This is Clemson's first win at Auburn since 1950. Clemson had lost seven straight at Auburn before tonight.

I know Robert said this team looked focused in practices and camp, but I didn't see it tonight. It looked exactly like a team that had been reading the preseason mags about themselves.

Just a pathetic performance on offense and special teams. And stupid mistakes and penalties on D. Terrible play calling and we lucked into the W.

I think Dabo might've been reading too much of his teams hype...thinking we could get it on 4th and 4 instead of taking the easy 3 and knock auburn out for good.

It is mind boggling. Absolutely mind boggling.

Yeah we might have gotten our butts whipped if we played Houston today. That's how we should've looked (how Houston looked today).... and then some.

If we had just kneeled on the ball on third down we could have run the clock down to ten seconds and given auburn 80 yards to go with ten seconds. That's assuming you don't make the field goal. If you make a FG, it's game over.

I just don't see how you could make a much worse decision there.

Even if you miss you aren't any worse off. There's no downside here.

I just don't get the 4th and 4 call. Throw the ball. A dropped pass does not matter since you turn the ball over on downs without getting the yardage.

There's no doubt in my mind his plan was to go on 4th if Gallman had stayed in bounds and either get it and end the game or if we don't get it they'd only have about 5 seconds on their own 15 yard line.

But after the stupid move by Gallman that plan should have changed

I know im late ..I've been streaming the game from darlington but what the hell was that.. Dabo's letting them grow up early.. I'm flabbergasted at the play calling. J Johnson way to step up
We got to clean up the mental mistakes. Proud of the guys came back to get the w.


Side note***. Where was feaster at ?.

Regardless of Dabo's thought process, the probability of making that short FG is greater than that of converting 4th & 4.

The only thing I can figure is that last year's Ga. Tech/Fl. St. game was in his head.

I would have run the ball straight up the gut twice. You figure 4/5 seconds for the play to unfold and then 40 seconds between plays then we either run it out or Auburn has one play to go 80 yards.

That call by Dabo reminds me of the old Dabo. He would make calls that left you scratching your head. I agree that the team didn't play smart at times, but that play is an example of not coaching smart. Unless my kicker has a broken leg, I am going for the field goal.

On the positive side I was very impressed with the play of the front seven. The DBs still scare me and could cost us against better passing teams.

They could have kneeled down on 3rd and 4th down and left Auburn with only 10 seconds opposed to 45 seconds.

I think Dabo may have watched the Auburn Alabama game a couple years ago when Bama missed the late FG.....and Auburn ran it back....or the GT-FSU game last year....
