What is youre worst Game experience as far as the stands go?


Posted: Apr 25, 2012 1:34 AM
 

Ignoring the play on the field, what was the worst experience you ever had at a College football game?


Mine had to be at the Scar game last year, I was in one of the Clemson section (upperdeck 50 yd line, don't care enough about the stadium to know how they name it). Older Clemson "fan" there, proceeded to make the entire section miserable, even before it looked like we were going to lose. I can handle dumpers on the internet, but there is only so much whining by a 50-60 year old man I could take in person. I have had things thrown at me by other teams fans, but it never quite irked me like that one man did.


What is yours?

I was in the band at the time. And yeah, it's normal to get taunted by the opposing team and all...but the Kentucky fans were just plain rude and awful. Maybe I met the wrong ones but it was just a miserable experience all around (and it doesn't help that we got our ##### handed to us in the game either).

the last three times at Carter-Finley, even though the first two of these games were wins the people around us were unbearable and we were minding our business like our football team was. But then last year was just funny as I was told by a fan of theirs walking back to the car, "we kept ya'll from going to the ACC championship game and now we are bowl eligible." So not only did he not where our team stood, he didn't even know about his own team!
Go Tigers!

Same game, afterwards had a guy come slam his face against our car, basically lick the whole passenger side window, then give a double middle finger. We'd just driven a few hours from Greenville in that same car, so I like to think he got some slightly dangerous in his belly later.

Was the 3:30 GT game about 6 years ago. Was sitting in the first row of the upper deck down in Atlanta on the Clemson side. My wife suddenly flinched and turned around while saying to me she was pretty sure she'd been hit by a piece of ice. I stand up and take a look around scanning the possible wrong doers with a very tough glare on my face. Nobody is wanting to take responsibility for their actions so i return to watching the game. Out of sheer luck I happen to turn back around just on the notion that I may see the jackleg who threw and low and behold about 15 rows up a little Asian GT student was in mid-throw about to hurl another piece down at us. Well, this sends me into a fit and I commence to sending up profanities to him and informing him just how badly I could beat him. He is with friends and doesn't want to seem like a puddin' so he invites me to come up which i most graciously accepted. As I tore up the bleachers, a group of fellow Clemson fans sitting beside us corralled me by any method possible in time for the GT student to scamper out but not before security was there to pick him up at the portal. Probably the maddest I've been at a game by far. Throw ice at me all day but dont mess with the womens...

2011 USC Game

Posted: Apr 25, 2012 7:28 AM
 

I took my girlfriend to her first college football game ever this past November. Unfortunately it had to be at willy brice. Anyway, I was watching the pre-game stuff on the field and these two older and very large guys (Cock fans) in front of me are blistering drunk and jumping and dancing around. When they start to play the entrance music, you know that 2001 thing, they get wild and start pushing each other and jumping higher when the biggest one just stops... stares around a minute, then projectile vomits all over the young girl in front of him and himself. He then passed out and they had to bring in the EMS. It was awful. The smell, the chunks of food, the young girl. They ended up making us move into the aisle for half the game while it was cleaned and bleached. Not to mention, we lost and my girlfriend and I had cups and doo doo ice thrown at us on the way out. That was by far my worst experience. I am a recent Clem grad and I attended all home games and most away games and Tiger fans are never even close to them.


We have a winner.***

It was bad enough the way they acted towards Clemson. But when their own team made a bad play, they would curse and boo them as well. Right after we recovered the lateral, a bottle missed my head by about two inches. As I left the game, there was a "cowboy" passed out on the hood of a huge Caddy parked right at the stadium entrance. Slobber was running from his mouth. One of their huge donors!

If I had gotten pulled over on the way home, I would have been arrested purely by smell of alcohol because I kept getting drenched.

The Wake Forest game in W_S where we got our ##### handed to us. There was this smart alec "Clemson" fan? who ranted the whole game about Bowden. He was telling everyone how much TB made for each play and saying he had inside information that Bill Parcels would be named Clemson's head coach on Tuesday. He kept this up for three quarters. The more people told him gto shut up the more he raved. Finally someone sent security after him.

The second was at Duke a few years ago. Was sitting in the stands on the 50 yard line and there was this older couple in front of me who were obviously Duke fans although they were very complimentary toward Clemson. Then this drunk punk in Clemson gear sat down and tried to impress his girl by cursing this couple and telling them how awful Duke was. Made a total ### of himself to the point his girl got up and left. He then went somewhere and never came back. I apologized for Clemson stating all our fans weren't like that. The little old lady who must have been 80 smiled sweetly and said, "It's ok, we have our share of @$$-holes too!"

We headed for the exits early when WF was up 45-0 ... just as we got out to the parking lot, I guess TB had us lining up for a FG ... a Wake fan yelled from to top of the bleachers "Hey Clemson fans, where ya goin? You only need 10 more field goals, and you're right back in it" ... TB lost my support that day.

I think it was the '99 game. My dad and I sat near the top of the lower deck. The upper deck extended over my seat and there was something leaking in several spots all around us. The view was obstructed by columns. TV's were mounted on the columns but really just obstructed more of the view. Also, because we were on the visitors side, the TV's action actually ran in the opposite direction as to what was on the field - more annoying than helpful.

Also, the loss at Duke one week after winning in Miami.

1998 at SC
With a combined 3 wins between us, I sat a few rows behind the sc team bench. Knowing I was deep in enemy territory (not to mention we only had 2 wins) I was not obnoxious, loud or attention grabbing by any stretch. However, every time Clemson made a play, scored, etc I received complimentarily ice and popcorn as well as a few choice words.

2001 at Wake Forest
Surprisingly the worst fans I have ever encountered. They harassed and cursed me and my girlfriend the entire game.

2008 @ SC
Sitting in the Clemson section, a belligerent drunk Clemson fan standing on the twirly whirly ramps started getting into it with a sc fan below in the stands below. He continued with a vulgar tirade yelling stuff like “I #### your mamma / wife last night,” etc. Even with the Clemson fans demanding he remove his orange, he wouldn’t stop until some other Clemson fans introduced him to security.

liquor at a college game as there was in the stands at those high school games. Then the car damage in the parking lot afterwards if you had a non-gaffney sticker on your car. Friends (from Gaffney) jokingly acknowledge that Gaffney teaches Brick Throwing 101 to freshmen, and that some fail and have to take it again the next year.

Thu night at VT. Ugliest girls ever all cussing up a storm


Posted: Apr 25, 2012 1:19 PM
 

people so drunk they were literally passed out in the isles going up to the stands, some redneck grabbing my girlfriend's butt as we get to our seats, and then the game itself was awful. Plus I drove up and back the same day and went to work the next day. All in all, it was terrible.

2004..South Carolina/Clemson game. One of my best friends that went to Clemson got me a ticket (it was on the hill). Not being a Clemson fan, I kept to my self but there was this girl standing behind me (drunk out of her mind) kept tapping me on the shoulder and cussing at me.

04 Clemson/UNC game: Like the other game, my friend got me a ticket (on the hill). Had a man with his wife and little boy sitting near us. Somehow he found out that I was not a Clemson fan and then starting telling me to go to #### and cussing at me in front of his little boy.

08 Clemson/GT game: Went with my wife (which she went to Clemson). Walking towards the stadium, we had to go through a section of GT fans. They were trash talking everybody that went through there that was not GT. Our seats where in the upper deck and a couple of GT fans ruined the afternoon with the way they acted.

I can't remember having a truly deplorable stands experience, but I've had some bad ones. The worst away game experience was UGA in 1991, when a little-touted backup freshman QB named Eric Zeier torched us for something like 40 points. I think that's one of the few times I've felt physically in danger in the stands.

As far as home games, A drunk Clemson student threatened to kill me at the 2002 (Thursday night) shellacking vs. NC State because I asked him to stop threatening someone I had brought to the game. Didn't really ruin the experience or anything (since we were already getting torched) but it was the lowest-class fan display I've personally experienced.

I also remember durin pre-game game a few years back where a drunk frat boy tripped in the upper deck about 15 seats away from me and fell down 3-4 rows, right on top of a little girl who was about 9. She was scared to death and traumatized by it, and the a$$hole frat boy just got up and walked off without so much as an apology or even a backwards look. The girl's father wanted to beat the #### out of him, and I'm pretty sure if he'd decided to go after him several of us (myself included) would have helped.

sat in the middle of the orange and blue tie wearing frat boys since my buddy from HS was a student there and one of those guys...went to a frat party before the game and saw us lose like 9-7 or some crap like that, i think, to UVa.....drove all the way from Quantico, VA where i was stationed to see that mess.....i barely remember the year or the game, but i remember our offense getting stoned all day and those prep boys raising #### at my expense....miserable.....

1982 Clemson/UGA game

Posted: Apr 25, 2012 10:27 AM
 

It was the first night game in Athens history. Total drunkfest.

I was about 12 & had grown men throwing beer on me & yelling "f*ck Clemson" in my face while walking to the stadium. I was with a couple of friends & wanted to be tough so we walked way behind my parents. Good thing since my Dad missed it.

In the stadium numerous "Clemson sucks" in my face by men who are my age now.

I would never dream of doing that to a kid.

Growing up in Atlanta throughout the 80s whenever I wore Clemson gear anywhere I'd always get some "Clemson sucks or F*ck Clemson" comments. It was a very intense rivalry.

I got one from a NASCAR race back in the mid-1990's. We were at CMS and there was the Earnhardt (#3) fan drunk out of his mind running up and down in front of the stands before the race with a big ole #3 flag, hootin' and hollering the whole time. As an Earnhardt fan that was pretty embarrassing. During one of the first cautions, I went to the men's room and there was Drunky McDrunk passed out on the men's room floor. There was a long line at the horse trough, and a two guys in Rusty Wallace T-shirts proceeded to "miss" the horse trough and "opps" they just happened to hit Mr Drunk. I think Earnhardt finished laps down and Gordon won. Mr. Drunk had himself a bad day...

I had been warned by my UGA friends that I was attending with should Clemson win go straight to my car quitely and don't run into them along the way.

We lost loss and had we not I may have not made it out of the stadium. I was in the student section for starters and only had a huge smile on key plays and such. Kept getting hit physically and verbally throughout the game. This small guy shoved me from behind and at that point I stated had I not caught myself not only would the female in front of me (Dawg Fan) got hurt, but I would be going to jail with him & a few others. In the end we lost and everyone who was still around apologized/gave me respect for standing my ground except for the little man. Had we won I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have been allowed to walk away freely. I did manage to clear a good bit of the UGA students out during the third quarter as one female put it, "Just leave, your ruining it for everyone." ;)

On the walk back to the car I did not see one single cop. Made me realize my friend was not joking about find your car directly and quitely, should Clemson win.

I'm younger than most of y'all so I don't have as many to choose from but that would be it. I went with my girlfriend and we went to visit some friends' tailgate before the game. On the way there we were booed relentlessly and had many beer cans thrown in our direction. One guy even followed us for 100 yds yelling and when I turned around to confront him he ran behind his buddies. I can get over yelling at me but treating a woman like that really bugged me and I would have probably gotten arrested had that guy not backed down. Also, I went to the game in Auburn 2 years ago and everyone was really nice. I was in one of the Clemson sections in the upper corners and as we were walking out there was a 75 year-old man who was yelling at any Clemson fan he could see. It didn't ruin my trip it was just something I had never experienced before

Pregame, we had multiple groups of their fans come to where we were tailgating to cuss and give us the finger. They were going around to pretty much every Clemson fan they could find and doing it.

After the game, a drunk #### fan in front of us tells my dad "Good game" and reaches up to shake his hand. My dad goes to shake his hand and the guy tries to break his thumb and pull him down the bleachers. Luckily, his knees hit the support and kept him up. The guy tried to run and my dad kinda gave him a little shove in the shoulder and the guy fell down a few steps, then got up cussing. His friends started to pull him out, but the guy stops to cuss at an elderly Clemson fan on the way. Classy all the way.
