With the release of the College Football Playoff committee’s first rankings of 2017, so begins the scenario guesswork and resume stick measuring we’ve come to know and love as the calendar’s page flips to November.
Your defending champion Clemson Tigers find themselves in a familiar position, with this being their 13th consecutive week among the top 4 in the CFP rankings.
And they’re back in the win column after dismantling yet another Paul Johnson Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets triple-option offense, and delivering a rejuvenated offensive performance on a rain-soaked Saturday to emerge with a 24-10 result at home.
This week brings what should be a far tougher challenge, in the de facto ACC Atlantic championship game vs. the NC State Wolfpack. Time will tell if the Pack’s psyches are as bruised as their players’ bodies coming off the pounding they took at Notre Dame. Things bode well for a rested, hungry, and motivated Tigers team looking for another exclamation point victory as they jockey for position among the nation’s best teams.
In this week’s show, we covered these topics and even fit in some recruiting chatter.
Enjoy the show!

What's a Pawcast?
It's a weekly podcast, hosted by three CU alumni — Ben, Cody, and Nick — who discuss Clemson Tigers athletics 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, SB Nation CFB media personalities, former Clemson players & coaches, and a mixed bag of opponent school podcasters, fans, and radio guys.
To check out past shows, visit our Soundcloud page, where you can also subscribe to stream future podcasts. Come for the banter and hastily-formed takes, stay for the Gamecock jokes and microbrew tips. We also post a variety of links on our Twitter and Facebook pages. Check back here at STS for future shows, or subscribe within your favorite podcast app.
