    Just read the Clemson story ( SI )and how much they rely on Jesus and faith for their program goals. I have absolutely NO PROBLEM with it. Their athletes are allowed to make decisions on their physical health each day taking real chances with possible nasty injuries to their bodies. So they should be able to make spiritual decisions, also. Nobody is making them play for Dabo (WHO I have always thought a lot of). The article talked about players in church and being baptized at practice. Probably will have much fewer police blotter occasions as the cops dont get much action from churches.

      The Italian Mafia were very active Catholics. Just saying. But he does seem to run a clean program with good old fashioned honesty and hard work.

        Every time it’s fourth down against Georgia and we elect to go for it there are a lot of atheists praying.

          In the case of mafioso, "very active" and "faithful adherents" are two wildly different things.
