With the installation of the offense almost complete, the Clemson coaching staff will begin the process of evaluating players and a depth chart will begin to take shape at several positions. Full Story »
Not "standing out"? Bryant should be heads and shoulders above a freshman and two sophomores. I'm worried about this QB situation. Dabo is gonna put us in another Stoudt situation because of seniority. If Johnson of Cooper does better, let them play. Maybe I'm worried for nothing. I'm sure Dabo knows what he's doing but I have an uneasy feeling about the whole thing.
I don't think you are wrong in what is happening but Dabo and company still have to go about finding the best QB they can for opening day. If that is Bryant and he puts all his skills together and starts performing more consistently then give him the job, if not I would much rather go with Cooper and let Johnson be the backup and learn and if Cooper struggles during the season we go with Johnson. Just my opinion but have to let the coaches decide who is going to start and hope that one of the guys steps up and takes the reigns.
Even if he were far ahead they wouldn't say so. I'm not saying he is, but they probably won't name a starter until a week before the opener because they want an open competition where everyone is in it. I do expect Bryant to leave the spring atop the depth chart, but that's meaningless this early
Are some of you guys ever going to be able to let it go?

"Dabo is gonna put us in another Stoudt situation because of seniority".
Dabo is going to play the guy with the best combination of experience, most knowledge with the offense, and who is showing the best in practice.
Just like he did with Cole and Deshaun.
Deshaun proved to be the best QB as time went on, but he wasn't ready to be the starter from day 1. Cole deserved the shot and he got it. He was the best combination of experience, he had the most knowledge of the offense, and he was showing the best in practice. He showed exactly what he was capable of against Oklahoma. That's why he started.
better than cole ..just watch the uga game when watson went in compared to cole..fact is cole got the start because he rode the pine and never complained..we have a legit reason to be concerned that he will pull that bs again with bryant..if cooper is better then he should start.

I agree with this. It did show from the beginning in the ugay game. It's not what I hoped for ( I wanted Stoudt to shine), but he was not as effective as DW4 from the get go. Finally Dabo admitted it, and we moved ahead.
I think that the fact that he is not gung-ho about any one quaterback shows that it is truly still a wide open, unsettled position. It seems to me his comments are laced with a little bit of "Bryant is the best of what we got right now..."
