    LSU, sec team, I'd rather they become the top dog in the west instead of bama. I do think their great qb coach will stay at lsu for quite some time. They seem to have a good thing going, he's paid well, there seems to be more stability with lsu then going to a pro team, and some guys simply like the college game more and I think he is one of them. Plus how can you go wrong with cajun cooking?

    LSU.

    Clemson plays no one. If they win tonight, that won't matter for the next few seasons because they'll get the benefit of the doubt and a playoff spot by default. Better to have that weak ass schedule as an albatross around their neck with the committee. Even better if they lose convincingly.

    LSU. Clemson has had enough fun for awhile, IMO. Time for a new champion this year. And, LSU’s story is cool this year. Clemson has been so, well, uncharacteristically whiny. LSU

    LSU. Not a Dabo fan. I’m also happy to see another team besides Bama from the SEC in the NC game. I want to see the SEC close out the season as the top conference.

    SEC supremacy helps us. We probably don't get the Orange Bowl this year if the SEC wasn't thought of as highly.

    In my opinion, while a great coach, his "aw shucks, good ol boy" persona is a sham. The constant "poor us, no respect" laments, his denying KB a ring, and his "no cash for athletes" stance belie his bonhomie. So, yeah, I'd like to see him taken down a notch or 3.

    the evil empire (bama) must go down. If LSU can help with that, all the better. Geaux Tigers.

    Easy....LSU. We pull for nothing orange in this town. And Clemson is a traditional rival. And a current recruiting rival. And Ed Orgeron is good people.

    I care about the SEC. Unless they are playing us I don't mind if they win! Makes rivalries stronger, creates more hatred, conference gets stronger, and it gets the folks 'outta their chairs.

    I'm a SEC team player in that respect. If we can't beat Georgia, I don't care if they win out. If we can't beat LSU, I don't care if they win out. If we can't beat FSU, I hope they die a painful miserable death...:eek:

    Then the next time the stakes are higher...;)

    Go Gators. Beat everyone. :D

    LSU. Ogeron is a football guy. Dabo is a puss. I live amongst every bandwagon Clemson fan on the planet and their obnoxiousness exceeds f$u. It is to the point I will pull for f$u to beat Clemson next year.

    LSU. At least they have obstacles to move around in order to get here. The same can’t be said for Clemson. Tired of the easy path and Fla recruiting

    I'd prefer LSU since they poach fewer Florida players. We do play them every year, but we control that outcome more than we seem to be able to do in recruiting.

    If you're talking about Joe Brady, I don't know whether he prefers the college game or the NFL. He's younger than John Brantley IV, and isn't old enough to have been anywhere long enough.

    Are you talking Ensminger?

    Not really sure who I want to win. I'm looking at three different metrics, though, including EsPN FPI, that favor Clemson. FPI gives Clemson a 56% chance of winning. It looks like the prediction models are favoring the defensive team.
