"I love this place.....I've got a spot already picked out where I want 'em to put me when I die - up there on that ole hill near the stadium. I want to be there so I can hear all them people cheering my Tigers on Saturdays…then I won't have to go Heaven; I'll already be there." -Frank Howard

GameThread: WF @ Clemson

We should win this game by 40, so hopefully we'll get to see the backups get plenty of snaps after the offense shows it finally is starting to put things together. I'm really hoping to see the...

Game Film Review: Clemson @ NC State

Note on my shorthand: IZ/OZ= Inside/Outside Zone; IV=Inverted Veer/power read; Power= Power O; Counters we run are mostly Counter-H's. ZR=Zone read, though a ZR handoff is nothing but IZ so I...

Kellen Jones and Carlos Watkins Injured

Unofficial reports out of Clemson today on two fronts. Backup LB Kellen Jones, who played a decent chunk of snaps against SC State, has possibly torn an ACL in the Thursday night NC State game and...

Gameday Open Thread

Not a great slate on today. But its raining all over the south and there is football on, so its not like you're going to do anything else. UNC vs GT may be a subject of film study all day for me....

Tigers Escape Raleigh 26-14

Far from perfect, not even acceptable really based on the capability of this team's talent, but we'll take the Win. Two years ago we get blown out of this game, and if one call goes the other way...

GameThread: Clemson @ NC State

The only thing that worries us about this game is that we don't have a good record on Thursday night and that NC State is a program that has given us fits at times despite inferior roster talent....

Nothing much going on this week, so use this thread as an open comment post for the day.

Game Film Review: SC State @ Clemson

Not much need to do a full review for a 1-AA team, and the defense played so well that I won't have a play-by-play review of the defensive drives. Only in a few cases will I point out things I see. ...

Good luck with this NCAA. There'll be another Civil War if you try stripping the Bammers of a natty.

Brent asking Eminem about betting lines on the game this weekend? Yeah we can just shut all Television down, it doesnt get more awesome. Eminem is high as hell, Brent is probably only mildly sober, and Herbie's face is priceless.

Tigers Crush SC State 52-13

We knew this game should've been little more than a glorified scrimmage against 1-AA SC State, but I wonder what happened with the offense this week in practice that made them come out completely...

GameThread: SC State @ Clemson

Its a 50+ point spread, which means this is a glorified scrimmage. We just need to make it through with no injuries and improve our execution in all 3 phases. I'm looking for Clemson's OL to...

What Are Expectations for 2013?

We stated after last season ended that the expectations would be higher for this Clemson team. If they truly have taken another step and elevated the program to where it once was, then this season...

Georgia and the 3-4 Defense

The 3-4 defense’s invention is accredited to Bud Wilkinson at Oklahoma back in the 1960s, essentially as a variation on the 5-2 fronts that were most popular at the time. Indeed, the 3-4 fronts...

Thoughts after another week of Practice

We got to talk to some folks who have been attending practices and went to the scrimmage last weekend and along with reading some of the quotes from the staff, we can get a good feel for how things...

Scrimmage Notes

Clemson held their first scrimmage this weekend and we caution that you cannot take much at all from their statistics, since it always seems like everyone averages 6 yards per carry and every QB...

Camp Battles Begin in TigerTown

Preseason camp began yesterday in Clemson and several position battles will end up deciding how far we actually can go in 2013. I'm optimistic about the season as a whole, but my expectations are...

STS Cookin': Smoked Brisket

Beef brisket is probably the toughest thing to smoke and get perfect of anything that is commonly done. I've smoked them quite often, but even I mess them up a little at times. The reason is that...
