Wednesday’s practice report: Defense wins first scrimmage

The Clemson football team held its first scrimmage of the spring on Wednesday inside the Poe Indoor Practice Facility in Clemson.

The scrimmage was a 99-play scrimmage which the defense owned. Safety Isaiah Simmons made a bone-crushing tackle on the opening kickoff, setting the tone for the afternoon. The defense harassed all four quarterbacks, picked off a pass and forced a fumble.

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said the offense had its moments but they were too inconsistent. The veteran coach said afterwards he expected the defense to own the day and for the offense to struggle.
