SCETV DOCUMENTARY TO EXPLORE SOUTHEAST’S MOST INTENSE FOOTBALL RIVALRY
FITSNews – August 29, 2007 – With college football season finally upon us, we figured now was as good a time as any to preview an upcoming SCETV documentary about the South Carolina-Clemson football rivalry that has us especially excited. Entitled “Just A Game,” the one-hour film will explore not only on the teams competing on the field, but will also provide an up-close look at the legions of diehard fans and assess the profound impact the rivalry has on the fabric of our state.
In case anybody’s forgotten, South Carolina rallied from a 28-14 second-half deficit last year to defeat the Tigers 31-28 in Death Valley. The Gamecocks then went on to trounce Conference USA Champion Houston in the Liberty Bowl, while Clemson lost to SEC doormat Kentucky in its bowl game. Again, just in case anybody’s forgotten.
Anyway, according to the network, the program will be broadcast statewide as part of ETV’s Carolina Stories series the night before the Carolina-Clemson game on Friday, November 23. An encore presentation will follow on Saturday afternoon before the game and an updated version of the show, including game day footage, will air the following week.
We even hear SCETV camera crews will be interviewing fans at Carolina and Clemson home games this year, including Saturday’s Gamecock season-opener against Louisiana-Lafayette.
UPDATE – Check out this press release from SCETV. Casting call, football fans!
