The Palmetto Bowl, the state championship, a possible nine win season, a New Year’s Day bowl spot in Florida. All of that, and more, await USC next week when Clemson comes to Williams-Brice Stadium. But Tuesday, all the talk was about Wofford, defending the triple option and getting to win number eight. As far as Will Muschamp and company are concerned, Clemson can wait until Saturday night.
Some key comments from Muschamp’s press conference:
Wofford will be as well coached team as they will face at South Carolina.
Jamyest Williams has a shoulder injury, did not practice today, will know later in the week if he will be able to play in the game.
They have prepared in camp for facing the triple option offense Wofford will run.
He asked Hayden Hurst to go thru the Senior Day festivities Saturday.
Freshman linebacker Sherrod Greene faced the option 6 times in high school last season and was a lot quicker on the reads in practice today than others. Not as my high schools run the option anymore.
He’s seen nothing that leads him to believe defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw won’t continue to work and develop. He’s done everything he’s been asked to do.
Sees cut blocks as a safety issue for players, that’s his position. If they were truly concerned about player safety, he said, they would eliminate the cut block.
