    Should have just used deer antler spray.

    They are the college football sweethearts right now. If this were OSU or Alabama, there would be many reports about the institutional use of these products to win, putting winning over the health of their players.

    There is a reason that Dabo tried to cover for these players during the CFP - they got this supplement from Clemson.

    That's what bothers me about this. We're talking about four players being suspended, not just one random guy. Even if they all just had a "trace" which can be attributed to a contaminated supplement, seems pretty reasonable to believe they got that supplement from Clemson. What are the odds an athletic program like Clemson orders a supplement that is contaminated? They aren't ordering from many third party suppliers. They get it straight from the manufacturer.

    At least the report notes that all 27 supplements tested from Clemson were negative.

    "In the December 2018 instance, the student-athletes were unable to identify the source of contamination. As part of the appeal process, an independent lab tested 27 supplements and products, and none came back as contaminated."

    I believe that the report says that 27 supplements used by Clemson all tested negative. The following was in the report today.

    All 27 supplements from Clemson tested negative.

    Then, how did they test positive? Either what they took wasn't provided to them by the training staff (thus couldn't be given to the lab) or Clemson didn't give it to the independent lab.

    And how would there even be any remaining supplement from what they took to be tested? What are the odds there was remaining supplement by the time the players' results were announced?

    Four?? There were three and none of them played in the playoffs. Clemson's supplements all came back negative for contaminants.

    They probably took a legal supplement, not provided by the athletic department, and it was contaminated. Your guess is as good as mine. But the athletic department supplements tested negative. twenty players were tested and three tested positive. If it were in athletic department supplements, all twenty would have tested positive. That did not happen, plus the ad supplements tested negative for contaminants.
