Spoiled "long-term" fans, flame away, but hear me out.

I'm hearing a lot of "I'm a long-time fan" type posts on here recently, as if it's some sort of bragging right that comes with benefits and perks. Let's examine the facts of MY Clemson journey.

I graduated from Clemson in the 90's. Weekends usually were spent vacationing at one of my family compounds or on our yacht, so I never made it to a football game. Based on what I have heard about our success then, I didn't miss anything!

My first real game was in 2010, when my good chum Brixton DeVries invited me to his stadium suite as thank you for a large contract we signed with his company, Peak7 Ventures. It all seemed a little quaint and blue-collar at the time, but the pageantry was undeniable and I recognized that Clemson football may be a unique, high-value way to conduct business on Saturday afternoons.

Fast forward to 2013. I get a call from Davis Babb with IPTAY, letting me know about some unique opportunities to be a part of rebuilding Clemson football, with some nice ground-floor perks to boot now that they were wiping the slate clean of the people who had been scraping by on the merits of IPTAY points earned by a long-dead grandparent. With a handshake, we purchased our first stadium suite and two adjacent spots on the Avenue of Champions....one for my Range Rover SVR Autobiography, and one for my catering spread.

The next several years were a thrill ride! I bought many orange items from MH Frank, I believe we won 3 or 4 national championships, and most importantly, I closed more business contracts sitting in that suite than I ever had in my life. It was magic, and when good things happen on the field, good things happened in my bank account.

And that brings us to 2021. All of a sudden, as if hit by a plague of locusts, Clemson football is abysmal. Our coaches have forgotten how to coach, and our quarterback couldn't throw an extra point if he had to! My gameday business dealings are in the dumpster---who wants to sign a multi-year multi-million dollar contract while watching a team struggle to eke out a win against Holy Sisters of the Poor? I'll tell you ....NO ONE. It's all "let me think on it" and "let me get back to you".

So for those of you proud to root for mediocrity, who brag about being fans since the 60's and swapping racially tinged jokes with Frank Howard, put your nostalgia in one hand and the check I write each year in the other, and tell me what weighs more. You need me as much as I need you, and more importantly, we both need this team to stop playing like a bunch of panty-waisted emo-jocks. Let's get on the same page and demand greatness. This may only be an alliance of convenience, but let's make it an alliance nonetheless. Go Clemson!

One of their main uniform colors is yellow, which is also one of Georgia Tech's main colors. We beat Georgia Tech, so I really like our chances in this matchup.

The color of the uniform is always something to consider when handicapping these matches. I have found that the teams that go with primary colors such as red, yellow, or blue, have better offenses. Now teams with secondary colors such as orange, green, or purple have solid defenses do band better on the road than the teams with primary colors. Load up on the Tigers. Defense wins championships if the offense can score enough.

Keep this forum to football, and quit ###### women with your eyes. There's my piece.

It's amazing how football crosses age and class lines to bring us all closer together.

I'm an old guy but have also noticed certain things when Clemson football is subpar:

The bream don't bite as well.

The Skoal isn't as sweet.

My 1997 F-150 sports a few more rust spots.

Somehow I think we'll get through it.

anyone who drives a yact and a fancy german car like that is no clemson grad that i know. you probably went some fancy private school like Emmory or Lander and hopped on the Dabo bandwagon. You probably wear Ohio State underrware below your orange overalls.

Grandpap was a true lifelong fan who lost his seats to you people. He couldnt keep the seats and the note on the pontoon so he had to watch from home. I know that sent him to the grave more than the emphazima

I really hope this is satirical. If not it sounds like Daddy’s money and yachts and family compounds helps explain all the ridiculous posts you have put on here lately. If this is all real then it’s no wonder you are spoiled by recent Clemson football because you’ve been able to buy anything you want your whole life and explains why you think you can buy perfection in college football. You can’t. Go buy a professional baseball team. I don’t need you or anything from you or anything to do with you. Neither does Clemson. They might miss the money short term but there are plenty more like you lined up for a chance to be part of the game.

In the new NIL era, you're going to need people like me to pick up every additional walk-on player scholarship we can if we hope to ever get on the same field again as Alabama, much less have a snowballs chance in Hades of beating them. You can't afford to run anyone off.

Believe it or not, that was the original purpose of the upper decks…..to give non-alumni fans a place to watch the game from and not feel awkward when they didn’t know the words to the alma mater.

Somewhere along the way the lines got blurred, but it’s my understanding that they’re thinking about reinstituting the original plan from a practical standpoint (alums can pay more for premium seats) and as a nod to tradition as well.
