When I was a younger Tiger fan winning any game called for a celebration.

1960 - 6-4
1961 - 5-5
1962 - 6-4
1963 - 5-4
1964 - 3-7
1965 - 5-5
1966 - 6-4
1967 - 6-4
1968 - 4-5
1969 - 4-6
1970 - 3-8
1971 - 5-6
1972 - 4-7
1973 - 5-6
1974 - 7-4
1975 - 2-9
1976 - 3-6

In many ways being a fan was more fun then than this year. I am now an entitled, spoiled a$$hole type of fan.

My memories when I was young started about 5 years before that. That was a long dry spell but exciting Saturdays. Games started at 1:00. Had to be there if you wanted to see them play. Might get on TV once every couple of years (regional broadcast) only.

The 1976 record was actually 3-6-2. I’m not correcting you to be a smarty, but to say that in my hometown of Cope, SC, we had people celebrating because we tied GIT in Atlanta 24-24.

Of course, 1977 was a great season with us beating ug in Athens and GIT in Atlanta.

My favorite bumper sticker during that ‘77 season was “Clemson Football - - Saturday Afternoon Fever.”

We definitely need to remember what was in the past, but also, with all our might, strain towards the excellence that is possible.

Go Tigers!

as a kid, so I somewhat know the feeling. Hard to believe
7-4 in 1974 was the best of those 17 seasons you mentioned.

In mid 80s when my brother was there, then early 90s when I was there. The records then were better than in the 60s/70s, but probably way more excrutiating….. as a fan, it’s better to know you stink, than to think you’re good and get crushed a few times a year!!
