Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney gets it. He understands where to butter his bread.
Swinney had built into his contract a 500,000 bonus for winning the ACC championship, a rather healthy reward for achieving something many Tigers fans believe should occur every year. And in December, the Tigers routed Virginia Tech for the league crown, the program's first in 20 years.
The #16 Clemson Tigers scored five runs in the eighth inning to break a 2-2 tie and defeat UAB 7-4 in the second game of a doubleheader in front of 5,608 fans at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Tigers, who won both games of the doubleheader and won the series 2-1, improved to 2-1 on the season, while the Blazers dropped to 1-2.
For just a second, K.J. McDaniels forgot. The Clemson freshman had the ball at the top of the key late in Saturday's 74-52 Carolina win.At home, in Birmingham, Ala., it's unlikely they have anyone like John Henson. McDaniels measured Henson, who was defending him from a good two feet inside the three-point line.
CLEMSON, SC -- The first time Andre Young went to the Dean Smith Center to play North Carolina as a freshman, it wasn't the Tigers' long-standing winless streak in Chapel Hill, NC that concerned him. Instead, it was players like Wayne Ellington, Tyler Hansbrough and Ty Lawson that intrigued him more that first visit.
