Ranking the Palmetto State Series

Five years ago, South Carolina and Clemson came together to make one of the best decisions in rivalry history. 

The Gamecocks and Tigers ditched the odd, four-game, home-and-home, scattered series in favor of a three-game series played at both home stadiums and one neutral site.

I Am a Media Member, Not a Fan

In case you missed it, two writers who run Texas and Texas A&M websites got into a Twitter war on Monday.
