Remember those old Topps Turn-Back-The-Clock baseball cards.
You know, the cards that would introduce 10-years-olds to the greatness of Ron Blomberg’s turn as the first-ever designated hitter?
Anyway, with Rich Parson and Steve Suter here as honorary captains, it’s as if Maryland hopped into the time machine to go back to 2004.
Clemson has jumped out to a 10-0 lead after a quarter. Maryland, meanwhile, has run 10 plays for 28 yards, and just got its first conversion of the day.
And yes, the sarcastic applause soon followed.
Other facets of the team have taken care of other issues.
Anthony Wiseman fumbled away a punt, leading to a Clemson field goal.
Alex Wujciak got flagged for pass interference, leading to a Clemson touchdown.
And Jacoby Ford, one of the two guys who absolutely must be accounted for, ran in that score on a 17-yard end around.
So it’s 10-0 Clemson, and Maryland is on pace for a 112-yard day.
More to come.
