Tuesday scrimmage thoughts

Posted by cuorange on August 18, 2009

Ramblings from readings on Tuesday’s scrimmage:

  1. Rendrick Taylor is hurt.  Stop me if you’ve heard this before.  Rendrick has to be the most star-crossed player in Clemson history.  Year after year, position after position, injury after injury.  Hopefully the pulled hamstring will be better by September 5.
  2. I am going to try out for kicker.  That’s how bad it is.  Last week I was thinking Clemson may play a lot of 10-7 or 13-10 type games this year.  On second thought there may be a few 14-7 or 14-10 games.  I’m fairly confident on extra points.  Not so much on field goals.
  3. Kyle Parker was 3/10 passing.  Before you start clamoring for Willy Korn, Dabo said there were 4 dropped passes, without telling us who the thrower was.  So, maybe he was good enough to be 7-10, who knows.  He did run 29 yards for a touchdown, which I believe is more yardage than Cullen Harper racked up in two years.
  4. Several players will rotate wearing #17 to honor Stanley Hunter who had to give up football last month.  Middle Linebacker Brandon Maye will wear the number in the Middle Tennessee game and Willy Korn (Hunter’s high school teammate) will wear it for the Georgia Tech game.
  5. Jamie Harper had a 56 yard touchdown run to cap a 91 yard rushing day.

No practice on Wednesday, back at it Thursday.
