The campuses are less than two hours apart, they've been playing each other since fans rode mules to the game and, as Georgia blogger T. Kyle King is quick to point out, there are older Bulldog fans who still count Clemson as their most hated rival almost two decades after the game ceased to be an annual affair. The Tigers and Bulldogs played 29 times in 34 years from 1962-95, when conference expansion began to put a crimp on marquee non-conference games. They have staged one home-and-home since, in 2002-03. The rivalry hit its height in the early '80s, when both teams won national championships (Georgia in 1980, Clemson in '81) and went 59-4-1 against the rest of the country from 1981-83. The series will renew, briefly, in 2013-14. And if all else fails, they can always get together for what promises to be a nice, leisurely spring game.

Dr. Saturday explains why Georgia and Clemson need to renew hostilities on the football field. (I need to remember to ask Matt Hinton to write me a jacket blurb when the time comes!) Go 'Dawgs!
