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!

Yep...their consistency is for shit. They'll call a ticket tack foul on one end and then someone gets mugged on the other end and no foul is called.

I tend to agree with you.  I really don't think the amount of WR talent is scaring away RB prospects.  Also, if I'm being recruited as an RB, I would prefer going to a program in a colder climate where the ability to run the ball is at a premium when the weather turns bad. Recruiting is cyclical...you have good classes and bad.  People were throwing Coach Stud under the bus when he had a some big misses.  Now the guy can't miss.

I absolutely agree with Ramzy that Gronk rejected OSU based on the lack of TE attempts but that was all about Tressel's offensive philosophy and not the amount of talent in other position groups.

I'm not sold on Clemson's RZ defense.  If JK catches those two passes, where he was wide open, then we are talking 3 out of 4 RZ TDs in the first half.

I think Joe picks them apart Monday.  Clemson's only chance is to get to Burrow via blitzing or the LSU receivers/RBs start dropping TD passes.

I've been hating their fanbase since Tattoogate. They were worse than the TTUN fans with their self righteous BS. Then, when the most evil asshole associated with CFB, rapes young, impoverished boys for over 3 decades, their legendary coach turns a blind eye along with the majority of their fans. I respect the players but I'll never respect their fans. Plus, Franklin is a douchebag. I liked OBrien.

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?
