From someone who couldn’t care less about either one of these teams, it sure looks like he was trying to injure him. Looks dirty from my vantage point - but far less nasty than what I’m doing to this commode right now.
Freshman looked really sharp on a big-time stage. Very impressed with his performance. Took some licks and got right back up and made plays.
The Gamecocks are horribly outmatched in this game. A solid performance where he shows good decision-making ability against a great defense and executes the game plan with as few mistakes as possible is, I think, the best case scenario (maybe keep it a three score or less game). I think Hilinski’s performance against Mizzou the following week will be a better measuring stick for him.
*likely, not liked.
Glenn, the verb you’re looking for is “seize” not “cease. One does cease control of anything nor does he cease an opportunity. Also, Fisher can thank the SEC officiating crew for gifting him that touchdown in the waning moments to make the score a little more palatable. Were it not for the free 15 yards and the first down on the roughing the passer penalty, it would have liked been a 21 point loss. Call me a skeptic, but I don’t see the Aggies faring any better against LSU or Alabama. TAMU is nowhere near elite, and Saturday’s performance endorses just that. Clemson’s Lawrence still doesn’t look anything like his 2018 self, and there are a lot of former orange and purple from last year’s squad now on NFL rosters, but that didn’t prevent them from whomping the Aggies. TAMU is 9-3 at best this year.
This game is starting to look like a prison-yard beat down. Can we get off the whole “Mond is the best QB in the SEC” kick yet? I’m gonna have deal with my annoying tater family all weekend if they don’t turn things around in the next twenty minutes.
I don’t know, Mond actually looks worse against this defense than Bentley has the previous three years. Much worse.
I sure hope you’re right. The taters are becoming unbearable. Half my tater family will be at the game today. I’d love nothing more than to see them leave heartbroken.
What would Will Muschamp know about finding QB success?
And a strip sack to wind down the clock.
I fail to see how TAMU blanking a 3-9 sunbelt team at home is a “bold” prediction. If this same O-line shows up in Death Valley next week, it’s gonna get Mond hurt.
I reckon I’m guilty of clicking on this, so I shouldn’t complain, but this guy’s mama needs to take away his internet privileges before we’re reading a “How Likely is Your Favorite QB to Break Wind in Class This Week?” story.
Well, there you have it folks. No need to play any ball until January. Let’s pack things up until the playoffs.
SDS, it’s still only week 0. If you hurry, there’s just enough time to re-write all of those ridiculous “Ranking Each QB ——— Will Face” articles. Franks is a clown, and Florida’s offense looked horrible. There are at least 4 conference losses on that schedule.
Florida (noun)- pronounced floor-i-duh, Southeastern state in United States of America, populated mostly with transplanted retirees from New York and New Jersey. Also known as the sunshine state. Popular for its interstates which are always under construction, horrible traffic, and Miami Hurricanes football. Synonyms- overrated, uninspiring, and Miami’s Little brother.
You’re absolutely right. There’s no difference between the defending national champions and a team that hasn’t had a better than .500 in-conference record in years.
Yeah, there’s a lot of SDS love for a dual threat QB who managed to get sacked 27 times in a single season behind a Clemson O-line that was stacked with NFL talent. Mizzou fans, be careful what you wish for. You just might get it. I don’t know a single Clemson fan who was sad to see him go.
As the starting QB at Clemson, Bryant faced four SEC defenses during the ‘17-18 and ‘18-19 seasons. Clemson went 3-1 in those games, and, in those four games, Bryant’s performance was “meh” at best. Against SEC defenses in those four games, he averaged .75 passing touchdowns and .5 rushing touchdowns per game. Those are the numbers. They don’t lie. He’s good to great against bad teams, and there aren’t many of those in the SEC.
Week one cannot get here fast enough so we get a break from reading dumb crap like this.
I’m comparing Mizzou talent to LSU, Texas, and Alabama talent - Apples to bricks (or incomparable). Those are the three teams you referenced who beat UGA. UGA is vastly superior to Mizzou, so in order for a team like Mizzou (or most of the other teams in UGA’s schedule), they’re gonna need to stretch the field to have a chance at an upset, and Kelly Bryant throws a more consistent and prettier interception than Jake Bentley.
If we’re gonna compare apples to bricks, all three of those losses were against good teams. What I think the author is implying is... ...if a time like Mizzou wants a chance at upsetting UGA, they’re gonna need to find a way to stretch the field, and Kelly Bryant is an abysmal passer.
Don’t worry. They’ll still figure out a way to end up 4/4 in conference play. That seems to be their ceiling lately.
As someone who’s watched way more Clemson football in my life than anyone should ever have to, I can safely say that Kelly Bryant is basically a less talented Tajh Boyd who only looks good because of who he’s surrounded by. Going from Clemson talent to Mizzou talent, we’ll get to see the true Bryant for the last 12 games of his career.
They didn’t just lose to South Carolina. They lost to a horrible South Carolina who was starting a QB who’d never played any meaningful snaps in his career and was rated as the number 82 pro style QB in his class. Mizzou made Mike Scarnecchia look like Joe Montana.
Mizzou is 1-7 against Kentucky and South Carolina the last 4 seasons, and with Mizzou losing its best offensive weapon to the NFL last season while consistently recruiting near the bottom of the conference, I don’t expect that trend to change. Kelly Bryant is not the answer the fan base is looking for. His performance against SEC teams during his time at Clemson isn’t all that impressive. Where I live and work, I’m immersed in all-things Clemson, and none of the Clemson faithful were sad to see him go. In fact, most were frustrated to see him start the games he did last season before being benched. Mizzou will not be undefeated by the time they play UGA. They’ll lose 2 out of the three (at least) against WVU, SCar, and KY.
The BCS ranking system was horribly flawed which is why it’s now obsolete. Massey’s current list is also horribly flawed (and pointless - like this article). How else would a 3-star team that hasn’t won more than four conference games in a single season over the last four years, consistently recruited at nearly the rock bottom of their conference, and then watched the best player they’ve fielded in years leave for the NFL end up firmly in the top 20 nationally?
Bryant attracted the attention he did because of where he came from. Despite what you think, he’s not the second coming. After riding the bench behind Watson, he finally earned a starting spot only to get replaced by a true freshman. In the only game he played in that really mattered - 2018 national championship- he was dreadful. 50% completion rate and 2 INTs. No TDs. He’s a good runner but a “meh” passer. You’ll learn that soon enough, though I doubt you’ll admit it. His incredible supporting cast made him look better than he really is. Now he’a gone from arguably the most talented offense in the county to Mizzou. It’s like trading down from driving a Lamborghini to driving a Mustang. Sure, it’ll get you where you want in a hurry, but it ain’t nearly the same thing.
