What We Learned From Clemson Tigers’ Season-Opening Victory


There probably isn’t a more over-evaluated game than the first one. 

Everyone spends nine months discussing what didn’t go well the season before, asks how it’s going to be better and then tries to find faults in every play in Week 1. 

It’s natural and not necessarily a bad thing, but Week 1 is the smallest of sample sizes. It’s a thin line to walk between valid criticism/concern and overreacting hot takes. 

That said, there was a lot to digest from Clemson’s 41-10 victory over Georgia Tech. The Tigers started out looking like a spitting image of last year’s struggling offense, but the final three quarters weren’t that bad.
