Trent has yet to fill out a bio.
@Casey: Did I say that? Don't assume. Of course the dogs will put up points. I'm talking about Clemson.
But I guess if want a full game analysis:
LB: toss up
QB: toss up
A pretty freaking even game. It will be high scoring because each teams strengths play into the others weaknesses.
Clemson: Clemson will look to establish the running game early with their big powerful backs. (Mcdowell 5'11, Brooks 6'1, Dye 6'1) However, the run isnt where they are going to get their main production. The tigers will come out firing on all cylinders through the air and like usual will catch the opposing D off guard. (See first half against FSU, first possession against Scar, second possession against LSU). I guarantee they will put up one or two quick scores. The question is how long they will keep it up (They wore down vs FSU and Scar).
Georgia: Probably the opposite for GA. They will attempt to establish the pass but rely on the run behind Gurshall. They will be slower working and take longer to get on the board that Clemson does. They however should keep up steady production throughout the game and despite an early deficit will tighten the game down the stretch.
Clemson: You said Clemson's D is young, that is true, but their young players have experience. Their D line will posses a dangerous pass rush with Beasley (who possesses unreal speed for and end) on one end and a rotation of power (Crawford and Fr. Shaq Lawson) on the other end. The secondary will be very good with Fr. 5-star Alexander and experienced corner Breeland anchoring the CB position. Rising superstar Travis Blanks will be back at Safety with likely a rising freshman. The LB are insanely experienced. Two former five star juniors at Mike and Will with very productive tackling machine Shuey at Sam. They will hold GA's offense in check at first because of depth and fresh hard hitters like Shuey and Blanks. During the game however they will start making mental mistakes because of youth.
GA: The dogs lost a lot on the defensive side of the ball and will have A LOT of inexperienced players filling the gaps. I understand these former backups are full of star potential. I imagine they will struggle more than Clemson's D because of the instant air-raid they're inexperienced selves will face. They should start to settle down later in the game however.
Overall: Clemson will smack GA in the face with quick scores to start the game but will slow down and they're D will have been playing over their heads and begin making mental mistakes. GA's D will come out with their hands full and the offense will not score as fast as Clemson but should wear down the opposing D with a methodical rushing attack and quick strikes through the air from Murray. Look for Georgia to be down by a couple scores at the half but begin to make a comeback in the later part of the game. Both teams have top 10 offenses and it will be a fairly high scoring affair. The deciding factor will be the home-field advantage Clemson has as they will rally in Death Valley, (one of the most difficult stadiums to play at in the country) behind star QB Tajh Boyd and escape a Bulldog comeback in the fourth by the hair on their skin.
FINAL PREDICTION: Clemson: 37 Georgia: 34
Trent, thanks for the advice. I wanted to use Rivals, but we have a partnership with 247 here at Bleacher Report.
Hi, you probably don't know me but I saw what you wrote on John Birch's profile and I just want to say that I believe very much the same way you do on gays. I don't know if your are a born again believer in Christ, but I am, and I just want to say that if you are born again it is refreshing to meet a like minded person and that I encourage you to keep on keeping on for the Lord.
Go look in the mirror before you call someone an idiot. How is someone 10000 miles away going to tell me what he saw on T.V. makes him a know it all? This isn't soccer leave the American football to people who have actually played it.
Clemson played about exactly as I expected. I did not expect Auburn to show up and play so timidly, but that is what happened.
Hey new fan! Thanks so much for fanning me on here—I really appreciate the support <3
uhh...yeah. I think I might have read that as "most unbelievable record" or something of that nature when I first signed up. I'll have to go back and put something else because that doesn't make sense lol. Thanks for pointing that out.
I love debate. I try not to be biased and enjoy a healthy back and forth exchange of words so, right back at you! Thanks for not calling me fat and making fun of my mom. It was a nice change of pace.
Thanks for the support Trent, appreciate it. Cheers
