Devin Booker was on everybody’s list to watch this spring and summer. The Michigan native exploded on the Mississippi prep circuit and the word was out across the nation. Everyone wanted to see what the hype was about. It was up to Booker, who hadn’t been seen by most prominent national scouts, to prove his mettle on the big stage.

Rightfully so, it was one of the worst performances in BCS bowl history and it made...
Why is Clemson favored on a neutral field against a more talented SEC school? I have no idea but I’ll take the “free” 3.5 points all day (or night in this case) long. Last year a far more experienced Clemson team was a 3 point favorite in Death Valley over a young Auburn team playing their first away game of the year. So again I ask, why is Clemson a 3.5 point favorite in...
CLEMSON - The status of Gifford Timothy and more from Thursday night's post-practice interview with Dabo Swinney.
CLEMSON - It appears that Gifford Timothy is healthy enough to suit up for Saturday’s season opener against Auburn in the Georgia Dome.
CLEMSON - The Rubber Match in the Georgia Dome is just a few days away, and Tajh Boyd couldn’t be more excited.
CLEMSON - It’s been four years since Tyler Shatley last played on the offensive side of the ball during a game.
