New Story: Poised: Deshaun Watson ready to run down the hill

Poised: Deshaun Watson ready to run down the hill

Deshaun Watson is the picture of poise, whether it’s throwing a touchdown pass at Georgia in his first collegiate game, staring down No. 1 Florida St. on the road, facing his arch-rival with a torn ACL or coming back from that injury. He doesn’t get rattled or excited. Unless he’s running down the hill prior to a Clemson home game. Full Story »



I am with you man! Let's win all our

This kid is the most humble player ive ever heard speak. He never says "i" its always "we". He knows that he is probably the best QB in college football today and it still does not affect him in the slightest. We as Clemson fans are a lucky bunch to have so many on the team that are that way. This is going to be a great season and im counting down the days to when i see them run down the hill for the 1st time of the 2015 season. Go Tigers!

i don't like this kid...

I LOVE THIS YOUNG MAN!

And the reason we have so many like him on this team is not an accident. You can thank Dabo for that! ??

And by the way, I love him too! ??

I agree mostly. I think it's good to have a little personal swagger too. I think it was after the UNC game he said, "I don't take a backseat to nobody".


you can bet inside he says this often....

"I DON'T TAKE A BACKSEAT TO ANYBODY"!

What is the " Beanie Bowl"?


i think it is the preperation game/practice the team does

in the stadium. Just to get the team ready for the first game.


It is the simulation/prep of game day for the players**********

Tommy Bowden started it in 1990

It is complete walk through of game day. Players arrive in the locker room and get dressed for practice and then hop on shuttles and drive around the stadium and go down the hill. The coaches go so far as donning the headsets and the coaches that will be up in the box during a game are in the box and they communicate using/testing the headset communications. The players practice and even go through the halftime routine of going in the locker room and coming back out. It is a great idea especially since it is such a unique stadium entrance.


TYPO - 1999 not 1990***

A bunch of schools do it now

Rich Rod has taken it everywhere he's been since leaving Clemson and Stockstill does it at MTSU


The players dress up as their favorite Beanie Baby.

It's a reminder that they are still kids, and to not get too cocky.

Enjoy, but be careful going down that hill son! ????

It always makes me nervous when the players run down the hill skipping and leaping. But for some reason, upon seeing this on the Tnet front page, I am genuinely afraid for DW to run down the hill. Please be careful DW!

2019 orange level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

Just my take ....


Posted: Sep 1, 2015 10:03 AM
 

But if a player can't make it down the hill, then unlikely to play through 12 tough football games.

Having said that ... me too.

Should DW4 zip line down the hill with an Orange cape?

Or just ascend from the top of the Oculus and fly to mid-field ?

So many tough decisions?

ZIPLINE FROM THE TOP OF THE OCULUS!

that would be dank

Just one time, would like to see...


Posted: Sep 1, 2015 10:39 AM
 

...the team walking boldly in-step and in-arm 4-5 wide down the hill and then sprinting when they reach the field. Not every time, just once every few years. It would have to be an idea from the seniors.


If you want to see them walk arm-in-arm

then get to the stadium earlier. The whole team links arms to walk off the field after warmups.


Yes. Seen it many times. From the field even. A great sight.

That's been going on for a while and it's fine in it's own right.

Not really my point though.

Doesn't really matter. The hill entrance is always fantastic; never fails to disappoint. However, players HAVE been injured in the past so I second the sentiment of previous posters that it's great that they "run down the hill" but makes me nervous when they "leap" down the hill


Re: Yes. Seen it many times. From the field even. A great sight.

If you go down the hill yourself you'll see that there is pretty much no choice but to "leap."

When you hit the flat spot on the hill you risk falling down if you don't hit it hard and jump at least a little. Even walking down the hill you have to be careful when it flattens out.
