Listen: Clemson, Trevor, David Pollack discussed on Championship Drive
"Hey maybe maybe I'm GonNa get a little single or a double here. It felt like every single play. He wanted to say. Oh Joe can do this. I can do that. What was your takeaway from what you sell from Trevor and try to press a little too too much? My my my take was that when a quarterback plays when when Trevor Lawrence plays the way he did in last year's national championship. We're all GonNa Marvel the job that he did as a true freshman and the reality. Is that Justin. Ross did a really good job of making plays Justin Justin Ross did really good job of getting separation making plays after the catch and yet we always want to go back to the to the quarterback. This is true for any when we talk about the packers. We marvel vocal about Aaron Rodgers or the saints is true breeze but as a quarterback. You'RE GONNA get way too much credit when things go well and everyone's going to point the finger at you when things don't go well and most guys get that right. But if you really studied the film and Watch Trevor Lawrence. Yeah I think he started to get comfortable and he started the press a bit things started to try to make some in place but I think there are two things that I saw happening number one. I thought Daveramsey had a nice plan that even though he wasn't getting necessarily two. Trevor Trump was moving moving his feet. He was constantly aware especially to his blindside. Caleb on chase on was getting there. He was winning against Jackson Carmen. And he he was touching his shoulder or he was flashing around him. And that blindside. I think after two quarters in three quarters of that between the score and and feeling that pressure and the reality is honestly Justin. Ross T. Higgins. They were not winning the receivers from Clemson and the Ohio State Game Him and the Lsu game against teams that finally are willing to press them. Play man you're not gonna see that in the other than maybe Florida state now. They they had to face two teams. That were willing to say we got equal or better talent than you. We're GONNA come right up these big long receivers. We're going to pop right in the chest and try to disrupt the timing into to the credit of Ohio state that if it weren't for trevor running they would've lost that game and then a credit of Lsu. They one on the outside they shut down. The CLEMSON isn't receivers. And I think Clemson Mrs One hundred Renfro and our Scott like a guy that T- that kind of receiver that can attack and work on that slot slot against a nickel and they didn't have that much. I mean I I love Maurie Rodgers but I think he's not he's not back healthy. It looks a little heavier. I Ezekiel gets the. He'll get a lot leaner he'll take that brace off he'll be the guy that you need there in the middle next year but man all you have. Is these big long receivers. It's Cedar of Vertical Pass. Downfield are nothing you know and against good corners. David they they kinda shut that down and I think it's easy to say what was wrong with trevor over to me. It was what was wrong with the receivers not getting separation. Yeah I have. We talked a lot leading up to the game and I thought one of the things that Clemson's really missing missing is just over the middle attack the ability to attack the middle. They don't have anybody that can attack the middle of the field and you could tell it was it was a big deal and and I wondered how they would. How do they do it in the Ohio state ten? They did a good job. McQueen by the way makes a play on a screen. Pass that outside all the way on the sidelines. That probably it goes for a touchdown of if he doesn't get there but the speed of Lsu you could tell by the way. Stanley took away half the field. I mean my God oh freshman number even try just any now that sides down over there. Let's keep going the one over here on anywhere else can go somewhere else and I taught honestly watching tape or Brow Kirk. I thought eighty-eight I thought Galloway he didn't play a ton this year obviously for for Clemson but they need that tight end h back to that can attack the middle and they did it. I drive and it was a huge game. How long did he got like forty yards on that first? Big Point Twenty fifty yards on that I put I agree. They didn't have an answer over the middle of the field and an traversed Trevor's insane arm strength in the dude can throw it anywhere and you've seen his ability. You know. Next year I think the next progression for him to is more touch. You know more more touch over the middle of the field more layering the football and I I think they'll give him more routes kirk everything they run that offense is high degree difficulty. Throw and I mean there's just there's not a lot of Gimme and Joe on twin eighteen to twenty yard outside third and eight thirty nine and I and I think that's that's tough. I I do think this go ahead. David Finish up. Because I WANNA last thing I was just gonNa say Joe Boroughs throwing a million slants and a million easy throws that. Are there bunnies. That should be caught in that. Move the sticks and you get another crack to go to go down field. I think they could do a little better job of more. RPO Games in more easy plays more easy completion. The more pop passes when you do have a guy like. At and they can run the football and trevor overlords ability to run the football. Now you can really kill the middle of the field and then I take my shots. Deep on the outside of the field and they lose higgins. WHO's coming out early? Ross's Ross's back the they have those two young freshmen that are really talented Ten into that that have similar BILBO. Both the guys are kind of Long Galloway. Oh have a year to get ready in the off season. We saw glimpses of what he could do in that game. and then Amaury Rogers Gers. I think it'll be a big key in developing is David talked about between Galloway and Rogers and it goes to coming on. We'll be as important as anything for Trevor Lawrence you lose. I'm assuming come out is. He hasn't decided yet. That's that's the big. That's the big one. I'm a crippling. Is it fair to say. Ah The deadline for that. Is it next twenty okay. My assumption is he's gone and if and if he is the way they recruit they're always going to the players. Li Lin j Dickson is a very talented player. He's just not net end espn is is the key to their whole offense. He's whether no he's catching the ball to the backfield running the football yards after contact guy can do so much so if he decides to come out that that's not like oh no problem just bringing the next one. And that's that's a bit of a setback there that spot with the way the CLEMSON's restocking reloading. We know they'll be back and so so. Let's say four senior offensive lineman offense of linemen left tackle Jackson Carmen. And if you follow recruiting. They're defensive class their defensive line class they just brought in is going to be stupid so Davos targeted next year by the time that rolls around to the playoffs. Because they've they've already had you know a good solid thirteen fourteen by weeks. And they're going to be you know scrimmage that a couple of scrimmages and they'll be ready to rock and roll and ready to reload and and it really if you look at their defense. Every one of those. I think Thomas Savior Thomas going to be better next year. I thought he got heavy. I think he'll he'll tail. Drop some weight here. David you can relate to one point your career your lighter than you thought maybe tell us about how you went from being light making a lot of plays for whatever reason you wanted to get bigger than you went back down to being lighter. I think he's going through that a little bit himself. I think he wants to get down and wait to be a little bit more explosive off the the edge they have Rudolph back there foster back. Tyler Davis to freshman Jordan Williams fifty nine so all those guys return along with. Is You just said that new wave players coming in. They lose Chad Smith. They lose Isaiah Simmons. Cave on wall is Tanner Muse. But everybody else is back. I I'm guessing is. Aj Terrell announced anything with what he's doing an ounce he has neither the other way. It's Simmons has an either GonNa do it together. I did a couple years ago. Yeah Yeah they pay all stayed and came back and then spent Bama. Yeah I mean they they all have till the twenty two sides so they got four days in between and you you mentioned the schedule for them of course. ACC But circle November seven. Th You guys they may be making a trip. You know to to Notre Dame because Clemson Jason taken on Notre Dame that that would be a fantastic match. We'll see how that plays out in November summit of the year after that Clemson starts really out of conference scheduling is going to be awesome for them. I mean they're gonNA they're gonNA start amping it up big time and we've seen them in the past take on Auburn and we've seen them take on am and they got Georgia in the future. They're they're doing their best to amp up their schedule as well. I'm looking at the twenty twenty one. They've got South Carolina State Wyoming in Yukon. And we'll see if they could add some more later on before the vote we go. This has been great. You guys breaking down the game. Appreciate that I just one thing I wanNA bring up here because he has said anything to you or me Herbie but somebody somebody I know was eating at a fast food restaurant recently.
