My Crystal Ball has been 100% correct so far. Clemson is 3-0 heading to the Textile Bowl against N.C. State this weekend and Tommy Bowden is a big reason for this. A lot of Clemson fans aren't worried about this game but instead are already looking ahead towards Sept. 29 @ Georgia Tech. Damnit, if I see one Clemson fan on TigerNet this week talking about our game against Georgia Tech and not NC State I swear I might break something. This is not going to be an easy game and in my opinion having the "Lincoln Financial Sports' curse broadcasting the game, it's going to be all we can do to come out with a "W." Just knowing that we have to play at noon with Mike Hogwood, Doc Walker, and Steve Martin announcing our game this week makes me want to puke! I have nothing against the network in general, and I have nothing against the announcers ...... until Clemson plays a game on one of their broadcasts. I swear these announcers have a curse on Clemson whenever we play an ACC road game. Seriously, if the spread opens up today at 8 points or higher for Clemson, bet the house on N.C. State to cover. The only thing we have going for us this weekend is Tommy Bowden being our head coach (and having punter Jimmy Maners and kicker Mark Buchholz is a plus too).
I know most of you read my website because of the sillyness and gangsta like attitude, but today's post really needed to be written in a serious tone. We have now learned that maybe N.C. State isn't all that bad. They lost by two points to Central Florida in Week 1, we now learn that wasn't a bad loss at all considering Central Florida had Texas all but beat this past week. N.C. State also lost to BC in Week 2 - we now know BC is the real deal after dominating Georgia Tech in Atlanta on Saturday. This is Cullen Harper's first game on the road as a starter, I honestly think it would be best for me not to watch this game on Saturday. Oh yea, did I mention this is a must win game ACC game for State considering they're already 0-2 in the conference?
