Tigers Arrive in Snowy Boise

by - Correspondent -

BOISE, Idaho - Clemson's football team landed in snowy Boise, Idaho,
Wednesday afternoon and almost immediately began what will be a full week of
events affiliated with the Humanitarian Bowl.

Some of them even include football.

Tommy Bowden's team will practice today, Friday and Saturday in preparation
for the Dec. 31 game with Louisiana Tech (12:30 p.m., ESPN). The Tigers will
work out at Bronco Stadium each day.

By the time evening came around more than an inch of snow had fallen, a
dusting which easily snarled traffic in the city. But at least one Tiger was

"It's no big deal," said senior guard Will Merritt. "We've done the bowl in
warm weather, why not enjoy this?"

But even before game preparation came the first of several bowl-related
functions. Wednesday afternoon, just a few hours after arriving in Boise,
Clemson was swept away to a team dinner at the Black Angus Beef Bowl.

Today's schedule has Clemson practicing at 11:30 a.m. (Eastern), then
departing on the Thunder Mountain Humanitarian Adventure. The evening will
wrap up with another team dinner at the Cafe Ole' Mexican Fiesta Bowl.

The remainder of the schedule leading up to game day is as follows:

- Friday: Afternoon practice, then both teams will visit children at St.
Adphonsus Regional Medical Center and the Ronald McDonald House. Clemson then

will take part in the Heroes Welcome Tailgate Party sponsored by a Boise
television station.

- Saturday: Morning practice, followed by the World Sports Humanitarian Hall
of Fame "Beyond the Game Dinner" at Boise Centre on the grove.

- Sunday: Breakfast at the team hotel, and later an organized pep rally on
Basque Block.

Monday: Humanitarian Bowl vs. La. Tech.
