Clemson's offense struggling to move forward

Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris' high-speed attack has stalled this fall as he has spent more time penciling in new starters on depth chart then scheming up complex ways to keep the Tigers moving.

Clemson freshman QB Deshaun Watson still the starter once he's healthy

Barring "something unusual," Cole Stoudt is a seat-filler. Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney, often ambiguous about the development of personnel battles, promised injured freshman quarterback Deshaun Watson his job back at his weekly Tuesday press conference, once Watson is healed from a broken right hand suffered Oct. 11 vs. Louisville. Watson is likely to miss the next...

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. The group has given up just 30 points in the past three games for Clemson (5-2, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) and made game-saving stops the last two weeks to beat Louisville and Boston College.

Clemson fan shows up on Louisville bench during game (video)

Wow, the measures some people take to get attention. Somehow, a Clemson fan ended up on the Louisville bench during their game. I don’t believe he was stealing plays but the Tigers did win the game. The man was escorted out by security but it leads me to question where security was when this happened. Perhaps they were caught up watching the (4-2) Tigers beat the (5-2) Cardinals...
