But the gap between Clemson and Wake is too big for Wake to beat Clemson with experience and coaching.
    State and Pitt got Clemson when they sucked. Clemson would clobber both today.

    Clemson had a bunch of guys injured early. Took Dabo and staff a while to get the talented but inexperienced backups to gel. They were mediocre early but had things together by senior day when Wake played them.

    Hopefully CTE Skalski finally leaves school. Not assuming he can graduate, just exhaust eligibility and be forced to leave, finally.

    Honestly same for us beating Florida State. If we played them today it would be a much closer game

    meh, both clemson and fsu played well in their season openers. i read an article that showed how most narratives of teams getting significantly better or worse over the season are almost always BS, which i generally agree with. remember, the computers thought clemson was good at the middle of the year, even removing the preseason component.

    i think the bigger difference is that ncst and pitt got clemson at home. plus the general fact that anything can happen in one game.

    Pickett is ACC Player of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year. Hate that heís getting all the accolades instead of Hartman.

    Ö yet I also love it

    Same thing with Lamar Jackson. There is a bad bug going around.

    It appears that WF has superior flu vaccination and prevention policies than recent opponents.

    The flu does not go down on the official scorecard. Just win.
    This is my signature.

    Private school, lower enrollment, fewer day students, easier to isolate from the general student body...makes sense.

    He's good. Weird how all we heard all season was how good Wake was because of the Covid super-seniors. Like that's the only way this could be possible. How many of those start on offense? I really don't know. What I do know is Pitt wouldn't be playing this Saturday without their super senior at QB.

    55. Boston College

    <59. Wake Forest>
    68. Syracuse
    69. Louisville nice
    76. ODU
    81. UNC
    108. UVA
    115. Duke

    so, Pitt is a tier below Clemson/NC State, but better than the rest of our schedule on the defensive side of the ball.

    potential bowl opponents: Ole Miss #35, UCLA #67, Arizona State #27
    Those numbers also reflect that Pitt hasnít played one of the best offenses in the country and those other opponents have.

    hard to believe that there are defensive efficiency ratings worse than ours
