Notes: Is Watson the greatest Clemson Tiger ever?

Hooker PC Buckeyes depend on Barrett to get them to title game
Ron Matthews | 30 December, 2016, 04:00

For one, it will be his last game.

The stakes are high: victor goes on to play for the College Football Playoff National Championship.

On Tuesday, the outspoken Tigers safety took some shots at Barrett, saying he isn't impressed with Barrett's arm, and thinks Clemson has played better quarterbacks. It could very well have been Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables talking about Boulware, too. Clemson had nine players drafted last season, second only to Ohio State, and seven of those were on defense. Elflein redshirted as a freshman with a foot injury and his first major playing time came in 2013 against MI.

Clemson will counter with maybe the best group of receivers Ohio State has faced this season, starting with likely National Football League first-round pick Mike Williams.

Ohio State's postseason game last season was also here, though the memories for the Buckeyes are much better.

Let's just hope they are flying with an attitude of gratitude.

They had to do it again last month after Pitt's stunning 43-42 home victory, the Tigers' first home defeat since 2013.

Clemson vs Ohio State: Comparing offenses

"The young man has brought tremendous credit to the community", Smith said of Watson.

"Obviously we played these guys four years ago, and they had some incredible wideouts with Sammy Watkins and those guys", Fickell said Wednesday in a press conference at the Camelback Inn.

Ohio State's defenders said they didn't think anything of it, then they celebrated on the field after the game holding up signs that said "basic defense".

One-half of the College Football Playoff National Championship will be determined when No. 3 Ohio State takes on No. 2 Clemson in the Playstation Fiesta Bowl. He is the guy at practice who keeps everybody else in line. Hunter Johnson, a five-star prospect from IN, will be part of Clemson's 2017 class, and the Tigers have already landed a commitment from Trevor Lawrence, considered the top quarterback IN the 2018 class. "Ben's not afraid to be the bad guy". Regardless of the situation or who you are, you're going to have haters, you're going to have people that like you. Third cornerback Denzel Ward will probably see a lot of Clemson slot receiver Hunter Renfrow, as should Will linebacker Jerome Baker. Ohio State was disciplined in its' contain against Mayfield, forcing the Heisman finalist to step up in the pocket and eliminating his threat as a rusher on off-script plays. I still trust Meyer more than Dabo Swinney with a month to prepare, but the gap between the two coaches is less wide than the margin between Barrett and Watson.

The more immediate concern for Ohio State is if Elflein and his offensive line teammates will be ready to go Saturday night against Clemson. Now maybe a big guy - an O lineman or D lineman, because of the nature of the game and the size and power issue - we might. "That's something I definitely want to be a part of". "I know what he wants". "And I just fell in love with the Tigers and wanted to stay down South". Venables said Boulware was the only player he ever remembers being ticked off when offered a scholarship. He led the Tigers with 114 total tackles. I just felt comfortable at Clemson and he respected it. The money's not an issue because whether I had that or not, I'd still be here doing the same thing I am. "I left that chip on my shoulder".

The Buckeyes have never beaten Clemson; the most recent matchup was a 40-35 Clemson win in 2014.
