Help the Tigers Go to the Gator Bowl

You can help Dabo and the Tigers go to a New Year’s Bowl game by telling the Gator Bowl how much you want the Tigers to play in Jacksonville. Full Story »

Mr. Catlett

Good morning, I would like to make a bid for the Clemson Tigers to be selected for this years Gator Bowl. With the recent removal of the term "interim" from Head Coach Dabo Swinney's title, interest in Clemson football is at its highest level in a decade. This team is on a roll, and the fans are "all in." I assure you that by choosing Clemson you will reach levels of attendance and economic impact not felt in Jacksonville in years. Thank you for your time during you busy schedule.


Regards

Clemson “all in” Bowl Fan

Mr. Catlett,
Good Morning. I know you are probably being bombarded by emails from some of the top schools and football programs in the country as we speak to lobby for an invite to the Konica-Minolta Gator Bowl. I would just like to say that as a Clemson Alumni, living in New York City, I would love nothing more than to be able to plan a New Years trip to Jacksonville to join thousands of fellow Tiger Fans to support my team. Rest assured if Clemson University is given this opportunity, you will be very pleased with the results.

Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

Mr. Catlett,

I would like to lobby on Clemson's behalf to be the ACC representative in this year's Konica-Minolta Gator Bowl.

With the recent removal of the term "interim" from Head Coach Dabo Swinney's title, interest in Clemson football is at its highest level in a decade. Remember the last time a new Clemson coach was in your bowl game? – 1978 and Danny Ford! Give Dabo and the Tigers this same unique opportunity to showcase their talents in your bowl game.

This team is on a roll, is exciting to watch and the fans are "all in".

I assure you that by choosing Clemson you will reach levels of attendance and economic impact not felt in Jacksonville in years.

Best of luck with your decision and all of the planning to follow. We hope to see you on the 1st.

Regards,

Clemson Bowl Fan

RE: Konica-Minolta Gator Bowl

Mr. Catlett,

Good morning. I know you are a busy man, so I will make this brief. I would like to lobby on Clemson's behalf for a spot in this year's Konica-Minolta Gator Bowl.

Head Coach Dabo Swinney has the Clemson Tiger football program on track. The team starting from the seniors down have dedicated themselves to the success of the program and are all in 110%. I feel that a New Years Day bowl is what the Clemson faithful are anticipating and would help sell out the stadium and bring their Tiger Paw'd $2 bills (a tradition at Clemson) to Jacksonville in bundles.

Best of luck with your decision and all of the planning to follow. We hope to see you on the 1st.

I would like to lobby on Clemson's behalf to be the ACC representative in this year's Konica-Minolta Gator Bowl.

With the recent removal of the term "interim" from Head Coach Dabo Swinney's title, interest in Clemson football is at its highest level in a decade. Remember the last time a new Clemson coach was in your bowl game? – 1978 and Danny Ford! Give Dabo and the Tigers this same unique opportunity to showcase their talents in your bowl game.

This team is on a roll, is exciting to watch and the fans are "all in".

I assure you that by choosing Clemson you will reach levels of attendance and economic impact not felt in Jacksonville in years.

Best of luck with your decision and all of the planning to follow. We hope to see you on the 1st.

Regards,

Clemson Bowl Fan

How about we start winning a few big bowl games and then we can worry about going to distant locales.

Sent my email, Go Tigers!

Mr Catlett,
This email is to encourage you and your committee to select Clemson for this years Gator Bowl. I am a 1981 graduate and a Jacksonville resident for 23 years. I graduated the year we won our National Championship against Nebraska. What a great reward it would be for our players, coaches, and Solid Orange Fans that are “All In” to see a rematch of this great game. I know without a doubt that the Clemson family would support our new Coach Swinney and help make this a sellout and provide a much needed economic impact for our great city by the river. I know from living here in Jacksonville that the city has struggled to sell tickets to the past few Gator Bowls, the ACC Championship games, and other college games(ex FSU vs Colorado). Our city needs Clemson to provide that spark to help make our city a holiday destination.

Sincerely,
Joel Looper
Class of 1981 and resident of Jacksonville

You MUST invite Clemson to the Gator Bowl. You have a chance to showcase to all of college football fans (and youths) a team with character and heart. I am a 1998 graduate of Clemson. I have used this season as a teaching tool for my children. This team was down during the middle of the season. Subsequently, changes were made. The players and coaches came together, stood together and fought together. At the end, a 7-5 mark and most importantly, respect, was earned. You, the Gator Bowl, have an opportunity to show the country this example to send the message that no one should ever quit. The Tiger faithful and the nation would greatly appreciate it.

The article in the original post hints that FSU has a bigger TV audience, but we have a bigger traveling base. I chose to focus on points that will detract from FSU's allure!



The Clemson University Tigers deserve the bid to the Gator bowl over FSU. They have won 4 of their last 5 (albeit the loss was to FSU, it was the 3rd game with an interim coach). Meanwhile, FSU has lost 3 of their last 4. Clemson has rebounded and is on the upstroke while FSU circling the drain. Their collapse is almost as bad as Vandy's this year or USC-Columbia's last year. Furthermore, with our fresh hire of Interim Coach Dabo Swinney as our permanent Head Coach, we have another interesting aspect to add to the game and attract television viewers. Meanwhile, Bobby Bowden will be withering on the sidelines as a figurehead. You can hardly tout the Bowden-Joe Paterno all-time wins interest story anymore, because it is clear that Bobby has lost that edge and won't gain it back with his FSU team. Clemson is a team consisting of upstanding citizen's, while FSU has had players suspended this year for academic cheating and fighting on campus. Rewarding a team with FSU's off-the-field shenanigan's not the image you want to portray to viewers, especially young viewers and prospective college football players.

I hope you will seriously consider inviting the Tigers over the Seminoles for the Gator Bowl on Jan. 1. Best of luck in your coming decision, and I hope you will find us to be the better pick!
