each year. That game is very important to us and it's one of the best rivalries in our conference. Every year, it's at a different date. Some year's it's November. In other years it's in October. Still, in others it's in early September. I like how the SEC sets up certain weeks for certain games and holds to that through the years. I wish we could do the same. Personally, I'd prefer to play Clemson earlier in the season...like during the first 2 weeks. That would give us a big traditional rival game early and it would help give us a quick ACC barometer. The Clemson game often gives us a good read on our team...that's why I'd prefer it early. We have to win this game to have a shot at a halfway decent season. If we lose this game, I'm afraid we might end up worse than 6-5.
