Tommy Bowden Mini Press Conference
CLEMSON -- Tommy Bowden did not hold a formal press conference on Tuesday because of the off week in the football schedule. However, Tommy Bowden was available to the media by teleconference.
On Justin Miller:
“I can see why Florida, Arkansas, Tennessee recruited him as a wide out. Of course I could see that off high school film myself. There is not a lot of NFL wide outs at his size but there is a lot at corner at his size. He’s tough. He hits a load. On the very first kick off return he hit a guy right smack down the middle and about knocked him out.”
On playing Justin Miller at wide out some time in the future:
“Yes you could very easily see that.”
On Yusef Kelly:
“One of the most impressive things about Yusef so far is toward the end of the game when we have needed first downs he has made some really good runs. And even earlier in the game on goal line and short yardage he has made really some good runs. That’s tough yardage and critical yardage.”
Advantage over FSU due to off week:
“Yeah I think it’s advantage any time you have more time. I can align his offense and defense up with our scout team more than he can. I don’t know whether that will help us or not but I am going to have that opportunity strictly based on number of days.”
This year as close to you have come to bridging the gap with FSU?
“I think the fact we are playing consistent on defense. We have played consistent in spurts before but never four games in a row. When you play good on defense you are going to have a chance every week. Now you have to have some production on offense and not turn the ball over.”
“If the same defense from the last four game shows up I think we will go down there and play well.”
Best you have felt going into the FSU game?
“Probably yes. Simply because the defense is performing.”
