CLEMSON, S.C. -- Matt Ryan just has that aura about him. Unfortunately for Clemson, so do the Tigers.
Give Ryan a few minutes on the clock, a field to drive and the game on the line -- and there's nobody better in college football.
Give Clemson a clear path to the ACC championship game, a home crowd rocking at the decibel level of an AC/DC concert and a chance to finally break through under Tommy Bowden -- and it's the same ol' Tigers.

So I went down to Clemson for the Wake Forest game and had the time of my life. I hung out with people that I haven't seen in about 2 years and it felt like none of us ever left. It's sooo wonderful to feel that comfortable with a group of people.
I had started wondering if I am too obsessed with Clemson football....but then I realized this weekend that it has little to do with the actual team (gasp!). Don't get me wrong- I really do love college football... I love the stats and the dirty politics... I love watching the head on collisions when the crowd cringes all at once...I love screaming at the refs...
But the best part is feeling a part of a family. It's so great to just look at one of your friends right after a big play or a bad call and know exactly what the other person is thinking. Or getting random text messages during the game from someone sitting 5 rows down...
Clemson will always have a huge chunk of my heart.. but only for the 20 or so people that I hold so dear. The rest of the school and students I could care less about. But being able to crowd into a small (college-like) apartment 45 mins outside of Clemson and watch your rival team get killed by Florida with 15 of your favorites is not going to be matched by many other life experiences.
So, this weekend I get to do it all over again at the BC game!! I couldn't be happier. If Clemson goes to the ACC championship game this year I'll have to do something obsurd. Must think of something over the next 4 days...
Until then, Go Tigers!!

"South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier led Florida to the 1996 national championship and won six SEC titles as coach of his alma mater. This season, Spurrier sits in the captain's chair of one of the worst collapses in recent SEC history.

I'm redoing the ACC roster. The current one sucks. Here goes:
The North Carolina schools should officially focus on basketball. They will never ever be at top 10 level so they should just stop trying. We will take West Virginia and Rutgers to take the place of Duke and UNC. We will let Wake Forest stay for now.. but if they're not at a consistent top 25 level by 2009 we're going to bump them for Vandy. I'll give Vandy a decent shot on this one.
We're going to trade Florida State for South Florida. This may be a mistake, but South Florida has the momentum at the moment and this roster reflects the "cinderella conference". I think that could go over well.
Is there any way we could get away with stealing Oregon too? We can just call them the "Other Coastal Conference section of the ACC". We'll take them in Miami's place.
So here it is:
Virginia (I'll be bias this time)
This morning I went hiking with about 15 mormon friends of my class-mate, Bartley! It was kind of random but a really great time! Hopefully fall will stick around a little longer but I have a feeling this might be it. Hope you all enjoy!
Peter look! It's my new Mormon friend, Peter! You will never be replaced, though. Impossible :)
Check out the northwest corner to see humpback rocks. Good times!
