Hopefully this was our annual "asleep at the wheel" game that happens around this time of year. Look at the last several years (UNC last year, Cuse 18, Cuse again 17, Pitt 16, etc. etc.) It's out of our system now, we can all breathe.

Clemson sleepwalked thru a game and still won by 26 That should scare others on the schedule.


That said, sometimes Dabo gotta realize that fans paying to see them play aren't paying to see him,the staff and The Players not give their best effort,win,lose or draw.

Some of yíall seem to be new to football. Every team has an off day from time to time. Every-single-team. Most donít win by 26 on their off day either.

Best is the standard means Clemson will strive to be the best it can be in all areas. It has nothing to do with having a bad game and everything to doing with developing young men in all facets of their life.

We had a bad game just like the 2016 and 2018 teams had a bad game. This game will serve as a teaching tool just like the other championship teams. A little adversity is good for a teams growth as we learn far more from adversity than success.

Some of the players and the OC stated their opinions to the media, prior to Dabos comments, that we did not live up to our standards on Saturday. Everyone knows that we now have a great opportunity in a win to get better in practice; that’s not next level analysis. I appreciate that Dabo is always defending his guys, but to get twisted over something that is plain and obvious and has already been stated by members of his team just rings hollow.

I appreciate the fact that our standard is higher than that of other teams, including Bama.

I also appreciate the fact that we won another sleeper of a game, with a "C" at best performance, by four touchdowns and a failed 2pt play.

There were times when we stunk the field up, but we bounced back and won convincingly. Great teams do that. Every team has a bad day, quite often they don't bounce back like these guys did. We still won big and we're still undefeated. I'm sure the coaches will study the film and make necessary adjustments.

Correct, and I saw many posts by Clemson fans questioning how good Alabama actually is. Many doubted them after that game, and rightfully so.

One day in the future we are going to look back on these days when people were criticizing a 26 point win and wish we had this caliber of team. I would recommend enjoying the ride more. Dabo and team are a fantastic coaching staff and have proven over and over that they know what they are doing. Go back and look at the game by game scores of our prior championship seasons and remember we arenít perfect every week. Please stop with the negativity and enjoy a 1 point win as much as a blowout!

One can recognize that the team played poorly and still understand that Clemson is the best team in the country. It's not an either/or scenario. Pointing out the flaws doesn't mean that you don't appreciate the win.

Maybe but did not see a lot of appreciation posts. Just a lot of whining and misuse/misunderstanding of a motto

Iím thoroughly enjoying this era of Clemson football. I havenít forgotten the ineptitude of the Hatfield and West years and appreciate this coaching staff. However, I will criticize when an elite team is struggling to play that way. Iím certain the coaching staff is not withholding their views in the pursuit of excellence.

One thing I try to do is refrain from making the criticism personal or destructive. Canít say Iíve never violated that intention but I try to remain mindful of it.
