Team preview: Clemson
Blue Ribbon Yearbook previews the 2005 college football season, exclusively on Insider.
Is it every year, or every other year, that we sit back and wonder about the future of Clemson coach Tommy Bowden? Whatever the case, this is one of those seasons when Bowden's neck is going to be resting on the chopping block from the first game in September until the season finale in November.
Let's just hope things don't end in a nasty fight, the way they did last season.
It has been a rugged off-season since the Tigers finished 6-5, but had to decline a bowl invitation in the aftermath of the embarrassing on-field brawl that followed Clemson's 29-7 victory over South Carolina.
Six Clemson players will serve one-game suspensions this season for their participation in the melee and four others received letters of reprimand.
