Unimpressed Thaddeus Moss offers candid assessment of Clemson's defense
LSU TE Thaddeus Moss, son of NFL legend Randy Moss, is never shy when it comes to sharing his opinion on upcoming opponents.
He had some candid comments about Oklahoma’s defense after the Peach Bowl, and ahead of Monday’s title game against Clemson, he was at it again.
At Saturday’s media day, Moss offered his thoughts on Clemson’s defense, saying the Tigers don’t really have many players who stand out (via 247Sports):
“They play hard, I guess,” Moss said. “They don’t have really anybody on film that stands out like that…maybe one player, maybe two players that really catch your eye on film. They just play hard and have a good scheme.”
It’s important to note that Moss’s comments are more about his confidence in LSU’s offense and not a huge dig at Clemson’s defense. In fact, he did have some praise for the job DC Brent Venables has done:
“We have prepared for everything. Stuff they haven’t done before. Different personnel. Different fronts. Exotic blitzes. Stuff we think they are going to do. But ultimately we don’t know until Monday,” Moss said. “Maybe get out of their tendencies. Anytime this year we have prepared for teams during the week, they always came out and did opposite of what they’ve done all season. We’ll have adjustments for whatever happens.”
Will LSU continue to score at a high rate against Clemson? We’ll see on Monday night in New Orleans.
