Maybe this is the year for the Clemson Tigers. You knew something like the Maryland game was coming, you just didn’t know how they  would respond. The answer was with leadership, great effort, teamwork, and a Heisman candidate. I don’t care if Sammy Watkins is a Freshman. He is one of the very best players in America. He basically said “jump on my back, boys” in the second half. We keep waiting for Clemson to pull a Clemson, but maybe this is the year that doesn’t happen.

I know they’re not going to the playoffs, and I know they’re playing for the future but the Panthers MUST win on Sunday against the Skins. In order to keep fans interested, and to keep Cam Newton’s confidence high the team needs to walk off the field with a victory. I am very impressed with how they’ve had a chance in every game but losses take their toll eventually. They’re better than the Redskins and here’s hoping they prove that on Sunday.
