ESPN host Peter Burns posed an interesting question on Twitter on Thursday: if there was a college version of “Hard Knocks” in 2018, which schools would make the most interesting subjects?
Burns ranks Clemson No. 1. His full list:
If we had a College version of Hard Knocks this would be my Top 5 picks for the 2018 season:
** Left Bama off this list as there’s no way Saban would greenlight it. **

It’s easy to see why Clemson would be entertaining. Dabo Swinney is one of the most successful and charismatic coaches in the game, and the Tigers’ defensive line could dominate the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. There could also be a quarterback battle between Kelly Bryant and Trevor Lawrence.
Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan Wolverines just appeared on Amazon Prime’s “All or Nothing” which was similar to Hard Knocks. Perhaps Clemson will make an appearance on that type of show in the coming years.
