Orange britches and Boston College: Swinney says he isn't here today without that win

The first time Clemson wore orange pants at Boston College, the Tigers escaped Chestnut Hill with a 27-21 victory that was the first of Dabo Swinney’s career as a head coach. The Tigers will once again don the orange britches at Boston College this Saturday and hope to bring a trophy back to Clemson.

So our uniform being "uniform" is a perfect example of how Dabo addresses structure, priorities, details, and having a system where everyone is ALL IN.

I so agree w what he has done here. I do seem to remember a time well before his Bama time where the Tide wore white helmets for road games. Of course there were some early 60's years where our Tigers wore white jerseys at home too according to film I've seen

main reason we wore white so much in 60's is that the Orange Dye that Russell used then faded badly. After about 3 washings they looked 10 years old.


Did he mention our new chrome helmet tradition?

A quick look at the physiques of the players in the 2008 photo is a great indication how far the program has come.

I hate teams like Oregon who's uniforms are anything but uniform. But then again I'm a big fan of tradition, in most everything.

Moreover, uniformity is a key to brand recognition. Corporations rarely change their logo/look. When they do , it's often counter productive.

Wearing whatever garish bull**** that Nike, their corporate owner...errr, I mean donor, tells them to wear each week *IS* Oregon's tradition.


I like your plan Dabo

It did seem like too much attention was paid to the uniforms.


If The Number 1 Team Comes To Death Valley To Play Us....---

It would be good to see us in orange helmets ..purple jerseys with white or orange pants.

It represents business to be done .....Battle-War with the number 1 team during the regular season at home all wrapped into one.

If we faced the number 1 team on the road. ...we could wear all white with orange helmets or purple pants with the white jerseys and of course our orange helmets.

Umm. What?


I like TB and always will, but he was into a lot of BS....

..that had nothing to do with FB success, like weird uniform combos, critical of the Tiger Tailgate show/ect........DABO on other hand is very adept in knowing what is/isn't important....


Another thing Dabo brought back was the bigger Tiger Paw logo on the helmet.

I’m not sure if Bowden made the paw smaller or if it started with Hatfield or Tommy West but it was definitely a lot smaller during Bowden’s tenure.
