BTW, props to ESPN/ABC for not lumping UA/VT, UGA-Clemson and LSU-TCU together in primetime.
is it Aug 31 yet?
Going to be a great kickoff weekend. The Ole Miss-Vandy game easily most underrated matchup of the week. HUGE for both teams.
No doubt, I've had that one circled for a while.
Ditto, I always hated that. Seems like it would hurt their ratings some too?
You would think. Really interested in seeing UGA-Clemson, so it works out pretty well.

Any chance we can move this game up some?? Like to May?? I dont think I am going to survive 160+ days of this "waiting crap"....
Didn't know we were playing WV in '14. Looking forward to Saban mud stomping his home state school.
