Some people are looking for any reason...

to put down and degrade DJ. Now it is just people piling on. It is one thing to criticize his play, its another to just degrade him because you can. Studying his post game interviews to see how many times he brushes his hair or touches his goatee, criticizing his suits, his tattoos, his jewelry, his home life, the State he was raised in, whatever. It just becomes ridiculous and to much for anyone who is a college player.

Sure he may not have lived up to your expectations and its fair to criticize his play on the field but it becomes ridiculous when some look for any reason to put him down. He got paid by a NIL deal, not his fault. He didn't force Dr. Pepper or Bojangles to pay him and he certainly shouldn't have declined the money. He wears suits that are not everyone's taste. So what! Who cares how many times he combs his hair or touches his facial hair!!!! He is still a kid! We were spoiled with the humble and successful T-Law but that doesn't mean we should look for any reason to pile on DJ when he is down.


We are better than that as fans of CU. We are not fans of that other team from Columbia. When did this become okay from our Tiger faithful? Some people act like DJ is purposely throwing interceptions or purposely losing games. At times I get frustrated just like the rest of you but, my lord, have some perspective.

Just my opinion. I appreciate all of the Clemson fans and I truly enjoy meeting some of you and cheering our Tiger's on beside you. Looking forward to beating Louisville next weekend.

Go Tiger's!

Men at 25 play football. Men at 40 play tennis. Men at 60 play golf. Have you noticed as men get older their balls get smaller.

You want piling on ,and degrading ;OK here goes. I don't give a crap about how he combs his hair or give a $#!+ about his suits, but his attitude, and demeanor is that of inmature student athlete with more money in his pocket than I have in my bank account.
He is still a kid! Yes ,and so was DW#4 and T.L. Care again to tell me why we can't criticize his demeanor.

So have you had the opportunity to sit and talk with DJ? Have you had personal conversations with him to be able to determine if he is genuine and humble or immature? What has he done or said that would lead you to believe he is immature? His suits? His NIL deal? His hair? Is it simply his play on the field that leads you to believe he is immature? Please explain how you came to the conclusion that he is immature?

Of course he's immature, he's a 19-20 year old kid. Jayzus dude, you couldn't have handled all of this at 19, as most of us couldn't.

D1 Athletes in most sports gets tons of pressure starting in HS: "you're going to the NFL.." "you're gonna get your pick of schools..." "You're a favorite for the Heisman..." Then all of the bull squeeze from fans who were playground superstars at their peak and high school players at their best. I GUARANTEE you that he is more frustrated at his, and his teams performance than you will ever know. He has to wear it 24/7, all you have to do is post about it as a keyboard hero/coach on T'net.

So, maybe, we're the ones that need to grow up.

He is 20 and there are many that can. I couldn't have, but there are many that can. He has been in the media for years though. This shouldn't be that new. He is very immature though. That's a good thing in some ways. He is still growing. He acts likes a 16 year old though. He acts like a boy. We are used to Deshaun and Trevor, so DJ's immaturity stands out.

As a staunch alum, and not stank alum! But unfortunately these players are no longer the young high school kids that want to play in college. Now they are business persons, and if they want to act as business ppl versus student athletes then I will oblige. But if you want to act like Bockhorst or Etc, then I will never call you out individually.

But you wanna dress like Cam Newton in you plaid knickers and sport suit and green glasses, Im gonna treat you as a professional.

So you dislike the kid because of the way he dresses? You determine how mature he is and how humble he is based on his dress? That is what immaturity sounds like to me.

Dress only is a thought! I'm thinking about the rest of the team. You obviously missed the 50threads about his dress last week after a loss. So I am not the originator of the thought. But in comparison to our previous culture players were not dressed in suits combing hair for 5 minutes when they discussed a game. If you think a GQ look and act is better than sincerity, then hope you guys get to hang out on your Metro weekends soon!

I will not event try to give you a response to this. This has to be one of the most ignorant things I have read in the past 5 years on T-Net.

You must not read Tnet much. And you obviously have zero feel how teams and sports work. Teams want to work together as one, but when a struggling QB specially says that he "Did Not Learn,? ' anything from sitting on sidelines for 2 series in Pitt, that told me he is so immature that he is not absorbing learning opportunities and if he is not, then he will never make the playoffs because off his arrogance.

I re-watched ND last week and he was much better then. He is not even good now. He is not a winning QB. He is only winning in his mind because his Bank Acct has increased.

Seriously, if you defend any of this, then you are blind faith follower and have zero clue as to why he is worse. You are a fan and not alum, you follow Clemson because its cool, not because you know the players.

DJ has the tools, i never wished him anything but positive wins because that is my team. But he is not responding to interviews as I would expect for a team builder!

I think Taison can teach him a heck of a lot more than he knows vs pulling money from ATM.

@TattedCop - please note that righty has about 20K posts

has been on T'net for 10 years, and is freeloading.

Typical.

Sister righty, at least help support the forum where you embarrass yourself, embarrass good Clemson fans and denigrate (sorry for the 3 syllable word, babe - but go to the inter webs and look it up) teenagers.

So you would rather talk about the fans whether fair-weathered or what happens of they have blood ties to the school for over 100yrs.

How many years are your historic affiliation? I am guessing zero as a "TattetCop"! Nothing wrong with Tats or Cops but most degrees from Clemson dont chase jerkbaits.

I don't care of you have tats or not. We are drawing one now that rips out of my shoulder and plunges with mouth open. That said, why are you passing criticism on me?

Not 100% true, I likes him as a humble player. You don't like my example of video, watch his state Championship from 2yrs ago when he beat Young. Look how free he played and ran. Look at ND game last year. Tell me he hasn't changed persona and you are mistaken.

I love Clemson ball, I want players to love the same!

You're so off on this one. People are criticizing his play. He played poorly. They will praise him when he plays well. He is not a baby. The guy is 20 years old.

THEY WERE NOT CRITISIZING HIS PLAY EARLIER TONIGHT. I saw posts about how many times he touched his goatee in an interview. I saw a post about how many times he brushed his hair in a post game interview. I saw a post about how he cares more about his flashy suits then being humble. I saw a post about his nickname. I saw a post about his tattoos. I saw a post even questioning whether his real life family issues with Mom and Dad were real or made up. Those who criticize his play, fine, those that pile on with this non-sense are just looking to stir the pot.

It happens in sports. I agree they should strictly stick to his play though. They don't know him. I know nothing about DJU as a person myself. I can't even understand why anyone would ever talk about anything but his play. I agree that is nuts. Not egregious like the morons getting personal with DJU, you're even defending his play though, going as far to say he played well. That's a little nuts too, but I agree harmless. Anyway, people are getting personal and making up reasons for his poor play. Do they ever think that he is giving 100% and he just need to keep working to get better? They act like all it takes is him wanting to play well. He is giving 100%. He is just not good yet. He can get there in the right system. The first thing that needs to go are designed runs. He isn't a threat when he does choose to keep it. That's why all those plays are blown up whether he pitches the ball or not. D's are all over that. If he keeps he isn't a threat, so it's an easy play to defend if he pitches as well. That's on TE and Dabo. We need to adapt to his abilities. Right now it's not working, and it will never work, and it has to be messing with DJ's head. JMO's

The way player appears in interviews is a reflection of CU. If they are allowed to wear the paw they should be expected to appear and communicate in a reasonable way. If they are to immature to answer a few questions without being more interested in grooming we should use someone else to represent the program. Pretty simple to me.
