Thursday Practice Brief

Aug. 8, 2003

Clemson had another football practice disrupted by the weather on Thursday. Fortunately Clemson has not begun practice in full pads. The Tigers worked for just seven five-minute periods outside, then had a walk-through inside the new Clemson indoor track facility.

“We got some things done until the rain and lightning hit about 4:00 PM,” said Tommy Bowden. “We had to move inside to the new indoor track. It is has a cement floor, but it did allow us to go over assignments and get some things done.” Clemson practiced for about two hours inside the facility, which will be the home to Clemson’s nationally ranked indoor track team this winter. The team was able to get some conditioning in at the end of practice.

This was the third straight day rainy weather interrupted practice. “We are going to practice in the morning on Friday and give us a chance to dodge the weather. If it rains in the morning we will move it to the afternoon, if it rains in the afternoon we will move it to the night. But, starting early gives us a chance.”

The Tigers are finished with exams from summer school and thus have the entire day to work on football. They will finally put the full pads on for practice on Saturday. Fan Appreciation Day is scheduled for Sunday at Death Valley at 3:00 PM. There will be no practice that day.

No injuries were reported on Thursday and no position changes were made.
