Most Dominating Game Defensively?


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 10:48 AM
 

What the most dominating game you've ever seen a Clemson defense play? I don't mean against a cupcake team but a real opponent.

One of my favorites will always be against Georgia in 1981 - they forced 7 or 8 fumbles that day.


45-0 over Scar in 1989 in Columbia. What a night!***

UNC in 81
Oklahoma in 88
Penn St in 87
WV in 89
Illinois in 90
UGA in 80. Should have won that game.

After WVUs first drive, Levon and Company made Major Harris look like a fool. Chester McGlockton had a little to do with that performance as well. This year's DL could be as dominant as Danny's last couple DLs were. GO TIGERS!

We're going to need it to get through this schedule.

You should never chalk up to conspiracy what you can reliably attribute to stupidity. Because stupidity is a much more powerful force in the course of human events.

how do you force a turnover? what is the difference between a team committing a turnover by poor play or a team forcing a turnover? I have read many times on here that the turnovers by us cost us the game against the coots last year, but did they force them or did we commit them? the op said we forced them in above said game, so I guess it depends on who is winning!


Sammy throwing interception = committed turnover

Quarles(?) stripping Boyd of the ball = forced turnover cause Boyd had three points of contact on the ball, Quarles just made an athletic play that Boyd couldn't help

Whatever you do, always give 100%.....unless it's donating blood

I understand that, but my question is should the props go to the coots for causing the fumbles or us for committing them? I guess it is all in how you view it!


You could probably argue...

That only the one turnover that actually mattered (Boyd's fumble) was forced by South Carolina. The others were an interception thrown by Watkins when he floated the ball, two muffed punts (no muffed punt is really "caused by the defense"), and two interceptions in desperation.

The glass is half full-half empty analogy. The offense

commits a T/O and the defense forces a T/O. Depends on how you look at it. My guess.

All these Tiger fans running around here giving their team the benefit of the doubt. What is this place? You would almost get the impression that it's a sports site for Clemson fans.


It can happen both ways but when you have a defense......

knocking the #### out of the ball carrier or receiver and/or reaching in to strip him of the ball that's forcing a turnover. It doesn't depend on who's winning.

No stop sign is safe around you.


Re: @ UNC 1981. was at the game.

Two top 5 teams, two top 5 defense.
Was a heck of a game. LT dominating - but so did the Tigers.


2006 GT game: vs. top 12 team, College Gameday,

night game in DV.

Held who I believe to be the greatest WR in CFB history with literally 0 catches.

Gave up 1 TD on a lucky bomb from what I can remember--would've been a shutout.

The BC game a few years back the Tiger D held them under 100 yards of O.
