Play Clemson every year?

At Georgia Tech, you get to do that!

No doubt Coach 404 is thrilled with the news.

    That’s certainly bad news if you suck as bad as Georgia Tech does, and it’s bad news for anyone in the short term. It’s going to be very interesting, though, to see if Clemson can maintain their performance from the past ten years or so over the next five given the changes in the game and Dabo’s seeming unwillingness to adapt.

    More like Dabo is ecstatic he gets to play the NATS ever season.

    FSU got SCREWED, though. Man. They have to play the ascendent Miami and Clemson every season.

    Hell if they still have season ticket holders, I’m sure they’re excited. Get some real football coming through town.

      The athletic department has to be excited that they’ve got a second game every other year that they’ll be able to sell out.

      • They have always had that. They play Clemson at home on their away years at Georgia.

          Yes, I’m aware, I imagine they’re thrilled that will continue to be the case as it was not certain before this announcement.

          nerdfootball is calling the sept. 5th game a “home” game, I don’t think so my friend…that western carolina game is looming large for nerdfootball to get back on track…#SOMETIMESICRACKMYSELFUP!

    September 10th Clemson hosts Furman and the Dawgs play Samford. Two weeks later the Dawgs host Kent St. What the fuck, over?

    I’m thinking “Free Shoes U” got the short end of the stick on that draw.

    Louisville, Wake and Clemson are pretty happy though.

    Better than the 1-7 the SEC is talking about, IMHO.

  11. I mean, let’s be honest—when you’re the worst program in the league, any perma-opponents you get stuck with are going to be a challenge.

    Am I missing something here??? A 13 game regular schedule???????

      They worded it weirdly. “Three permanent opponents and the remaining ten teams two times during a four year cycle” means an eight game conference schedule with three permanent and five others rotating yearly.

  13. For an SEC version of this, I ended up with the following:

    Georgia – Auburn / Florida / South Carolina
    Tennessee – Alabama / Florida / Kentucky
    Florida – Georgia / Tennessee / Kentucky
    Missouri – Kentucky / Vanderbilt / ?
    South Carolina – Georgia / Auburn / Mississippi State
    Vanderbilt – Mississippi State / Missouri / ?
    Kentucky – Florida / Tennessee / Missouri
    Alabama – Auburn / Tennessee / Ole Miss
    Auburn – Georgia / Alabama / South Carolina
    LSU – Arkansas / Texas A&M / Ole Miss
    Ole Miss – LSU / Mississippi State / Alabama
    Mississippi State – Ole Miss / Vanderbilt / South Carolina
    Arkansas – Texas / Oklahoma / LSU
    Texas A&M – Texas / Oklahoma / LSU
    Oklahoma – Texas / Texas A&M / Arkansas
    Texas – Oklahoma / Texas A&M / Arkansas

    The obvious problem with the numbers difference is that I don’t have a 3rd for Missouri or Vanderbilt. But I think this accomplishes at least as much as the ACC’s does in terms of creating exciting matchups yearly. Feedback?

    • SEC needs to move to a 9 game conference schedule and then do 3 permanent opponents and then 6 & 6 on the rotational opponents. I think yours didn’t work our because you have too much SWC inbreeding going on with TAMU, UT, OU, & Ark. 😉

    Whelp Coach slingblade can’t play Clemson every year if he’s fired from the flats this season so theres that. But that said, he should go ahead start packing now.

    The ACC can keep Clemson GT going as well as both Duke UNC, and UVa UNC but the SEC is looking at 1 rivalry game.

    Meanwhile in Hoover…
