After watching this? I take it all back. Cuse by a million.
I’ve said a million times we need a sponsor to buy this stuff for the entire buildingI know this may seem like a silly topic, but if Syracuse is trying to build a tradition, which includes a yearly “orange out”, then why are they doing it half-ass by not including the non-student fans. From my understanding, all other schools who do their version of color out hand out little towels or pom poms.
I know people were talking about building a new tradition on this forum before and looking at entrance music and Wisconsin’s jump around as examples, but this one seems super easy and not much thought is needed.
This just seems like a poor mans version of the white out and is a missed opportunity to not included the whole stadium. I know it’s silly, but it’s also the little things that help a program.
Agreed and welcome to the board!It feels like way too much credence is being given to Clemson. I'm not saying were going to win necessarily, but I feel like they are worse team than Wake who we took to the wire. This isn't your usual Clemson team, their defense is really good, but their offense is borderline worthless. Let's hope we can wear down that defense, and the offense doesn't find a way to click this week.
I thought the same thing watching him. Physically he checks every box, but when the game starts it doesn't click for some reason. If he can't figure it out, I'm sure Clemson will bring in some stud transfer or freshman, and they'll be back to being the class of the league. But hopefully in the time being, this can be our year to get a big win.He reminds me a lot of our very own TD with even more measurables. Great size, great arm but hasn't yet figured out how to play the position. Hopefully, that doesn't happen until next week.
It's gotta be rough being a Clemson fan...What are everyone's expectations for tomorrow? Are you guys expecting a close game, home team blowout, a game so boring that no one watches the second half, etc.
I fully expect Clemson to continue to look like the bad news bears with:
1. Multiple three and outs
2. An offense that runs the same 6 plays
3. Tony Elliott to look absolutely clueless when the camera pans to him in the box
4. The defense to be on the field for 40+ minutes
5. Dabo saying at halftime we need to make adjustments and then not make any adjustments
Just a few off the top of my head...
Well WE don’t have to do anything, we don’t play in the games so we can crawl, walk, run or jump or all we want.You guys are struggling but it has to be put into perspective; you are struggling by the standards of Clemson. The loss to Georgia is nothing to be ashamed of. The 2OT loss on the road to NCSt is surprising, but they are a good team and it is only surprising because it is Clemson.
Our guys can win any game left but we can also lose any game that is left. We need to get 3 more wins somehow, with more wins being gravy. Welcome gravy, for sure, but we have to walk before we can run.
I view Clemson as a gravy game but I also think we can score some points. You have had two weeks to rest up and those are weeks we could also have used. I'm always optimistic, so I expect it to be pretty close. It has the potential to be a statement game for the Orange.
vegas has been on the losing end of our scores all seasonVegas isn't dumb, unfortunately I think Clemson wins by double digits. The bye week, no Taj, and coming off two heartbreaking losses will take its toll. Cuse is going to be in a battle for 6-6 and how they are heath wise going in and out of the bye will make or break their chances. At the end of the season we will look back and once again say what if (a la 2017).
We win if:
- We can get something consistent in the run game on our end. Doesn't need to be record-setting, but we need to move the ball, even if it's not on scoring drives.
- We'll need to hit one deep ball. I know it's not Shrader's bread and butter, but we have to hit one of these once they start creeping up.
- We need to make all FGs inside of 45 yards.
- Defense has to limit big plays and probably get at least one TO.
I think we can recover from one bonehead play or one big play on Clemson's end. Anything more, I think we're toast.
I would LOVE one unforced error from Clemson (snap over the QBs head) or one surprising play from our end (Pena returning a punt).
We don't need to play perfectly to win, but we need to play very, very well. And, I think this goes without saying, Dino and the coaches need to have a good game from the sidelines.
