Lemar Law no longer listed on football roster

Outfielder Chris Cannizzaro and pitcher Brett Renfrow each were selected to the All-ACC Third Team. Cannizzaro had 62 hits, and 12 home runs, and finished the regular season with a .346 average. Renfrow was 6-3 this season as a true freshman with a 4.33 ERA and was also named to the All-Freshman team.

Paul Finebaum speaks about Dabo Swinney's future

Over the last week, Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney has come under fire for comments he made about the transfer portal and Paul Finebaum of ESPN spoke about his future in charge of the Tigers.

"People that graduated from Clemson, people that are Clemson fans, they don’t think Dabo Swinney is going to be there a long time. When I say long time, I mean 3 to 5 years. I think his time is nearly up."

Who knows what the future holds for Swinney at Clemson and Virginia Tech will host the Tigers this season in November in what could be a big game on Nov. 9.
