Answer: I definitely believe that this program is on the rise and will very soon be consistantly in the top 10. This year should be a great opportunity for us to contend for the ACC Championship. Thanks for the compliments and support.

Question: Brandon, what is the biggest game that you played for Clemson and we won? Coots?

Answer: Probably the Virginia game this past season and the Carolina game in 98 because it locked up a bowl bid

Question: Do you have an opinion on Coach Bowden's decision to change to the White Jerseys for home play?
