CLEMSON – Everybody has a job today.
It’s the players’ job to put their best foot forward and prove they’ve paid some semblance of attention to what they’ve been told all spring.
It’s the coaches’ job to figure out just who’s going to rush the passer, who’s going to lock down opposing receivers and who’s going to go by the nickname “Deshaun Watson Injury Insurance.”
It’s the media’s job to try and figure out who those people are going to be based on what we see.
And it’s your job, Joe Fan or Jill Tailgater, to have yourself a merry Spring game. Conditions should be fine today, a bit breezy and not particularly warm out. So, in other words, it’ll feel like it’s early October. You know, football weather.
