Georgia Plays Clemson in Less Than Eight Weeks: That leaves a lot of room for Sammy Watkins Chatter

“Behind the scenes we like our schedule.  People talk about Georgia, Florida State and South Carolina, but I’m not worried about them, I’m concentrated on what we do.  If we come out and beat Georgia, not just beat ‘em but beat the mss out of ‘em like we should, I don’t see no problems in getting started in the right direction.”

-Sammy Watkins

I’m not going to beat up on Sammy for being confident in his team.  In fact I appreciate a few of the sentiments he expressed, namely:

  • Behind the scenes we like our schedule.  I’m a huge proponent of teams laying low, studying their competition and gaining confidence.
  • I’m concentrated on what we do.  Again, I like this kind of talk.

I’m not even going to dwell on the Georgia talk individually because there is no precedent for how these Clemson players – Watkins included – perform against Georgia.

But consider Florida State and South Carolina.  Both Sammy and his Clemson squad are 1-3 against these two oponents.  Clemson is 1-3 against the Cocks and the Seminoles with a lone win coming against FSU in 2011.

Similarly, Sammy has had just one good game – that same FSU game in which he had 7 catches for 141 yards and two TDs while adding 13 rushing yards.  His other three games of this series?  14 catches, 100 yards receiving, 0 TDs, 7 rushes for 46 yards, one passing TD.

Clemson was still just 1-2 against ranked opponents in 2012 with the lone win being in meaningless bowl game that meant the world to Dabo Swinney.

That’s all I got/

    Looks like Sam has a bit of Gator in him with the mullet flavored dreads. Let’s hope Samwise can keep it in the road preseason. It is no fun watching a player lose play time because of poor decisions. However, once the whistle sounds I don’t want him on the field without paying for the privilege! Let’s rinse and repeat this: “after taking a hand off, he then had to be helped to the sideline and carted off the field with a towel over his head.” Oh MY! Let’s make that a beach towel.

  2. No Sammy Potkins jokez?

  3. The whole Potkins thing is cute but isn’t it about time we rethink the whole athletes smoking cannabis as being soooo terrible. Countless athletes have been caught….all the while playing at the highest level in their sport. To assume cannabis inhibits these players performance is a little silly to me in this day and age.
