Cole Needs to Lay of the Ho-Ho's

He will be a lean 215 by Kickoff.....

go watch the video...he's lean now. Keep in mind his height...Tajh at 220 was bigger looking than Cole.

He doesn't look a bit fat to me. Glad to see him at this NFL size. He's now a running threat. How can you criticize that kind of work ethic? You didn't see the muscle on this guy? And Leggett at 251. You consider that fat? He will be a force of nature at tight end.

Cole is 6'4", and if he has been working out in the weight room, I hope that he can stay where he is. At 6'4" with a body that's muscle weight. He can operate very well at 230/235 as a dual threat QB.

He is an ideal size for victory .... Go Tigers


Re: Cole Needs to Lay of the Ho-Ho's


Posted: Aug 1, 2014 10:21 AM
 

Did you see his picture? Cole is all muscle. I am sure that he will lose some weight, but not over 10 lbs.

242 as an 18 year old. I think his days at L.B. are numbered.


Re: Korie Rogers


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:10 PM
 

Pretty sure that was Chris Register at 242, not Rogers.


Re: Korie Rogers


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:11 PM
 

I think he will be fine as interior LB. We need big guys stuffing the holes and containing hash to hash and let the if DE's get up the field.


He's only been here 1 summer


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:15 PM
 

All ready 242. Anthony is 244 after being the the weight program for 4 years. I think Register or was it Rogers, is going to be in the 260+ range no problem.


Re: Korie Rogers

Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:29 PM
 

All our LB's seem to have been on a mission---they now
seem to be an intimidating bunch. Kudos to our S&C staff.


Re: Korie Rogers


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:26 PM
 

That is not huge for a division 1 level linebacker. We need big linebackers that can run. But, I guess some folks are never satisfied. We are now a much stronger, physical football team. Are you a Carolina fan?


Really?

someone with a 18% is calling a 98%er a carolina fan. That's rich.

It was Register not Rogers, which makes more sense


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:45 PM
 

Register was recruited as a defensive end.


Re: It was Register not Rogers, which makes more sense


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 9:59 PM
 

> Register was recruited as a defensive end.


No he wasn't...Register was recruited as a MLB and trained with the LB's all spring and summer. Yeargin was recruited as a DE.


Re: Korie Rogers


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:39 PM
 

Stephone Anthony is 244


Anthony has been in the program for 4 years


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:41 PM
 

I wasn't bashing on Rogers or Register (whichever one it was). I'm just going to guess that they are going to outgrow LB and play some DE (which was what a lot of people said when we were recruiting them).


Re: Anthony has been in the program for 4 years


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:56 PM
 

We've got a bunch of big, talented DE's. We've had LB's
in the past who weighed 260 and could run. I can't understand why anyone would think 240 to 250 is too heavy to play linebacker.


Can you read?


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 8:03 PM
 

I said at 18 he is 242 and he hasn't even really been in the weight room and nutrition program at Clemson. He is 8 pounds away from 250. I don't think 240 is too much, but I'm thinking an 18 year old that hasn't been in a college weight program is probably going to be bigger than 250 sooner rather than later.

Re: Korie Rogers

Levon Kirkland played LB a Clemson at 265, and could flat out run. Let's don't mention his distinguished NFL career. Thanks for bringing him up.


Re: Korie Rogers


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 8:45 PM
 

Until we morph to an Alabama, pro-style 3-4 defensive unit, a 265 lb linebacker really doesn't help us. We ask both of our LBs to do a lot as far as coverage is concerned.


Re: Korie Rogers


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 8:59 PM
 

lavonne Kirkland was a multi year All Pro LB at 270. I don't know Korie Rogers' skill set, but I will wait to pass judgement. I expect many think Vic Beasley is not heavy enough to be a good DE, but guess what? See what I mean? It's all relative and has much to do with the guy and the "want to".


Tony Steward?

Pretty sure choice was 211 and Dye was 216, there was


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:25 PM
 

one back I couldn't tell who it was right before Dye.

I think it was Register at 242 not Rogers, and I thought Wiggins was 211.


Re: Pretty sure choice was 211 and Dye was 216, there was


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:35 PM
 

CJ Fuller at 216 heaviest back...Dye was 214


Re: Pretty sure choice was 211 and Dye was 216, there was


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 8:00 PM
 

Don't we have a guy (former baseball player) who goes about 230 and has speed? Can't think of his name, but heard that he really looked good in the spring game.


Re: Pretty sure choice was 211 and Dye was 216, there was

[1]
Posted: Jul 31, 2014 8:12 PM
 

Kurt Fleming...expect to see him in some form this year, if you missed it, check out his run from the spring game. I also wouldn't be surprised to see Choice play, checking in at 211. Gallman at 209 is encouraging. I'm impressed with our RB corps and am expecting bigger things from them this year. Go Tigers!

Re: Pretty sure choice was 211 and Dye was 216, there was


Posted: Aug 1, 2014 11:34 PM
 

Dye 214, CJ Fuller 216, & Kurt Fleming 233.

For a guy injured his whole time at Clemson, Dye is a beast.

He will be a beast.


Re: Pretty sure choice was 211 and Dye was 216, there was


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 8:27 PM
 

He was pretty much untouched on that run. Made a little easier by a mistake by Kearse if I recall. I'm glad he has the speed to bust a longer run but any of our backs could have done and most would have taken it to the house.


DeShaun Watson

Went from 188 in HS to 204 today. Good gains for just a few months.


Re: DeShaun Watson


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:31 PM
 

So glad to see that. Reduces his risk of injury.


Re: New Story: The Big Weigh-In

Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:28 PM
 

Is that a big gain for Maverick? He seemed like on of our smaller linemen to me in the spring game. Baker at 185 is encouraging too.


Re: New Story: The Big Weigh-In


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:33 PM
 

I think Maverick has the frame to put on another 15 to 20 pounds easily.


i remember when Fridge checked in at 310 - was the beast

now just normal???


Re: i remember when Fridge checked in at 310 - was the beast


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:35 PM
 

Yup. Overall, I was really pleased these gains that to me represent work ethic. I think we are going to field a bit, tough, physical team.


Re: i remember when Fridge checked in at 310 - was the beast


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:37 PM
 

Excuse the typo. I meant "big, tough"....

After practice one day his senior year I was on the scale and Fridge said "boy you need some of this". He then tipped the scales at 363 lbs...


Re: i remember when Fridge checked in at 310 - was the beast


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:39 PM
 

Unfortunately, he couldn't control his weight. He got fat. Prematurely ended his NFL career.


Re: i remember when Fridge checked in at 310 - was the beast


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:46 PM
 

I still am astounded at Leggett at 251. He has obviously
grown up, developed a work ethic, and, I think will be one of the top tight ends in the country. And Seckinger is what now 240 plus. Love it.


Re: New Story: The Big Weigh-In

Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:43 PM
 

Feel really good about this.

Our LBs and Safeties just stick out as big brawlers.

Wasn't it only 3 years ago when we didn't have a single LB who tipped the scales at above ~220 lbs?


Re: New Story: The Big Weigh-In


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 8:06 PM
 

I share your feelings. It's good to have some bruisers out there now. I don't know this for sure, but heard that we brought in a S&C guy from Alabama who is now a top assistant----and will kick butt and names. Just what I've heard. Also, who is the big back?


"Heard?" Surely you mean "herd."

VERY happy to see Battle at 285.


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 7:56 PM
 

Thought he was still around 270. Ten more pounds would be ideal IMO. GO TIGERS!

I agree, since he will play a key role in protecting our QB's. Good to see Zac Brooks at 199. Excellent athlete.


How about Spencer Region?


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 8:22 PM
 

Seeing that he has dropped his weight to "333," does anybody have any info that points to Region making a decision to contribute to the program this fall? After all, the hour glass is running out of sand.


Re: How about Spencer Region?


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 8:52 PM
 

As I understand it, he was the #8 offensive lineman coming out of HS. He seems to have all the physical tools, but the questions seem to lie in the area of commitment and work ethic. I don't think he's even on the depth chart on the OL. Wasted talent is always a shame. I hope he proves me wrong.


Re: How about Spencer Region?


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 9:53 PM
 

I thought he had a real strong resume coming out of high school. since then I also thought he lacked commitment. Thanks for clarifying. Like you, I hope he makes us both eat crow. We can sure use him.

Reader can hold the line while Jarrett attacks.


Re: Going to go really well with Jarrett


Posted: Jul 31, 2014 8:14 PM
 

Interestingly enough based on their size, I feel like Jarrett makes a better anchor and Reader is a better penetrator. Stats won't show that because of the discrepancy in snap counts, but I feel as though that's been my observation.

Not that it matters in our scheme -- the 2i tech and 3 tech are basically interchangeable and do different stuffs based on play call.

We're in good hands.


Re: Going to go really well with Jarrett

Thanks. to me that's pretty big for a RB. Our RB's may be one of the "sleepers" on this team.


If I'm not mistaken he's actually lost weight. Pretty sure

nasty weaponry coming out of the TE position this fall. Reads like a pretty stout team overall.


Re: Holy smokes. Leggett at 251? That's gonna be some


Posted: Aug 1, 2014 12:12 AM
 

Guys, is it just me or my imagination. Across the board it seems like guys have added between 5 and 10 % to their total weight! and it is not fat. The muscle density, tightness, and hardness seem to have improved. Either guys got more serious, Batson changed some things up, or the overall work ethic has changed. Maybe Dabo talked to Batson and said, "for us to get where we want to be as a team we need to step it up, get bigger, faster, stronger, and play up to these bigger teams. A few years ago (maybe 2011) as much as I didn't want to admit it I thought SC's S&C had far surpassed us. Their guys just looked harder and more defined. I think the lightbulb has turned on and the whole mentality has changed. I expect big things out of this team. I think the defense will keep us in close games. I think the secondary is gonna lay the wood, I think the linebackers are going to absolutely destroy some guys, I think the DL is going to wreak havoc, and I think at the end of the year Clemson is going to go get the respect no one is wanting to give.

Example of what I'm talking about. Look at Jadar Johnson at around 205 as a DB. Look at Jay Jay McCollough. Is he still considered a threat as a RB or strictly a TE? Another example, look at how think Grady was . Imagine trying to get by him. Our RB's!? Big! Not Alabama big overall, but some big guys. CJ Fuller, Choice, Dye, Gallman, Davidson, Howard, Brooks, and Fleming. Stacked.

Did anyone else just sit there watching that video in excitement and anticipation like me?


Man, CJ "Cannonball" Davidson really punched it up big


Posted: Aug 1, 2014 1:11 AM
 

time. He added over ten pounds to top 200 for that small, low, powerful frame. And Joe Gore losing 20 to get quicker at tackle. Crowder shed a chunk too, from 345 to 322.

These kids have definitely bought in.


Re: Man, CJ "Cannonball" Davidson really punched it up big


Posted: Aug 1, 2014 3:52 AM
 

Yes I too am very excited about this team we are fielding this year!!!!!!!!!!!!


Re: Man, CJ "Cannonball" Davidson really punched it up big


Posted: Aug 1, 2014 4:49 AM
 

This team seems like they've really bought in to the s&c/ nutrition programs this summer. The freshmen db's especially look like they've bulked up and are ready to jam some jawja receivers. Offensive line looks great to me. I like Cole with some stoutness to him. We need him to stay healthy. The rbs are mostly tipping 200, so hopefully Stoudt won't have to run much. MLBs look strong. OLBs look lean. DL looks like a group of monsters. They all look the part of a major program. Good job Tigers. Y'all are going to be ready to bust some heads.

243.14 lbs. This was only 64 so not sure how much the rest of the roster would bring the average down. This seems like one of the biggest teams we have ever had. I found this article that talks about the heaviest football teams being some of the best. Interesting
