Fun with Portis

Clinton Portis Former Miami (Fla.) running back Clinton Portis now hosts a talk show on the ACC digital network.

Clinton Portis ran for over 2,500 yards as a member of the Miami Hurricanes from 1999-2001.  After a nine year career in the NFL, Portis has come back to the ACC and is hosting a short talk show on the conference's digital network.  

"Clinton's Corner," has already been host to some of the more high-profile names in the ACC.

But don't expect in-depth analysis and well-researched debate on the program, but rather an opportunity to be entertained and see the lighter side of the conference's best coaches and players.

Portis has the ability to pull back the curtain for fans to see a side of their favorite ACC personalities that they wouldn't normally get a chance to see as well as ask questions that can push a player or coach's buttons just well enough to get them to laugh at themselves.  He asked his latest guest, P.J. Williams, who he thinks is the best quarterback he's played with at FSU, fellow reigning national champion and current teammate Jameis Winston (who happens to be just a few feet off camera at the time) or Buffalo Bills quarterback and former teammate E.J. Manuel.

Unintimidated by the Heisman trophy winner looming just a few feet away, Williams said he would choose Manuel over Winston.  Portis agreed and the two then went on to mock Winston's throwing style.  Portis then challenged both Williams and Winston to recreate the dancing scene from Williams favorite movie, The Wood.  This is not the only ridiculous behavior that Portis has gotten people to have on his show.  

Portis has recently gotten Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer to look back on some of the funny moments of his career, he's also baited Clemson coach Dabo Swinney into doing an Al Pacino impression and shown off his own dance moves win a segment he did with current Miami (Fla.) running back Duke Johnson.
