dabo, putting players in and they try their best and then they score. Citadel may have been the same but those players didn’t score. Easy peezy

IMO, the key is avoiding Alabama in a semifinal because they tend to load up on that game.

I do like your overall point. If the #4 team is a weakfish compared to everyone else, would be nice to be #1.

No matter what it will be
if Tigers are number one- they got the easy game and the other team was worn from a hard game
if we go in as number two or number three it will be we did not play anybody
if we go in number 4 it will be we got in by the skin of out teeth and a better team was left out because of it.

If we didn't get in at all- it would be we were overrated and the four best teams should have been 3 SEC and the bucknuts.

Facts of life.


If Dabo were trying to run up the score

Clemson would be scoring 100+ points a game and not pulling starters after 2 quarters.

First off just finish, hopefully undefeated.
Secondly, you have us beating Notre Dame with your strength of schedule comment. Last time I checked ,we haven't played Notre Dame yet, and while they may not be world beaters,we do have to go there which, IMO, makes it our toughest game in the regular season.
Another thing to consider is if the Irish have only one loss, ( to us)we could face them again in the ACCCG if they only have one loss.
Finally,I don't know why people want to jump the gun and talk about finishing the season #1 when our next game is against a team that has nothing now to lose by pulling the upset.
Seems I recall we had to go 90+ yards the last time they were here to pull out the win.
Dabo knows what he needs to do, and right now I suspect he is focused on Syracuse.

Certainly doesn't hurt to be number 1.

We need to be top 4.

We only did that in 1 game

GT keyed on the run to take away ETN, so TL16 went to receiver with single coverage. GT stuck with their plan and got smeared.

I don’t see us doing it again this week.

BUT if we are dropping dimes on the post route when up by 40 then we’ll know the staff got the message that you have to crush ACC teams to maintain #1.

I think it’s the right move, given the B1g love fest that’s about to be unleashed this week.
