Trevor Lawrence has been largely underwhelming under center this year for the Clemson Tigers. After lighting the NCAA on fire in 2018 with his electric and almost flawless play, Lawrence has made far more mistakes and fewer impressive passes in 2019.
His performance against Louisville didn't help things either. He threw two first-quarter interceptions en route to a 45-10 win, bringing his season total to eight picks, twice as many as he threw all of last season.
But Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney isn't going to let the sophomore's struggles define him. The beloved coach stuck up for Lawrence, comparing his struggles to the likes of Deshaun Watson, saying that he learns and grows from his mistakes, but he doesn't let them define him.
Perhaps it was unwise of the college football world to think that Lawrence was going to improve on his downright phenomenal performance from last year. After all, it's called a 'sophomore slump' for a reason.
