South Carolina Highway 99 is a 3.22 mile state highway in Chester County that runs from the south end at US 21/SC 200 in Great Falls to the north end at SC 9 between Richburg and Fort Lawn near Lancaster. Banks McFadden was from Great Falls.


Chester State Park is about 3 miles southwest of Chester, South Carolina about halfway between Columbia and Charlotte. It is a 523 acre park built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1935 with a 160 acre park lake. The lake has a 472 foot pier/walking bridge that crosses the lake for fishing and wildlife observation. There is a boathouse that sits out over the lake where you can fish or rent a boat or canoe. There is also 1.3 mile Caney Fork Creek Nature Trail that follows along the shore of the lake. Three picnic shelters along the lake can be rented and include a playground. Lakeview Hall, a fully enclosed meeting facility overlooking the lake, is used for weddings and reunions. The campground can be used for tents and RVs. And the park offers an 18-hole and 9-hole tournament sanctioned golf course, disc golf that is.

99 - 99 Offensive Plays to Take Down the Unbeatable Greatest Team of All Time

20

May 24, 2024, 5:55 AM
Reply

In 2016, Alabama was the undisputed greatest team of all time! Why? Because everyone knew that “no one was beating Bama.” It was simply common knowledge among any sensible person with knowledge of college football.

It took 99 offensive plays – but Clemson forever changed 2016’s Bama place in history ... and Clemson’s place as well!


Perhaps the talking heads who anointed Bama as “unbeatable” felt they had reason for their confidence in Bama’s imminent 15-0 championship season. According to Al.com:

“The Tide was a ruthless bunch with an angry front seven that pounded opponents into submission and an offense that ran through defenses. Before the season began, Alabama was seen as the team to beat. It was ranked No. 1 and wouldn't budge from the top spot until that last fateful second against Clemson. Right out of the gate, it stomped USC in the opener, beating the Trojans, 52-6. A month later, it crushed ninth-ranked Tennessee in Knoxville by 39 points, treating Josh Dobbs like a pinata before lighting victory stogies and posing for photos.

The Tide carried on like marauding bandits, showing no mercy as it tore through the SEC while thumping Mississippi State, Auburn and Florida in the SEC Championship game. Along the way, Alabama pulled off some remarkable feats. There was the flying sack by Allen as he launched himself into Texas A&M quarterback Trevor Knight. There were the three non-offensive touchdowns that helped Alabama stage a 21-point comeback and secure a victory on the road against Ole Miss. There was the shutout the Tide pitched in LSU's Death Valley.

Alabama became appointment viewing as it laid waste to its competition.”

https://www.al.com/alabamafootball/2017/12/was_2016_alabama_one_second_fr.html


Even the NY Times looked back on that 2016 Alabama team as Bama’s best:

“Three hundred and eighty-seven points.

That’s the scoring differential the 2016 Alabama football team had against its opponents, but it’s the four points that separated the Crimson Tide from Clemson in the national championship game that kept the program from another national title and being remembered as Nick Saban’s best team.”

https://www.nytimes.com/athletic/1829112/2020/05/22/2016-alabama-most-dominant-teams-nick-saban-clemson-loss/

That great Bama defense started the national title game strong. They went after Clemson QB Deshaun Watson with a fierce tenacity – thinking Watson would wilt over the course of the game!

Saban had not lost a National Title game. Bama led 24-14 going into the 4th Quarter. Bama had dominated 4th Quarters all season. What’s more: Under Saban, Bama was 97-0 (not a typo) when leading by 10+ in the 4th Quarter. All good for the greatest team ever, right?

And yet:

Here’s a video guaranteed to brighten your day, Fellow TNetters. If you are a Bama fan, however, I suggest you close your eyes/ears. Spoiler alert: By the 4th Quarter it was the Bama defense that was wilting while Deshaun Watson was going strong!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYC2ocqM7g4


Al.com summed up the gams as follows:

A team that stormed through its competition, that defeated all but one of its first 14 opponents by at least ten points, that scored 15 non-offensive touchdowns, that led the nation in sacks and scoring defense, that had ten players drafted later that year...will never be celebrated as a champion because of what Watson and Clemson did.”

“One second separated the Crimson Tide from glory. A single tick stood between 2016 Alabama and acknowledgement as one of the sport's greatest squads of all-time. Just before the last breath of the college football season, Deshaun Watson delivered a game-winning touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow that was a death blow to the Tide and its place in history.

https://www.al.com/alabamafootball/2017/12/was_2016_alabama_one_second_fr.html


99 offensive plays – and it took every one of them!

It all culminated with this glorious part of Clemson history
(Somehow: It never gets old!!):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVZtSfMRgb4

“Watson to Renfrow” will now forever be part of Clemson lore! Forever!

99 - Mike Eppley Completed 99 Passes in 1983

QB Mike Eppley started in football at Clemson. As did PG Mike Eppley. While he was at Clemson, UPI stated that Eppley had his eyes on baseball as well:

“Before he's through, Eppley also hopes to work in a season as a center fielder on the varsity baseball team. He's got it figured out that he can do that in his senior year after both the football and basketball seasons are over.”

https://www.upi.com/Archives/1982/10/21/Clemsons-Mike-Eppley-doesnt-know-whether-hes-a-football/4263404020800/

That same article also discussed how Eppley was successful both on the field AND in the classroom:

'Academics still come before athletics for me,' said Eppley, who has a 3.3 grade point average on a 4.0 scale. 'I really have to budget my time.'


According to Sports-Reference.com Quarterback Mike Eppley registered the following statistics:

Mike Eppley (1980-1984):
- 252 Pass Completions for 3354 Yards
- 28 Touchdown Passes
- 165 Carries for 398 Yards (2.4 Average)
- 5 Rushing Touchdowns

https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/mike-eppley-1.html

Of note: Those completion stats included 99 completions in 1983 and 116 completions in 1984! Sports Illustrated noted that Mike Eppley was “the third most efficient passer in the nation in '83” when he completed 99 passes.

https://vault.si.com/vault/1984/09/05/7-clemson



And that same Sports-Reference.com source also provides Point Guard Mike Eppley’s statistics:

Mike Eppley (1980-1984):
- 44 Games Started
- 279 Points

Thanks to Scott Rhymer and the Tiger Pregame Show for their great videos:

Mike Eppley was inducted into the Clemson Hall of Fame in 1990. He is another one for whom I could not find much on what he is doing currently. It would be much appreciated if anyone knows!
