The Clemson president, AD and BOT should take the time to hear the wants and desires from the fans. And by fans, I mean the real fans that have an actual financial stake and sincere interest in the long term prosperity of Clemson Football, along with the other athletics. I truly believe they could get some good input and insight if they would be willing to listen to what the CU Alumni think about this whole expansion topic.
loose partner nonsense has got to go. What, do we want to relegate ourselves to getting the most worn out bird at the bunny ranch? No. During my 4 years at Clemson, I never once had a loose partner. They were all in tip top shape and very youthful.
Loose partnership.....smh....might as well get a sponsorship from Arby's.
Regardless of what the fan base/alumni want. Sure we will still play the game of football if we stay, but it will eventually be a glorified intramural game. Competing against HBCUs for the talent Major College Football has looked over.
Sorry, but the decision should have nothing to do with fans. Any decision a university makes should have the best interest of the students at the top of the list. We have about 18 athletic teams and Clemson has an investment in all of those teams and the decision will affect all of those athletes, not just football players.
News from USuC...
"Richardson was the 20th Gamecock arrested since Spurrier was hired in Nov. 2004"
"As I watched the game yesterday I couldn't help but feel crushed. We beat Furman by 4 TDs, but to me it looked like we got whipped."
"George Bush, we are reliably informed by the media, has the IQ of a moron, though how he matriculated from Yale and Harvard or flew an F-106 will remain an unexplained mystery. Doubtless his father bribed the airplane to fly itself."
Currently a supporter of Staying in the ACC? I am sure you are one of 3 groups who are alumni and LOVE Clemson( me since my first game there at age 7 in 1972) but want 3 different futures for where Clemson would play (remain in ACC, go to SEC, or go to Big 10). I believe unless the ACC can woo ND in then we have to move to protect our football brand. SEC first because of geography and some history but if not SEC, then the Big 10. Go Tigers!!!!!
Me where we go as long as we get out. We can’t miss out on the money we can be making in the 2 big conferences. We usually only go to 1 away game a year and I don’t have a problem going to one of the big 10 locations once a year. I know there are fans that go to more away games than I do and I get why they would rather be in the SEC because of distance and familiarity with the schools.
