OCT. 29, 2007 - KYLE PARKER WEEK 13 ENTRY
We had a tough one Friday night. We lost 40-7 to Nease. They are one of our county rivals. We didn't play good at all.
We have one more regular season game left. If we win this week we are district champs and get home field advantage for the first round of the playoffs. We play Fletcher this week and the following week we have our bye.
I didn't get a chance to watch Clemson this weekend. I saw that they played well. That was a good win.
I talked to coach Swinney, coach Bowden and coach Spence this week. We talked about the situation with Willy at quarterback. They want me to come up to Clemson to talk more about the situation. It was good to get everything out in the open.
It is still not a bad situation at Clemson. I know it is not a sure thing that Willy will get the medical hardship. You never know what will happen until the end of the season. I am going to wait it out and see what happens.
If Willy does get the medical hardship I will still most likely stick with Clemson. I still feel good about the situation.
Baseball plays a big factor in my decision. I also talked with the baseball coaches this week about the situation. If I have to wait a while before I get a chance to start at quarterback I will still be able to play baseball. If I was focused just on football Clemson would probably not be the place to go if Willy gets the hardship. Since both the football and baseball programs are so close at Clemson it is a good situation for me.
I am not really getting any new pressure from other schools. I am hearing from South Florida and West Virginia. I tried to make it clear to programs that Clemson is where I want to be. I am still pretty confident that Clemson is where I am going to end up playing.
I am going to try to make it up for the Wake Forest game. I wish the Boston College game was that weekend because we have a bye. Xavier should be coming up with me.
Until next week ... Kyle Parker.
