Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables does’t care if his team is playing the Patriots or a Pee Wee team. His focus on the opponent always is high despite their quality. Ordinarily this would not come in to question the week of the Florida State game, but this is no ordinary Seminole offense. It’s one that’s last in the ACC in scoring and total offense. Venables however, in preparing his team this week, gave no indication Wednesday night that his focus or intensity of preparation has been impacted by the Seminoles’ lack of offensive punch this season.
