If you could bring any Clemson Football tradition back,


Aug 4, 2022, 4:30 PM

What is it and why is it kids riding pieces of cardboard down the hill by the Northwest End-zone?

Run down the hill as a big group!!! This single line thing takes way to long and frankly is just not as intimidating. Go watch some video from running down hill in Ford and other years. Much, much better.

In my time it was all games.

My favorite tradition to bring back the balloon release. In the past I've helped get the newly hatched turtles safely into the water. I have probably saved more turtles than Clemson balloons have killed.
