Clemson plays Ball State today at 12:29 and can be caught on the ACC network or get off your tail, head to Death Valley, and make some noise during the drubbing. SCAR plays ECU and for some stupid ass reason our CBS affiliate is showing US Open tennis instead of SEC football. How much yelling and screaming do you think that will cause?
Otherwise, I don't have an ACC game to focus on but will be interested to see how both Georgia and Florida perform. Georgia will reportedly be without four defensive players this week, including Rambo. That information coupled with Missouri getting 2 points from Vegas would make me wager on the Tigers if I were in Vegas. ATM's first SEC game against Florida should be interesting. I don't think any of us really know what to expect out of the Gators this season so today should be a good indicator of things to come.
Following the jump, I have included a television schedule for today's games (featured games plain to see, a link to the full slate below) as well as some other items from the mothership. Per usual, we'll wrap up Saturday pregame with a dose of Motley then the Nature Boy. Be sure to check back this AM for the official Clemson/Ball State gamethread.
