Default So sick of this year after year...

Once again I got my hopes up. New offenseive coordinator, new OL coach, New DE coach, major influx of talent....but yet again we are in a horrible place. I could understand if we were playing anyone even DECENT but we have played two teams that have absolutely no business being in a game with us and we have looked pathetic.

The offense looks horrible. We have no running game and will look even more lost against teams with actual talent. The oline could not block my 85yr old grandmother. The defense is carved up by a FCS school.

Please go offer Garry Patterson 5mil a year.

Let's bear in mind tha the OL coach was not hired by the Offensive Coordinator. Is there a chance he is not teaching them the way Morris wants? I have no clue. I only know what I see is really bad.

Clemson has been fighting aginst poor OL play since........forever.
But this version of the OL is hideous !
There are some big issues on defense, but I see those as correctable and experience issues.
I don't know what can be done mid season about an OL that is this bad !
I'm enjoying the fact that we are still 2-0 , and the young uns are learning ! But there is absolutely no excuse for this heavily experienced OL to be so bad !

I don't think it's a technique issue. We are just both mentally and physically soft up front. A. McClaine is just pitiful, he's out of shape and continues to take plays off. He couldn't make it through fall camp because of conditioning and it definitely shows. I remember when he was recruited he said he didn't want to stay in-state and play for 'Bama because the practices were too tough...that my friends speaks volumes. I would love to see some agression out of these boys, but it's been 3 years and nothing and after every game we here more excuses.

Football is , bottom line , physical. Smash mouth knock em down so they don't want to come back for more. You can do finese plays after you get the mind set..If everyone every play wants to knock somebody out you'll have a good mindset.. This has been missing for well over a decade.

lol

It's funny, I started reading the OP and I was wondering what team he was talking about because it's surely not Clemson... Amazing how far we have come since 11.
