Former Tigers get evaluated at Pro Day

A dozen former Clemson football players, including all-around good guy Willie Simmons, worked out in front of professional scouts Thursday at Clemson. (There's more on Simmons in this Bart Wright column.)

HOME-FIELD ADVANTAGE: College Football News columnist Peter Fiutak ranks Clemson as the ACC school with the biggest home-field advantage in this Q&A feature (scroll down to read the item).

THE FRIDAY FIVE: There isn't one this week, but here's an old one:

1. What was the last book you read? Did you enjoy it?
The last book I read was John Le Carre's The Spy Who Came in from the Cold. I enjoyed it very much. (I'd read it before, too, and it's a great movie.)

2. What's your favorite book of all time?
That's tough. Either The Bonfire of the Vanities or The Lord of the Rings. 1984 is right up there, as is In Cold Blood.

3. What's the worst book you've ever read?
That's tough, too. I had a hard time slugging through Saul Bellow's Henderson the Rain King. The first-person tone kind of bugged me.

4. What book that you've read would you most like to see adapted into a movie?
A Confederacy of Dunces, and I think it's in the process of being made into a movie.

5. How do you plan to spend your weekend?
Relaxing, and celebrating. The fiancee starts a new job on Monday!
