How Clemson QB DJ Uiagalelei turned things around and quieted the doubters

CLEMSON, S.C. -- DJ Uiagalelei is blessed. That is his word and he uses it earnestly and often.

For instance, he woke up Monday morning, two days after beating Wake Forest in overtime while throwing for 371 yards and five touchdowns, and for that, he is blessed. He arrived at Clemson's football facility and worked out with his teammates, the ones who have had his back through 13 months of turmoil and frustration, and for that, he is blessed. He carried a jug of water from the gym to his weekly meeting with the media.
