Coots won their only conference championship in 1969 BUT

USuCk's record in 1969 was 7-4. 7-3 in regular season and then they lost their bowl game to WV
Not one team in the ACC in 1969 had a winning record

So not too sporty of a year other than winning the ACC title.

South Carolina has a tradition in football, but it just really sucks.

There's something in these hills.


They should make up T-shirts for that very special year

Everybody likes a champion.


I remember - winning the ACC title..............

in those days didn't mean a thing - nobody had a decent record.


The 1960s were awful for the ACC...

We only had an ACC team ranked in the final AP poll once the entire decade.


We played Auburn, Georgia, and Alabama that year

Five Home ACC games.
AT Wake was their only conference road game. I've always wondered why that was.

Two observations

1) No Homecoming game that year?
2) 1-1 vs future ACC teams, 1-0 vs former ACC teams

I attended Clemson in the 60's, graduating 1970. Those were bad year for the whole conference. I mean there were no black football players, and now a school couldn't even take in a dumb white football player with the 800 rule. It was hopeless.
