The fact is that he should have NEVER played vs Wofford. We score just as much with DT in that game and give Shaw another week to rest. If he can't go vs Clemson, that game is all but lost.
You need to chill buddy. We've got a good team. As others have stated look at Stanford & Oregon. The O had a 54 PPG avg going into that match up and lost at home; only scored 14!. The SC seniors have a big goal in front of them and I'm betting DJ and crew will get the team fired up!

Did you see any types of food in his hands, Mel? That's what I am buying.


Nope! No food.

Thank you very much. Yeah, I was just trying to share what I saw. My first impression when I saw him was "oh, no". I saw him walk enough to know he was in pain. I've been there before with my left foot/ankle. And he being the competitive athlete that he is, I know he's got to be frustrated.

He's been in a boot and on crutches each time I've seen him on campus for like the last 2 weeks. Sure they were just checking up on his previous injury.

A simple statement about what someone witnessed draws criticism from you? It sounds like you're the type to argue about what shade of blue the sky is. It was just a statement with nothing read into it....you did that on you own

Default Re: I saw Shaw after the game....

I'd be absolutely SHOCKED if Connor is not starting come Saturday night.

Some things we know about Shaw...

-he's a competitor - ask Tajh Boyd last year & Aaron Murray this year if they outplayed Connor Shaw?

-he's tough as nails - see Vandy game & after UAB game hit/coming back the next week against Mizzou

-oh yeah...we win games with him as starting QB (16-3 I believe)

IMO - Shaw is/always will be all-business, and will get himself ready to lead this team going up Memorial Stadium in Pickens County.

btw-MEL has been nothing but positive contributor to Cocky Talk for many years...thanks for the info MEL/pts.

GO COCKS!!!

Well, thank you sir! :) I agree with your comments about Shaw. He is a competitor and he'll most definitely try to play thru his foot pain.

Right... he says "I'm not buying it", but goes on to say he's not saying she's wrong or lying... is "I'm not buying it" not just a way of implying that you don't think the person is providing accurate or truthful information... just an argumentative and douchey choice of words.

As Trav said it doesn't matter who plays QB if the oline plays next week like they did this week the QB will just get mauled. Yesterday was the worst perfoance by the oline all season without a doubt and it's really troubling that they seem to be regressing as the season goes on and they were manhandled constantly by Woffords dline.
Coach Spurrier said a big DE stepped on his hurt foot on his show. She saw that after the game.

Coach Spurrier backed your story on his show. Shaw's foot is sore. He might need a little and Naproxen for comfort. Shaw is a very tough kid. He will be ready. I am sure Dylan will also take practice reps this week.

If Connor struggles early and we end up falling behind a couple of scores early, it wouldn't surprise me to see Coach put Dylan in and let him shoot it out with Boyd.

we need to run the ball well to win this game. A shootout isn't what we want.

I understand the reasoning, but I somewhat disagree. You take what the defense gives you and what Clemson gives you is a horrible secondary. When you can score, you score. For example, if Clemson put all 11 guys in the box and played no pass protection at all (hypothetical), I am sure Spurrier wouldn't say well we aren't going to throw a wide open TD because we would score too fast.

I have thought all season that Shaw gives us the best chance to win, but this is one game that I think DT would do fine if he goes in the game. I think he would do just as well as he did against ECU.

If we get to 40, we win. Clemson isn't going to score 40.

ok I definitely agree that their pass coverage is garbage. We need to be balanced to drain that clock. Limiting their plays makes them frustrated. We've seen this before. But yes, we will have chances to make plays in the passing game.

Saw him @ Lizard's Thicket after the game with his parents and his girlfriend. He was limping, but seemed to be in good spirits. My 14 year old son went crazy, so he went over and got him to autograph his white visor. He was very gracious to give my son his autograph, my son told him thank you and said. "Ya'll take care of clemson!" He replied, "Oh, we'll be ready for that one." He is a competitor and he will do fine!

This is good news. I am speculating, but I would think he would be a little less upbeat if he thought he would be out next week. It was said earlier in this thread, but Shaw LIVES for football. Shaw is the type of guy that I would bet if he had an injury that he thought was going to keep him out of the game, he wouldn't be in a gracious mood. You probably wouldn't want to get near him if that was the case.
