“Clemson Grit”


Mar 8, 2020, 7:44 AM

Seriously just asking... Can someone define what this is supposed to mean?

I’ve seen the basketball program use it on t-shirts, twitter hashtags, etc.

I think Clemson Grit = "Win the ones you aren't supposed to and lose the ones you should win".

Grit is like sand paper, means your tough and gritty and you still burn.

I have one of these tee shirts that I workout in and wear cycling. I bought it because when I was at Clemson back in the day 1968 to 1972 the people from up north would call southerners "Grits" because we loved grits and they did not we did not mind at all. We called them "Yanks" they did not mind either because it was a friendly rivalry at least that's the way it was in my particular dorm. So we were known as "Clemson Grits". That is the meaning for me with this shirt and the reason I bought it.

Do you know what grit is?


Mar 8, 2020, 9:18 AM

I think of it as toughness, fight, and determination.

I thought I knew what “grit” is...but was starting to wonder...

When you go into March with something to play for, and then the next two games the coach says things like....
“We were lazy.”
“Guys weren’t into it...” (maybe paraphrasing here)
etc.

That’s kinda why I was doubting what I had previously thought this catchy slogan meant.

Can you enlighten us, Judge?

It was a term that came about during Gabe DeVoe's

senior season when his singular determination and competitive fire helped us close out games that we had otherwise often lost, eventually leading us to the Sweet 16. It was co-opted from there and somehow applied to the whole program as a rallying moniker since.
