Clemson Tigers had their first annual meeting with state rival South Carolina last night. The Tigers made some mistakes which cost them dearly, but overall, I think that they did pretty well against a guy throwing mid 90's and a ranked team, as well as considering that the Tigers did not have one senior in their line up.
Very interesting to note that the SC pitcher last night Clarke Schmidt, is the brother of the Tigers pitcher, Clate Schmidt who will start the game this afternoon in Greenville (neutral) for the Tigers.
Imagine being the parents of those boys!
FWIW, Tiger starting pitcher Clate Schmidt battled and beat lymphoma last season. You always hear about stories of players never giving up, this one surely is a great story.
That's why it is so very important to enjoy one game at a time and there will be good games as well as bad ones for your players as well as for their teams. It comes with the territory.
So stop getting stressed over the silly stuff and enjoy the ride!!!
