TRUE FRESHMAN SUFFERS BROKEN FINGER ON THROWING HAND

By FITSNEWS || Clemson University true freshman quarterback Deshaun Watson – one of college football’s most explosive young players – was knocked out of the Tigers’ ACC showdown against Louisville on Saturday.

And probably much longer …

The extent of the injury to Watson’s right hand (his throwing hand) was not immediately clear – although the Tiger medical staff wasted little time in declaring him out for the duration of the game, which Clemson managed to win 23-17.

Watson sustained the injury while stiff-arming a Louisville defender during a first quarter run.  He stayed in the game for one additional down after being hurt, but was in obvious pain and unable to throw the football.  After being examined on the sideline by trainers, he was ushered to the Clemson locker room so his right index finger could receive further attention.

Watson took over the reins of the Tiger offense midway through Clemson’s third game against No. 1 Florida State.  For the season, he’s thrown for 1,176 yards and 12 touchdowns against only two interceptions.  The dual-threat star has also rushed for 137 yards and another three scores.

He is 2-0 as Clemson’s starter – with wins over North Carolina and NC State.

Fifth-year senior Cole Stoudt – Clemson’s starter for the first three games of 2014 – took Watson’s place.

UPDATE: According to Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney, Watson has a broken right index finger.  That’s incredibly bad news for Tiger fans.  Depending on the severity of the fracture – and whether he needs surgery – Watson could miss anywhere from 1-2 months.

At least 6’4″, 210lb Stoudt is familiar with taking snaps from under center should Clemson ever find itself in an “inches to go situation” like they were in the FSU game.

[Watches 4th and 1 inch play.]

WTF??????

[Closes eyes really tight in disbelief at playcall.]

Yes. Another “closes eyes really tight and vigorously shakes head in disbelief” moment.
Pleasantly surprised Clemson didn’t run the last play out of the shotgun.

Boy, I’ve been around this game for a long time. I suppose there is a reason for the shotgun formation with a foot to go or a yard to go, but I’ll be damned if I know what it is.

I’ll be sure to check with Morris tomorrow afternoon as to why and doubly sure they practice snaps under center next week.

Iptay would have been sick of me much sooner if I had made those calls repeatedly.

Please point out to the Chadster that on the final play of the game…against the best run defense in the country…with no doubt as to the playcall…Cole Stoudt leaned forward and gained enough to have won the FSU game or put Louisville away twice earlier in this game. Thanks.

I’m a die-hard Gamecock, but Watson is a special kid. I hope he’s back for the rivalry game. We want to beat the best Clemson’s got.

Isn’t that the shits?

You wear a helmet with a visor so that your opponent can’t grab the face guard or gouge your eyes through it, and he grabs the edge of your helmet.

I’ve never seen a facemask penalty on someone running with the ball.

Does this stuff come naturally to Cock fans, or is it learned?

Tater Pop Quiz
1. Where is his hand?
2. Is it ever legal to grab an opponent’s face mask?
3. Is this the play where he hurt his widdle finger?

Here’s some help for you taters:
1. Grabbing the face mask of his opponent
2. Which is never legal
3. And how he hurt his widdle finger

Were you this big a stickler for the rules while Alshon Jeffrey was making a career out of pushing off on every pass thrown at him?

did a Tater fan actually just use a Gamecock receiver as an example of pushing off? Rod Gardner say HI

lulz..Tell me again about Clemson living in the past?

You remember that one time Rod Gardner pushed off. (Fuck yeah he did.) I remember Jeffrey doing it every time a ball came his way.

Yes: because no matter who you trot out onto the field, your best ever in Tajh and Sammy, and you still take an @$$-whippin’ So it does apply to SC. It won’t make a difference this year. Gamecocks’ll make it 6 in a row.

What’s sad is that all the taters have is ancient history and that’s all they can bring up. Like how good you were berfore any current members of the team were even there as in “well this one time in 1935 we won” or “traditions” kind of like storming the field after beating unranked teams at home. You have nothing in the present over USC, so all you can do is look in the mirror. Your future we will see about, but the past is all you have right now. That’s so sad! you have to read a history book to see the last time you won. LOL what makes it funny is you know its true and it just eats at you.

E Norma Scok October 13, 2014 at 6:28 pm

Well, Sparky, if I had a sticker on my car that had 65-42-4, I might agree with you, but I don’t.

Y’all have nothing else but the Clemson game that matters to you, and after winning 5 straight I’m not sure why it would. And I’m POSITIVE that’s eating at you.

double check that spanky October 14, 2014 at 9:18 am

I’m sorry but we just finished #4 in the nation, and won 3 back to back to back 11 win seasons with 3 straight top 10 teams, finished higher than Clemsux in the national rankings every year since 2009. While a long 30+ plus years ago Clemson won their only national championship, they have never won 3 11 win seasons back to back to back which USC has done, or a Heisman winner, or even a 1st draft pick (We have 2 by the way). So it seams USC has a lot more than you right now. Also with the loss to UGA which (we beat) and the loss to FSU you will have no ACC title to play for, which is useless anyway now a days, no division title either, and we are not he ones with the countdown clock to that game in our locker room for the state title, It seams the USC game is all you have and you haven’t won it almost 6 years and you know it. Keep chanting “History, history, history” because you have nothing else. Hahaha that truth stung!!! I was looking for a bumper sticker for the last game you won but no cars are still on the road from that long ago. LMAO

E Norma Scok October 14, 2014 at 1:01 pm

You’re the only one that keeps bringing up history, junior. If Clemson sucks so much..why do you even care about us?

Your hatred doesn’t affect me…at all. I’m pretty much indifferent to you.

double check that spanky October 14, 2014 at 2:24 pm

“History, history, history” In no way am I bringing up anything but what’s happening now. all you have is what happened in the past so you try this tactic?. “History history history”. And trying to call me names like junior is a desperate display on your part to act like its not bothering you. thanks for playing. “History, History History” I own you LMAO!!!!

E Norma Scok October 14, 2014 at 5:57 pm

And you continue with bringing up history when I haven’t.

And you own noone, unless you have them tied up in your basement.

Your brand of internet arguing is as old as the internet, keep screaming the loudest, repeating whatever point you are trying to make, and you think you “win”. Not much new under the sun here.

I’ve never mentioned Clemson’s history, but you continue to insist I do. I haven’t stated anything up until now, of the winning record USC doesn’t have in football against, well, anyone, unless you only count the last 5 years as history, which is what someone who has nothing else does. Like I originally said. Its sad that at this point in the season, thats all USC has to play for. It will be doubtful they will even play in a bowl, much less any championship games.

You are understandably happy with your 5 game winning record, but if you are old enough to remember (you don’t sound like you are) the lean years of winning only once every 3-4 years against Clemson, then you’ll understand why it doesn’t really bother me that much. I don’t take much stake of what 18-21 year old kids do, and I know what its like to be proud of my school winning against USC, for decades. I know you don’t, so its a new feeling to you. Enjoy it. It won’t continue forever.

In other words either do exactly what you yourself does, or write a book like you just did while claiming it isn’t eating away at you. thanks for making my point!

And you got caught in a lie.

You wrote. “I’ve never mentioned Clemson’s history, but you continue to insist I do. I haven’t stated anything up until now”

2 days ago you wrote “Well, Sparky, if I had a sticker on my car that had 65-42-4, I might agree with you, but I don’t”
If you haven’t mentioned anything until now how did you write that 2 days before “now”?

E Norma Scok October 15, 2014 at 12:06 pm

Wow…you’re fucking delusional.

Please..go back to “winning” your argument.

Wow. resort to name calling and cursing when flat proof shows your argument you are using is wrong. yep you must be winning.
