    So it looks like Dabo came out to admit that Clemson may have inadvertently given their players PEDS. The drugs that the players tested positive for are not found in common supplements. It would be like finding cancer meds in your Wheaties. I can't believe more isn't being mad of this situation.

    Corey, I guess we'll see how it turns out. I wonder if it would be different if it was Saban?

    I just think this would be a bigger story for just about any other college football program. The media has a love affair with Clemson since they stopped "Clemsoning" and even Herbie is sending his twin sons there as preferred walkons.

    Well Dabo was responding to a question about it, if the question had been posed like "do you think their girlfriends could have given them " the answer would have still been the same and the headline would have been "Clemson players Girlfriend may have given players PEDs.

    One thing I have seen on other boards is the question why after those positive tests didn't that trigger a test of the whole team. But I don't think even in the Pro's positive tests for PED's on a player or players triggers a test of the whole team.

    Re Testing the whole team. Given the high percentage of Clemson players who tested positive, I was hoping that it would lead to a call for the whole team to be tested. That could have been disastrous for Clemson because there's no way those were the only guys using.
