SportsTalk was busy tonight with Clemson and Auburn preparing to do battle. Greg Roberts gave us his picks. USC and Furman renew their rivalry and recruiting news, as always.
- Prognosticator Extraordinaire Greg Roberts led off tonight and gave his picks against the odds-makers…of course, it’s all in fun.
- Ellis Johnson met with the media tonight after practice in lieu of Steve Spurrier, as the head ball caoch made his way over to his call-in show. Johnson talked about his defense and how well they are playing.
- Charlie Bennett is an Auburn football beat writer for The Anniston Star and, earlier today, he spoke to Phil on SportsTalk: First Edition about the Clemson/Auburn game from an Auburn perspective.
- Marcus Lattimore is having a difficult time living down his huge performance last Saturday. During their weekly press conference, Lattimore met with the media and showed that he appears to be well-grounded.
- Clemson LB Brandon Maye returns to the playing field this Saturday after sitting out the first two games with an injury. Maye is also returning to Jordan-Hare Stadium where he spent many Saturdays as a fan.
