South Carolina and North Carolina play tonight to kick off the college football season.  While this Battle of the Carolinas is compelling for a number of reasons, I think the New York Post is reaching on this one just a bit in the subheadline.  Either the Post is mistaken, or there are actually only 49 states in the union.  And for that matter - what about the Dakotas?

UNC Football: It’s recap time… South Carolina

Jadeveon Clowney Responds To Criticism On Twitter

While South Carolina easily handled UNC to kick off its 2013 season, much of the attention from the matchup has been centered around Gamecocks defensive star Jadeveon Clowney, who often looked winded between snaps.
