We're not going to follow some old script

While CJ Spiller might be making his announcement today at 4pm, something bigger is going on just across the street from Death Valley this weekend.

In anticipation of the meeting of two of the three undefeated teams, here are a few links, Enjoy:

There should be no doubt about Clemson clout.

CnnSi power rankings: Power Rankings, #6
Espn DailyRPI: Ranked #3
ESPN Bracketology: #2 Seed
DeCourcy, Sporting News:

4. Saturday is loaded with outstanding games. If we can only see one, which game should we choose?

Choose one? Where are your priorities?

If you ask which is the most important game of the day, it would have to be Wake Forest against Clemson.

The Tigers are getting very little respect although they own probably the three best road wins of any team in college basketball: Illinois, South Carolina and Miami.

I'm getting push-back from some fans regarding that declaration because none of those teams was ranked in the most recent AP poll. I can't imagine what could mean less than a midseason poll, but apparently there are those who don't believe a team is any good without a ranking next to its name.

I'll remind you Davidson was not ranked entering last year's NCAA Tournament.

Congrats on not getting caught up in all the Spiller hoopla. We still think we're a football school when we are more excited about one football players press conference than one of the top 5 biggest single basketball games in school history. We need to realize until we do something in football again, we're a basketball school and we need to support the team like it.
