Final thoughts on the Georgia game

Final thoughts from David Hood on Clemson's 45-21 loss at Georgia. Full Story »



Totally agree on everything, esp the Tight ends......

We played timid and let the Dawgs have their way with us. I am tired of the big losses. Hope they get this turned around quick!

The facts on the loses are rough! When was the last close game with a ranked opponent that the tigers lost? Auburn 2010? I guess on the flip side you could say that if clemson is close very late in the 4th you have to like their chances?


We were up 10 in the 4th in Tallahassee two years ago. Then

the special teams did their usual allowing two huge returns. The momentum swung, the quiet crowd came alive and the Noles rolled.

Need to remove Adam for punt returns..

WE want get any returns for touchdowns or big yardage with him back there...offensive line was terrible in the second half and that cost us the game.

I was very surprised that we have gotten away from using the tight ends. I wondered this the entire game. Seems like the only time they were in the game they were used for blocking. We used to use our tight ends a lot. Dwayne Allen and Brandon Ford were a big part of the scheme and were targeted often during their time at Clemson. I would like to see us go back to using the tight end position for more than just blocking...


I had told my dad( who does not follow closely but watches

On Saturdays) that we would use the tight ends to neutralize their LB blitzing ability. I especially told him to watch out for #16 because " he is a mismatch made in heaven for us". I got back from the game and had lunch with dad yesterday. He asked me " where was that #16?". I had no answer.....I hope Chad will soon.

On top of that, all the big wins are squeakers... 3 points over UGA, 5 points over OH St, and 1 pt over LSU. That's not really elite. Over the last 3 years we've been a tweener... better than the scrubs but drilled by the big boys. We've won 11 games in consecutive years but lost the division and the in-state rivalry game both years. Our most prolific QB of all time never beat the shamecocks. Beating the dregs of the ACC was never a given under West or Bowden so that's an improvement, but this continual building of expectations followed by public floggings is painful to follow.

I think this goes back to recruiting on the lines and/or the S&C program. We simply aren't bigger, stronger, or tougher than the real teams and it prevents our edge weapons from dominating like we know they could.

You hit the nail on the head. We are not built to slug it out with a physical team. Hopefully the class of 2015 will help in that regard.


any update on the "new wrinkle"? i think it was malzahn's

"quick snap/change of pace", but maybe there was something else they were referencing?

The common denominator in those nine losses

is Dabo. Ask him about the Jekyll and Hyde nature of our team that manifested itself in those games. He said he would get it fixed after West Virginia. So what is the "it" that needs to be fixed?

Go Tigers


Jekyll and Hyde is losing to Duke and Wake Forest, not Top

agree scott, but there's something not right about that

2nd half or similar losses to good teams as dhood mentions.

nothing wrong with losing & you might actually play better in some losses than in some victories based on opponent, but there is nothing "right" about that 2nd half the other night and we've seen it before.

Jekyll and Hyde also applies to
