When will the next chat be?

The next chat is scheduled for Tuesday at 2 pm.

Is there any chance Gaines Adams turns pro?

Gaines Adams has said multiple times that he will be returning for school. Now, Sean May said the same thing last year to North Carolina fans, and he still left, but I believe Adams is a different situation. He knows he can really improve his draft stock by returning, and all signs indicate that is what he intends on doing.

Can you give us an idea of what Anthony Waters is like away from the field?

Waters off-the-field persona is quite different than his on-the-field persona. During interviews, Waters is very quiet and almost shy. What you see from Waters during the game is very genuine. He loves playing college football and he loves the fans. I enjoy watching him, because he goes all out every play. The coaching staff loves Waters attitude and leadership skills. Away from football thought, he is much more reserved, but he turns it on at the right times.

When can the coaches start going back in the homes?

The coaches will not be able to go back into the homes until January 2nd.

What will the depth chart at wide receiver look like next season?

X – Aaron Kelly, Kendrick Johnson Y – Tyler Grisham, La’Donte Harris Z – Chansi Stuckey, Rendrick Taylor

What is the status of Chris Capote?

Capote is doing fine. His hand is still bandaged, but he was walking around the team hotel in Orlando, and he was on the sidelines for the game.

Is the basketball season over now that Mays is gone?

I have a ton of faith in Coach Purnell, but this is a tough loss to overcome. Mays may have been the one player Clemson could not afford to lose. KC Rivers stepped up his scoring in the absence of Mays, but Mays will be missed more on rebounding and the press. Mays was the focal point of the press, and now Sam Perry or Julius Powell will assume his role. Clemson will use a smaller line up now, and the Tigers success will depend heavily on their shooting from the outside.
