I’ve never had much criticism of Aliyah Boston as a basketball player. If there was one, it would be that she isn’t “mean” enough, which channels from my experience covering A’ja Wilson when she was here.

COLUMBIA – Round-trip to Norman, please. Just a few days after discussions of an early dismissal for Texas and Oklahoma from the Big 12 seemed flatter than an Odessa horizon, a compromise was reached late Thursday night.

The NET has gained outsized infamy in Clemson circles in recent months, because it didn't seem to be aligned with reality.
If you remember last year's list of Clemson invitees to the NFL scouting combine, it was a particularly small group. Cornerbacks Andrew Booth Jr. and Mario Goodrich were joined by receiver Justyn Ross and linebacker Baylon Spector. And that was it.
Plus, there wasn't much going on for that quartet. Ross, in the process of recovering from a foot surgery, didn't fully participate. Goodrich was dealing with pain in his ribs and pulled out after the 40-yard dash. Booth was held out by a quadriceps injury. So if you were that obsessed Clemson fan tuned to NFL Network to catch the Tigers doing 40-yard dashes and three cone drills, you were very disappointed.
For today's Post and Courier, we featured Clemson guard Brevin Galloway, who had a bizarre medical situation last week but capitalized on the situation to earn some name, image, and likeness (NIL) dollars.
To be clear, it isn't really "our" CAB.The main purpose of the Clemson Athletics Branding institute (which you could actually pronounce "Cabby," if they left the "I" in the acronym) is to help athletes at Clemson maximize their name, image, and likeness (NIL) opportunities. Dabo Swinney likes the "cab" analogy because the university is providing athletes a "lift" to their NIL potential -- but they have to put in the work, or the cab fare, to get there.
