Your O puts emphasis on the run game because the passing game is non-existent
And even then their run game sucks.
3 yards per rush vs. TAMU and LSU, 1.9 yards per rush vs. USCe and 2 yards per rush vs. UGA.
There is only one legit offense in the overrated SEC and that is BAMA.
TAMU is decent, but match them up against a real defense and Johnny Football ain't doin' nothing!

This is not about NCST. That's yesterday's news. This is about UF and their DREADFUL offense!! This is about you losing to a dysfunctional UGA team at a neutral site. This is about you only able to beat a decent team when you're at home. This is about you and your pathetic offense putting up a ZERO at the Doak!!! You guys are the most overrated team in the land. You've been exposed! Deal with it!! HAHAHAHAHA!
UF lost a close gm to an uber talented UGA team. They are overrated imo.
FSU lost to an NCST team that was missing 3 OL starters, and that allowed S. Mooris to set an ACC passing record against their defense.
I don't see how you are calling out the gators for being "the most overrated team in the land." FSU and Oregon haven't been tested by a wuality defense yet.
And the Gators haven't face a quality offense like Clemson's yet. There is only one legit offense in the vastly overrated SEC--Bama. And don't say TAMU. They're no more explosive than UNC or NCST.
Well seeing how UT already showed that they're way more explosive than NCST, I believe aTm would put up 45-50 on them.
You really just said that NCST is explosive as aTm? Wow.
Tennessee and Texas A&M both have legit offenses.
They're good compared to the rest of the SEC (not including BAMA) but nowhere near the level of FSU or Clemson.
Listen, I'm not trying to say that NCST is a great (or even very good) football team, they're not, but Mike Glennon is a #1 draft pick. The boy can ball with any QB in the country.
Uber talented? Sure. But most of that talent is on the defense and their defense has been bad all year. Their OL is shaky, their QB isn't the brightest bulb, and 3 of their best offensive players are two TRUE FR and a true SO.
aTm and UT's offensive lines are way >>>> than Clemson's.
aTm would beat Clemson, imo, Clemson vs UT would be a good gm. Clemson probably wins by 7-10 pts.
Thats why I said that they are overrated. But, to their credit, that was only Rambo's and Ogletree's 3rd or 4th gm back. They were bound to get it together as a unit at some point.
And FSU best rb, ol, and wr, are underclassmen right?
I'm not talking about offensive lines, I'm talking about offensive production, offensive talent and offensive scheme. If you think UT and TAMU can even touch Clemson you're high on the SEC kool aid. Have you ever watched Clemson play!?
What went wrong with FSU's offense last season?
Our best RB was a SR but now it's a SO, unless you want to say Pryor (SR) is our best back.
Our best WR, Rodney's a SR, along with Shaw, Dent, and Haggins who are all JR's.
Menelik Watson is our best OL, he's a JR.
To be fair though, Clemson's scheme makes sure the offense isn't reliant on the OL's performance.
Last season? Irrelevent, but I'll explain. Our entire offensive line went down, CT broke his back, EJ missed games due to a shoulder injury. Why do you ask?
You said OL had nothing to do with it. Just pointing out that it is the strength of an offense.
Clemson's offensive line wore down in the 3rd qtr against FSU.
That would happen against a lot of the LSU/Bama/UF/Notre Dame/FSU type defenses.
They would look completely different, imo.
Listen, I agree that we wore them down, but we also put 49 points on the board. Also, their offensive scheme is such that they can score at will in spite of an average OL. Boyd, Ellington, Hopkins, and Watkins are the best quartet in the nation.
"It's not the SEC conference vs. the ACC conference," "It's Florida State vs. Auburn." --Lamarcus Joyner
And Barkley, Lee, and Woods were supposed to be the best trio.
All that means squat when subpar olines get beat on the line of scrimmage, or worn down.
Dude, Clemson has lost once this year, to us, and they're a top 11 team. USC has not met expectations, thus far; I believe Clemson has. If you put their offenses side by side there's no comparison. Clemson's is much better. Barkley's been a huge disappointment. Boyd has been fabulous. I also think Clemson's OL has overachieved. We thought they were going to be wretched, but they're not that bad.
Clemson will score on anybody, I agree. They are explosive.
But, if they were to play a hard nosed, deep, dline, I think they would wear down. And any smart coach would sit on the ball, to limit their offensive possessions. Their run defense is really really bad.
Let's not digress any further from the OP: Jeff Driskell really sucks!
