It isn’t paranoia if they really are out to get your team.

Bless your hearts, random Clemson fans.

The Post and Courier requested all ostarine-related emails, text messages and other correspondence from Dec. 1 to Feb. 10 involving athletic director Dan Radakovich, head coach Dabo Swinney, president Jim Clements and members of the sports medicine, training and nutrition staffs.

Clemson didn’t provide any correspondence involving  Swinney or Clements, except for Swinney’s pre-Cotton Bowl news conference statements, which were also heavily redacted.

But it did include a pair of emails sent to Clemson with thoughts on how players might have ingested the illegal PED.

Food tampering theory

“As a side note,” a person whose name is redacted wrote Radakovich in December, “Clemson does a lot of charitable work in hospitals with patients that could put players in jeopardy of being exposed to unknown chemicals.”

Another email was copied to six athletic department officials from a “serious tiger fan” in December. It puts forth the idea that Clemson players may have ingested ostarine as a result of food tampering at a team meal in Charlotte prior to the ACC Championship Game against Pittsburgh on Dec. 1.

Oh, a “serious” Clemson fan.  Well, then, that makes all the difference.

    Of course, it COULD have been little green men, but most likely, it was part of a strength and conditioning regimen. Just a matter of timing being a little off and you have a positive test verses a negative one.

    Seriously, …

    Gotta love the FOIA (or state equivalent) request that produces ZERO emails involving the head coach or the university president.

    More proof of how big business this sport is. The lawyers have them trained not to talk about certain things where it can be found later.

    Maybe it was tainted meat in the dining hall? Alberto Contador anyone?

    You can also look up Tom Danielson. Athletes should avoid supplements at all costs. They unregulated and can get easily cross-contaminated.

    Shocked they didn’t unearth a “here’s what cycling teams always claim when they get caught”
