Clemson safety DeAndre McDaniel gets off easy

Prosecutors say Clemson safety DeAndre McDaniel will be accepted into a program for first-time offenders to resolve charges of aggravated assault and battery.

Remember this is the kid that beat up his girlfriend over the summer....

Interesting statement within the article -
McDaniel has remained in school and on the football team since his arrest. Clemson coach Tommy Bowden said Friday he will make a recommendation to athletic director Terry Don Phillips next week on McDaniel's team status.

So will Clemson step up and do the right thing and suspend the kid for a game or two???

Fugitive of the Week: Limas Slater

This is WLTX fugitive of the week:

Now if you saw this guy in your neighborhood, would you think something was up. Where could this guy be hiding.
Here is a hint Columbia police, check behind Jungles in five points, he is probably back there waiting for a free egg roll and some crack. If he isn't there check in front of the college mart, asking for spare change or a cigarette. If they don't find him by next Thursday, he will probably be selling used corndogs beside the stadium between the hours of 4 - 10. This has been a public service announcement provided by LOHD.

Move over Elton

If anybody is interested, Syvelle Newton will be performing this Saturday August 23, 2008 at headliners here in Columbia. I am guessing the Canadian football league didn't work out, so he has turned to music. It might actually be a pretty good show, he did write a gamecock song a couple years ago, that was featured during the liberty bowl.

Cocktail's drink of the week

The Pineapple Bomber:
I had one of these the other day in New Mexico.  A little sweet, but set me on the right path.  Hot day, out cutting the grass?  Come in and have one of these!
  • 1 ounce coconut rum (can use Parrot Bay or Malibu)
  • 1 ounce Amaretto (I like Amaretto di Saronno)
  • 4 ounces pineapple juice
  • ice (as needed)
  • Mix it all together over ice and garnish with a lime.  Pretty tasty!

8 days away and they are still working on Willy B
