Yahoo Sports doesn’t like the odds of the Tigers

Despite the amount of talent the 2021 Clemson football team will possess, Yahoo Sports doesn’t like the Tigers’ chances of making it through the CFB playoff semifinals for a second straight season.

Yahoo Sports Bowl projections published for the 2021 season and Clemson made it to the CFB playoffs, but nothing more.

The post had Clemson in the Orange Bowl taking on the Oklahoma Sooners. On the other side of the range, it was Alabama and Ohio State in the Cotton Bowl. The end prediction? Alabama vs Oklahoma for the National Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Clemson’s football team will have a chip on their shoulder ahead of the 2021 season

Have you heard of a single national analyst at this point predicting that Clemson will win the national championship?

We have heard analysts talk about Alabama. We have heard them mention Oklahoma and Georgia. We even got an Ohio State listing, but it looks like the conversation ends when they get to Clemson.

It’s not that analysts don’t think the Tigers will be in the mix – although some predict a BFC playoff without a Clemson in 2021 – it’s that they don’t think Dabo Swinney and Co. has the ability to pass the semi-finals.

The embarrassing loss to Ohio State – and even LSU the year before to a lesser extent – weighs on the perception of this Clemson football schedule and this has led many to calm down on the Tigers and believe the program begins to regress.

What does it mean? Dabo Swinney is going to have a lot of motivational tools and talking points for this season. In my opinion, we’re going to see the most focused Clemson football team we’ve seen since 2018 this season.

Here’s a look at the Six Bowl New Years screenings for the release:

  • Sugar Bowl: Iowa State vs. Georgia
  • Rose Bowl: Wisconsin vs. Oregon
  • Fiesta Bowl: LSU vs. Notre-Dame
  • Peach Bowl: UCF vs. Texas A&M

It is clear that the author is not very high on ACC. They have North Carolina up to the Holiday Bowl and Virginia Tech is the next highest ACC team outside of Clemson in the Sun Bowl. Miami, a preseason top 15 team, is screened in the Gator Bowl against Auburn.
