Special Notice Come Early

Clemson Ticket Manager Van Hilderbrand is urging fans to arrive in
Clemson early on Saturday for the Tigers football opener with
Georgia. Over 83,000 fans are expected for the game, the largest
home opening day crowd in Clemson history and the largest crowd ever
to see a Clemson vs. Georgia game in Memorial Stadium.


Two years ago Clemson had a 12:00 noon start for a Homecoming
game with North Carolina and many fans missed the first quarter,
never mind kickoff because of the large attendance for the early
game. With an early kickoff, fans tend to arrive at the same time.
Hilderbrand is urging everyone to adjust their departure time so they
can get to Clemson in time for kickoff.


Clemson Injury Situation:

Out-Todd McClinton, second-team defensive tackle due to
feinting spells suffered during preseason. Will miss the entire
season.


Special Honors

The Clemson men's golf team will be honored prior to the game
on Saturday. Larry Penley's Tigers won the 2003 National
Championship at Karsten Creek in Stillwater, OK, the first national
championship for the Clemson golf program. Coach Penley will also
receive his national Coach of the Year Awards. The Clemson team
will be presented with the 2003 Frank Howard Award (bringing honor to
Clemson University)


Parade of Athletes

Pregame festivities will include the Clemson Parade of
Athletes. All varsity athletes in all sports will parade around the
floor of Clemson Memorial Stadium prior to the game. The group will
be led by the 2003 National Champion Clemson Golf Team.
