Back in the Saddle

Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson was back to his usual, excellent self Tuesday afternoon as the Tigers opened practice for the 2015 season. How is his knee? Will he try and protect himself from injury?

Observations from Clemson's first practice

Thanks to head coach Dabo Swinney, the Clemson media got to stay for an entire practice, something that hasn’t happened around Clemson in years.

The Big Weigh-In: The numbers are in

The Clemson football team returned to the WestZone Monday afternoon for the annual weigh-in. Practice for the 2015 season starts Tuesday.


Swagger
Later this afternoon the Clemson football team will make the trek from the locker rooms in the WestZone to the practice fields, crossing Perimeter Road and unloading in front of the indoor practice facility. The familiar clack-clack of cleats on concrete will fill the air as the team files onto the practice field for the official beginning of the college football season. And they’ll do it with confidence.

Unfinished Business
The Clemson Tigers have unfinished business. The Clemson football team has been whisker close to elite status over the last four seasons, but another ACC Championship and a chance to play for the big prize have eluded head coach Dabo Swinney and his program. Can this be the season?


Film Study
Jeff Scott has been around football his entire life, and he knows the importance of film study. How did Scott and Tony Elliott prepare for the 2015 season? What has the transition been like?
