Shaq Smith has to step up


Hate to hear that, isn't he the defensive play caller?

Assuming it will be Tre Lamar. He has been here long enough that he should be able to handle it. Either him or maybe one of the safeties might do it. K'von Wallace possibly

So who gets the start? Shaq or Isaiah Simmons?

The article clearly says J. D. Davis, then Smith.

In a way this helps explain why Dabo has played two or three other LBs thus far this season. Joseph is a super player but Davis has played well and has a lot of snaps already and the new guy is a star just waiting for the chance. Linebacker play is a key against an option team but Dabo will have them ready. Someone will have the assignment to key on the Tech QB and it will be a good player. Joseph likely would have been the guy.

D O'Daniel had the key QB reads the last few years, which is why he had such monster games against Tech... Simmons has the size and ability to be DOD 2.0 and I hope he has a breakout game tomorrow playing that spot.

Hate that for Joseph!

But, this is that crazy stuff that happens when Clemson heads to Atlanta.

Not good. That’s an injury that could linger all season

Certainly hate to hear this and feel bad for KJ. But this is precisely why Dabo insists on getting meaningful reps for backups and developing depth as quickly as possible. I don't expect this to have any real bearing on the outcome of the game. #wetoodeep

Davis is a run-stuffer. We'll be fine.


Hope KJ heals quickly, but we'll be fine with JD Davis

Joseph had 9 tackles last year, but JD had 6 tackles himself as a back up.

Is that a figure of speech or will he really not travel with the team?


I was wondering the same thing. Seems odd.

It's just a bus ride to Atlanta.

road games. Old article, but is the announcement of this: http://www.goupstate.com/article/NC/20090512/Sports/605175343/SJ/

With that in mind, no reason to take a player that is hurt and definitely not playing.

I hope he can bounce back this year. This is one of those injuries that can haunt you for a while. T’s and P’s for your GI, KJ.

Maybe Shaliski should come in and play a couple of games. He would still have a couple games left for his redshirt too.

I injured my groin at the cheetah the last time I road tripped to Atlanta, so far this looks lie another one of those games.

Georgia and Athens just did not offer what I felt would be best for me in the end. Sure, I had a fun time on my visit, but when it comes to playing football I just do not feel comfortable there. And when you consider everything that is going on up there, it makes you wonder just how long Kirby Smart is going to be around. He certainly is no Dabo Swinney or Nick Saban, and let's just leave it there. -Jadon Haselwood

Yeah I recall when they announced the Davis twins would be on the team many of us here frowned and botched about them taking 2 spots and several saying they would never play a meaningful down at Clemson. Guess some of you are eating crow now. Go Tigers go stomp on some bees!!!!!


So this is the worst possible injury against GT.

Whatever we end up beating them by, it would have been substantially worse without this injury.

So, tigerdave2®, I was reading through this post and actually got a little chuckle out of your reference to the mascot (Mizzoo Tiger, I recall) that had the t-shirt gun incident, but got a little heavy with the finger while up-scrolling and ###-I-dentally td’d you my friend!

Will make it up to you on some future posts.
