    Three-Point Stance: Farrell's new No. 1 after Clemson loses Ross

    This a huge blow to the Clemson offense and will impact

    Trevor Lawrence's numbers and ability to dominate next season. Not against the ACC, that’s still a cakewalk, but when it comes down to the playoff against Ohio State or Alabama or another team with a great defense and offensive power it will hurt.

    Justin Fields has a vast array of WRs at Ohio State and the offensive weapons for the Buckeyes are amazing. The loss of Ross to Clemson makes the Buckeyes my new pick to win it all.

    This is an example of how the loss of one key cog can change the landscape of college football immediately.

    DeAndre Hopkins Explains Why He Doesn’t Say 'Clemson' in Pre-Game Introductions

    This has clearly weighed on him for a while

    Clemson’s Memorial Stadium sits just a literal stone’s throw away from a historic building called Fort Hill. The building, which is now a library and museum, was the former plantation home of John C. Calhoun, a former senator and vice president, and a staunch defender of slavery whose property was donated to build the college after his death.

    The school is named after Thomas Green Clemson, Calhoun’s son-in-law (and a former Confederate soldier), who inherited Calhoun’s plantation and designated the land to be used for an agricultural college in his will. But Calhoun’s name is still all over the campus, including on the Calhoun Honors College.

    A petition seeking to change the name of the college was signed by over 250 students in early 2019, but in the wake of the ongoing national discussion about racial injustice, a public petition has been circulating that has gained over 8,300 signatures. Former Clemson stars Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins lent their support to the cause.

    Though this is the first time the former teammates have spoken out, it’s clear that the school’s honoring of Calhoun has weighed on Hopkins for quite some time, so much so that he declines to mention Clemson when introducing himself before primetime games.

    “I felt this oppressive figure during my time at Clemson and purposely do not mention the University’s name before NFL games because of it,” Hopkins wrote on Instagram.

    (Hopkins instead mentions his former high school, D.W. Daniel.)

    Smh... look...

    Everyone will get this.

    We won't have a season at this pace so I suggest everyone gets use to that.

    I just hope the current players stay in 2021.
