One common phrase often heard around the Clemson football team from head coach Dabo Swinney is “next man up” and that special phrase became a reality last Saturday night in Louisville when safety Tanner Muse was ejected from the game and Isiah Simmons' number was called to take his place.
Clemson hosts Boston College Saturday afternoon in Death Valley, and for the 10th time the teams will play for a trophy. The Boston College Gridiron Club began sponsoring the O’Rourke-McFadden Trophy in 2008. Clemson has won eight of the nine years the trophy has been awarded.
For a lot of teams, Saturday could be seen as a potential problem. You know, a team coming off a big-time win and with another big-time matchup coming up next week. It might be hard for some teams to stay focused on the task at hand: a home date in a mid-afternoon game against a team that appears to be overmatched.
On the way back from Louisville Sunday, we stopped at a restaurant in Knoxville to listen to head coach Dabo Swinney’s weekly teleconference, and Swinney mentioned that the Tigers were as healthy as could be expected through three games. That all changed in just a few days.
As everyone knows, our fleet of vehicles were already in Louisville for the Clemson game last weekend after we hauled in several loads of neck braces that were supposed to be a giveaway for Cardinal fans. It turned into a gold mine for the Prophet.
