    LSU.

    At the end of the day, my loyalty will almost always go with the SEC when playing out of conference. It helps the whole SEC -- and the fact most of our fans root for each other's teams against outside competition is one of the things that helps make the SEC different. (For the record, there are some circumstances when I will root against the SEC --- like right now against Georgia because we need them to continue to be knocked down. But that is the exception for me.)

    I'm pulling for LSU.....

    1; They actually proved themselves this season, playing a real schedule, as opposed to Clemson

    2; Let 'em have their time in the spotlight.....it's only going to be for this one season, with the depeature of Burrow

    3; I eagerly anticipate listening to Orgeron's post-game presser.....I can just hear it now.....

    Only because I want to see Coach O win one and only one national championship. After that I hope they never win another game

    Clemson, the only SEC team I want to see be successful is Florida, the rest of the conference are cheats and scum.

    Also, Clemson wears Orange and Orange rocks.

    LSU. Too many FSU people at work riding the Clemson success wave these past few years.

    "Facts"? It's a frivolous "who ya rootin' for" thread. There are no objective facts to parse.

    But really, Geaux Tigers

    Except for Aleva who is the epitome of all I detest in college athletics, I've always liked LSU. It's harder since we play em every year, but since I don't hate an every year game rival, that must say something good about the cajuns. Unlike UgA and F$U who I do hate. So I'm pulling for LSU but I think Trevor Lawrence is a extreme talent at QB

    Umm, right. I said why I liked Clemson and you posted a meme mocking it.
    You didn't need to, but you did. You could have let it go, but you chose not to. So I called you on it.

    You could have said why you thought I was wrong- maybe you wanted those QBs to go to UGA. IDK.
    So I was trying to get you to explain why you posted what you did.

    Bro, you started the post stating you were going against the grain of the prior posts and I riffed off it. Apologies, not my intent to trigger the Clemson fans on the board with the levity.

    But seriously, Geaux Tigers.

    Clemson is my #2 team (daughter is a Clemson grad) and I don't apologize for it. Dabo built a sustainable program to be competitive with great F$U and USCe teams. Did anyone in 2013 expect USCe to crash and burn in 2015 and F$U a few years later?

    I just think the losing QB should have to shave their head.

    LSU is my (far distant) second-favorite SEC team. And I root for SEC unless it's Georgia. And UF will add "lost to national champion ..." to the script for 2019.

    If Clemson plays with passion and does the scrappy underdog bit, I might flip during the game. Because I don't really care -- but do expect to see a good game.

    Go Gators.

    Easy for me, GEAUX CLEMSON. Living in the New Detroit (oops, sorry meant New Orleans, Freudian slip there) area, and having to deal with the LSU faithful regularly, you could not pay me to root for L$U. And I could care less about SEC "brotherhood". Those scumbags would not be in our corner.

    Clemson steals too many damn recruits out of FL

    Toppling them down would mean well for us who are on the upswing

    I dislike LSU too, but Clemson needs to start losing

    How do you reconcile how “great” of a man he is with the evidence that his program is juicing young men, whether the athletes know it or not? Are you swallowing his “Gee, golly, gosh darn, I guess three of my players popped positive for PEDs because of something someone accidentally put in the pool”?

    Spare me.

    I can’t stand Saban either, but at least he doesn’t pretend he isn’t a utilitarian, cutthroat, win-at-all-costs a—hole. There’s a word for people who put an “all glory to God” face on, while they sharpen their knives in the dark for every unethical advantage. You want to say Dabo is a great coach, fine. Just don’t try to tell me he’s a great man.
