(starters and back ups) from arguably the best DL in CFB and then adding Xavier Thomas and getting Yeargin back from injury.

Don't forget Justin Mascoll, Josh Bell, and Darnell Jefferies either.

Well SOMEBODY is going to have to redshirt.

It's one thing to have depth, but it's another thing to have 16 guys that could start for the coots.

Shockingly... it would actually be 19 guys on the DL if all 3 come back

True, but Ferrell, Bryant, Wilkins, Robinson, Huggins

Yeargin, Register, and likely Lawrence would all leave together. That is 8 players. We would need to sign 4-5 more DL guys in the next class, just to get back to where we were in number of DL players available for the 2017 season.

Just think of it as 5. The other 3 are bonus for next year and some of the other 5 may stay

We have 16 guys from our 1981 team that could start for the coots.

Hope this is true and If this is and I was coaching an opponents school, I would just forfeit so my players would stay healthy. These guys with the backups, total disaster for opponents. Watch out you dumb coots, you are doomed.


If true this will be Clemson's best D-Line ever***

I truly think it'll be one of the most dominant in college football history.

I agree with you - have to give props to Bama's motivation and their game plan. They took away our pass rush with the quick screens etc. By the time we adjusted it was too late.

Defense played well enough to win the game.

Not dominant, but did plenty, and more than could be expected given how long they were on the field. Bama still had four more minutes TOP over the game, but that includes our ridiculous six to eight minute drive in the fourth quarter.

The defense held up admirably given the position they were put in.

Lentz is simply quoting Tony Pauline and Pauline is the worst sort of twitter hack.


Actually he's "claiming" multiple sources.

Whether his "claims" true or not, well, that's another story .

“Tony Pauline, NFL Draft analyst and publisher of DraftAnalyst.com, further confirmed the sources stating on Twitter, “… Clemson coaches are telling people they (are) reasonably confident all three defensive linemen, Christian Wilkins, Clelin Ferrell & Austin Bryant will return to Clemson this season.” - this is the only named source other than the ridiculous assertion that Dabo Swinney told him so. If you think Dabo shared their intentions on the reco

...on the record before they were ready to announce then I have a bridge to sell you. Pauline has been featured on 107.5 in Columbia numerous times and has specialized in bashing our players. He a may comeback but Lentz nor Pauline have any more idea than you or I.

"Clemson will retain the services of two of the most dominant players in college football for another season, according to multiple sources and head coach Dabo Swinney."

So - now that he’s been proven wrong - what would you like to quote me? Or do you believe Wilkins told Swinney he was staying, Swinney immediately called this one and only reporter to go on the record with, then Wilkins changed his mind? Seems more likely a local reporter saw someone else going on the record and thought he’d play his hand. If you’re still sticking with this guy you’re calling Coach Swinney a liar. Pick your side.


Zach's sources were correct

The final announcement from Christian Wilkins was just delayed. Your original post declared that Zach Lentz didn't have any sources other than Tony Pauline and accused him of being a twitter hack.

"Lentz is simply quoting Tony Pauline and Pauline is the worst sort of twitter hack."

You shouldn't denigrate a journalist's character like that without proof. He said he had multiple sources. The reference to Tony Pauline was just additional confirmation of his own work.

Peace out.

Wilkins and Swinney contradicted Lentz. If you think Swinney told Lentz unequivocably, as his article states, that Wilkins was coming back then you are a fool. Lentz either betrayed something told off the record or simply made it up - that is self-evident and deserving of denigration.


Re: Zach's sources were correct

Lentz never stated that Swinney told him personally. That's not even in the article as you claim. The original article didn't even reference Dabo Swinney at all. The online article was updated after Dabo Swinney publicly confirmed that Austin Bryant and Clelin Ferrell were coming back at the team awards banquet. You falsely attribute that to a claim by Lentz that he had Dabo Swinney as a source.
