Of all the questions facing Cav coach George Welsh this week as he looks to improve upon Saturday's collapse at Clemson, the biggest is "Where do I begin?"
After being shellacked by the Tigers in Death Valley 33-14, Welsh is left to look at a secondary that had multiple coverage breakdowns, a defensive line that made mental errors and lacked a pass rush and an offense that was blanked in the first half.
Welsh would never be in such a position, however, had it not been for the rash of injuries and suspensions his team has faced this season.
"Between the academic suspensions, the assault suspensions and the injuries, we're hurting," Welsh said.
