It’s my understanding that Todd Gurley II is not 1 of the 4 best performances of the Opening Day.
What’s that shit ?
All he did was score 5 Touchdowns, 4 he scored himself and 1 he twice pushed Hutson Mason over the Goal Line after Hutson was stopped.
Todd Gurley II officially had 17 touches. Both Coaches played keep-away from Todd Gurley II. He had 15 rushes for 198 yards and 3 Touchdowns, one catch, and another 100-yard kick-off return for another Touchdown and his famous shoving of Hutson Mason for his only score of the day. He played cheerleader on the sidelines for our awesome defense, although truth be told Clemson is not a very good offense and they have few players they deem capable of playing. What’s that all about ? It was plain for all to see in the sweltering heat that Gainesville’s Deshaun Watson was the best quarterback, a beast, this day on our beautiful campus. On an aside it sure is great that Mike Adam$ is no longer messing with us.
I do not understand why we throw the ball. Hutson Mason threw one long pass, and it was 7 yards wide of the target thrown for all he was worth.
On the day, Hutson Mason did well. He fumbled once, but collected it himself, was sacked once which is a huge improvement around these parts for us recently, and completed 70 % of his passes a total of 18 completions for 131 yards. Anyone else at QB would have completed something deep, but hey Hutson Mason did what he needed to do.
And, what was that ?
Confuse all us at the game that we would not give Todd Gurley II the ball, like it he a decoy, and then after halftime, just have a Parade for Todd Gurley II.
And, what a second half it was. Nick Chubb was the crowd favorite. He’s destined.
Keith Marshall recovered a fumble, ok they wiped that out, but other than that we continued to use him off-tackle while many others were brought in to go wide.
Listening to the after game shows in the traffic and rain was a lot of fun going home. All these heroes. Sony Michel ripped off key plays again and again, and is quite the tandem for Nick Chubb after this season when Todd Gurley II takes his Heisman to the NFL.
Quayvon Hicks did very well all day. Isaiah McKenzie lite up the crowd too. We loved it !
328 yards on just 41 carries. Only 41 because the whole 1st half we threw 4-yard passes and set-up for the dramatics late in the game when we quit that shit and ran instead.
I don’t know how much better the guys could’ve played. Honestly, it reminded all of us of 2007 Hawai’i BCS Bowl Win.
We feel, of course, that we won the game for the team with our cheering. We do that so well ! Every 3rd Down, we were all over Clemson from the stands. We made them waste time-outs and we discombobulated them. Some of our Best Players obviously were keyed into us. We feel we made a difference !
I know we did.
Michael Bennett, Jay Rome, Chris Conley, Jeb Blazevich and Kenneth Towns got in on the on-field celebration receiving – I just wish we could’ve stretch the field more on the dink-downs.
Seems that is what we were looking for, dink downs.
Our kick-off returns were awesome, our punt returns too – way to go Reggie Davis !
And, how about little Aaron Davis earning a Scholarship with his Interception when he jumped the route right in front of us. I yelled he’s jumped the route, and right then, he had it !
Brendan Douglas got in the act, too.
We emptied the bench.
We wore them down with the run. Why we didn’t start that way, was that we were paid good money to play the Keep-Away Game with the Clemson Coaches the whole 1st Half from Todd Gurley II.
I do not know when I saw freshmen just really stand out like tonight. I mean we were so proud of you’ens !
I hope that you could hear our Love of You when you came in, and we all stood up and screamed !
Our Kick-Offs were weak; they always are. When they kicked-off the ball went deep, except the one about 5 yards in the end zone Todd Gurley II took to the house.
3rd Down Conversions was key to the game and that’s why all of us felt we affected the outcome, because in the 2nd Half, we shut Clemson down while earlier in the game they were making those and we were just passing 4 yard tosses and keeping Clemson in the game.
I said 16 points, and never expected such a great showing from so many in the game.
Tim Kimbrough is the Man ! I have been watching him closely, and I really think he’s All-SEC in my book.
Quincy Mauger # 20, did you see that guy all day ? Man, he had one whale of game !
And, how about Sony Michel on Special Teams ? God Almighty, that man can get it on ! I am so torn who is my favorite of the 2, Nick Chubb or Sony Michel. Sony/Nick Nick/Sony – I am so proud to have them both on our team ! This is going to be so fun !
This Day – with all of this – this was the Todd Gurley II Show.
Clemson had no answer. They have no running game and are playing the wrong quarterback, as all of us in the stands were so glad they stuck with Ohio’s Cole Stoudt instead. He’s no match for the beast Deshaun Watson.
Well, we have 2 weeks now and then Columbia to play the Gamecocks. We’re ready; I presume they will be. I would feel a lot better about that, had we instead of having Nick Chubb’s TD called back on motion that we had played Brice Ramsey and let him throw some.
It was going to be 52-21 before they took that score off our scoreboard. Why in the Hell did we not play Brice Ramsey 1 series there at the end ?
What’s that all about ?
We watch team after team get several QB on the field, and we never do. I don’t think we’re doing that right, not bringing in Brice Ramsey twice their damn score and then some.
What kind of a lead do we have to have to USE some of the Top Quarterbacks in the nation we recruit every year, Mark Richt ?
Our OL seemed to be great for what I could see of it.
This was just a complete game. As complete a game as I can recall. I said pregame Clemson would be handed its hat and drop from the polls, and we just ripped their heads off.
No, that was our guy who lost his helmet – and, kept going. I gave Nick a standing Ovation for that 1st Down try by him – I mean what a damn beast Nick Chubb is.
Clemson gets the top guys in this state more rarely than we go to South Carolina and steal their top players, while we rack-up in-state here, too.
South Carolina !
South Carolina !
South Carolina !
Are we going to stick to these 4-yard dinks every 1st Half and then unleash the kids to run roughshod over, around, and through them the 2nd Half every game ?
Sure makes it exciting. I’ll give the coaching staff credit for that.
We have so many great players.
Love to see them play.
This game was between fewer top players and a host of top players. This game had to be the way this game came down.
No don’t give me this crap that several hundred yards rushing on only 15 carries for 3 rushing Touchdowns, another 100-yard taken to the house Kick-Off Return and Shoving Hutson Mason twice over the goal line for his only score on the day is not Heisman Moment # 1.
You guys are full of shit to not include Todd Gurley II’s efforts as Best of Opening Day !
Work on our Special Teams’ Kick-offs or get someone in there who can send it out of the back of the end zone. Bring in back-up QB and have him throw the ball 50 yards on target. Stretch the field like that. And, don’t play keep-away like you’re being paid by the Clemson coach to use his strategy of keep-away the whole entire 1st Half from Todd Gurley II.
That’s a short list.
And, this game is in the books as our most complete ballgame in many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many years.
South Carolina, here we come !
