''Or we could be playing in the Peach Bowl because that could be the best game of the New Year. Clemson-Tennessee is a game that could be on ESPN Classic 20 or 50 years down the line.''
Whether the game proves to be an ''Instant Classic'' or not, the confrontation between a superb Clemson receiving corps and an exceptional Tennessee secondary should be a classic matchup.
''There's going to be plays made and people flying around,'' Greer says. ''It's going to be a great game.''
The Vols had hoped to earn a BCS bowl bid after achieving a 10-2 record and a No. 6 national ranking. Thus, the Peach Bowl bid was something of a disappointment. Still, a victory would secure an 11-win season and a possible top-five ranking.
''That's an accomplishment I would love to have, an 11-win season,'' Greer says. ''Playing with the type of guys I've played with has been tremendous. The way our guys responded to adversity is a lesson in life.''
