Senior Coordinating Producer Ed Placey talked about his opening TV hill presentation for the Clemson-Georgia game and what else might be in store for tonight's game against Clemson-FSU.

What, if anything, did you want to improve upon this time around?

An important part of covering this was the cooperation from Clemson. They weren’t exactly sure how it was going to turn out either, so they were very cautious with how much access they gave us. After seeing it last time, and hearing the reaction to it from their own fans and staff, they wanted to give us even greater access, in particular to the locker room, and on-board the bus. Plus we learned a lot about the timing of how everything happens, include how what is happening inside the stadium relates to what is happening outside.

What can viewers expect to see when the telecast opens?

We’ll start out looking very traditional, and then go to a studio update segment. Around 8:10 p.m. is when we’ll come out of break with our Eminem open then right into our coverage of Clemson and Florida State in final preparation before they head out.
