Parker may be better off on diamond
Clemson's football team was led to the 2009 Music City Bowl by top NFL Draft prospect C.J. Spiller, who may be taken off the board next month sometime in Round 1, if things go the way ESPN.com's Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay project.
But the leader of that team was quarterback Kyle Parker, a junior signal-caller who threw for 2,500 yards and 20 touchdowns. It was Parker's first year as the starter, and it may be his last and only, especially if he keeps swinging the bat the way he has early this season.
To read Jason Churchill's take on Kyle Parker, which will say a lot about Clemson's football future as well, you must be an ESPN Insider.
