A lot of us were on Tony’s bandwagon during the coaching search. It will be interesting how popular he will be if he doesn’t turn this around with his current 5 star QB.
DJ Uiagalelei is next to last in QBR in the ACC, ahead of just Mackenzie Milton at FSU.
There’s regression from Lawrence and then there’s this. Maybe Elliot deserves some blame, too, because Uiagalelei isn’t able to run the plays Lawrence did.
His line and skill players are good enough to avoid this kind of drop off.
And OU and ND have struggled this year. And FSU / Miami is still a head shaker.when you look at Ohio State and Clemson this year, it makes what Saban has done even more impressive (if that's possible). The announcers during the 2 hour halftime Saturday even spoke to this point. Based on what Saban has done, people think the factories simply plug and play. Bama does. But no one else.
Doggone right. Too much sunshine. To go along with two NCs. Oops.Clemson fans are already calling for at least 3 asst coaching changes (all on the offensive side - OC, OL, WR) and TE is one of them. They feel he is by far the worst OC they have had under Dabo.
FWIW, they are also starting to tire of the Dabo sunshine routine.
Even Alabama has taken a noticeable step back from last year. The game against UF shouldn't have been close. If they don't figure out their defensive issues then there is a considerable risk that an A&M or an Auburn knock them off this year.when you look at Ohio State and Clemson this year, it makes what Saban has done even more impressive (if that's possible).

I thought more telling was late in the game when Venablers had collected his defense around him and in order to be herd over the crowd he was shouting his instructions. Instantly Swinney came up from the back shouting his own instructions to the same group. I have never seen him do something like that and maybe it occurred to him that Clemson could easily lose the game. Whatever, he looked like a train wreck when the game was over.I don’t hate Dabo, but he comes across as a massive douch on the sidelines during games at times, he came unglued at the end of the game when the refs called the safety
I am going to repeat what I have said before ....which Tony Elliot? The one with TL and ETN? Or the one who didn't score against Uga and put up 14 against GT with a roster full of blue chippers?I'm a Geoff Collins fan, but I'm still not sold on Patenaude. If Elliot gets fired by Clemson, and is willing to be OC here for less than $1M/year, we need to do everything in our power to make that happen.
