the ACC championship between Miami and Clemson should be a great game. I’m looking forward to that game. Its like a playoff game into the final four. . If Clemson wins they are definitely in. I wonder if Miami with one lost [to Clemson ] could still be invited? It is possible . They sure aught to make it before a two loss Awbarn! When they play Alabama I’m actually a Bama fan. Only time I am but Let just say Awbarn ain’t one of my favorites! I hope after Alabama they will be a three loss team. My team Clemson can’t afford to lose again or Orange Bowl here we come!
