Clemson had some trouble with visiting Troy on Saturday and poor decision making was a major reason for it.
There were a few mental errors made by Clemson players on Saturday afternoon, but none more so than Ray-Ray McCloud dropping the ball as he was walking into the end zone on a 75-yard punt return.
I thought we would’ve learned from this after DeSean Jackson’s miscue many years ago, but carry the ball at least a few yards into the end zone before you drop it, guys. Being nonchalant is only cool if the points stay on the board.
The move took a touchdown off the board and resulted in a touchback for Troy, causing Clemson to take a slim 13-10 lead into halftime.
