I am so pleased the Tigernet prognosticators (andI) were wrong in their predictions. The offense will likely be impressive in 2015 if we stay healthy. I just hope Coach Venables can work some magic with the defense (sure wish we got the goose egg).

I was so happy for Cole, his family, his teammates, and coaches & staff. His bowl game performance was a story book ending to a difficult senior season.

Happy New Year to you and Ryan!

Kindest Regards,


Thanks for the kind words. I am extremely excited for the the 2015 season. This offense has a chance to be very good and I don't think we will see a complete disaster on defense. I believe the off-season is one where we will see a lot of positive momentum for the program. Notre Dame and FSU come to Clemson and at this point I think the Tigers have the upper hand in the in-state rivalry again. Great times are ahead for this program.

Hey Mickey, wishing you and your family a wonderful Holiday Season! I was curious about the status of J.D. DavisJ.D. Davis

for the upcoming 2015 season. I hope they all can make a positive impact next year! 


KO Tiger

KO Tiger,
I saw J.D. and Judah the other day and they have gotten much bigger since the fall. Both are good looking kids and are very bright. Both play hard. I think both will redshirt but could play on special teams next season. Oglesby was cleared to enroll in January recently too. I think he could have a role in the offense next season as a slot back and as a running back on certain sets. He is tremendous in the open field. I have not seen him since last year, so I have not seen if he has added bulk.

I was thrilled to see that Cole got the game MVP. He earned it. Much has been said about Stoudt this year and some deservedly so, but to see his performance against Oklahoma was special. He was decisive, confident and ran the offense like he did against Georgia. His legacy may be what he did in the game, but I think more of his legacy will be in his perseverance, refusing to give up. The younger players saw it and is something Dabo can build on. Cole may not be the MVP for the year, but on this night he was and will give Clemson something much more than a bowl victory.


I feel good for the young man and his family. I do believe that you shouldn't hide from the facts and student-athletes are analyzed with their every move. But it had to be hard on a personal level. I know he and his family had to overcome a lot of negative attention and it is nice to see a feel good story. I agree that in the end he will be remembered differently now as a result of the bowl game.
