Dabo:No Reprieve For Suspended Tigers

By Associated Press

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says the three players suspended for the 16th-ranked Tigers' opener at No. 12 Georgia, including returning starters defensive end Corey Crawford and offensive lineman David Beasley, won't get a reprieve from their one-game punishments.

Swinney suspended Crawford, Beasley, backup cornerback Garry Peters and reserve offensive lineman Shaq Anthony in March for undisclosed violation of team rules. Last week, Anthony announced his intentions to transfer.

Swinney says all had worked hard and shown good character since March. But the coach says there are consequences for their actions.

Crawford, a senior, would've started opposite All-American end Vic Beasley. David Beasley started seven games along the offensive line.

Swinney says the three will be allowed to travel with the team to Georgia if they want.
