What were these numbers in the prior 6 years? With the really bad offense causing our downturn, I can believe the numbers would be lower. IOW, non-Clemson folks didn't want to watch bad football. Until FSU, Miami or VA Tech/UNC gets better, the national attention will not be tuned into the ACC.
have waaaaaaaaay more students attending and graduates as compared to Clemson. Big 10 schools have, up to about 10 years ago, been graduating more students than Clemson has enrolled annually. So when Dabo talks about "little ole Clemson" that truly is the case.
Then when you add all the SEC fans that could never even attend college, let alone write a complete sentence, that makes a lot of people watching those games.
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."
This is why we need ND to join the conference. The ACC network was just added to Comcast in ATL, but it's still not on in other major market s. ND could change all that. I did nt have it and missed a couple of games.
