47 Days Left Until Georgia Versus Clemson

College Football is Less Than Seven Weeks Away
The countdown to one of the most highly anticipated college football campaigns in recent memory is on. The Georgia Bulldogs will travel to South Carolina to square off with the Clemson Tigers in an ACC versus SEC showdown on August 31.  Anticipation for the season opener has grown since the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins feels his Tigers will “beat the mess” out of Georgia.sammy_watkins_clemson
The Trash Talk Will be Settled on the Field

I am not going to offer a rebuttal to what Sammy Watkins said. On the contrary, I love it.  As a result of this bulletin board material, Bulldog Nation will be chomping at the bit to get a paw on Watkins and company come the final night in August. Sammy Watkins may want to avoid going over the middle, though, as Georgia may try to knock the mess out of him.

Georgia-Clemson is Most Expensive Ticket on Opening Weekend
According to Tiger Net, the clash between the Dawgs and the Tigers is currently the highest priced ticket of any game on the opening weekend of the 2013 college football season. While it is a non-conference game, it is still a pivotal match-up for two teams that both have championship aspirations.

Listening to Dabo Swinney Overreact is the Worst Part of Clemson Victories
My co-author Barrie constantly reminds me that I need to be emotionally prepared for the fact that Georgia could start the season 0-1.  I accept the fact that Clemson is capable of beating Georgia, but I loathe the idea of hearing the Tigers’ head coach Dabo Swinney crow after the fact. This is a man that cried after Clemson beat Auburn in 2011. What is he going to do if the Tigers defeat the Bulldogs? Week one of college football cannot get here soon enough.

Is his Name Really Dabo?

For those wondering, thank goodness coach Swinney’s name is not actually “Dabo.”  His birth name is William Christopher Swinney.  During the video below, the Clemson head  coach says the Tigers are a national championship team after they won the Chic-Fil-A Bowl.  Here’s hoping the Georgia Bulldogs give “Dabo” a reality check in Death Valley.
