We’ve arrived at the last leg of the College Football Playoff National Championship between the No. 1 LSU Tigers and No. 3 Clemson Tigers. It’s a game that highlights many promising matchups that could make it a work of art.
LSU fans have been perusing what the purple and gold must do to secure its first title since the 2007 season however haven’t glanced through the eyes of an ordinary Clemson fan. We made up for lost time with Clemson Maven for Sports Illustrated distributer Zach Lentz to discover what things look like on the Clemson side as gameday approaches.
We as a whole know the significance of Trevor Lawrence and the heap of weapons he has available to him. In the event that there’s one zone of this offense you’d think about a shortcoming, what might it be and why?
The Tigers have needed tight end creation for the last three seasons since the takeoff of previous Tiger Jordan Leggett, who got 16 touchdown goes in 2016. From that point forward the Tigers have just 6 touchdowns to tight closures.
The Tigers do get Braden Galloway back, in the wake of serving a one-year suspension for a prohibited substance last season, yet how much will he help in his first game back is yet to be resolved.
LSU has confronted a lot of intense safeguards this year (Auburn and Georgia) just to give some examples. What is it about Clemson’s barrier that may have the option to accomplish something none other could make sense of— – how to back off Joe Burrow?
Single word: Isaiah Simmons. The linebacker/security/cornerback/Swiss Army blade has been Brent Venables unmistakable advantage this season.
He is an agreement top 10 pick in the up and coming NFL Draft and his extraordinary capacity to play various positions make Venables’ activity marginally simpler. Expect Venables to feature his skilled safeguard in a large number and assortment of routes in order to create disarray for Burrow, much as he did against Tua Tagovailoa last season.
What is the sense around Clemson, regardless of whether it be fan base, training staff or players about how this LSU group is seen? Is it certainty or to a greater degree an anxious vibe with regards to the solace level of dominating this match?
There is no feeling of apprehension around the Clemson Tigers. For what reason would there be? They have been on this stage four out of the last five seasons.
While the Tigers unquestionably regard LSU and what they have achieved they comprehend that they have confronted “the best offense ever” and the “best group ever” previously, and left with a brilliant trophy.
Give us several under the radar players you could see having a major event for Clemson and why?
First on the under-the-radar players for the Clemson Tigers would be linebacker Chad Smith. Smith was named the MVP of the Fiesta Bowl in the wake of having a calm, yet extremely gainful battle. The Fiesta Bowl demonstrated what he was prepared to do, and if the Tigers are going to leave New Orleans with a success, he will presumably must have a presentation equivalent to that of the Fiesta Bowl.
In all out attack mode side, I would state the player that could be a X-factor for the Tigers would be wide recipient Amari Rodgers. Rodgers’ capacity to run the stream clear and over-the-center courses, joined with his not exactly tremendous size give the chance to him to lose all sense of direction in inclusion and mess up contradicting protections like Hunter Renfrow previously.
I am as yet taking a shot at that, so search for it Sunday on Clemson Maven. In any case, in the event that you need a victor, I believe that Clemson’s understanding and speed on safeguard will be excessively much for the Bayou Bengals. Clemson goes to 30-0 and turns into the first consecutive national hero throughout the entire existence of the College Football Playoff.
At depressed spots over the most recent few weeks, I’ve steeled myself for a misfortune on Monday. Not excessively I need it. No, its idea makes me need to bounce off the Crescent City Connection after the game. Be that as it may, my mind instructs me to be prepared for the most exceedingly terrible.
So. Here’s the most exceedingly terrible:
1. This is the best group LSU has played all season. Our Tigers need another “best game” after 14 of them. That is hard.
It feels like we’ve been challenging math, both in offense and wins, all season. We can’t prevent our minds from going here. Much like anything great in life once you move beyond, gracious, 25, we stress: When is everything slamming down? Presently would be the most noticeably awful time, however that additionally feels fitting in an unusual manner. Kindly put my cerebrum into a tree shredder and turn it on high.
2. The Superdome includes more weight.
Awful THINGS HAVE HAPPENED HERE BEFORE, BOTH TO THE SAINTS AND LSU. Proceed onward BEFORE THE PTSD SETS IN. I SAT FOUR ROWS UP IN JANUARY 2012 AND OUR THERAPIST WOULD LIKE US TO STOP TALKING ABOUT IT.
3. Brent Venables will play out some Frankenstein crap on us.
This is the common point that is generally sensible. Clemson’s cautious organizer is excellent at his particular employment. Imagine a scenario in which he makes sense of what every other person proved unable. Have you begun blowing a gasket yet? Welcome. It’s cold in here, yet in any event there are other people who share the torment.
4. Joe at long last has an awful game.
Much like the math wizardry, consider the possibility that Joe relapses. Indeed, even only for a quarter? Each game this year, we’ve arranged for the “awful” game. It’s never come. Shouldn’t something be said about at this point? WHAT IF? Pass the bourbon, if you don’t mind I’m beginning to hyperventilate.
5. Isaiah Simmons braces Clyde and we self-destruct.
Did I notice that Clemson is great? Simmons is possibly their best player. And keeping in mind that we didn’t require Clyde for the Peach Bowl, we positively need him Monday. Clyde has been in this way, so powerful coordinating toward moderate linebackers in inclusion and performing keep going ceremonies on them.
Isaiah Simmons isn’t that buddy. He can cover Clyde in the open field. We envision Clemson dropping back in inclusion, surging three, covering all the wide collectors, Joe looking out for Clyde to spill out of the backfield and getting sacked over and again when Clyde can’t get open. Yippee.
6. Trevor Lawrence: additionally great!
He should have Burrow’s season before Burrow did. The wunderkind with streaming locks has been brilliant since an early season swoon. Would you be able to envision the frightfulness of somebody doing to us what we’ve watched Joe do to different guards all year?
7. Clemson wins the red-zone fight.
Recall how damn baffling the Auburn game was? The offense was making mulch out of the vaunted Auburn resistance but then, they couldn’t score in the red zone. Reddish and that little runt Bo Nix some way or another stayed, despite the fact that Nix resembled a nine-year-old running for his life throughout the day. Field objectives suck. Clemson could make us kick field objectives. Barf.
8. The feared Travis Etienne story wins out.
DID YOU KNOW TRAVIS ETIENNE IS FROM LOUISIANA? DID YOU? LSU DIDN’T RECRUIT HIM MAYBE YOU’VE HEARD AFTER EVERY TIME HE RACES 70-PLUS YARDS FOR A TOUCHDOWN [gunshot to the head].
Etienne is super acceptable. Furthermore, truly, Les Miles incredibly destroyed in allowing him to leave. Be that as it may, here we are. On the off chance that Etienne can break a couple of long ones against a safeguard that has been helpless to large plays now and again this year, Yikes City.
9. Clemson’s freak WRs win the one-on-one match-ups. Once more.
I viewed with merriment a year ago as Clemson’s child eliminators relinquished Alabama’s corners again and again in man inclusion. Those eliminators? Turns out despite everything they play for Clemson.
Kristian Fulton and Derek Stingley Jr. will have their hardest test since covering Alabama’s wideouts prior this year. That wasn’t enjoyable. I expect LSU will play a great deal of man, as well, so every time Lawrence hurls the ball, I’ll cover my head in my shirt and sit tight for everything to be finished
