Venables stays on the attack, Tigers knock 'Noles backwards

The Clemson defense gave up several big plays late Saturday night, but with the game on the line Brent Venables dialed up the pressure and helped dial up a Clemson win. Photo by Marina Vastola / USATODAY Full Story »

Absolutely the way to play defense. Aggressive and not giving the QB time to find an open receiver. Prevent defenses do nothing but allow the offense to march down the field. Play the way you have played the whole game and you will come out on top.

To use a phrase from my youth, "dance with the one who brung you."

If you get to the end of the game and are leading, they why change what you're doing?

Interestingly, the sack on 3rd down was against a 3-man rush, and both Wilkins and Big Dex got to Fran Swa. On 4th down, the entire D-line plus 2 Backers all came. Good call, good execution. I was glad to see Ben corral him, because you know someone had to be open. My old high school coach always said that "the best pass defense is the quarterback flat on his back."

I didn't want to give you a TD because it felt like kicking a puppy, but then looked at your post again.

Did Dabo or Brent say why they accepted holding on 4th & 13?

I would have expected them to decline the holding penalty at the 50 yard line with 49 seconds left to set up 4th & 13 instead of 3rd & 23 against a talented, dangerous passing attack on a night when our DBs were constantly getting flagged for PI.

I could see an argument to be made either way but I think most coaches would gamble on stopping one 4th & 13 play in order to win-- especially late in the game when your DBs are probably getting a bit gassed.

The clock and FG range seemed a bit irrelevant because they needed a 1st down to even attempt a FG.

I also questioned that call for the same reasons. After ncstate and this game I have finally learned to stop questioning and enjoy the outcome.

Six of one, half dozen of the other. It was a gamble either way. Thank God it turned out right.

I'm really surprised this question hasn't garnered more attention. We all know it's water over the ### but I don't get that decision at all. I would think you'd always take the fourth and thirteen.
Does anyone think that might be why I'm not a coach? :)

last few years. I remember many t-netters begging Tigers NOT to go in Prevent defenses. Many pts. have been put on the board in last few minutes, when we were ahead by a substantial margins. Notre Dame, USuck and Syracuse last year, N C State, Troy, and Auburn this year for sure!

Tigeron, couldn't agree more. Linebacker play has been used to contain QB on rushes more often instead of covering in the mid/backfield. It's been good for us for TFL, but also has it's setbacks with holes in the secondary.
