No one knows how fragile the psyche of a team can be until you see the affects of a big win or big loss. In 2003 we were in sad shape until a win against FSU set us on fire. In 2008 we were riding high, got steamrolled by Bama, and fell apart. Last year these two teams went in totally different directions after this game.
Clemson can definitely win here, we have all the pieces to beat Auburn. But until we see Clemson win this kind of big game under a national spotlight, we won't pick them to do it.
Heres to hoping we're wrong.
