Don’t Punt to Gio Ep 23: HEY LET’S BEAT CLEMSON

I mean, probably not, but why not?

NCAA Football: ACC Football Championship Game-Clemson vs North Carolina Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

On this week’s game preview, host Chad Floyd (@Chad_Floyd) is joined by Jake Lawrence (@therealestrjl) and for the first time in a while, Al Hood (@albhood)!

The Heels are 26-point underdogs heading into Saturday’s tilt with Clemson, so we had to talk about it. Discussed:

  • Does Trevor Lawrence or Travis Etienne make you more nervous?
  • Why hasn’t Clemson’s offense taken off from “very good” to “unimpeachably great” yet?
  • Can Carolina make tackles?
  • How to attack the Clemson defense (we didn’t come up with a good answer)
  • Sam Howell’s poise: undeniable through four games, but can he cook behind a banged-up offensive line with the likes of Xavier Thomas and Isaiah Simmons chasing him around?
  • Week 5 slate: pretty bad! But we talked at length about Duke/Virginia Tech, Wake/Boston College, Notre Dame/Virginia, and Florida State/N.C. State.
