Why do so many Clemson players just use their HS...

for their NFL introductions. Branch and Tankersley just used their high schools for tonight's Sunday Night game. Of course D Hop does too. Just seems like bummer as a fan not to hear them give Clemson props.

Branch said, “Death Valley, South Carolina.”


That works I guess. I couldn't understand him.

Not too bad. It's really no big deal. It's just fun when a bunch of players are saying Clemson. I like it for recruiting too. It may not even help us, but just in case.

Agreed


I guess they love their hometown, or they like being

There's something in these hills.


I don’t know, but I think it’s stupid.

Their prerogative of course, but I don’t have to understand it.

Brad Brownell: all-time winningest coach in Clemson men's basketball history, and only coach to beat North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

I don't watch NFL so I would not know. Seems like too many people go nutty when they get in "the league."


I don’t know, but I think it’s great sometimes

I've heard players call out their pee wee or middle school teams. I get a kick out of it. It entertains me.

If that were the case, everyone would be doing it

But I agree with original poster... seems to be a thing a lot of our players do and it definitely bothers me as well - like they’re not proud of where they came from. It’s insulting to those of us who have spent thousands of dollars attending games and supporting our alma mater.


Because I'm sure it means more for teachers and students

of the H.S. or grammar school to hear their school's name. I think it's pretty cool.

The post Championship TigerNet boards embarrasses them by belittling Clemson players who've done nothing, but get them in position to make a playoff run again?
