    Seems like I oughta start this thread...not very familiar with either squad,but they have a lot to live up to after the other BCS bowls coming down to the wire

    Dabo Sweeney kinda looks like Howard Dean

    They just said that Ellington is 1 of 7 players for Clemson that has a play of 50 or more yards this season.

    Dabo shows why recruiting is so important in college football.

    I remember when the orange bowl actually meant something.

    Good game though.

    There's a football game on? I am not in the know. These games belong on New Years day. I will not watch until then. I have sh*t to do. Just doing my part to keep ratings down.

    Clemson should win this, but as we've seen early, it could be another fun shootout. Clemson is somewhat inconsistent, but when they're firing on all cylinders they are fun to watch -- i.e. when they beat leaving snot out of Virginia Tech twice this year.

    Would you want to play a game in the old orange bowl. The place became a dump over the last few years and the neighborhood wasn't exactly the kind of place you wanted to be celebrating a bowl game.

    Don't know what kind of neighborhood this stadium is in but the probability is that it is much better than the old one and the stadium has to be a much better experience.

    This stadium is in a much better part of town...they leveled the old Orange Bowl and built a new stadium for the Marlins there,the old OB was a terrible dump.A lot of history in there though,Super Bowls and college games.

    Miami getting punked 48-0 in their final game at the old Orange Bowl in '07 was classic

    'Eers take the lead, 21-17

    Huge swing, great play by the WVU player. Shock on the part of Clemson.

    WVU keeps on pouring it on. Helped by the face mask but Clemson has no answer for WVU speed on offense.

    Is WVU that fast or is Clemson slow? Think its the first one.

    14-point swing on that one play. And WV just finished off another drive for a TD, Clemson can't stop them.

    If WVU scores a TD here it may be over with. Clemson can't stop them and a 22 point lead would be huge.

    1st and goal at the one now.

    That turnaround just killed Clemson. Just aren't going to win games allowing 42 points in the first half. Ouch.

    This is fricking embarrassing defense Clemson. Either Greg Brown clone is their DC or the Clemson partied all week on South Beach

    Clemson's defense has been gashed in a few games this season

    May not give it to them out of sympathy but that was another fumble.

    If WVU gets it and scores here it's garbage time the rest of the way.

    Epic meltdown. Just wow. More embarrassment for the ACC in BCS games, go figure.
