ACC Releases Schedule, Clemson Schedule looks favorable

Here is the PDF of everyone's schedule

Here is the official Clemson page, the site link has been adjusted to reflect the 2009-2010 as well.

Below is a screen capture:

A few key things about the schedule before a full breakdown later.
  1. The Tigers have an away game in Lynchburg, VA- Surely, this is a joke, misprint or whatever.
  2. I knew about the away Greensboro game; I hope it is a good payout. I still don't understand that move. Maybe the UNC-G Spartans, or whatever their mascot is, are trying up their competition to advance? I don't know.
  3. Other than the above away games, much of the rest of the Out of Conference schedule (OOC) looks to be a survey of other in-state teams: Francis Marion, Presbyterian, Winthrop, SC, Furman, College of Charleston, and SC State. Wow. SEVEN in-state schools.
  4. The ACC component looks favorable, as this is our not Chapel Hill year, though we get Duke in Durham. The season-ending Wake game could be a trap. Also, other than the NCSU-GT stretch in January, 1/16-1/9, and the late February, 2/24-2/28, stretch against Maryland and FSU, the Tigers have no long periods away from Littlejohn.
Go Tigers!

I think Clemson-Duke as an ACC opener is a great way to open it up...for both teams. Duke gets to get that beatdown off their minds in game one...Clemson gets a chance to prove themselves early. It should be one of those classic ACC games(watch the clock operator!)
