Clemson's Tommy Bowden was given another opportunity Monday to explain the decision to yank the scholarship of reserve tailback Ray Ray McElrathbey and instead of running with the ball, he decided to pass.
Bowden was asked two questions: Was McElrathbey habitually late to team functions, and did McElrathbey have the option to return to the team on scholarship in the fall?
"I've never commented on private things," Bowden said. "I made a comment Saturday. If you want anything else, get it off that comment or get it from Tim [Bourret, sports information director].
"It's your job to ask the question, it's mine to say no."
