Clemson’s offense plays well, and DJU plays well
This is probably the best-case scenario. Clemson fans get to see their beloved Tiger offense get back on track and see DJU ball out and become a draft pick for an NFL team.
Unfortunately for former offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Brandon Streeter, most of the blame for DJU’s underwhelming performances in Death Valley will be placed squarely at his feet if this is the reality of 2023. That’s a harsh prediction, but its hard to escape.
While Tony Elliott and Dabo Swinney would have to accept some of the blame for the woes of the Clemson offense over the past two seasons, Streeter would take a large share of the blame because he was the coach directly responsible for DJU’s development.
I have always liked Streeter, and I have always appreciated all the hard work he put in for Clemson University over his years as a player and a coach. Nonetheless, when the quarterback who didn’t play well under his tutelage goes to a mid-level Power Five program and performs well, and the offense he used to run makes a big jump after he is dismissed, Streeter won’t have much to fall back on to defend his job performance at Clemson since the conclusion of the 2020 season.
Clemson fans will know their program is headed back in the right direction, and they get the feel-good story of seeing DJU get back on the right track too. This is the obvious win-win scenario.
