Responding to another negative post about our football program from

guess who? We have the fewest returning starts of any team in the ACC. OP went on to highlight the DL as an area of particular concern with only six returning starts.


Demonte Capehart played significant snaps in every game the last two seasons. As you should know, most college DL's substitute often during games to keep players fresh. Though he didn't run out with the 1's DC is a very experienced DL.

Likewise Payton Page has played in every game his entire career at Clemson.

Isn't this really what a program should want, when a great player leaves, another with significant playing time in meaningful games is ready to step in?

I'm not surprised by the post. OP never backs of away from any chance you to disparage our football program, from coaches on down.

What OP did not point out.

The DL has two returning freshmen All Americans. Clemson has the 9th ranked defensive line in the country (preseason).

They are backed by the number one linebacker group in the country (preseason).

They are backed by a deep and talented secondary that got better with each game last season.

I await OP's defense that he/she is just relaying info and was in no way expressing any opinions about our football program.

Was the OP Fudge Smeller or something that rhymes with that?

Anyways DLine is the least of our concerns. This will be the most complete defensive unit we've had since 18'

My concern is Cade's decision making. If he eliminates the dumb we will win most of the time with the defense we have.

The secondary will be ELITE. No Fly Zone is back.

Grudge Feller, but we are referring to the same person.

I agree, two questions remain. One, can CK play within his role and manage the game and not put us in bad positions? Two, can one of the freshman WR's become a threat to stretch the field? Two (B) can the OL hold up against elite DL's (both UGa and Looservill have some dudes.

I think the talent has been there for the Oline all along even through the last three seasons. Where I think we've lacked is development and energy.

It sounds like Matt Luke was the recipe to turn that around.

I expect to see a much improved O Line this season.

I do believe timing effected Cade and DJ quite a bit.

I agree. Matt Luke was a great hire for Clemson.

Why do dogs always race to the door when the doorbell rings? It's almost never for them.

He shouldn't be allowed to have Dabo as his profile pic.

She is strangely obsessed with Dabo's lack of sideburns so her avatar is an ongoing attempt at ridicule. A pretty obvious clue that there is a woman behind the JK handle as this simply isn't something a man would give two ##### about.

When the media or individuals throw "fiery darts" at Clemson's football program, It only reveals that
The Tigers gridiron presence is doing something RIGHT. Let the revilers continue to shoot out all the negativity. Many of them will be picking their teeth from the crow-eating when the 2024 season ends.

Still plenty of legitimate question marks for our team. DL isn't one of them.

Some people are just insufferable.

Posted this earlier, when I saw the post.

Lets take a look, Peyton Page 238 snaps in 2023, Capehart 179, Woods 307, Parker 457, Tre Lamar injured but plenty of snaps under his belt. Rated by most opinions to be a top 10 defense in 2024.
So let's get real we have a good defense, no need for hand wringing.
