For Stoudt, the devil is in the details

Spring practice begins at Clemson next week, and all eyes will be on the quarterback battle. How has Cole Stoudt been preparing for this moment? How much did Tajh Boyd help him? Who has he been working with each Saturday? Full Story »

Great article. I'm really looking forward to the upcoming QB battle. No matter who wins, I think we are going to be in good hands.

A lot of folks believe that a player that waist behind a player most of their college career should be the next man up. And Cole has done the waiting behind Tajh pretty well. But if he isn't hands down better for Clemson for 1 season, then Kelly should start, or we run a two QB system. I just don't see us starting a new QB two years straight when Kelly and Cole both can play through next season. And if Kelly beats out Watson the next year, he will have already a year under his belt. It would be a sad thing for Cole, but I'm about what is best for Clemson and the FB program.

It will be hard to take this job from Stoudt. Will be an interesting battle.


It might be good for Cole to sit out one more year.

The lesson he would learn about patience would be invaluable.

Hello!!! Cole's been in the system for 3 years and his decision making will win us games, Kelly will still get plenty of PT, but we don't need a gun slinger mantality, Kelly will be a great QB for us at some point...bottom line if Kelly wins it in the Spring then he should start, but I don't think he will, don't forget he's coming off a serious injury. Either way play the best QB out of Spring, but Watson needs to redshirt!!!


HELLO!!! Why the rude demeanor towards me?

I was questioning why the guy thinks Cole should sit another year which would end his eligibility....

If it gets any more patient his career will be over lol

Good idea though !!


^^^No idea that Stoudt is a Senior and Kelly isn't

Not funny, he will surprise all of us.

It's your time Cole, I'll be pulling for you!


Cole Stoudt starts....


Posted: Feb 27, 2014 3:11 PM
 

Then Kelly will transfer!

And Deshaun redshirt! But at least it's awesome that we are in a position to have a quality battle that will ensure the BEST QB is on the field leading our Tigers!!

Can't wait for August!!!


Re: Cole Stoudt starts....


Posted: Feb 27, 2014 3:20 PM
 

If Kelly is going to pout and go home if he does not get the starting job, do we really want a whiner to be the starting QB?

I expect the best QB to start.... who ever it is and I expect the second best to be ready to play if needed or the opportunity presents itself.


Stoudt/Kelly duo - cool passer and then the swatcat runner!


Posted: Feb 27, 2014 4:51 PM
 

Watson will redshirt, then backup Kelly the next year - all high draft picks


What the heck is a "swatcat"?***

I just hope we don't see some Kyle Parker ish

As far as chad Kelly possibly getting preferential treatment because he runs his mouth.

The best player should play, period. If it's chad, then fine. If not, it should be someone else.

I really hope our program is past the point of capitulating to any one players demands.

I expect Cole to win the job, but I also wouldn't be surprised to see a 2 QB system during the season. Kelly will probably have certain plays designed for him. There is a lot to work with when you have 2 qb's like this, I expect Morris to throw a few new wrinkles in the playbook.

Dabo won't "capitulate".

Trust THAT!!

If perhaps Deshaun comes in and does a "Jameis Winston" on us and impresses Dabo and Chad Morris....HE will start and Kelly/Stoudt will have to get over it.

IF either Kelly or Stoudt prove themselves worthy of starting then they will start! Period!

The COACHES will decide who is the best fit, and we as fans need to sit back and enjoy the battle instead of over-analyzing the $h..t out of everything!

Go Tigers!!


Winston redshirted***

What does "Kyle Parker ish" mean? If I remember correctly,

Posted: Feb 27, 2014 4:16 PM
 

the capitulation would have been starting Willy Korn over Parker because he was the fan favorite. I have seen no evidence of capitulation since Dabo has been head coach. That statement makes no sense to me.


Kyle was great till speared at Auburn game - better than

You are right, I saw that hit. It changed his career path to baseball.


I love the comment about leadership.

Just be a good teammate and you will have their support. Set the example by working hard and being prepared on Saturday".

Agree and Stoudt was a phenom in H.S. just like Kelly and

Watson. He deserves to start if he is just as good or better than other two!


Based on what I have observed...


Posted: Feb 27, 2014 4:16 PM
 

Stoudt seems to have a cooler head about him and at the spring game three years ago (I think) he threw the ball very well while Boyd struggled.

Only downside I see is that Stoudt and Kelly both look like toothpicks compared to Boyd.

All that said, Clemson is very fortunate to have attracted all this QB talent.


Looks like we will have the bigger running backs so QB does

Posted: Feb 27, 2014 4:56 PM
 

not have to be used as power back, thank goodness!


Re: Looks like we will have the bigger running backs so QB does


Posted: Feb 27, 2014 5:17 PM
 

That's true and hopefully a bigger, nastier O-line.


Re: Based on what I have observed...


Posted: Feb 27, 2014 5:02 PM
 

I'll have to agree with the first response. I think we have all become used to having a bowling ball for a QB with Tajh. Not a lot of QB's are 6-1 and almost 230. However, Cole is TALL. Haha.


Tall so does not have to run as much to spot receivers

Posted: Feb 27, 2014 5:44 PM
 

Also, calm and collected. I just rewatched the OB and as great as Tajh was, he also made some bad mistakes that gave points and field position to OSU. I think Cole will be a better game manager and with our improving defense that combo is a WINNER. Also, it will be exciting to see Kelly come in as big change of pace QB, and I think he will see a lot of time, really confusing the opposing defense coaches. Watson can grow and mature just as Winston did - and all of this depends on injuries of course, we are blessed to have such talent at QB with such diversity of gifts!


Re: Based on what I have observed...


Posted: Feb 27, 2014 5:03 PM
 

Stoudt looks like a bag of sticks to me. Especially when he's in motion. Kelly has a somewhat more beefy frame and I could see him adding 10 pounds of muscle easily. 6-2 and 220 to 225 is a pretty good target for a mobile QB.

Yes, we do have a lot of talent. Let's hope we keep all of it, except Stoudt of course, going into 2015. Having Kelly and Watson as a duo will be just as good as or better than Boyd and Stoudt.


Just wait

till teams are game planning for him.

Cole is very valuable


Posted: Feb 27, 2014 5:02 PM
 

valuable coming off the bench ;)

Stoudt would have already been starting at a whole lot

of D1 schools. we are fortunate to have so much QB talent.

We do Chicken right...it's not just for frying anymore!


Cole World!
