Hey everyone. This is my first thread on here. I was browsing the web and came across this link below. Its basically people talking smack about Troy playing Clemson this year as an opener. We all know how bad we want to beat them...i figured i would share it with y'all to get in the conversation as well. Links below (hope i did this right) Go Trojans!

We say that every year. But for some reason, this one feels different. They ended the season blown out by an in state rival and a bowl loss, as well as a losing record. We had a three game win streak and a bowl demolishment of a team we "weren't supposed to beat." I'd say the momentum is on our side. This isn't the same team that played South Carolina, and Clemson will probably look at that blowout (as well as ULM and FIU losses) and underestimate us. This is also in Troy's favor. They'll look at our defense, and won't realise we've added a lot of key JUCO transfers: Brynden Trawick (S), Angelo Hadley (S), David Whitmore (CB), Xavian Evans (DE), Corey Johnson (WR), and Montrell Conner (RB). Some guys like Barry Valcin (S) will be back from injury to add to the fire.

It just feels different than most years.

What i like about these juco transfers we are bringing in is that they have ALOT of experience in they're position (which showed during spring).... i think this is going to be a positive for our performance this year, especially on defense...which like you said may be overlooked.

Let them believe what they want to believe. They see it as an automatic win for the home team. At the worst, this is a money game for us. We have nothing to loose.

I kind of see this game as redemption for our last trip to the state of SC and think our guys will really be up. I do believe this year's Troy team will have possibly the best potential ever. Yeah, JJ will be missed but there are some fine athletes to fill the void on the O. Our defensive secondary has to show up to have a chance. I'll be there and believe we'll all walk out with our heads high.

Hey guys, just got this inquiry from Scouts and I do not care to apply for their request but thought some of you out there might find the request interesting and right down your publishing portfolio. Good luck, we need a great Troy rep. speaking up for Troy.

ear ghostrider3141@bellsouth.net (trojan3141),

Scout.com is planning to broaden its coverage and re-launch this site as part of our college network in the coming months.

With that, we are currently looking for a publisher for our Troy site.

This position is perfectly suited for someone who loves covering sports, and in particular, Troy athletics. In addition, hundreds of people make their living or have a second income by covering their local universities or professional teams on the internet.

If you are interested, please email us at info@scout.com. Tell us a bit about yourself, and why you may be the perfect fit to be the publisher of Scout's Troy Site.

If you know of any good Troy sites on the internet currently please feel free to let us know as well.

Scout hopes to install a new publisher and re-launch this site soon.

Thank you,

Thanks Trojanbrutha....i have to agree, it does seem like forever until the season kicks off. I will admit tho, i am pretty pumped and anxious for a great football season and to see what Troy brings to the table. I think we got alot going for us.

There isn't going to be very much money involved in it. Certainly not in the beginning anyway. The money will come when the subscriptions start coming in. People aren't going to subscribe to a pay site for the information they can get on TroyTrojans.com. The selling point on these kind of sites is the latest in recruiting information. Interviews with signees, write ups on players interested in the program, and anything else going on within the program.

Which would put whoever is doing it for Scout in direct competition with Drew. The upside to a site like Scout or Rivals is the publicity for the university and the players. There aren't very many schools out there that don't have an active site with one or the other anymore. I would think with Scout wanting to refresh their Troy site, there must be some demand for it.

I remain optimistic about the game. I have always been a die hard Trojan fan and always will. I, like many others, get super excited about the season every year and there is the first game that we always think we can win. I hope we can finally prove after 11 years of being in I-A football we can knock out an out of conference foe on the road for the first game. Sad thing for me, is I cant watch it on channelsurfing.net like the rest of us had. And down here, the cable company (Time Warner) does not offer ESPN 3. I have direct TV, so I hope it will be on there. As always...GO TROY!

A few FAU fans recieved one similar to this as well for the FAU scout site. It looks like SCOUT may be wanting to increase there coverage of all the 'Belt teams perhaps?

I wonder if any of the others schools that do not have active SCOUT sites got repsonses as well?

I just thought this was pretty funny...a couple Clemson fans giving there predictions for the game.....
"Now I know we have over 4 months before the season starts, but why not get the discussion started early? I think the offense will look decent, but not good. It will be the teams first game under Morris' new spread no-huddle system. I see us putting up 45 points on the Trojans. On the defensive side, even though a few key players were lost, Steele will keep them where they left off last year. Troy scores 17 because it takes the defense almost 2 quarters to start really playing. So, 45-17. Everyone's predictions?"

"I say 56-3. I have high hopes for the boys this year"

If the score is literally that bad under a coach who is just starting to run the spread which we run and our Defense is pretty familar with then God knows what the rest of the season will be like. lol.

I feel so good about this game for the Trojans I have already invited some friends of mine that are Clemson fans over to watch or listen to the game. I can understand their thinking, the only thing they know of us is that South Carolina has smacked us around like a Jr high team a couple of times. Let them keep remembering that. We have some deep talent this year and I feel really good about our offense and finally I think our defense will be back to where it should be. This game could be a big start for a big season for TROY!!

TrojanLB08, I like the prediction you quoted from the CLEMSON fan that said: "I say 56-3. I have high hopes for the boys this year", I think it will be more like '55' as in Troy is going to open a 55 gallon drum of 'you know what' on those Tigers Labor Day weekend!
We're about down to double digit days before the season kicks off. Lets all enjoy the ride with the Baseball team and then get ready for some smash mouth in September!

I'm thinking this game will be close. We aren't going to blow them out, but I don't expect us to get blown out either. We will have to play a great game, but if we do we can take this one.

I'm not going to make any kind of prediction other than we have a fair shot at winning this one.

I just find it somewhat amusing that fans of teams that we don't often play assume that just because were in the sunbelt conference that were going to suck. Basically they judge before they know. Are offense was ranked higher last year far beyond Clemsons in Rushing, Passing and points for. We have a Coach something they also don't have. They are just starting to run the spread...something that Troy pretty much "per-fects" and our Defense is also familar with which gives us an advantage. I think we have a good advantage against Clemson...are we going to win? We will see. Im anxious to see what happens. In the mean time, im proud of the baseball team for a great season! Go Trojans!

Hello,
Clemson Fan here, really looking forward to hosting y'all in a few months. I've read through this topic, and I'd like to apologize for any unsavory fans you may have encountered, we have our share. A heads up, we have a problem with USCe fans posting sometimes under Clemson sounding names to portray a bad light. We do, however have a select number of fans that take things a bit far, or out of left field altogether, as everybody else does. As for me, I am looking forward to our game, your team has a history of being very competitive, no matter who the opponent. I'd like to think we will win, as I would expect you all to believe that you will win. Because of that, I'll respectfully bow out of any predictions. I have a tailgate close to the stadium(Lot 6 if you want to look it up), and will have plenty of food and beverages, and a warm welcome to any visitors. I'll be glad in the meantime to offer any advice that you may need or find helpful if making the trip to Clemson.
Looking forward to meeting some Trojans,

We greatly benefit from this being their first game of the season their offense won't be the most pretty girl in the room. Especially the passing game.

However, Clemson with good coaching can have a nasty defense. And their Tight Ends and starting Center are absolute beast. To win this game were going to have to come up big in the passing game and the blitz is going to have to be effective.

J Massaquoi our star end is also going to have to come up big in the pass rush.

You are right we don't stand a chance. Since we don't there is no need in you attending the game. Can I have your tickets and parking pass since it won't even be close. You could save that gas money and donate it to buy all those recruits that you are buying from under other teams noses.

I see that the English courses taught at Clemson University appear to be on par with the rest of the population in Northern South Carolina, just above the 2nd grade level, or were you talking through your toothless mouth? (or is that toofless? teefless?)

I think people from Alabama can think of something better than to call out someone for using the word "yall".

Just keep cheering on your loser division 2 team & keep dreaming of that huge BCS AQ Conference win that you dream of every single year.

But quit talking **** about the team that is going to own you come september :)

Easy there poor little fellow, getting all upset because you don't know how to use the "shift key" or capitalize a proper noun (not sure you know what constitutes a noun is) or how to punctuate slang.

You come on this board with a 2010 record of 6-7 with wins over power houses N. Texas and Presbyterian College and you want to talk smack about Troy?

hey big fella, if you are so confident in an easy victory perhaps you should take your weak :censored: smack to a board that is more "worthy" of such talk. We simple Trojan fans just don't care what you have to say.

Just remember, the last time you played a team from Alabama your Tigers came up short. :rolleyes:

You are right we don't stand a chance. Since we don't there is no need in you attending the game. Can I have your tickets and parking pass since it won't even be close. You could save that gas money and donate it to buy all those recruits that you are buying from under other teams noses.

Hemi,

chances are this "gentleman" doesn't even have tickets, let alone a parking pass. He is probably like most big school fans...just picked a team early on for no affiliation reason.

To belittle someone you don't know because you think they are inferior in some way to you is as old as the playground bully in grade school. But be careful big bad bully, because sometimes the object of your ridicule knows karate, and puts the smack down on your laim butt infront of everyone.

I see Clemson did make the ESPN top 10.

http://sportstalkgolive.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/mike-bellamy-cash-179x300.jpg

9. Clemson -- In early June, Tigers recruit Mike Bellamy posted a picture on Facebook of himself posing with a huge wad of $100 bills. Hmm. Peculiar. He later claimed it was a joke. But most high school students don't have access to piles of $100 bills, even for joking purposes. And this came three years after Clemson recruit Kenneth Page put a photo on MySpace -- remember that (I mean MySpace, not the photo)? -- of himself holding a stack of cash. So either Clemson is paying its top recruits or it is recruiting players who have had wildly successful paper routes and/or lemonade stand businesses.

How they could have improved their ranking: By having recruits tweet pictures of themselves holding cash. Come on, Facebook? If you want something to go viral, Twitter is the way. Someone better check out Friendster to see if Clemson recruits are putting incriminating photos on there.

No need to apologize. I personally enjoy a little smack talk. As for the picture I lifted it from a South Carolina message board. I am planning on coming up for the game. We will be staying in Greenville. Is there any where that is a must see while at Clemson? Any restaurants you would recommend? What about parking?

Absolutely agree! Wish I could be there, timing is just all wrong! Having said that, I'm still hoping that the Clemson fan that I called out on the Tiger board 'mans up' and takes my offer, after saying that Clemson would win by 35, I asked if I could get a $1000 on that. So far, no response! Looks like it's and 'hat and cattle' thing:rollinglaugh:

Restaurants, if you're staying in Greenville, my favorite there is a place called Saskatoon, it's a Northwest Camp Style fish and wild game place, a little pricey though. Greenville does have a nice downtown atmosphere with a group of bars within walking distance of each other. Clemson has a great downtown atmosphere with all bars within walking distance also, but it'd be dificult getting back to Greenville afterwards. Be sure to hit the Esso Club in Clemson (best on Gameday), Tiger Town Tavern, and TD's. Parking on Gameday I would suggest going to the YMCA, you can google map it, it's right across the lake from the stadium, I think it's like $10/car, there's plenty of room to tailgate there, and there's a shuttle that'll take you to within a 1/10th of a mile from the stadium. The only problem with the Y is the line to get on the shuttles back after the game, however, I would suggest this as a good time to hit the Esso, as it's close to the shuttle pick up, and let the line die down. Also, as this is the first game of the year, we have our annual "First Friday Parade", if you have kids and will be in town Friday afternoon, the kids may enjoy that.

Auburn: W 27-20 In arematch of the best game from last year, Boyd leads a last minute drive, capped with a Hopkins TD.
FSU: W 17-13 The Seminoles make a field goal late, but then can't recover the onside kick necessary to give them a chance at the win.
VT: L 35-20 The tigers can't shake their woes against the Hokies as they put on the brakes late to make it look more respectable.
BC: W 38-24 The Tigers improve to 3-1 in the past four years as Boston College fails on a late- rally attempt.

If your Death Valley is as over-rated as the other Death Valley, then TMTDM shouldn't have a problem being competitive and don't worry about Allbarn, they will be trying to copy TMTDM wins in about 3-4 years after the NCAA/FBI take care of them ...speaking of death, I can only make the game in spirit as I have been room temperature for over 25 years.

9. Clemson -- In early June, Tigers recruit Mike Bellamy posted a picture on Facebook of himself posing with a huge wad of $100 bills. Hmm. Peculiar. He later claimed it was a joke. But most high school students don't have access to piles of $100 bills, even for joking purposes. And this came three years after Clemson recruit Kenneth Page put a photo on MySpace -- remember that (I mean MySpace, not the photo)? -- of himself holding a stack of cash. So either Clemson is paying its top recruits or it is recruiting players who have had wildly successful paper routes and/or lemonade stand businesses.

How they could have improved their ranking: By having recruits tweet pictures of themselves holding cash. Come on, Facebook? If you want something to go viral, Twitter is the way. Someone better check out Friendster to see if Clemson recruits are putting incriminating photos on there.

Not to really start a pissing match here, but these are kids. I sometimes have to remind myself that I was 17 once also.

...I've grown weary with this excuse. These are near-adults, not kids. There are no 6 or 7 year olds entering college. They may make poor choices and choose the wrong, but they DO know right from wrong, just like you and the rest of us did (unless one is dishonest with one's self). Are there real and difficult temptations: YES. Do they have a choice to do the right thing: YES YES. Just as we all do every day of our lives. And we all make good and bad ones everyday but that is NO EXCUSE for slacking off and sloppy living.

There is an easy way to avoid doing dumb stuff. Choosing NOT to do it. Personal responsibility does not begin when you are handed a college diploma. It is highly unfortunate that it isn't expected of those entering college anymore. We've gotten so laxidasical with personal discipline and responsibility that we TOO EASILY excuse sloppy living, football ethics or otherwise. Now I have plenty of grace for those who do wrong because I are one as you who are reading this are. But we've got to draw the line and quit expecting these 18+ year olds to be emotionally stunted with the maturity of a 6 year old. They are living up to that expectation. We should expect something different for them to live up to.

I have no problem with anything you said here. I am not excusing anything, but I see no laws being broken, just poor taste. He was not on campus when this incident occurred, yet the message got to him that this was unacceptable, and he retracted it and apologized publicly. I would imagine that there is more to the message now that he is on campus. Such poor taste is an unfavorable reflection of our University, and I trust that he will learn from that indiscretion.

If it makes you feel better we have several that look down their noses at our on players when they screw up. 18-22 year olds are not normally the best decision makers in the world. If a player at Troy screws up and the coaches decide to give him another chance I support their decision. That is part of their jobs. They understand these kids come from all kinds of different backgrounds and homes. Some can't handle the freedom when they first arrive on campus. No need to cast them into the depths of hell for screwing up.

Now, having cleared the air, feel free to bring some smack back at us here on the "smack board". If you need help finding some ask around on pretty much any other Sun Belt message board. If you want to have a serious conversation about the game flip over to the football board. Most of all let's have fun until the season starts.

This game won't be any different. There's no way that we will lose to that bunch. Look what happened to them when they played SCar. The only reason it might be "competetive" would be because we don't want to show anything to future opponents and, we don't want to risk injury to players on our 2-deep. This exhibition game will be a slam dunk for the Tigers.

Yeah, yeah.....we've heard it all before. The only thing that will save Clemson from getting beat by Troy, is the same thing that kept FSU from getting beat by Troy.....the AWFUL ACC officials. Phantom holding calls against Troy during the crucial game-winning drive, no-calls when the opposing team flagrantly fouls a Troy player on either offense or defense.

Now, SEC home-cooking is bad, but ACC home-cooking is awful, and it's obvious. But I will give the ACC credit....until last year, it was the worst I had ever seen, but the UAB game last year was so horrid, that, at least for that one CUSA crew, I've never seen worse. So, the ACC has at least risen from the cellar in terms of horrible officiating.

I have no problem with anything you said here. I am not excusing anything, but I see no laws being broken, just poor taste. He was not on campus when this incident occurred, yet the message got to him that this was unacceptable, and he retracted it and apologized publicly. I would imagine that there is more to the message now that he is on campus. Such poor taste is an unfavorable reflection of our University, and I trust that he will learn from that indiscretion. I just kind of take issue when stones are cast at teenagers/kids/young adults, choose your term.

I take issue when 17 - 18 year old men are excused for stupid behavior because they are athelets. I take issue when 17 - 18 year old men who act like 13 year old kids . If I was his father I would have pulled him aside , put a boot on his butt and asked him. "WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING". I see 17 - 18 year old men all the time in the airport while I travel and they honor their uniforms and country by behaving like adults. This young man has a gift and a great oppurtunity .... so he goes out and makes a total ass of himself.

I do hope he has learned something from his ignorant facebook post and realizes that his actions reflect on the University that gave him such a great oppurtunity:mad:

Two of us for certain. Thanks for all your help already.

As for the other part, I apologize for some of the people that like to take smack talk in a far to serious direction. How a group of young adults act when they are with their buddies is totally different than how they act in a public enviroment. For that matter 40 year old men act drastically different in their garage with the guys than when they are at a business meeting.

OK, I'll play. 09', and I wouldn't trade the number of conference championships Clemson has for sc's "played in the championship game last year". SC is 4 games over .500 lifetime in football, and that was the closest they've ever come to any form of a championship. Excuses aren't worth the breath they take, but we lost to AU at AU by a bad snap on a PAT in OT, how close was sc to winning? And what difference does it make in the L? Last year marked the first time in over 40 years that sc has beaten us in consecutive years. Yeah, they're great.

I look forward to my first trip to Death Valley - heard nothing but great things about Clemson.

One other reason I mentioned earlier that we could score 40 is because you guys are running the spread and am guessing with some hurry up, no huddle stuff. I expect you guys to score quite a bit which gives us more opportunity to score as well. I think it will be a really fun game to watch.

Go Troy!

noogatiger16
07-17-2011, 11:03 AM
Our defense has been our stronger unit for the past couple of years Under Kevin Steele, that, combined with the fact that we have had 40 hung on us twice in the last six years leads me to conclusion that y'all should not. We do have a number of new starters this year, but they all have game experience, and all are very talented. It is an interesting point you bring up about the spread and hurry up/no huddle. It is somehwat of a double edged sword giving the opposition more opportunities. Being the first game of the year, there will be some adjustment. I would not be surprised to see Troy in the 20s, slightly surprised and a little dissappointed to see 30s, but unacceptable to give up 40+. I have no idea what to expect from our offense, as I was not able to tell much from the spring game. I know the principles of Chad Morris' offense, and they all sound good, but it's his first year, and all coaches are good at "selling" their system. We also have a first year starter at QB, only one proven returning WR, but with a very experienced Line, and proven returner at RB. That is a recipe for highs/lows and instability at offense. I have believed since Alabama killed us in the 08 opener that the Line is the most important piece of the puzzle, and our line should be a strong point this year. I try to temper my expectations on the variables we have, and the first year OC/first year QB combo is a very fluid condition.
Glad y'all are looking forward to the trip, whatever I can do to make it better I'll do.

Auburn, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Iowa St., Mississippi St, UCLA, Oregon St., et el of South Carolina!

If you know anything at all about the above schools (and most of you know about Alabama/Auburn) you understand exactly what I am talking about.

What is really, really funny about Clemson is that South Carolina has never, ever won anything in football. Last year's SEC East division was a first! At least Danny Ford got Clemson to the forefront. NOW, make no mistake, he was the biggest cheater outside of professional wrestling the south has ever seen.

So according to them South Carolina is going to have 750+ yards of offense and 7 touchdowns. And Troy will have a field goal at the end of the game because they will be nice and allow it with their backups.

And someone said their running back will rush for 200 yards. Our defense may not have been the best last year but 7 touchdowns with a new offense and quarterback and the offense is the SPREAD.

I can understand being a homer but a lot of Clemson fans are very ignorant not all but I have noticed on other sites also. I'm a Troy fan and even ill say Troy has a 30% chance of winning this game but 7 touchdowns seriously?

Clemson: There are several positions freshmen will have a legitimate chance to earn playing time at this summer, starting with wide receiver. "We need some help there," Dabo Swinney said. He also said the team needs immediate help at linebacker, and running back Mike Bellamy will "really spice things up for us." The defensive line is another area of opportunity and possibly one in the secondary. Clemson redshirted 15 players last year and will use 12 to 13 freshmen this fall.

On a serious note. If this board ever becomes obsessed with another team the way Clemson is with South Carolina, I believe that it will be time to take the board down.

A few stats on TROY [1]
Posted: Jul 29, 2011 3:53 PM
Reply

How good is Troy? Heres a peek from Last Year:

They had 21 TDs Rushing vs opponents 26 (and 2059 yards vs opponents 2148 yards)
They had 33 TDs Passing vs opponents 23 (and 3836 yards vs opponents 3180 yards)

Thats ~ 3:2 Passing to Rushing (and ~ 2:1 yardage)

They have a SO QB that scored ZERO TDs rushing, but 28 Passing TDs, with the backup scoring 2 and 3 SR WRs scoring the other 3. Interesting is: EVERYONE THAT CAUGHT A PASS FOR TROY GRADUATED (unless their 2 QBs caught a pass). EVERYONE!!

They lost 2 to graduation that accounted for 9 of their 21 Rushing TDs. Their remaining best 3 RBs are now JRs and accounted for 12 TDs Rushing. They lost 42% of their Rushing Offense.

They had 1 guy return a KO for a TD, and a Punt for a TD and he graduated. Opponents returned 2 Punts for TDs and no KOs for TD.

They had 14 INTs none for TD. The only guy graduating only had 1 INT. Opponents had 2 INTs for TD.

They had 39 sacks for 268 yards.

They completed 3 2pt conversions (2 WR and 1 QB). Not sure how many attempts at this.

They went 8-5 last year, losing to #13 Ok. State by only 3. #22 SC and un-ranked FlIntl were the only teams to beat them badly.

I dont see where theyre going to generate their O as I expect them to be primarily a Rushing team this year. They seem to prefer Passing, as Passing carried them all year.

Their secondary looks to be strong, so passing might be tough against them.

So Offensively, Passing was their strength, and Defensively, they defended Passing well.

They probably wont hurt us much in the Return game since their main returner is gone. They shouldnt hurt us much thru the air as all of their receivers are gone. Their secondary will be strong again, as almost everyone returns.

Considering how well they played Oklahoma State (11-3) last year, I expect Troy to be ready to bring it on 9/3.

On a serious note. If this board ever becomes obsessed with another team the way Clemson is with South Carolina, I believe that it will be time to take the board down. That is an embarrassment to people over there that are donors/season ticket holders. You can't tell if they are Clemson fans or just South Carolina haters.

OK, kind of funny. Go to the AU board and check out the UA obsession, or vice versa. If you guys are looking for a barometer of the fans, I'd rather you use another venue than Tardnet. I'm a member of the scout site, and usually only ever visit the private board, it weeds most (not all) of the trash out. Now, on the hatred of USuCk, I'd say I rank about a 13 on a scale of 10. I think the head to head is at about 60ish to maybe 20 in Clemson's favor. They have just crested above the 500 mark all time wins losses this past year. Have made 1 conference championship appearance, and I'd say an appearance is all they made in said championship. 0 conferenece champs, 0 Nat Champs, ~5 bowl games lifetime, <3 bowl wins lifetime, and less class than your average post tornado trailer park interviewee. I do not go to columbia for anything, and find being a fan of cocks to be a tragic character flaw. It's generally best that I don't engage the unwashed, a personal rule that has worked out well for me as at some point, getting into fights has to be grown out of. Now, on a serious note, back to Clemson vs Troy, I'm gonna throw out a guess at the final score, 38-24 Clemson, 21-14 at the half, with Clemson separating a little bit in the second half. Thoughts?

That may be a fair assessment, but I am not seeing Clemson shut the O of TROY down like that. It is something that only happened with a few teams last season, most notably USCe. I am pretty certain that our QB, with a healthy corps of receivers (and the unknown RBs we have) are going to churn out more than 24 pts. It's the preseason and I could be as wrong as two left shoes, but one thing I do know is that you may be putting a little more stock into your defense versus us putting too much stock into our offense. This is a game that the TROY football players will be up for...we may turn the lights out in death valley when we finish celebrating on the 3rd.

I agree with you. They act like children over there and its getting worse. The good thing about it is that they only represent a small group of clemson fans. I assure you, that the whole fan base doesn't act like that. Most of them on tnet preaches class and respect but in return they don't act it. I have dropped my account with tnet because of the way they are acting.:paperbag: I applaud you and the rest of Troy fans on this board for standing up for Troy and the loyalty you have for Troy. Although I am not a Troy student anymore, I still support Troy and maybe one day I will return back to the school. My time being associated with the school, I learned a lot about the football team and I will admit that Clemson fans shouldn't take Troy lightly. Will Troy win? My opinion is no. But do I think they have a chance to pull the upset? Yes without a doubt. With a month left until football season....I find myself pulling and rooting for Troy to pull that upset.

Clemson should be in the top half of the ACC, but I would say they are border lined between the middle and top. Clemson pulls in a lot of talent every year, but they haven't been able to get the job done. 2009 was the closest by reaching the title game but since their last conference title....Maryland and Wake has won conference titles. The best bowl game Clemson has played in since their last conference title is the Gator bowl.

Top:
VT (0-2 against VT since joining the ACC)
FSU (5-5 against the Noles since 2001)
GT (Clemson has struggled against GT and haven't won in ATL in a while. 10-11 against GT since 1991 and 1-4 against them in the last 5 years)
BC (4-2 against Clemson since joining the ACC)
Middle:
Miami (2-2 against the U since joining ACC. Might be slightly better that Miami)
Clemson
Maryland (4-6 against the Terps since 2001)
NC State (7-0 against State since 2004. Only team that Clemson has truly dominated)
Bottom:
UNC (Only had one good season in the last few years. 3-2 against UNC since 2001. Should have won that game last year.)
Wake ( 7-3 against Wake since 2001)
UVA (3-3 against UVA since 2001)
Duke (6-1 against Duke since 2001)

Good point but Wake and Duke may not be able to win the Sunbelt. The ACC has some not so good teams year in year out. The SEC has Vandy, Ole Miss and Miss State even though the last two are much better than Wake and Duke. Miss. State is up and coming! The question is for Clemson, how do they perform against the best in the ACC if they are going to anoint themselves as "consistent contenders". Being realistic, they will get a good bowl game if they win 6 games each year. True with all the major conferences. If Clemson can beat their OOC teams they only have 3 games to win to get into a good bowl. They might just find winning that first game a little tougher than they planned!

I don't see anyone disparaging Clemson here. We know we will have a quality opponent when we go up there. It would be nice however to think ya'll felt the same. I will say we have a lot to prove in OOC games and hopefully this group of young men are up to the task because that is out next road block to progress. It would be nice if larger, more well known schools would not trash their OOC opponents. There is absolutly a sense of superiority amoung you folks. If that reality hurts your feelings so be it. Clemson is a beautiful school and one of my good friends graduated from there and we have some great give and take about athletics. He is not a big fan of Jabo though so I guess that helps some. You have a good athletic program. Great....I am not sure. Some years in the past you have had a great one but be careful not to make yourselves more than you are just yet. You may be great this year but you do it with your play not your mouth. The ACC is not on the same level as the SEC or some other major conferences. FSU was a great team who could compete with anyone and probably will be again but Maryland, Wake, Duke, NC State....no way! We hope to make your first game against us a miserable experience for ya'll. I for one don't know who will win. We have a lot of new talent and we have a lot to prove to ourselves. We recognize your capabilities but ya'll just might be surprised how good Troy can be or maybe how difficult running the spread with a fast pace offense can be for a school just starting it (Clemson). We have ran it for years so you won't slip up on us in that respect. We love our Trojans as much as you do your Tigers so take a deep breath, enjoy the smack and saddle up 'cause the Trojans are coming to "Death Valley" and it might just not be as easy as ya'll think. There might just be an awakening!! The question to be decided is for WHOM! Go Trojans!!!!!!!

Honest question doesn't consistent mean more than once or twice? Not even knocking Clemson because I know if we suddenly played in the ACC we wouldn't win every year.

But you seriously can't have Clemson in the top four man....Your buying to much into all the preseason articles that have picked Clemson to win the ACC like the last six years.

Like in 2008 when Clemson went 7-6 with wins over (The Citadel, Duke, Virginia, and a few ACC teams that had 6 or 7 wins) Then going 6-7 last season. I think what others were pointing out is just because you have 5 star players it doesn't anoint you as a elite team. Clemson is a young team and Troy is very experienced at some positions. Your fan base can't be offended by us saying this won't be a easy win.

I think being put off by being called a "middle of the pack" ACC school is a personal problem. The reality of it is that you ARE a middle of the pack ACC school. In the last 10 years you average 6.9 wins a year with no ACC Championshipships and 1 appearance in the ACC Championship game. This is "middle of the pack."

We are a Sunbelt team and we have to face the fact we will more than likely never win a D1 National Championship and will probably never get an opportunity to play in a BCS game. We KNOW this about ourselves, you seem to be delusional about your status. With Florida State, Virginia Tech and Miami being the top of the conference for the past 10 years and Duke holding the cellar position it basically relegates the rest of the ACC as a "middle of the pack" teams.

Face it, you are a medium sized fish in a pond with some big fish and you have done well for yourselves and that is nothing to be mad about. We are a medium fish in a pond of minnows and we do what we are supposed to do to the minnows.

We could beat Duke Wake or UVA this year ( Especially at Troy). Clemson fans just don't realize what kind of athletes we have year in and year out , the SEC schools that play us are aware.

Quit kid yourself or check into hospital for treatment. $EC schools really afraid to play us, that why they always schedule TMTDM.

Florida State, after what we nearly did in 07 we wont be playing them for a long while.....Oklahoma State, after beating them badly one year and nearly doing it last year dont look to have them on the schedule anytime soon......and of Course Bama and Aub!

FWIW, Clemson has this freshman in their starting lineup:

http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/recruiting/player-Mike-Bellamy-101255 (4th String, also FR 5-Star)

here's a depth chart comparion:

Looking forward to the game Saturday. We're definitely not taking you guys lightly as most of you think. We'll be breaking in some young studs at WR and LB and have our fair share of question marks heading into this first game. The only true freshman that will start, is 5 star WR Sammy Watkins. He's the first true freshman to start at Clemson since Athony Simmons years ago...which speaks volumes. Look for DeAndre "Nuke" Hopkins at WR (Freshman All-ACC) to be called on a good bit, he's young but is going to be a monster.

Our OL and RB will be our strength this year. If we run early and have success - opening up the passing game, it may be a long day for you all. RB Andre Ellington is the real deal. :bounce012:

The Clemson D should be just as good if not better than last years (18th in the nation). The only drop off may possibly be in the secondary only due to inexperience, not talent.

My prediction is a tight game all the way through the 1st half. Clemson pulls away in a nail biter early in the 4th. Clemson 28 Troy 21

Of course I hope we blow y'all out, but my gut feeling is that it will be too close for comfort...

Hoping for great weather & an injury free game. Go Tigers!

It's more than just skill....... It's heart and determination. Clemson is alot more talented, but they don't have the passion Troy will bring.... because you see, Clemson knows how good they are, they're the team that's talented and slated to blow the underdog out.... the prime reason Troy gives all they've got. To prove the world wrong, to have the Big Boy lights shine down on them. To show that just because they didn't have an ESPN150 sign on their report card, they can overcome adversity.

It's intersting that you don't think Clemson won't have the passion, heart, and determination needed to win this game. I beg to differ, especially with this being our opener and first home game. We're just as amped for college football as anyone out there.

Throw that in with close to 15 True Freshman and 14 Redshirt Freshman on the depth chart, nearly all in the 2-deep - should make for a lot of players out to prove a point. We'll be playing with a major chip on our shoulder, because rightfully so, Clemson is getting no respect this year. We're out to prove a point - just like you all are.

That could be good or bad. Trying to hard to prove a point can lead to mistakes. Both teams will have a great deal of youth on the field saturday. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Swinney was raised in Pelham, Alabama, and attended the University of Alabama, where he joined the Crimson Tide football program as a walk-on wide receiver in 1989. Swinney earned a scholarship and lettered on three teams (19901992), including the Crimson Tide's 1992 National Championship team. During his time as an undergraduate at Alabama, he was twice named an Academic All-SEC and SEC Scholar Athlete Honor Roll member. He received his degree in commerce & business administration in 1993.

I believe Clemson is a 16 point favorite (last I heard). I think the game will be closer than that. A lot of Tiger fans are predicting a win by 20-30 points, but I don't see it. Too many questions with a new offense and a lot of new faces. In my opinion...the key is the first half. Clemson the last few years hasn't been a strong second half team (look at the game vs Auburn, UNC, Miami last year). If Troy can cause turnovers and either be tied or have a touchdown lead at the half...I like the chances of the upset. I'm calling for the upset.:thumb:

TigerLight
09-02-2011, 10:58 AM
Clemson isn't taking Troy lightly at all... you'll have our full undivided attention this Saturday. We play Wofford next week for crying out loud - a true cupcake. Also, did you see our record last year? Totally unacceptable at Clemson... we're expecting a great competative game on both sides from you guys. It's my understanding you lost a ton at WR but have a solid RB and great QB. I think your DL may be a very suspect against our veteran OL. I'm expecting big things from our running game early on, which should open up the passing game if things are in our favor.

We're breaking in a new scheme on offesne - Chad Morris, so it will be a crazy packed house in Death Valley. Everyone is excited about the new offense... I'll be the first to tell you that Andre Ellington is a blazer, running under 4.4 at times and he's going to get his regardless of which team we play - he's that good. WR DeAndres Hopkins is a stud and should do big things this year. Our biggest question mark is can QB Tajh Boyd live up to the hype at Clemson? He was recruited by everyone under the sun out of highschool, so he has the talent - now it's just a matter of producing. He's getting his shot Saturday at 3:30.

The Clemson defense will be solid as usual. We lost 1 DE and 1 DL, but we're very experienced in the 2 deep on the DL, will be very little if any drop off. I honestly think DE Malaichi Goodman taking over for Bowers will be better at DE. Our secondary is talented but the 2 deep is inexperienced - starters are fine.

You're definitely not being overlooked, trust me when I say that...

Go Tigers! I'm pumped up - spot the ball!

We have one or two of those but we ignore them...bet Clemson fans ignore you as well. If you think you will be good this year, think again. You might beat Auburn and a few others but you are along way from contention. Maybe with your young kids you will get there and then you can puff up and make an jerk out of yourself real often!

You know there's a real easy way to make these guys go away. But instead we fuel them with our "OH YEAH!?!? WELL I'LL TELL YOU WHAT MISTER!" Do you honestly think this guy is self aware enough to think "you know what, you're right, I had never thought about it like that. Man, I feel bad now." ? Not going to happen. The only thing that ever happens when we criticize the terrible behavior of others is they get defensive and pissed off, every single time and we end up wasting pages of message board space trying to prove our point. The best way to get rid of them is to smile, wave, say have a good day, and move on.

As much as I hate to admit it, not sure it is going to happen anytime soon. I have to admit, we are not as bad as the scored indicated IMO.

The reality of the whole deal is - take a Clemson for example - 80,000 seats a game vs. Troy - 30,000 seats a game. Clemson graduates say 12,000 a year - Troy graduates say 5,000 a year.

Now, start thinking $$$ - when you have a budget two or three times less than your opponent, it sucks. What could Troy do with twice as much money as we operate on now.

Don't get me wrong, I think we overachieve in many ways. I just think at the end of the day - we have got to have more $$$ coming to our program.

Now, if Clemson is so bad ass - come on down to Troy and play us. I welcome the opportunity!
