BC game got me thinking....about football and weather


Nov 9, 2018, 5:03 PM

Here are my memorable weather games. Please add yours to the list.

Hottest:
Many a nooner in late August/Early September. Can you really tell the difference between 94 & 95 sitting on aluminum, in a concrete bowl, with the midday sun beating down on you?

Coldest: Tie 1- Home 1-Away (Both on Thursday night)
Home-NCST around 2005 too cold
Away-VT around 2006

Rain-
GT game in the early 2000's Remnants of a hurricane coming through turned the steps of the stands into a waterfall.
ND game of course
and.....
UNLV in the mid 90's a passing storm dumped a TON of rain on us. I remember seeing people slide down the hill. As a teen, I really wanted to go and join them.

Lightning-
I also think that UNLV was the 1st lightning delay that they had since Moby D!ck was a guppy and the last one since.

Snow- Flurried a bit against the Coots about 10 yrs ago. Would have loved to be at the Humanitarian Bowl in Boise in 2001


Some of you older....er....more experienced Tigers feel free to add some of the more memorable games you attended with extreme weather.

Not necessarily the worst weather, but the coldest

I've ever been in DV was Oct 1983. Left warm, sunny TN oblivious to what would happen later. Drove about 4.5 hours to see the NCSU game. We took a couple with us who had never been to a game at Clemson. Wind got up, temps fell into the 30's. Rain fell. We weren't prepared. Froze our patooties off.

But Clemson won 27-17, so all good.

Here's some from the top of my head...yes I am older Tiger in his 50's

1979... Peach Bowl in the old Atlanta Fulton County Stadium. Cloudy, damp, Cold with some sleet with temps in the 30's and we lost

1986 .... At NC State in Raleigh. A monsoon. and we lost. Enough said.

1986..... At Georgia Tech in Atlanta. Temp on field least a 100 degrees. Hot as hell.

1992... FSU at Clemson. 1st ACC game for FSU.... as I remember temps in the low 90's before game time in evening. hot tailgate.

1997..FSU at Clemson.... HOT... Temps in the low 90's.

2015.. Notre Dame at Clemson. Rain...Rain...Rain... least it was warm.

That's all I got..I have been going to Clemson games since the 70's. I am sure there were many other crazy weather extremes. :) I just can't recall.

1991 at UNC was cold and miserable. Ron Franklin started the broadcast "If you have a child at this game then you should feel sorry for them"
1985 at MD (the no coach on the sidelines game) was freezing as the the coot game in 2000 (the Catch II).
TCU - rain, rain, rain
Hottest ... Furman game in 1999(?) Woody's first game; Diamond Adam's mother had a heart attack and died at halftime. It was brutal.

GT game in 200?. Remember sitting in west end zone... stayed until halftime with rain coming down in buckets and then walked/swam back to house past downtown and under railroad tracks. Everyone else had showered and was eating pizza and drinking.
