Clemson is flirting with a Clemsoning, so it must officially be Fall

The Tigers are ahead by a field goal, but there's a smell of Clemsoning in the air around Boston.

Sure, Clemson is leading Boston College 24-21 at lovely Chestnut Hill, but that's how these things always start.

A 17-7 Tigers lead evaporated in a manner that most leading college football scientists would liken to "Clemsoning" on a 14-point BC swing in the second quarter. Tajh Boyd would do his best to mask the unraveling with a 4-yard TD pass to Brandon Ford with 23 seconds remaining in the half, but we know better.

While evidence of an actual Clemsoning is still unconfirmed, there are environmental signals: The Eagles trail the vaunted Clemson offense by a single yard, 257-256, are leading the time of possession battle 16:20 to 13:40, are winning the turnover battle 0-1 and, likely the most potential Clemsoning-y stat of all, are 2-of-3 on 4th-down conversions in one half of football. Because that's normal for a Frank Spaziani offense.

You've been officially warned. Prepare accordingly.
