After the game while walking out of the stadium he had a long list of traditions and other things we do during the game that he wishes UofSC would do. He said the main two were the Walk of Champions which he loved walked directly toward the NCSU fans and he said the team entrance was so good with the intro, buses on the screen and We Will Rock You that he, who hates Clemson, got chills. I told him our traditions are what makes us what we are and that is why unbiased visitors who take in games at both UofSC and in the Real Death Valley almost always become Clemson fans. It was a glorious night in the Valley. GO TIGERS!!!
We had a USC Freshman in our group Sat night at the ballgame by invite of my children. First time ever at Clemson and was blown away. I feel certain he is a Tiger fan now or will be if he wants to continue traveling with my kid. Go Tigers
What, they don't think their traditions are good enough?
1. Doo-doo ice 2. Exiting the stadium at the beginning of the 3rd qtr 3. Tripping over druggies and ###### in the fairgrounds around their stadium 4. Playing 2001 when it's 2022 5. High school fire extinguisher entrance 6. Being the bottom dweller of any conference they are a member of 7. Coaching graveyard 8. Embarassing the State of South Carolina 9. Promoting a cruel animal sport 10. Pretending they are the "Carolina" 11. Pretending they are the "USC" 12. Shooting the bird at everyone 13......
Shall I go on? They have a lot more traditions than we do. They should embrace them.
It was the most fun I have had in DV in many years…

…I had a friend who is a NC State fan/dad, who asked to come with me to the game.
I took him everywhere and showed him everything before the game, and then, there was the game.
He was just blown away with the whole experience.
He said that he never really could understand what the fuss was all about with Clemson Football in Death Valley, until last night.
Now, he is pushing his wife and another Coot couple, to come with my wife and me to see the Coots in Death Valley.
I told him that when Clemson beats the Pack, it isn’t personal. It’s just that Dave D is just such a putz with Clemson that there is no team in the ACC more deserving of a Clemson beatdown the the Pack.
With the Coots…it’s just personal, so, I’m not sure that the Coot couple will be able to handle this 8th loss in a row to the Tigers. They may have to hold back here in Raleigh.
