Default Would you like to see Clemson open at Notre Dame?

It would be a great way to get the nation's attention with other conferences not playing yet.

I don't particularly like the idea of playing our toughest game of the entire season out of the starting block. Not because I think we lose it in whatever week we play it, but the idea that the national media will simply ignore us after that game until the ACCCG.

When playing "war" the card game, you don't lead with your only Ace.

O-line needs time to get better.

I'd like to see it. If Clemson were to lose, and I'm not saying they would, but if they were to lose then they would have a whole season to get back in the top 5. Beat a top 3 and undefeated Notre Dame team in the ACC Championship Game, then they are in the playoff.

In any normal year, yes. But this is undiscovered territory.
I've seen reports that the CFP committee plans to do nothing different than they have in the past. I've also seen that they will change their criteria a bit. I'd like to think they stick to their "mandate", but they won't tell us what happens in that room, one way or the other.

A one loss Clemson gets jumped by a one-loss $EC team, every single undefeated team, and most likely a one-loss Little11 or Big12 team. The committee has shown several times that conference championships do not matter.

Eyes will be on Clemson until that ND game is played. Once the game is over, the media will not care what Clemson does. The longer the suspense for the game in South Bend builds, the better it is for us.

With 10 game conference schedules, I wonder how many undefeated teams we will see this year?

Is this guy credible? Clemson at ND as a Labor Day weekend opener?

Thumbs down Re: Would you like to see Clemson open at Notre Dame?

Absolutely NOOOOO!! The ACC has given Notre Dame enough for being a conference member for just one year. They should not be given an extra advantage for their first game. Don’t make Clemson's schedule more difficult on the premise of improving the image of the ACC.
