Dawgs and Tigers - Monday Night Football?

Please. Not going to happen. On a related note, that Dabo sure is cute when he talks though ain't he?
Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney caused a bit of a stir on Monday, when he told USA TODAY that the Clemson-Georgia game to open the 2013 season could be moved from Saturday to Monday.
An intriguing proposition from a national standpoint: A potential matchup of two top-10 teams with high-powered offenses. ESPN would probably love the Monday night feature, and Clemson would apparently be open to it, judging by Swinney's bringing it up.
There's only one problem: Georgia almost certainly would balk at the idea.
The big difference here is that if the game were moved to Labor Day night, Georgia would be playing South Carolina five days later, while the Tigers get South Carolina State.

Now, if Dabo wants to switch those around, we know all scheduling concerns go through the office of one Steve Spurrier. And I believe they've met.
