Question: What's the latest on Ray-Ray?



Answer: I still think Clemson is in prettybgood shape. Burton Burns has done a great job with him. But there are so many factors with him. He lives in a foster home and lives with different people throughout the year. He is a great kid and I think Clemson is in pretty good shape there

Question: did the clemson admin pull the plug on you again?

Question: Who does Clemson and USC lose this year early to the NFL??



Answer: The Tigers could lose Justin Miller and maybe Tye Hill but I doubt Hill will go. I talked to a USC source last night that said their possibilities include Williamson, Thompson and Levey. He said Thompson and Levey were not ready but Levey hates school





Question: Coll! Assuming a win Saturday, any buzz on which bowl would like to have us?



Answer: I think Charlotte is best bet rght now but you know how political the ACC office is





Question: mickey, you get that cold jumping in the pool for the nekid women at the clevelander.



Answer: I have not seen anything like that before. Number three came on strong at the end





Question: Have some leaders finally emerged on this team? Who are they?



Answer: It is interesting that the staff os giving Barry Richardson credit for making the Miami comments before the game. They challenged the seniors to be a leader like this true freshman





Question: Lots of speculation that this is Lou's last run. Is that what you hear? Who should be looked at for replacing him?



Answer: I think he is leaving. I hear Spurrier or Charlie Weiss





Question: call me after your show if you want to eat at Mac's. i am going to be watching bball practice today



Answer: I have to go there from 5-6. The Semifinal round of the Tiger Cup Speech Competition is tonight at the Strom Thurmond Institute and you all are invited

Answer: I talked to a staff member last night and he said that is not true





Question: Who will be favored in the Clemson USC game?



Answer: Yes





Question: Did we lose anyone from the Miami game? Will Chansi take the week off at Duke?



Answer: I do not think so. I think everyone will be back





Question: Has appearing on the Bobby Hartin show in Charleston destroyed your reputation?



Answer: Only in Charleston but there wasn't much of a reputation to begin with





Question: Where do you think Spurrier winds up?



Answer: Miami Dolphins or South Carolina





Question: is your USC source giving advice to Clemson players this year?



Answer: LOL. Not that source





Question: Stock telling Levey he's ready or something?



Answer: Not Stock. My other main source





Question: any word on how the Miami game helped in recruiting? Any specifics?



Answer: I think it has helped tremendously. We have talked to several including Hannah, Clay, Robinson and all were possitive





Question: Williamson is in a similar situation to DHam...Will Stock provide him the same advice that he gave DHam? It seems to me that Stock had a conflict of interest in the DHam situation,



Answer: Stock said he was just being honest with Hamilton and I think will be honest with Williamson





Question: So, what did CW say to Kelvin after he missed that pass?



Answer: I am not sure





Question: Any chance for us with Derek Nicholson?



Answer: I doubt it. He has a top four but Clemson is 5-7





Question: Spurrier goes to a school in UF's division?



Answer: I think he is ticked that Foley and their President didn't want him





Question: Do you think NC State will be home for the holidays after Thursday night?



Answer: I think so. It couldn't happen to a nicer group





Question: With the noon start, how many recruits will not be able to make the Clemson/USC game due to "late games"?



Answer: I think most guys will find a way to get there. Plus may will be out of the playoffs by then





Question: Is it odd that Korncoot has not called any Clemson recruits since the Miami game?



Answer: Just saw him at lunch. I haven't listened or read any of his stuff lately





Question: whats the latest on Anwar Sadat Chambers from Pageland HS? also what are you hearing on shooting guard Menahem Begin from Tel Aviv HS?



Answer: Sadat Chambers will go to Clemson, USC or Virginia Tech





Question: How in the world did Clemson only get one ACC player of the week this week?



Answer: Tye Hill got robbed. Merriweather had a great week but so did the VT back.





Question: What did you hear about Stock's outburst on teh sidelines during the Tenn game?



Answer: I haven't heard





Question: If you in a position to offer advice last year and were going to be honest with DHam, what would you have told him?



Answer: On my show I said he was crazy to go. Look at the WR class last year and the one this year. He made a big mistake





Question: So USC is a tool for Spurrier to exercise his personal fight against the UF administration? Odd.



Answer: I think that is only one of his motivations





Question: Who gets hammered by the NCAA first: Ohio State, NCSU, or the coots?

Question: Are you hetring anything on potential academic scandals at NC State?



Answer: No





Question: I heard someone say that D-Ham and TB had worked out their issue...Is that true?



Answer: I have not heard but I hope so. Hamilton was a good student and good citizen when he was here. He was good to the staff and the staff was good to him. The whole thing comes down to not getting a trophy

Question: How high will Currie go in the draft?



Answer: It is a terrible year for WR. I say 2nd to 4th round





Question: Any other names for that USC job? (Up-and-coming coordinators, that sort of thing)



Answer: I think Weiss would get it unless he got an NFL job. But it would be Spurrier's to turn down





Question: Thinking about going up to Durham this weekend. Let me know if you're going to be up there. I have someone up your way that may need a ride.



Answer: I will be very disappointed if you guys did not go. Tigerbdog, I am going to Charlotte Friday night and you guys have aplace to stay Friday and/or Saturday night if you guys need





Question: I think we do not match up well with Duke at all - they remind me a lot of NC State - your opinion?



Answer: LOL. I have picked against Clemson for the last time this season. But maybe I was using reverse physcology





Question: Do you have a tape of the Syvelle CU hat-throwing incident? We need to show it to the team again...



Answer: LOL. Not the classiest way to do it

Answer: Turnovers, Injuries, schedule. I think next year could be special





Question: What do you see as our biggest need and who are we best lined up with to fill them?



Answer: I think OL and this class is about set with the current comitments. Also LB and two more are needed there. Now I think one more great WR is needed. Samper at LB and Byrd at WR would be a key. The last ingrediant is a great RB. Mike Davis would be a good one

Question: I have read in various NFL publications that both D-Ham and Washington are disappointments…one paper said Washington may end up getting cut and D-ham is not even on the active roster…How do we get these kids to stay when they are not ready?



Answer: If every player was as good as he thinks he is then everyone would go undefeated. Just be honest with them





Question: what happens to Skippy? he is not the annointed one?



Answer: I think Skip is a good football coach but I think he is out after Lou leaves





Question: Any word on Antonio Clay's up coming decision?



Answer: We talked to his uncle last night. If he decides this week it may be Miami but I am not convinced he will not keep going through recruiting
