Lest we forget, Clemson did have nearly 500 yards in the win over Boston College Saturday. And quarterback Tajh Boyd passed for 344 yards. And receiver Adam Humphries had a career high 9 catches. And receiver Sammy Watkins had over 100 receiving yards. And running back Rod McDowell rushed for 91 yards, his most since the Georgia game.
But that’s not what people were talking about after the game. The theme was, what was wrong with the Clemson offense? That’s the burden you carry as an offense when you are averaging over 40 points and 514 yards per game and you put the ball on the ground five times, losing two. And when you have a touchdown pass called back because a receiver was not lined up properly. And when you overthrow a wide open receiver for a sure touchdown.
These are just a few of the bad things the Clemson offense did Saturday. Those are the kind of mistakes that will make it very difficult for the Tigers to beat Florida State this Saturday.
But, lest we forget, the Tigers still walked out of Death Valley with a win, and that’s the ultimate goal.
Clemson is an early 2.5 point underdog against the Seminoles who had this past weekend off.
