    Good game at times and very ugly at other times. Nice win for Clemson.

    The question is not how far. The question is, do you possess the constitution, the depth of faith, to go as far as is needed?

    Both teams looked equally horrible at times and great at other times. The best ACC game I've seen in a while...

    Caught the end of the game, last quarter and it was a pretty good ball game.

    How is Florida State ranked to start the year every year? They have not been that good of a team lately, and dont see how they deserved to get ranked to start this year, just because they got a new offensive coordinator...

    Is FSU still a powerhouse program?

    Clemson has some serious speed. If they cut down on mistakes they could have a good year.

    I agree on Clemson's speed! They flat out made Florida State look like a bottom tier NCAA team the first quarter and a half! Their two RB's are scary good! Davis had some of the better runs I've seen in awhile and they are fun to watch! FSU's offense was atrocious and that's putting it nice! In the end special teams got FSU back in the game and they almost pulled it off after being down big! I wonder if Bowden is close to getting out of it too? Amatto, Fischer etc didn't help much tonight.

    Weatherford has got to learn how to get rid of the ball if FSU is going to be successful. He takes way too long on each play. I thought Antone Smith looked real good for FSU. Our run defense wasn't too great, though.

    FSU played with no heart. Clemson was ready to win before they even hit the field you could tell while they were standing by the rock. It was a ugly game though. Both teams played a half of football. It's still early and it can be fixed; I just don't see FSU doing good at all this year. They had two Freshman starting on the oline, that is never a good thing. I give Weatherford 2 weeks to get his act together and then I put in Xavier Lee, he might be able to pull something out of his hat. Clemson probably won't win the Acc but they will give Georgia Tech and Va. Tech a run for their money.

    Clemson has outstanding speed and quickness is the understatment of the year. Very impressive performance by the Tigers, especially early. Imo FSU will only get better with each game. The Noles have essentially a new coaching staff, new systems and it will take time. I really believe that the Noles will be a very good team by seasons end.

    They can only get better after last night. As someone stated in the other thread last night if they can't win with this coaching staff, they might have fired the wrong coaches last season.
