No. 21 Clemson playing better defense, winning

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Clemson's defense is grabbing the headlines for the 21st-ranked Tigers - and not for the points it allows in the team's biggest games.

Did Clemson’s 45-21 loss at Georgia surprise you? It shouldn’t have. If you’ve followed the blog or listened to the podcasts, we’ve told you all summer that Clemson lacked playmakers on offense. Would anyone step up? The answer is no. The Wide Receivers had their moments, but couldn’t consistently get open. The running backs were adequate, but hardly exceptional, and Cole...
