Bowden Bowl won't be a bash this year
With Tommy Bowden's job in jeopardy, it's not a happy time around the Bowden family household as the annual father/son game between Florida State and Clemson looms. (More here.) Rumors swirling around Tigernet's message board last night indicated that athletic director Terry Don Phillips offered Bowden a chance to resign today, because he's going to fire him at the end of the season. It sounds phony, but stories like that are nothing but another distraction for a team that's reeling. (More here.)
FANS ON THE RUN: The Greenville News says Clemson's players have been getting an earful from the fans in the wake of Saturday's loss.
HOLDING THEIR HEADS UP: Meanwhile, the players are expressing confidence that they can defy the odds and beat Florida State. (More here.)
McCLINTON BACK: Defensive end Todd McClinton, who has missed most of the season because of unexplained seizures, will practice today.
STATS WATCH: We're still No. 1 -- in kickoff returns.
