Hunter Renfrow can catch passes, kiss babies

So what has Hunter Renfrow been up to lately?

According to this fun feature on Tigernet, life is a lot more interesting nowadays for the young man who made the legendary TD catch for the last-second victory over Alabama in January's national championship game. For one thing, he's had to learn a skill that could carry over into his probably-inevitable political career.

“This lady comes up to me at the baseball game and hands me this baby,” Renfrow said with a laugh. “Of course, my girlfriend is sitting right there and she is trying to coach me through it. I had to keep the head upright and stuff like that. It's been pretty crazy.”

The summer depth chart: Who's hot, who's not

Spring practice at Clemson ended a few weeks ago, but that doesn't mean football talk has been put on hold until August.

The Tigers released their summer depth chart this week, and Tigernet breaks down what it means.

Among the highlights: Veteran Kelly Bryant is listed as the starting quarterback. He's replacing superstar Deshaun Watson, who led the Tigers to the national championship and is now headed for the NFL. However, Bryant is expected to be challenged for the job by redshirt freshman Zerrick Cooper and true freshman Hunter Johnson.

Tigerpundit: From first to worst

Did you hear that Clemson won the national championship back in January?

Well, if you're depending on this blog for your information, you certainly didn't. That's because I haven't updated this thing since August 2014. Since that time, the Tigers have embarked on the greatest epoch in their history, culminating with the national title triumph over Alabama in Orlando more than four months ago.

And Tigerpundit, the very first Clemson football blogger (and maybe one of the first college football bloggers ever), has been asleep at the wheel.

Well, no more. Maybe.

I'm going to try to update this site more than four times a decade going forward. No promises, but I think I can post some stuff in the early-morning hours. My newish job could accommodate that.

That said, here's Tigernet's excellent look-back at the Tigers' amazing 2016 title run. Enjoy.
