Tonight is the big night. One day we will experience what Clempson and Bama fans are experiencing in the desert right now. Until then, we’ve got to choose sides.
I’ve long contended that Clemson was our sister school and that they are more SEC than SC, Vandy and Kentucky. They’re the land grant institution in the Palmetto State, have a similar alumni base, and are generally comparable to UGA. I normally don’t admit it, but today is as good a time as any. I’m a closet Clemson fan. They’re my “2nd” team. I pull for them every time they don’t play us. I long for the day when we renew the annual rivalry with our sisters to the east. It’s the perfect way to open a season.
That said, I’m all in on Clemson today. IPTAY. Beat Bama. Go Tigers. You can find detailed analysis elsewhere. I’m just a fan today.
