    I have been following college football since the infamous 1979 season.

    Where would you put Clemson in top ten since 1980?

    1. 95 Nebraska
    2. 2001 scUM
    3. 2008 Gators
    4. 2018 Clemson
    5. 2005 Texas
    6. 96 Gators
    7. 87 scUM
    8. 2004 USC
    9. 2009 Bama
    10. 79 Gators :)

    Based on some of the stories I've heard about Clemson fans, probably somewhere between its rear haunches.

    It is difficult to describe the arrogance of clemtech and acc fans. You just have to live amongst them.

    One guy stated the acc was the best football conference based on that one win. nevermind the fact they have 2 teams currently ranked and thoroughly **** the bed during bowl season. Their best teams, which outside of clemtech, I am having a hard time thinking of one (NCSU maybe?) didn't perform well.

    By contrast, the SEC has 4 teams ranked in the top 10 at season end.

      96 team is too far down that list, should be at least 3rd, possibly 2nd

        about 12/15 sounds good to me.

        They needed a miracle to beat Syracuse........ 14-0 is a great season but GOAT talk...:bwahaha:

        The Clemson and the ACC is no different then when Bobby B and FSU ran rough shot through the conference in the 90's. The other teams are just there for you to look good against and gain star points for blow out wins that get you to the playoffs. Then you get 3 or 4 weeks to coach your team up to beat 1 or 2 teams. The formula worked then and does now.

        I am not saying that Clemson did not have a great team but they didn't have the gauntlet that other conferences present to get to the playoff. That's my opinion and I am sticking to it.

        My rank for this year's Clemson team is right ahead of FSU's unranked '93 team.

          Ouch
          ‘95 Huskers #1, no! Top 5 maybe. I put them further down. They still gave up the points. I believe our 2008 team takes them to task.

          Also I think the Leinart/Bush Trojans beat them

            No, he's right. That Nebraska team was insane. I'd have them at #1 as well. I lived up there at the time, talked a ton of **** going into it, and just felt hopeless the entire game. I went to a few games in Lincoln that year. No team could get up to play them. Just no chance. I like our 96 team better than our 08. That changes if Percy is 100% throughout, tho

            08 team would beat the 96 team.

              Out of 10 times I'm sure they would have some victories.

              I'm amazed how some of you are impressed by Nebraska scored on a Ron Zook/Bobby Pruitt defense.

              Hell everyone scores on a Ron Zook defense. FSU scored 28 points in one quarter to tie the game. Cowbell beat us by four touchdowns a week after they lost to a below .500 1AA team. EVERYONE scores on Ron Zook.

              Any of the UF title teams would wipe the field with any of the Tater title teams, no matter who played who.
