CLEMSON – Best day of the year?

Boy, Day 1 of March Madness can’t be beat. Bowls on top of bowls on New Year’s Day sure hold its own – or, it would have if the Playoff games weren’t being held this year on Dec. 31 for some odd reason. There’s a certain allure to other opening days as well – MLB comes to mind, and so does that other football league, which kicks off itself in just eight days.

OK, today definitely top five. In this part of the country, maybe that previous sentence was a whole bunch of gobbledygook. Merry GameDaymas. it’s here, it’s here, hallelujah, college football is here.
