A collection of Clemson fans chanted “J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets” as Trevor Lawrence walked into Notre Dame Stadium on Saturday.
Who knew Clemson Football fans were aboard the New York Jets train?
As Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence entered Notre Dame Stadium Saturday, a collection of fans chanted “J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets” at him. The Athletic’s Pete Sampson—a Notre Dame Football beat writer—revealed the nugget on his Twitter account.

Lawrence, 21, came down with a COVID-19 diagnosis over a week ago. He missed his team’s uncomfortable victory over Boston College and will be in street clothes when his No. 1 ranked Tigers square off against the No. 4 Fighting Irish in South Bend, IN.
The kid is considered by most to be the best professional quarterback prospect in quite some time. His abilities cover all areas: arm strength, accuracy, poise, size, mobility and so much more.
At 0-8, the Jets are currently on track to snag the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL draft where they’d immediately select Lawrence. It’s not anything Sam Darnold wants to see (or hear about as the 2020 season progresses), but it’s the reality everybody is currently living on a day-by-day basis.
The nightmare scenario that exists in Jet land is obvious: the Jets fall to the 2-5 New England Patriots Monday night and eventually allow the evil genius, Bill Belichick, to supplant them as the worst team in the league—thus moving from one Hall of Fame quarterback in Tom Brady to a potential stud in Lawrence.
The other worry is that the powerful and mobile righty pulls an Eli Manning and avoids the Jets. There really isn’t much stopping him from pulling off such a move if another desired destination is manufactured.
No matter what plays out, there appears to be at least one group of Clemson fans ready for Lawrence to take the professional stage in Gotham Green.
Clemson and Notre Dame are moments away from kicking off on NBC while Trevor Lawrence watches from the sideline.
