It appeared that clemsux front four was dominating us, but it was scheme not players that didn't allow Davis to run inside. JMHO
They stunted inside on every play and stuffed our RB's. That is why the QB run was so successful for us in the 2nd half, the QB can read the stunt and simply run away from it.
