Now I get it Clemson has not played a single team this season still ranked in the Associated Press poll, and its strength of schedule is ranked No. 62 in the country. By comparison, No. 1 LSU, No. 2 Ohio State and No. 4 Oklahoma all have schedules inside the top 30. But this is a team who hasn’t lost in 28 games and absolutely crushed the Crimson Tide in last years National Championship game 44-16
Now Why is Dabo Swinney making a case for getting on the Mt. Rushmore of college coaches?!?! Look at his body of work and what he has done with a program that was just mediocre before he took the helm. This guy is one of the best motivators in the game to get his teams ready for battle and here is an excerpt of him talking to his team after finding out they are the 3 seed “We started the season No. 1, went undefeated in the regular season and finished third,”. “OK, so that’s history, first time that’s happened. No. 1. So congratulations on that. Means nothing”. This guy is a master motivator and making a case to be on the MT. Rushmore of coaches in the college game.
Swinney has a chance to prove how good his Tigers are later this month against Ohio State. If they really are as good as he says they are, it will show against the Buckeyes in Arizona.
