Rex Ryan is never one to shy away from controversy, so when Giants rookie running back Andre Williams says that his team is “the real New York team,” it was no surprise that the Jets head coach was going to respond. However, it was a bit surprising him to pull out a college football note from his troll-bag. Ryan’s son plays for Clemson, and while Rex’s memory of last year’s BC-Clemson game may be a bit hazy, the general thought it correct.
Rex on Giants back Andre Williams: “the last time I saw him he was getting smoked by Clemson.” #nyj

BC lost to Clemson last year 24-14, but they hardly “got smoked.” The Eagles were up 14-10 on the Tigers in Death Valley heading into the fourth quarter, when Tajh Boyd scored a go ahead touchdown with 13:44 remaining. Williams, however, had a mediocre game, only rushing for 70 yards on 24 carries.
