This weekend went very well for the Tigers if I do say so myself. Clemson welcomed Dave Doeren and his puppies to Death Valley and, after a whole lot of barking from their players in the week leading up to the game, they left with tails tucked between their legs as they got dragged up and down the field to the tune of 41-7. Clemson fans certainly relished the comfortable victory that they had been seeking over the Pack. As if that wasn’t enough, they got to watch the Buckeyes get thoroughly beaten by Purdue in the night game slot. It wasn’t a close loss either. Several times Ohio State had an opportunity to keep it close, but Purdue just kept scoring. Their sorrow shall be featured prominently, I assure you. The Shamecocks were idle this weekend, but still took the L as their second favorite team got crushed 41-7.

Godzilla looks more adept at tackling than the Buckeyes did.

The Internet is THE BEST.
As I said last year after the Iowa game: everything is still in front of the Buckeyes. Gotta get better and get after Sparty and TUN.

Everything is in front of them, including a few more Ls and the Outback Bowl.
So… this too is a legal block? Ok. Just tell us in advance who is going to be given the win so we don’t waste 4 hours of our lives, NCAA. #OSUvsPUR #Buckeyes #BuckeyeNation #OSUvsPurdue #osu pic.twitter.com/wteEmbTXZ8

Lol yes, that holding call was the difference between losing and not.

This makes me very happy
We really don’t wanna tweet the score, but it’s our obligation.

Halftime: Full steam ahead in the second half.

Maybe they should have used a different form of locomotion? Diesel? Electric?

So basically you handed your boyfriend two Ls in one night?

It’ll get better soon.

Maybe they changed their minds?
ESPN is giving NC State a 10 percent chance of beating Clemson, so naturally State fans are expecting a win and will be depressed for months if we don’t. Wouldn’t have it any other way. #BeatClemson

Pretty sure that’s exactly what happened.
— TerrKish (@TLKoontz) October 16, 2018
That shit was NOT happening this year.

Clemson fans ARE a bunch of nerds.
Clemson news outlets are claiming Doeren is inciting violence on the field Saturday by saying we need to tackle their quarterback. To be fair, this is the guy who is going to be tackling their players. I would be scared too if I were clemson. #BeatClemson pic.twitter.com/A266KwBViK

All I’m saying is don’t be a fan after this game tomorrow. #BEATClemson
— Jerod Fernandez (@J4nando) October 19, 2018
I don’t think that’s going to be an issue….
NC State has controlled the last THREE games against Clemson, yet every year we folded late in the end Clemson finished the game stronger. Veteran players and this coaching staff has said they take getting over the hump again Clemson personally. #BeatClemson
— WolfpackNation (@NCSUFans) October 14, 2018
Now you know what it feels like to get 100% of Clemson’s attention instead of being a trap game.

That may have just been some bad cheese that you had.

How’d that work for you?
Dexter Lawrence will never be Bradley Chubb. #BeatClemson
— WolfpackNation (@NCSUFans) October 19, 2018
No. He’s already much better.
Saturday is going to be a great day #BeatClemson
— Benjamin Ormond (@BigBenjamin1224) October 14, 2018
Finley’s had 2 weeks to prepare for Clemson’s defense, Lawrence has had 2 weeks to dream about Pratt. LET’S GO BOYS!!! #BEATCLEMSON
— Mitchell (@Mitchell_F9) October 20, 2018
After watching the game, I don’t think Lawrence was dreaming about Pratt but Finley may have spent all two weeks watching Clemson’s D Line do work.
— Kevin Farrell (@klf_nc) October 15, 2018
Nobody on that depth chart has ever beaten Clemson.
We love you Lee but there’s a rumor going round that Clemson may lose a big game this weekend. Go Wolfpack #BeatClemson ????
— Doug Yoder (@pdouglasyoder) October 17, 2018
You shouldn’t spread rumors that you know aren’t true.
#16 NC State upsets #3 clemson today!!! Ryan Finley lights up their suspect secondary and Germaine Pratt handles travis etienne. #BeatClemson
— Greg Lee (@GregLee_5) October 20, 2018
Neither of these happened. Etienne had 3 touchdowns to Finley’s 0.
