    We’ll know after a pile or two when gt has a chance to mess with his ankle.

    Before anyone gets too excited, this was the same stuff we heard going in to the Syracuse game. I really hope he's ok.

    I have a feeling that we may have thrown away our whole season over a stretch that went Wake, Syracuse, bye week, GT with the KB injury.

    I think Dabo is flirting with some bad and potentially damaging press coverage that could affect his good guy image. If Bryant is sent out there again with a gimpy ankle (and definitely if he gets hurt again), they may jump on the story and add in Deshaun playing with the ACL tear. A friend who's an orthopedic surgeon was telling me it's widely known in the sports medicine/orthopedic world that Deshaun should never have played that day.

    Also widely known that gt shouldn't treat their field like shit. Or make their players walk a mile across campus to & from practice.

    Understand the skepticism but Fowler watches Thursday practices of the home team. Doubt he says anything if he looked gimpy

    Only one way we're losing tomorrow is if there's an engineering contest too. :cosby:

    I'm good friends with a PT doctor that said the opposite. If it's torn with no other surrounding injuries , you reallybdont even need to repair it, assuming you never want to play sports again.


    Tajh Boyd played his Sr year of high school with a torn acl.

    Maybe there's disagreement - this is just what someone told me, not my knowledge base. He's a sports orthopedic surgeon who works in college sports - says with a torn ACL there's no brace that can adequately stabilize the knee. I trust the guy to treat my kids so I'll take his word for it.

    Weather has people dumping tix all over today. WYFF showed on their FutureCast that rain could be out of area by 5PM yet NWS report shows 90% rain in evening. Not sure. But only expecting quart to half inch rain either way.

    Fwiw and I haven't read this entirely but LW has us winning a 34-20 type of game.

    https://georgiatech.rivals.com/news/behind-enemy-lines-clemson-12

    Regarding KB from LW:

    "While plenty of fans think Swinney is presenting a smoke screen when he says Bryant is fine, my information indicates he's being truthful and that the week off really helped improve his ankle."

    "But at present, I believe his ankle has healed to the point where he can be effective as a runner Saturday night."

    LW is the one that matters, imo. He seems to get off-the-record info

    See I agree. He's pretty much the only person I've been paying attention to regarding KB's health. I don't think he feeds bs and I am sure he has good sources even if the media doesn't have much access to practice. Not to beat the dead horse but Dabo has lost my trust in regards to injury news.

    I don't know and I'm not really trying to knock Dabs but as a fan I just want some sort of truthful idea. I know we don't need to know and just make GT or whoever prepare for everything but in this case I'm dying for good news regarding KB lol.

    Not a knock on him at all, but I’m gonna guess all head coaches arent that truthful to the media about injuries.

    Hey I didn't spend 6 and 1 /2 years at Clemson for the engineering program to be looked down on. Fuck those nerds, it's hard to think after you get punched in the mouth.

    I'm not an idiot, I got my master's too.

    Today, I am an engineering manager and have more USC and GT direct reports than Clemson. :feelsbadman:

    What if the player is wearing an extremely sturdy brace?

    After that game I did some reading of a sports ortho's blog and he said it all depends on the guy, that some can play without an ACL.
