RULES for Clemson Fans this Weekend -- NC State 2022 Edition

Sep 29, 2022, 2:54 PM

Let's call it what it is...
Cigars, Stolen towels, laptops on the sidelines, trash-talking in the media (looking at you, NC State linebacker Isaiah Moore), etc. We've seen the power of the Clemson fanbase, and it's time to extend the LONGEST HOME WINNING STREAK IN THE COUNTRY!

This is a revenge game, a play-in game for the ACC Championship, the highest ranked matchup ever between the two teams, and the entire country is watching!

These are the RULES for Clemson Fans this weekend:

1. Wear Orange as a primary color to your attire. No white, black, navy, purple, pink, yellow with green bowtie, blue, seer sucker, or any other color. ORANGE! We're looking at temps in the high 50s and a possibility of some light drizzle at game time -- the hurricane will have moved out early in the morning Saturday. Plan now! If you need help, just think like this when you're laying out your clothes, "If what I am wearing today were worn by EVERYONE in Death Valley, would the crowd still look like a 'Sea of Orange?'".

2. Don't sell your tickets to NC State fans or scalpers. When in doubt, ask them to name the kicker, the defensive coordinator, the offensive coordinator, or who used to wear #28.

3. DO NOT pull in your tailgating spot after 4pm. DON'T BE THAT GUY/GIRL. Get there early, set up, and enjoy yourselves. Traffic is going to be the worst it has been all season. This ain't no Noon game and it sure as heck isn't Furman or La Tech. ...and La Tech was a great turnout!

4. Go to Tigerwalk. 5:20pm (aka 2 hours and 10 minutes before every game). Let the boys know we're ready to go! Students, this means you too! There was an incredible crowd at Tigerwalk for the La Tech game. Let's do that again!

5. Get in the stadium EARLY and be somewhat sober. As soon as the band goes by the stadium, head in! No more whining about missing the Tigers running down the Hill, or not being able to get to the Hill because the scanners are slow and YADA YADDA YADDA EXCUSE EXCUSE. If you miss it, it's because you didn't get into the stadium after the band went by. Be in your seat by 6:30pm; bonus points for dragging a frat boy to his seat. If you're drunk, you can't effectively be the fanbase we're capable of being! Remember, Miami 2005 was the loudest game in Death Valley history; that was a 3:30 game! This is a NIGHT GAME, a top ten matchup of undefeated teams, and ESPN GameDay is here!

6. If you are a student and you have a Hill ticket, get there by 6:30pm and sit on the band side of the Hill. The other side fills up so fast because of students coming in from Gate 5, and then the band side is completely empty. Don’t be a sheep and follow the crowd…plus, you’ll get a better spot. If you're getting to the Hill after about 7:00pm, you won't be able to move to that side of The Hill. You're welcome. Don't make excuses. That's what NC State coaches do when they lose.

7. If you are a student and you have a ticket but it's not what you wanted, be grateful you have a ticket and get your butt there! There are about 15,000 students that don't have a ticket to the game, or they have to find one and figure out how to pay rent. Don't be a "non-user." There's nothing worse than a "non-user." If you're a lame student fan and thinking about selling your ticket, hurry up and sell to a die-hard CLEMSON fan! The student section is the base of energy for our stadium! You think the rest of us know what the heck is being said in all these rap songs?! Show us how to do it!

8. Go to the bathroom on your way to your seat. Otherwise, you are going to miss something. For my liberal reads -- go ahead and wash your hands too because COVID or something.

9. If we are on defense, yell at the top of your lungs/clap/stomp/make noise. Start making noise after the previous play is complete. NC State shouldn't be able to hear a thing when they BEGIN signaling in plays. Don't get mad at the players for not making a play or the coaches for not making a good play-call if you aren't doing your job either! If you aren't hoarse on Sunday, you didn't do your job. Don't be the crowd that goes silent in the second quarter, or after an NC State first down or score. No matter what, be a FACTOR!

10. Hush when we are on offense. No sound. SHHHHHH!

11. If you 'Woo Hoo', you aren't a knowledgeable fan. If you don't know how it originated, look it up. Real Clemson fans don't 'Woo Hoo.' It kills me to know they were teaching it at freshman orientation a few years ago. There's no debating this one, and thankfully it's dying. Don't get me started on the 'paw' hand thing. Embarrassing.

12. Stand up for every drive. Yep -- just like GT in 2006, just like Notre Dame in 2015, and just like Louisville in 2016. It's going to be like that. You can sit during halftime and timeouts. If you can't stand, this might not be the game to come to unless you have front-row seats. Send your grand kids and teach them how we roll!

13. If the refs make a bad call, let them have it. Relentless. We've seen our fair share of Ron Cherrys and we sure have been victim to the phantom calls signaled directly from Greensboro in the past. We need the refs to FEAR making a terrible call.

14. No matter what, DO NOT leave the game early. Your ticket is an experience you'll talk about forever! Make sure you get every bit of value out of it. The traffic is going to suck -- own it. Be prepared and plan on watching a bit of the west coast games at a tailgating spot after our game. You have two choices after the game if it isn't a blowout -- you can tailgate for an extra hour with other Tigers, or you can sit in traffic and burn Joey B's expensive gas for an hour. Easy choice.

15. Be nice to the NC State fans. It's going to really stink for them to drive home with an 'L.' You'll make it so much worse when it's hard to be mad at Clemson fans. No cigar or laptop comments. As my mother always said, "Kill em with kindness."

16. Get plenty of sleep the night before. I don't need anyone falling asleep on us! If you're going to GameDay, you better hit the rack early!

17. During the Alma Mater, don't raise your hand until, "O'er" in "O'er the mountain height." Also, when you raise your hand, tuck that thumb in! Remember -- you're holding your Rat Cap! If you don't know what that is, you have some homework!

18. I'm looking for some creativity at GameDay. I better see an Aaron Judge sign out there somewhere!! Someone better address that 3 of 5 picked against Clemson last week! Let's get some DJU hype going, and let everyone know we're now about to add Women's Lacrosse and Gymnastics Championships to our belt. Extra bonus points for taking a shot a thuuuh Ohio State. Just leave Sakerlina fans alone -- it's getting pitiful in Columbia.

We punch our ticket to the ACC Championship this Saturday. Let's get it!

Tigers run down the Hill at 7:15pm!

I’ll add one thing: There is no “mother of all curse words” in Tiger Rag. If I see anyone do it I’ll punch you square in your nasty pie hole. Seriously.

Yep. All the noise needs to be positive - except the part about yelling at the officials, but even then cussing is not necessary.

I LOVE IT!!!

Just a couple of very minor additions:

8. Just LOL at that one

9. I taught my kids if your voice is back by TUESDAY then you didn’t try hard enough. Please don’t confuse them.

9 and 12. I tell them they can sit and be quiet in church on Sunday. Football games are for standing and yelling. There is a time and place for everything.

18. There must be at least one Gameday sign that simply says “CORSO IS OVER-RATED”. And someone with better skills than me should take the last frame of the Shipley video with the banner that says “WHERE THERE’S A WILL THERE’S A WAY” from earlier today and make a sign out of it.

Victory Walk is 40 minutes before kickoff. I get my practice yells in during Victory Walk then go to the bathroom and don’t leave my seat again until the end of the game.

This should be fun!

Go Tigers! Beat State!!!

Marine One. Is this the new name for HMX1? This was the Marine choppers then President Nixon used when I was stationed at NAU. NAU was the Presidential Yachts on the old Navy Yard. Just wanted to know if their is a connection. Thanks in advance. Stemper Fi !

Marine One is the call sign of any Marine aircraft carrying the President, doesn’t have to be HMX1, IIRC.

My suggestion, if you want your voice to last through the second half, is take at least one tube of Hall's with you. My daughter and I, both CU grads, went through almost three of those tubes during the 2016 Louisville game. You might want to take a couple of Tylenol or aspirin also. Be loud and do nolt sit down during the game. If the Nancys do not have at least 5 procedure penalties, you have not yelled enough. I just wish we still did balloons.

Students and fans cup your hands and make a natural megaphone to increase decibels. Using a rolled up small piece of poster board from your “go tigers” sign works too…
Be loud and proud!

Superb post Sir! Got me even more pumped for this game.

Game day Tip:
Switch over to water 1 hour before kickoff - you’ll remember this Wolfpack Massacre and you’ll feel better in the morning.

I can’t remember the last drunk Tiger fan I saw at a game.

Can’t say that about every stadium I’ve been to in sixty plus years of Tiger fandom. NO Stadium you will ever go to for a game is as family oriented at Clemson U. I for one am proud of that. I don’t want to miss a minute of the action in DV so it’s best to enjoy the moment with a clear head, I think.
