Can Dabo Do It?

As Clemson's Mark Buchholz set the ball on tee and prepared to kick off to Alabama's Javier Arenas that Saturday night at the Georgia Dome in August, the future couldn't have been any brighter and the expectations any bigger for the Tigers. Clemson was everyone's pick to win its first Atlantic Coast Conference title in more than a decade. The Tigers were ranked No. 9 and on the verge of corralling their best recruiting class in Tommy Bowden's 10-year tenure.

Swinney welcomes trio of familiar faces to Tigers' staff

Dabo Swinney's old pals Charlie Harbison, Danny Pearman and Woody McCorvey officially were named to his Clemson coaching staff Friday and tight ends coach Mike Dooley was demoted to graduate assistant status in probably the last staff changes before the Tigers' Jan. 1 Gator Bowl date with Nebraska. The hiring of the three new coaches was widely reported last week but Clemson did not make a formal announcement for good reason: The NCAA allows only nine full-time assistant football coaches.

Goepfert, Rays blank Everblades

Estero, Fla. â€" Bobby Goepfert posted his second shutout of the season as the undermanned South Carolina Stingrays got a 3-0 victory over the Florida Everblades at Germain Arena. "I am so proud of these guys tonight," said Stingrays head coach Jared Bendar. "We played as good a game as we could possibly play tonight."

The Old Man And His Coach

Before the New York Times dispatched a reporter to tiny Harriman, Tenn.; before Sports Illustrated and ESPN and the CBS News came calling; before there were rumors of a Disney movie in the works; before all of that, Randy Nesbit had a tiny inkling of what was to come. Nesbit, see, had agreed to let a 73-year-old man play for his basketball team at Roane State Community College in Harriman. An undersized point guard and workaholic coach during his years at The Citadel, Nesbit always has had a soft spot for the underdog.

Three QBs race to the finish

NEW YORK â€" In recent years, the Heisman Trophy ceremony has been about as suspenseful as Florida vs. The Citadel. Even before it started, the outcome was never in doubt. Southern Cal's Reggie Bush in 2005 and Ohio State's Troy Smith in 2006 took home their Heismans after two of the biggest landslides in the award's 73-year history. And it was no shock last year when Florida quarterback Tim Tebow became the first sophomore to win the big bronze statue.
