    My wife was born and raised in Clemson, so I married into that fanbase. I couldn't wear a Clemson shirt to the grocery store 2 years ago without a dozen people cheering for them.
    Only 2 trips to the championship and now everyone wants them to lose?

    I could name two dozen teams I’d rather see lose.

    Well, tweedyfanjen and I are South Carolina alums/fans, so our despise of Clemson runs far deeper than these last 2 years.

    And my condolences for your in-laws.

    Me too, but he's been out of coaching a long time. Just a puzzling hire.

    It's a pretty big rivalry if you haven't already noticed. I almost disowned my dad last year because he pulled for Clemson in the playoffs.

    My hatred runs deep for Auburn and Tennessee.

    I actually had hope for an Auburn win this weekend because I didn't think we would get in if they lost.

    knowing what I know now... I hate myself for doing it.

    You understand, but most don't. For the most part, outside of the state, not too many people realize the SC-Clemson rivalry is as heated as it is. I was traveling through Texas last week and upon seeing my SC hat, a Longhorn fan asked if I was excited that a team from my state was in the CFP. I then had to ask if he would be happy if Texas A&M made it. He replied "Hell no. Longhorn fans hate A&M." I informed him that was the nature of our rivalry.

    I read an article on what the BCS rankings would be compared to the CFP final rankings.  Pretty close to each other with the biggest difference  Georgia being #2 instead of Oklahoma.

    I didn't realize the anti-Clemson comments were coming from SC fans.
    I wasn't into college football at all until I married. It was a whole new world. And the rivalry is brutal.

    Happy to see him leave the conference -- he appears to be a competent coach and I prefer that other Pac12 teams also have incompetent coaching staffs.

    Welcome to Tallahassee, Coach Taggart! I like it.

    3rd job in the last calendar year.

    he had to can their best receiver (who came to Utah) over a DUI, just to take the heat off the shitshow he brought to eugene. bad hire.

    • Call it money machines or whatever you want. You and I agree on a lot of things but this cannot be one of them. A dude quit coaching a schook to coach another. This move was highly anticipated. I probably heard of the rumors some 2 weeks ago +. In doing so, he received a SUBSTANTIAL guaranteed pay increase. 
       
      I just left a company that paid above the median annual income and treated me very well personally, for a job that will pay me nearly double. I don't think that makes me a sellout, but rather a guy that wants to improve his (and his girlfriend's) quality of life.
      I assume you weren’t already making $45 million at your old job? If I took a job with a 67% pay increase right now, it would be nothing less than an absolute blessing. I’m struggling to make ends meet and going further into debt each month. Not, taking a better paying job doesn’t make everyone a sellout. But you and I aren’t making 8 figures.  If you can’t survive off $45 million, you’re doing something wrong.

    Welcome to Tallahassee, Coach Taggart! I like it.
    Okay okay, now you have confused me here. 1 guy leaves his job (coaching the team you root for to coach another team) to take another for a substantial pay increase and he is a sell out?

    Meanwhile, a guy leaves a job (coaching some team to come coach the team you root for) to take another job at a substantial pay increase and you are welcoming him with open arms? You're killing me Smalls!

    Go Cubs!

    Just don't let Taggart tweet about upcoming bowl games.
    2012 - tweeted about WKU's bowl game, 3 days later he's head coach at USF
    2016 - tweeted about USF's bowl game, 2 days later he's head coach at Oregon
    2017 - tweeted about being excited about finding out which bowl Oregon will participate, now head coach at Florida State

    Granted, most coaches tweet/talk about their excitement for their team being in a bowl game. He has no control when someone will offer a better job, it's just bad timing. Funny, but still bad timing.

    looks like Tennessee is going to take our D coordinator.

    Well he's a better hire than Shiano or Leach.

    well if you like a running game and no passing, Army/Navy game would be right up your alley.  only ONE completion (two passing attempts by both teams).  About 500 combined yards rushing so far.
