The Jabs Start

Anyone remember Clemson assistant coach Vic Koenning telling the SC media that Calvin Johnson got away with a lot of pushoffs? Well, he's at it again this week.

Chop off the old block

In 2005 and 2006, Koenning suggested not-so-subtly that Georgia Tech receiver Calvin Johnson got away with push-offs. Now that Johnson is gone, he's questioning the tactics of the Yellow Jackets' offensive line.

"I'm concerned because it's chop-block central," he said. "We could probably learn to tackle from some of those guys."

In addition, Koenning is evidently quite the comedian. Here are his thoughts on Tashard Choice's hamstring:

Koenning isn't buying reports that Yellow Jackets tailback Tashard Choice might not play because of a hamstring injury that limited him to five carries in last week's 28-23 loss at Virginia.

"We're preparing for him to be full speed," he said of last year's leading rusher in the ACC. "They've got a medical school down there. They've got smart doctors. They'll figure something out."
