Talked to my son who said the team has really been dialed in as of late and practicing well and looking sharp. Said they have had some really good crisp practices.

+1 same for mine

I'd add one thing to that. From speaking with mine, they are not intimidated by Clemson. Realistic, but not intimidated. Skill positions are really really good, everyone else as good as one would expect from a top 25 FBS team. They, (especially the secondary, and LB's), know this game is just the beginning and no matter the score it doesn't dictate how well the season can go. With that...my son is very confident and is highly motivated and ready for Saturday and the rest of the season.

Abey would love to hear what Nick has said to you as well..

His coach has asked him to step up and be a leader.
I told him everyone has a their own style, He needs to find his nitch with this team.
He understands his responsibilities on and off the field.
He doesn't seem to be worried about the depth at S there are some really good athletes (Players) that will contribute right away.He mentioned no names.
His opinion is that Wofford football is back, the lack of respect for Wofford Football will soon change.
The mentality of this years team is different from last years. I think this team knows that last year they were young and hung with everyone. This year the other teams will have to try and hang with them.

He chose the FCS level to play on a high caliber team to win Championships, Conference and National.
He did not want to play for a Mid Major D1 program and gets beat on every week and no one respects.

The first thing he told me when he got off of the plane from his recruiting trip after I asked him how it went.
"Dad if I could have stayed I would have, I love it there, I did not talk to one dumb person the whole weekend, everyone is smart"
That's when I knew with 3 recruiting trips left, he would probably end up at Wofford. So of course I started doing research.

I couldn't ask for a better place for my son to get an education and play a high level of football.

I'll be at practice Friday and the game on Saturday.
Would definitely like to meet some of you while I'm in town.

Abey, how awesome is that!

I hope to meet/see you sometime ... 19T, Tenn2, Mudrat, and others also, but will be in Norway (!) for a couple weeks so it will have to be later.

The thing that I am loving to hear is that these guys are more confident because there is more experience and leadership, and perhaps chemistry, and they are PULLING FOR EACH OTHER.

Go little doggies, Fight the Fight ....

There's definitely a chip on their shoulder. And a real cool quiet confidence. I sense the team coming together and I think if we can get out of this game healthy we are going to have a special run this season.
