Parker Sets the Record Straight


Clemson quarterback Kyle Parker met with the media Tuesday afternoon.  Kyle made it clear that he will be back for the bowl regardless of his playing time.

Kyle also set the record straight on his academic situation and made it clear he will be eligible to play in the bowl game.

Parker discussed the process he has taken the past few days to reach his final decision to return for the bowl game.

Kyle said that Dabo told him in his meeting on Monday that he still gives the team the best chance to win and he expects to be the starter in the bowl game.

“He told me I was the starter and I gave the team the best chance to win.  We will have to see how that translates to the game,” said Parker.

Kyle addressed the confrontation with coach Swinney that occurred after his interception.  Was it the confrontation or the interception that got him benched?

“Honestly it is tough to say.  I think it was a little bit of both.  Obviously I have been benched before for throwing an interception here,” replied Parker.
