bretticus33 5 Clemson has a top 10 defense with a terrible offense. Biggest issues stem from the QB situation where they don't seem to have any good options. Neither DJU or Klubnik look like they should be leading a top 10 team.

Our-Gardian-Angel 5 Clemson feels a bit rough around the edges yet, but they're obviously really talented and top 5 still feels right given the chaos across the country. The upcoming games against Wake Forest and NC State later this month should be excellent tests. (Week 2: Clemson 35, Furman 12; Record: 2-0)

MWiatrak2077 6 Yeah, I don't even know what to say. This does not at all resemble the Clemson of 2015-2020. This week they beat FCS Furman by a 35-12 margin, losing the spread by nearly 23 points. The numbers say D.J. Uiagalelei finally had a decent game, with a statline of 2 TDs, 1 INT, 21/27, 231 yards, 8.6 Y/A. A thoroughly decent 28-9 halftime score led to just 3 second-half points in a dismal performance from the Clemson first string. I'm not convinced that Clemson isn't a contender, or that they can't fix their issues, although, they certainly haven't done anything to inspire confidence. D.J. had a decent statistical game, but Furman aren't exactly worldbeaters, - being an FCS team, who finished 6-5 last year, and allowed more points than Clemson scored this week in 4 games last year. It feels like Clemson's ACC title chances are slowly dimming away, especially with the rise of Miami/NCSU/Pitt, - let alone their playoff chances. I can't comment too much on Clemson, because I am not an avid watcher, however, from an outsiders perspective, I see an incredibly talented defense wasted by a severely subpar offense, - mostly vitiated by a mediocre starting QB. As I see it now, a presumed title contender will slip into the teens as the season progresses, unless Dabo makes serious changes to his offense.

ShamusJohnson13 7 That was a game. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Dynasty Clemson score more than 35 in that one, right? A 23 point win isn't bad, but not exactly title material when playing a mediocre FCS school, especially when Georgia is blowing theirs out of the water a couple hundred miles away. This Clemson squad is absolutely going to drop at least one conference game, and might actually be vulnerable to a South Carolina school that, while middling, is better than previous SCAR Squads.

Due_Connection179 9 The only thing I can give this team is it's defense. They are elite, but they are overworked and it will come back to bite them. Their offense is below average and only managed 35 pts on Furman. I expect them to lose to Wake Forest in two weeks, but until that happens I will go with track record of winning even with a below average offense.
