What was the best run in Clemson history?

In my opinion, the CJ spiller run vs GT in 2006 where he completely juked out 2 defenders for a TD. Awesome moment in death valley when that happened

Bellamy HOUSED it the first time he touched a ball in a game

field goal. He made two cuts on one run that got us from about midfield to the 25 yard line.

Emory Smith vs. Scar in 1995 was a close 2nd. He carried two or three Gamecocks on his back to seal the win in Columbia.

Thanks for posting that. Ive never seen that before

I hope Dye can do that to a couple of coot defenders next year. +1

I vividly remember that Terry Allen run. Clemson has had flashier runners but never one tougher than Terry Allen.

Terry Allen 73 yards for a TD @ FSU in '89.

That one stands out for me. I was there for the game and it was a huge win for the Clemson program.

great run IMO. We lined up quick and caught FSU completely off guard. Most of their team was still standing with their hands on their hips looking towards the sideline when we snapped the ball.

Vs Nc state. Gets us down to near the 10 yard line. then gets hurt And limps off field. Comes out of the game. next play bombs. he comes back in and scores on like a 11 yard run.

Find out after the game that he had broken his leg on the previous run but still finished that drive.

Cant decide which but of his, but Woody made it - no doubt -

others were huge plays, ie Allen at FSU but the actual runs that Woody pulled off were amazing - how he would consistently be covered up in a crowd of defenders and some how pop out the other side - the guy was nearly impossible to get on the ground at times.

I've been watching Clemson football. Todd Blackledge acted like he didn't believe what he just saw when Spiller did that. Jon Gruden praised Spiller for that play as well

For a long time, I've remembered this as a KO return, but

the more I think about it, it must have been a reverse.

Derrick Hamilton vs Gatek crossed the field a couple of times and Woody(?) made a block at about the 10 yard line to take out the last defender.

badge-donor-05yr.jpg link

there are so many that stand out to me. I loved Terry Allen

Tracy Johnson, Flagler, Spiller, Williams, Ellington, Driver....the list goes on and on. How can you pick?

the Orange Bowl with about three minutes to go. It pretty much sealed the National Championship. It is hardly ever talked about. It is the biggest play in Clemson history. Go watch it on YouTube. There is no play that comes close to it. I have said this for over thirty years

Definitely the most overlooked run in Clemson history!***
