Written on Tigers lose lead, drop grudge match with Liberty:

......" Problem no clutch hitters, sloppy fielding, only two good starters and 1 ok, two dependable relievers.".....

Jack is not interested in "pitchers". He only recruits fastball pitchers. our batters can only practice against a real pitcher in a game.
Remember that recent gamecock pitcher that beat us EVERY time and only had an 86 mph "fastball" ???

Team play is a beautiful thing.

Written on When OL holds its own 1-on-1 with DL, it's a win-win scenario for Tigers:

....""All those senior defensive linemen who weren't very good two years ago are pretty good now," said Swinney following the Tigers' Wednesday practice session. "They've got great depth."......

For years, we've been told every spring that the problem was fixed. Hope we have finally turned a corner instead of just better "spin".

Written on Raised tough, Boulware brings physicality, emotion to Tigers:

A hard-nosed LB like Clemson used to be famous for,,,,,,,,,before Brother-in-law ruined the entire group,,,,,,,,,,then moved on to DBs ........then to "unannounced" special teams coach.

Written on Coach K: 'Brad's done one of the great jobs in the country in coaching his team':

in response to YabbaDaboDooDoo:

Hood got hit twice: once by Nnoko with the right arm attempting a strip (he didn't get any ball) and then the shoulder block by KJ McDaniels. Yeah Hood embellished it but the replay shows that the question wasn't whether he got fouled but which of the 2 fouls they called.

Your still shot doesn't show anything. Someone who didn't see the final play who looks at your picture would draw the conclusion that Thornton came down on Hall's arms. That's not what happened and you know it. Thornton reached in and poked the ball away. As you can tell from the photo, the ball is already out and Hall is beginning to flail his arms in a spectacular tumble out of bounds. ESPN showed the replay how many times in slow-motion? And every time they pointed out that there wasn't contact. Thornton reached in and hit all ball.

The worst part of all this is that now Clemson fans are going to scream about how an official cost them the NCAA tournament and not the missed opportunities against Auburn, UMASS, and Arkansas or the putrid losses at Wake Forest, at Notre Dame, or the home game against FSU. Quite frankly, your tournament chances were ruined when Brad Brownell made your port-a-potty of a schedule. Get a coach who can recruit talent and isn't afraid to play someone decent.

How exactly does getting the ball stripped include the inside feet of dukies on either side of Hall INSIDE his center of gravity..?????

Written on Brad Brownell: 'It's a bang-bang play. We did exactly what we wanted':

we bumped their player on his way to the hoop....got called for a foul and they went up by one................Rod Hall got tripped by TWO dukies that didn't have the cajones to block him and no foul is called...................Real class ACC, Duke, K, and referees.

Written on Tigers roar back to 69-65 OT win:

Go Tigers !!!

Written on Tigers down 'Canes, reach 10-win ACC mark:

Congratulations to hard, smart work.

We are moving on up !!!!!!!!

Written on Five to watch on defense as the Tigers kick off spring practice on Wednesday:

Clemson ALWAYS had hard-nosed linebackers like Ben Boulware, until "brother-in-law" ruined the whole corp, before moving on to ruin the DBs.

Remember when everyone was calling for a Special Team's coach and we actually had one, but T B was afraid to admit it was "brother-in-law"?

Written on Tigers' woes continue at Western Carolina:

from Basketball of all things........."Overachieving Tigers have shown grit, have goals on table".........

Written on Dabo not worried about throwing, catching, running; but OT is another matter:

We don't need no stinkin' O-Line.
We've gotten along since T B w/o one.

Written on Tigers top Terps in double OT:

Way to hang tough !!!

Written on Down to their last out, Gamecocks rally for 4 ninth-inning runs to sweep Tigers:

Jack seems to have a history of leaving pitchers in long enough to seal a defeat.

Jack can't be bothered with recruiting a "pitcher" ..... strictly fastball ...

Remember the Gamecock pitcher that beat us EVERY time, with a "fastball" of 84 mph ??

Written on USC takes game one, 9-6:

Legget once again snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

Why ruin a fine pitcher like Gossett by leaving him in to flounder at a high pitch count ??

grand slam for crying out loud.
I don't know that much about baseball, but I saw it coming down the road. ....like watching a train wreck, just couldn't look away.......then hate myself for daring to hope.

Written on Nuk and Sammy together again? Not likely, but a possiblilty according to Mayock:

in response to radtiger:

One word for you.......H A T E R

you gonna tell me that he even PLAYED in the Clemson game... ??????..even against Clemson?
...........homer.........

some national "talking head" said on national TV that instead of a Johnny Manziel half game suspension, Clowney had a suspension for every other play for an unspecified amount of time.

Written on Nuk and Sammy together again? Not likely, but a possiblilty according to Mayock:

in response to radtiger:

I agree with Sammy going first but Tajh in second round is a joke.Tajh at his best was an average QB and thats up against college players.....NO WAY is he fit to compete on the next level. Clowney proved his worthiness today so enough of trying to put him down to make the Tigers look better. He has "put up" so people need to "shut up".....Our opinion is just that....an opinion.....The NFL Owners and Coaches see him for who he really is without the biased opinions coming from his rivalry fans with no facts to back up the nonsense.

two words about Clowney......Albert Haynsworth.

Written on Boyd: 'I don't think there's anyone out here better':

Written on No. 1 2015 offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt will announce college choice on Wednesday:

.and BTW, we have a great Defense and great skill position players on the Offense. Why not us for an O-Line????

in response to 33dtb
I was speaking of all teams, but to address your babble. Do you actually think Clemson could have beaten FSU with a better O Line? I guess maybe they would have if they scored 60. In that light maybe the O line could have given us time to put up 77 on UWV two years ago. Come on dude. Check the TEAMS that compete for championships, they have good defenses. That was my point.

As I said, "and a marginal O-Line that has the whole backfield in a desperate HURRY".

We gave the games to USC and FSU with turnovers.
Maybe we would have lost anyway, but don't give the games away with a "nervous Nelly QB" and turnovers.

Written on No. 1 2015 offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt will announce college choice on Wednesday:

in response to BigBud52:

I agree tigerrob. It is Defense that wins championships. Just ask the Denver Broncos. Back to back 11 win seasons makes me think the "O"line isn't that bad.

what championship ?

With all the great NFL-grade running backs we've had for the last many years, why haven't they gotten more yards ???????

Charlie Whitehurst had 2 seconds or less to throw a pass.

When will top RB recruits start to wonder ?????

Written on No. 1 2015 offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt will announce college choice on Wednesday:

in response to TheTruth46:

Kimosammy...there is generally a reason for turnovers..that would be good defense. Good to see you again. Enough said.

and a marginal O-Line that has the whole backfield in a desperate HURRY

Written on Five-star, top-rated 2015 OT Mitch Hyatt is a Tiger:

......"and is the highest-rated offensive line recruit of the Dabo Swinney era."........

Maybe we'll start to see what a difference an O-Line can make.
Remember Power Line '89 ?????

Written on No. 1 2015 offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt will announce college choice on Wednesday:

at least we're trying for O-Line finally??

Written on Boys being boys: Spurrier and Swinney are at it again:

in response to TheTruth46:

I am always amazed how you like to point out the past, call USC and Spurrier names, use caps in your posts, and much more. The simple fact remains Tonto, whether you like it or not, USC and Spurrier own CU and Dabo..period. So continue to drink the koolaide, conduct your history classes, call people names, and next November you will find yourself with a 6 game losing streak. Put your big boy pants on Tonto,with no excuses or name calling, and admit what is happening now...not the past. Thank you.

Your "four(4) fingers and thumb" don't count as "history" ??? ...or is that just as far back as you can count ??

Be nervous, 'cause y'all will be a while finding another HC with the stature and lack of need of a job that can stand off the lawyer politics that has dogged SC football for over a century.
took Spurrier what, 6 or 8 years to get y'all over .500 lifetime ??????....and He's really starting to lose his edge.....psst, He's old !

Written on Orange delight: team effort beats OSU 40-35:

in response to gamecockg:

Nate you don't know a dxxx thing about GAMECOCK football. We will be good next year 10 or 11 wins plus bowl win. Clemson will not be as good(boyd,watkins,bryant,mcdowell) gone about 80 percent of offence.

Clemson (and the rest of the world) spell that "offense", with an "s".

Written on Orange delight: team effort beats OSU 40-35:

in response to TheTruth46:

Just a trollin' away...and got 3 big 'uns. Tonto...just keep on adreamin'...you'll wake up in late November, 2014, after another behind the woodshed whuppin.' The old ball sack just keeps kickin' your puddytats all over the yard, and owns Blabbo Weenee. To my old friend Scary Harry snipe, try something a lil more original. Mark my words Tonto...another one comin' next year by the roosters and the injuns. The only feces you will see will be in a kitty litterbox, behind that woodshed. You might wanna go find your friend with the mask and the white horse...you're gonna need him.

Written on Morris: Tigers' OC already missing Tajh Boyd:

Not sure QB position will suffer that much from graduation.
If the "next Level" is consistency, then we have a good shot at improving.
Our history of occasionally having "more fumbles than TDs" can be left behind.

The system Morris is running is VERY QB friendly and we have candidates in the wings that can "keep their big boy pants on" and just "drive the bus" and not try to give the game away.
Imagine what Whitehurst could have done !!

Written on Orange delight: team effort beats OSU 40-35:

1. Did the referees come from a junior league headquartered in Ohio ??

2. How could Shuey have been reasonably expected to avoid "hammering Braxton into the ground" ??? ...and why hear about it 16 times? ....no comment about all the times our QB "got laid out" ??

3. Is "delay of game due to sideline interference" some high school rule in Ohio ???? ....and the escalating penalties?

4. Were the announcers Ohio St alum or what?

Written on Inside Clemson football: Orange Bowl underdog role forecasts mixed results:

I believe it was Disraeli who said there were "lies, d_ _n lies, and statistics".

Written on Orange Bowl shootout? Not if Clemson has a say:

...."Against ranked opponents, that number grows to 39 a game.".........

As long as the offense gets more TDs than fumbles, and gets the Defense off the field every once in a while.

and PLEASE don't curl up on the ground like whipped dogs and give up on national TV again.

Written on Big Finish: Tajh Boyd's ready to leave a lasting memory:

Quite the legacy already, between WV and LSU and never beating USC

Written on Orange Bowl redemption: Corey Crawford says 'our fans deserve that':

just have some pride and don't give up..

so embarrassing on national TV...

Written on Clemson's 1978 clash with Ohio State proved to be a pivot-point for both programs:

back then we had an O-Line and a tough team.

everyone knew that win, lose or draw, playing Clemson was going to wear them out and it was going to hurt.....everyone dreaded playing Clemson.

Written on Tigers hoping to extend one of most successful 3-year runs in program history:

statistics are for losers.
remember when the gamecocks had a guy dedicated to timing and announcing the hang-time of punts??

we beat one (1) good team a year and lose 5 in a row to our sorry rival and start enumerating statistics ad infinitium.

Written on Just a matter of time before coaching carousel takes Palmetto State spin:

in response to TheTruth46:

I'm not sure about all the lawyers being football coaches and such. However, I do know this, Spurrier is 6-3, including 5 in a row, against "The Puddytats," and I probably don't need to tell you his record against Blabbo Weenee. I understand why CU would like to see him retire.

".and it took him, what, 6 or 10 seasons to get them above .500.....??"

lifetime.....history of the program....

Written on Just a matter of time before coaching carousel takes Palmetto State spin:

Someone once observed that Columbia has the state capital, USC, and half the lawyers in the state....
and every lawyer down there thinks he's a football coach.

Spurrier was their first coach to have the stature and lack of NEED of a job to rise above the politics.......and it took him, what, 6 or 10 seasons to get them above .500.....??
