Week 5 College matchups to Watch

ND Vs Clemson

We all know it appears the luck of the Irish is back. Despite a laundry list of starters out for the season or banged up they keep on winning. Defense is the beast for ND and the main reason they are winning. We all know the big names

Clemson lost who? Does not seem to matter. their defense picked up right of were it left of in 2014. Like ND the defense is the heart and soul of this team.

Sure there is
Ronnie Stanley Vs Shaq Lawson DE/LB

But keep an eye on
Mike Williams WR Clemson - Kid is kinda making a name for himself
Kevin Dodd DE/LB Clemson
Ben Boulware LB Clemson
Joe Schmidt MLB ND - now he is the brains of the unit

This will be a game about which defense can pound the other offense into submission.

My number 1 match to watch will be

Jayron Kearse Clemson 6032 210 4.50
Vs
The WRs of ND which by the way he did call out this week. Chris Brown I am sure is will to take him up on that call out

A 6-4 of lean, mean, ball-hawking machine
Big question with him is can he minimize the occasional brain cramps

Ok I guess only squirrels stop by so try this one

Dogs vs Bama.

Question to be answered?

Are the Dogs OLB/DE for real?

Is the big guy at NT for the tide really a top 10 pick?

A'Shawn Robinson, DT, Alabama 6032 312 5.18

has left disappointed and wanting so far this season as a top 10 pick

Then there is a boat load of other talent all over the field to watch.

Now if you get the West Virgina game keep an Eye out for

Karl Joseph, SS, West Virginia 5111 197 4.57

One of the players I love to watch. He is all out and balls to the wall the entire game. Talk about bring the lumber. amazing he has not been injured in his time at WV amazes me. I watch this kid and just can not imagine the damage he would cause on kick coverage. It has been a while since such a hard hitting defender that is so technically sound in their tackling, it makes just smile. very rarely will he get a flag for a bad hit. wish he was a bit bigger but still he will make you say dammmmmm more than once in a game. leaving players blowing snot bubbles on the turf.

dude is just down right nasty plus he has solid coverage skills to boot.

Small school game?

Appalachian State vs. Wyoming

Doug Middleton, S, Appalachian State: Middleton 5115 210 4.52

Might just be one of the best all around safeties in the country. In the box or single safety up deep he appears to have the skill set needed. He is one of those guy you hope gets invited to the pre beauty pageants bowls to see how he matches up.
