Note to Charone Peake

Posted: Oct 10, 2015 9:54 PM

The great Teddy Roosevelt said it best:

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

Don't listen to the cold timid souls who have never been in the arena...the ones who call themselves fans. Battle on young man. You may be the man who catches the TD to beat FSU or to seal a playoff birth. Real Clemson fans are behind you 110%.

Best blocking WR on the team

It's more to what goes on than catching passes. I have confidence that Peake will make a catch on offense that will be game changer for us. I still believe in him.

Did you say the same about Cole Stoudt? Guy wasn't the best but tried his damndest. Same with Peake.

I say that advice from Theodore applies to any athlete. I've been in the arena at the HS and college levels, and had my struggles. My head coach actually shared this with me during a mighty tough patch. It doesn't take away the reality that we as fans will be critical. It's human nature. Im afraid I'm now one of the cold timid souls. My intent with the post was not to call out frustrated fans.

I'm sure as a Tiger grad and avid fan I rode the same roller coaster as other fans with Cole's senior season. His finale against Oklahoma definitely was testament to the high achievement Roosevelt mentions as one possible prize for those who persevere.

Peake is a 1000 times more talented than Stoudt***

Peake's block sprung Wayne for a TD.

I was also delighted to see Jordan block and ###### up everything that came his way. Looks like we have a team now not just a QB and some fancy pants WRs.
