And this is what Cowherd had to say to Klatt

I love the "below expectations" narrative.
1. 1 team all year has scored more than 14 points against us. (only 32 of 74 points scored against us this year have come against 1st team defense, 20 in one game.
2. Ave margin of victory is 27 pts per game against 5 power 5 teams and 1 non power 5
3. Numbers include fact that 1st teams (off and def) both usually resting early into the third quarter, in one game early in 2nd)
4. one of , I think, 3 or 4 teams in top 10 nationally in offensive and defensive efficiency.

Sure Trevor has thrown some picks and we struggled in UNC game, but some in the media pushing that Clemson doesn't belong is bizarre. Klatt has his agenda just like Finebaum. Bottom line is we will be in playoff if we go undefeated, regardless of what Alabama, LSU, OSU, Okla, Wisc do.

Remember, 1 week ago all these jack legs had UGA ranked higher than us.

Oklahoma, Alabama, LSU, Wisconsin, and Ohio State are not all going undefeated. At this point it is possible that we could end up with four undefeated conference champions. It hasn't happened so far in the playoff era, but it is possible.

ACC - Clemson
Big 10 - Ohio State, Wisconsin, or Penn State
Big 8 - Oklahoma
SEC - Alabama or LSU

If that is the case, then it means all the other teams presently in the top 10 will have either one or two losses. Conference champion is a criteria for selecting a team for the playoff. I just don't see the committee selecting a one-loss team over an undefeated conference champion.

The Tigers just need to stay laser focused, prepare for every game as if it is a championship game, and then play to their potential.
