One more reason to hate Kirk Herbstreit

Posted: Sep 11, 2012 12:54 PM


Kirk we don't need ya!!!!!

I think you love Kirk and are just hurt he told the

Is he wrong?

Posted: Sep 11, 2012 1:05 PM

Kirk has said that he's somewhat of a Clemson fan, he has plenty of Clemson grad friends and said he pulls for the Tigers in most games. And theres times you can tell he really likes Clemson

I just think this year he seems to be laying off the Clemson bandwagon and seeing what happens instead of picking us to win big and being wrong.. again

Re: Is he wrong?

Posted: Sep 11, 2012 1:10 PM

he may not be wrong, but I have still never liked him wether if he has friends here or not. Clemson is not the toughesht team to root for. It is very easy from my experience.

Ever rooted for anyone else?

Posted: Sep 11, 2012 1:46 PM

how do you know it isn't easier for everyone else, and therefore hardest for us?

He is right we have done less with more for over 20 yrs I

for one have been very disappointed sepecially having grown up in the mid and late 70's and went to Clemson in the 80's my expectations are high

Kirk Herbstreit had given us so much love and it comes back

Posted: Sep 11, 2012 1:08 PM

to bite him in the ### everytime. whats not true about what he said? this year may change that, but until then...

Re: Kirk Herbstreit had given us so much love and it comes back

Posted: Sep 11, 2012 1:11 PM

Well if this year does change that, I hope he doesn't start ranting on how he just loves this football team.

Why? I like it when he gives props to Clemson.

I like Kirk, he has always been one of the more objectional analyst on TV. He's always liked Clemson and more often than not picks Clemson to win. He was probably a big reason that Gameday came to Clemson in 2006. In this video he's simply being the same person he's always been. Unbiased and honest.

Clemson is like your child that

Tested gifted in kindergarten, but by high school is a C student, passed the physical fitness test, but chooses to stay inside reading comic books rather than playing football, and chooses to attend South Carolina despite getting into Clemson. Just constantly not reaching his potential and leaving you shaking your head wondering WTF?

you couldn't be father from the truth***

Nobody chooses to go to South Carolina

if they get into Clemson

Over the years, I have met a couple of coots

Posted: Sep 11, 2012 4:10 PM

that claimed they got accepted to Clemson but chose South Carolina. I always assumed they were liars.

One of my friends chose to go to USuC over Clemson.

Also the fact that his mom said Clemson was "too far from home."

There's something in these hills.

I like Kirk.. and he may not be totally right, but he

Posted: Sep 11, 2012 1:42 PM

also isn't totally wrong. If you are a Duke fan, there is no hope, so you just don't care. With Clemson, there is hope. Year after year we find excruciating ways to blow games or seasons. That's all he meant, I think, and I don't find that to be inaccurate. Loosen up a little bud.. hate is a pretty strong word.

Kirk knows whereof he speaks on this. He has clearly been in

our camp many times only to look stupid for doing it.

ESPN jumps on our bandwagon every time we give them a chance, stop hating b/c Clemson's football team has disappointed them. and us.

But, that being said, I do think that Dabo is different from TB and the results will show that, moreso than it already has.

Herbstreit 100x more about college football than you ever will... AND he roots for Clemson.

he's right, but I don't hate him

Posted: Sep 11, 2012 3:52 PM

because what he really meant to say is "I've been a closet Clemson fan for awhile, and it has been tough for ME."
He wants Clemson to succeed, and so does ESPN. It's true, ESPN loves us when we show promise, only to let everyone down. I have to believe that will all change soon though.

Sounds like a fair analysis to me. By the way Herbie tries to keep our guys motivated because he generally likes Clemson.


Re: One more reason to hate Kirk Herbstreit

Posted: Sep 11, 2012 4:07 PM

EVERY time he jumps on our bandwagon - we pull a "CLEMSON" in a big way. Remember the loss to VT after stomping GT the week prior? That was a HUGE loss, and KH was riding our bandwagon hard. He's probably still reeling from that move. Nah - be thankful that KH is seeing the light and staying off of our bandwagon. We will be fine now. It was a curse rather than a blessing.

To All CLEMSON TiGERS..Sending you Bright Light from the Carolina Coast and hoping you get to witness a huge Orange sunset tonight. Go Tigers!

Kind of a back handed compliment

Posted: Sep 11, 2012 6:14 PM

Hopefully this year will be different.

The history, the recruiting and Clemson's facilities demand that we compete at a very high level and our expectations are always sky high. I cannot wait for Clemson to finally break through.

On the other side, the coots have no expectations so anything they do is a first. The cannot be let down because they start from the bottom of the barrel.

He is absolutely right!!!

Posted: Sep 11, 2012 6:21 PM

Every year we lose to some crap team we have no business losing to...like N.C. State last year. And it always seems to come just as we start to get recognition so it hurts ten times worse.

Sorry, but if we want to prove him wrong...we actually have to prove him wrong.

As a general rule C students don't get into Clemson

Posted: Sep 12, 2012 10:52 AM

And students accepted to Clemson don't go to USuC but I agree with your general point.
