Currie is heating up the Tiger Nation

There are a couple of stories examining the impact receiver Airese Currie has made this season. He's nationally ranked in a couple of statistical categories, and is currently rated the No. 2 receiver in the ACC. Here's The State's look at Currie, and here's the Anderson Independent-Mail's.

NO-HUDDLE SCUTTLEBUT: The State has a couple of stories about Clemson's return to the fast-paced no-huddle offense. The first says it's an offensive feature that's here to stay; the second is a column by Ron Morris.

NOTEBOOK TIME: The Greenville News has a notebook that includes the promising news that defensive back Justin Miller will play Saturday against Georgia Tech. (Miller's status is also mentioned in The State story on the no-huddle offense in the previous item.)

PREPPING FOR TECH: The Yellowjackets have rallied behind embattled coach Chan Gailey, and it shows on the field; a 17-3 upset of Auburn and a close, 14-13 loss to Florida State in Tallahassee.

Meanwhile, Clemson coach Tommy Bowden is worried as he prepares for Georgia Tech. (More here.) And Greenville News columnist Bart Wright makes the accurate observation that the Georgia Tech game will answer a lot of questions about this football team.

ANOTHER PHILLIPS TRIBUTE: Here's a column about longtime Clemson broadcaster Jim Phillips that's written by Robert Bradley, the son of legendary Clemson sports information director Bob Bradley.

CU-GT MEMORIES: The official Clemson site has posted video highlights of the 2001 Clemson-Georgia Tech game, a thrilling 47-41 overtime victory for the Tigers. Check it out.
