After a secretive lunch in the south end zone, the group of four ACC members and Tech athletic brass went down on the Lane Stadium - Worsham Field floor to check out the footbal facilities. The ACC group included Clemson Athletic Director Terry Don Phillips, who got his masters and doctorate degrees at Tech and was an assistant football coach for the Hokies. And two associate commissioners for the ACC.

They checked out all of the athletic and of course many of the academic facilities on campus. This visit was a necessity, because the bylaws of the Atlantic Coach conference insist on a formal site visit before any team can receive it's formal invite.

A former nurses aide....Mallard is on trial for leaving Gregg Biggs to die after hitting him with her car. His body remained lodged in the windshield - hidden inside her garage. As he moaned in pain...the prosecution says Mallard kept apologising but didn't call for help. ...instead she called friends who helped her dumpBiggs in a nearby park. ELIZABETH SANCHEZ REPORTING: By the time emergency officials found Biggs body there was nothing they could do. The medical examiner testified the time to get help had long passed. Doctor Nizam Peerwani/Medical Examiner (lawyer) "Do you have an opinion as to whether Mr. Biggs, if he received medical attention, could have been saved from the injuries that killed him? (doc) yes.. (lawyer) and what is that opinion...(doc) that he could have been saved..yes sir." - Before the prosecution rested its case, Biggs' son took the stand. A college student who said his father had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and mild schizophrenia....but was a good person.
Brandon Biggs/Victim's son. "Although he didn't have many friends, he was very friendly...he was very loving I would say." The defense is expected to take at least another day and because of a gag order it's not know if Chante Mallard will take the stand. If convicted Mallard could get life in prison.

((A BEER AT THE BALLPARK, IT'S ABOUT AS AMERICAN AS BASEBALL ITSELF
If you don't have a beer when you're watching baseball there's no point in coming to the game.
MANY FANS ENJOY A BREW OR TWO, BUT RECENT INCIDENTS HAVE MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL GOING ON THE OFFENSIVE.
When alcohol is being served in a stadium, it's important there be a progam, a policy and there be training.
THAT POLICY AND TRAINING IS IN ALL 28 U-S BALL PARKS. THE NON-PROFIT GROUP TECHNIQUES FOR EFFECTIVE ALCOHOL MANAGEMENT OR TEAM IS TEACHING ALL STADIUM EMPLOYEES FROM THE VENDORS, TO THE USHERS, TO THE PARKING ATTENDANTS.
It just gives them a headsup if you will what to look for what signs to look for when possibly someone is drinking.
THEY ARE TAUGHT HOW TO SPOT THOSE DRINKING TOO MUCH, HOW TO INTERVENE AND REPORT POTENTIAL PROBLEMS.
THE BEER CUP SHUFFLE, A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT, IS RUN AT EVERY GAME. IT A ASKS FANS TO QUESTION THEIR JUDGEMENT BEFORE THEY DRIVE.
SO FAR MORE THAN 13,000 STADIUM EMPLOYEES HAVE BEEN TRAINED BUT IT'S NOT JUST AT BASEBALL PARKS. THE NFL, NBA AND NHL ALSO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM.
FREE SODA IS OFFERED TO PEOPLE WHO PLEGE TO BE THE DESIGNATED DRIVER FOR THE DAY.
Baseball is more than just beer, it's family, its friends, its stangers that have beome friends, it's all good.
