The Clemson question. Now that the home of the most exciting 25 seconds in all of college football is also home to the defending national champions the question for fans and foes alike is simple, what next? Will the Tigers build a dynasty? Does Dabo have what it takes to make his Clemson team a perennial powerhouse? Or will the Tigers wander through the woods for another 30 years before they find their way back to the top of and the Mountain. With the early, though expected, departure of Deshaun Watson for the NFL, the question is an interesting one. Replacing the best quarterback in school history will be no easy task, but the Tigers are stocked with young talent at QB. While the quarterback competition is developing quietly, demand for answers will almost surely grow as the season nears.
College football teams are thankful to have one reliable running back that can carry the load and keep the defense off balance. If they have two… opposing defenses are in for a long day. The luxury of having an effective running back tandem not only benefits the offense in the 4th quarter, but also benefits the team at the end of the season with the workload being split up. These are the top five running back tandems in the SEC this upcoming season, and it is not a surprise that most of these teams on the list are predicted to make noise this year.
