ESPN personality Samantha Ponder has been working exclusively on College GameDay this year (no sideline reporting) and said that during her time watching GameDay events through the years, Clemson's GameDays are #1 in her book.
“If I’m going to come to GameDay and get the GameDay experience with the crazy signs and the people who are really all-in, where should I go?”
"I always tell them Clemson," Ponder said to uproxx.com. "That’s even before all of their success this year. The past four years I’ve been on the show, every time we go to Clemson, it’s just insane. They’re creative with the signs. They’re committed no matter what the weather is. This year we were out there in a torrential downpour, and they were still bringing laminated signs. That’s smart. They were doing whatever they needed to do to be out there. That’s probably my No. 1."
