So near, and yet…

Speaking of the Murphy sack, check this out.

Well, shit.  JT was even looking that way before the bottom dropped out.

    Not good, but Erickson did a job on Bresee on that final drive.

    Boy that sucks. McConkey would’ve cruised into the end zone.

    One of the rare times Clemson brought more than 3. If Ericson picks Murphy up at all that is 6 with McConkey.

    I’m probably showing my ignorance about offensive line play, but was Erickson supposed to just stand there not hitting anybody just in case the above happened? If Murphy had not made that move, would we be criticizing Erickson for standing there not hitting anyone?

    The wife’s cuz scores of TJD tosses that ball.

    Looks to me that JT looked elsewhere, because he did have time to get the throw off to McConkey if he’d focused there. (Not that this was his fault…but in a perfect world and all, that play could have worked even with the missed blitz pick-up.)

    A game of inches and fractions of a second.

      exactly……primary receiver was probably covered, which gave him little time to look for his next option. 2 to 3 seconds is not a lot of time, everybody has to do their job for it to work..

      would have helped if we had a RB in the backfield to pick up the looping blitz….which is pretty much what we did to them ALL night (loop).

      not always as easy as it looks.

      one of the best games that I’ve seen the dawgs play when all is considered….give the team an A+, planned their work and worked their plan. kinda reminds me of the 9-6 game (’11) between Bama & LSU.

      dawgs came, they saw and they conquered….in what I would consider Clemson’s own backyard.


      • There were plenty of Dawgs in the stadium. It was as close to a neutral site S you could get. Charlotte is closer to Clemson of course, but Dawg Nation showed up (4th quarter Krypton/Light Up BoA showed it).

    God love Ericson as a trusty back up, but if Salyer bumps inside moving Ericson to the sideline we’ll be better off assuming one of the 5 star OT’s realizes their talent potential.

  9. On of the young tackles need to step up so they can kick JS inside.

    As I mentioned yesterday, not really sold on Luke.

    Ah…. Just like last year. Chock full of “we almost did it!”

    The Old Wheel route. Maybe every team has a problem covering this.

    Clemson’s defense was very have to just give it to them that they made some plays. That was one occasion. I don’t think there was time to get the pass out to him. Taking the sack and not fumbling was the right decision.

    I’m with the poster in an earlier post saying why would you use a one armed Olineman at guard when you have all the backups in the world. Ericson might be a good center but he was the weak link in the line Saturday. Luke needs to show me something about pass blocking. So far we are just like we ever were, at least with Pittman we had a line that was huge and could get in the way. Lukes mobile guys are subject to getting run over. Thankfully we can still run block when the other team’s D is exhausted.

    Let’s see what the dial-up for UAB. Hopefully we air it out regardless of who plays.
