Tech 30 Clemson 27

Posted by cuorange on September 10, 2009

There was a lot not to like about this game as a Clemson fan.  Cory Lambert was abused in the first half.  There were penalties, turnovers and wasted time-outs in the first half.  Bad – no make that horrible – coaching decisions on pooch kicks, fake field goals and bad tackling. 

Then….somewhow, some way Clemson got back in the game (Kyle Parker) and took the lead at one point.  But as has been the case for several years running, the defense couldn’t make a stop on a crucial third down. 

There were also many positives out of this game (halftime adjustments anyone?), but the most important one eluded Clemson – again.

I didn’t expect the Tigers to go undefeated – hell, some of my Clemson buddies have been riding me on my outlook for the season.  I had penciled this one in as a loss in July.  I would have been very happy to have been wrong. 

I’ll delve into my notes more later in the weekend, but suffice it to say there was one more horrific play than there was great play – again.
