AUDIO: Dabo Swinney after practice audio


CLEMSON, SC - The Clemson Tigers held their second preseason practice on Saturday afternoon and early evening on the practice fields behind the Jervey Athletic Center. The Tigers worked for two hours and 45 minutes in varying weather that included some light rain showers that cooled off the players.


"It was another day of installation," said Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney, who will lead his Tigers into Death Valley for the season opener against Troy on September 3. "We have gone over a lot of installation over these first two practices. That will be the routine, install, then look at the video and make corrections. The goal is to learn from the mistakes and get better each day."


Part of the process of reviewing the video includes watching some quarterback helmet cam. For the first time, Clemson quarterbacks are wearing a camera during practice that helps Tiger coaches more accurately review what the Clemson quarterbacks see and do when they are running the offense.


"The good thing about the helmet cam is that you can see and hear," said Swinney. "You can hear the calls by the quarterback. Previously you really weren't sure what the quarterback called. Was there a problem in that the wrong call was made? But this camera gives us that information and allows you to follow the quarterback's reads throughout the play.


"You can only watch a little of it at a time, though because it is like watching video of a rollercoaster ride. You might get sick to your stomach after a while."


The Tigers will take Sunday off, then go back to practice next Monday and Tuesday in shells. The Tigers will put on the full uniform for the first time next Wednesday.


All practices are closed to the public. The team will hold its annual Fan Appreciation Day on Sunday, August 21 from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM.
