Default defense wins games..simple as that

And when you boil it down that will decide the game against clemson. clemson can have the win on pregame talk. the defense will win the game..

case in point is oregon. everyone knows oregon has the better offense..but for 4 quarters last night stanford held them in check..if stanford can beat oregon than sc can beat surely beat clemson.

See Stanford and Oregon. High powered offenses seem to lose at the end of the season. All of their tricks are discovered by then.

Default Re: defense wins games..simple as that

I agree, but our defense is really going to have to come to play. Our defensive line causing havoc is a must, but it is not an automatic.

Clemson has not given up a sack in the last two games against Maryland and NC State. Now, yes, I know it is Maryland and NC State, BUT those teams both lead the ACC in sacks at the time they played Clemson. In other words, those two teams are both at the top of the conference in sacks per game.

Again, I know it is the ACC, but you would still think that the teams that rank at the top of the conference in sacks would be able to get at least a sack or two on a QB that throws the ball 40-50 times a game if Clemson's offensive line was that bad.

All I am saying is that, whether we like it or not, Clemson's o-line has done a good job of pass protecting and Boyd has done a good job of moving out of the pocket when needed.

Can we get pressure on Boyd and put him on his back? Absolutely!! But it isn't going to be a given and our defensive line is going to have to play hard to get it.

Our secondary has been suspect when we can't get immediate pressure.

It all comes down to the push up front. We get that, we will slow their offense.

Any comparisons to ACC stats, for any ACC v. ACC game, are meaningless. The ACC is a joke, period. Clemson's marquee win this year turned out to be Ball State, nuff said.

To be devil's advocate here, is Texas A&M's defense better than Bama's? Better defense doesn't always win if the offense is inept.
