Difference between USuCk and FSU???

Posted: Oct 30, 2012 2:11 PM

Why I think we beat those losers:

I just rewatched the fsu ( boy was it fun).

I think that their defense is as good as sc minus Clowney he will be a problem but it seems like you can scheme around one great player.

We were so bad on defense that part of the year so its hard to take a great deal from it but he put some pressure on EJ at times and we were in position to make a lot of tackles on the running backs we just didn't execute. Their oline is much better than sc and we are improving on defense with each and every rep these young guys get.

Sc lbers are not in the same hemisphere as Fsu. Those guys were the reason our offense sputtered when it did. They made the plays in the passing game that sc wont be able to.

SC dbs are no where near what Fsu has talent wise. I would suspect that they will try and press us like Fsu did but I don't think they will be able to do it as well.

I say we spread them out and let Shatley and Beasley do their thing up the middle.

If they play man- man which I think they will start out in then I think we eat them alive with quick passes until they bring someone down to help, once that happens then the Sammy Watkins show ala Wake Forrest will take place.

Of course if they can stop the run with 6 in the box we could be in trouble. However I think our boys will be up for the challenge and a healthy Tajh and Andre will give us a great chance to run it.

One more thing I can't wait to see is the tempo we run at. If we can have some success much like we did against Fsu then I think we will wear them down. They don't have the depth that Fsu has.

I know there is alot of sunshine in here. But I think we have the team and the proper mindset to beat them this year.

I was worried about SCs defense at the start of the year

but I think your assessment is right at this point in the season. Although, it's not just Clowney, their entire DL is pretty strong.

Thankfully we have the talent at receiver to run a quick-hitting vertical passing game and basically negate that strong DL.

AFter watching UT pick their LBs and secondary apart, we should have a field day in the passing game.

And since they lost their offense on Saturday, I think we'll keep their score down.

It makes sense that a quick passing game would negate a DL

But why didn't it do that last year? What was different, or not working, for Clemson?

We, for some reason, stopped running the ball. Simple as that.

I haven't questioned Chad Morris a single time in his time here, but when he stopped running the ball in the 3rd quarter (a trend that's been common in many of our losses) of that game, I was livid. Andre was getting 5 yards a pop, and we just stopped running the football.

That makes it easy to call plays. Rush 4 and drop the other 7 back into whatever coverage you choose.

USC was able to get pressure with the front 4 so easily because they were pinning their ears back. You have to stick with the run game.

Unlike some previous years, USC has defended the run well.***

That may be the case, but it doesn't change the fact that Andre was consistently getting 4-6 yards per carry. His average for the game was 5.1 ypc.

He carried the ball 4 times in the 2nd half.

Tennessee's Qb has a release of about 2 seconds.

TN's O-line is most likely the best in the SEC, and that includes BAMA. As a unit, they've only allowed 4 sacks all year.

"Stalwart universities—Harvard, Princeton, Yale—most certainly offer status. The Citadel offers character. "

Hang on a second, so are you admitting that I was right

The difference is FSU is a team with a successful past.....

and Carolina is a team who can only dream of being successful someday.

they aren't nearly as good as FSU
