He said they’re kids and need to enjoy the college experience. Williams appears to have hurt it in a basketball game.

It was that dang scrawny ### Bama kicker that must have hurt Nyles. Probably got him with his skinny elbows when Nyles tackled him during that fancy trick play Saban tried on us. Now it all makes sense!

If pigs are so smart, why do 66% of them use weak and inferior materials during construction?


It's obvious Clemson will lose the Spring Game.

Are their any tickets left? I’d love to take the family to the spring game!!

Anybody willing to sell or give their tickets to a needy family lol???

It’s going to be awesome to see the new talent.

Wish the loaded 2020 defensive class had signed this year. We can’t afford to lose much on the D-line, especially at DT. Hope Pinckney and Williams have a speedy recovery and the freshmen are quick learners!

It’s hard to replace the likes of Wilkins / Lawrence inside and injuries suck but I think our linebacker play is going to be elevated this year.

Go Tigers!


Lawrence didn't play against #1 and #3 and we smoked them

This is exciting to me...I love Nyles and know he'll start, but I think Xavier Kelly has the most potential at the position. People forget he was our top prospect back in 2017 and a ridiculous athlete. He just hasn't had Room on the depth chart to put it together.

Maybe this helps us develope depth at DT over the spring.

Dabo knows these two can play. Opens up reps for the new guys. Get a good look at what rest of team can do. Hate they are hurt, but nothing serious. Dabo may want to shut down that intramural basketball team though.

I think Dabo wants his DTs and DEs to have really good hand eye coordination, blocking a shot on the basketball court uses the same muscle skills as tipping a pass at the LOS! Besides it is good exercise.

Nope, not the end of the world but it’ll sure make their day. They were already sky high at lunch over sorrels. I really thought that might be our little surprise today... or at least a last minute DL signee.

Have to give credit where credits due, they smoked us on dline recruiting this year.

Coach V is working on a 2 down linemen scheme with 5 LBs as we speak. Just walk two or three of them up into the gaps and blitz every play.

BV will have a great D no matter the injuries. Absolutely, in addition, the offense will cover this year.

If both Pinckney and Williams are 100% by the first game we should be fine. Looks like we have X. Kelly and Jeffries behind them and then the two recruits - Davis and Johnson. A prolonged recovery or any additional injuries may put us in a bind. I know Dabo doesn’t like to take transfers. Any chance he takes an experienced DT transfer under these circumstances?

I would agree this, if any time would be a chance to get one. What about that fella from Michigan that has two years left. I understand why he doesn’t but sometimes you just have to. Never know the situation with Cash either or other injury or someone quit and becomes a jehava witness... who knows.

Wonder if that grey shirt oline mason has ever played D? Might be his chance. Afterall, everyone just knew Yeargan was coming back.

If you are “down” to playing X Kelley you are doing ok! That kid is a playet

I think X Kelley rocks. My concern is more rotation and depth if we experience any other setbacks at this position.

We really have a lot of talent ..but the lack of size and mass might give us trouble with a good offensive line coming at us. ..
I know the coaches are in control but i don't know why we have not signed any major big talent at the inside defensive tackle spot??
