Is Clemson's Offense better than Texas A&M?

Posted: Dec 25, 2012 7:37 PM

I am curious what Clemson fans think. I only saw one game of Clemson all year (SCar) and based on that and the fact that A&M had a lot of success with a tougher schedule, I think A&M is better. I bring up this comparison because A&M was probably the best offense we faced.
Once we made adjustments in the middle of the 2nd qtr, we shut A&M down allowing only one prevent D TD...

I would have to give a slight edge to TAMU. But, I was at/watched 12/12 Clemson games and only watched 3/12 TAMU games. Johnny's ability to make plays when plays aren't "there" separates the two offenses. Tajh is great when he is in rhythm, not so great when not.

The very reason IMHO Chad Kelly will be better in this offense.

not a usuck guy and let me stamp my class ring in your forehead idiot...

You honestly believe that we will win this game.. Just put your salary against it.. I am a huge tiger fan and no less than you but realistic. We only scored 3 points against the coots in the second half and they totally shut us down. I think there is technology now called Video where you can play previous matches.I think LSU will utilize this new technology to figure out how to shut us down as well. They have better athletes than the coots. OOh yeah, the game was in death valley if you have not noticed and we were suppose to win that game. I'll give the Clemson tigers with +10 if you are a man to take it.

I'd say aTm, but only because of Johnny Football. Morris is a better coordinator and I personally believe we have more talent. However, sometimes we fail to use it. We faced some solid defenses and put up huge numbers, although when it came to an SEC defense, we failed. That scares me. No matter what, I'll be there cheering on my Tigers next Monday!

FAN "no matter what" chad Morris is going to install more ball control with more rushing, play action, less passing but occasional long ball for tds. The defense will get to play less minutes, and CLEMSON WINs with lower score than imagined. GO REAL TIGERS

LSU defense can play off their offense and at times, can even "hide" their offense for them...Clemson, there is just no hiding that defense...Clemson will not control the clock with "great" ball control...Haven't done it all year...Its get the ball and score ASAP! That theory will have our "horrific defense" on the field for LSU's pounding running game...Folks, you need to prepare urselves for the worst....This game will get lopsided in some point in the game...LSU by a huge margin..I said it the day the match ups came out and I am sticking to it...

I would have to say on the OL aTm may be better.

Re: I would have to say on the OL aTm may be better.

Posted: Dec 25, 2012 11:30 PM

I am looking forward to it...
I think this game will be similar to our game against A&M...we must minimize the early damage while we are adjusting to your offense...then we'll just ball control, TOP, power run you guys until you wear down...
I think we'll win and the score will make the game seem closer than it was because we will dominate line play on both sides.

My take...

Posted: Dec 26, 2012 12:21 AM

we'll need to be +2 in TOs to win. Have to take care of the ball, force you guys to throw it and come up with enough big plays on D.

T am I'd say is a little better. However, I truly believe that if we can establish a run game and some pass protection, we can exploit the LSU secondary which is their weakness.

Boyd needs to be able to run sucessfully and if he rolls outside the pocket off play action, we've for these 2 guys named Nuk and Samny who are 2 of the best receivers in the country.

Let's not forget LSU only beat Auburn by 2 points, Ole Miss by 6 and Arkansas by 7. I will tell you this... Clemson's offense is far better than those opponents. Our defense must force 3 and outs or at least some... If we fail to not put points on the board it will be a repeat of SC...

I believe we will come out swinging and I think we'll pull off the upset!

LSU plays down to their competition...

Posted: Dec 26, 2012 7:53 AM

I wouldn't put any hope into looking at some of our close wins like that gives you guys a better chance. It won't work with us. We give up a lot of late TDs after the game is virtually decided. We take no chances on offense and start playing prevent once we gain the lead.

Les is one of the best at getting his teams ready to play...

are you trying to convince me or yourself that les gets his

Posted: Dec 27, 2012 4:25 AM

teams ready to play. from the outside looking in, it appears that les does the least, with the most, as much or more than any coach out there- if you can understand that.


Re: are you trying to convince me or yourself that les gets his

Posted: Dec 27, 2012 9:09 AM

Really? You need quit listening to the rantards on TD...
He is 85-20 as the head coach at LSU.
He is 5-2 in bowl games.
He has 5 11 win seasons in the toughest conference, in the toughest division.
We rarely lose to teams we should beat...
Les is 3-3 against Bama...although one of those Ls was huge
People seem to forget that our road to any championship goes thru Bama, and even when we beat them, we are expected to beat them again...
I am confident in my coach and our program...

Interesting question, and I really don't know the answer;

Posted: Dec 26, 2012 6:34 AM

however, I do know this: I've watched LSU on TV for many years due to the success and strength of their program. I know our match-up won't be a cakewalk...in fact, I believe LSU will be our most daunting opponent this year, because they have a long history of continual success, and whether folks like him or not, Les Miles is no dummy. That being said, I've, also, watched many games over the past 50 years wherein David rose and found a way to slay big, ole Goliath. I know what most prognosticators are saying...I know our level of success and failure this season. Therefore, the question is: can Clemson rise to the challenge? As for me, not once, ever in all the years have I conceded a game before it's played...and regardless of any and all arguments to the contrary, I have absolutely no intention of starting now!

Posted: Dec 27, 2012 8:36 AM

They closely resembled Clemson in offensive philosophy and scheme.
We had a bad outing on D against ole miss, doesn't mean we won't kick ya'll pseudo-physical ##### all over the field.

The good news is Clemson finally decided to have physical practices...I am sure those 15 days will totally change the mentality of your team...
Just the fact that this is considered reportable news should tell you the differences in the programs...

Good for you...

Posted: Dec 27, 2012 8:29 AM

We are a much better team than we were when we played back then...

I wish some of you Clemson fans would watch the Towson LSU game...bringing this up makes you look very ignorant.
Also, any away win in the SEC conference can be tough...it's the byproduct of being in a tough conference...maybe one day you'll understand that...

Our defense played much better than I expected against SCar. We held them to 27 points. For comparison, Ball State scored 27 points, FL State - 49, Boston College - 31, and NC State - 49. Compared to the season, our defense played as well or better than our defense has played all year. Recall they were on the field for 40 minutes.

Our offense has the skills and abilities to score a lot more points than they did against SCar. From the first, it was clear Boyd was not sharp, nor were the receivers. I have seen that in other games this year. The main reason we lost was our coaches did not adjust to SCar's offensive line. We played as if we could protect Boyd, when it was clear our O line could not give him a protected pocket. But we kept doing it. We abandoned the run and did not go to the pass plays that got the ball out quickly beyond the line of scrimmage. No one knows for sure how it would have affected the outcome, but I believe it would have been different.

Bottom line, if Boyd, Sammy, and Nuk are in their zone, and if the coaches will adjust and take what LSU's defense will give, we can put lot of points on the board.

Don't forget that was against South Carolina's back up running back and quarterback. Actually, the 3rd string running back played most of the 2nd half.

Re: Is Clemson's Offense better than Texas A&M?

Clemson wasn't 100% healthy either, and maybe that is why our defense played better than expected. But our defense didn't lose that game for us, our offense did.

the qb was a coaches decision, don't come on here and

Posted: Dec 27, 2012 4:36 AM

act like he was a savior or something. shaw was cleared to play! and the only rb that was hurt was latty, and that was a few games prior to ours. i guess you played the 5th string left tackle and the waterboy was the starting strong safety. and shouldn't you use the screen name gamecockgatorvoldoredog2cattidetigertripleaggierebel! ( at least i think that about covers all your favotite teams!)


Ya'll will probably beat us. Too bad you consistantly choke

Posted: Dec 27, 2012 1:16 AM

against Bama. I usually pull for you guys to beat Bama. The potential is there for you guys to humiliate us in the fashion that Alabama humiliated you in the BCS Championship game last year.

Is this what you are?

ignorant, lazy, simple-minded and illiterate. But on their part, since they remained unassimilated, the Cajuns managed to act in precisely the same manners as they did before the war. Like most of the Southerners, they loved parties, games, playing cards, and communal get-togethers. But unlike the Americans, the Cajuns continued to work at their own slow paces, which is a work ethic that stands in complete contrast to the modern American idea of work and progress.

Cajuns were described as dreamers and idlers; someone who would rather dream away that actually get to working. The Cajun who overworked was considered to be a rare gemstone and most of them were considered to be mere squatters. Southerners on the whole, did not think much of the Cajun people and their culture because their values greatly negated the close-knit American values of wealth and progress. The Cajuns on the other hand did not respect the American values including the standards regarding education. They were one class of people who completely reveled in being illiterate and this attitude of theirs concerning education posed as another strong reason as to why the Americans looked down on them as 'poor stupid souls'
