PAT’S THOUGHTS:

I do not want to fade elite teams. Clemson is obviously elite. They are also double digit roadies facing a coach (Jimbo Fisher) who knows them well and always played them tough. A&M also has the 12th man and will be a hostile road environment for a team that isn’t that dynamic on offense. The pub is pounding Clemson. We have heard all off-season how Clemson has the greatest DL in the history of college football. Those who were paying attention also know they got shellacked by Syracuse last year. Hard pass for me, but would not think less of anyone taking the Aggies.
