Not something a guilty party would do IMO.

If you’re happy with good enough, then good enough is what you’ll be. Greatness requires the expectation of excellence.

B-Samples came back the same.  So the 3 players are out for the Cotton Bowl.  I’m sure Clemson will appeal but I think it’s safe to say Dexter Lawrence will not be returning to Clemson next year and will moving on to the NFL.

Because I like to think, I like to read. I’m into freedom of speech, the freedom of choice. I’m the kind of guy who likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder - “Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of BBQ ribs with the side order of gravy fries?” I want high cholesterol.

Rumor is that the 3 Alabama players were suspended for failed drug test too.

I heard that too..The “official” story I heard was for a violation of NCAA rules which is probably similar to the Clemson players

Yep, Satan…I mean Saban just doesn’t want it to get out they give their players PEDs or pay off the refs as well. Course, paying off the refs is a common thing for Bama.

If it was PED’s, I’m guessing that it was more than a trace amount and it doesn’t appear Alabama will be appealing this like Clemson.

Clemson, to their credit, is really good at keeping negative publicity under wraps. I’d don’t mean that as a cut, its just smart business. Every program tries to put its best foot forward which is why I wonder why Dabo made the announcement. Given the nature maybe he had to, I don’t know. Was it going to be reported by the NCAA?
That leads me to the next question. Does the NCAA report weed? What I’m getting at is a if Bama tested positive for peds, could Sabah keep it under wraps? I just don’t think that Dabo, or any coach for that matter, would tell the world that the positive test were for him peds if they weren’t forced to.

Hate that you’re disappointed in me, you should be disappointed in science. Specifically the science of piss tests and the behavior of your athletes. But, you believed Dabo’s ridiculous bullshit. And lastly, if you get too sassy them you must be a gamecock? Seriously dude, I expected more from you.


Aside from comparing you to the way a Gamecock fan would act to Clemson having something go against them I’m not sure what I said that is wrong. 

As for Dabo, he’s doing what any coach would do before a big game and deal with it in a manner that keeps his team motivated.

The ridiculous “bullshit” that Dabo did was publicly acknowledge specifically what happened, that he isn’t an expert on of substance, that he believes and supports his players while at the same time has to accept the NCAA process.  He also explained the process of what happens next the the B sample and there was an appeals process after that…Aside from the typical coach-speak it appeared to be well stated. To add to that, I have been listening to the ACC media day for the Cotton Bowl and Dabo has made the 3 players to the available to speak to the issue. I don’t know what more you can ask for.  They aren’t pointing or crying fowl.

Look cu, I absolutely despise Clemson. And there a lot of fans who are not gcocks that feel the same way. Is that so hard to understand? I’ll bet that most every Clemson fan on this board has two teams that are not their main rival that they hate. I know y’all hate ND, that goes back to Danny D. Y’all hate Bama also. When y’all take shots at GT, and some of you do it a lot, I don’t compare you to a Uga fan and I don’t get excited about the negative comments made.

Oh, I realized we are no loved by all.  It’s only getting worse the longer we stay one of the national superpowers.  You are just acting like a Gamecock fan would when voicing your disdain.  Just random blasts rather than the surgical strikes I would expect for a fan base that generates “a helluva engineer”

I don’t hate GT..Sorry to disappoint.  I didn’t care for CJP and his offense.  I am actually looking forward to GT changing direction.  I have said it on many occasions that for the health of the ACC the Coastal needs a few stallions. 

As for truly hating…That is a word that I am pretty selective to use.  There are certain fan bases I don’t care for more than the actual school.  South Carolina is certainly one of those fan bases.  I probably have less love for the tobacco road schools.

I don’t hate Bama at all.  Their fans are a cocky lot, but when you have enjoyed the success they have it comes with the territory.

You mentioned ND.  My main problem with ND is they get a seat at the table for the plays as a single and get unfair advantages in playoff consideration.

Didn’t mean to trigger you slick

I most foolishly let you get me off topic and for that I apologize. So tell me exactly how ostarine “could literally be in anything” as Dabo says.
