Lot's of college football fans cry conference when comparing their team to Clemson.
Yet, Clemson has defeated the best they have to offer.
Alabama
Ohio State
Oklahoma

Auburn had it's opportunity in 2016 & 2017, they Failed too.

I'm an Auburn fan, always have been, likely always will be.
I'm a fan, won lose, or draw in years past.

Well said!

I could have done better with the grammar.

My guess
Catshit is a fair weather fan. It never fails around here that bammer fans run for the exits on bad years. Likely that cat lost his love during Clemson's tough times.
I noticed that he didn't answer about Ingrim and Parker years.

It's questionable whether s/he is really even any kind of Clemson fan. We already know that s/he is a serial liar and coward, and that s/he is so infantile as to routinely take positions that s/he thinks will annoy us and for no other reason. Could be a field hockey player and fan, nttawwt, that magically and conveniently adopted the champs solely because we actually care about college football yet support different schools.

You have any idea how many of your posts are just generic taunting? Whether it's sports, politics, religion, whatever, you post only taunts. Why don't you occasionally pick something you'd like to talk about and maybe you would get better responses and less ridicule.
Immature 'nyah, nyah, nyah' is all s/he's got, this time stupidly that ...

You are probably right. Hard to imagine him supporting anything that isn't already winning.

Ingram and Parker, you really are an old fart. It's not Clemson's fault that Auburn has fallen behind the times.
For me, the past 40+ years there's only been one real football team from the state of South Carolina and it isn't a Gamecock.
Not that I care, but it's also not Alabama's fault that Auburn is not the premier team of that state.
Speaking of falling behind the times, UCF has emerged in the state of Florida.
Of course as an Auburn fan, you already know about that.

Over the years Maryland wasn't much competition for Clemson in the ACC.
Now that they're in the big10 not much has changed for Ohio State.

Not quite. In 14 months he will be saying exactly what he said after the 2004 election, "I'm not a republican, I'm an Independent and there were many of us true Patriots who didn't vote for trump because ..."

Jordan McNair could give some insight on stolen valor, if he was alive.
What we know about Jordan McNair’s death and Maryland football’s role in it.

Every team is prone to take a loss from time to time, some more than others.
2017? Times not so good for Maryland, have they ever.
Record: 4-8 Conference: 2-7

And get beat by Syracuse

... MD football sucks and the fans know it. Pssst, that's a decades-old story, duh. At least the Terps moved to a real conference, the Big Ten, rather than staying in the ACC's "small pond".

Otoh, when one looks beyond the jocks:

Ranked: The Top 100 US Universities

36. University of Maryland, College Park

Not in the top 100: Clemson

Top US universities by state

Not even tops in SC, wow!: South Carolina - 2 (95. University of South Carolina at Columbia , Clemson University)

Full disclosure: The University of Maryland is not tops in Maryland, either, but its competition is a little stiffer.
Maryland - 3 (12. Johns Hopkins University, University of Maryland College Park, 84. University of Maryland Baltimore County)

Fwiw, a Maryland grad would not have so stupidly set her/himself up for failure.
