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.
Google her name and you’ll get a picture of Wilson smiling. She’s very photogenic, knew the camera would always be on her and could grin her way through anything. Yet that smile covered an interior that would cut your heart out to win.

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.

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.

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.
