Re: CAROLINA vs CLEMSON (Five Years Later)
I think it was inevitable that we passed Clemson. The SEC advantages (recruiting, facilities, coaching talent, and passion) just continue to give us an annual edge. We get to play huge games all year, while Clemson is stuck playing yawner games like Duke, Wake, or BC. The Clemson opponent fan bases are less vocal, smaller, and mostly distracted by other interests. The SEC fans are wilder and louder, and are exciting.
The best high school players naturally gravitate to the SEC. Thus, we are winning the SC recruiting year after year. Clemson's demise was inevitable.
