I agree; we will play better, & look better. They will play with pride, & hopefully that will translate to a W. I know we all want Ws, but a few of you on here have said, that when we lose, it's not THAT we lost, but HOW we lost. Can always criticize the coaching, but when the players are playing their hearts out, regardless of the score, you have to give them credit.
Clemson is WAY too fast for our defense. I bet they run no huddle, shotgun offense to run the score up quickly. They want to avenge last years loss in the same way they lost to WV in the bowl.
They have to stop us on O too. Something they havent done a lot of this season either...
This team has to begin to believe in itself. The players have got to step up. The coaches don't play the game. I sure hope our players have the strength to suck it up and go out and kick some butt on Saturday. They have to execute on every play. If someone goes down, they have to pick up the guy who takes his place.
They have to make blocks, tackle and hang on to the ball. They have to avoid stupid penalties and mental penalties (offsides, motion, etc.). Pass interference is OK if they are stopping six.
It is that easy. The team that executes its game plan and plays without penalties wins.
MTSU did that to us last weekend and that is why they won. They did not have better players.
CPJ made a good point at his presser yesterday. "these players are gonna bounce back faster than the fans". I plan to be surprised come saturday. Let them blow us off as nothing... we'll walk away with the V
