Christmas Gift: Swinney kept Lawrence suspension a secret from Venables

Dabo Swinney didn’t want to ruin Brent Venables’ Christmas, so he didn’t tell Venables about the Dexter Lawrence until the Tigers got on the plane to Dallas last Sunday. None of that mattered. Full Story »



Imagine sitting on that info for 3 days

If you needed any further proof that Dabo has faith in our system and depth.......let’s keep the fact that our All-American DT is going to miss our playoff game from our DC until we board the plane on the way to the game so he could enjoy his Christmas. “Hey Brent, you get the chicken or steak? By the way......” Dabo is 1 of a kind!

Big Dex looked heart broken. I hate it for him.

I doubt an appeal will be done in time for the next game, but I sure hope it works out where he can play for his sake

What exactly makes you doubt an appeal will happen in time?

I am hearing that, unless the contaminate is found, there is no grounds for an appeal.

Well I'm sure our smart dudes at Clemson can 'figure out the source' one way or another ;)

Especially since Dex and the others seemed genuinely baffled by it and probably wouldn't have really hurt them anyways to produce a supplement that had caused it if they had been taking it and not known that it was either an ingredient in it or that it was a fairly unknown banned substance.

I do know one way to find Ostarine in the Salt Bath and that is to...dump a little Ostarine in a salt bath. Now normally I don't recommend dishonesty but since this whole thing is unfair and stinks to high heaven, it will just be a way to expedite a resolution to something that otherwise may never end or just continue to cause problems for people with a guilt-free conscience.

Need to proofread the first sentence. Missing a word like “suspension”.

The one question I have is: how many players were originally tested? Were there only three and all came back positive or were there more and only these three came back positive? If anyone has an answer to this please respond.

Shame on all of you who complained about Dabo substituting early in the season and early in the game.

We can win with or without Big Dex

But there are two reasons I want him cleared. #1 He has been a huge ( no pun intended) part of this team for the 3 years he's been a Tiger. For him to be on the sideline in street clothes is a travesty. The fact that he is in the sideline at all let's me know that he hasn't done anything wrong. Dabo would not allow him to be there if he were in the wrong.

#2 His draft status. This could potentially cost Dex lots of money. Right or wrong this has tainted his name. Will teams shy away in the first 15-20 spots? Does he drop to the 2nd? Another thing is suspension. He could potentially be suspended all of next season. If that's the case and he wanted to return, he has no incentive and would most certainly declare for the draft.

I'm no closer to this situation than any fan but my suspension is that if the samples were hot and not false positives, there are tainted supplements somewhere. It's happened in the past where a supplement contained banned substances straight from production and not listed in the ingredients. I would think that there would be a trail if it were intentional. Did any of them order supplements online? Is there a charge on their credit card or account? Sure anyone could order for someone else but it would be a start in clearing their names.

That’s a real head coach. A leader. A good man.***

Really good overall situation that’s hard to improve upon.
