Back To The Future, Part II: The Good, The Bad, The Noteworthy from Ball State & Furman (plus SC State/NC State previews)

CLEMSON – Alrighty, so games two and three of 2012 were a little less enthralling than the Auburn and Florida State made-for-TV games.

So we’ll smash the Ball State & Furman efforts together, which summarily can be described as Clemson doing what it needed to do to enter the conference slate unscathed … and not much more than that.

Plus, we’ll take a peek at South Carolina State and North Carolina State, the corresponding early-September foes for 2013 coming up in a couple of months.

This is the second installment of our new biweekly feature on PostandCourier.com and the TigerTracks blog this summer. I’ll provide a glimpse to the past – evaluating throwback tape from each 2012 game – as well as one into the future, looking ahead to whichever opponent awaits correlating to that game.

We’ll resume after SEC & Media Days, starting on July 25 and continuing each Sunday and Thursday until Aug. 15.

This is a way to utilize what we’ve learned about the returning Tigers and how they’ll fit in with the 2013 team, which is why you won’t read a ton of elaboration on guys who are gone (DeAndre Hopkins, Jonathan Willard, etc.)
