Just watched Shipley from the pressers today

what an impressive young man. Everything you want to see; personal accountability, drive, determination, wanting to lead. He's ticked off, that's what we need more of.

If we do see the offense move forward these last 5 games it will be due to him and hopefully some others who emerge with this kind of fight. When you lack leadership and identity that is exactly the time for guys to establish that to emerge.

He's been very close to popping big plays several times this year. Calling it now, he gets at least 2 this week.

I agree, he is impressive.

We are going to see big things from him during his Clemson career.

position group. Very confident and wanting the responsibility. We've been extremely blessed to have real leaders; DW, Wilkins, Boulware, Gallman, Renfrow, guys who establish accountability. We lack that on offense clearly. I think Skalski is that guy on defense, Breese was as well, but no one has done that on offense.

To be that guy you have to perform at a high level. Ship appears as though he could be that guy, with hopefully a few other of these young guys to step up

incredible leadership. Guys who gave it 100 PERCENT. They demanded effort of themselves and EVERYONE ELSE On the team. Bouleware, DW, Gallman,Mitch,MIKE WILLIAMS,Artavis Scott(No one has run the speed sweep well since him,IMHO),Bryant, Wilkins,Ferrell,Watkins,Huggins,Joseph,O'Daniel, Ryan Carter, Mullen,and none other than Marcus Edmond.Oh, and Renfrow...I cannot imagine a single receiver making the play he did on the fumble to chase down and tackle a three hundred pounder. Those boys competed from the ring of the bell!

We have some guys with that same kind of fire on this team, but just not enough.

Well said. That guy has brought the energy since his first snap, but we have to remember he’s a freshman who didn’t get to play his senior year if I recall right. Then the knee injury so he made plays while shaking off the rust. He will break some big plays soon.

4 weeks ago people were howling for his head because a 3rd team RB transferred. Our RB room is by far the brightest spot on this offense. And I have no doubt CJ is exhorting his guys to step up and be a pack of alphas.

That is the problem with all these young, read inexperienced, coaches: them what can't teach exhort. It ain't enough.

I love me some Shipley also. He needs to not lean forward quite as much, he is getting ankle tackled because of it. He is wanting his yards, expecting to get hit, but when the opening is there he is still learning forward therefore an easy ankle grab puts him down.

ETN had tremendous balance with leg strength. I think Shipley has leg strength that will get better but he needs to sit back a little in his running and he will run through the ankle grabs much easier.

But we do need more of his personality on the team as the offense is lacking an identity severely.

Then also add the playcalls, I think if we ran the ball 80% and eat up the clock against Pitt, we win the game. Keep our def fresh, don't have drops killing our progress, kill clock and we win the game! I think we averaged over 5.6yds per carry last I looked.

of himself. Missing the 3 games didn't help. But when he has it slow down just a touch for him, look out. His instincts are really good.

It would be encouraging for the present and the future if the younger players established themselves as team leaders.

He mentioned McFadden, which is good. With Bock gone time for him to assume that role up front. Hate to say not sure who that is right now at QB or WR.

I had to stop watching DJ's postgame presser it was so uncomfortable. Just nervous as all get out, a bunch of tics and such. He said the right things but his mannerisms were of a deflated young man who has very little confidence.

Ngata has some fire at WR, maybe he can assume that role.

From preseason on there was and is way too much time and attention needed on DJ5. (while he was spending way too much time on NIL contracts) Yes, that generally happens with 'supposed' 5 star QBs coming in and it supposedly being 'their' time. But I sense this team (on offense) has have to have lost some enthusiasm as the weeks have gone, with the key injuries, close wins and now 3 losses. Don't get me wrong, I believe there is still the Tiger desire to win.

I am all in with those who feel Ship is and wants to be a leader. Ngata healthy can be a leader/challenger for WRs. Ajou I believe is hungry. There is a lot of practice time needed for the continuing new faces at OL. And then I have no clue who is going to be the one to step in and up at QB.
I have a sense that I know who it isn't going to be.

I hope we don't see players/people thrown under the bus as the season plays out. I do think it appears there is a need for a wider back seat.

In all continuing support, I proudly renewed my contribution this week.
