Clemson preparing for "crazy good" Lamar Jackson and Louisville

Crazy good. That might be the best way to describe Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson and the Cardinals’ offense. No. 2 Clemson (coaches poll) takes to the road this weekend, traveling to Louisville for a matchup with the 14th-ranked Cardinals. Both teams are 2-0 and have designs on an ACC Atlantic Championship. Clemson defeated Auburn14-6 last weekend while Louisville defeated UNC 47-35. Full Story »

I can't wait to see how our defense matches up against their offense. I know it will be a challenge but I believe our defense is good enough to slow them down a bunch.

I look to see a more aggressive running and passing game from our offense. I believe the film from last week will help us challenge their defense with many new wrinkles an a lot of power football!

and can mean really good things or really bad things for your defense. You either have a defense that is getting turnovers and a lot of 3 and outs getting the ball quickly back to your offense or your defense is allowing quick scores or allowing drives that pin you back where you are getting a long field continuously to allow you to get all those yards. And looking back at Louisville's games, it seems to be the latter. Purdue put up 28 points (4 tds of 27 seconds, 4 minutes, 1 minute 50 sec, and 3 minutes 16 seconds) Purdue had 293 passing and 51 rushing. In the UNC game, they gave up 35 points (5 tds of 1 min 58 sec, 2 min 26 sec, KO return, 3 min 42 sec, and 2 min 35 sec). UNC had 400 yards 384 passing/17 rushing. This averages to allowing teams to score in 2 minutes 32 sec. Where that double edge comes in is when your offense runs into a defense that slows them down, allowing that suspect defense to have to defend more possessions, probably then allowing more points and in turn probably limiting the amount of possessions your high power offense has the ball. I think this will be the case in our game as our defense will atleast slow them down and get them out of rhythm causing them to posses the ball longer not giving up quick scores. The only thing I saw that concerns me is we seem to be running more and Louisville's defense has had decent numbers against the run. I think our oline is better than UNC's and purdues, so this may be the key. If we can run and sustain drives, we win easy.

Also, I'm not sure that Lewisville's O-line is any better than Awwww-burn's. And look what the Tiger D-line did to them. Action Jackson will be running a lot, which may be good and bad. He certainly can turn on the jets and make plays. But Clemson's defense is silly good and can shut down even outstanding offensive teams. And I believe Clemson's offense will be able to make plays against the Cardinal defense, which has been so-so so far. Goooo-Tigers!

I totally agree. UNC, as bad as they are on both sides of the ball, were in the game until the 4th quarter. They scored on a 98 yard kickoff return, and moved the ball pretty well most of the game, even playing two quarterbacks. I think Louisville's defense could be a weakness. The scary thing is letting Jackson get lose. When that happens nothing good is going to happen for us.

You have to look at it the other way too. If you have an offense that's built to pound the ball up the middle but your defense is playing bad then if you get down by a bunch of points you can't depend on your offense to pick up a quick score to shift momentum.

Tigers offensive line won't get man handled in this game. Hopefully the game plan won't evolve into another play not to lose instead of playing to win. I believe this game will be on the defensive backfield. If they cover and play solid ( no penalties ) then the front seven should ( and better ) contain Jackson inside a box. Keep in mind this is just one persons opinion and their are a lot of smart, qualified, seasoned coaches that know more than me. But then again I watch the game in tunnel vision.
