Clemson Tigers ‘We Can Replicate (Florida State) in Practice’
CLEMSON SC– The Clemson Tigers are used to playing in noisy environments and have the target on their backs.
“I think our mindset is everybody wants to beat us (in the conference),” head coach Dabo Swinney said. “We know that Clemson has a target on its back. We will get everyone’s best. We will not get anyone’s ‘C’ game. It’s not possible. You have to get that. You must understand this if you are going to Clemson. Nobody is going to let you down. You will get everyone’s best effort that day, so you need to be prepared and built. “
That sentiment was echoed by offensive lineman Will Putnam
“Yeah I mean I’m anticipating it to be loud. I expect to get headaches from it being loud, not being capable of hearing anything, hard to think straight. But I also think that it’s good that we can practice that stuff. I don’t think I will be able to do a silent count or something like that.
” It’s going to be a great atmosphere. They have loyal fans and work hard for it. It’ll be fun, I mean it will be great.
