Plyler's Blog: A Different Level of Hype

A Different Level of Hype

A Different Level of Hype
When Clemson faced Notre Dame in 1977, I saw something I had never seen before...ticket scalpers.

I was a little fella at the time and hadn't seen too many $100 bills, but I saw fans standing in Lot 5 holding them up looking for tickets.

I think the biggest ever hype I've seen for a game in DV

was in 2013 for the FSU game. That was insane the amount of hype and media coverage for that game. Clemson was on ESPN every single day, that entire week. I think it led to players getting distracted and a little big-headed and wide-eyed. No was was FSU the better team by 40 points that season.

$750 a night for a hotel?

That has to be total...if not, the hotels need to be sued for price gauging...that's ridiculous.

Not the total

In-town hotels routinely charge $400 or more per night, 2-night minimum, for home football weekends. It's insane, without a doubt, but somehow they get away with it. Mostly because people are crazy enough to pay it.

I was in the student section for the game. Still PO that they called back the Clemson touchdown for being a forward lateral even though Steve was behind the line of scrimmage.

GaT Game after ND Game is the One that Scares Me

Posted: Jun 16, 2015 10:28 PM

My concern is we will have all the hype in the world after D-Wat and team go off vs. the Irish in a 13-plus point win. Then we get GaT and their gadget Offense the very next week after Natl Media describes us as the most exciting team in the country. Sure I'm getting ahead of myself, but Dabo and Coach Venables will have their work cut out for them after our big ND win to keep our Tiger team in focus for the bigger GaT game.
