Key 1: Get your freshmen going early and often

This, in my opinion is the first and most important key. Clemson has a total of 25 players on their two and three deep depth charts that are true-freshmen or redshirt freshmen on the offense and defense alone. Many of those guys will play vital roles for the Tigers this season.

That being said, they need the game experience. You need guys like Deon Cain, Ray-Ray McCloud, Mitch Hyatt, Jake Fruhmorgen, Garrett Williams, Trevion Thompson, and Kelly Bryant to get in the game and get some experience on the offensive side of the ball.

Defensively, you need guys like Christian Wilkins, Austin Bryant, Albert Huggins, J.D. Davis, Judah Davis, Kendall Joseph, Mark Fields and several others to get in the game and play many snaps.

This game may not be for the experienced, but the inexperienced need to have every opportunity to grow up Saturday. All of these freshmen or redshirt freshmen not only need to see the field often, but they need to see it early.

These guys need to go up against the best Wofford has to offer. Yes, they should play the fourth quarter when the game’s not in doubt, but the team will thrive from getting as many freshmen as possible in the game in the first half to play significant snaps. They will make some mistakes, but the team as a whole will improve because of their experience.
