NCAA Football: Fiesta Bowl-Ohio State vs Clemson Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

From this perch atop college football, a common refrain we’re hearing outside these four walls is “does Clemson have staying power after Deshaun Watson?”.

The answer lies somewhere between the Clemson Tigers’ circumstances (outlook: rosy), and the strength of programs which seek to challenge us for titles (less clear).

Ryan’s gone in-depth on the latter topic, through a 2017 lens, and taking a long view toward the next decade and a half of the programs which will define the college football elite.

We hope you enjoy the in-depth discussion. This was a long one, so maybe bump up the playback speed?

Time Marks:

  • (5:43) CFB's elite programs through 2031
  • (33:48) Championship droughts
  • (40:08) 2017 Natty contenders
  • (61:18) Clemson's outlook

What's a Pawcast?

It's a semi-regular podcast (we promise!), 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.
