In memoriam of a great Tiger -- Bob Brooks

You're probably aware by now that Clemson graduate Bob Brooks, the founder of the Hooters restaurant chain, died the other day. And you're probably aware of Brooks' contributions to the world of men watching football, drinking beer, eating wings and ogling scantily clad women. But a lot of people might not be aware of Brooks' other contributions to the world. EDSBS gets the main part right, and here's a press release from Clemson University on other things Brooks did to make the world a better place.

* Clemson -- BCS bound? According to this article, it's possible, thanks to "BCS Summer" on campus. And here's a Clemson preview from a sharp-looking new website, Just College football. (Hat tip: College Football Resource.)

* Tiger transferring: Disappointing defensive end Xavier Littleberry, who last made headlines for waving his pee-pee at a woman prior to the Champs Sports Bowl, is transferring to South Carolina State.

* Catching up with ...: Former Clemson and NFL great Michael Dean Perry, brother of William "Refrigerator" Perry.
