Roy Philpott - pumper, realist, cheerleader? What does the

membership of Tnet say about the dude?


He's a pumper of sorts, but I think he offers pretty good

insight occasionally when you peel back his goofy persona.

He at least knows Clemson stuff pretty well.


You are right about the goofy stuff. Seems pretty

touchy on the radio w callers who have knowledge about stuff that goes against his grain. Real goofy tho


Outside of the 20 minutes driving to work and listening

off and on to Mickey, Roy's show is the only WCCP show I listen to, usually for the whole 3 hours.

And, he has only caught me thrice on TigerNet. :-D

i encourage you all to google ben millstead and read about him and then decide if he is a good man to run a clemson flagship station or work at anything clemson!


Probably your dumbest post.

this is just part of the things he did (and confessed to deputies). You really should read the article and then google the detective report. Keep in mind that a person that was part of this is the one that adopted the child. I bet the so called church paid for it.

http://www.pajamapages.com/holy-rage-at-the-spring-2/



On June 13, Ben Milstead mailed a signed resignation letter in my name to the provost at Anderson University, where I am a tenured associate professor of communication. On June 16, the provost emailed me to communicate his regret at my resignation. I informed him that it was a hoax and, thankfully, retained my job.

Milstead later explained that he had discussed the plan to send the letter with Maxwell, and they had wanted it to draw the university’s attention to my blog, with the goal of having them censor it or shut it down.

It didn’t work that way, and their assumption demonstrated a poor understanding of the place of debate within a Christian liberal arts institution. University administrators have never talked to me about my blog, either to praise it or condemn it. So long as I’m not speaking for the university–and I’m not–, our robust academic community encourages thinking and debate on a wide range of important issues.

About the adoption

Most chillingly, on July 18, just four days after the birth, an anonymous comment was submitted to my blog by someone calling himself Marco Polo that said, “Thankful children’s agencies read Pajama Pages.”? I knew what that meant–my blog was the reason the adoption had failed. I traced the IP address of Marco Polo to Ben Milstead, Maxwell’s friend and the person who had sent my fake resignation letter.

Exactly how it all went down, I don’t know, though Milstead shed a little bit of light on it in his statement to the sheriff in October. Said Milstead,

Josh Maxwell told me that Mr. Duncan had tried to adopt but the person making the decision was aware of the blog (independent of that particular adoption) and that it was one of the deciding factors as to who got the child.

He definitely wear orange colored glasses as he should. He works for the Clemson flagship station. He is a I believe a computer engineering grad of Clemson, very intelligent, and knows his sports not just Clemson sports. ESPN must recognize his talent, he works for them as well. I would like to see him do color or play by play on the Clemson broadcasts.

I'm pretty sure he went to NC State. Like most human beings, he doesn't handle criticism very well. The better the criticism, the worse he reacts. Again, he's human. I've been known to handle things like just as poorly, but it's not my job to handle radio callers on a regular basis.

The earlier poster is right about Mickey. The good news and bad news is that Mickey is oblivious to his limitations. Good for him, bad for us.

ok, roy says on his show that jack should have told the players that they needed to play better or he was going to lose his job. and he was serious. you cant make that stuff up. all roy needs is a red nose and big shoes. but hey, he has very high regard for himself. guess that is ALL THAT MATTERS

I'd be suspicious of anyone who tells you they heard something like that on the radio without telling you anything about why it was being said. Just remembering that specific quote (which I bet isn't even exactly what Roy said) makes me think the listener was trying to find something to complain about.

LORDY. I WAS LISTENING TO THE SHOW WHEN IT HAPPENED. HE AND BEN ARGUED ABOUT IT FOR MORE THAN A SEGMENT. IT IS EXACTLY TO THE WORD WHAT HE SAID. YOU CAN BELIEVE IT OR NOT. I COULD REALLY CARE LESS.

well doc, i dont give a rats behind what you think. how could i even think up something so stupid. maybe you could email ben at the station and ask him. what is the big deal anyway. it is certainly not the first idiotic thing roy has said. i have no beef with roy.

were you even listening to that broadcast? Or is your name Roy?

Don't tell me that I didn't hear it. You don't know what I heard and what deroberts says is exactly what he said.

I would swear on a Bible that is what he said.


I believe you. Why would you make something like

I'll put it this way . . . I listen to his show because he

covers Clemson sports and because of the interest and insight he has there, not because I find him to be particularly entertaining aside from that.

Roy is a lot of fun to listen to. He leans Pumper but when it comes down to it, he gets to the truth of the matter.


I just think he does a great job with his show

Posted: Jun 2, 2015 10:32 AM
 

I appreciate his enthusiasm and that he's not constantly negative about everything. I also really liked that he took fans to task for not showing up for basketball games during KJ McDaniels's last year.

useless. The show would be so much better if Roy wasn't constantly doing a back and forth with someone who's completely clueless when it comes to most sports topics.


Yeah, I don't get that guy either. I'm relatively new

Re: Roy is the best that is offered by that


Posted: Jun 2, 2015 7:27 PM
 

Funny. You seem alone in this. Try moving to Columbia. Clemson has a pretty good lineup compared to many places. Mostly local. I don't think any of the shows are unlistenable. Roy is my favorite. Walt may be hard for some because of personality. Mickey and Qualk and Dutch are fun and can help you get through a long work day. Again, talk to me after you move to Columbia.


He's a pumper, but


Posted: Jun 2, 2015 3:24 PM
 

having met and hung around with him several times at various Clemson events he's a die-hard Clemson fan who if he didn't run a rival website would likely be posting here among us.


So, what some I'm hearing: Roy is a definite sunshine


Posted: Jun 2, 2015 4:00 PM
 

pumper, but also somewhat entertaining to listen to. Ben is a religious weirdo. Have I got that right?
