Well, it’s better than nothing. After a lifeless first quarter, Tech has put together consecutive long scoring drives, though both only produced field goals. The Jackets’ inside running game is suddenly strong, with Anthony Allen and Joshua Nesbitt doing much of the heavy work while Roddy Jones and Orwin Smith contributed nice runs on pitches.
The Wreckbone has now run for 212 yards. Without the unusual fixation on passing the ball that we’ve seen today, the offense may have as many as nine or 12 points.
On the following kickoff, B-back Lucas Cox forced a fumble recovered by Clemson. Earlier, Cox ran for 22 yards on a fake punt. I forgot to tell you that when it happened, because it was the only good play Tech’s offense had run at the time. Maybe I didn’t want to jinx it. Who knows.
Nesbitt needed 44 yards to break Woody Dantzler’s ACC quarterback rushing record. He’s up to seven.
