Excellent ETN.

And look at the accolades thrown on Ryan Finely. Compare his stats to Trevor Lawrence and tell me who deserved the accolades. 24 TD's and 9 picks is better than 24 TD's and 4 picks....151.9 QBR is greater than 154 QBR. One team is 9-3, another team is 13-0 and in the CFP.

Clemson math...not up to ESPN standards.

that stat. You had it sorted by total yards.


Oops, misunderstood your point, nvm.

Finley did it without a running back like Etienne.

Total QBR:
Finley 81.4
Lawrence 78.9

Also you mention records, when in reality Lawrence is 8-0.

Technically, Lawrence is 13-0, as long as you don't say "as a starter". He played in all 13 games so far.

I think it was the rushing yards that separated the Ryan Finely from Trevor Lawrence. Trevor only had 144 yard rushing where as Ryan had 25 yards. That's a big difference between the 2.

ETN is a victim of his own success.

Every now and then their are players who make it look so easy that people think it must be and don't give them the credit they should.

People think because ETN would simply run through defenders that the defenders must have been sub-par.

I hope next year he gets the acclaim he deserves.


ETN has a special talent that sets him apart

He has speed so that when he breaks free of the line you can go ahead and start up the band. But what helps him get through the line is his vision. He sees the holes and can make adjustments better than any back I have ever seen. Watch some of his runs very carefully and you can see where he sees an opening to cut through that most backs would never even think about doing that. But he is a strong runner when getting through the defensive backfield and can shake off tacklers better than most but his vision is what makes him so special.

You are correct that he makes it look so simple that people do not understand what is happening a fault the defense rather than giving him credit. We will find out how down the ACC was this year during the bowl games.

Now the one man that is causing the four team playoff to be so controversial and complaints about who is being left out is Dabo. When the four team playoff was announced it was figured that the ACC would probably be the conference left out most years. Dabo nixed that idea and now everyone wants it expanded so that the B1G and Pac-12 aren't left out so often. It was OK when it was thought that the ACC would be left out so blame Dabo for the problems with the four team playoff.

+1 great point, " It was OK when it was thought that the ACC would be left out so blame Dabo for the problems with the four team playoff. "

(Although I don't think going to 8 is a good idea)

I agree with his vision. One thing that has changed and is only going to get better is his patience. Last year he would not follow his blockers which ended up hurting him a little. This year he hasn't done that near as much and as the season has progressed he's gotten better at it. It's definitely going to get interesting the next 2 games. If his patience is there he should have decent days against the next 2 opponents as well.
