Default Packer responds to writer saying Trevor Lawrence should go XFL instead of Clemson

From the Packer and Durham show on the ACC Network

Discussing article by Mike Bianchi in the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday saying Trevor Lawrence should join the XFL next year instead of coming back to Clemson.

Packer: "I don't even know why it is a topic. I said that last week in New Orleans. He has already made it pretty clear that he loves Clemson. He is coming back for his next season and that is the end of it. But some people are either stupid, can't listen or have an agenda. So take it from the man himself. He is going to be playing football in Death Valley next year."

I'm sorry but the XFL is a failed dream like all the other leagues not named "NFL" that has tried to rival the NFL. The league that played this past spring didn't even make it a full season before they folded up the tents and chairs and headed home. While I think Trevor would be a top 3 pick even if he sat this whole year out I believe that Trevor wants his degree, loves Clemson and would never turn his back on his brothers. You know sometimes it's hard for outside people to understand it's not just about football at Clemson. You don't come to Clemson to just play football. It's not a surprise that a guy in the SEC footprint wouldn't understand that.

It's interesting that you never really heard this kind of talk about Tua. What did he have left to prove? He had already won a NC and was runner up in another. That's because there is an agenda.

In fairness. That was the AAF this past year. The XFL reboot will start this year

Why in the world would TL16 leave the Clemson program, and drop down to the bare bones start up league like the XFL? Facilities, trainers, environment, coaching, everything would be a step down in class from Clemson.
