Clemson's Best Offensive Linemen

Clemson's Best Offensive Linemen
I started watching Clemson football in 1974 and can remember all of the great players over the last forty years. I am in the process of giving my thoughts on the greatest Tigers at every position over that 40 year span. I think it is only fair for me to co

How can Jeff Bostic not be on this list?


Posted: Jun 18, 2013 11:10 AM
 

Yes, he was only All-ACC once, but he's on the All-Centennial team and Clemson Hall of Fame as well as the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame. Following his Clemson career he went on to a 14-yr. career with the Washington Redskins and earned 3 Super Bowl rings.

I would agree but probably because most of his recognition came from the pros

Agree. Without Jeff on the list, it is just plain dumb.***

These lists should be done by someone 65-70 years old

Leaving out way too many good players. Stacy Seegars at #2 is crazy. He was a very good player, but not #2. Jeff Bostic was as good as Kyle Young. What about Harry O in the late 60's. Steve Kenney (sp) in the late 70's was better than most of these guys. The fact that you have Will Merritt on a TOP 20 list is laughable!


He's said his list is '74 on

but yeah Jeff Bostic belongs on the list


Yes, Harry O was an All-American - remember seeing.....

him play when I was a kid - he was an excellent lineman.


Why do people mention when talking about a......

player's success or accomplishments at Clemson how well they did later in the NFL? What a player did/does in the NFL has nothing to do with what they did at Clemson.


Cedric Johnson was Honorable Mention all ACC twice

Think he deserves a spot in the honorable mention category.

First Team All Americans in 1967. Pretty heady stuff for both of these guys to take up two AP o line positions and appear on the Bob Hope show. I believe Larry Csonka was the running back selected. No way you leave these two out. Should have beat Alabama that year in the Valley. Lost a squeaker.


I agree,


Posted: Jun 18, 2013 8:42 PM
 

Both are among the best. That game against Alabama in the Valley was brutal and they held their own.

Joe Bostic at #1 is a no brainer, of course he is a good friend of mine so I might be biased. Surprised Jeff didn't make the list, but he's got Superbowl rings as a consolation.


I understand you have to have a timeframe, but

you did not mention Clemson's highest drafted offensive lineman.

Lou Anthony Cordileone (born August 4, 1937 in Jersey City, New Jersey) is a former American football offensive lineman, primarily guard, who played nine seasons in the National Football League. He is more famous for being traded from the New York Giants to the San Francisco 49ers for quarterback Y. A. Tittle. Cordileone played college football at Clemson and was drafted in the first round (twelfth overall) of the 1960 NFL Draft. In 2013 Cordileone starred in the TV Land reality show Forever Young.[1]

not only Lou but Don Chuy was one of the best all-time tackles and should have been on all-American lists. Also at center Wayne Mulligan. Understand these were before Mickey's time.


Re: I understand you have to have a timeframe, but


Posted: Jun 18, 2013 3:40 PM
 

On all these lists we should have done it for maybe 3 time periods.
1980-Present
1960-1980
Pre-1960.

There will always be disagreement. Different time periods. In the mid-60's Clemson had the biggest o-line in the ACC and averaged 235/man. "Iron Mike"Facciolo was a starting guard, team captain and all ACC and weighed 215.


40 yr rule excludes way too many.....see below:

#1 (without a doubt).....Harry "O"
#2 Lou Cordleone
also Harold Olson, Don Chuy, Vance Hammond

You are correct, and I saw most, if not all, of them.***

Will Merritt? Seriously, Will Merritt? Not even close to being in the top 100.
