It's time, Clemson coach Tommy Bowden says, for the Tigers to start winning championships again.

The Tigers have been bowl eligible for seven consecutive years under Bowden and made trips to all the decent non-BCS bowls that are affiliated with the ACC: Two to the Peach and Tangerine/Champs Sports, and one each to the Gator and the Humanitarian.

And last year's squad had an exciting finish by
winning six of its last seven games, including a 19-10 victory over Colorado in the Champs Sports Bowl
in Orlando.
