Cox/Getty Images)Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney has updated the Tigers’ plan at the quarterback position for this weekend’s Texas A&M game.The No. 2 team in the country played two quarterbacks – Kelly Bryant and Trevor Lawrence – in the season-opening blowout win on Saturday. That’s the plan for the road game against the Aggies, too.Swinney told reporters that Clemson will again be playing both Bryant and Lawrence against Texas A&M.“We definitely will play both quarterbacks,” Swinney said. “There’s no doubt about that. Nothing happened [against Furman] to warrant not playing both those guys.”Bryant is an experienced veteran and has been named the starting quarterback, but Lawrence is one of the biggest QB recruits in years.Swinney is saying that both QBs will play, but he isn’t divulging any other details.“We’ll see as the week [of practice] goes,” Swinney said. “I won’t lay out what our plan is before the game. You like to have a little secrecy as to your plan. But I’ll tell you both of them are going to play.”Clemson and Texas A&M is arguably the biggest game of college football’s Week 2 slate. ESPN’s College GameDay announced on Sunday morning that it’s heading to College Station, Texas for the contest.This will be the first big game of the Jimbo Fisher era at Texas A&M. Clemson will have to come out strong.last_img read more

Noble to Pay USD 8.2 Mln in Fines

first_imgzoom Offshore drilling contractor Noble Corporation said on Monday that it had reached a final settlement with the US Department of Justice (DOJ), concluding a two-year investigation into the company’s operations and systems aboard the drillship Noble Discoverer.The settlement agreement also covers certain record keeping issues related to the Kulluk drilling rig, which was previously crewed by Noble personnel.Under the terms of the agreement, Noble will pay USD 8.2 million in fines and USD 4 million toward community service as designated by the DOJ.These charges principally relate to deficiencies and maintenance issues raised by the U.S. Coast Guard during an inspection of the Noble Discoverer following a successful drilling season in offshore Alaska during 2012.Noble said that the concerns related to the Noble Discoverer have been addressed during the renovation and modernization of the rig which occurred as part of an extensive shipyard program conducted in Korea and Singapore.Noble noted that it had strengthened its training programs to ensure that its operations more aptly reflect the company’s “deep commitment to safety, compliance and environmental protection.”Many of the company’s own initiatives were incorporated into an Environmental Compliance Program (ECP), which was part of the settlement agreement reached with the Department of Justice on Monday.last_img read more
