I’m not willing to put Kelly Bryant in the bust column. He did get us to the playoffs after all. He was just more of a game manager rather than the elite QB you need to compete at that level.

Kelly Bryant wasn’t a bust! He just had the misfortune of being there when Trevor got there. No QB woulda survived that. Kinda like being an elite golfer at the height of Tiger Wood’s success: a lotta guys never got their time to shine during that time

I don't think Kelly Bryant was a bust at all. He was the 420th rated player out of HS and a 3 star. I think he did well for what he was projected to be.

I struggled with a #5 bust, but the way Kelly left during the season and his game vs Bama put him there.

Not sure I'd label Kelly Bryant a bust. We won the conference and went to the playoffs with him. Obviously he transferred when TL took over and wasnt elite but I dont think he was a bust

I wouldn't put KB on that list, but I generally agree, good list. Maybe Willy Korn #1? Chad was just a rock-head, actually played okay at Ole Miss right?

Chad might have played alright at Ole Miss but he was a bust at Clemson...

He played great at Ole Miss - go back and look at his two seasons.

He wasn't a bust at Clemson because he never got much of a chance before transferring - same with Hunter Johnson.

Nelon Greene comes to mind over KB or HJ....

Willy Korn had an injury that he couldn't recover from. Ol' Billy Lucky come to mind. Did he ever play or just smoke weed ?

2023 orange level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up


Nealon Greene wasn’t a bust at all.


Dec 5, 2022, 12:08 AM

He was a good QB who left Clemson as our all time leader in passing yardage.

He had the misfortune of being stuck on some bad teams with a confused offensive identity.

He went on to have a nice career in the CFL.

He would’ve been outstanding in the college offenses of today.

Swag could play, he just couldn’t stay out of trouble

Kelly Bryant wasn’t a good QB, but he’s definitely and better QB than DJ. He’s also a heck of an athlete.

Re: Top 5 Best/Bust Clemson QBs the Last 30 Years


Dec 4, 2022, 11:14 PM

Yep. That’s the list.

Kelly Bryant's only crime was not being Lamar Jackson. He was a decent QB in the right system. Also not a 5 star or, if memory serves, a QB. He was an ATH recruit was he not?

Re: Top 5 Best/Bust Clemson QBs the Last 30 Years


Dec 4, 2022, 11:19 PM

Eh, KB kinda overacheived in my opinion. I wouldn't list him as a bust. Now SwagBag Kelly was a massive bust as a person, not so much as a QB. Can't argue the top 5 best though, outside of who gets the 1-2 spot which can flip flop and still be correct.

Lulz at KB before Billy Luckie


Dec 4, 2022, 11:36 PM

Were you alive in the 90’s?

And no Kyle Parker???***

Re: And no Kyle Parker???***


Dec 4, 2022, 11:49 PM

Yeah, KP was one of the first ones who came to mind. Maybe he wasn’t highly rated, hence he didn’t count as a bust. He was frustrating to watch, that’s for sure.

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

The guy before Parker, who was he?


Dec 5, 2022, 1:16 AM

I was to young to know what his recruiting rating was but that season we started #9 and was supposed to win the ACC and he was terrible all year. I want to say Proctor? He had his saving grace though by beating SC at home with the throw down the sideline as he was going to his knees.

I might be thinking about Cullen Harper idk. Now
I think I’m getting them confused.

KB should be above Hunter

Re: Top 5 Best/Bust Clemson QBs the Last 30 Years


Dec 5, 2022, 12:00 AM

Billy Luckie and Patrick Sapp both belong in the bust top 5

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Surely Will Proctor...


Dec 5, 2022, 12:14 AM

...is in striking distance of the Bust list

Re: Top 5 Best/Bust Clemson QBs the Last 30 Years

Maybe Willie Simmons #5, KB should not be on list.

Re: Top 5 Best/Bust Clemson QBs the Last 30 Years

I'll leave your best in order.

Change bust to worst.

1.DJ
2.Cole Stoudt
3. Will Proctor
4. Kyle Parker
5. Cullen Harper

Dabo had an immense amount of loyalty to DJ,Parker, and Stoudt. Definitely more of a trend than ppl are willing to admit.
