After one game, this already feels like a special Dawgs season

Clemson is off and running in the 2021 season, but that’s probably not the best analogy to use for the Tigers’ first-half performance.

Entering the season at No. 3, Dabo Swinney and the Tigers are squaring off with No. 5 Georgia in Charlotte, North Carolina. It has been a defensive struggle with the Bulldogs carrying a 7-0 lead into halftime, and that touchdown came on a pick-six.

Just how bad was Clemson’s offense in the first half? The Tigers managed 1 rushing yard at the break. No, a digit is not missing, it was a single yard.

According to FOX College Football, the last time Clemson managed that feat was in 2008. That was before Swinney was the full-time head coach of the Tigers, serving as the interim for 7 games before landing the job.

Georgia football stock report: 10-3 win over Clemson has several Bulldogs soaring

DawgNation 06 September, 2021 - 06:27am

ATHENS — Georgia football stock is soaring after the Bulldogs knocked off a No. 3-ranked Clemson team Saturday night in Charlotte, N.C.

The 10-3 victory over the Tigers surely ranks among the top 3 victories of Kirby Smart’s tenure as head coach, competing for spots with the 2017 CFP win over Oklahoma and the 2017 SEC Championship Game win over Auburn.

Jake Camarda: It’s not often a punter gets a shout out from the opposing coach, but Dabo Sweeney said Camarda should have been the game MVP and said his performance was humongous. Camarda dropped four punts inside the Clemson 20 and put two of this three kickoffs into the end zone.

Sedrick Van Pran: The first-time starter was so solid he wasn’t noticed, and that’s when you know a center is having a good game. Van Pran was up against a great defensive line but there were no snap issues.

Nakobe Dean: It wasn’t a perfect game for Dean, but his two sacks, communication and leadership on the football field was truly impressive. Georgia looked tight from an assignment and alignment standpoint, and Dean is responsible for directing a lot of that traffic.

JT Daniels: Daniels stared into the face of an elite defense returning all of its starters and avoided pitfalls for most all of the night, getting sacked just once and throwing one interception. Contrast that to Clemson QB D.J. Uiagalelei, who was sacked seven times and threw an interception returned for a touchdown. Daniels was also sharp in the check game, changing to successful run plays.

Lewis Cine: Cine was in on a team-high nine tackles, effectively patrolling the secondary to the tune of 2 pass break-ups, as well. Having a safety like Cine that can come up and blow up run plays is invaluable.
