    Our longtime coach (like 30 years long) retired a year ago. The new coach is entering his second year. We won the SOCON last year despite not having very high preseason expectations. He has kept with the triple option. It's hard to imagine us doing anything else. Wofford is no joke when you consider how small the school is. 750 male students a normal football team is 85 players so you have more than 10% of the student body that would be football players.

    Gotta fund the program somehow. Alabama has played an FCS team many times in the game before Auburn. Most of the SEC was playing them that week before their in state rival. Wofford happens to be a higher tier FCS team than some of the SEC teams have played. For instance the Gamecocks lost to Citadel in Spurrier's quitting year. Wofford basically owns the Citadel in football, they are in our conference.

    Clemson's main problem schedule wise is the complete destruction of the ACC as a competitive conference. They have TXAM and USCe out of conference, that's a pretty decent out of conference slate. They did a home and home with Georgia a few years ago. Many years they play two sec teams. They can't control how bad the rest of the ACC has gotten. I imagine the better they've gotten they are increasingly having difficulty finding teams that want to play them, just like Alabama does.

    Since I became a fan of Wofford in 2005 I can recall us playing: West Virginia, Wisconsin, Clemson, and USCx3. I'm forgetting some of the other big people we have played but it's not unusual for us to play against the big boys.

    Wofford basketball would've whooped Bama basketball last year, I know that.

    now flip the page, most talking heads wouldn't even considered the 2 same teams Clemson will play as our toughest matches.
    Probably none. We should not be thinking TA&M will be a cake walk for us. They should be really good this year. I think we will win them all and beat a very very good Clemson team in the Playoffs.

    They'll be much fresher, way fewer injuries than anyone else that makes the playoffs in relation to accumulated talent.

    I'd say LSU, but they somehow find a way to lose one that they should win every single year.
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    After reading all the horrible things drinking will do to you....I gave up reading.

    Not really hating on Clemson for there schedule because its not their fault but my god they basically have a one game season vs A&M tonight. The game against Syracuse can no longer be seen as a big game.

    I considered going to Wofford myself. I wasn’t too keen on going to a school smaller than my high school though.

    My niece plays soccer for Wofford.

    No doubt the fighting Dabos’ schedule is a joke, and they should be undefeated moving into the playoffs. Though Syracuse is trending down however, looks like Mack Brown’s Tarheels are trending up. Don’t get me wrong - I’m not calling for an upset, but I wouldn’t at all be surprised if NC puts up a fight at home when Clemson comes to visit in three weeks.

    They don’t play UVA, but they are probably the second best team in the conference, which I can’t believe I’m typing. Their QB is pretty dangerous.

    After tonight, i would say LSU would #gotsdemanoffense and we KNOW TN would not lol

    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.
