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.

Tonight on SportsTalk Phil and the Professor discussed the huge commitment that the USC women’s basketball team got from the number one player in the country, Heathwood Hall’s A’ja Wilson.

The Clemson football team was dealt a huge blow earlier in the week when it was announced that quarterback Chad Kelly was dismissed from the team.  Some former USC players were involved in some off the field skirmishes recently too that we needed to discuss.

You could make an argument that this was the biggest weekend in sports in the state of South Carolina.  Our two FBS level football programs, both top ten finishers the previous season, had their spring games for their respective fanbases to get a good look at the future of the program.

Steve Spurrier said the highlight of the Garnet and Black game was women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley coming off the bench to catch a touchdown pass from Dylan Thompson.  We also heard more post game thoughts from the OBC as well.

In the upstate, most of the pub concerning the Tigers spring game was about the lackluster performance of quarterback Chad Kelly who threw two interceptions, and was involved in an incident with coaches on the sidelines after he was benched.  Monday we learned that Kelly, who was vying for the starting position as the signal caller in ’14, had been dismissed from the program.

We heard spring game comments from the guy who will now be the clear favorite as the starting QB next season, Cole Stoudt.

Larry Williams from Tigerillustrated.com also joined us on the program to give us the latest on the Chad Kelly situation and provided us with his thoughts on what’s taken place with the enigmatic quarterback in the past 48 hours.

We also heard some comments from USC baseball coach Chad Holbrook regarding the Gamecocks weekend series with the Florida Gators in Columbia, and much more.
