This program has come so far since that game.


That was awful.

Getting shutout and home in ‘98 was my lowlight.

I just remember thinking from the upper deck, well the defense and special teams are good enough to win VT the game without an offense.


Yeah, was at the 1998 37-0 home debacle with my sophomore son.

We must have had 15 illegal procedure calls. We looked like a high school team - no, make that a jr high team.

I’ve only left two Clemson games early in disgust- the 70-33 WVa beat down in the Orange Bowl and the 1998 Va Tech game. I have to admit the drive back to Charleston after the Miami loss took forever!

Finally, how in the world do we get Va Tech at Blacksburg at night in December?? Looking like temps in the upper 20s/low 30s and a snowstorm coming in from the Midwest. Just perfect for a game that basically determines if Clemson makes it to the ACCCG for the Notre Dame rematch!

Go Tigers!


If you looks at the stats, we should’ve blown them out.

But a pick 6, punt return and a kickoff return for a TD spelled doom. Beamer ball showed its ugly head that night

Exactly. Would be great to have some special teams and defensive success Saturday.


What year was it up there - some dude - Corey Moore or

Guy single-handedly destroyed us. Deflated. That’s a great description of me after that debacle.

Yeah, they almost killed Streeter that day... only QB beating I've seen that bad was Whitehurst vs Texas Tech in a bowl.

I'm just trying to keep Anna Lee company.

That '07 game really bummed me out. I stewed after that loss.


That was the year they almost broke

Jacoby Ford in half on a bubble screen. I’ve never been more PO’d leaving a football game than that day.

on our WR the whole game.

Gee, lets keep running the bubble screen.... I hope they're not going to do what they've been doing the first 7 times they saw it.

Further, I know Bud Foster was a good DC, but how could you not know what they were going to do on Defense.

We ran for over 300 yards the week before vs GT against a mostly 5 man front and 7-8 in the box.

Lets not try to force our will and get the zone read running game going. Instead, we'll make Cullen Harper throw 66 times (that is the actual # of pass attempts from that game), and leave CJ and James Davis with 6 carries each.

GD Tommy Bowden and Rob Spence frustrated me to no end.

That game was a Rob "the Mad Scientist" Spence special***

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