Default Real tough spot for Clemson tonight??

Only 5 days ago, Clemson played in Death Valley v. GT, which was probably their biggest game of the season thus far. I suppose you could argue that the FSU game was just as big. Anyhow, only 5 days later they need to travel to Blacksburg and play VT. On paper, clemson is much more talented than VT.

Blacksburg is a tough place to play...and it seems to me that Clemson is in a real tough stretch right now. Would not be surprised if they came out a bit flat tonight.

Anyone else have opinions on this game?

Robin,

The first part of the game is going to be really important. I think VT needs some of their special teams magic to win this game. They are pretty poor against decent competition on offense. Clemson has much much more talent. Question is, do they think they are hot sh!t for beating GT at home last saturday, or are they still hungry?

very hard to say..


if they still fell they have an outside chance at nt they should/ could throttle them.

i just hate laying points at night in tough environments vs teams with nothing to lose..

I'll take a shot on VT ML +126 1Q. They should be all jacked up early, not to mention that the Clemson special teams are below average.

I agree with MJH. This is an OTC type play all the way. Number gives the game away IMO and is short because of what he mentioned. However its still to much
by 1.5.

A couple of things bother me......

1. Hangover from the GT game

2. Clemson's poor special teams play. They are 9-13 in field goals this year. As I remember, this punter had trouble with blocked kicks last year. We all know how good VT's special teams typically are.

posted something a little earlier-think CLEM is underrated but would not leap on them for the reasons you posted, short rest off a big effort. If they do put together a big effort tonight they have to be considered one of the better one loss teams.

Yeah-- I still think Clemson is underrated they were impressive against a good team and get bumped to 10. The whole process is ridiculous.

I think everybody is correct above except the Va. Tech may be really bad. It is keeping me from really pulling the trigger on this one.

I say look at the under. These are two of the best defensive teams in the nation at least statistically. Virginia Tech has no offense. The starter is a passer who can't pass and the backup is a high school qb. Although I am still bitter from last Saturday's "under" loss due to Beamer's running up the score with 14 seconds left, IMO this guy is one of the biggest frauds in college football. He gets Eastern Michigan at home in September and wacks them 50-7 with no let up. When the leaves turn and the schedule gets tougher, Beamer ball becomes loser ball. As stated, Tech has no qb and a so-so running game. Beamer will need at least two TDs from his special teams and defense to win this. Based on past history, this is not impossible in Beamerland. Nonetheless, Clemson is probably 10 points better if ready to play after big win. Davis may be out, but Stuckey returns and he is a big weapon against Beamer's 9 in-the-box defense.

I thought i read that VT will be playing their back up qb a bit. He is much more mobile,, but not a good passer

MJH, Whitaker will play some but that may mean a series in each half with more if success follows. Both these guys may be history next year when a high school AA qb arrives.

IMO no play..Clemson has played very well, which Tech has not....AND Tigers off huge game vs G.Tech...but their only loss was unlcuk where they outplayed B.C. and lost in 2 overtimes...and have o respect Hokies getting points at home....I learned years ago that frequently the best bet is no bet....will wait for halftime, before plunking down cash, if at all
