That Michigan twitter account is getting happy.

this is why taking 2 OLINE a year

Mar 19, 2014, 6:32 PM

and converting TEs and DTs is massive mistake . I hope many of you are ready for 2 disappointing seasons because our recruiting strategy has really backed us into a corner. Speaking of did anyone catch Strelows article on Oline recruiting this week?

flag link

I could be wrong, but I don't think it was strategy as much

Mar 19, 2014, 6:34 PM

as necessity for the converting.

But yes, we do need to increase the amount of OL taken

Are you talking about the TE

Mar 19, 2014, 7:58 PM

That is going into the spring as a starting guard because he weights 305? Yea, total mistake.

or maybe all the guys we recruited for the guard spot

Mar 19, 2014, 9:29 PM

stink and a 4th year TE is better than all of them

Re: or maybe all the guys we recruited for the guard spot

Serious question. I went and read some of your previous posts and with all due respect, why do you pull for Clemson? If everything you see with our sports programs is so bad...why not pull for someone who meets your standards? (Standards are a good thing)

You found fault with our OLine recruiting, S&C staff, coaches performance, coaches pay, players performance, players character, players eating habits, (Tajh got fat?)and this is just what I took the time to read! Not one single positive anything!

This is where most people start the coot name calling. (Possible, only you know the truth) I prefer to trust people and their motives. So, I really am curious as to why would you subject yourself to something that apparently brings no joy or happiness into your life?

I follow the Tigers because it makes me feel good! Win or lose... I find the positive stuff 99.9 % of the time. If that ever changed and I viewed it like you do...I'd move on to something / anything else and try to enjoy life.

Get your logic out of here

Mar 20, 2014, 8:44 AM

It doesn't belong. Clemson fans or not, many posters on this site are disappointed with anything short of perfection when it is obvious they themselves are highly defective.

flag link

my opinion is my opinion and don't feel necessary

Mar 20, 2014, 10:12 AM

to explain to anyone but since you asked I merely dont want to repeat the Tommy Bowden era with our program . We were always 6pts or 2 games away from something all the while the coaches were creating the problems that kept us away. My biggest gripes have been lack of not good but great strength and nutrition programs and a continuous neglect of offensive line issues with recruiting. Now for the guys that say I want to take numbers just for numbers read my post below that illustrates offers within the last 3year recruiting cycle for FSU , Alabama and South Carolina .

I smell a coot...judging by your handle name and the date

Mar 21, 2014, 8:58 PM

you joined. Are you alluding to 'four fingers (wins) and growing?'

You fool no one. You know why people call USuCk fans shameocks? Cuz there afraid to even admit allegiance to such a suck ### university as USuCk...good day.

Mac Lain was considered an OL candidate out of HS by many

Mar 20, 2014, 8:36 AM

so his conversion is not a big surprise.

Your contention that we need to be signing OL in large numbers just to be signing them is erroneous. Especially the part about signing guys who can "start right away".

A guy like Mitch Hyatt may fight for a starting position as a true freshman, but the majority of the OL we sign will need at least one year and probably two to break into the 2-deep.

We may actually sign 6 OL in this cycle, but not because we expect them to contribute immediately.

I think FSU won a national title with two OL that were

I could be wrong...but I know at least one was...

This kid taking a visit? Cannot compute the coot.

because we need 6 in this cycle that can play

immediately , not four converted TEs and high school DT that heard about playing offensive line somewhere. we are in deep s??? the next two years for sure.

flag link

We do? The kids we sign next year will have 6 seniors ahead

Mar 19, 2014, 6:49 PM

of them their freshman year. Not sure why they would all have to be ready as true freshmen.

They don't need to play on Sunday to play well on Saturday

Mar 19, 2014, 6:50 PM

You really only need prototypical OL stock at the tackle positions. The interior positions require less natural talent for the position even though we have that too.

flag link

Do you remember the last time our Oline

Mar 19, 2014, 10:03 PM

dominated a game?
Outside of the top 35 in rushing
103 in TFLs allowed
102 in sacks allowed and all of this was accomplished with Thomas which is our best Olinemen in 10 years at least

Clemson offered 53 oline in the last three years which equals to 17.3 offers per year

FSU offers an average of 33.6 per year
Alabama an average of 25 per year
South Carolina an average of 22 per year

But Clemson did offer 81 wide receivers though in a three year period . No the Oline and the way the coaches manage scholarships isnt a problem , only if your head is stuck squarely in your a**. wake up people.

Danny Ford routinely converted defensive players to the OL

Mar 20, 2014, 8:44 AM

Two that come to mind immediately are Lee Nanny and John Phillips. Neither of them "played on Sunday", but they played ### good on Saturday's.

According to Rivals, we've offered every OL in the top 100

Mar 20, 2014, 1:39 PM

in the 2015 class (within our recruiting area) ... and we did the same the year before.

You act as if we have simply not offered any good OL for years and years. We always offer the best ones ... always.

And you also suggest that we should just sign any OL that we can, just to have numbers.

We have as many OL on scholarship now as almost any team in the country, so we're not short on numbers.

We cannot help it if the 5-star and 4-star guys have not chosen us the last few years. Things appear to be changing. Be patient.

Mar 20, 2014, 2:46 PM

don't do that with and average O-line. We're not great on the OL but we're pretty good.

56th in ypg is mediocrity

Mar 21, 2014, 10:07 AM

throw in the TFL and sack #s and we are bad. We finished behind Duke for ypg and ypc with the same amount of attempts. DUKE, DUKE! Get your head out of your butts people , we finished behind all the major programs that run the HUNH offensive philosophy in TFL, Sacks allowed, rushing ypc and ypg. I'm not making it up the #s are out there for people that want the truth .

Inline blocking TE more than anything else. Hopefully legget Richard or Cannon can fill in that role quickly.

Masquerading Coots on TNet seem to be less intelligent than the Coots that stay away from rivals sites. Before you ask the obvious question , yes is possible to be dumber than that.

Some of you a$$holes need to stop calling other clemson fans "coots" bc you don't agree w what they say. I don't agree w anything you say so by your logic you must be a coot...Don't disrespect fellow fans, save it for the real coots.
