Tigers impressive in huge win over Georgia Tech

Wow. I can't believe this result. Clemson came out and dominated every facet of the game in a convincing 39-3 victory against Georgia Tech. I'll post more on Sunday. For tonight, I'll just enjoy this victory with a few cold Bass beers.


The lights are on, and football blogging is back!

Hurricane Isabel knocked the ol' Tigerpundit out of action for a couple of days, but he woke up on a beautiful Northern Virginia morning and behold! the lights were back on. I'll post a quick rundown of what's out there regarding today's crucial Georgia Tech game. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. There is no TV coverage. Go Tigers!

GAME PREVIEWS: The Greenville News says Clemson must avoid Georgia Tech's hidden defenses. There's also a game capsule. The State examines the Yellowjackets being motivated after preseason criticism, and offers up the usual items: the keys to victory, "the edge," and a story about how Clemson can stop running back P.J. Daniels. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Tony Barnhart breaks down the matchup (third item). The AJC also has a fan's guide to the game, and a preview story that focuses on special-team play.

OTHER STORIES: Georgia Tech would probably be Clemson's permanent rival in several ACC realignment scenarios, according to the Anderson Independent-Mail. The State has a Q&A with defensive end Khaleed Vaughn. This Greenville News notebook notes that Clemson's no-huddle offense could wear Georgia Tech out, because the Jackets have very little depth on defense. And there's also this story from Thursday about Clemson coach Tommy Bowden noting his team's progress from the season-opening debacle against Georgia.

AROUND THE ACC: Everybody else is playing a non-conference schedule. Meanwhile, here's a story about how the league, which entered 2003 with high hopes, has struggled this season. And here are notes and more notes.

AND FROM THE ENEMY CAMP: Here's a great blog about Georgia Tech sports. Anybody know of any other blogs about other ACC schools?
