There is plenty of soul searching to do for the now 9-2 Clemson Tigers.
The Tigers have not looked the same since their loss against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in Atalanta and have lost two of their last three games, the newest of which includes the 37-13 whipping by the NC State Wolfpack, who received their first win over the Tigers in almost a decade.
The offense struggled to run the ball, and quarterback Tajh Boyd struggled to get any kind of rhythm in the passing game. The offense committed four turnovers, several of which were deep in their own territory, and consistently gave the Wolfpack a short field to work with.
The defense started off the game with quick stops, but the offense, for one of the first few times this season, failed to produce and get the defense off the field, and as the game wore on, the defense ran out of gas from constantly being on the field. Also, poor tackling continues to be an issue for this ball club.
We shall now look at the disappointing performance of the Tigers, what went wrong and how they can bounce back when they travel to Columbia, S.C. for their in-state battle against the South Carolina Gamecocks.
