The Football Over-Unders for 2015: Clemson
This article is another in a series of articles in which the Confidential opines regarding the over/under for football wins in 2015. 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 next team up: Clemson. We are going with an over/under of 10 regular season wins.
- September 5 vs Wofford
- September 12 vs Appalachian State
- September 17 @ Louisville
- October 3 vs Notre Dame
- October 10 vs Georgia Tech
- October 17 vs. Boston College
- October 24 @ Miami
- October 31 @ NC State
- November 7 vs Florida State
- November 14 @ Syracuse
- November 21 vs Wake Forest
- November 28 @ South Carolina
Likely losses: One of Notre Dame/Florida State, one of Louisville/South Carolina
Likely wins: Wofford, Appalachian State, BC, Syracuse, Wake Forest
Summary: Clemson has an interesting schedule, with two gimmes to start the season and develop confidence–unlike the Georgia games of recent years. And 5 of the first 6 are home games. This means that only 2 of the final 6 are home games… and those 2 include a game against Florida State. We think that Clemson will lose one of the Notre Dame/Florida State home games, as well as one of the Louisville/South Carolina games. Of course, Clemson could lose all four or win all four. We are going to eschew the .5 in the win total, as 9.5 seems low and 10.5 seems too high. In any event, look out for the Clemson Tigers this year, as the Confidential goes with an over-under of 10 wins.
What do you think? Over or under? Let us know.

Heart says over, mind says under. There’s just something about Clemson more than any other team that makes then underachieve. I’ll take the under
Yeah, I could see under too. But I also could see Clemson put it together this year. The QB is there. If he can stay healthy.
