Clemson Coach Dabo Swinney Goes on Epic Postgame Rant About "Clemsoning"

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 4 months ago
Don’t mention the term “Clemsoning” around coach Dabo Swinney. The term “Clemsoning” came about after the program had trouble meeting preseason expectations or losing a game it was supposed to win. Some would also say a disappointing performance in a game also applies to the “Clemsoning” term. On Saturday, Clemson improved to 5-0 with a 43-24...

That is a reason to celebrate. The Clemson defense was great against Notre Dame’s big offensive line and they completely shut down the Notre Dame running game.

Virginia Cavaliers vs. Pittsburgh Panthers Preview and Prediction

By Marky Billson, 1 year 4 months ago
Could this be a season to remember for the Pittsburgh Panthers?  No, they are not ranked.

NC State Wolfpack vs. Virginia Tech Hokies Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 4 months ago
Teams don’t like playing an elimination game in early October. But that is essentially what is facing NC State and Virginia Tech on Friday night in Blacksburg. The Wolfpack are 4-1, but they dropped their ACC opener at home to Louisville this past Saturday. Since NC State resides in the Atlantic along with Florida State and Clemson, a 0-2 Wolfpack squad would have little chance...
