Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

Clemson's not an elite team. I've said that before. But the Tigers aren't mediocre either. FSU has made mediocre teams look like cupcakes in 2013, and on Saturday, they made a good team look mediocre at best. This is a gooooood team, but you probably already knew that by now.

And just imagine how many points FSU could have scored if it actually avoided passing downs. Clemson handled the run pretty well. And gave up 51 points.
