Bowden Bowl IX on Labor Day

Florida State will visit Clemson on Monday night, Sept. 3, 2007, in the season opener for both schools. As an ACC fan, these Labor Day evening games are fantastic and offer the kind of exposure for the league that you really can't find outside of the annual conference title games.

As a Florida State fan, though, this sucks. It throws off the planning and practicing for the first two weeks of the season. On top of that, there's another game just 5 days later. Last year, the Noles almost lost to Troy five days after their Labor Day win at Miami. Thanks, but no thanks. Find some other sucker next year, ACC.

Sept. 3, 2007...The last of the interminable "Bowden Bowls"?

I'm excited for the match-up! Yeah it's another tough opener on the road, but these early-season contest always favor the defenses and Clemson's losing Gaines Adams and CJ Gaddis, while James Davis is finally going to meet Paul Griffin! Should be a tremendous game and great exposure for FSU.
