Fans and media alike have had strong takes on the 1st half of Cade Klubnik’s 1st start.

At halftime, the Tigers are trailing the Tennessee Volunteers 14-3. Klubnik is 16-of-29 for 201 yards with 0 TDs and 0 INTs. Klubnik has struggled to work under pressure and has had a few freshman moments.

The Tigers had a couple of promising drives that set up makeable FG opportunities. However, Clemson K BT Potter is just 1-of-4 on FG tries thus far.

Here are some of the best reactions to Clemson’s first half on offense:

Some people are just happy that Klubnik has not turned the ball over, while others are disappointed with the lack of points.

Several people have pointed out that the offense does not look much better than it did when DJ Uiagalelei was at QB.

An argument can be made that Klubnik is performing admirably given the circumstances. Making your 1st start in a bowl game has to be a tough task.

With the 3rd quarter underway, we will see if Klubnik can get his Tigers back in this game.
