Others have been scheduled with barely a week's notice.

That didn't stop one attendant from stopping me on my only trip to the Clemson campus in South Carolina to whisper in my ear. "Hey, you know the guys that play over there?" he asked, then paused for dramatic effect. "They're pretty good," was the punchline.
