Congrats on one of the best posts ever on this board. The greatest insult of all is to completely ignore them and let the man weave his magic. They are so clueless that they don't even know it's happening and there's not a thing they can do to prevent it. Bravo, sir!

They don't have academic standards high enough to preclude athletes, like say ... Duke, Northwestern or Vanderbilt ... so talent shouldn't be a problem. As an independent in the '80s, they lost to The Citadel (Div I-AA), Furman (Div I-AA), Hawaii (twice) and Pacific when all four of those schools were simply horrible. To top it off, all of these losses came at home. In 1987, during their one chance to gain some national prominence, they were 9-0 until they lost to one of the poorest teams in the country that season -- Navy.

They played 100 years without ever winning a bowl game and have appeared in only 12.

In Lou Holtz' first year, he inherited a 1-10 team which went on to lose 11 games the next season -- at the time it was the longest losing streak in the country and still in the top 10. They have the Chicken Curse, which was put upon them by Clemson's Ben "Pitchfork" Tillman, because the Legislature of South Carolina didn't want Clemson to exist. Tillman and Thomas Greene Clemson (among others) fought tooth and nail to create a land grant institution for the state's poor farmers. Because of Tillman's frustration over the Legislature's snub, he slammed a pitchfork into the ground of South Carolina's campus and declared them "cursed." The Curse is what we sometimes point to as an ongoing cause for the Bobby Cremin's fiasco, the above losses to lesser teams, the first round Big Dance chokes against Coppin State and Richmond ... the list is endless. At one point during a recent season, the university even hired a witch doctor to attempt to remove the curse prior to a televised game against Georgia. Yep. You guessed it. They lost.

They have an overall losing record in football, which in and of itself is a mystery, because they have over twice as many alumni and plenty of money to compete with the majority of college programs in existence. Even Lou Holtz has an overall losing record and is an underdog to Georgia after an embarrassing loss to Virginia on national television this past weekend. Finally, don't forget that their greatest player ever, arguably, Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers, never scored a touchdown against Clemson. If those reasons don't get them in the Top 10 worst, then your rankings are completely bogus.


"your rankings"? whose were you talking about? ;)***

No, I wasn't aware of that. Did they also consider doing because of the civil rights movement? I have to say, that is the only thing that has ever really bothered me about the Tillman name still on the building.
