Default USC v clemson spread

I was listening to 104.9 this morning, and they (I believe it was Plyler) said the line opened at USC -5. I didn't know they released an opening line this early and can't seem to find it anywhere.

If it is -5, please discuss. If not, what do you think the line will be?

Don't hate, I wouldn't be surprised to see Clempson -3.5 to -7.

They were saying that (wherever they were getting there info) it was saying that clemson would be a -1 to -2 favorite on a neutral field but that it was USC -5 because of how huge of a homefield advantage WB brings (ie the fans, home win streak, shaw undefeated at home...).

i have heard others with a reputation for being in the know quote future lines on games a week or more ahead and wind up being pretty close. no clue where they get this info from though. Me and a buddy at work both speculated recently about the opening line for this game and we both said we thought it would open at USC -4 or -5. Seems about right to me being at home.

hasn't clemson been favored every game during our 4 game streak with the exception of 2010? I believe so by about a field goal each game. Unless something major happens this weekend no way can i see them being favored this time.

Do we have a home field advantage against the taters like we do against other teams? Think about it, most teams bring 5,000-10,000 fans. I promise you there will be at least 15,000 tater hicks scattered throughout WB. Always is. There might be more this year! I sat in The Zone 2 years ago and I'm not kidding when I say I was SHOCKED by how many Clemson fans there were over there. I had two come plop down right beside us!

it is an advantage for us make no mistake about it. will there be more clemson fans there than some other away teams? most likely, but WB is still a big advantage for us in this game. Maybe a bigger advantage in this game even b/c other SEC teams that play us there are used to those environments. Clemson is not.

Believe me...we will still have a home field advantage against them. UGA brings a TON of fans also...yet the Brice was rocking last year when we played them. It won't be any different for Clemson this year. It's going to be fun.

Many fans (on both sides) have both IPTAY and GCC memberships just to be guaranteed tickets to this game each and every year.

down here in trampa bay the pov is more neutral and sort of cut and dried. Cu d isn't real good, especially on the back end thus to win they must eccencially score us out of our game.
Tb hits his elite recievers in space both beating us for big yards/points there and forcing us to apply extra resources to slow them thus opening opportunities for down field throws and the running game. to do this they must be able to give tb reasonble protection and they need some moments on O that take the winds out of our fans sails so the noise doesn't affect communication so badly.
on D they need to stay basic and contain us requiring us to execute long sustained drives that allow us to self destruct due to impatience and even when we don't self destruct and we roll it should take us longer to score typically they it does them if they r rolling.

IMHO
