Tigers Taking on the Twerps

Clemson helmetIt’s halftime of the Clemson/Maryland game. We’re down 7-10. I wanted to give some first half thoughts…

  • Last week we had a problem punching the ball in for a TD. This week our problem is getting into scoring position.
  • We put together a great opening drive that went 80 or so yards and took about 7 minutes. Ended with our only TD. Very nice.
  • On that drive we were pounding the run. It was 2nd and Goal on the 2. I think we should have called a pass.
  • Our DE looks good in the red-zone. But they’ve been burned twice on the long ball.
  • Horrible snap on a punt gave MD great field position but the Tigers stepped it up and only gave up 3.

If we won’t get burned on the long ball and get the O working good drives again, I think we’ll pull this one out.

CU Sporting News has a good preview of this game.

UPDATE: Clemson pulls it out! Whew! Man, I don’t like how we keep winning close games. but we’re winning! 2-0 on the season so far and more importantly, 1-0 in the ACC!

I was glad to see Clemson go downfield on a pass or two. Finally connected and we got a TD out of it. Our running attack is looking good…really good.

Oh man…next week we host Miami. This is going to get good!

UPDATE: Per usual, CU Sporting News has a good recap.

  • Hey Rob,

    I don’t know if you’re on the Good, Clean Funnies list but today’s joke was a football joke and it cracked me up so here you go:

    A guy took his blonde girlfriend to her first football game. They had great seats right behind their team’s bench. After the game, he asked her how she liked the experience.

    “Oh, I really liked it,” she replied,”especially the cute
    guys with all the big muscles; but I just couldn’t understand why they were killing each other over 25 cents.”

    Dumbfounded, her date asked, “What do you mean?”

    “Well, I saw them flip a coin and one team got it and then for the rest of the game, all they kept screaming was:

    ‘Get the quarterback! Get the quarterback!’

    Helloooo? It’s only 25 cents!”

    hahahahahahahha
