It’s going to be interesting to see how Tony Elliot’s absence from this game due to Covid with impact the game.  I’m hoping not a lot.  Streeter’s been in system a while and with CJ Spiller working with the RB’s and of course Dabo I don’t expect much to chance.  Of course Trevor Lawrence has been empowered to change and call some plays so I fee we’re ok on the offensive side.  Losing Venables would be more impactful I would think.

Ohio St holding the crap out of us right now on the line.  So dumb, not even being called.

As per usual this year, defense just looks woefully unprepared currently.

Welp, dumb ass targeting call again.  Skalski is gone.  Might be our killing blow.  Defense better rally to make up for it or else we are in trouble.

Thankfully Fields could be done for the game for Ohio St he is hurting.

They’ll shoot him up.

Even if we win this game, not sure we have any shot against Bama being this beat up.  We did Bama a favor by possibly breaking Field’s ribs.

All of the calls (and no-calls) are going tOSU’s way.  They don’t want Clemson to advance

Well, pretty much over now.  Our defense is really bad.  Corners are not good, LBs are very thin and just have bad angles on everything.  Safeties are lost.  Defense has just been horrid, really kind of all year we’ve seen these issues but tonight just amplified it.  Not ready in the slightest.

Missing Elliott with playcalling hurt now that we look at it.

Just totally outplayed tonight.  Hate the feeling of being embarrassed.

Makes you wonder if Venerables was stealing signs.

Elliot being gone wasn’t the problem. Giving up half a hundred was.

Dabo gave OSU bulletin board material voting OSU 11th. If OSU is 11th then Clemson is 15th.

Clemson faced a team that was more physical with better speed and highly motivated.

Bama will have their hands full if Fields can recover.

Tough game for Clemson. This makes ACC zero for bowl games this season. I don’t really care about stuff like that. Both NCSU and UNC are underdogs in the games left. I stopped watching very early in the 3rd quarter, but it looked like Clemson’s defense was disorganized. Losing the MLB had to be a big loss. Clemson will look different next season, but the DL should be better, and that will fix a lot.

Edited to add punctuation.

Yeah tough game for CU. With the schedule this year it made it hard to judge how good anyone was.. OSU was better than I thought they were. Who knows how next year will pan out with seniors able to come back and all the players transferring.
