CLEMSON — It’s not GameDay … but it’s gameday.

Since Dabo Swinney insists the Tigers play to a certain standard regardless of the opponent, and the Clemson fans have sold out Death Valley thus rooting to a certain standard, I will hold up my end of the bargain and write to a certain standard.

From your sweet sixteen options below, the blog barista recommends the Roderick McDowell and Stanton Seckinger pieces. Both guys really opened up about their road to this year, and those are the best types of stories.

If you’re into the juicy stuff, the Chad Morris and Mark Richt exchanges about faking injuries to slow the tempo is kind of interesting.
