Today the upstate was loaded with media presence at Clemson in order to cover a couple of things regarding both the football and basketball programs.

Dabo Swinney held two teleconferences today. One essentially addressing the off field discussion surrounding his program lately with the dismissal of quarterback Chad Kelly and the FFRF’s inquiry into religious practices taking place within the football program.  He later held another teleconference with the media that, more or less, involved conversation regarding football on the field.

Clemson head basketball coach Brad Brownell and star forward K.J. McDaniels also held a press conference to discuss K.J.’s decision to head to the NBA, and how the program will replace his production next year.

The big news around the state concerned the Clemson basketball team tonight and their star player, K.J. McDaniels, and his decision to take his game to the NBA instead of returning to the upstate next season.  Phil and the Professor provided their thoughts on the McDaniels’ decision and how it will affect the Tigers program next season.

Writer Bob Gillespie joined us tonight to discuss Pinehurst #2, a course he recently played for media day regarding the men’s and women’s US Open in June.

There was much to be discussed concerning Matt Kuchar’s showing at the RBC Heritage in Harbour Town this weekend.

The 11th ranked USC baseball team ended their 5-game losing streak and won their series in Auburn over the weekend as well.  USC pitching coach Jerry Meyers joined us live on the program to discuss the series and how he believes the team is faring overall now that they’ve taken a significant step in the right direction.

We also had former Newberry head football coach Zak Willis on the program as well.  Willis just accepted the position of head coach at Union College, a NAIA school in the blue grass state.

The Clemson football team seemingly took center state Friday on many news outlets concerning how the coaching staff handles themselves off the field.  Many media outlets, some who generally don’t cover sports, weighed in on how much religion should play a part within the confines of a public school’s football team.

Tonight Phil and KMac continued to provide to very different points of views.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation’s Annie Gaylor recently conducted an interview with a fox affiliate and explained her foundation’s position on the matter.  We played those comments tonight on the program as well.

We also had Monte Dutton provide us with his thoughts in NASCAR and recap what he saw take place in Darlington last Sunday, and much more.
