Clemson has discovered the key to Todd Gurley’s success.

All that tape watching has paid off, I’m afraid.  Clemson defensive tackle DeShawn Williams shares an insight about Georgia’s top running back so profound that, well… it could change everything:

“… Gurley, you have to hit him before he gets his momentum going. He gets his momentum going and he’s hard to stop because he’s hard to stop.”

“He’s hard to stop because he’s hard to stop.”  That sound you hear is the collective forehead slapping of SEC defensive coordinators having a V8 moment wondering why they hadn’t realized that before.

August 31st can’t get here soon enough.

  1. Mack trucks are hard to stop because they are hard to stop…

    Williams must be majoring in Physics

    In 222 carries last year, Gurley only lost a total of 30 yards … good luck with that approach Mr. Williams

      that’s just a nasty stat!!!! GO DAWGS!

    • Will (the other one)

      This is something that’s really standing out to me when rewatching last season’s games. He also had some great runs with very poor to middling blocking (including some TDs).

    That is why the cost of an education at Clemson is so high!

  7. Mayor of Dawgtown

    Give the guy a break. What he said was the truth even if it came across as stupid.

    My favorite quote was, “We watched the South Carolina game, the Florida game and the Alabama game. Those are good games for us to watch because we do similar things on defense.”

    Reeeeeally?

    Well, this guy isn’t the sharpest spoon in the shed.

      I just gotta call you out here. It’s sharpest “knife” in the drawer” like kitchen utensil drawer. Knifes are sharp. Spoons aren’t sharp. Vs. Sharpest “tool” in the shed. OK? I’m just gonna leave it there and give ya a break. Mayor’s right. I hope you realize that now.
      just sayin’

        I’m really hoping may sarcasm meter is broken and that your comment is just as much a joke as mine was. I’m surprised you’ve never heard anyone purposely mess up the expression. It’s pretty common around these parts. It’s basically just a ridiculous way of saying that the person you’re talking about is even more stupid than the original expression would convey.
        As far as mayor being right…..yes he is. The truth the guy was getting at is spot on, but that doesn’t mean I can’t poke fun at his redundancy.

    hahahahaha I can’t wait to see the stats for Keith and Todd. It’s going to be ridiculous. Murray might even throw for three-50 or so. hahaha man oh man. GATA DAWGS!

    He’s gonna need better quotes to challenge Yogi Berra. ‘The place got so busy, nobody goes there anymore.’ or ‘Cut my pizza into 8 slices, I don’t think I can eat 12′.
