Whether you pronounce it "proh-gruhm" or "pro-gram", the Clemson Tigers football team find themselves in uncharted territory heading into the 2016 season. A #2 Coaches' poll ranking, and a mountain of pre-season hype accompanied the team into their first week of Fall Camp. To repeat last year's success, and clear the final hurdle, they'll need contributions from first-year players, particularly those whose Tiger Stripe cards (do y'all still use those?) are hot off the presses.

On this week's show, we discussed the potential of this bumper crop of a freshman class, thoughts on the team's weigh-in and potential breakout players, the end of disrespect for our team, and a monster DE commitment out of Virginia.

Enjoy the show!

What's a Pawcast? It's a semi-regular podcast, hosted by three CU alumni — Ben, Cody, and Nick — who analyze current Clemson Tigers events from a fan's perspective, and try to predict the future. Because we're far from experts, we farm out that part of the show. Past and future guests include Shakin' the Southland writers, CFB media personalities, former Clemson players & coaches, and a mixed bag of opponent school podcasters, fans, and radio guys.
