A Night in Death Valley: Louisville at Clemson Preview

Last Time: In a primetime Thursday night thriller, Louisville fell short against the Tigers 20-17. Louisville cut the lead in the fourth quarter on a 100-yard return from Traveon Samuel, and had one final possession to tie the game after missing a field goal. However, a botched snap in field goal range and an intercepted Hail Mary ended Louisville’s hope of an upset bid, sending them to 0-3 for the first time since 1984.

Clemson currently leads the series 2-0, with both games decided by three points.

About the Clemson Tigers

Clemson has, quite literally, everything you want in college football; top five head coach (Dabo Swinney), an elite quarterback (Deshaun Watson), incredible skill players (Wayne Gallman, Mike Williams, etc.) and a good defense. There’s a reason this team was a kickoff return touchdown away from their first national championship since 1981.

Keith Kelsey Feature On Sports Center

KELSEY1

This just in. Keith Kelsey is a great person. If you watched the feature done on him that aired tonight you will agree. If you don’t then you have no soul. The entire family is great. I met the Kelseys a few years back at a home game. They didn’t know me from anyone. They seen my 55 Tshirt & talk sparked. That was when I had to tell the family my shirt wasn’t in support of their son entirely but that it was a marketing tool for my website & my massive, unearned ego. (not really but..) I thought an awful lot about Keith though from the day he stepped foot on campus. The memorable commitment video all the way up until now, he has always been a class act. The entire family is amazing. I texted his dad after the sportscenter feature aired and he said: I lost it. I would have too had I not been in a room with other people trying to be cool. Here is the feature that aired live about Keith and his weekly Monday visits to the hospital to visit retired Air Force Don Wheatley who has an aggressive form of Leukemia. Words from me cannot describe the story. Here is the Video.

Nunnsense: The Friendly Clemson Rivalry Is Over. Or Is It?

acc

The Louisville Cardinals have just started their third season in the Atlantic  Coast Conference. The first two football seasons were successful but both contained close losses to perennial conference and national power Clemson. The unanimous takeaway from both fan bases is just how friendly and hospitable the other fans were during their visits to the opposing schools. A mutual respect between Clemson and Louisville was earned and expected to continue. But will it continue after about 8:22 of Saturday night?

Simply Lamarvelous

lamar

 

For the national media, Lamar Jackson has exploded onto the scene. For those of us close to the Ville we have seen it all along. Flashes against Auburn, Clemson & A&M last year to down right dominance through 4 games this year. He was asked what the biggest difference was between this year and last year to which he responded: I know the entire playbook now. Amazing. He may be a Football player but has fancied himself as a grader of performances. D’s and F’s he has given himself this year. Glad his grading doesn’t determine whether or not he can play. Maybe the single most dynamic player we have even seen here at Louisville and he is just a Sophomore. Some people call him the Football version of Russdiculous. Some have in fact dubbed him Lamarvelous. The shoe fits though. Taking on many defenders at a time and taking the ball to the goal(line), he really does mirror the Louisville legend of the hardwood. We are in for some exciting times here in the Ville so I believe we should sit back, relax and let this season sink in. Leave the trash talking to the guys who need to do that to prove something. We don’t need to talk in press conferences. We don’t need to talk on Twitter. Louisville Football does all the talking on the field.

 

Some national people have said that he has taken the national scene by storm. ESPN’s Adam Scarborough posted an article today that explains from the national perspective how Lamar has come from nowhwere. I hope you enjoy.
