Clemson/Alabama comparison the past three years.

What the last two charts show is how Clemson typically overachieves above its statistical profile when it faces elite level competition. I call this the “Genius Kid Syndrome.” The Tigers do what they have to do to beat the opponent and no more. Where the other elite teams dominate mediocre teams, Clemson doesn’t do that as much.  Often there are teams that are the other way around. They show the ability to dominate sub-par teams but have yet to prove that they can win games at the highest level.
