A Clemson Team Breakdown from a Clemson Fan; and Tailgate Information

Clemson

The following write up comes from Chris Hall, who is a big-time fan of the Clemson Tigers. In fact, his twitter profile says “my blood runs Clemson Orange.” So you have to appreciate that passion. Chris also has his own blog, sportstalkwithchrishall.blogspot.com, and he was nice enough to send us a personal game preview for this Saturday’s matchup between Louisville and Clemson.

Chris tells you all about Clemson’s team, which is great if you want to learn about the opposition before Saturday. For anyone traveling to the game, he also provides some tips on parking, eating, tailgating, and more.

Give him a follow on twitter @CHallSportsTalk and check out his preview!

Offense

What a difference two weeks makes. After letting one slip away in Tallahassee in overtime and dropping to 1-2 on the season, Tiger fans were understandably upset. Some of these “fans” were even calling for Swinney and Offensive Coordinator Chad Morris to be fired. Enter true freshman quarterback Deshaun Watson. The 6-2 205 dual-threat gunslinger from Gainesville, GA has lived up to the hype and truly is a special player. In his first start against North Carolina, he threw for a school record and tied an ACC record with 6 touchdowns in a 50-35 victory. He makes it look easy and has the poise of a 5th year senior in the pocket. Watson has provided a spark to not only this Clemson offense but the entire team and fan base. The Tigers have posted back to back wins and are averaging 45.5 points per game with the freshmen running the show. Optimism in flying high again around Tigertown and everyone is excited to watch this special player develop and continue what looks to be a very promising career. More importantly, Morris and Swinney’s job security, according to fans, is safe again.

Clemson Has Their Own Issues on the Offensive Line

For all of the criticism surrounding the play of Louisville’s offensive line, the Clemson Tigers enter Saturday with plenty of question marks of their own. The local paper, GreenvilleOnline.com, explains it a little more.

Clemson has endured a rash of injuries and setbacks along the offensive line. That has transformed the depth chart into a shallow talent pool. For instance, this week, senior Reid Webster is listed as the starter at right guard.

And the backup at left tackle.

And the backup at center.

And the backup at right tackle.

“We went into last week thin, and we came out thinner,” offensive coordinator Chad Morris said, alluding to the broken foot interior lineman Jay Guillermo suffered Saturday against North Carolina State.

Guillermo, who has logged snaps at guard and center, will miss three to five weeks. Junior tackle Joe Gore missed the N.C. State game and will miss at least another week after undergoing an appendectomy last week. Shaq Anthony, whom Gore beat out for the starting right tackle position through August camp, transferred before the start of the season.

Clemson closed the spring with 10 linemen on its depth chart. They will face Louisville with seven.

Louisville coaching search should be done soon

Bobby Petrino 2

I have been getting updates and keeping up with the coaching search all day long. For those in my little circle of “Cards info” friends, you have been getting texts from me all day. We here at CSZ rarely reveal everything that we know, because sometimes it just isn’t our place to do so. So we discuss it with each other so we at least have someone to talk to it about and all be on the same page with information. But I realized that while some of us may have been tweeting some hints today, we really haven’t posted an update, so here we go.
