TEXAS A&M TRADITIONS: The Greenville News examines them here. So does The State, here.

JUST CHILLIN': Clemson will be wearing special "air-conditioned" jerseys for Saturday's game in College Station, where the temperature is expected to be in the 90s.

Now, if we go 0-3 on the road trip that begins Saturday at Texas A&M, then I think we'll have some complaining.

RESERVES ROCK: Here's another story on running backs Kyle Browning and Reggie Merriweather.

THE NOTEBOOKS: Here, here and here.
