complete crap! No tickets for their band next time.

Give them their tickets, in their normal spot, and make no mention of it. And kick their ### again.

Fake info from VT. Suggest we go ahead and save them an upper deck slot next time they come. Carrying the tubas up to the top will be good for them. Pathetic response and pathetic action on their part in the first place.

And to pour salt in the wound, Tiger Band showed up with 150 members as communicated with VT, and found out when they arrived that VT only allotted 130 seats.

It's hopefully where their band will be in DV from now on. Never in the past though.

Flat out wrong/lie. ALL Visiting band sits front row next to their teams end zone entrance at Death Valley.

2019 white level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

Bullshit. They sat in the west end zone in 2012.

I know for a fact this is incorrect. I have a friend that was in their band and they were never in the very top of stands, and if it did happen the instances were few and far between.

It's obvious they are doing absolutely everything they can to take our traveling presence out of the game. Too bad it's not helping their team haha.

Go Tigers! Go Tiger Band! Still sounding great tonight!

They take it out on the Tiger band. Clemson takes it out on the Hokie football team. A trade off I'll make every time. Hope the tiger band members don't mind. :)

They made this up because they got called out on national TV by the announcers!

A couple of years ago Georgia Tech put FSU's band in the upper deck of the end zone (or side, can't remember), so the FSU fans could have better seating. That made some sense to me. Seems like VT could have made up a better "story" that the one they told!

make it hard to put band members in the game in the 4th quarter


Re: FB Update: Virgina Tech explains Tiger Band placement


Posted: Oct 2, 2017 8:36 AM
 

I had rather the band have better seats than me. They work their tails off ! Fans don't


Maybe for OUR band....not the opponents band

I don't give a rip about them.....

I agree with you. About making money.


Posted: Oct 2, 2017 8:40 AM
 

Our athletic department has been run by a bunch of misers for 20 years. The current AD has opened up the purse a bit, but he's scratching hard to find extra dollars. You guys look like bazillionaires to us.


Re: I agree with you. About making money.


Posted: Oct 2, 2017 9:02 AM
 

HUH ? what does putting our band in the upper deck have to do with making money? V-tech can kiss my a ss that was just poor taste


Re: I agree with you. About making money.


Posted: Oct 2, 2017 10:01 AM
 

Those tickets are paid for too

but they probably sell them as season tickets

Re: FB Update: Virgina Tech explains Tiger Band placement

They (they being Va.Tech) figured if they placed the band up in the nosebleed
section, the Hokie fans wouldn't be able to hear Tiger Rag every time we scored.


Re: FB Update: Virgina Tech explains Tiger Band placement


Posted: Oct 1, 2017 2:58 PM
 

Next visit, let's put them up in the top west corner of upper deck North.


What ever happened to...


Posted: Oct 2, 2017 10:12 AM
 

...do unto others??? Next time if we DO put them in TDS or TDT, we can request they perform at halftime...it'll take the whole 2nd quarter to get down to the field and 3rd quarter to get back up to their seats!


Re: FB Update: Virgina Tech explains Tiger Band placement


Posted: Oct 2, 2017 10:21 AM
 

If we were to put anyone's band in the upper deck it should be FSU to quiet that Tomahawk chop. But that won't happen because we do things right. This guy also posted that they haven't been to Clemson during his tenure- so he really doesn't know what he is talking about. He just lied.


Classy or Cheesy


Posted: Oct 2, 2017 10:39 AM
 

VT for the most part was a classy host this weekend. Their answers to why our Tiger band were seated in upper deck corner was anything but classy. It was cheesy. Their seating should have recipricated our seating when they visit DV, imo. In 7 years, we'll rise above the major slight to give their band decent seats. Why? Because the Tigers have class.

Re: FB Update: Virgina Tech explains Tiger Band placement


Posted: Oct 3, 2017 10:33 AM
 

Didn't matter where they sat our band. With how quiet their stadium became, I think people could hear tiger rag every few minutes in the next county. Petty tactic by VT, but we won't do that to them when they travel to the valley. We have more class than that.


Nope, we'll put their band where we always do....

Posted: Oct 3, 2017 11:32 AM
 

Right down by the field! Why? Because we are CLEMSON and we are than that. We don't have to worry about playing stupid pieces of gamesmanship! They should have worried more about our FOOTBALL TEAM, not our band!


Re: FB Update: Virgina Tech explains Tiger Band placement


Posted: Oct 5, 2017 11:20 AM
 

I don't know who posted that explanation, but from what I've been able to gather, VT didn't put your band up there. Clemson did.

VT gives visiting teams an allotment of tickets that cover that entire section of the stadium. It's up to the visitors' ticket office to sell/distribute those tickets. Your band was at the top of the stadium because your ticket office decided to sell the lower/better seats to paying customers.

Additionally, your ticket office could have decided to sell all the tickets and leave your band at home. That wouldn't have been VT's fault either.

Re: FB Update: Virgina Tech explains Tiger Band placement

Even if that were true please explain the inverted triangle of Clemson seats? From TV it appeared there were virtually no seats assigned to Clemson at the bottom with 3/4ths or more at the very top.
At Clemson over 1/2 the visiting team allotment is in the lower "bowl" with the band in the first 30 rows.


Now there's an explanation for the ages.


Posted: Oct 5, 2017 12:53 PM
 

Every athletic department decides where visiting bands will sit. "Hey we have a group of 75-100 band members that will be attending the game, should we sit them just wherever?" Uh, no.

If this is true, it just adds to the pile of pathetic crap that is Virginia Tech.

I understand the VT short changed us by 20 band seats.


Posted: Oct 5, 2017 1:00 PM
 

This after it was communicated to VT prior to the game per their request but when our band showed up VT had sold the seats to their VT fans.

Also, did I recall this right.... After the VT shootings when VT visited Clemson our band played their alma mater but at the end of the game when we always play our alma mater the VT band played over it. Did I dream that or get that wrong?

During pregame in 2007


Posted: Oct 5, 2017 1:07 PM
 

We played their alma mater. The crowd was silent. We then played our Alma Mater. The hokies in the stadium didn't show the same respect we showed for them and started their "let's go hokies" cheer.
