1. Clemson isn’t going anywhere
The other thing to keep in mind is that Clemson isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
The stars off of the 2018 team are returning in 2019. The Tigers will lose the majority of defensive players, but they return basically everything offensively.
Tee Higgins, Trevor Lawrence, Travis Etienne, Justyn Ross, Lyn-J Dixon. They’re all returning.
Opposing teams are going to have a tough time dealing with that elite offense and I think you’ll see the defense come along as the season progresses because there’s still plenty of talent there.
