I was in Japan. I called my mom and she told me. I remember thinking that it was a joke. But it took the wind out of me. I couldn't believe he could be gone. to me he was Clemson. He was there since I was 8 . He was the man. I was mad for a while. Where were you?

I was a cadet at The Citadel. Couldn't believe it. My roommate was a Carolina fan and was giddy.

Drove up to Clemson in disbelief and joined the march on the President's lawn.

Who fires an immensely popular head coach after three consecutive 10-win seasons?

I give you....

I was in kindergarten at recess when I found out.

I got so angry that I threw a toy football and hit a classmate right in the face.

Hope the classmate was a coot! Because I felt like I was punched in the stomach.

Our family had just moved to SC. My Mom got a temporary job at Clemson while trying to find a more permanent position.

She started work at Clemson the day Danny Ford was fired. We were not very familiar with Clemson football at the time.....but I distinctly remember my Mom coming home from her first day of work saying that she thought the Clemson football coach had died. She said everyone on campus was crying.

I was downtown Charleston with a friend , we were seeing another friend who was visiting from Spain .
It kind of threw me . Ruined the rest of my day .
I was 21 and I had accepted the fact that Clemson would always be coached by the great Danny Ford .

Correction , I was still 20 .

On a more paw-sitive note , Dabo Swinney is just 21 wins behind Danny Ford to move into 2nd place on Clemson's all time football head coaching victories . I bet he has that total about 6 games into the 2017 season .

Mrs. Penland's 7th grade English class. She was a CU grad & very sympathetic the rest of that semester. The HomeEc teacher, also a Clemson grad, Ms. Coleman, got me out of class to tell me. I spent the rest of the day talking to her about Clemson.

I was living in Columbia . I had heard from a trustee that they were going to have to choose to either support the president or not so I wasn't surprised when it came out. They really had no choice at that point. It is still amazing that someone didn 't get everyone in a room and get something hammered out.

People were talking about marching over to Marx Lenin's house and setting it on fire. In the end we settled for another pitcher of Long Island iced tea.

2019 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg

How much was pitcher back then?

It was $10 in 97-99.

I think Esso had them for $9 during that time.

Thought the manager was messing with me. Golf was bad enough but that really ruined my day.

Michael Bolton's "How am I supposed to live without you" was oddly enough the #1 song that week! And if you heard about it by phone in your car, it was most likely attached to a bag.

I was in Schilleter getting ready to eat lunch. Dark dark day. Vance Hammond was whipping the mob into a frenzy in front of Tillman and we picked up whatever object we could find and stood on the presidents lawn thinking about throwing things. Dark........dark...... Glad things are where we are now though despite the 30 plus years of regaining form.
