Clemson=No Respect?

Last year Clemson performed above expectations in my mind, shocking midwesterners with a very talented season on both sides of the ball. I knew there be explosion in their offense, but in the passing game? I had no idea Cullen Harper would throw for 27 tds and i think it was six pics? thats some great production. Especially when you have James Davis and C.J. Spiller to take oppurtunities away. The defense was elite and staved off a lot of attacks that presented themselves last season.

Lucky for Clemson they lost very little this offseason, the most notable losses being Barry Richardson OT, 2nd round pick Phillip Merling DE. Almost everyone else returns. The offense will be explosive, they will probably average about 35 points a game and the defense will allow about 14. Not to mention the weak conference they play in, this season at least. Yes the ACC has Miami, FSU, and Virginia Tech, but aside from VT they won't be anything special. Look for Clemson to take the ACC title with ease. An early hurdle with Alabama at home could set them up for some name recognition and attention.
