Clemson’s annual Orange and White scrimmage gave the nearly 55,000 in attendance an excuse to trek up to Clemson on a beautiful Saturday. It also provided a data point to analyze as we anxiously await the 20 weeks until Clemson hosts Furman and we get another chance to watch Clemson play.
Kelly Bryant’s Struggles
Kelly Bryant’s struggles were the most obvious story of the day so let’s start there. The down-on-contact rule in the game took away his biggest asset – physical running. Confined to being a pocket passer he did not look good.
He finished 8-15 with 0 TDs, 0 INTs, and 35 yards. They only picked up just one first down while he was in the game.
There were four or five opportunities he missed that stood out. We’ll look at two. The first was a throw in the intermediate passing game.
