CLEMSON - The Clemson Tigers hit the practice fields on Monday morning
after having the day off Sunday. Tommy Bowden felt that the practice went
well.

"We had a good practice," said Bowden. "I'm glad someone asked about
practice. It was a good first day. It was cool outside. We did some
live '1st and 10' situations and tomorrow we'll run some short yardage
situations."

One of the differences for the players during bowl practices is that they
have do not have classes. Bowden said he is trying to keep the morale of
his players up by giving them the opportunity to go to voluntary functions
after all the meetings and practices.

"We have team meetings at 9:00 AM, then groups meetings and then practice.
In the afternoons, the players will have some opportunities to do things
like bowling, going to the movies, etc. They won't have a curfew until we
get to Atlanta."

Bowden knows that it will take near perfection for his Tigers to beat
Auburn, so the Head Coach is putting the team through practices consisting
mainly of repetitions.

"We'll have live work everyday. Mainly we'll be doing a lot of
repetitions to try to eliminate mental errors. The team that executes the
best will win the game."

Side Notes:

-Sports Information Director Tim Bourret said final grades do not have to
be posted until Wednesday.

The only three players in question are Linebackers Tremaine Billie and
Nick Watkins, and offensive lineman Christian Capote. None of the three
have practiced.

-Linebacker Courtney Vincent will continue to practice up to the bowl
game. Bowden said his status has been covered in previous interviews.
