Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

Not seeing anything they said that’s incorrect.

UGA likes to pound the ball with multiple RB rotation.

We like to spread it out, throw to the edges, get the other teams D looking outside, then gut you up the middle with our speedy back.

Just two different offensive philosophies.

Clemson is a power-run spread team. That is not finesse. South Carolina's offense is what is called finesse. I'm working on a story that will debunk that thought.

Clemson's offense can be either. That is the beauty of what the Tigers have. They can take what the defense gives them or they can ram it down their throat.

Looks to me like he said “I wouldn’t say they are finesse team”. Their players answered the question well

I cant wait for the games to start....lol. I didnt see anything wrong with what anyone said, however Georgia lost 3 games being "physical." I'll take the titles. UGA isn't winning anything until they become more of a passing team.

Before anybody goes off half-cocked, read the linked article.

T.J. Brunson stopped short of calling Clemson "finesse", but said UGA was the tougher team up front.

Nothing at all unfair about the article. The original poster's title was off.

Fully agree and the media is running with the “gotcha” headline. Sad state of affairs when the undistorted truth is not enough to drive traffic

It is not bad what he said, but he did say Georgia was more physical.

Does it really matter just so we put up more points than the other team?

Didn't a Clemson player say Notre Dame was the most physical team we played last year? It's all part of the same pi$$in match. Love it.

I really don't have objections. To me it's like saying a boxer moves and scores points, but isn't a threat to knock you out. Who cares? The object of the game is to win!

They may be a power-run spread team, but physicality up front can be pretty adequately judged by how well a team performs in short yardage situations when everyone on both sides knows what's coming. And Clemson was not among the best teams in the country at that. Is Clemson a finesse team? Not at all, in fact they're probably the most physical defensive team out there, but from an offensive standpoint physicality isn't really reflected in the results.

Yes, but Clemson has Bama saying "Matte!" in the 4th quarter.
Yes, a Bloodsport reference.
