Who does bad weather favor on Saturday?


Sep 27, 2022, 6:34 PM

I'd give us an edge if the OL can open up a few holes and give our backs some room to run. I think it could be a war of attrition and hopefully, our defensive depth gives us an advantage, assuming we get most of our injured back this week.

I also think not having to travel and deal with that will be bigger the normal inconvenience.

Last, we seem to have had pretty good past success in heavy bad weather, the last one I remember being a ND game in DV.

I'd say mostly wrecker services and body shops.

It will favor NC State. The wet, soggy field will negate our team speed on defense. One of our biggest advantages.

So you’re saying it will slow our defense but not their offense?

Glad Doeren is worried about it.***

Apparently anyone but Notre Dame. The Pack beat ND in 2016 playing in hurricane Matthew.

State, laptops will get wet and become not as useful.

Receivers. They know where they are going, the defenders don't.

I heard years ago a QB say the ideal conditions for the offense were:
1. Bright sunshine.
AND
2. Wet field.

Isn’t that always the case?

a wet field prevents the defense from getting a good rush.

The teams are close in both total yards rushing and passing but we have more than they do. Their defense is much better than ours based on total yards. I would say then that if our O line can get good push and Ship is as tough as usual, we should be in the drivers seat for 5-0.

Bad weather helps the inferior team as it tends to equalize things a bit. Doesn't matter how great you are if you can't see 5 yards in front of yourself or if the winds blowing 50mph.

my father used to say Clemson eas always better in the rain because the woukd practice with the sprinklers on. whether it was true then or not I think it unlikely to carry over to today.

Nan-Cee Stank has a veteran OL and two very good backs; particularly #0. But, to date they haven't played a team than role fresh DL in over and over all game long.
Our OL has some vets on it that have played a ton of ball as well. I think it favors us; because of the depth of our DL. They have a good DL as well; but not sure about their depth.
