Clemson Football: The Over/Under
This article is the next in a series of articles in which the Confidential selects the over/under for football wins in 2014. We’ll take a cursory look at the schedule and determine what we think is the point where folks will struggle to select “over” or “under.” We hope people will share their comments as to “why” they are going over/under. If you disagree with our over/under choice, of course, feel free to let us know too. The 14th team up: Clemson. We are going with an over/under of 9.5.

Likely wins: South Carolina State, North Carolina, NC State, @ Boston College, Syracuse, @ Wake Forest, @ Georgia Tech, Georgia State
Toss-ups: Louisville & South Carolina
Clemson has lost too much to slot them for a double-digit win season. Yet. We’ll see how the Tigers reload. The good news is that Louisville and South Carolina are home. Clemson should be able to take one of those games. Can they get both? That is the issue. We’ll give Clemson an over/under of 9.5.
