The staff still had to answer questions from the media yesterday after the loss to NC State and with the juggernaut Clemson Tigers on deck. Head coach Mike Norvell, offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham, and special teams coordinator John Papuchis all spoke. Defensive coordinator Adam Fuller will speak Wednesday. One hot topic was the play of true freshman quarterback Chubba Purdy, who made his first start.
Alumnus Corey Simon has good (and correct) perspective here:
For those that are interested in Muschamp as a DC the last thing these kids need is another coach with another new system to learn. Stability and trust are most important. No microwave solutions to this rebuild. #Climb— Corey Simon (@csime90) November 16, 2020
Norvell also did his Call-in show and answered questions. With so many freshmen and sophomores playing, there’s a lot of opportunity for a young player to make the most of their opportunity and take control of a spot.

DK Metcalf is good, but Jalen Ramsey is better:
DK Metcalf aligned across from Jalen Ramsey on 30 (71%) of his 42 routes today. Metcalf caught 2 of 4 targets for 28 yards in the game.— Mike Clay (@MikeClayNFL) November 16, 2020
How did he do it? The tape never lies:
.@jalenramsey put a blanket over @dkm14 all game long. This is why you make the blockbuster trade to acquire the #madskills of JR. Super important division games where he eliminates the big plays #BaldysBreakdowns pic.twitter.com/6RMTE3rLz4— Brian Baldinger (@BaldyNFL) November 16, 2020

LAR defense — Played split-safety/single-high zone (“lock”).
That allowed CB Jalen Ramsey to travel/match vs. WR DK Metcalf.
Could see Ramsey’s physical coverage traits + the transition speed. Really limited Metcalf’s production/opportunities.
