Here's How This College Football Analyst Thinks Clemson Would Do In The SEC
Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports
College football analyst Pete Fiutak thinks Clemson is on the same level as Georgia if they were in the SEC. Per WFNZ’s Wilson and Parcell Show...
quote:

“‘Yeah, Clemson you’re great. No one’s denying your greatness, but stick Clemson in the SEC and they’re like, what, Georgia?’ They might get through one (challenge) to get to a national championship. But it’s one thing to go do what an Alabama’s done and go through LSU, Auburn, Mississippi State and the whole SEC world or else having to go through NC State – the Virginias of the world. It’s just a different animal.”
Thoughts?

Alabama has the easiest schedule in the SEC.

I agree...they would be near the top of either division and would have a good chance of winning the conference. They wouldn't win it as much as they win the ACC lately and they would probably deal with more injuries on a year to year basis.

FACTS are FACTS. I completely agree. No other conferences can duplicate the SEC meat grinder.

they are good enough to compete. but keep in mind, had they been in the SEC the whole time they wouldnt have been in those national title games. at least not all of them. which means that recruiting would not have been as good. the whole spiral effect

Agree Duba, But I also think Clemson is way ahead of both leagues.

Tony, I would imagine Clemson would get hit by top caliber defensive players as much as they did in the CFP, not much and not often.

Bama outscored it’s division opponents 314-92. I see what you mean by intimidating schedule.??

They would still be good but they would not roll into the college football playoffs with no injuries. Playing Virginia, north Carolina, nc state, wake...it's a joke. Bama would beat each one of these, literally, by 70 points. Playing bama, auburn, LSU, miss state, arkie, Georgia, Florida, etc takes a toll on any sec team. It is much, much more difficult than just having to get up once or twice a year. Yea, Clemson beat Bama down and had a great plan but let's not act like Bama was hundred percent. In the sec, by the time u get to the 8th game u are a MASH unit. Trevor would have to deal with actually being hit week after week by top calibre defensive players. Dabo and Clemson nation can play up that schedule but even they know it's a joke.

SEC West would be a tough slog for any team...SEC East (where Clemson would likely play) not so much outside of UGa

It not the individual games, it the cumulative effect of playing tough competition week after week.

Mississippi state?ahhahahahahahahhahahahaha LSU who can't even score on Bama? You think they would be able to score on Clemson? Hahahaha and they beat Auburn's arse almost yearly. This narrative is hilarious, I agree they may not go undefeated hut they would lose 1 game minimum
