Florida State has an edge on Clemson

Coming off a football national championship in 2013, then Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher told FSU boosters and its board of trustees they need to start thinking about upgrades to their facilities and other areas inside the football program because Dabo Swinney was building a sleeping giant at Clemson.

As we know, Fisher was correct. Now the tables have turned somewhat.

Last month, Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich teamed up with South Carolina AD Ray Ranner to ask South Carolina lawmakers to pay attention to what is happening in Florida when it comes Name, Image and Likeness (NIL), hoping to get a proposed bill passed that can protect their student-athletes in the ever-changing-world of collegiate athletics.
