By reading the heading of this article/posting you’re probably thinking that someone is being a smart alek about the recent struggles the Tigers have been facing over the past few weeks. And if you’re a South Carolina Gamecock fan, you’re laughing it up hard with how the Tigers keep falling on their faces. Failing to capitalize and close out games that they have had in hand. But there is one thing Tigers fans can be certain of…This is a young team that is bound to get better as the years go by. But there are certain concerns that this Tigers team has as they get ready to go down Tobacco Road and face ACC rival, North Carolina Tar Heels. One, can the Tigers get a lead against another team seeking their first win in conference play and keep it. The second and biggest concern is how quarterback Parker will perform.
Against The U Parker had a dismal game as he threw 14-for-33 for 149 yards and three, count them THREE interceptions. There is no way possible a team can win any kind of game if the offense keeps turning the ball over. Another concern that fans have with Parker is if his mind is on football or on that minor league baseball contract that is rumored to be worth over $1Million!
Either way, The New Storm of Ellington and Harper hope to storm into Chapel Hill, NC and take advantage of a team that has been wrecked with suspensions and other controversies such as an assistant coach having ties/working for athletic agents. You can guess how the NCAA liked that news when it was leaked.
This game is going to be played on NATIONAL TELEVISION!!! Yes, the Tigers are on television again as this game will be aired on ABC at 3:30PM on Saturday. North Carolina hopes to ride the wave of momentum of their two wins and a balanced rushing attack of John White and Shaun Draughn who both are averaging over 120 yards per game at this point.
The winner of this game is going to be the team whose rushing game is on top of their opposing defense and control the clock. Either way, Clemson fans get ready for what promises to be a fun game to watch whether at home on tv or at the stadium. But I have a sneaky feeling that UNC is going to pull off the victory, and that is what I’m apologizing for.
