CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Citadel coach Brent Thompson was awed by most of what he saw when Clemson let the Bulldogs practice at its indoor facility in September because of Hurricane Irma. One thing, though, struck him more than anything else - a slogan on the wall of the building that said, "Best is The Standard."
"It stuck with me and probably will stick with me forever," said Thompson, who has used that motto with his players ever since.
The Bulldogs (5-5) of the Football Championship Subdivision try to put then into practice when they take on No. 4 Clemson (9-1, No. 2 College Football Playoff) on Saturday.
