I grew up in Garland, Texas and from birth was taught to hate the Aggies. I was really looking forward to going to College Station, whipping the Aggies and basking in the glory. From the minute we arrived, we encountered gracious and hospitable Aggie fans. Ugh. They walked up to us in our Clemson gear and welcomed us. We had several great conversations about college football and both of our teams. Several of them mentioned looking forward to coming to Clemson next year and experiencing our environment. It was very painful to me to have to admit that they have many great traditions, an amazing stadium/facilities and a pretty impressive band (this from someone who isn't very interested in bands). There were a few bad apples, but not many. My reason for writing this is to encourage all Tiger fans to show the same sportsmanship and hospitality to the Aggie fans next year. There is a difference between not being a jerk and reaching out to be welcoming and hospitable. Keep It Classy Tigers!!!!
I live in Plano and was also at the game. Was amazing to see how friendly the fans were even after they’re close loss. Class fan base for sure and pretty awesome stadium/environment. I hadn’t been to a game there since ‘04 and was amazed at the stadium transformation. I know they spent $500M but that stadium had a ton of nice amenities that could benefit DV.
