Bowden a finalist for coach of the year
Clemson coach Tommy Bowden is one of nine finalists for the 2003 Bear Bryant Award. The award is presented each year to the national coach of the year.
Congratulations, Tommy. I hope you win it. Coming off the mat to win four straight (including two against Top 10 teams) after getting creamed by Wake Forest has got to be one of the greatest coaching jobs of the year.
HAMILTON'S GONE: As reported on Friday, Clemson receiver Derrick Hamilton will leave school a year early to join the NFL draft. The media's reaction is here, here and here.
BEAVIS IS ALIVE AND WELL: And may soon be doing time in Oregon. (More here.)
