After reaching 11 victories in 2012, Clemson football expects to repeat that performance — if not do even a little better in 2013. The Tigers 11-2 season was their best since the 1981 team went 12-0 and won a national title.
Dabo Swinney and his staff have amassed some serious talent, and they are fresh off a huge 25-24 victory over LSU in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Now Swinney must make sure the Tigers work hard this spring to get back on top of the ACC.
The few slip-ups that Clemson endured in 2012 should be enough to motivate the players to work hard this spring and put them in position this fall to be a serious national title contender.
The Tigers have some holes to fill on the defense, but second-year coordinator Brent Venables is up to the task.
