Well ok then.  4th+ string RB just breaks off for 57yds and a TD.

That catch was insane - great focus. I’m not worried about Lawrence at all. He’s been casual with a throw away or two that he can correct easily and has missed a couple of reads. I do think he has underthrown some balls to go for the jump ball when the receiver was behind the db, but no big problem.

DOMINATION

This defense is a completely different style but still suffocating.

The defense is interesting. Instead of the pressure from the linemen, they’re playing with 3 linemen and sending pressure from all angles from the dbs and lbs. It has a lot of risk, but they’re keeping pressure on.

Refs really trying to be horrid this game.  They can’t decide what is PI and what isn’t.  They aren’t calling holding on the Syracuse line.  They call a facemask on Higgins when he stiff arms, and they won’t call blatant roughing the passer where Syracuse is deliberately trying to knock our guy out of the game.  So bad.


The refs called a weird game and it was almost always against Clemson last night.

People are being a little too hard on Lawrence IMO.  Deshaun Watson threw 17 Int’s in his last year and many thought he should have won the Heisman.  TL’s never lost a game.

DC’s study film and make adjustments.  Lawrence needs some games where he has to work.  It’s good for him

I think playcalling and dropped balls kind of hindered him tonight.  He had a few bad ones don’t get me wrong, but the playcalling and dropped balls were bad.

The dropped balls were particularly bad in this game.  We all know that our coaches don’t mind going with super vanilla play calling until they need to surprise somebody (playoffs).  Unfortunately this makes it easier for regular season defenses as they have fewer plays to account for.  We’ve run FAR too many hitch routes and zero hitch and Go routes.  Eventually DB’s will jump those if you don’t make them respect the Go route.  IMO we should need more deep routes to take advantage of our athletic advantage.  We also need to stop running post routes so close to the boundary, we’ve had too many out of bounds throws.

The 3 man front with a variety of blitz packages has confused the hell out of OL’s so far.  It still feels weird to me that we don’t have pressure from just 4 DL but it’s working.  They only had like 187 yards last night.
