Hey, unfortunately for you, the Sammy Watkins, CJ Spillers, Tony Stewards, and Travis Blanks of the world will continue to leave the state of Florida for Purple & Orange and all that Clemson has to offer that Miami simply does not. You have it all backwards, bro. Clemson doesn't have to pay players to come here; Miami has to pay players to keep them away.
This is just the beginning, R&R. Get used to it. Clemson won the ACC and is on its way to a BCS game despite having an EXTREMELY young & inexperienced team. Wait till all of last year's talented recruiting class joins the mix. Plus we currently have the #5 2012 class according to ESPN, and we still have the #1 DT, #2 RB, and #1 & #2 LB in the hunt.

"To me, there are three things we all should do every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And Number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy.
"If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special."

They just said on the radio 2 minutes ago that somehow WVU just scored another TD.
Last time west virginia scored that much was at a family reunion.
Let the Clem$on investigations commence.
http://www.fitsnews.com/2012/01/06/s...oper-benefits/The family of a Clemson University football “superstar” allegedly received improper benefits from a Florida hotel executive with close ties to former Tigers’ assistant coach Brad Scott, multiple sources tell FITS.
The benefits – which reportedly included free lodging at the luxurious Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort and Spa in Fort Myers, Florida – were allegedly provided to the player’s family in 2010 while he was a Clemson recruit.
Multiple employees at the resort have confirmed that the player’s family was put up at the hotel for an extended period in 2010. They have also confirmed reports that the hotel’s general manager – Cory Clark – bragged about the arrangement.
Attempts to reach Clark and Clemson regarding these reports were unsuccessful. Our sources have yet to name the player whose family allegedly received these improper benefits, but the resort in question is located in the hometown of Clemson All-American freshman wideout Sammy Watkins – and Watkins is the only player on the Tigers’ roster from Fort Myers. Also, with due respect to the other Sunshine Staters on Clemson’s roster – Watkins is the only one who can reasonably lay claim to the “superstar” mantle.
Scott – a former Florida State assistant and University of South Carolina head coach – retired as Clemson’s offensive line coach in February of 2011 to take an administrative position within the Clemson football program. Sources have confirmed that Scott and Clark met at a Hootie and the Blowfish “Monday After the Masters” golf tournament several years ago.
Our sources also say that the NCAA recently began looking into the allegations but has yet to decide whether to open a formal investigation. Obviously gifts – including free or reduced lodging – to family members of college prospects are expressly forbidden by the NCAA.
The NCAA supposedly is on James Davis shopping his brother Mike Davis, with the always dirty Clemson being involved to nobody's surprise. How long before the wheels fall off?
Prediction(zero inside information): Clemson gets the near death penalty, UO gets the Auburn treatment. I realize this is obvious, but Oregon is basically daring the NCAA to do something, and those nutless wonders do nothing.
