Clemson University’s 2013 season opener against the University of Georgia is one of the biggest games in the history of the program. Both the Tigers and Bulldogs are ranked in the Top Ten, both offenses are led by Heisman Trophy candidates (Tajh Boyd and Aaron Murray), ABC is televising the game nationally and ESPN is bringing its College Gameday crew to Tigertown for the occasion.

Also it’s the first meeting between the two rivals in a decade …

How big a game is this? We’re lifelong fans of Clemson’s arch-rival, the University of South Carolina, and we’re still pumped.

Wanna know everything there is to know about the big game?

Clemson University’s media relations office has just released its preliminary notes from the game … which is loaded with all sorts of interesting information about this rivalry and the players participating in Saturday’s contest.

For example … which quarterback has posted the better record for his team over the last two seasons? What’s Clemson’s record in recent season-openers? And how have the Tigers fared when they open their season against ranked opponents?

If TBG recalls correctly, for three years running (’80,’81,’82) the winner of the Clemson/Georgia game went on to play in the National Championship game.

Frank Howard August 23, 2013 at 9:04 am

TBG, you are correct. Georgia beat the Tigers but lost the ’82 title game to Penn State.

Just for you, Tonto, to start your week—–

1) Once an Indian girl did a rain dance – naked. She made the Creeks rise.

2) It was at the peaceful bend of the Little Bighorn. From across the river can be heard the constant beat of Indian drums. General Custer says to an aide, “I don’t like the sound of those drums.”
From the Indian side of the river, an Indian yells, “He’s not our regular drummer!”

TontoBubbaGoldstein August 25, 2013 at 8:53 pm

Most folks are unaware of it, but the old saying, “God willing and the Creek don’t rise…” is in reference to the Creek tribe…

As a Clemson alum and fan, I hate to say it but this will be a beatdown at the hands of the leghumpers. Just like the phrase “Columbia Sucks”, the phrase “pulling a Clemson” didn’t come out of nowhere. There is usually a truth to stereotypes.
And with a loss to the mouth breathers, Clemson’s season is basically over. Sure..we have the ACC championship to look forward to (its almost hard for me to keep a straight face while I type that), any hope of national prominence once again alludes us.
Add to that another probable mauling by the cocks later this year, and hopefully Dabo and his cheerleading corps (and finally..hopefully..eventually BRAD SCOTT, too) will be looking for a gig somewhere else in 6 months….
But don’t get so far ahead of yourselves cock lovers..I don’t look for you to do anything better than 9-3. My prediction is Spurrier has a heart attack while throwing his visor on the ground after Clowney gets busted for smoking weed the night before the cocks 5th showing at “The Outback Bowl”.

Norma SUcks August 23, 2013 at 4:36 pm

I think it was Smoking Sammy Potkins and the weed you must have been talking about, before the tallest midget contest that is. But watch out because for the 5th straight year you will lose to the better team in your own state. Oh yeah, you better put those lifts in those shoes. Miami will be better this year if you face them in the final game, unless of course you stumble as usual and lose to FSU and another too. 8-4 and no ACC championship is my guess. Sorry tater fan, but you will be disappointed even if you are hoping for that pop warner title.

Norma Scok August 24, 2013 at 12:11 am

What the fuck is a “tater”? Lifts in my shoes? WTH does that mean? Are you drunk? You sound drunk.

And 5 straight huh? Great! Only 23 more consecutive wins by the dicks and the series will be even. Awesome. Spurrier will be,..91. Good lukc with that. One thing I do know, that the series won;t be even in my lifetime.

And I could give the first shit about the ACC or its title. If we can’t beat some quality opponents (Ga, FSU) then i could give a fuck what happens. Dabo et al need to pack their bags. As for UCS, who gives a shit. Lose or not, its still in a shithole. Sadly, UCS is the best part of Columbia. 5

Norma SUcks August 24, 2013 at 10:58 am

Who sounds drunk here? “UCS”, “Dabo et al”, “good lukc”? So the real question is are you drunk , high, or just a dumb tater? Clemson can keep on living in the past because you have no future. Who gives a shit about 50 years ago, or 30 or hell 15? Right now and in the for seeable future USC is the better team, and you know it! The best part about Clemson is, well nothing. Its a dump in the middle of no where. If it weren’t for the cows in the pastures the guys up there wouldn’t even get a date on Friday night. Ole Besse and the other bovines are hotter than the those land whales that are the female students there. The ones that have all their teeth are at least smart enough to leave after spending the 4 years (im sure for most its ore than that) there because there isn’t shit there. So keep telling your self that bull shit to help you get through the day. LMFAO!!!

TontoBubbaGoldstein August 24, 2013 at 2:57 pm

Ole Besse

Her name is Bessie, Dammit.


Norma Scok August 24, 2013 at 10:14 pm

Still don’t know what a “tater” is, or why you are referring to me as one. I doubt you do either. If you had to, could you even find USC in Columbia? Doubtful. I’m betting you never darkened a doorstep there.
And if I’m “living in the past”, then who gives a shit about 4 years ago..or last year? You cocks only like to talk about history when its convenient; namely the last 4 years.

And I’d live in that “dump in the middle of nowhere” (except its really a pristine campus on a beautiful lake) for the “for seeable” future over ever living in a shithole in the middle of shithole any day. I’ve never tripped over a railroad track, busted old pallet, nor been hit by a bum for money going to game at Death Valley. I can’t say the same about the dead cockroach in Columbia. Columbia is a human sewer. All the problems of big city with none of the good stuff. Gangs? Check. Weekly murders? check . But “(im sure for most its ore than that)”. Drug infested shithole? Double check. Enjoy living there–make sure your kids are packing at least a .45. They may need it in 5 points.

Norma SUcks August 25, 2013 at 10:46 am

your a fucking idiot. you can tell by your fancy little screen name that seems to be a play on words to hide your small one.

Norma Scok August 26, 2013 at 10:17 am

Now thats the intelligent come back I was looking for! At least you correctly spelled “fucking”.

Norma SUcks August 26, 2013 at 6:31 pm

Read above Tater.

Norma Scok August 26, 2013 at 10:34 pm

WTF is a “tater”? Is that supposed to be derogatory? I don’t even know what it means.

Norma Scok August 26, 2013 at 10:55 pm

And you had to copy it. Turd.

Clemson aint that great August 25, 2013 at 1:16 pm

“All the problems of big city with none of the good stuff. Gangs? Check. Weekly murders? check . But “(im sure for most its ore than that)”. Drug infested shithole? Double check. Enjoy living there–make sure your kids are packing at least a .45. They may need it in 5 points.”
I guess you forgot about woman beating and things like thats. oh wait that’s on CU’s campus by its players.

Norma Scok August 26, 2013 at 10:20 am

Yep..its a weekly occurence, right? Kinda like laptops being stolen from Willy B, quarterbacks keying cars and setting off fire extinguishers, and being suspended not 3, not 4 but FIVE times from the team?
Oh wait..we were talking about crime in the shithole of Columbia, not at UCS, right?

Have you ever been to Columbia August 26, 2013 at 12:28 pm

You have no clue about anything do you? Have you ever really been to Columbia? Have you seen the architecture in some of the buildings downtown? The new NBSC building, the Barringer building, The Capital Center? Have you seen the museum downtown? Ed-Venture across the river? next to yet another museum? Riverbanks Zoo? Have you gone to the The Soda City Market? The Greek Festival? Have you gone into the Shandon neighborhood, Heathwood, Spring Valley, Forest Acres, North East, behind the VA? Or are you just a moron that writes only want he reads about with out ever seeing the real stuff a city has? If you have done any of what I just mentioned, plus a bunch more, you would know that the real Columbia is 100 times the place that cow dung filled pasture known as Clemson is. Its like Greeneville’s Gilbert but has a college added in. That’s it. There is no other reason to go there. I hate to say it but I agree with the guy that can’t seem to spell in that If you write a reference to a big penis as your screen name tries to suggest you have, then you either 10 years old, or you are over compensating for being one of the contestants on Howard Sterns smallest penis contest you can hear on Sirius radio. Norma Scok? Really? And you think someone would take you seriously? Norma Scok, how your mother must be so proud.

Have you ever been to Columbia August 26, 2013 at 12:36 pm

*are either

Norma SUcks August 26, 2013 at 6:30 pm

I don’t need you to help here. Yes I can spell. I talked to text from a cell phone. Wow, it picked up the wrong “You’re/your”, Oh the humanity! The dumbass Norma must not own a cell if he cant understand that. With that said to quote Bill Murray from Ghostbusters. “Yes its true, this man has no dick”. Also funny props on the Greenville’s Gilbert comment. That shit was funny.

Norma Scok August 26, 2013 at 10:33 pm

I don’t give the first shit why you can’t type; Get a better phone. You busted my balls about transposing “k” and “c” in luck, douchebag. You fuck up entire sentences and I’m supposed to just let it go…yeah..right.

Norma SUcks August 27, 2013 at 10:15 am

Actually you dumb fuck, I was pointing out you correcting my mistypes by pointing out yours in the reply to mine. This all started with the “Are you drunk” comment or did you forget? You Taters are fucking retarted. If you don’t know what it means I don’t give a flying fuck. It isn’t hard for you to find out if you need to, and I am sure you know what it means anyway but again I don’t give a shit. Also, I notice in your reply to the other guy above about Two Notch and 5 points that you want to pick on. You must be a racist. Pick the only minority dominated parts of town to talk shit about two notch has some slums and 5 points is 4 blocks away from Benedict College and Allen University. I hate to break it to you princess, but I have been to your precious Clemson (or to steal one from the other poster “Greenville’s Gilbert”) and stopped in at Tiger Town. There were a lot of those kids coming out of the bathrooms sniffing loudly, rubbing their noses, and seeming all “jacked up”. They were white kids too. I am sure you must have bumped it up a few times too in that 5 star resort the Esso club or TD’s Sports Bar huh? A childish screen name like yours it would seem that way, Actually it kind of makes me understand why you have it now. You must have had to suck a few “Norma Scoks” to pay for your blow. Fact is every place has good and bad areas, but you are the only one who went all racist about pointing it out. Typical Tater.

Norma Scok August 27, 2013 at 10:45 pm

You have a bad attitude and talk way too much. You seem like you’d be a huge bore in real life.

Norma SUcks August 28, 2013 at 10:10 am

Hey, its the racist Tater with the little penis. what’s up ? you going to the Klan bake next weekend up there in Greenville’s Gilbert? I heard they aren’t to big on those that suck “Norma Scoks” like you do, so I would stay in the closet or them boys might hurt you.

Norma Scok August 28, 2013 at 10:10 pm

You have a racist and homerotic fixation problem.

Norma Scok August 27, 2013 at 10:49 pm

Oh called me a racist, too, for no apparent reason. How…original. Are you Jesse Jackson, or Al Sharpton?

Norma Scok August 26, 2013 at 10:28 pm

Lived in that shithole for 4 years. There ain’t enough money to ever make me go back.

The Zoo? How many times can you do that? The Capital Center? Architecture in the building the Affinity building (or whatever it is now) and the NBSC bank building? Lovely. You can see the confederate flag from there! How about beautiful Two Notch road and the “culturally awakening” 5 points? That whole friggin’ town sucks. The best part about it is that its 2 hours from some really cool places. That..and leaving it.

Have you ever been to Columbia August 27, 2013 at 1:52 pm

“You can see the confederate flag from there!” You must be speaking about on the State House grounds. Again that’s the STATE House grounds. The STATE House grounds have nothing to do with the city itself. It might be in the city, but that is a STATE building. By definition Greenville’s Gilbert has just as much to do with that building or monument as Columbia does, so you have just as much to do with that monument as the people from Columbia you put down because of it. I thought you were smart enough to know that, but it seems you are not. As far as the zoo question, I have a membership and take my children there at least once a month. Its a top 7 nationally recognized zoo. Face it, there is more to see in Columbia than Clemson any day, and the best part is like you said, you aren’t here. I think we all can say that’s a good thing. Next time you look through the magnifying glass to make that pimple on you midsection appear bigger, I hope you know we all here are happy as hell someone of your little character, lack of intelligence, and childish attitude isn’t anywhere near our fair city. I think I speak for all of us in Columbia when I say “To hell with you and the horse you rode in on”. This is where I leave you now.

Norma Scok August 27, 2013 at 10:43 pm

You go to the zoo 12 times a year? Good lord your life must be boring. Thats like bragging about going to McDonalds playland 12 times a year.

Columbia sucks, and theres not much you or anyone can say that will change the minds of everyone who has been unlucky enough to have to spend any time in that shithole. Its full of crime, drugs and politicians-which may or may not all be in the same place at the same time.

You enjoy it there; there’s no rush for anyone from Clemson, Greenville or Charleston to make a move there.

Have you ever been to Columbia August 28, 2013 at 3:48 pm

Did you just compare Clemson to Greenville or Charleston? You put them together so I think you must have. The only thing it shares with Charleston is the 1st letter in its name. As for Greenville that’s like saying Pelion is like Columbia. Clemson is and will only ever be Greenville’s Gilbert.

Norma Scok August 28, 2013 at 10:09 pm

No, I didn’t compare any of those cities to Clemson. I said noone from those cities was in a hurry to move to Columbia. Reading comprehension much?

In other hilarious news..I see Columbia is migrating their (apparently very large) homeless population to the outskirts for their enjoyment.

Remember that part about having all the bad stuff big city but none of the good? Yeah…

Scooter September 1, 2013 at 12:36 am

Architecture? They will used one style and then build the building next to it with a different style. You would think that all of them are drunk.

Squishy123 August 24, 2013 at 1:01 pm

So who will dirt peckers be pulling for in this game? Their in-state rival or the team that will keep them from the SEC title game?

Dabo is Spurrier's Bitch August 24, 2013 at 1:40 pm

Squishy wish not Worth a Pissy worried about which team the Gamecocks will picky.

lawzoo August 24, 2013 at 1:50 pm

This is a good example of why the ACC and cLIMPson are not even close to the top.
Playing an SEC team in the first game of the year will get the Game Day crew there (if they can remember how to get there) and memories of 30+ years ago will be bounced around ad nauseum. An unusually fun day in TigerVille.

Next week Carolina will go to Athens and ’em dawgs will try and break a 3 game losing streak having lost to The ‘Cocks 35-7 …Last year !

Just another important game on Carolina’s schedule.

Squishy123 August 24, 2013 at 5:48 pm

Isn’t it funny how just a handful of years ago the Dirt Peckers were a consistent 3rd place team in the SEC East and in the bottom half overall. Three or four good seasons and they’re walking around like they own college football. Give them one or two early losses and we’ll see the bandwagon fans they are, they’ll be calling for Spurrier’s head, telling Clowney to focus on the NFL, bitching about quarterbacks, half the stadium will continue to leave at halftime, etc…

lawzoo August 25, 2013 at 11:47 am

Also funny how my comments are real while yours are wishful thinking.

Squishy123 August 25, 2013 at 4:23 pm

Let’s just call it foresight.

Squishy is my bitch August 25, 2013 at 5:21 pm

Squishy Wishy not worth a Pissy without a life of his own ranting one of his hissy’s but his foresight is a missy.

Scooter September 1, 2013 at 12:32 am

Aren’t you cute? Have a bad week, loser.

cockythumbring August 26, 2013 at 9:51 pm

Good thing losing to such a bottom-half team four years in a row doesn’t bother Clemson. Most National Championship caliber teams with a rich history and annual recognition would be humiliated. Not Clemson, they don’t let it get to them one bit. Now that’s character.

Scooter September 1, 2013 at 4:34 pm

Haha. real smart one.

UGAalumni August 26, 2013 at 6:07 am

With ESPN’s Gameday in town, home field advantage in death valley, and UGA’S propensity to lay an egg early in the season, I don’t see the Dawgs coming out of this with a victory. We’re looking ahead to the dirt pecker game, too. The penuses will be dealing with a bunch of mad Dawgs after the Clempsun loss.

Norma Scok August 26, 2013 at 10:56 pm

Not a chance in hell, unfortunately. I’m just hoping the dawgs pummel the cocks the week after.

Scooter September 1, 2013 at 12:40 am

Stomp the hell out of them!
