Miller's game status could be last-minute decision

Clemson coach Tommy Bowden says he may have to wait until the absolute last minute to decide whether all-star defensive back Justin Miller will play in Saturday's critical ACC game at Georgia Tech. Miller, who suffered a hip pointer last week against Middle Tennessee State, would be replaced by sophomore Tye Hill.

NO-HUDDLE IN-DEPTH: The Anderson Independent-Mail has a detailed story about Clemson's return to a no-huddle offense. Well worth the time. For more on the no-huddle offense, here's a shorter story from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

THIS WRECK CAN RAMBLE: Georgia Tech's powerful running game will be a serious test for Clemson's defense, according to The Greenville News. And here are five questions for the Jackets from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

MORE ON TECH: The State has a good story on the Clemson-Georgia Tech rivalry, which may be the most important ACC game for both teams each year. There certainly have been some great contests in the series. (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has more here.)

A.D. ON BOWDEN: Clemson athletic director Terry Don Phillips spoke in Sumter, S.C., on Monday and said he's taking a wait-and-see attitude toward coach Tommy Bowden:

�It would be unfair to say this is a make-or-break season for Tommy,� said Phillips, who spoke to the Sumter Rotary Club Monday at Sunset Country Club. �I really respect Tommy and his staff, the way they go about their jobs. He is the kind of man you want your program run by.�


NEW ANNOUNCER NAMED: Clemson has selected Pete Yanity to serve as interim play-by-play announcer for the football season. I'm sure they'll go nationwide in their search for a full-time replacement, but they should hire Don Munson. He's a damn good announcer.

NOTEBOOK: The Greenville News has a notebook full of notebook-like things. Check it out.
