What message will it send if Kelly is still the starter this week?

After what we saw yesterday?


Not the right one...

It will mean that all the comments from the OCs and Dabo have been false... and I would be really disappointed in Dabo. We know the results when Kelly starts (slow and faltering), so let's see what happens when Trevor starts. At the end of the day, it's all about the Tigers... or at least it SHOULD be.

Regardless, Dabo will still have TL to call on as a back up any time he wants him in there whether he calls him a starter or a back up, he will there if Dabo see's that he is needed to save the day, and this could go on until KB leaves after this season. And I'm sure that TL we be just fine with that decision bc he knows he is going to play any time after the 1st series of the game. KB may only have 1 series and TL finish out the remainder of the game. The only difference is that KB will be listed as the starter on paper, and who really cares as long as we know TL is there and can save the day, PERIOD!!! I don't think that Dabo will risk humiliating KB over being called starter....

It will send the message that we are undefeated and winning with what we do.

Seems easy to understand to me.

... are you saying that "What we saw yesterday" doesn't matter?

He’s right. If the “results” of what we saw with Trevor compared to KB yesterday aren’t enough for him to take over at this point then how many games will Trevor have to outperform kelly to start.....

Why do you people respond to the coot trolls?


how come anyone that questions the coaches judgement is a coot or a troll?

and that the best players don't necessarily start.

No message really. What happens I he doesn't start but pretty much dominates playing time? I want him to start and think he should, but not a huge deal if not. We just have to see how it all shakes out.

It’ll mean that Dabo values seniority and what you’ve done in the past over playing the guys that give you the best chance to win. There is no other way around it. I think Kelly’s role should be situational going forward: to mix it up on offense or to provide the team a spark, if needed. There is just no way to justify starting him.

One more thing: in our two real games this year- TAMU & GT- we have done nothing in the first two series of either game, all of which Kelly started and was the QB for. We can’t continue to start that way. Why should we?

The #1 tool that any QB has to have be successful in any game is RHYTHM, and play calling can make all the difference to a passing QB mostly. When TL was getting a mixture of plays and not the 98% passing plays, he found his rhythm and was hard to slow down.

The ONLY signal will be is that KB2 will NOT red shirt this year. :)

That's all it says.

Don't get me wrong, I still want to see KB have some playing time. But he does start slowly. TL may be best to start because of the major factor.


I think it's very obvious that TL will start.


Posted: Sep 23, 2018, 3:36 PM
 

Dabo is all about results. As long as he hasn't sucked in practice. And my guess is that he hasn't.

Both QBs will score at will vs. USCe


Men Of Their Word!

To me: it would mean early in training camp when the coaching staff said, "we will play whoever gives us the best chance to win" they meant it!
I think you could win the ACC with KB!
But, you can't beat UGA or Bama or Ohio State with him.
And, I have been saying KB up until the game yesterday! Sorry, at this point in time, TL has moved the offense much better and deserves to start! -do check my post all year up until the game yesterday!


It would mean TL must have had a TERRIBLE week of practice.***

It will mean that Dabo is undefeated and that he knows/understands his team far better than any arm chair coordinator on Tnet. It’ll also mean that KB probably prepares for a start like a veteran qb that’s been to the playoff before. I know it’s hard to believe for so many here, but the intangibles, leadership, and game prep just might not be as strong for TL yet. I’ll continue trusting the guys that spend 80hrs a week with these two. Y’all keep on spewing from the mouth. See ya at tailgate.

We all have opinions on a sports' opinion message board. The reporters with TNET do also. I respect the opinions of all Tiger supporters. It would be a dull bar if all we said was, "the coaches know best." Lighten up man, this is football. Have one on me after the next victory.


It will convey that...

Dabo has confidence in both QBs and wants them developed as well as possible before we face any real competition.

It will mean exactly what it's meant all along, and we have know this before the NCW!!! We have known it before a lot of great things that has happened with Clemson under Dabo's management/CEO leadership of our Clemson FB team. And that is he will tell the fans what he feels they want to hear as long as it doesn't effect what he intends on doing regardless of the outside OPINIONS, meaning fan base!!! Dabo has always sided with senior leadership over talent if it hasn't been that far apart between the seniors and the younger players. Most of us will say that TL is far better than KB, (I say It) but the facts are, TL probably isn't that much better than KB when we take KB's experience in consideration... At the end of the day I may not like Dabo's decision, but either way I wouldn't trade him for any coach in college FB today. And I will still be an Absolute Clemson fan until the day I leave this life to the after life!!!

I hate to say it, but I guess it means Dabo doesn't really

Care about our feelings! ??


Re: I hate to say it, but I guess it means Dabo doesn't really

I think that he does care, but he has to be careful of what he does for caring!!!

2021 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg


The message will be that


Posted: Sep 23, 2018, 4:57 PM
 

Kelly had a great week of practice!

2021 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg


Re: The message will be that


Posted: Sep 23, 2018, 6:19 PM
 

I'm OK with that now bc he knows that everybody knows what we really have in TL, and he can't leave KB in the game if things aren't working for him!!! From here on out through the rest of the season, TL will get more playing time than about any backup QB that we have ever had that was called a backup!!!

I'm sure that if KB's game doesn't make drastic improvements in no more that the next two games, Dabo will pull that plug if he hasn't already decided to do that bc of the difference in the two QB's in the game against GT. KB is on the exact same leash that Cole was on before DW4 showed out against the Tar Holes in 2014. Basically TL did the same thing starting in the second quarter yesterday at GT.

If it’s not obvious to Dabo that the O is a force with TL and not very good with KB.
Then he is not very smart but we all know he is a very smart man.
So without doubt TL will be named the starter.

Don't know who starts but remember we are one injury away from needing the other QB hence Syracuse. Reps matter to both and Brice when we can.
