Happy New Year's Eve to you all! I just got off the phone with Dabo on the CFP teleconference. He said Radakovich is leading the charge on the NCAA front. They have appealed to the NCAA to allow Dexter to play in the National Championship Game and are awaiting an answer. No time table on that, but I'll have the news for you as soon as it comes in! They are also, of course, appealing on behalf of Braden Galloway and Zach Giella, which will be much more important for next season.

I sure hope that can happen.

All 3 players will not play on Monday night, as I expected. They will be allowed to travel with the team, though, and will continue to appeal with the NCAA. If the Tigers manage to beat Bama without their top 10 NFL Draft!

Statement from AD Dan Radakovich:


“Clemson will not have tight end Braden Galloway, offensive lineman Zach Giella and defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence available for Monday’s College Football Playoff National Championship against Alabama. However, Clemson has been informed by the NCAA that the three student-athletes will be permitted to travel to Santa Clara, Calif., with the team later this week.


“As requested by these student-athletes, Clemson filed notices of appeal with the NCAA. We will continue to work with the three impacted student-athletes and their legal representatives over the coming weeks to prepare the appeals. Neither Clemson, Galloway, Giella nor Lawrence anticipate having further comment on this matter until after the appeals have concluded.”
