Latest Tiger Insider Now Available

by - Correspondent -

It's open-season on Clemson coaches.

And it's not like Tommy Bowden didn't see this coming. He sat in his office before he coached his first game discussing his religion.

"As soon as I lose a few games, they'll ask why I don't spend more time coaching and less time speaking to churches," he said.

No one is questioning his speaking at churches - yet. But there are plenty of questions.

Why didn't he worry more about recruiting linemen early in his tenure?

Why did he leave Charlie Whitehurst in against a Texas Tech defense that was having its way against the current offensive line?

Is he able to make tough decisions when it comes to hiring and firing assistant coaches?

How much does he and his coaches inspire the players to excel and play as a team?

How is it that walk-on TE Morgan Woodward had just 57 less receiving yards in 2000 than Ben Hall did this year?

Does the current offensive coaching staff realize that it's not about "scheme" but it is all about heart?

Feel free to add your own. It's ok…everyone's doing it and the coaches know that after a 55-15 bowl loss that there are going to be questions.

In the meantime, as one former Clemson assistant was famous for saying, "We got who we got."

And in the latest Tiger Insider, we take a look at who we got. It's a run down of every player on the two-deep roster and an evaluation of that position. Which players surprised us this season and which ones need to look over their shoulder as we head toward spring practice.

Also in this Tiger Insider is a look at three prospects - Demetris Summers, Eric Young and Ryan Gilliam.

We also look at three former Tigers - Dexter Davis, Cliff Austin and Luis Solomon and let you know where they are now.

Also, there's a look at Fork Union Military - which has been a breeding ground for Clemson players lately.
