The other team isn't that bad ether. They made plays, we made a few mistakes (holding the ball too long, not getting open, and sometimes getting beat while run blocking) but overall it wasn't a bad job considering the competition. We aren't gonna steamroll them. They aren't Toledo.

I thought pass protection was good. Moreover, they blitzed us every other down and we picked up just about every one.

Some good excerpts from his dad:

He made the decision on his own, but I had been pushing for Clemson since he was thirteen.

The biggest story in my mind is what the people in Ohio and the recruiting agencies didn’t know. And that is how strong Jackson’s ties were to South Carolina. I lived down there twice. I moved into North Charleston one month before [Hurricane] Hugo hit and remained for four more years after Hugo hit. My present wife and I moved down there in 2011 and remained until 2016. I actually have two other children, Jackson’s half brother and sister, who were born in Charleston.

When I was there from 2012-2016, Jackson was with me each summer. At one time, he was even enrolled at Baptist Hill and was there for half a year. So he actually had more ties, through me, in South Carolina, then anyone knew.

I think you are misrepresenting the DC's quote. He said, and I'm paraphrasing, that the key to stopping OSU is to obviously limit their very skilled playmakers. The way I read your post, I'd get the impression he said "OSU won't be hard to stop".

As for their OC, he said that OSU's defense is well coached and plays fast because they keep their scheme simple. You may remember that our own coaches say the same.

I like reading stats but I won't let them tell me what my eyes see.

For example, Minnesota has the 15th ranked defense and Alabama has the 17th. Which defense do you think Harbaugh would rather scheme for this offseason?

Jr/Sr Tim Tebow had a better completion percentage than Jr/Sr Troy Smith. Which QB was the better passer?

We also had the #1 defense in 2006-2007....and we know how that ended when we played two talented teams. 

Don't spend too much time reading the numbers. Watch the games and wait for it all to come to a clash in 3 weeks!
