Good morning to mickey & everyone! I have an few questions. What is going on with the NCAA clearing house & K. Priester ? It seems that each year we have one player waiting on them .... !! I like the article you did on those former tiger, but once a tiger always a tiger ( we are family ) , but do we know where they are at these days ? Lastly a friend and I were talking about the Nike combat uniforms that were being do each your for a select team or big game. I know one was done for Clemson in 2009 for the SC game, but they haven been done the last two years so is Nike not doing them any more ? If they are do you think they will do one for Clemson again? 

GO TIGERS beat Georgia 



The staff feels confident Priester will be cleared but they don't know when. They need him there because I think one of the three freshmen wideouts may play.

Coach Swinney is not crazy about new uniforms but he is into marketing and Nike may push for them if the Tigers keep winning. I think you could see the pressure from Nike increase like it did with Georgia when they made a fortune to wear the uniforms they wore against Boise State.


Have not seen anything on the new class. Who showed up for summer school and who didn't?


How are summer workouts going prior to fall camp?


Thanks ,



I have not heard a ton about the voluntary workouts but I have heard good things. One player that has caught his teammates' eyes is McKensie Alexander. I hear he is a quick study. I hear Jayron KearseJayron Kearse

is extremely flexible. He needs to reshape his body but he has a huge upside. I have not heard anything negative yet. Wish I could help more but things have been quiet.

Mickey, I am a casual listener to your show. I try to catch you on my short commute to work so I don't get to hear you follow up on some things. Yesterday I heard your exchange with the guy who covers the cocks. You asked him why he thought the cocks had been good the past few years and he gave you the usual answers...SEC, Spurrier, etc. Then you asked him why he thought Clemson has been good the past few years and that's what I wanted to ask you about. He basically said that he didn't think Clemson was any good at all and that we benefit from playing in the crappy ACC. That is about the time I arrived at work so I didn't hear anymore of what you had to say about that comment. I know this guy is a friend of yours buy I hope that you didn't let that slide. Just because we have lost to the cocks, he thinks we haven't been good? Appears this guy cannot keep his bias out of his opinions. Anyone that says that, certainly hasn't been watching when we won 10 and 11 games the past two years and beaten some pretty decent teams. I along with most everyone I know are so SICK of hearing how bad the ACC is and how mighty and all powerful the SEC is. They have some very good teams in that conference. But they also have Vandy, UK, Miss St., Ole Miss, Missouri, Tenn, ARK. Boy those teams strike fear in the hearts of Clemson fans worldwide. But then again, those aren't really SEC teams I guess. Anyway, just wanted to ask you if you covered this after the interview. Enjoy your show, keep up the good work.

. He also admitted that he did not follow Clemson closely enough to know the inside. I knew the insiders' points of view. I was just asking about an outsiders point of view.
