Few days away

The big bowl game is almost here! With the big Tiger showdown only a few days away, I'm starting to hear a lot of smack talk coming from the LSU fans. While I will be the first to admit it is going to be a tough game for Clemson, I wouldn't say we are out of the game just yet. The LSU team has already began assuming they are going to win this game hands down, but as we know as Tiger fans, we can do some amazing things with are backs against the wall.
Dabo has hopefully been improving the offensive line that we saw in the game that will not be mentioned at the end of the season. If the offensive line has shaped up and can hold off the impressive LSU defense and give Boyd enough time to hit his open receivers, then the Tigers might just come home with a bowl victory. I know that I would love to see us bring home a great post-season victory and show the nation that we are National championship material.

Ryan Jenkins

Clemson is recruiting another player from Georgia. It seems to be a trend in this recruiting class, that we must get the majority of our players from the Peach state. The Tiger's have committed a wide receiver. The player from Lassitter high school has been committed since July and still plans on becoming a Tiger for the next season. Scouts say the player has an impressive ability to change directions and great hands. Jenkins will add another dangerous weapon to the passing game. Jenkins is another one of the great players that have came out of Georgia. The four star recruit was the thirteenth young man to commit to play for Clemson. Jenkins also has an older brother that plays for Clemson, Martin Jenkins. Ryan Jenkins admitted that being close to his brother had a large influence on his college decision.

Chic-Fil-A Bowl here we come

The real Tigers, from the REAL Death Valley, are going to play LSU in the Chic-Fil-A bowl on Dec. 31st at the Georgia dome. With Clemson coming off of a big loss from Carolina, it is going to be interesting to see how well they recover from it. They have a couple weeks to practice and get prepared with the excellent defense from the LSU team. Both Clemson and LSU have had an impressive year. The majority of experts say that the LSU tigers should pull out a win against Clemson in this bowl game, but if there is one thing we have learned as Clemson Tiger fans....Never count us out of the game. With a hard hitting offense, the LSU defensive team might be surprised to see us marched down the field a time or two. This will be only the third time that these two Tiger teams have ever met, and this game looks to be one of the most promising bowl games of the year. Clemson has a lot to gain by winning this game against a team that is considered to be BCS Championship material.
The Clemson Tiger's season has began and will end at the Georgia dome this year. Hopefully Dabo, Boyd, and the rest of the team will be able to wrestle a huge victory and bring it home to South Carolina.
