    FTR, before this gets turned around into to saying that I said only 2 or 3 SEC teams could win with Clemson's schedule, I said I only have faith that 2 or 3 would go undefeated. Alabama and Georgia would, LSU might have enough talent to compensate for their coaches and lack of offense, but everyone else I would probably stay away from betting for an undefeated season.

    I guess the big thing here is the difference between could and would. I would agree with both sentiments under that context. 6 or 7 could, but 2 or 3 would.
    Apologies if I said anything that could be construed as a personal insult.

    I doubt they lose a game until after their conference championship. Clemson is good. Lets not kid ourselves.

    I do wonder how quickly clempson fans would turn on Dabo if he had a down year. Like a 10-3 or 11-2 miss the playoffs type year.

    Very true.
    By the time we got to the playoffs, our team was exhausted, and injury riddled.

    Not sure 6 or 7 teams in the SEC are able to beat TAM this year. Ga, Al, for sure the rest are a toss up with an edge to them. Not picking LSU to beat them this year. Interesting thing is SC and TA&M play each other this year. During the regular season the only team we play that Clemson would be in doubt of losing to is LSU. A&M may actually beat Clemson this year. They are going to be a tough out for us, certainly not over looking them.

    I agree, but that takes nothing away from how good their program is right now.

    Re: My goodness Clemson’s schedule is a JOKE.

    I think we have all seen can't lose seasons hinge on the drop of a flag.
    On the turn of a knee.
    On a critical player going down to a chop block.
    On a critical penalty at the end of a close game.

    I can no longer label a schedule 'A Joke', until the last down of the last game.
    Too many things can happen.

    Re: My goodness Clemson’s schedule is a JOKE.

    The problem is, they are obviously just as good as the very best out there. Joke schedule or not, if they make the playoff, they are likely to be the odds on favorite to win it again without key injuries happening late in the season.

    As someone else said, they are channelling 1990s Florida State. And while I always thought FSU was at a disadvantage come championship time due to the weak schedule (they only won 2 NCs during that long run of top 5 finishes), it actually helps Clemson today with the expanded schedule (as others have pointed out).

    Having said all of that, you never know where a Virginia or NC State over FSU style upset may come from. It looks like a weak schedule on paper... maybe the ACC will surprise us. That's what I will pull for.

    How easy Clemson’s schedule is is far less important than how good Clemson is...and they’re really, really good.

    You cannot really say right now who has a joke schedule or who has a hard schedule. Let's let the games play out and we can revisit at the end of the season who did have a joke schedule and who had a hard schedule.
