CLEMSON, S.C. – Clemson coach Tommy Bowden needed to find out what went wrong in his team’s opening 34-10 loss to Alabama, so he went to the source.

Bowden spoke with Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban on Sunday and asked how the Tigers might improve this season.

Bowden also spoke with his father, Florida State coach Bobby Bowden; Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer and Georgia coach Mark Richt.

Bowden said he thinks his players put too much into the preseason hype of starting ninth in the country. The coach said his players couldn’t match Alabama’s intensity and came up on the short end Saturday at the Georgia Dome.
