→ Pat Forde is not a huge fan of Clemson’s Chances this Season

Bust: Clemson. Dabo Swinney has recruited well enough to survive some significant talent losses the past couple years, but the Tigers still should take a step back from last year’s 11-2 record and Orange Bowl victory. If new quarterbacks and a new kicker don’t come through, maybe a big step back.

A step back to 10-3 would be a bummer, but not terrible. I big step back would not be so fun.
