In the practice report from Clemson Thursday night it was reported that each Clemson football player has been given an iPad by the athletic department.

“This is a game changer for us,” said Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney. “It will give us an edge. We really appreciate (Director of Athletics) Dan Radakovich providing our entire team with these iPads.

“It is set up so that they can watch video whenever they want, individually or as a group. It makes it so much easier for our guys to study film on their own. It is a great tool. When we told the team we were getting them there was a big roar.”

Clemson's first opponent Georgia also received iPads about one week ago.



In fact, iPads are beginning to show up everywhere in football. According to CBS Sports, 8 NFL teams -
Ravens, Rams, Lions, Seahawks, Cowboys, Redskins, Panthers, and Colts and four college teams - Duke, Stanford, Syracuse, and Ohio State all issued Ipads to all their players last season.
