Thursday night means “The Coordinators” on SportsTalk as Chuck Reedy and Ellis Johnson join us to breakdown the USC and Clemson games from the previous week.
Johnson has coached at the high school level, held coordinator positions at both Clemson and USC, and been the head man at the Citadel and Southern Miss. Reedy coached at Clemson during their championship run in 1981, was the head coach at Baylor in the early 90’s, and then turned Goose Creek High into one of the most prominent high school powers in the state of South Carolina.
Coach Johnson, having been the defensive coordinator at Clemson, USC, Alabama, Auburn, and others, will provide his defensive diagnosis for us each week, and Coach Reedy, having OC stops at Clemson, USC, and others, will do the exact same thing from an offensive perspective.
Tonight we had the Coordinators break down USC’s win over Central Florida. Coach Johnson discussed what he believed to be an improved defense, despite the competition. Coach Reedy discussed what he saw from Lorenzo Nunez and what he thinks about the shift from Steve Spurrier as the primary play caller to his assistants and more.
We then turned our attention to the monster showdown at Death Valley featuring the Fighting Irish and Tigers. We discussed everything from torrential downpours to the trenches for both squads trying to best decide who will take one of the weekend’s featured matchups.
