I hear the ocean calling my name...
Days 'til Kickoff: 3
Days 'til I hit the beach: 1

Leaving tomorrow...so if I don't update, it's because my internet connection down there is nonexistent. I am taking my laptop, so I'll try and blog as much as I can while I'm enjoying the sun and the sand...and some coronas. I'm taking my dvd recorder with me, so I can record and watch the game again on Sunday night before I go to bed. I've got a REALLY good feeling about this game. Not sure why...but I do.

Doesn't it seem kinda like this whole Vic Koenning thing has been blown out of proportion? I guarantee there will be a mention of it on College Gameday on Saturday morning. It's turned into a much bigger story than it has to. He was just being a typical moron, saying things that only morons would say. We should just leave it at that. The game is much bigger than an off hand remark about what kids are driving. Of course, that's just one more team that we won't have to worry about recruiting in Mobile.

Coach Saban has a plan for Clemson's rushing attack. Although, I do want to mention this little bit of rushing stat information from last season:

vs Florida St - 132 yards rushing on 42 attempts
vs La-Monroe - 184 yards on 28 attempts
vs Furman - 60 yards on 33 attempts
vs NC State - 340 yards on 50 attempts
vs Ga Tech - 34 yards on 32 attempts
vs Va Tech - 8 yards on 23 attempts
vs Cent Mich - 341 yards on 61 attempts
vs Maryland - 249 yards on 56 attempts
vs Duke - 152 yards on 32 attempts
vs Wake Forest- 145 yards on 34 attempts
vs Bost Coll - 47 yards on 31 attempts
vs So Carolina- 214 yards on 46 attempts

That's 4 games last year where Clemson's team as a whole didn't rush for over 100 yards, including against Furman, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, and Boston College. Now, these teams didn't have absolutely incredible defenses. It is possible to stop this running back duo. You never saw a game where McFadden and Jones were held under 100...so this tandem isn't quite what those guys were. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Not only do we get a chance to beat Clemson on Saturday...we've got a chance to whip a Tennessee fan.
 

Comments: Correct me if I am wrong, because I am doing the same to you right now, but I think Auburn held McFaddden and Jones to under 50 yards last year.

My bad!
