Wednesday, January 3


The Clemson Tiger Men's Basketball contest against the Fightin' Seminoles of Tallahassee will begin at 7:00, promptly, but possibly a minute or two later, as sports contests usually do such. The Tigers are looking to repeat their success in opening night ACC games. Well, at least for the second year in a row. They split last year with FSU, home and home. One of the reasons for the recent win and the possibility of a consecutive opening night win is the change in schedule.

No longer are we forced to open with Duke. Nothing is/was more depressing than that opening the ACCeason with a loss. Additionally, this will be Mays' first ACC game. Though we are 25-0 with Mays in the line-up, we are 0-0 with him in the line-up. This will be the biggest test of his career.

If you are looking to track tonight's game, by all means do so here. If you are looking to listen as well, click here. While interweb technology may be great, I would rather watch on TV.

Nonetheless, Good Luck young Tigers! And continue reading below.

Firstly, here is a preview from CBSportsline- with a typo:
"Senior forward Al Thornton, who leads the Tigers with 16.1 points, was limited to a season-low 14 minutes because of foul trouble but still scored 11 points. "

Secondly, Crazy Joe Lunardi has us listed in this week's Bracketology as a 5 seed playing in Spokane.

Thirdly, Bilas, refers to a possible win for GT on the road against Clemson. Also, notice he refers to himself in the third person as "The Bilastrator" Need to be an insider for this one.

SportsNation Jay Bilas: I like their team. Tech is young, but very talented. With Peacock out, they lose a tough kid that makes strong plays, but they have plenty of guys to soak up those minutes. I think a big one will be Clemson. If Tech can get a good road win, they could get confident and take off.

Fourthly, if you are in to this, the over/under prognostication from FoxSports.

Fifthly, Jeff Goodman thinks we are an imposter

Sixthly, Seth Davis says, "Sell!"
