"The big thing for me is our secondary," Swinney said. "If I'm sitting in the stands, that's what I'm watching. There are a lot of question marks coming out of last season. "To be fair to those guys, we were very thin going into last season, and then we just get decimated by injuries. But compared to where we were at this time last year, we have nine new pieces - eight signees and Martin Jenkins, who was out all year. So we have nine new guys to work with, out of 15 on scholarship."

Clemson and Georgia have started talks that could result in the cancellation of the football series planned between the two schools for 2013 and 2014. UGA athletics director Greg McGarity confirmed the talks Tuesday, though there has been "no resolution or final determination yet," according to UGA. Talks were initiated by Clemson as a result of the ACC’s move earlier this year to expand to a nine-game conference schedule to accommodate 14 members in the league.

I promised my son a few years back that I would take him to his first road game at Clemson in 2013, when he will be ten. If I have to tell him we can't go, I'm going to be royally pissed off. Don't fail us, Greg McGarity. This sucks. Go 'Dawgs!

If the Dec. 30 Music City Bowl can pull it off, it can pair the Dawgs with the Clemson Tigers. As foreseen and hoped for by Dawg Sports about two weeks ago, the first-ever December matchup between the two old rivals could be in the works. They’ve played 62 times, but have only met off-and-on for the last couple decades. . . . To increase our chances of seeing this one, let’s root for the Maryland Terrapins. A strong finish by the Terps could lure the Meineke Car Care bowl to pick them over Clemson, leaving the Tigers to likely play Georgia.

There are two big questions (assuming the SEC follows suit after the conference expansion begins)...

There are two big questions (assuming the SEC follows suit after the conference expansion begins) for this board: A) Will Clemson get an invite to join the SEC? B) Will Clemson accept an invitation should it be given? I for one want to see Clemson in the SEC, and would openly applaud membership to this group. Had the ACC and Swoffy not sacked up a few weeks ago in contract negotiations, this one would be a slam dunk. As it sits now, we must get Jimmy Barker and crew on board with this concept. My current opinion of Barker aside, IF he allows Clemson to miss the opportunity to play Georgia on a yearly basis he will have officially lost ALL of my support. . . .

Assuming the SEC adds Texas A&M to the west, will Clemson be brought in from the east? I certainly hope so in my heart, but North Carolina or Virginia Tech would add more markets, and there's no reason to think this would be the one aspect of this whole process in which tradition trumped lucre. Go 'Dawgs!

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!
