Clemson is currently ranked 115th in the country in yards per play, right behind North Texas and just ahead of Akron. What is going on with Dabo Swinney’s 2-2 Tigers? ESPN’s David Hale, who covers college football nationally, with a concentration on the ACC, joins AP’s Ralph Russo to dissect Clemson’s ugly opening month of the season.
What are the micro-issues causing Clemson’s offense, filled with highly touted recruits, to malfunction? In the bigger picture, in what ways might Swinney need to change the way he builds a program to continue to be among the elites in college football?
Hale and Russo dive into some of the other struggling ACC teams as well as the pleasant surprises such as Wake Forest and Boston College.
Then it’s a Week 5 preview. Hale and Russo each have their five most intriguing games of a weekend that has some huge Southeastern Conference contests and a major test for the best team outside the Power Five.
