After four weeks of fall camp and seven straight games to start the season, No. 7 Clemson is glad its bye week is finally here. The off week gives the Tigers an opportunity to heal from its battle wounds as well as do a little self-scouting before they return home for an 8 p.m. kick against Georgia Tech on Oct. 28 in Death Valley.
It also helps the Tigers (6-1, 4-1 ACC) recover from last week’s stunning loss at Syracuse.
“For us it is a bye week and that is what we are looking forward to,” wide receiver Hunter Renfrow said. “A loss is a loss. We are going to learn from it. Sometimes you learn more from losses than you do successes so we are doing a lot of internal evaluation and looking at how our season has gone so far through the first seven games and make the next five be the best they can be.”
Renfrow, who leads the team with 29 receptions for 282 yards, says they have learned a lot from this year’s experiences already.
“I think, we have played really well together,” he said. “I think we have a lot of fun when we are out there. Obviously, Syracuse was kind of the black sheep, I guess. But we have a lot of fun. We enjoy going out to practice every day and hanging out in the locker room so the story on this team is that we love each other and we love to have fun.”
