Your “Looks Like We Made It” Finale at Clemson Open Thread

Ah yes, there’s the finish line ahead…

finishlinecrash

Whooopsie.

Well, the end of the regular season has arroved as the Pack (15-15, 4-13 ACC) hits the road tonight to face the Tiggers of Clemson (14-14, 4-12 ACC).

And while the game may not have the importance of some other games going on as we approach the finish line, it does have the potential to have an effect on our seeding for the ACC Tourney;  and thus our opponent and game time for the Les Robinson round next Tuesday (yes Les has moved up in the world…he now has a whole round dedicated to him instead of just one game).

Like the Pack, Clemson has had a tough go of it of late. Coming into tonight’s game they’ve dropped three straight (FSU, @VT, @Miami) and six of their past seven.

    I can’t even pay attention ever since the kid went down. Just torn the f-ck up about it. He was becoming my personal fave, non-Hippo division.

    Honestly, for the past few minutes I’ve been looking more at the Clemson cheerleaders than the game.
    Maybe our guys have been doing the same, now that I think about it.

    This could be as pyrrhic a win as we have ever recorded. Not only would we lose Markell (easier to transfer given the need for rehab), but also this could easily be the final straw that gets Brownell fired.

    Then, the Tiggers immediately hire Will Wade.

    Not hard to believe, commentator guy. Two sloppy teams that don’t defend.
