Whenever trump describes something as "perfect" I automatically think that it has to be fucked up beyond salvage whether it's dinner or anything else.

CLEMSON – Clemson just finished a bye week, and so did their next opponent, the Florida State Seminoles. But that is not where the similarities between the two programs end.
In fact, it was only two years ago that Seminole head coach Willie Taggart stopped by the Clemson campus hoping to poach a few ideas from head coach Dabo Swinney.
Coaches generally take trips to opposing schools during the summertime break.
It is a time to learn from other schools about their schemes, what works for them, how they run their program, offense and defensive philosophies, etc. In fact, the Tigers have traveled to a number of different schools since head coach Dabo Swinney took over during the 2008 season.

Generally you avoid schools that you will play, as your opponents are not very anxious to share their secrets with you. That is unless you had no intention of being an opposing coach, which is exactly what happened to Taggart, who spent some time at Clemson on his way to Oregon — where he was a newly hired head coach.
When he was asked if he would have paid more attention if he had known a year later he would be trying to knock off the Tigers as the kings of the ACC, his response was to turn the tables and sing the praises of the program that Swinney has built.

“I wouldn't say I would have paid a lot more attention. I paid a lot of attention while I was there,” Taggart said. “Coach (Dabo) Swinney has done a great job at Clemson. I loved how he ran his program. I had a chance to meet with his offensive coordinator the year before and was really impressed with him. And I think after meeting Coach Scott, I was like, I want to meet Coach Swinney and see how all this thing originated.

“But they've done a great job over the years, and once you go there and you get around the program and you see the environment, you see the culture, you can understand why they're having a lot of success at Clemson.”

Washington St +3 -1! @(18)Arizona St. Not sure about this one. Thoughts? That's a big change, making it 4 points more difficult for me.
@(24)Texas A&M +17.5 +16.5 (1)Alabama.
Texas Tech +10 +11 @(22)Baylor. Knock it out of the rankings.
Louisville +6.5 @(19)Wake Forest. It will be even sweeter if both teams are unranked when they crush Clemson.
@(17)Iowa +3 +3.5 (10)Penn St. Big game. Knock it out of the top 10. Won't happen if the same Hawkeyes that played Michigan last week show up.
@(5)LSU -13 (7)Florida. 3rd big game. Don Jr sucks.
@(14)Boise St -13 -11.5 Hawaii. The Playoffs are Somewhere Over the Rainbow (Warriors).

4 games between ranked teams, 6 games with single digit spreads - that's better.

That was awful, repping the ACC perfectly. (3-3) Miami 17-9. Only Clemson and Wake still ranked.

With OR's drubbing of CO, I'm 1-1, tied for 5th.

South Carolina knocked off unbeaten Georgia in double overtime for a major SEC upset Saturday, a stunning outcome that will surely dampen the previously unbeaten Bulldogs' College Football Playoff aspirations.

Gamecocks kicker Parker White connected on a 24-yard field goal in the second overtime to secure the 20-17 victory before Rodrigo Blankenship missed his kick on the ensuing possession.

The upset was the first time a top-6 team in the Coaches Poll has lost in 2019, and it's also the first time an SEC team fell to an unranked foe.

Good win for the Gamecocks.

Maryland football blown out by Purdue, 40-14, on road

The Terps allow the Boilermakers their first Big Ten win of the season.
Maryland (3-3, 1-2 Big Ten) allowed Purdue (2-4, 1-2) to convert 24 first downs and go 11-18 on third down. Plummer, who has averaged 182 passing yards in his previous two starts and only had 545 yards on 97 attempts in three games, led the Boilermaker offense to 420 passing yards and three touchdowns in the air.

Thanks for not helping me avoid poor choices, folks ;) . ASU won with a drive and TD with 0:38 left, arrrggghhh. 14 of 19 got this one correct :roll: .
@(24)Texas A&M +16.5 (1)Alabama.
Damn, missed the spread by just 2.5. Another Texas A&M loss does make Clemson look even more mediocre, not a single quality win. :thumbup: . Not only has Clemson not beaten a ranked team, it hasn't beaten a team with a winning record. Its opponents are a combined 16-20.
Texas Tech +11 @(22)Baylor. Knock it out of the rankings.
Good game. I'll take the spread win since I don't care for either team.
3-3 in the late afternoon games. I'm 7-5, tied for 6th, and surprisingly could still take solo 1st if I win the last 6 games.

Yeah, pretty much the same Hawkeyes. 1st TD in forever with less than 3 min. left, failed on a 2-point try that would have beat the spread by 0.5, grrr.
@(5)LSU -13 (7)Florida. 3rd big game. Don Jr sucks.
Good game, LSU eked out the spread win by 1, becomes the SEC's best hope of beating Bama.
@(14)Boise St -11.5 Hawaii. The Playoffs are Somewhere Over the Rainbow (Warriors).
(9)Notre Dame barely beat unranked USC 30-27, it's vulnerable.

I kinda flopped in the evening, will finish 10-8 or 9-9 depending on Boise St, no money.


Edit: Boise St 59-37. Defense, we don't need no stinkin' defense.
Tie for 7th on the week, 3 from the 13-5 winners. Still in a tie for season 5th, now 5 points out of the lead.

5 Oklahoma (6-0) Ugh.
6 Wisconsin (6-0) Up from #8. Go Badgers!
7 Penn State (6-0) Double ugh.

10 Georgia (5-1) Down from #3. Sweet, keep falling.
11 Auburn (5-1) Up from #12.

Looks like the sec should skip next week

Here are the Week 8 opening lines just posted by Circa Sports:

Kentucky at Georgia (-27)
LSU (-18) at Mississippi State
Florida (-6.5) at South Carolina
Auburn (-16.5) at Arkansas
Missouri (-21.5) at Vanderbilt
Texas A&M (-6) at Ole Miss
Tennessee at Alabama (-35.5)

Nah, who knows what will happen with Florida and SC, which Auburn will show, will there be a landsharknado, or will bammer fans get caught in a traffic jam trying to leave during halftime. There are unanswered answers yet to be answered.

Clemson is using the ucf technique

Interesting, Auburn usually falls after an off week. I hope the piggies are as bad as they look. We need practice, a lot more practice.

5-1 Auburn benefited from the 4-2 Texas drop from #11 to #15, even though its losses are to #2 LSU and #6 OK, both by just a TD.
