During Saturday’s ESPN College Football GameDay, the crew engaged in a lively discussion about the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and who will emerge victorious this season. Pat McAfee, a prominent member of the crew, expressed his faith in the Clemson Tigers and their potential to dominate the conference once again.

"That being said, seven out of the last eight ACC titles come from the Clemson Tigers,” said McAfee. “There is a reason they are at the top of the mountain. You don’t just fall there. I think Cade Klubnik was put in in some very terrible situations last year, backed up, fourth quarter, third quarter in relief of D.J. Uiagalelei who is out at Oregon State."

McAfee acknowledged the challenging circumstances that Cade Klubnik, the Tigers' quarterback, faced last season. Despite being thrust into difficult situations, Klubnik showcased flashes of brilliance. McAfee believes that under the guidance of new offensive coordinator Garrett Riley, Klubnik will soar to new heights.

I think Cade Klubnik with Garrett Riley is going to be a match made in heaven. If you watch Cade play, there are some flashes of real greatness, and I think Garrett will be able to bring that out not just in Cade, but also in the rest of the Clemson team, who are five-stars everywhere,said McAfee.

The Tigers' decision to bring in Garrett Riley as their new offensive coordinator is seen as a crucial move. With his expertise and guidance, the Clemson offense is expected to return to its former glory. McAfee's optimism about the partnership between Klubnik and Riley reflects the high expectations surrounding the team.

As the Clemson Tigers embark on their journey to reclaim the ACC title, all eyes will be on Cade Klubnik. His potential, combined with the expertise of Garrett Riley, sets the stage for an exciting season ahead. Will the Tigers continue their reign atop the ACC? Only time will tell, but one thing is for certain: Cade Klubnik is ready to make his mark.
