Monday Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris addressed the media before his offense takes the field against their arch-rival, the South Carolina Gamecocks, Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia.
Morris wasted no time intimating what he thought the key to Saturday’s matchup would be. “Basic football” was the term he used to describe blocking, tackling, etc. He also added that he believed his offensive line was up to the task of blocking USC’s front four, something the Tigers had an issue with last season, when the line gave up 4.5 sacks to Jadeveon Clowney alone.
Morris also took the time to address Clowney in general terms and also how he plans on addressing the challenges that Clowney posed last year.
Morris also expressed his pleasure with how well his offense has progressed the past four weeks, especially the quarterback play of Tajh Boyd. Boyd, who’s looking to get his first victory ever against South Carolina this weekend, was something Morris touched on as well.
