It is rather humorous. Watson adjusting to his brace. Battle with indigestion. And what about that annoying bandaid on Watson's elbow? More possible indigestion on Thanksgiving day.
Watson needs to start and get the game off on the right foot.
Everyone have a great Thanksgiving. Serve up some gamecock on Saturday.


I think if Cole starts

and goes 3 and out first couple drives, we'll see Watson take over rest of game. Watson will play 90% of game and may be 100% if he does well next couple days

If Watson is that capable of playing, WHY ON EARTH

would you start Stoudt?

TIA.

I've lustened to radio and read all opinions here. Everyone is so freakin fired up about DW being ready to play that your only thought is Dabo has some insane loyalty to Cole

No one has suggested the other obvious thought......... If DW is NOT ready, would you tell Spurrier that??????? #### No!!! You really think Spurrier would think Dabo starts Cole IF DW CAN PLAY????? Do you really think Dabo would? But...........have you considered that DW is not even close to ready? Makes sense to me to tell the hated enemy he's playing thus Spurrier has to prepare for DW. There is no way in #### Dabo goes with Cole if DW is cleared to play.
You all sound so smart but NONE OF YOU consider the more real scenario. IF your franchise of the future is risking his and the teams future for one really meaningless game because he's not healthy........ He will not play. And I'm sorry to say it but it DWs bright future and his health, this really is a meaningless game.


Meaningless game???

Can you read?!?! I'm saying "big picture" in DWs career this game is just one game. If he's 100% then play him.

My point and question to you is.......even tho this is "THE GAME" , are willing to risk the knee of Watson to win this one game? Yes it's important cuz of the rivalry but it's not going to get us into the playoffs, it's not for the national championship, it's not the last game of DWs career. On the national scene it's meaningless. So again, do you want to risk the knee of the guy already labeled the best ever at Clemson for one game?????

If you answered yes to that question, you go up to DW and tell him that. Tell him you're willing to risk HIS future so you can brag to your friends at work.

Do you remember RGIII? He tried to play with a strained LCL....ended up tearing his ACL. Never been the same since. Has gone fr Rookie of the year to NFL bust in two years.

It is not meaningless. We have to get this rivalry turned around now so that we have confidence in the future. We also probably go back to the Orange Bowl if we win with a chance for a 10 win season.


Re: If Watson is that capable of playing, WHY ON EARTH

What I mean is, compared to DWs future, it's meaningless if he's risking his future by playing hurt.
I'm not an idiot. Of course this game means a lot to players and fans. But enough to risk your best players college and potentially pro career? That would be stupid.


Dont be an idiot

Do you honestly believe that Dabo would risk his future if hes not medically clear? If the doctor clears him, then hes in shape well enough to play...He can get injured again just like any other player


Re: Dont be an idiot


Posted: Nov 26, 2014 8:29 PM
 

If he's practicing,l "full speed", he's medical cleared to play.

Why not keep the "Ole Ball Sack" guessing as to which QB he has to prepare for?!

If Watson is cleared by the DR's, then what is Dabo suppose

Posted: Nov 26, 2014 8:30 PM
 

to do? If DR's clear him, which I believe they have, since he is practicing, then why wouldn't Dabo play him?

Regardless of who plays or who starts, Spurrier will only be game planning for Watson. The offense only gets easier to defend with Stoudt in.

+1

Defending against Cole is easy.


Do you really think Dabo starts Cole if DW is ready to play?


Posted: Nov 26, 2014 10:47 PM
 

History says he will. Just saying.


waah-wah, waah-wah-wah-waaaah...

On and on and on and on and on with the know it alls...jeez.

2020 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg

I wouldn't, just saying that may be the case


Posted: Nov 26, 2014 8:28 PM
 

I hope not, i'd take a 50% Watson over Stoudt

Agreed. The Peake and Jenkins mystery report.


poor cooter fans arent going to know what hit 'em


Posted: Nov 26, 2014 8:20 PM
 

If/when Superman Watson lights 'em up on the field Saturday. I think that Clemson really does have a wonderful chance of not just winning the game but blowing it out. Cant wait til Saturday @ noon!! Go Clemson Tigers!!!!

The one thing that the Coaching staff has not said is that DW is medically cleared to play. He has taken first team snaps, but is off limits to contact. This could be a.ploy to keep Slurrier guessing, but you can bet the "Ole Ball Sack" is preparing for DW and if any one else is back there at QB, he is ready with a blitz package from you know where. This is a very important game to all of us, but it's not worth DW getting injured again and miss everything to preseason camp. The O line is going to have to step up and if the RB has to stay back to help block the blitz, so be it. All out blitz may give Cole or DW a chance to pick apart their secondary with the passing game. Hopefully, that will stop the blitz and open up the running game. GO TIGERS !!!

Did you catch that? " I think we're in better shape this week than we were last week.”...Dabo's sly retort to what Spurrier said the weekend of Watson's injury at Georgia Tech. He's so funny sometimes!


I think he's got a good chance to play"


Posted: Nov 26, 2014 9:46 PM
 

If he had a chance would you tell? No I'd say he's not for sure. That's me

Cole was GREAT!!! again according to Dabo


Posted: Nov 26, 2014 10:52 PM
 

DW was OK and improving but Cole was GREAT. That was all I got from that story. According to Dabo Stoudt was GREAT!


Re: New Story: Swinney on Watson: "I think he's got a good chance to play"


Posted: Nov 27, 2014 5:55 AM
 

Spiller, Hopkins, Watkins - all special players that lost to SCAR on more than one occasion. Watson doesn't make or break this team. The Clemson Tigers are bigger - let's hope we're the better team on Saturday.


Why would it matter which QB ends up starting to Spurrier


Posted: Nov 28, 2014 10:52 AM
 

He only actually has to prepare for Deshuan.
