Ho hum, another dominant win in a packed enemy stadium. Clemson is now the first ever team to beat three top 15 teams in September. I liked the game plan to come out and let Bryant hit the deep fades and corner routes against man coverage early; it is clearly his best and most comfortable read/throw. Helps to have WRU at your disposal and it’s remarkable to see 5’10” McCloud continue to win those battles outside. The offense bogged down in the second half but again, I have little issue with turtling when up by 2+ scores in the second half when Brent Venables is roaming your sideline.
The Hokies acknowledge that the loss last December hurt more than most – they drove to the Tigers’ 23 late in the game, but quarterback Jerod Evans was intercepted on a fourth-down play – but they also say there’s no sense looking back. We’re a confident team but we are a team that has to play well and must continue to improve. The Tigers lead the ACC in scoring defense and total defense. Clemson has won 11 consecutive road games. So one wouldn’t think that the Hokies could drive up and down the field all evening.
Clemson was able to rest Trayvon Mullen even though he made it through concussion protocol, which is probably the most wonderful long term takeaway of the entire game (both a testament to the secondary depth/versatility and the staff’s awareness of Mullen’s future health). Given the rampant CTE headlines and Thursday night’s helmet-to-helmet in Green Bay, I’m so glad the staff doesn’t play around with head injuries.
