Is this Saturday the Ship and Mafah show?

I don't see BC able to stop the run. This could be "that game" that the RB's break out.

And, on the other side of the ball - they can't run it. KJ is going to have a record night. Jurkovec will hate the number 5 after Saturday night!

Based on their stats it will be a DJ. BC is good against the run.

Also, I thought I read something where Myles Murphy was saying they are a run heavy team. I forgot jurkovec was still there. He's nothing to sneeze at.

It would be nice to see all our RBs get plenty of touches and yardage that goes with it.


GO TIGERS!!!

I want it to be a DJ, Ship, Mafah, Beaux, Jake, and Davis night!

p.s. Throw in Potter for good measure.

Pace will get some touches too.

Pace ran for triple digits against BC last year….

I’m sure he’ll be eager to have a few carries.

Would like to see us improve our downfield passing.

Dabo stated early in the season that in order to win at this level you have to be a good passing team. He has said this week that, with a good QB, you can beat anybody.

We can run the ball well enough. We missed some big plays in the passing game last week. We need to continue to improve in the passing game and take advantage of those downfield/big play opportunities.

Against VT, they had a total net yards rushing - for the entire game - of 5 yards??

I want to see Cade play the entire 2nd half.

FSU 44, BC 10
Halftime score: 31-0

BC rushing: 34-95
BC passing: 18-29-140

BC has one weapon. WR Zay Flowers. He had 7 receptions, but for only 45 yards.

Longest pass play - 24 yards
Longest rush play - 11 yards.

FSU front 7 has 1 or 2 players that would make the two deep depth chart at Clemson.

BC has lost to Rutgers and VT.

Jurkovec is a good QB with absolutely no weapons around him.
He has thrown 6 picks and been sacked 17 times.
96-150-1147

Rushing stats: 157-383
2.4 yards per rush.

Clemson is playing better every week. Haven't peaked yet, but heading in that direction.

I know the game is in BC, but other than that, there is nothing to suggest BC can keep it close.

Should be a good opportunity all around for our offense.

BC rush defense is ranked 84th in the country

BC pass D is ranked 49th.

I can't see how we struggle anywhere except the rare occasion
we may punt. If we are over the 50 #### , I'd go for it if it's 3 or less

DJ is going to see a different defensive front tomorrow.

Wake and NC State were most often rushing 3 and dropping 8 on passing downs. DJ had tons of time to work through progressions and find an open guy, and to his credit he did well.

This week we'll see a 4-man front with more blitzes, the object being to put some pressure on DJ and reduce his reaction times. He's going to have to make decisions in the passing game much quicker than he has. So it will be interesting to see how his progression continues to come along. If we truly have hope of playoffs and whatnot, DJ remains the key and will need to prove he can have similar success when pressure into a faster game.

I love our backs, and we must be able to have some balance tomorrow and long-term. We're 51st in the rushing game and that's after playing rushing defenses La Tech (128th), GT (109th), Furman (FCS 46th), Wake (59th), and of course NC State who's been pretty stout (15th).

BC is 84th. Not trying to be Debbie Downer here, but I'm not 100% sure our OL and rushing game has reached an "elite" status where we can just line up and run at will.

BC will challenge us up front. They'll likely crowd the box to stop the run and dare us to throw.

I don't think we can run Ship, Marah, and Pace all day, and I think it will be good to see some pressure up front on DJ and the OL to see how they respond.

Go Tigers!
