1. The coaching staff has handled the quarterback competition masterfully. Neither player was given the job the games were instead used as a further evaluation tool. Trevor Lawrence is the starter – for now. But just as it was before this week – both quarterbacks should play and the battle will continue throughout the year.
  2. Clemson starts slow before pulling away from the opponent in the middle of the game. While its a better problem to have than not playing well late in the game, all sixty minutes count and it is harder than one thinks to get out of an early game slump.
  3. Justyn Ross continues to rise to the occasion – he caught one pass for a 53-yard touchdown Saturday in Atlanta. After playing minimally at Kyle Field, he responded to the coaches’ challenge with a big day against Georgia Southern and continued his hot streak against Georgia Tech. His development and playing time is impressive for a true freshman in a nine-deep wideout corps.
  4. Georgia Tech is lucky the score wasn’t worse – they recovered seven out of eight fumbles. From what I can remember from statistics class, the chances of having that happen is 0.0078 percent – and they still lost by four scores.
  5. There is no reason to panic about Clemson’s ‘slow’ start. Tiger fans were concerned when Georgia was blowing out teams while Clemson was struggling to put the game away. This week – Georgia struggled with Missouri while Clemson put away Georgia Tech with relative ease. There are at least eight more games of Tiger football left, and college football lore is full of September Heisman winners that failed to show up in October and November. The only game worth thinking about is the next game on the schedule – that means a noon date with the Syracuse Orange in Death Valley.
