2020 Sugar Bowl Recap: (3)Ohio State 49, (2)Clemson 28
#2 Clemson suffered their worse loss in the playoff era on New Year's Day as #3 Ohio State dominated all phases of the game, handing the Tigers a humbling 49-28 defeat that capped off an unusual 2020 season. In this ep we recap a game in which the Tigers had no answer for OSU on either side of the ball, as the Buckeyes defensive pressure stymied Trevor Lawrence and the offense (7:24) and the defense looked completely inept against a masterful game plan and gutsy performance by QB Justin Fields (33:57). In doing so we breakdown the Tigers' deficiencies and how it relates to recruiting, before offering an optimistic look ahead to their trajectory moving forward. We wrap with a quick look at the upcoming national championship game that will be played without the Tigers for only the 2nd time in 6 years (1:11:46). Remember, things could be worse, you could be a Gamecock fan. Enjoy and Go Tigers!!!

The #2 Clemson Tigers will be making their 6th consecutive trip to the College Football Playoff after claiming their 6th straight ACC title in a 34-10 blowout of fellow playoff contender Notre Dame. In doing so they avenged their loss to the Irish from 6 weeks prior when a depleted Tiger team lost in double OT in South Bend. In this ep we discuss the dominant performance and what having Trevor Lawrence back meant to the offense (11:46), and how the return of key defensive starters, combined with the development of some outstanding true freshman, held Ian Book and Notre Dame to 10 points the second time around (41:36). We wrap with a look ahead to the playoffs and Clemson’s matchup against six game winner Ohio State, and discuss the potential for playoff expansion (1:07:44). Enjoy and Go Tigers!!!

7-1: FSU's Medical Staff Calls Audible, Denies Clemson
The Clemson Tigers went down to Tallahassee on Saturday looking to bounce back after their first loss of the season, only to be turned away by the FSU administration in an attempt to avoid further humiliation in a humbling first season under coach Mike Norvell Corona Virus. In doing so they almost assured that Dabo and the Tigers hang 100 on them the next time the two teams meet, which in our estimation may very well have been worth it. So in this ep we discuss the decision, the fallout and the inaugural College Football Playoff ranking for 2020. Enjoy and Go Tigers!!! (We attempted to get the FSU medical staff on for an interview but one of our hosts has COVID, so they declined out of an abundance of caution)

7-0: (1)Clemson 34, Boston College 28
The #1 Clemson Tigers overcame the absence of Trevor Lawrence after he tested positive for Covid late in the week, mounting the largest home comeback in school history en route to a 34-28 victory over Boston College. In this ep we discuss the rare closely-contested ACC matchup (00:55), as the offense rallied behind the play of the next in line of Clemson 5-star QBs, true freshman DJ Uiagalelei (22:48), and the defense made adjustments to stop the bleeding, holding the Eagles scoreless in the 2nd half (39:23). We then offer our early thoughts on the upcoming Notre Dame game before taking a look around a college football landscape that is nearly back to full strength, with the PAC-12 joining the fold this weekend (59:12). Enjoy and Go Tigers!!!

6-0: (1)Clemson 47, Syracuse 21
The #1 Clemson Tigers turned it on late in a 47-21 win over the Syracuse Orange Saturday night, "escaping" with a four score victory that left fans somewhat uneasy about a somewhat erratic performance. In this episode we recap a game that saw the offense sputter at times (13:31), with miscues stalling drives and leading to points against a defense that played much better than it appeared on first watch (30:46). We also discuss the phenomenon that is Will Spiers, and a special teams unit that continues to struggle with blocked kicks (52:35). We wrap with a look at last week's games that saw the start of the Big 10 season, and look ahead to next week's games on the docket (1:00:34). Enjoy and Go Tigers!!!

5-0: (1)Clemson 73, Georgia Tech 7
The #1 Clemson Tigers visited Bobby Dodd Saturday afternoon and ruthlessly exterminated the Yellow Jackets from Georgia Tech, showing no mercy to neither engineer nor scoreboard en route to a 73-7 victory in Atlanta. In this recap of the carnage, we discuss a Trevor Lawrence-led offense that seems to be hitting on all cylinders (10:15) and a defense that continues to flex its muscles behind wealth of talent and depth (41:06). We wrap with a look at last weeks notable games, discuss the absurdity of the rankings, and continue to state a case for this being the year a Group of 5 team makes the playoffs (58:28). After all, it is 2020... Enjoy and Go Tigers!!!

3-0: (1)Clemson 41, Virginia 23
The #1 Clemson Tigers faced their first test of the season in Death Valley on Saturday nigh against the reigning ACC Coastal champions, the Virginia Cavaliers, and, though pulling off an 18 point victory, head into next weekend's highly anticipated matchup against the #7 Miami Hurricanes with more questions than answers. In this ep we discuss the game and the struggles of a young, but talented, defense that gave up over 400 yards to the Cavaliers (3:13), a potentially lethal offense that has not quite yet found it’s identity (33:27), and a special teams unit that has quietly become a strength of this team (1:02:46). We wrap with a look ahead to the game against the Hurricanes this weekend and a look around at what continues to be an uncharted College Football landscape (1:06:58). Enjoy and Go Tigers!!!

2-0: (1)Clemson 49 - The Citadel 0
The #1 Clemson Tigers shelled The Citadel in front of 19k socially distanced fans in Death Valley on Saturday afternoon, scoring all 49 points in the first half in a game that saw 100+ Tigers get in on the action. In this ep we recap an offense (4:55) that, led by Heisman candidate Trevor Lawrence, was unstoppable behind the first team offensive line but stalled once the backups entered the game, failing to put up points in the 2nd half. We also take a look at the defense (29:47) which, on the other hand, dominated throughout behind the strength of a rebuilt defensive line unit led by the phenomenal true freshman Miles Murphy and Bryan Bresee. We wrap with a look around the ACC and begin to ponder Clemson’s path to the playoffs with the SEC now slated to start next week and the Big 10 back in the fold (48:26). Enjoy and Go Tigers!!!

1-0: (1)Clemson 37, Wake Forest 13
The Clemson Tigers are back for what is already shaping up to be an unusual and unpredictable 2020 college football season as, despite several key players not making the trip to Winston-Salem, presumably due to COVID-related precautions, the Tigers shook off some early rust in an eventual 37-13 route of Wake Forest on Saturday night. In this game recap we discuss an offense that once again opened up and found success in the passing game over the middle (8:16), a new look defense that returned to dominating the line of scrimmage (33:41), and a special teams unit now filled with veteran kickers who made their impact felt (44:54). We wrap with a look around college football and discuss the possibility of the Big 10 joining in on the action as conference officials continue to waffle on their decision (49:08). Either way, football is back. Enjoy and Go Tigers!!!

Opting In: August Camp Check-in
As the end of August Camp nears we are t-minus 3 weeks from the hopeful start of the College Football season and the dust has seemingly settled, for now, on which conferences are opting in or opting out of the 2020 campaign. While the lack of Big 10 participation the sport loses some luster but there is still plenty to be excited about as Trevor Lawrence, ETN, and a reloaded defensive line look to make it back to the playoffs for a 6th straight season. In this ep we discuss the fallout from the Big 10 debacle, catch up on the storylines and standouts on offense and defense two weeks into camp, and continue to search for something to excite us about this years schedule (aside from the fact we’d get to watch football this year). Enjoy and Go Tigers!!!

2019 Fiesta Bowl Preview: #2 Ohio State vs. #3 Clemson
MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE PAWCAST!!! The #3 Clemson Tigers make their 5th straight College Football Playoff appearance this weekend in the Fiesta Bowl as the #2 Ohio State Buckeyes look to unseat the defending national champion. Each team will face their toughest test of the season as two statistically elite offenses and defenses will be on display in what stands to be one of the best semifinal match-ups of the CFP era. In this ep we preview a game (4:31) that will showcase two elite QBs whose battle in the recruiting rankings two years ago finally finds its way to the field in Glendale. Justin Fields and the OSU offense will challenge a reloaded Clemson defense that has exceeded all expectations, albeit against vastly inferior competition (16:42). On the flip side Trevor Lawrence aims to continue his playoff dominance as a potent Clemson offense looks to overpower an OSU defense that, though greatly improved, has not faced a dynamic offense all year (30:46). And in a game between such evenly matched opponents special teams could be a major factor, an area in which OSU has a decided advantage (43:09). We wrap with our keys to the game and predictions for how we see it playing out (49:38). Spot. The. Damn. Ball. Go Tigers!!!
