AD Phillips receives national recognition
Clemson athletic director Terry Don Phillips has been named AD of the year for the Southeastern region by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics. Congratulations, Terry Don. What do you get, another orange blazer?
* TeamXbox, Tiger fans: The software developers behind NCAA Football 2007 for Xbox give Clemson much love in this press release touting their video game. It seems we are their "signature squad." Be sure to check out the video clips that show the virtual Tigers taking it to the virtual Gamecocks.
* Korn to rock Tigertown early: Clemson commitment Willy Korn, considered one of the top prep quarterbacks in the nation, has announced that he will graduate from high school in December and enroll at Clemson in January. That's awesome.
* More commitments: Speaking of prep stars, Clemson has grabbed a couple more in-state commitments: wide receiver Marquan Jones and linebacker Scotty Cooper.
* Preseason awards roundup: Running back James Davis is up for the Maxwell Award, Gaines Adams and Anthony Waters are up for the Bronco Nagursky Award, and Roman Fry is up for the Outland Trophy. Congratulations, guys.
* And finally: I was sorry to see that the Tiger baseball team was upended in the College World Series. Congratulations for your successful season.
