What do women’s undergarments and ACC football have in common?

This is all you need to know about ACC football: Clemson almost lost two practices because, on the first two days of fall camp, its players wore girdles.
That’s right.
Girdles.
First, Alabama strips Clemson of its manhood in the inaugural Chick-fil-A College Kickoff.
Now, this.
OK, so these girdles weren’t the kind of old-fashioned undergarments your grandmother orders from the JC Penney catalog. They were compression shorts designed to keep hip and thigh pads in place.
Even real football players at real football programs in real football leagues, like the SEC, wear them.
