BC-Clemson lovefest continues

If you haven't seen it, Sandon Herzlich wrote a thank you letter to the Clemson fans. It is well worth the read. Let me echo his statement that the Clemson fans are the best in the ACC.


With our ND series set to go on hiatus, I strongly encourage all current and future BC students to turn Clemson into the away game destination. It is an easier trip to make, has a better tailgate environment, and in my opinion is a more exciting stadium experience.


I never would have anticipated the benefit of being in the same division as Clemson, but it has been one of the best parts of joining the ACC.

Can you explain the if you're going to be a bear - be a grizzly comment?

Strange --

I was seeing Wake -2 before, now I see BC -1. Did Vegas find out we found something in film study?

The line opened at +2.5 and seems to have moved to -1 for BC. The McLaughlin effect?

Also two Wake players are likely out on offense. A RB and their TE. Could also explain a bit of the movement.

agree. Clemson fans have been by far the best fans I have ever had the honor of meeting.I went to to the first BC/Clemson game at Clemson..and wow. The folks were just plain great. A far cry from WVU, UCONN, ND, Rutgers fans!!!! Great to be in the ACC

Want to echo the lovefest comments. I definitely root for Clemson every week we're not playing them. The fans are absolutely the nicest people I've ever met. I wonder what its like to go to Clemson. I'll bet everyone says hi to strangers, holds doors open even longer at BC, and has group hugs after every exam. What a great place.

I think Vegas knows BC has their backs against the wall at home. No good team wants to start off 0-2 in conference, so they tend to battle extra hard to get the first victory.

I really don't think McLaughlin will be much of a factor. He cannot possibly be at 100% and the young backers have been playing pretty darn good n his absence. Still, I will be pumped to see him back on the field as he is one of my favorite BC players.

Went to Clemson my freshman year for spring training with the BC Crew team and loved it ever since. Definitely have to agree that when we're not playing for, they're the team I pull for in the ACC. This year was my first year making it to an away game at Clemson and, despite the game, it was great. The people there are so nice and like Mr. Herzlich said they understand the difference between an opponent and an enemy. Great fans and a great all around experience.

Brian--

This is the strangest line move I have seen in a while

Opened at BC -1.5
Went to Wake -2
Now it's back to BC -1.5

Coach Spaz and his staff are still waffling at QB, it seems.
