Loudest Moment in Death Valley?

[3]
Posted: Jun 8, 2019 12:45 PM
 

I was rewatching the Syracuse game the other day, and got goosebumps with how LOUD the roar was when Xavier Thomas sacked Dungy at the end of the game.

That got me thinking....what are some of the loudest MOMENTS you can recall in the Valley? Not even sustained crowd noise for the whole game, but those plays that really stand out?

eyeballs were literally bouncing in their sockets. People beside me were screaming various things right in my ears, trying to have a mini conversation, and I never heard a word. The whole stadium felt like we were in an earthquake.

We was so loud at that game. Also the year we best Maryland who won the ACC because of our extra year of probation and we stomped them and boomer was most likely sick of us hearing us chant his name

2 - The "We Will Rock You" game v. FSU

3 - the 1977 loss to Notre Dame (pre-upper decks but it was still REALLY LOUD).

to go watch from the sidelines, had to leave the field because the vibrations were hurting his chest(I think he has a pacemaker) so that he could get medical assistance.

I just remember going kinda' deaf, where the roar sounded like it was in a tunnel and there was a tonal ring on top of it.

1988 "puntrooski" game. No one I saw sat, no one stopped yelling.

Side note. FSU had an RB named Sammie Smith. With FSU students in front of us on the Hill, my buddy would yell out, "Give Sammie the ball!" To which I would reply, "Sammie say he don't want the ball!"

FSU had something like 32 yards rushing in the first half.

We all know what happened the following year when Hugo came knocking and the team ran FSU out of the stadium in Tallahassie.

I was also there at the Puntrooski game. Loudest I ever heard Death Valley......

That was probably the loudest for an entire game.

But for a single 5 minute span, it has top be the 2006 Miami game.

All good answers above. Would like to add the Louisville game in 2016 when Leggett scored the go-ahead touchdown and also when we stopped them on fourth down to end the game. Also when our defense stop Dalvin cook on 4th Down on 2015 i believe. The valley was rocking

Back in the Danny Ford era I remember us getting an unsportsmanlike penalty for crowd noise. Can’t remember the game and it was the only time I remember it happening.

Clemson was undefeated in the ACC but on probation and ineligible for ACC Championship. Maryland was the default ACC champion regardless of the outcome of the game at Clemson. Boomer had MD in the student section red zone. The ACC had just instigated an excessive noise rule/penalty...probably aimed at Clemson. With the game wrapped up, MD was driving towards the green bank, back when the lower deck and green bank student sections were packed. Boomer gets under center, and Death Valley got LOUD. Boomer came out from under center and sort of pleaded to the ref. Clemson got an excessive noise warning. Eventually, the head cheerleader addressed the student section, and said that we should all be very quiet because Boomer couldn't hear. When Boomer broke the huddle, the head cheerleader got everybody to make the shhhhhhhhh noise...and everybody did! It was EERIE! Boomer attempted about a 10+ yard TD pass attempt to the back corner of the end zona and BRUTALLY overthrew it. The cool thing was a noise level loud enough to get warned for it, followed by this eerie shhhhhhhhhhhh noise.

Boomer turning his head towards the Clemson sideline while "fiddling" with his helmet and giving the finger to the fans on The Hill. Just made us louder!

UGA games -- absolutely but also any close games on 3rd down. Ford teams were all about Defense and ball control. Swinney/BV teams are now all about Defense and big play domination. Go Tigers!

Deafening. Unfortunately, not the results intended.

The trouble with that play is the linebacker had an interception go right through his arms. We would have been set up on the 25 yard line.

A very frustrating game.

Surprised no one else has mentioned this one yet. Right there with the Miami game.

Are you talking about the 2005 A&M game where Jad Dean kicked the game winning field goal??? There's no doubt that was loud, but personally I don't think it even compares to the game against Miami a few weeks later on that 3rd down sack late in the 4th quarter. I would put 2007 Boston College ahead of the 2005 A&M game. It's difficult to compare other games sitting in other seats, but I was in the student section from 2004-2007. Miami hands down.

Would agree with the stand against ND. Seem to remember it being rather loud for the safety against Georgia in I think '87.

Ummmmm funny no one seem to remember the 2007 BC game when Clemson officially set the record for the loudest ever recorded at a college football stadium. Huskies broke the record a few years ago.


How about Rod Gardner's catch?


Posted: Jun 10, 2019 9:51 AM
 

I was a kid & not in the stands that day, but seemed incredibly loud on TV. Would that rank in the top 5?


Re: Loudest Moment in Death Valley?


Posted: Jun 10, 2019 10:48 AM
 

Probably not as loud but I always loved the Rennie Moore sack at the end of FSU in 2011.
Hard to beat that late September/October 3:30 kick home game in The Valley. With the sun setting through the glass of the west end zone in the fourth quarter.

Great call from Nessler on this one "82 thousand in death valley, I don't think there's one that sitting"
