Vegas is opening with Clem as a 14 point underdog. Really!

Take FSU to cover
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
If FSU covers that, the noles should be the #2 team in the nation.
I've already got big money on Clemson +14
Clemson is not a good team and will likely finish the season unranked. If they do manage to finish the year ranked, it will be more of a product of being in the ACC rather than actually being any good.
I think that was a great bet. It will be down to 10 by the weekend. Heck, LSU is only a 18.5 favorite.
Sammy is back, they might lose but they will cover
I don't think they are great, but a 14 point underdog is a little heavy.
If FSU is a legitimate NC contender, which I think they may be, then they will have no trouble covering at -14.

Clemson will have trouble running their fast paced offense. Doak is going to be rockin'
I wanna tease the over and Clemson bad...but I hate rooting against my team
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
Do it, you win either way.
FSU's home field advantage is legendary. Will be a huge disadvantage for Clemson,
I'm surprised WF even came out of the locker room with Doak rockin like it was just before the game.
Yeah but say we kill them by 28 instead of being happy Ill be furious. I dont deal with losing money very well
Dont be gay bro. You know Doak will be wild for Clemson.
I'm sure FSU will be up, but Doak is not really known for being intimidating. If Clemson could take AU to OT in 2010 in AU and beat VT by 20 last year @ VT then I doubt the crowd at Doak plays a huge role.
still better than Miami's attendance.
Id agree we dont have a rep like some other schools when it comes to crowd noise, but the place gets up for big games. OK game last year was crazy, I expect the same type atmosphere seeing as we have a lot of hype and its our first legit game. Im hoping my boy comes through with a ticket for me tomorrow.
How old are you
FSU fans are spoiled but big games are as crazy as anywhere you will see in america
Doak was amazing last year for the OU game
80000+ and all of em going batshit crazy all game long
27, but maybe I'm just spoiled by SEC venues.
Watch Auburn vs Clemson and then watch Auburn play Miss St and La-Monroe. All you need to know. The ACC is just that bad.
FSU is in the ACC
You are and just need to see Doak when it matters
UF, Miami and any night game is always electric
Noon games Wake ? Not so much, especially after 12 years of let downs
On the spread: Clemson has some defensive numbers that are troubling. They are giving up over 5 yards per attempt on the ground and in the air so far this year. Furman's true freshman QB went 19/29 against them. And through 3 games, two of them against overwhelmed competition, Clemson has 3 sacks. Its a rivalry game so I expect it to be close, but I can understand the spread.
On FSU fans: as much as people will try to excuse it, people in Florida generally not great sports fans. Baseball attendance is horrible, NFL attendance is bad now, hoops only makes an impact with a colossal star in tow. How does this effect CFB? Well the CFB fans are better, but that is because the teams usually win for longer. Couple of bad years for UF and the fans scatter, Hurricane fans are notoriously horrible and FSU isn't immune from this either. If you are UF though at least you can count on visiting fans to put butts in the seats. I was at the game Saturday and would have been shocked if Wake had 200 fans in the stadium. So no DCS won't be rocking every game of the year, but for Clemson, Miami, Florida and any truly marquee game the building will be crazy.
All I know is that Iw ill be there for this game and it will be rocking. Ask OU fans if it was loud last year.
Clemson still has basically the same group of skill postion players they had on offense last year with Watkins back. I think they can score some points if their line can block. That is the million dollar question in this game. Can Clemson's offensive line block worth a crap in this game? Auburn's defense even sacked Tahj Boyd 4 or 5 times and pressure him numerous other times
