Beat writers unanimously pick Clemson to beat up on Syracuse

first_imgSyracuse (3-3, 1-1 Atlantic Coast) kicks off with No. 2 Clemson (6-0, 4-0) at 7 p.m. in the Carrier Dome. The Tigers beat the Orange 54-0 last year in Death Valley. Clemson has not won an ACC game by fewer than 14 points and won at then-hyped Louisville 47-21.Friday night’s SU-CU game will air on ESPN.Tomer Langer (5-1)Makes senseClemson 44, Syracuse 24Earlier this week, quarterback Eric Dungey said he liked the fact that nobody thought they’d be able to beat Clemson. And while it would be a good story for Syracuse to win this game, I need to throw my hat in with the group of people who don’t think the Orange will pull it off. Clemson’s defense is just too tough for SU to consistently crack, and if the Orange can’t move the ball it’ll give the Tigers short fields on offense. I think Syracuse manages to score by aggressively going for it on fourth downs, but Clemson should pull away.Matthew Gutierrez (4-2)Eye of the TigerClemson 45, Syracuse 17AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe defending national champs prove to be too much for Syracuse, which only narrowly beat a fledgling Pittsburgh team last week. As head coach Dino Babers said this week, Clemson’s front is “O-M-G.” So is the rest of the team. Clemson has its way in the primetime matchup.Joe Bloss (4-2)As it should beClemson 31, Syracuse 20Eric Dungey and this Syracuse offense can do some very nice things when they have the time. But that necessary time will not be granted against a Clemson defensive line that has accounted for 14.5 of the Tigers’ 22 sacks. It will occasionally get ugly. Feel free to look away when it does. A solid Syracuse defense won’t let up 54 points like it did a year ago, but it won’t be able to contain Kelly Bryant and his weapons to a score Dungey and Co. can match. As it has been in Syracuse’s losses thus far, the better team will win. Comments Published on October 13, 2017 at 1:16 pm Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Campaign tactics discourage voters

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Finally in 2000 – because I thought it was important (and have since been proved right) – I voted for the “lesser of two evils” rather than the best candidate. And, glory-be! My candidate actually got the most votes. And he – still – didn’t win. It may take nearly a quarter-century of having it shoved in my face, but eventually even I can recognize “pointless.” I haven’t voted since. – David We asked, and you responded. Why didn’t you vote? The responses we received were thoughtful and well-reasoned. Here is a sampling of the postings on our vote blog: I used to vote religiously. From 18 on, I carefully studied my booklet, researched, and voted for the best candidate available. Net result: I elected exactly nobody. Not one City Councilman. Not one Mayor. No Sheriffs, Governors, State Reps, Senators, Representatives or City Attorneys. And especially no Presidents. I didn’t vote because I wasn’t informed enough to make an educated decision. Way too many obscure people on the ballot to keep track of. – John S. I did vote, yet sometimes I did not vote. If a candidate harassed me by tying up my telephone line more than three times I pulled my vote for him. – Patrick Short I did vote; however, I chose not to vote for the 30th State Senate District race. Candidates Ron Calderon and Rudy Bermudez spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in the effort to fill constituents’ mail boxes with ridiculous amounts of mail. All with the same poll tested messages that gave a small glimpse into the candidates. California is in serious need of campaign finance reform. There is no need for state senate candidates to spend that much money on this campaign. – Adam Rogers I voted. It cost me 30 dollars, 2 cabs and a lot of frustration. I have asked for an absentee ballot for 3 years and have never received it. To top it off, I received 52 pieces of mail in 3 days all regarding a candidate I would not vote for if he was the last Democrat on earth! And he has apparently won. I will think hard if I want to spend the money, trek off to some obscure voting area, and have some idiot I don’t support win. – T.
