    The 2015 Clemson Tigers will go as far as redshirt senior QB Brett Tate will take them. The Tiger QB has little experience and lacks the talent that typically accompanies Clemson QB's. Looking to defend their ACC Title, Clemson will once again lean on their running game and do whatever it takes to get their Heisman winner JR WR Sammy Watkins the ball. He is the best thing in orange this year and last year. It all will depend on how well Tate can get him the ball.

    QB: Clemson lacks depth, experience and talent at this position in 2015. Help is on the way however with Ryan Upshaw, who has been redshirted and will most likely be the starter next year.

    HB: JR Mike Davis had extensive playing time last year and had a good year. He is a quick shifty back but lacks the ability to break tackles. He will be platooning with RS FR Josh Mills and Jeremy Jackson all season.

    WR: This is the strength of the Tiger O. Unfortunately, their success depends on Brett Tate's ability to get them the ball in space and allow them to make playes. The WR core is led by JR Sammy Watkins who is coming off a brilliant Heisman campaign in only his secong year in the college ranks. With unmatched speed and amazing hands, he looks to once again, be a contender for this years Heisman Trohpy.

    Tiger D: The Tiger defense is anchored this year by All-American RE Brian Franklin, All-American DT Russell Payne, All-American MLB Thomas Adams, All-American CB Jason Johnston, All-American (2014 Bednarik & 2014 Thorpe Award Winner) FS Harold Shaffer, and All-American SS Tom Manning. There are holes throughout the Tiger D, but there is also a ton of experience and talent.

    the second one is a picture of a MLK party a fraternity on Clemson's campus had a year or so ago. They got national press over it in a bad way. Hopefully no one takes offense to the picture if you do I apologize.

    That is funny I used to drive to Fort Gordon all the time when I was stationed at Robins AFB in Georgia. Had to drive there at least once a month for about three years for their dental clinic. Nice area up around there for sure.

    Updated to reflect recruiting for Clemson up to Week 8. I always thought this was a good place to showcase your schools recruiting class.

    'bout damn time huh!! Just a bit too late to matter though. When you get a look at your recruiting on your xBox, let me know if the job I did was acceptable.

    The new 4 star recruit you picked up is from Florida. You put a smiley face next to it. I figured since he was from fl we were both competing for him.
