    Right and yet still nearly 50 plays run in that first half. The damage was done by that point.

    I agree he's attempting to motivate and get folks on the same page going into this season. And I agree that includes everyone, coaches included.

    One player for Clemson killed us, and it wasn't DW. If we could have covered Hunter Renfroe in either game, we win by 3 TDs...

    Or if someone would have blocked him on RA's fumble return, it would have been "game over" -- his tackle on Anderson saved the game for Clemson.

    This is where my Eddie Jackson "What if" comes in. If Eddie was healthy then Minkah would have been covering Renfrow instead of Brown. I know Renfrow had some success vs Minkah in the 1st game but I think its fair to expect that Minkah would have done better this time around.

    And you could tell Dabo knew it when he was interviewed at the half. Amazingly he knew EXACTLY how many plays they had run. It was like body blows in the early rounds of a fight to set up the knock out punch in the later rounds.

    It is very clear that CNS knew the precise reason we lost the game was a failure of the offense in the second half to make first downs. Forget scoring. If we have one or two 8-10 play drives that ended in punts (instead of 3 and outs) we win #17.

    Mr. Daball, here's your problem to fix.
