Not having seen them in the early years, How does Smith and Clayton compare to Jarred Allen and Garrett Jahn? Were they about the same at this point in their experience or were Allen and Jahn much better?

I still don't know about giving a freshman QB his first collegiate start in Death Valley. I say start Clayton, let Smith get the butterflys out of his system from the sideline, and put him in the second quarter.

After seeing Clayton is that FIU game last year, I'm glad he's not the starter. If he can't handle Shulabowl pressure, Deathvalley would be a nightmare for him. Those INTS he threw for TD returns were awful and i wouldnt like to see that in Clemson. I think Rusty goes in with a 'nothing to lose' attitude. He's a freshman, they don't expect him to be superman, and he can;t fear what he doesn't know.

"Death Valley" is not an easy place to play even for veteran teams like FSU.

We now have a Freshman QB handling a still young team :o

Was Smith the better player? I do believe that he will give us a chance to become a more consistent offense over time.

You could have started Clayton in the first Quarter and let Smith start the second and hope he plays good enough to be left in the rest of the game.

Good Luck Rusty, remember it's just a football games!!

;)Yea it's a scary thing having a Redshirt Freshman take control of the team, but I believe the right choice was made. The kid has a cannon for an arm and makes a Strong presence in the huddle. Not to take anything away from Clayton, but Rusty has shown he deserves the chance. Clemson with be a tough test for any quarterback…..only game experience will prove who will run our offense in the future. Good Luck Rusty!!!

I think that Smith was the right choice. Not only for this year, but the next 4. The first couple of games will be bumpy, but they are going to be with or without a redshirt freshman starting at QB. May as well get Rusty prepared for the Sun Belt games.

I guess you could look at it like this: Rusty will start his first ever collegiate game in one of the worst environments in the game. Death Valley on opening day will be really rough, probably worse than any other audience he will face (barring the Shula Bowl having an announced crowd of 78,000 in 2009!) Essentially every away game from here on out won't be so bad, crowd wise that is. By the time he gets to Kansas St. he'll be laughing!
