New Story: For the Record


Posted: Jan 8, 2015 9:29 AM
 

 
For the Record

Clemson’s first game of the 2015 football is still 240 days away, an eternity for college football fans who now have to wait for National Signing Day, spring practice, summer workouts and the dog days of summer before their favorite team takes to the field. That doesn't mean we can't look ahead to next season's schedule, however. Full Story »

My one and only concern with losing all of those Seniors is not the talent level to replace, its the leadership! Who do we have that can fill that vocal leadership void left by Grady and Corey Crawford on defense...

I think you will see players like Boulware, Blanks, Kearse

step up in that role. Maybe even a Reader or Watkins on the line. The great thing about these younger guys practicing and playing with the likes of Grady, Corey & Vic is that they not only learn aspects of playing, but also how to be a leader.

I think Shaq Lawson will step up to be the new leader***

agree on all of these, maybe add Lawson!!

Look for the lineup to look similar to this next season...

DEFENSE

SDE - Shaq Lawson
E.Ogundeko or A.Huggins or S. Johnson
DT - Carlos Watkins
Rod Byers or J.Robinson or
DT - D.J. Reader
Scott Pagano or Christian Wilkins
WDE - Kevin Dodd
M.Aiken, R.Yeargin, D.Rogers, A.Bryant
C.Ferrell
OLB - Korie Rogers
T.J. Burrell
MLB - Ben Boulware
Kellen Jones
NB - Dorian O'Daniel
B.J. Goodson or Travis Blanks
CB - Mackensie Alexander
Cordrea Tankersly or Ryan Carter
S - Jadar Johnson
T.J. Green or Jeffrie Gibson
S - Jayron Kearse
Korrin Wiggins or Travis Blanks
CB - hopefully Mark Fields or Kaleb Chalmers
Or Adrian Baker or Marcus Edmond

OFFENSE

LT - Isaiah Battle
Mitch Hyatt or Maverick Morris
LG - Tyrone Crowder
Ryan Norton
C - Jay Guillermo
Ryan Norton
RG - Eric Mac Lain
Justin Falcinelli
RT - Joe Gore
Jake Fruhmorgen or Oliver Jones
TE - Milan Richard
Jordan Leggett or Stanton Seckinger
WR - Mike Williams
T.Thompson
WR - Charone Peake
Deon Cain or Shaddell Bell
WR - Artavis Scott
G.Hopper or R.R.McCloud
RB - Wayne Gallman or Tyshon Dye
Zac Brooks or Adam Coice or C.J.Fuller
QB - Deshaun Watson
Tucker Israel
Nick Schuessler

One of the freshman QB's will earn PT as a freshman, if not both, as we will need a capable and experienced backup. It's my thoughts that while Kelly Bryant looks to be more athletic than DW4, he needs time to learn the system and to develop physically and as a passer, so look for a RS. Tucker Israel is a more polished passer, so I look for him to avoid the redshirt, but eventually Kelly Bryant's skill set will overtake Tucker Israel as the backup in 2016. It's my opinion we will have the best WR corps in the nation by years end if DW4 stays healthy, OL will be improved and deeper, but will have much more potential in 2016. TE can't be any worse this year, as I think Milan Richard will eventually be a Dwayne Allen clone who can block well and be a threat in the passing game. I would love to see Jordan Leggett out wide...at 6'5 250 he could be a nightmare for opposing secondaries. RB will be deeper, more experienced and more talented than ever, and it wouldn't surprise me to see Zac Brooks line up at WR some this year. With all the talent at RB, it wouldn't surprise me to see a transfer or 2, especially with Feaster coming in (hopefully). DL will have little drop off, as I believe Reader, Pagano and Watkins will be great DT's, LB will be better this year, and the secondary will be better and more experienced as well. The defense won't be #1 again, but it will be top 10 and do enough to win games for us with our offense dominating.

What say ye? Thoughts any juan??


No need to worry about Raleigh.

Im in Raleigh too.

They also lost their best WR in Bo Hines.

I think Brissett will play better against us next year but our coverage will be really good and give time to our DLine to put pressure on him again.

I live in Raleigh and this is a sign above every toilet in every men's room at Carter Findley stadium (need to ask me wife if it's the same in the women's). As well, they announcers plead with the State fans to stop peeing in their stadium seats.

We should never lose to the wolfpeckers.


Remember when they did their card stunt and it took

about 15 minutes for the announcer to explain it?

You mean this sign? We were there for the loss in 2011. One of the most miserable games I've sat through. But the only loss to them in the past 11 years. Had tickets to the 2013 game but Delta Airlines made sure I didn't make it home in time to attend.

The single biggest factor in next year's success is based


Posted: Jan 8, 2015 10:21 AM
 

on one person....Deshaun Watson. Will he stay healthy? How many games does he play in?

that's a fair question to ask as he's been nothing but injured since coming here. Even his senior year in high school was marred by knee/leg injury in the playoffs.

IF he can ditch the injury bug, Clemson should be favored in every game. If not...look out, we have nothing at backup QB. You though "three and out Stoudt" was bad this year...wait until its Dr Schuess and two true freshman.


Re: The single biggest factor in next year's success is based


Posted: Jan 8, 2015 10:35 AM
 

Scott or Chance in a version of the wildcat with Gallman or Dye at RB should be able to move the chains.... One of the freshmen QBs should also be ready to go after 2 games against AppSt and Wofford.......

the only factor of the O being better than this year is the OL, If DW only pays 5 games then we will be as good as last year!

Disagree somewhat on the nothing after DW. I truly feel that Israel or Bryant will be a more than capable back up and can step in when asked. We have too many weapons to shut the whole offense down. Maybe we should wait till after the spring to start throwing our backup quarterbacks under the bus. A little too early for that right now.


Worried he might have to beat your coots with one leg again?***

Re: The single biggest factor in next year's success is based

Hey coot,
Why discount the 2 true freshmen? DW was a true freshman this past year and he was okay I'd say. They aren't walk on quality high school kids. Israel has set almost every record in Florida and most analysis say Bryant is even better. Have you not been paying attention? They may not be DW, but with all the other talent on offense the drop off won't be disastrous by any means.


these guys are nowhere near Watson


Posted: Jan 9, 2015 8:12 AM
 

Everybody knew Watson was the real deal. That's why we offered him a scholarship when he was a sophomore in HS.


Re: The single biggest factor in next year's success is based


Posted: Jan 8, 2015 2:02 PM
 

Watson was a true freshman this past season as well, so I fail to see your reasoning. Either of the incoming quarterbacks could be as ready as Watson to make the jump from prep to college.


Re: New Story: For the Record


Posted: Jan 8, 2015 11:12 AM
 

Good article. You are on the money. I hope Wofford is the opener, because of the big change in personnel. But there is much leadership potential on defense and the DL. And coach Swinney is right that the young guys are made of the right stuff.


3 Defensive Freshmen to Watch


Posted: Jan 8, 2015 11:19 AM
 

Albert Huggins

Austin Bryant

Christian Wilkins


I don't see these guys redshirting at all. In fact, I see some if not all 3 of them earning starting positions beside Shaq Lawson and Scott Pagano. By mid season the other freshmen and redshirt from this past season will be ready to cause chaos on the Defensive Front. I'm not too worried about the defense going into next season. Brent Venables is the main reason why. If we had lost him to another school at the end of this season then I would have maybe had some doubts. However, I feel as if we have a shot to make the playoffs next season. From 2015-2018 we should have a nice run if all goes well injury and discipline wise.

Our country won't go on forever, if we stay soft as we are now. There won't be any America because some foreign soldiery will invade us and take our women and breed a hardier race.

When's the schedule released?***


Posted: Jan 8, 2015 12:21 PM
 




ND's offense will be a tough out for a young defense


Posted: Jan 8, 2015 1:03 PM
 

Don't we play them earlier in the season, too? Not sure what all they're returning, but it didn't seem like they had a lot of seniors on that side of the ball.


ND game is Oct 3.


Posted: Jan 8, 2015 1:52 PM
 

We'll have enough games under our belt by then.


Kinda hoping to make it to Louisville next year


Posted: Jan 9, 2015 7:50 AM
 

But a Thursday night scheduling would kill those hopes. :/
