QB Trevor Lawrence is the primary reason Clemson is #1 in the pre-season polls

Clemson practiced Monday morning and while the Tigers were prancing on the Jervey Meadows grass, the AP was issuing it’s pre-season ranking that put Clemson at the top. No big shock there as the defending national champions were also ranked #1 in the pre-season by the coaches. What’s also not a shock, Dabo Swinney’s reaction to said rankings. He talked about that and today’s practice session with the media early Monday afternoon.
