TIGER FRESHMAN INJURES KNEE AGAINST GEORGIA TECH

By FITSNEWS || Clemson University starting quarterback Deshaun Watson‘s comeback didn’t last long …

The true freshman phenom – making his first start after suffering a broken finger against Louisville on October 11 – sustained a serious injury to his left knee on the Tigers’ third possession against Georgia Tech in Atlanta.

Watson – whose own right leg appeared to make contact with his left knee on the play – fell awkwardly at the end of a seven-yard gain deep in Yellow Jackets’ territory.  He able to walk off the field under his own power but was quickly taken to the locker room by Clemson trainers for further evaluation.

ESPN sideline reporter Jeannine Edwards noted Watson was in “discomfort” and was “visibly upset” when trainers were examining his knee. During halftime, Watson was ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Here’s the play …

A 6-foot-3, 190-pound freshman from Gainesville, Georgia, Watson entered the game with 1,176 passing yards and 12 touchdowns against just two interceptions.  He’s also rushed for 147 yards and three additional scores.

He was five of seven throwing for 27 yards and had rushed for 40 yards on seven carries against Georgia Tech prior to his injury.

Clemson’s offense has struggled without him in the lineup, but still managed to post a 4-0 record since his injury with senior Cole Stoudt running the offense.

I imagine cock fans all over SC are thrilled over this one.

No. Your imagination is wrong.

I’m a SC fan. However, I am not “thrilled” this guy blew his knew out. That’s pretty low to experience “joy” over someone else’s devastating injury.

Huge Gamecock fan and definitely feeling horrible for D.Watson and the Clemson family today. Seems like a really good dude and clearly talented as hell too. Hope he gets back healthy soon, so we can beat you guys at full strength!

Not me, that sucks. Still going to be a good game, but would have been more fun with Watson in the game. Hopefully he recovers fine and look forward to watching him play in Columbia next year.

Nope. I never want to see a young man hurt like that. This is his life we are talking about.

I also would prefer that he would be able to play. I never want to hear “but we did not have our quarterback” after we stomp a mud hole in their Tiger asses for the sixth straight time.

You’re not much better with Watson. It’s a case of the guy not playing seeming so much better. It’s only in your mind.

Typical level of articulation for a Tater fan and a Liberal-Tarian. Ignorance does not pay. No wonder you get your @$$ kicked so much. (:

Hardly.

Don’t be so hard on FITS Norma. And if you want better analysis, go over the SCPSD….We did a couple good articles (one on Muschamp, one on the media/Democrat roads crisis) today. If you don’t like FITS, and think he’s an A-hole…. He usually copies us, and gets it wrong to boot….You may enjoy a better, more intelligent assessment …Thanks in advance…(:

You’re crazy. I saw tons of well wishes for him from Clemson fans. Still do. Never have I seen or heard one negative comment about Lattimore’s injury. By even saying one side’s fans are on a lower level in the same sentence that you’re offering “sympathy” shows the kind of fan you really are. Keep your fake empathy to yourself and grow up.

I’m not on anyone’s level when it comes down to that kind of stupidity, cheering when your opponent is hurt. You must know you can’t group everyone as the same, especially when a few fools comment or do idiotic things. I’m a 30-plus year fan and I can assure you that I wouldn’t put up with that kind of talk for a second. Lattimore was a ferocious runner and I have “mad” respect for him. He’s a class act…and so are you, “One_big_dude”. Take care.

Beating a weakened opponent is an empty win.

waaaaaah November 17, 2014 at 2:42 pm

that’s lame as hell. what team isn’t weakened by the last game of the season? Cocks managed to beat clemson on the road in 2012 with their back up QB and RB. So if y’all HAD won that year it would have been an empty win? BS. And ps- you have a 5th yr senior qb. whose fault is it he still sucks?

try to play it down November 18, 2014 at 12:33 pm

it was actually the back up QB, 3rd string RB and a point guard at wide receiver but who is counting? Remember Norma says taters don’t make excuses but some already have started to make them expecting the loss.

I wish Watson the best. He’s an awesome athlete and a lot of fun to watch.

This is his third injury in less than a year at Clemson. Let’s hope that it’s a string of bad luck and not a habitual injury type situation.

I don’t think any sane USC or Clemson fan is going to cheer an injury especially when it involves talented, quality kids like Watson, Lattimore, Connor Shaw, Tahj Boyd or Sammy Watkins.
