Re: Acock's Wrap Up: Clemson
Dead on with the out coached comment. McDowell gashed us for most of the game. But instead of going back to the well until we stopped it, Morris chose to try and throw the ball. It is like he is going to win his way no matter if it costs Clemson the game. I think if they continue to nickel and dime us with the run we could very well be having a different conversation right now.
I think a great deal of it is psychological. Spurrier is in their heads just like he was in UGAs heads when he coached at UF. Spurrier has shown he will do whatever it takes to win a game. If he has to run the QB draw every play of the game to win, that's what he will do. Morris just seems to be unwilling to alter his gameplan to suit what a quality defense is giving him.
After the first punt return muff Clemson panicked and started to press, which triggered an avalanche of turnovers that ultimately sealed their fate in this game.
