Clemson, SC (AP)- October 25, 2001
Following a stunning 38-3 blowout loss to North Carolina, Clemson returned to the practice field this afternoon only find their practice stopped by Tommy Bowden after 10 minutes. He instructed the players to head for locker room while he and his assistant coaches examined an unidentified “white, powdery substance” on the field. Local CDC and state law officials were called in to inspect the substance and informed the coaches that practice could continue as planned. “We informed Coach Bowden that the white, powdery substance he was unfamiliar with was the goal line” said an FBI representative.
