Quick Thoughts

  • This award has become so QB-centric it’s kind of hilarious. But it makes sense, too; that is the sport’s glamour position, and as the game becomes more spread and fast-paced it allows for some bonkers numbers.
  • So, um, yeah…that Clemson offense is going to be pretty good next season, huh?
  • AJ Dillon: Can he stay healthy? His ankle injury in the win over Temple last season may have been somewhat unlucky; however, Boston College has leaned on him heavily over the course of two seasons now, too. As a freshman in 2017, he ranked third in the FBS with 300 carries; in his sophomore season Dillon carried the ball 227 times — second most in the ACC despite playing 10 games. For his career, Dillon averages just under 23 carries per game.
