    Someone help me out here.

    I despise the Bulldogs, despise them. However, I work with a bunch of FSU and scUM ACC "fans". I still have to listen to their delusions as to how the strength of the conferences are relatively even. A Clemson victory means I listen to it further. A UGA win means something positive happened to UGA, which is always unfortunate. A UGA win helps our strength of schedule (and perhaps hurts FSU's if that's an issue down the road). A Clemson win helps the world in that UGA lost.

    What's the consensus on which outcome a Gator should be rooting for?

    Neither. Pray that both teams look terrible, it ends in a tie, and the media declares it a loss for each of them.

    Strictly for selfish reasons, UGA. If they win our SOS goes up and if we beat UGA undefeated or at least highly ranked, our win looks better which means we look better to the computers and voters.

    UGA, because I don't think they're going to be a threat for the NC this year anyway.

    It's probably going to be an insanely high-scoring affair, though.

    Based on Helen Hunt's BS stunt to get a celebration penalty on 2007, I have a hell of a hard time rooting for the pr**k!!! Would love to see Clemson put up 300 yards on the ground on them.

    I'll let the ACC have their day with this one and let USCe give is bragging rights for the conference.

    I wouldn't be shocked at all to see this as a 42-38 type game.

    Always the SEC over the ACC -- to keep the Noles neutered.

    Go Clipson.

    If The Mutts would have beaten Bama I would have rooted for ND. Bama saved me from that and am no Bama fan.

    I will never root for the Mutts or FSU, never. Had the BASTIDS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If Clemson wins and then beats the Noles, they will run the table and be a threat for our NC spot.

    UGA. Every year we have to endure the clemson hype until they finally lose enough games that people will shut up about it... so whatever accelerates that process.

    Heck, that might be conservative. First one to 60 wins...

    I'll root for UGA to live up to Spurrier's expectations and rack up some suspensions in time for the South Carolina game. I do not care at all who wins the game.

    I will root for Georgia who I would rather see gang raped by forest animals so that they are presumably more nationally prominent when we play them furthering our clout if we beat them. No other interest in that school's success.

    Hope Clemson wins. They'll trip up at least once this year to some team in the ACC they have no business losing to anyway.

    We shouldnt have to rely on UGA winning to potentially improve our SOS - I'd rather we take care of business on the field ourselves.

    I'll be rooting for a sinkhole!

    Honestly though, I've gotta cheer for the SEC... That's just me...

    I'll pull for Clemson. Apparently the SEC can't get Clemson off of UGA's schedule so that the Mutts can have an even easier time getting through the season. So I'd like to see their season get off to a ruinous start, with more futile cries again for Helen Hunt's head.
