    Maybe I'm just fooling myself but going back and looking at the box scores from the last two years vs FSU...it was pretty much all Cook.

    Last year Francois was 17-35 with 286 yards passing with 1 TD/1 INT. He also had 7 rushes for -47 yards. In last year's game Cook had 19 of their 28 rushes for 169 yards and 4 of their 5 TDs.. After Cook they had -6 yards total as a team rushing...Stevenson had 2 carries for 41 yards and Francois had 7 for -47 yards...most of which I guess came on the final plays of the game.

    In 2015 Cook had 21 rushes for 194 yards and 1 TD...the rest of their offense had 3 yards rushing. I know Maguire was playing QB but they only threw for 185 yards in that game with 0 TDs.

    What I'm saying is in the last two years against us, Cook scored 5 of their 6 TDs. Jimbo is going to have to show they're more than Cook against a loaded defense playing at home in Nov. As of now I like Clemson home in Nov with our DL vs their OL/Francois.

    Yeah I thought about that. It will definitely be an interesting transition for both teams as each try to find the go-to guys offensively. Francois is excellent, I just like the DL/OL matchup for us home in Nov. We've lost one time at home vs FSU since 2001. I know that's irrelevant really given where both programs are now. Going 6-1 vs FSU at home in the last seven meetings is still impressive.

    They have the Brad Scott OL coach problem we had.

    Thanks for the insight.

    I'll add I was brunch drunk when I posted that. He probably won't become the 4th ever freshman AA but I do think he's college ready like Sammy was and he'll be really good.

    I could see Elliot moving on pretty soon. He's African American and the OC of a national champion. You have to think he would interview well and impress.

    I'm surprised he hasn't gotten more buzz to this point.

    He's still relatively new to the oc thing and doesn't have any highlights that don't include the best qb to ever play at Clemson. He'll need a few years to be a reach for head coach, and he's not leaving for another OC. I'll be surprised if he leaves.

    It has to do with the tragedy he has had to deal with in his life, and his ability to be a success through perseverance and hard work. Put that together with the fact that he is an incredibly smart guy and he already relates well and communicates well with people which is somewhat uncommon for an engineer and you have a potential dynamo future HC as a recruiter. He has a lot of Dabo recruiting skills and background.

    I would have no problem if Elliott were to become our HC one day in the future after Dabo retires. He or Venables would be great HCs here as perfect fits.

    I just can't get on board with Venables as our head coach for some reason. The guy has a screw loose. I mean that in a good way. He just doesn't seem like the kind of guy to handle all the responsibilities a head coach has. He's more of a focus one thing and make it amazing. Its why I have always thought Chad Morris would make a better head coach even though I think Venables was the better coordinator.
