I'm in Charleston until the weekend, and since clearly I'm the backbone of DFIG, things around here have been kind of slow. I'm taking some time this morning to post some random happenings relating to Clemson sports and our blog.

- I've set up an ESPN Group to display your bowl picks in addition to sending them to chili -@- dannyfordisgod.com. Here's the link, set up your picks.

- There are some postseason Blog Awards announced on a Vols blog and hosted on a Wolverines blog (whaaa?), please vote for us if you feel we're deserving of any recognition, just paste our URL (http://www.dannyfordisgod.com) into the proper boxes. Thanks in advance.

- Tommy Bowden was rumored to be in contention for the Alabama job. No, I don't know why they'd want him either. Maybe if they got a powerhouse OC in there under him it wouldn't be such a confusing choice. Tommy says no to Bama, however.

- Tommy, his brother Steve, and his pop bought a Georgia plantation this week for a cool $2.7 million. Rumor has it that Bobby has just been meandering about the plantation attempting to coach chickens and goats. He then put a quarter of an orange peel in his mouth and chased Steve around the tomato patch. Info by Kevin Donahue of Fanblogs.

- Gaines Adams is a unanimous First Team All-American. Congrats, Gaines, you've come a long way, baby. From catching Walter Roark's long bombs as a WR at 8-man Cambridge Academy to ripping the heads off of opposing QBs, here's to you. He becomes Clemson's first unanimous FTA-A since Terry Kinard in 1982.

- For the first time since 1999, Clemson basketball is ranked in the Top 25, holding firm at number... 25. We are also #1 in the Sagarin rankings this week. Seriously.

To make Willy Mac happy, here's a completely unrelated picture of Slick Rick.
