Default Danny Kanell on Clemson-Syracuse game

Danny Kanell said on the Playbook show on ESPNU Radio today that he thinks Syracuse will cover the spread vs. Clemson.

The Tigers are a 22.5-point favorite.

Well they probably will. I can see us being up 28 late and the backups give up a garbage score late. That tends to be the trend. Unless we're up 37+ going into the 4th, then i'll say they cover too.

A win is great; a comfortable win is priceless.

I don't know. The starters seemed quite perturbed last week with the late TD's and when something like that has happened in the past the Tigers have came out the next week with a better since of urgency. I think if the Tigers do get up a couple score Dabo will make it a point to get the backups in to see if they have tighten everything up. I expect the Tigers to play very well on defense this week. I don't think Clemson will shut Syracuse down just based off both teams running hurry up offenses which in turn gives each team more possessions and more chances to get yards and points.

IDK, this is potentially kind of a trap game. This is a Syracuse team that should've beaten LSU at the non real Death Valley and lost by 1 score to NCST. Against LSU, outside of the game's first play and the final couple minutes, Cuse looked pretty good..... and good enough to upset a better team that has a bad game or might be looking past them.

They probably will. We're subbing 2nd and 3rd team guys early against lesser teams. I'm sure we'll do it this game too.

All valid points but...

Cuse plays fast on O and probably wear out others Ds. We sub a lot so that shouldn't be as much of an issue for us. And I think our D giving up trash points late in games has been an issue that CBV wants to address so Cuse just might not score many points.

We'll see how much KB plays and how effective he is. If he's not 100%, then I'd imagine that we see HJ a good bit. Now his timing with WRs might not be totally on but I think he's a quick learner and we score enough to cover.

It probably comes down to how much we try to run the ball and keep TOP.

So I think we cover but not by much.

I will be happy with a final score of Clemson 35 and Syracuse 13. Tigers win, Syracuse covers the spread, and Kanell is right.
