    Not really. They played Virginia Tech last year 11 games ago. VT's defense was ranked 18th, and they allowed 311 yards to FSU - one more than we did.

    As for this year, let's see how FSU and Clemson did against other teams this year.

    Florida State

    Opponent---------Avg Yds/game allowed-----------------FSU Yds gained----Delta

    Pitt......................................368 yds/game............................533 yds..........+165
    Nevada...............................488 yds/game............................617 yds..........+129
    Boston College...................429 yds/game............................489 yds...........+060
    Maryland.............................362 yds/game............................613 yds..........+251

    Average...........................412 yds/game............................563 yds...........+151

    Clemson

    Opponent---------Avg Yds/game allowed---------Clemson Yds gained----Delta

    Georgia..............................399 yds/game...............................467 yds.......+068
    NC State............................355 yds/game...............................415 yds.......+060
    Wake Forest......................365 yds/game...............................573 yds.......+208
    Syracuse............................388 yds/game...............................624 yds.......+236
    Boston College..................429 yds/game................................496 yds.......+067

    Average...........................405 yds/game...............................515 yds........+110

    Thus far, they've only played one common opponent and did slightly better than Boston College usually allows.

    yeah, forgot about that VT game. So this Clemson defense will be the 3rd best they'll see in nearly 2 years.

    What I've noticed is how a lot of nolies I know or just the ones here are avoiding outright picking fsu to win, as if they're afraid of putting their head on the chopping block and being wrong. :laugh:

    nolies are worried about this game because they knw it's NOT a total patsy they're playing this time, it's actually a team that can challenge them (at least they can from appearance).

    But like a previous poster said... "when in doubt, pick the home team with the senior QB".

    Hmm let us see...a true freshman QB vs a senior QB, at Clemson and Clemson already beat UGA. I have to go with Clemson.

    I may just be greedy and have a huge dislike for fsu.....but I want Clemson to blow them out if nothing else win in dominating fashion
