Tommy Bowden's Post Practice Comments (5:45)

WHITEHURST UPDATE: Not surprisingly, Clemson head coach Tommy Bowden continued to be tight lipped about the status of QB Charlie Whitehurst in regards to Saturday's game against Florida State. Wednesday, Bowden maintained that Whitehurst is splitting reps with back up Will Proctor during practice.

"(Charlie) did good. (He's) splitting reps. You know, all of a sudden if he wakes up Thursday and that thing is hurting, you've wasted a bunch of time," Bowden said.

"We've got another day of practice. He's getting some work, but whether or not it's enough we'll have to decide on Thursday."

Bowden did say however that he had a good idea on what would happen with the quarterback situation. "I do have an idea, but I don't want to reveal it. CIA," Bowden said. "This time last week I knew."

QUICK HITS: Bowden said he was "nervous" about his punt team considering that FSU has blocked several kicks in recent weeks. ... Bowden said that enthusiasm for Wednesday's practice is good. ... Bowden also said he showed the celebration penalty called against Vanderbilt (in the Florida game) last weekend to his team to remind them not to take any potential celebrations too far in the coming weeks in what he termed, "highly emotional" games. … Bowden said the call was "terrible."
