Hats off to Wake... great move doing it. What I don't get is why we have not put our number two kick off returner in his spot. Four times they have done it and it has worked for them every time. At least he got smart and fair caught it on the last one so we get it on the 25.
We have 30 guys on the team that have been there longer, have worked just as hard and have ten times better speed and athletic ability than him. I get it... its his kid, but its a bit ridiculous that his kids play so much.... even holder. How about putting Cade as your holder to open up the fake playbook? Or HJ?
Hey a-hole,one of his boys scored on a fake field goal once. I sure wish Dabo would quit Clemson and come to my school and you sissy boys could have Bowden back like some of you deserve. Clemson has some good fans, too bad so many ######## have to show their ugly comments on these sites and make everyone else look bad
I understand the comment about whinny fans and perhaps knit-picking when we shouldn't, but I think there is a valid point to be made here.
Field position is a critical part of any game and kick returns are the important part of that when we are receiving the ball. If best is standard as we claim then we should have our best kick returner bringing back kicks.
If Will Swinney is the best we have then I have no issue.
Unless you have a home run threat return guy (and only a couple of teams do) then it is not worth the risk to your offensive skill positions to have them returning kicks. That kid at Kentucky would be one of the very few exceptions. He can take any kick to the house.
back there on KO return duty. They aren't worth returning unless you have a CJ Spiller caliber return guy. Even Etienne - who was ridiculously explosive, was not an effective return man.
It feels like on most returns, players are struggling just to get back to the 25, and then you risk a hold or block in the back that can start you at the 10-15 yard line and kill a drive before it starts. And that's not even taking into account the risk of injuring one of your most important players. I think Ships already gotten dinged up twice this year on KO returns.
