Yeah, yeah, Alabama is in the SEC. Tennessee is in the SEC. The SEC is the greatest conference of all.

But Clemson is a scrappy, pretty great team who almost beat Alabama last year for the championship. They have a good coach, who is actually from Alabama and played at Alabama (unlike Nick Saban). Revenge is a dish best served cold. Except it's not very cold in Tampa.

Anyway, as seen on the Vol chat boards: "My favorite team? Tennessee. My second favorite team? Whoever is playing Alabama."

So there you go.

Pulling for Clemson

Our boys were born right down the road from Clemson and my oldest graduated from there even though we moved to TN when he was four. His roommate was the Tiger mascot. I have a Clemson orange shirt and Clemson bleu cheese is the best ever.

Danged right I'm pulling for Clemson!

That said, I wouldn't bet money either way unless I was planning to throw it away.

Another good reason. Agree on not betting. Should be a good, close game.
