Get your inexperienced players the most playing time possible

This is the most important key to the game. Why? Your inexperienced players are going to play the rest of the season. It’d be one thing if Clemson’s freshmen were not going to play significant snaps against the likes of Louisville, Notre Dame, and Georgia Tech, but they are. You need to get the game-ready for these contests and the only way to do so is by putting them in the game. Let Deon Cain, Ray-Ray McCloud, Garrett Williams, Mitch Hyatt, Jake Fruhmorgen, and even Kelly Bryant play significant amounts of playing time on the offense Saturday. Let Christian Wilkins, Albert Huggins, Mark Fields, and Clelin Ferrell, among others play on the defense.

This isn’t just going to benefit you in the short-term, but in the long-term as well. Hopefully, the freshmen Tigers will see much of the field this week and will have some success as well.

What’s your thoughts, Clemson fans? What are your keys to the game?
