    Good for his son trying something on an awful Lions team. Consider it a blessing.

    I have been critical myself. Today was a good day. I wish Tuf would be relegated to Cheer leader and let Hilliard and Browning play.

    Literally can’t complain. Sorry boss. Gotta account for having no opportunity to get acclimated and install.

    I feel like the single high safety defense was built for the playoffs.

    Bend but don’t break, keep everything in front of you, no big plays, play opportunistic and get stops when you can, especially when you can dial up pressure, sometimes with opportunistic blitzes if necessary.

    However, that type of defense is most successful when—first of all you actually don’t give up big plays, which was missing in a big way earlier in the year, most likely due to a lack of reps for a young secondary—and second of all your offense needs to be clicking to make it work. You absolutely cannot be going three and out and giving the ball right back with this style of defense.

    In the regular season when the offense isn’t clicking, or the dline isn’t getting as much pressure, of the high safety is unfocused and letting things get behind them, it can obviously look pretty poor.

    I’m very happy everyone came through when it counted from the trenches on back. Good pressure up front, the linebackers played great, and the secondary at the very least didn’t give up any big plays and made Clemson sustain drives.

    You can really see why this is the preferred defense once we get some elite level lock down corners again.

    I feel bad for Wade, who didn’t get the reps this year to really put things together.

    I hope he can improve.

    I think Coombs got some unfair criticism for the Indiana game, he's still a great coach. And last night showed it. The kids LOVE him! Idk if the single high safety is best for this defense but what choice did he have on such short notice? I think if you give him a proper off season we'll see a damn good defense and especially in the secondary. Only getting to play 6gms with no off season training is much harder on a defense. But our guys definitely have pulled through and have one more obstacle on January 11th

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Coombs is kind of Woody without the old school break them down before you build them up boot camp mentality. He has the intensity and the drive for technical perfection, yet he somehow makes it all positive in a way that the kids absolutely buy into. Yeah, he can bust balls, but I don't think it's in that old school Woody way, which would last all of a nanosecond in today's world.

    it was very interesting they made a point about this last night... no one has driven the field 75+ yards and scored on us without a chunk play of 20 yards or more at some point during the drive... found that fascinating

    buckeyes_rock Great day to be a Buckeye

    What was Clemson's longest play from scrimmage? Seemed like I only remember twice where Trevor tried to go deep. One early where the TE got behind Proctor but the throw was too long, and another where he tested Wade down the sideline but it was incomplete as well. D did the job of keeping everything in front of them for the most part.
