Clemson - Freshman QB, Willy KornWe didnt, but a source of ours checked out about 30 minutes of the Clemson practice over the weekend and needless to say .... saw some interesting events take place. It started off with QB Cullen Harper leading the charge down the field with the first team offense against the 2nd team defense. Didn't look bad but we got locked down around the 20 and had to settle for a field goal. Actually, had to settle for a miss field goal. My source tells me that the teammates off the field started chanting Willy, Willy, Willy, Willy. Sure enough, Bowden had Willy Korn come in and run a drive with the first team offense against the first team defense. He said the kid looked like a stud! Around a 10 play drive, finished it off with a 15 yard touchdown pass to a receiver on a crossing route. He said Korn without a doubt looked like the better QB between the two.
I'm not one to base my decision on 30 minutes worth of practice, but it has become obvious on here which way I am leaning. We are still standing behind Bowden's decision to start Harper, but Clemson fans, don't be surprised if Willy Korn is starting come Georgia Tech weekend. Actually, it really won't surprise me if Korn ends up starting over Harper when Florida State comes into town. My gamecock friends are going to come on here and whine, scream, and tell me that Korn will piss in his pants against Florida State and etc ..... but I'm not really too worried about all of that. I'll say this, there's a higher chance that South Carolina QB Chris Smelley will piss in his pants when he faces the Ragin' Cajuns of Louisiana-Lafayette this weekend than Willy Korn will playing FSU.
