Clemson just lost an old-school thumper who adds a physical element in the middle of their defense thanks to targeting. Junior LB James Skalski was ejected in the third quarter of the National Championship against Joe Burrow and LSU after he was called for targeting on LSU WR Justin Jefferson. The play is once again controversial, as some don't see the intent in Skalski's hit.
Skalski is a major loss for the Clemson defense, as he was an invaluable presence in the middle against LSU.
It didn't help that LSU scored moments later.
Can Clemson turn things around before it's too late?
