By spreading the reps around and not playing his best players, Dabo gave the team a false sense of confidence we could win with anyone on the field. I've read on here before Dabo lacks killer instinct. He's said many times a 1-point win is as good as a 3 touchdown win. He disproved that tonight.
His arrogance in playing an injured and immobile KB cost the kid a concussion, and his loyalty to KB, ZC and the depth chart cost Clemson an easy win against a bad but fired-up SYR team.
This team has some great D-linemen and unused WR's and RB's, but uncertain that Clemson team with one really bad loss will get another shot without Deshaun this year. QB and CB play have been very average at best this year.
But, Kelly was a liability in the run game. I thought that Hunter won the 2nd string spit last week. Would have been good to see him start and Kelly come in if needed for a spark. Do think we can win the conference but will end up in the Orange Bowl. Not bad - I said 4-1 at the end of September would be good.
