Grew up near the S&G course over on McCoy Rd. My grandfather was head of Neurology and a surgeon at Riverside Hospital. He knew Woody and would assist the team med wise. Ended up out West in my teens and fell in love with the mountains. Graduated from Park City HS and the University of Utah. I work in technology supporting Gov't accounts. Happily married to a Duck fan and living in Denver with our two sons (who are not Duck fans). GO BUCKS!

Thank you for the insight. I did not realize there are specific signals for each offensive group.

Going back to Clemson's 2016 championship season, their only loss was to Pitt, and NC State played them in a close game that Clemson ended up winning 24-17.  Both those teams huddled when calling plays in their respective games with Clemson that year.  Makes you think.

In the 2016 match-up, DC Venables seemed to know exactly what the OSU offensive staff was calling prior to the play. I do realize that offense was very predictable Ie - Running a jet sweep anytime JT was under center.  That said, there has been talk about Clemson's ability to steal play signals from opposing teams.  Do you think there is any truth to those rumors from fellow ACC coaches, and if true, what can the OSU staff do to mitigate Clemson stealing signals?

Losing Michael Jordan in the 1st quarter really hurt the oline. I'll never forget Knox, who replaced Jordan at OG, getting blown up the rest of the game. Oline depth that year was not good. That game drove me crazy as well because Clemson knew exactly what plays OSU were going to run, especially the jet sweep when Barrett went under center.

Their front 7 aggressiveness pretty much shut down the OSU offense for most of the first half.  I would really like to see Day use that against the Wisky defense and run slants via RPOs. I've never been a big fan of RPOs but the way their front7 was stunting and crashing, it's the perfect play.  That, and a few tunnel (slow) and bubble (quick) screens would gain some big chunk yardage.
