SUGAR BOWL

Big, fast LSU faces big, not-so-fast Clemson and the race, despite the parable of the tortoise and the hare, should go to the swift
December 22, 1958

CLEMSON
Strong but slow, this Clemson team is seriously handicapped by its glaring lack of speed, especially in the line. This hasn't hurt much defensively, although opponents have enjoyed considerable success running outside the Clemson ends, but the Tigers' attack is restricted to the air or to shots inside tackle. The team needs a climax runner and a consistent punter, too. However, what Clemson can do, it does well; HARVEY WHITE, the quarterback, runs the option resourcefully, passes well both long and short, is dangerous when trapped, gets good yardage on his deceptive bootlegs. GEORGE USRY, a small but rough halfback, gets good short yardage, is the Tigers' finest pass receiver. The line is built around RAY MASNERI, a sound end who covers well to the inside, and BILL THOMAS, hard-blocking center who is an alert linebacker, especially effective on pass defense. Reserves are adequate, should match LSU depth.
