Very good to hear Venables telling that to our players. Looks like he's got plenty of fire in him.

See a lot of intensity out there!! repeat ACC champs?

c'monnnnn August....

Love watching Venables

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 11:19 AM

You can feel the passion he feels and I hope the players can tap into that we they play D. Aside form a few players, our D had little fire or passion in their eyes and a passive D is one that gets 70 put on them.

We need all of our players to have that Price attitude***

The D needs to have a Branch/Thompson/Moore attitude

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 12:27 PM

you could always count on those three to bring it during a game with fire and intensity and low and behold they had all of the sacks, give or take a few.

Would have been nice if they'd done that in miami.

You know, instead of jet skiing and playing with their fee ipods.

really? Just because you saw videos of them jet skiing for a couple hours doesn't mean they didn't practice. They earned that leisure time by winning an ACC Championship.

Earned leisure time and then enjoyed it too much and got 70 hung on them. I am not saying they didn't deserve to have some fun, but too much horsing around and a lot of people that spent a lot of money to see them play got embarrassed along with themselves. Sad to hear reports of them asking the other team to let up. I am tiger through and through, but seeing them play around and then get lit up irks me.

There is absolutely no evidence that proves "leisure time" is what made our boys unprepared. I am willing to bet EVERY single bowl team has similar outings to what ours did, including WVU.

I noticed something really interesting in the Venables

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 11:47 AM

portion of the video. A few guys were REALLY, REALLY dialed into what he had to say (Hawkins, Parker, Anthony, Townsend). And a couple of others--especially #34 (and #46 weren't paying any attention. And both of those guys were some of the WORST guys we had at LB last season. Coincidence, or ????

Not true

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 11:52 AM

I did see #34 Christian look a bit bored and he wasn't a big contributer but our best starting LB was #46 Tig Willard as he always gives his all and plays well.

You are correct, I meant #42

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 11:56 AM

Willard was the "best" of the bunch, but that isn't saying much. The point here is that Venables will coach the talent we have UP to where we expected them to be. Venables put it best: You WILL be exposed 100% of the time if you don't play good technique.


Posted: Feb 16, 2012 12:25 PM

That's Hawkins our MLB whom will most likely be losing his job to Anthony next year, hopefully. I like that to me it seems that Venable will put out there the guys who listen and do the right things. Now Hawkins is rarely ever pit of position but he simply doesn't make plays. He got the most snaps out of any LB last year and Anthony had the ONLY 2 sacks from our LB corp and he was out there roughly 1/4 of the time conpared to Hawkins.

Think Venables will play whoever gets the job done.

Re: Think Venables will play whoever gets the job done.

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 10:27 PM

That's how it should be. I don't care if its Justin Parker, Lateek Townsend, and Spencer Shuey starting (definitely won't be) if they get the job done and can do their job they need to be on the field whether they are 5th year seniors or true freshmen. Clemson is out to win.

Why is the team practicing right now?***

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 11:57 AM

We're celebrating your upcoming probation with a practice***

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 11:58 AM

can you not read? it says drills, not practice

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 11:59 AM


The real question is, are they wearing girdles?***

Was that Mike Bellamy?

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 1:27 PM

If so, glad to see him back.

Re: Was that Mike Bellamy?

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 1:54 PM

It sure was bellamy. His blocking definitely needs work and he needs to gain a few pounds. I hope he works hard this spring

I know Tony Steward is hurt, but that would be the reason he

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 1:48 PM

wasn't in the group of linebackers, correct? NOT because the rumors of him wanting to transfer are true, right?


Yeah.....He hasnt had enough time to come back from that....

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 2:24 PM

knee injury yet. Probably wont see anything out of him much in the spring either. I would expect him to get most of his work in during the summer.


Posted: Feb 16, 2012 3:20 PM

no way will we be seeing him for a few more months. Second major surgury in as many years. I hop ehe comes back mentally strong as well. That's got to be messing with his mind

Looks like Davis now 24 and Vic now with LBs***

Posted: Feb 16, 2012 10:03 PM

Saw that but it's unlikely

Posted: Feb 17, 2012 11:21 AM

Vic is trying to back up Crawford as the Bandit DE. besides he never worked out at LB and with the numbers there, and the young talent, he wouldn't see the field.
