A public university and its football team remain the target of an atheist organization.
For years Clemson University athletic officials have encouraged football players to attend church.
Meanwhile, the atheist-led Freedom from Religion Foundation has sought a player who's willing to push a lawsuit.
The problem is, they haven't found one, says Steve McConkey of sports ministry 4Winds.
"They're not able to find one person to stand up with them against the Clemson football team," McConkey says, which he calls a "victory."
FFRF chases after anti-religious lawsuits across the country and the organization has gone after Clemson and other colleges in recent years. Main targets are team chaplains and also team coaches who display religious beliefs in front of players.
Clemson's football team is led by Dabo Swinney, who has been outspoken about his Christian faith and has defied the threats from FFRF that are now two years old.
"People have just got to be who they are, it's that simple. We've never tried to force anything on anybody," he told a newspaper last year.
A second Alabama newspaper reported Jan. 12 that FFRF denies it's seeking to sue Clemson, though an FFRF attorney quoted in the same story says the atheist group would sue if a player stepped forward.
McConkey says Clemson players are not pressured to attend church or abide by Christianity. There is no attempt to coerce them.
"So they're just upset over Christian activity," he says of the FFRF and its atheist leaders.
