Welcome to college football in 2020! That’s one hell of a curve ball to hit fans with right before the playoff starts.

We’re two days out from Clemson taking the field against OSU, and the Tigers just lost their OC.

As somebody with no dog in this fight, I’m not going to lie when I say that I’m excited as all hell to see how this shakes out.

This isn’t some minor coach who can be easily replaced. We’re talking about the man responsible for calling Clemson’s plays for Trevor Lawrence and the offense.

This is a huge blow.
