Clemson Tigers 2008 Football Schedule

The 2008 Clemson Football schedule was released today. It includes three D-1AA games against Citadel, S. Carolina State and Duke. Wait, Duke?

Among the highlights of the schedule includes a trip to Atlanta to face Alabama in the Georgia Dome, an away game at Boston College and an a trip to FSU to face a team bent on revenge as Clemson as won 3 or the last 4 games. There really aren't that many attractive games at home this year, unlike this past year when BC and V Tech came to town. The home tilt includes in order, Citadel, NC State, SC State, Maryland, G Tech, Duke and S. Carolina. Away games are Alabama, Wake Forest, BC, FSU, Virginia.

Now I'm a homer when it comes to Clemson sports and I'm pretty confident 10 wins is almost a given. Clemson is fresh off what many consider to be their best recruiting class ever, filling and stock pilling talent at key positions. The 2008 squad will return 16 starters, 8 on each side of the ball including QB, RBs and WRs.

The only two potentional losses I see as of now would appear to be Alabama and FSU but they are having some issues with QB there and Clemson's defense looks to be very solid. A perfect season and a trip to Jacksonville in the ACC Championship game is a distinct possibility. But if you're a Clemson fan the one thing you've learned of the years is to not get too confident about potential, its come back to hurt.

Here's the 2008 schedule.

Aug 30 Alabama (Georgia Dome) W
Sept 6 Citadel W
Sept 13 NC State W
Sept 20 SC State W
Sept 27 Maryland W
Oct 9 at Wake Forest W
Oct 18 Georgia Tech W
Nov 1 at Boston College W
Nov 8 at Florida State W
Nov 15 Duke W
Nov 22 at Virginia W
Nov 29 S. Carolina W

Quite honestly I don't know where Clemson loses. Boston College is starting a new QB, FSU still has mediocre QB Drew Weatherford. Other question marks would be Alabama and maybe S. Carolina but everyone knows we own them, even Spurrier knows it now.

ACC Champions
National Title Game Appearance?

It's all very possible and very realistic.

Go Tigers!!!!
