9-3: (23)Clemson 30, South Carolina ZERO

The Clemson Tigers took care of business Saturday in Williams Brice in the return of the annual rivalry game with South Carolina, coasting to a 30-0 victory that felt over from the get-go. In this ep we review a solid offensive performance that leaned heavily on the ground game, and the masterful job by what could be the last Brent Venables-led defense at Clemson. The Tigers now sit at 9-3 and #20 in the country as they await their bowl game destination and opponent, and for the coaching...


8-3: Clemson 48, (10)Wake Forest 27

The Clemson Tigers may be down, but they served noticed to the ACC on Saturday that they remain the gold standard in the conference with a comanding 48-27 victoy over #10 Wake Forest. In this ep we discuss another dominating performance by the defense, and one that was complimtented with an offense that finally appeared to be able to score at will. We wrap with a look ahead to the rivary game with South Carolina and an exciting weekend of ACC football (we know, that sounds weird). Enjoy and...


7-3: Clemson 44, UConn 7; Wake Forest Preview

The Clemson Tigers stumbled to a 44-7 victory over UConn in Death Valley on Saturday, emptying the bench more out of necessity than dominance as the injuries continued to pile up. In this ep we touch on the UConn game, then look ahead to what Clemson will need to do to beat Wake Forest as they cling onto hopes of an ACC Championship Game appearance. Enjoy and Go Tigers!!!


6-3: Clemson 30, Louisville 24

The Clemson Tigers pulled off their biggest win of the season in Bourbon Country on Saturday as they came from behind for the second week in a row in defeating the Louisville Cardinals 30-24. In this ep, we discuss an offense that continued to show progress in posting their highest point total in an FBS game this season, and a defense that had trouble with a (healthy) Malik Cunningham, but made an incredible goal line stand to seal the victory for the Tigers. At 6-3, Clemson is now bowl...


5-3: Clemson 30(!), FSU 20

The Clemson Tigers avoided snatching defeat from the jaws of victory on Saturday in Death Valley, as the offense was able to put together a 4th quarter, game winning drive in what was ultimately a 30-20 over the Florida State Seminoles. In this ep we reflect on an ugly, yet deceivingly improved offensive performance that was overshadowed by 3 missed field goals, while the defense continued to hold serve, limiting FSU to under 300 yards of total offense while posting 6 sacks and 10 TFL’s. At...


4-3: #23 Pitt 27, Clemson 17

The Clemson Tigers continued their rapid descent from the top of the mountain on Saturday in a 27-17 loss to the #23 Pitt Panthers. The offense once again failed to crack the 20’s in regulation against an FBS opponent, and the defense was worn down in what is already a season to forget, and one that’s only barely halfway over. For the first time in a long time there’s no joy in Daboville, and while there will certainly be brighter days ahead, remembering what it’s like to suck, well, sucks....


Mid-season Quacking Tiger Interview

We are joined by Quacking Tiger ( of STS fame to discuss Clemson Football at the 2021 season midpoint. Enjoy the show!


4-2: Clemson 17, Syracuse 14

The Clemson Tigers narrowly escaped defeat in the Carrier Dome on Friday night, improving to 4-2 with a 17-14 win over Syracuse. It was a familiar story storyline in this 2021 season, as the defense (and special teams) once again bailed out an offense that continues to struggle to score. And though there were some hidden bright spots on offense, Clemson fans will need to remain content with another close win for now. Enjoy and Go Tigers!!!


3-2: (25)Clemson 19, B.C. 13

For the first time since Hunter Renfrow walked on the Clemson football team, the Tigers are unranked after clawing their way to a 19-13 victory over Boston College on Saturday night in the Valley. And though there were some bright spots in this game, they were largely overshadowed by the fact that it wasn’t pretty, and the attrition is mounting. In this ep we focus on these aspects of both the offense and the defense, discuss the increased reliance on special teams, and wrap with our...


2-2: N.C. State 27, (9)Clemson 21 (OT)

The wheels have come off for the Clemson football team as an ugly, 27-21 OT loss to N.C. State in Raleigh on Saturday drops the Tigers to 2-2 for the first time in 7 years. In this ep we discuss the structural issues plaguing this team, focusing primarily on an offense that has yet to put up more than 14 points in regulation against an FBS opponent. But though there have been brighter days in Tigertown, we posit that this is not quite yet the end of an era, though it appears much more than...


2-1: (6)Clemson 14, G.T. 8

The Clemson Tigers offense continues to sputter in a 14-8 win over Georgia Tech that looked like something from the 1940's. However the defense continues to dominate, standing as the lone bright spot for this team 3 games into the season. In this ep we primarily focus on the offense's struggles and what it may take to right the ship. Enjoy and Go Tigers!!!


1-1: (6)Clemson 49, S.C. State 3

Coming off of their first opening game loss in 7 years (also to Georgia), the #6 Clemson Tigers righted the ship in Death Valley on Saturday with a 49-3 victory over the S.C. State Bulldogs. In this ep we recap both this and the Georgia games (2:35), looking for signs of improvement for an offense that is still trying to find it’s identity (30:49), while also searching for the right words to describe how dominant the 2021 version of Brent Venables’ defense projects to be (1:05:34). We also...

College football is back in full for the 2021 season as the Clemson Tigers eye their seventh consecutive ACC Championship and College Football Playoff appearance. In our annual season preview show, we discuss the outlook for a team that is talentend if yet unproven on offense, and one that has all the pieces on the defensive side of the ball to be one of the most dominant in the Venables era. It's been a busy offseason off the field, but now it's time to spot the damn ball...Enjoy and Go...
