Hot Take:Trevor Lawrence is About to Pull a Tim Tebow

You know when you get that weird feeling in your gut, you don’t quite know if it’s indigestion from 3am Taco Bell or if it’s a spicy take.

On this rare occasion, it’s the latter for me.

I think Trevor Lawrence is about to return to Clemson the same way Tim Tebow returned to Florida in 2009.

Let’s start by saying that Trevor is 100 times the prospect that Tebow ever was, but the competitive nature aligns and I’ll be the first to say, take the guaranteed money.

Let’s rewind to 2009. Florida has just won the natty and the celebration was commencing. Tebow steps on stage and everyone thinks he’s about to announce that he’s declaring for the draft.

Tim said “ Swerve” (probably) and said he’s returning for his senior season.

His senior season resulted in a 8-5 record and was extremely underwhelming and resulted in a 13-1 record and a sugar bowl win.

Okay, so what does this have to do with T-Law?

Trevor has had an amazing college career that has resulted in him being the consensus number one overall pick…. what else? One national championship sure, no one can take that away, but no Heisman… it could’ve been his this year, but Covid took that away.

“Not just about the money”

If you look at the next two drafts, Trevor is a certified number one pick. If he goes into the draft this year or the next year, he will still be a number one pick. A serious injury is the only thing that risks his draft potential.

Here’s the caveat, if Trevor wins the Natty again this year, he’s done. Jags/Jets, enjoy your franchise QB.

If he doesn’t win, expect him to make a heroic return to Clemson and win all of the trophies. The ones that he will never have a chance to get again.

Quick recap, win and he’s in the NFL. Lose and Trevor dominates the ACC for another year.

Clemson Football & The Cost of Racism

Every city in the world is holding Black Lives Matter protests. It’s awesome to see and gives my cold dead soul some optimism.

Trevor Lawrence led his team in a peaceful protest in Clemson, South Carolina.

I love that move by him. It shows leadership and unity. That’s the guy you want leading your locker room.

Fans of the University, or maybe just fans of racism, decided to ruin the peaceful protest by driving through with confederate flags hanging out their window.

He wasn’t the only person asking people to stop committing to the school.

I will never hide the fact that I’m a Gamecock fan and I want Clemson to Collapse. Never in a million years did I think we could see the collapse because of some morons who care about “state rights.” It was about slavery stop hiding behind that Billy Bob.

As of 7am June 15th we haven’t had any de-commits as a backlash, but I’m sure they are coming.

I salute every single athlete that de-commits. You shouldn’t play for a team, where the fans clearly don’t care about your life. They shouldn’t hate you on Monday and root for you on Saturday.
