Clemson is trying to come back from a 16-7 halftime deficit against Syracuse without starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Lawrence was injured during the first half and won't return.

The Tigers don't have Kelly Bryant either. The veteran quarterback announced he was transferring during the middle of the week after Lawrence beat him out.

Now, Bryant could technically come back to the team if he is still in school. But if he plays in one more game this fall, his eligibility is up, and his college career would be over after the season.

Clemson fans sure wish Bryant was able to play today. Even former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley has weighed in.

Haley, the current US Ambassador to the United Nations, is a Clemson alum. She loves her Tigers.

She tweeted at halftime that she wishes Bryant "would come running out on the field" and included the hashtag #KellyThereIsStillTime.

The odds of Bryant coming back to Clemson have to be slim to none. He seems to have moved on, and the only chance Dabo Swinney might have is if Lawrence is out for a significant period of time.

Clemson now trails Syracuse 16-10 late in the third quarter on ABC.
